There's another thread suggesting a tag/flair system. I think that's about as far as it should go in terms of a "nemesis" list. People's bad behavior tends to be self-revealing, and I think drawing lines in the sand goes against the nature of the site.

That said I'm 100% for flagging Nazis and racists.

But if the site is self moderated, for every racist user, every user will need to block a user once, where as if the shared list was crowd sourced, the action would need to be taken once.

Hubski has 10 users, scenario 1: one racist user, posts a comment, 9 people filter the user

Scenario 2: 10 users, one makes a list and adds the filter, same effect if subscribed to the list.

Hubski has 1 million users, 10 racist users

Scenario 1, each posts a racist comment - ten million filter actions must take place to 'self moderate' the racism

Scenario 2, a user takes 10 filter actions publicly, same effect as with scenario 1, for all subscribed.

Yup, get them early and get them often when they change their names. Better still give them no audience and if they are so lonely that they have to create an anti-Nazi to have an argument with, that seems like a good thing.
