Tools/features to help users deal with trolls
Here are some tools/features to help users deal with trolls and trolling:
- Allow users to block other users so that they don't see their posted questions or answers. There are some troll users here that I know will never ask a legitimate question, and that will only post abusive answers . . . for example, there are users only ever post racist questions. A feature hiding their posted questions, answers, and comments would be nice - if I can't see it, then it won't bother me.
- Allow users to hide their questions and answers from others users, so that they can't see them; you can hide your list of questions and answers on your profile pages, but it would nice to have the ability to hide my posted questions and answers from trolls - if they can't see it, they can't troll it.
- Users you have blocked should also be blocked from posting comments at your questions - at the moment, if blocked, they just spam their abuse in the comments areas of other user answers.
" Allow users to hide their questions and answers from others users,"
and how do you suggest they hide questions from trolls without hiding them from people who want to answer?
