This is something that Twitter does very well. When you block someone on Twitter, they can't view your content and you don't see their content. There are no further interactions between the two of you.
Even the mere threat of being blocked like this can be a powerful deterrent. A potential abusive poster might think twice about continually posting abusive posts because this person will find him or herself in an empty forum after being blocked by everyone.
If Yahoo implements this, I suspect the rate of abusive messages will be cut down by 50% or maybe even as high as 90%. I do miss a proper blocking tool like this and wish Yahoo employees would seriously consider implementing it.
We appreciate your post! Our team is looking into this and will take appropriate action.

The lack of punishment for the abusive posts have sadly made personal attack posts along with various other off topic spam prolific in many boards.
