Oh Amalek is just going to love this... now he'll never shut up with his spamming.

Edit: @Atko, in light of this change, I humbly request that you guys get the block user feature working pronto. If Amalek and the copy pasta spammers like him can't be stopped with Negative CCP or Submission limits, I want the option to just block their junk outright.

Ability to block individual users is definitely coming.

What good is that? Being able to block him is just averting our eyes. The subverse would still be filled with spam, we just wouldn't see it. New users, and new people who don't have an account yet would though, and that wouldn't be good.

It is not our job to get rid of the spam. That is the Moderators job, and eventually auto-mod as well, when that is available.

If I see spam, I'll report it and then make a decision as to whether or not I block the User posting it.

It is then out of my hands.

Perhaps if enough people block a person on a certain subverse it's brought to the mods attention. So say there's a really disruptive user that isn't technically breaking any rules the mods can use that info to decide if a user should be banned for the benefit of the overall community.

Seconded. We are going to be in desperate need of user blocking with this change.

That still doesn't help as those who haven't registered or are newly registered will still see amalek and other spammers. IOW, blocking users like that helps individuals, not Voat.
