    Question Should not be ignored

    Is this expression correct? -
    "Sth should not be ignored." It is to mean that 'sth' is so important that we should not omit it in, e.g., our discussion.

    I'd rather the sentence read"Nothing should be ignored" except, of course,if the particular thing would be mentioned..."This message should not be ignored"...but not "something should not be ignored"...If you don't want to mention "what" should not be ignoredthen I'd prefer the first sugeestion!

    In my sentence 'sth' was to mean anything, for instance:
    "This issue should not be ignored in our discussion."
