Stop blocked trolls from still answering posts in the comment boxes of other people who answer.
Trolls who have been blocked can still torment their blocker by using other peoples comment boxes. If they are blocked, they should be completely blocked. They should not be able to leave nasty comments in the comment boxes of genuine people who have answered a question in good faith.

Eliminate the anonymous feature will allow mt to block the trolls that destroy YA.

Not a good suggestion. The propagandists, for instance, in the Politics section use the blocking feature to post racist, divisive statements and eliminate all opposing views. The comments allow blocked people to at least object. Since Yahoo doesn't properly monitor and trolls are constantly posting repetitive bigoted garbage, even after being reported, the comments permit people an opportunity to oppose the propaganda.

If a troll blocks me, then that is fine but I hate blocked people using comment boxes of others just to mock me and my question. Blocked should mean blocked and no longer able to write anything in my questions

Unfortunately trolls use the blocking feature more than anyone else. I suspect that if this was implemented it would serve their purposes more than it would solve any problems.

There are people other than trolls. A troll blocked my answers BECAUSE I was warning other good people that they WERE a troll ( asking the same question over and over and over and over again )
How can I warn top people about these scum that give the whole forum a bad name?
