This is not necessarily bad. Neglect is like ignore, but worse. When you neglect something, bad things happen. You neglect a child, or an animal, or your work. When you neglect something, you are ignoring a duty, however small. "Deciding the problem was unimportant, he dismissed it." "He ignored the problem until it went away." "He neglected the plant until it died."
