    Cockblocking

    Is this feature now feasible after the upgrade?

    Think how much better the CT thread would be if you cockblocked people with king in their username.

    I support GFs proposal and think it would be an excellent idea.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    I wished for it as a moderator and I wish for it even more as a member of the proletariat.

    Cockblocking wouldn't occur for crap arguments, it would occur for rule breaking. You're far more likely to get cockblocked from threads for retaliating and calling someone an idiot.

    Cockblocking should only be used on CW in tour threads when the conversation degrades into nationalistic showboating. It should be used as a temporary warning by mods and needs to be a tool they can apply with some flexibility. If cockblocking is something that has to go to committee then it has no purpose behind it, it would be too slow and too methodical to really have any effect.

    Why are we still calling it cockblocking? Call it threadblocking, FFS...
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Because you don't block the thread from receiving posts, just block the cock from posting in it.....
