just to confirm here
people are arguing over the inconvenience between scrolling down a page vs blotted out posts?
thats what were having a 70 post dispute about?
@Smmenen soo how is ignoring(scrolling past) someones post not going to result in the same insulation as blocking(post truncated) exactly? if both have the same effect of person A not getting information form person B does it really matter "how"/which way? in both cases your echo chamber will occur.
Context might generate a different response based upon the reason someone is skipping a user's post:
As I said:
The 'signal-to-noise' example illustrates this well. In a particular thread, the reason to block a poster for this reason is one user's belief that the poster in question is posting "noise" - posting ideas or responses that aren't on point. Yet, that may simply be a function of the specific discussion, rather than the poster's habits or tendencies. Yet, permitting a block function would cause that poster to miss the "signal" the user might provide in another thread.
