Remember blocks aren't a "verse downvoat" and shouldn't necessarily be interpreted as bad.

For example I block every porn verse I see- not because I hate porn, but because I use Voat primarily for news and the odd maymay and I already have sources of smut, so here for me it's just clutter.

I'm well aware that they're not intended as a downvote and that treating them as such on some subs will lead to a false impression, however there are a near infinite range of reasons for blocking a sub so I feel that is a consideration that each user should make for themselves. If we don't have all the numbers we can't consider the reason for the numbers.

It'd be cool to see the numbers, for sure. Not arguing against that, only advising caution in how they're presented.
