- Does Hubski not ever ban users?
Even better! We let YOU PERSONALLY ban ANYONE YOU WANT.
In the real world, people have to be convicted of heinous crimes to be 'blocked' from society. Imagine if you could mute anyone you don't like, and never hear from them again! On Hubski, you can! With just three simple steps:
2. On the left side of the page, under 'moderation,' click the 'block' checkbox
3. Click the nearby 'Update' button
And voilà! BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

In all seriousness, there are two general governmental approaches to handling undesirables: Nanny State (often employed by Socialism), and Liberalism (Classical, Social; a.k.a. Libertarianism). We take the liberal approach. We don't tell you who you can and can't hear from. We're not your parents. You can block anyone you want.
If someone is generally bad, everyone blocks them, nobody sees them, they eventually get bored, and leave. This generally works. Until someone posts something particularly nutty, and a lot of other people start shouting 'ban the witch slanderer!' and we admins become confused. We're like, 'But, you can block them? Did you know you can block them? The button is right over there. You'll never hear from them again. Do you see the button? It's...it's right there.'
I wrote this last year during the HubskiGate, and never posted it. Figured things have calmed down enough to share.
