So hated that they are absolutely ignored[edit]

  1. (of another person) So hated that they are absolutely ignored.
    He is dead to me.

Is this a definition of dead? I don't feel like dead as this connotation so much as the whole phrase he is dead to me implies a desire to ignore that person ("he"), but unless my experience is misguiding me, it doesn't necessarily mean hatred. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:26, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

I think it's inaccurate. It means "as far as I'm concerned, he is (or might as well be) dead", i.e. gone, not available to speak to, etc. Having said that, there is the implication that the person has chosen to ignore them deliberately. Equinox 20:36, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes I agree, someone said it to me as a joke once, but didn't imply hatred (even in a joking way) but that my taste was so poor I was beyond help. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:39, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
