If people feel the need to silence members, they should not be on a debate site
I have never blocked anyone and never will, but the current way that blocking works seems pretty pointless. IF I was going to block someone it would be because I didn't want to see their posts, making posts of blocked users invisible to the blocker just sounds like making the block feature actually do something (it currently does nothing).

  • Is this technically feasible?
It should be very easy to implement. It's just a WHERE clause. 

To those who bear objections to this proposal, I ask that they explain their objection as well as the reasons for it. It may also be useful if you make it a bit more clear your understanding of this proposal.
It sounds utterly dysfunctional. I guess depending on how much it's used, but it seems like it's making work in relating to people on this website. This is sitcom shit. "Can you please tell your father..." "Tell him your fucking self."

A Zedku for Debateart.


I'm turning Chinese,

I think I'm turning Chinese,

I really think so.

Paraphrasing a song I vaguely remember,

Big Bro's.


Blocking is futile,

And ignorance is bliss.

And over-sensitivity is a modern curse.

Though one would suggest that,

The over-sensitive get their kicks 

From being over-sensitive.

In today's Nanny State Western World,

Over-sensitivity is power.


OOOH I'm soooooo offended by that.

So ignore it you stupid d**kh**d.

And stop f**king whinging.


Just expressing,

A personal opinion.

If you feel that this is aimed at you,

Then,

You're far too sensitive.

So Man up,

Or Woman up,

Or gender neutral,

Or what the f**k.

giving each individual the ability to filter out content they personally find offensive is NOT "shadowbanning"

and giving mods an option to filter out content they deem "unfit" for public consumption is NO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THEY ALREADY DO

the main difference here is that under my proposal - - people who are not easily offended could "uncheck" the OPTIONAL mod filter

The goal is for the atheists in the religion forum to block every theist so they have their own little private forum. They don't have to read our posts, they don't have to respond to us and they can say whatever they want and it not come back on them by the mods cuz all they have to say is well they can't read anything.
If they ever actually achieved this, they would just leave the site to find a new forum where they could have the same argument with a bunch of religious people who don't want to talk to them ad nauseum. Extremely online atheists have an all-consuming drive to invade any online space where religious discussion is taking place and shit all over it with their midwit takes. It's a strong biological urge that they'll never be able to shake, and this proposal robs them of their satisfaction.

Shadow banning, also called stealth banningghost banning or comment ghosting,[1] is the practice of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from some areas of an online community in such a way that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. For instance, shadow banned comments posted to a blog or media website will not be visible to other users accessing the site. Also, reducing the visibility, or impressions within the "main feed"

By partly concealing, or making a user's contributions invisible or less prominent to other members of the service, the hope may be that in the absence of reactions to their comments, the problematic or otherwise out-of-favour user will become bored or frustrated and leave the site, and that spammers and trolls will be discouraged to continue their unwanted behavior or create new accounts.[1][2][3]

Personally I think this is a good idea, and I remember proposing a similar idea on DDO. It could be difficult to implement, but I think it could be useful to filter out content we don't want to see. Also, where it might get confusing is with replies, if others are replying to a post that we have hidden.

It seems to me that it's literally not to all be on the same page. That does not seem conducive to good discussion.

I think I'd prefer strict and principled modding.

What good discussion is there to be had by two or more individuals who do not intend to engage each other?

Fair enough.

Obviously none. But we'll have to navigate their bullshit.
