We want to pass along some news regarding Disqus, which many blogs use as their comment moderation system. Disqus writes:
Up until this point, you’ve had to rely solely on moderators to take action in maintaining quality discussions by dealing with harassment or trolling.
Now rather than simply flagging a comment or reporting someone to a moderator, you have the ability to take action on your own.
This is not a feature intended to end all harassment, trolling, and spam across Disqus, but it is an important step forward. Ultimately, this feature empowers you to improve your own experience and provides an alternative to flagging as the only means to removing disruptive content.
This makes Disqus comment threads more like Twitter, in that you can control which users appear or do not appear in comment threads when you are reading the site.
You block another commenter, and they will not appear on your viewing of the site. This will not affect other readers or commenters.
