Mute & Block

Greetings!

Before I participate on a forum I usually like to know if there’s a Mute and/or Block feature on the site. Too many toxic and bad people having unbridled unmoderated speech online while regular folks are gagged and censored so I usually like to start a forum with a few parameters set.
I have found the Mute feature but I haven’t found the Block feature. Any help/explanation on that would be welcome.

Block isn’t available initially.

I think you need to have earned certain badges or participated a certain amount.

@ISD : can you shed light on what the criteria is to be able to block.

However OP, there is a lot of useful information and helpful people here. The type of replies tend to echo the type of posts being responded to. Toxicity breeds toxicity if you get the drift.

This forum software is free and open source, called Discourse. They do have a user guide, but it is not comprehensive.

The functionality does exist, but Discourse has a “spam prevention feature” where the more you participate the more things become unlocked.

Makes sense to me. Thanks!

When you view a profile of a user, you have two options:

Will confirm, but I don’t believe there is any criteria to being able to use these.
