It's behaving as intended. When people first asked for that
feature they just wanted to turn off any alerts for that user - the
unread counter was still supposed to reflect that fact that there
were unread messages in the room.
As for having a UI for managing ignored users - duly noted.

if I look at this harshly, "ignore alerts for user" is a
I've already got requests from people saying "can you make it so
that I get growl notifications whenever a certain user
speaks?" - presumably they like their bots more than you like yours
So taking both sides of that request into account, what's really
needed is yet another level of notification preferences. Currently
there's the default settings and the per-room settings. It looks
like it also needs per-user settings too.
So I'm going to have to say yes, that level of control will come
- but it's a bigger feature that will take more time than just
cobbling together a new menu item.
