    Viral Hide and others,
    I really enjoy this site. I frequent this place more than any other part on the web.. However, is there a way to curb harassment and negative users? I am referring to one guy in particular who is on the regular message boards. His handle is “Steve.” While he doesn’t outright spew out vulgarities or threats, his rhetoric is disruptive, particularly regarding Kathleen Kennedy and the new ST.
    I know this is “freedom of speech,” but can you moderators post more often in the regular comments with “warnings?” I do not like to go to the regular comment section anymore because of people like Steve.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll try to check it out, and at least make sure this is seen by @Viral Hide and others.

    As for me, I recently decided to start using the report button more often if I see something that feels over the line. I used to ignore postings that went over the line but I'm not going to do that any more. Sorry to the moderators if that leads to more work for you, as you have to decide if reports are valid. I will probably give a grace period of some weeks after TROS is released for people to vent their feelings. But I certainly don't want to see insults or anything here again. Let's be peaceful and have thoughtful discussions especially about things we see different or don't like. I'm pretty confident that much increasing my use of the report button will not.

    Are you aware of the "ignore" feature?

    while we sort this out, you can you can use the down-arrow to block the user on the site:

    or, go to your Disqus page, find the user, and use the ellipsis to "block" them from your viewing.

    it's an imperfect system because you will still see others responding, but it might take away the temptation of responding yourself (and cut down on your aggravation as well). if people don't feed the trolls, they do go foraging elsewhere. : D

    and, as always, use the report feature liberally. it gets our attention more quickly so we can stop bad behavior before it spirals out of control.

    Harassment? Yes. That is what the TOS is for.

    Negative users? - lol - Use the tech @ ur fingertips, bro.

    Wait. So no harassment....

    Aaaaand no threats... just an opinion [there's that dadgumm free speech again] that @Ghost of Obi Wan Kenobi doesn't like?
    That's rich. And chocolatey.... like fresh Bantha PooDoo.


    ***

    So, in other words:
    The Cantina is NOT the Empire. Nor are the Moderators Nazis.

    Asking the Mod team to YELLOW STAR another user is SUUUUUPER sketchy.




    This post does NOT contain sarcasm.
