Hmmm, along with statuses that can be posted by individual members (that almost, almost makes the thoughts today section obsolete)and you can block certain members........that has it's upside and it's downside. Blocking members make it a lot easier to avoid flame wars and trolls, but a little too easy. Blocking members could be a feature that's either very beneficial for this forum or not so good.
I have a feeling that some members are going to go out there and block a lot of members....then at some point they'll see that maybe they've blocked too many in order to keep up with the forum and then they'll unblock a few. I'll probably rarely use my block feature. And I think at some point every member will have their own equilibrium in the end.
So, I think the block feature will work well, in time.

The block feature is going to be the death of this forum, just like how the Karam feature destroyed it for a time being - it's going to be abused. I hope Webby has the power to remove that function, because it probably will be abused.....
^I have a feeling that it will abused at first. But I think members are responsible enough that they'll find some type of equilibrium. If someone blocks so many people that they block themselves out of the forum because they can't see anything then, oh well. But I do believe that for a short period of time it may be abused. For a short period.
