I will use the ignore when I expect the assertion failure but want to continue.  Usually when the assertion was added because something strange happened, and Im trying to find what assumption in the function stack was broken.

Because it's "Abort", "Retry", "Ignore" that tells you that "Retry will launch the debugger", so it doesn't actually mean retrying.

Do you really mean you use the Ignore functionality?
