Ability to block people from posting in your thread
Posted: Posted October 28th, 2018 by #85

A possibility? Has a chance of being abused, but a good idea. Trying to have a serious discussion in some threads when certain actors come in and derail can be tiresome.

This would absolutely be abused and would absolutely be used to silence people with differing opinions or anyone who has anything (rightfully) negative to say about the content of the thread. If this becomes a features then the entirety of your problematic threads should probably be deleted too.

Sounds like you are requesting a safe space? Somewhere that is temperature controlled, below 32 degrees?

Just block whoever is triggering you. Or make a secret club to circle jerk in.

Simple : a new thread can always be created

PSA: Do not report threads like this one. This is a legitimate feature request with no objectionable content.

That would be racist by blocking people from posting in your own thread. You would block all black users here from posting in yours, itís not surprising that you would ask xhin to allow posters to block certain users from responding to your own thread. Watch out everyone this is a slippery slope because #85 is bringing the kkk to gtx0!

Now you do what they TROLLED ya

What if it was limited to, say, once a month? Certainly the feature is less of a hassle than making some "club", do people even use that feature a lot?

That is still discrimination which constitutes racism. This is the public internet, this isnít your private Facebook account or xat.

John Locke says that everyone has the freedom for life, liberty, and PROPERTY aka INTERNET SOCIAL NETWORKING

Iím not trying to be a Joseph McCarthy here.

It's a bad feature idea in general.

This. Tbh I'm still opposed to there even being a block feature. It's shit anyway since you can still see people replying to the person and what the person said by extension. It legitimately doesn't work for shit.

Itís like the fairness doctrine which Obama tried to pass which suppressed free open speech on the radio.

Posted October 28th, 2018 by Weid man

I think you're forgetting that you're the most frequently-blocked user and this idea would backfire as you'd suddenly find yourself unable to post in most threads.

Aka #85 just fucked himself in the ass.

Posted October 28th, 2018 by Weid man

Also I do want to have a kind of "open club" where users can post in there until blocked by the club so this would fall into that idea.

Taking the post to court and asking the judges famov and arch if the United Nations allows such a thing like this. This IS political. Banning people from posting in your own thread is of a narrow stance.

Well before you do this you should probably fix blocking somehow (assuming that's even possible). It really completely ruins the point if you can see what they're saying through someone else quoting them.

Posted October 28th, 2018 by KnokkelMillennium

Yeah I agree. There's a bit of a technical issue there because there's no hard way to quote them, but I think I can maybe finagle something by tracking text highlights and/or doing post matching when submitting a reply.

Let the gtx0 judges famov and arch tell if this is constitutional or not. But arch lives in the UK and follows parliamanet.

Alternative solution : dont allow excessive derailing, which the mods seem to be doing a good job of doing right now. Maybe this isn't an issue.

Your original message was a derailment from the topic itself!

Edited October 28th, 2018 by KnokkelMillennium

Iím bringing the entire site here because we are about to have a communist manifesto regimes by suppressing free speech on certain conditions. This is the fairness doctrine.
