@Xhin: block feature

What are your ideas behind how the block feature handles altnames? While I understand that if the block feature also blocked altnames, it may be abused in order to discover who an altname belongs to, the fact that it doesn't apply to altnames could also be abused to get around blocks and talk to someone that does not want the user talking to them. Do you think that there might be a better way to handle both sides of this?

Thank you for the option to completely hide posts instead of just collapsing them, though. That was necessary.

They'd have to first know that you're blocking them though. At the moment, people don't know whether they're being blocked or just ignored. There's a lot more work involved in figuring out that you're on blocklists and making altnames than there is in just blocking new altnames.

I also want to avoid any situation that encourages people to make new accounts.

@anyone who isn't nullfather: I'll address the other blocking post as well.

The block feature tells you if you are being blocked (not sure if it tells you who is doing it, but I believe it tells you how many people are doing it). Dooku had me do a test with him a week or so back.

Yeah, you can get a number of people that are blocking you, you just don't know who they are.

My point is, for example, IKM knows someone is blocking him, but he doesn't know whether it's Jubei or not (or at least didn't until I told him).

Your example isn't really relevant to the scenario nullfather was talking about.

If you know 3 people are blocking you that's reason enough to consider an altname, but also if you have reason to believe a few people are blocking you and then the number roughly backs it up then you know.
