!Hubzilla Support Forum
Hi there, we now meet Simon the Troll and we now have to deal with blocking a user. I recall there are ways to block a user from my hub but I realize that we all need to discover Simon and block 'em separately on each hub.
So, here is my thought; is there a need for a distributed blocking mechanism or at least a kind of warning mechanism. Before we even reach world domination we will eventually stumble on our first threatened user, the first sexual abuse, the first fraud and in this case there is not a single point to contact, each and every one of us must both discover the problem and block it. Thinking of it many face-book frauds would work here too (like pretending being a friend on vacation with a stolen wallet and passport) but I am not as highly specialized on Hubzilla as the techs are on face-book.
I realize this need to be scrutinized and done with delicate care, we would like to distribute an indication of a troll but not start a bad reputation because of an misunderstanding.
Perhaps we need to do some strategic and philosophical thinking here?
