My friend is ignoring me - what should I do?
Sorry this is long, but I'd appreciate your opinions!

I'd give it a break trying to contact her for a while. Just let it go and see if she comes to her senses and responds to you. I think it's kind of a passive-aggressive move to get attention. Don't fall for it! Hopefully she'll snap out of it.
well ive ignored a 'friend' a couple of times. its not something i enjoyed b'c i always do everything to make a relationship work until finally i either end it or just let it die. heres an example,i ended a friendship because i didnt feel my 'friend' was really treating my like a friend,like if we all went out ,she wouldnt really talk to me but to the others in the group and didnt initiate conversation with me but seemed interested in me by smiling and staring. at first i thought she was just uncomfortable or super introverted(which i can be so i would totally understand) but she was really quite the conversationalist with other ppl. the real tipping point for me was when i called her to discuss something from work, and i asked her how she was and she laughed at me. i never 'discussed' this with her about it made me felt. i just said that i had enough already. i would be polite to her, but no small talk or email exchanges. i didnt delete from my facebook b'c that would be too mean. she didnt react to it very well and got rather vindictive by spreading rumors about me at work about how i was cold and hurting her blah blah blah.
