Usenet Style Kill Files (a.k.a. The Ignore List)
Short, concise description of the idea
Never see a stray electron from an Ignored user ever again.
Full description of the idea
This was brought up a long time ago, but I thought I'd re-suggest, add more detail and get more feedback.
Add a user to your Ignore list and as long as you're logged in, you:
- never see posts from that user in a community
- never see a comment from that user in a community
- never see a comment from that user in another user's journal
- never see that user's journal in your FriendsFriends view
- never receive e-mail notification of that user's comments to you whether you are the original poster or a commenter
As per scottfreeman, blocked comments would be displayed as something like this:
---"Ignored User Comment (click to display)"
An ordered list of benefits
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
