Anti-sign.

Leaning into echo chamber forum design degrades both the quality of discussion and the userbase. Ignore does the job on a personal level and moderation exists take care of issues on a public level, rather than incentivizing the hamfisted combination of them both via a low effort block response.

How about an option to automatically add everyone on ignore to block as well?

I mean..... it really should have just been included in the first place.

If you mean "nothing at all like 1984 but I want to sound edgy" then you're correct. Because I don't really remember O'Brien really mentioning "block" or "ignore" while talking about the Party.

I have never blocked anyone literally ever, mainly because I rarely go on the boards. But I agree that it should be easy to do.

The block feature should be removed. I don't think users should have control over what another user can see or what topics another user can post in. As it stands, there are people who block others simply for disagreeing with them. If you wish to ignore someone and censor yourself, that's fine; but having the ability to censor others defeats the purpose of discussion.

Either remove the block feature or have it regulated by mods so that blocking actually occurs in instances of true harassment instead of "I don't like your opinion, now you can't ever participate in any topics I create."

I agree as well.

What's ironic is that this selfsame explanation was given by a lead mod in the past as to why there WOULDN'T be blocking on these boards:

What you are asking for is a Block feature which is never going to happen as we are never going to allow users to directly control what other users are able to view on public boards.

Users continued to want this feature despite the drawbacks so the administration decided to go for it.
