Make It Harder for Trolls to Use Virtual Gifts

Make It Harder for Trolls to Use Virtual Gifts

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow people to restrict not which virtual gifts they receive (sponsored vs non sponsored vs none) but rather from whom they receive them (only friends vs only registered users vs anyone.)

Full description of the idea
When I ban a user, I don't want them to be able to send me anonymous virtual gifts. In fact, having had a problem with trolls, I only want friends to be able to send them. I know that I am not the only user who has had this problem. The gag gifts, like flaming bag of poo, are particularly prone to abuse.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allowing people to determine who is allowed to send them virtual gifts would give fewer people reason to deny them entirely.
  • Most people who have been trolled would feel more secure knowing that this is not a way that trolls can reach them.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • You'd have to do some coding, I suppose.
