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.

You just want to use the website and have someone else keep it nice for you.

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.

I see a possible problem with hivemind blocking on some subverses where mods most certainly aren't neutral. Such feature would make it very easy for mods to silence people who disagree with the general opinion of that subverse.
