The closest question searching found was Connotatively neutral alternatives to "ignorant"? which doesn't really help me.
I'm trying to find synonyms for the word "Ignore" that don't change the meaning pretty drastically. Looking on http://thesaurus.com/browse/ignore pulls up the following as the top choice:
But in context this don't seem accurate to me, take:
I ignored the dog while I was walking.
I avoided the dog while I was walking.
One has a certain active feeling to it. I actively avoided the dog. Ignore is much more passive. By definition:
Ignore: refuse to take notice of or acknowledge
Avoid: keep away from or stop oneself from doing
Which confirms the idea. Ignore is without notice or acknowledgement. Avoid must have noticed or acknowledged to then keep away from.
So, the question is what would a better synonym be for Ignore that keeps the passive nature?
For the sake of question what I plan to use it for is along the lines of:
Unlike RF Tags, our advanced laser system ignores all RFI.
Our advanced laser system was developed to ignore all duplicate tags.
You can quickly see that Avoid doesn't work:
Unlike RF Tags, our advanced laser system avoids all RFI.
Our advanced laser system was developed to avoid all duplicate tags.
