Yeah l would agree, but would think the best solution to that would be for members to not rage-report every single post which offends them slightly and not build up a pile of reports motivated by personal dramas or whatever, there's probably enough reports to work through on scammers, sleazebags, actual bullying to work through without the report button being used as an aggro tool.Of course it's appreciated. It would be sadistic to expect the volunteers serving this community to work even harder. If I'm not mistaken, they're all still suicidal themselves. I know I'd never be able to do their job. I really miss @Symbiote, btw.
Would also like to reiterate here that it doesn't reduce personal drama, a fair few threads have been derailed by block related chat and it's not great imo when members discuss another member in pejorative terms from behind a block so this member in question can't see it, which I've seen a few times. It's certainly poor form when members with several thousand posts are publicly airing a one-sided view of why a block took place which could facilitate wider bad feeling towards an individual and lead to wider ostracisation.
I'd also add that this is a forum which supposedly holds "providing information" as a primary purpose - if a user is blocked by someone who starts a thread that entire thread is invisible, and if that thread is informative that individual user is barred from receiving that information.
