Ignoring the Summoning conditions is a phrase coined by Kevin Tewart of Upper Deck Entertainment to allow for flexibility when Summoning LV Monsters with either "Level Up!" or "Level Modulation", although this term has been applied to many other groups of cards. Cards that ignore the Summoning conditions essentially bypass the Summoning requirements written on the Monster Card being Summoned and allow it to be Summoned regardless of its conditions. Such Summons are counted as being 'Summoned by the required card effect' by the card that precedes it, i.e. "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6" is on the field and "Level Up!" is used. "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" will be Summoned since the effect mimics that of the effect of "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8" that would normally by required to Summon it.
Nomi monsters cannot be Special Summoned from the Graveyard or Banished Zone even by 'ignoring their Summon Conditions', if it has not been properly Special Summoned by the Summoning condition written in its own text first.
Nomi monsters can be Special Summoned from the hand/Deck, regardless, but note that this is not a proper Special Summon, so if the monster is later sent to the Graveyard, it cannot be Special Summoned at all.
