Hide my post for my foe

Post by Mannix_ » Tue Oct 01, 2019 2:01 pm

Right now if you add someone to your foe list his post will be "invisible" to me but he can read mine w/o a problem, so I would suggest to change it so my foe can't read my posts as I "can't" read his.

Personally I don't see the point. What does it matter who reads your posts and in any event your "foe" would only need to click on display post to read it.

Moreover, that would mean you can make decisions for other people. I don't think that is right.
Friends and Foes are personal, and mostly for some 'ease-of-use' for your own experience.

Plus if the user is not logged in he or she will be able to see the posts anyway unless it's a private forum.
On the other hand if they have more than one account they will still be able to see the posts.

That's a wrong conclusion: you don't want to read his posts. Preference and penalty are two drastically different things - while penalties on both sides of the fight might be appropriate you cannot make your preferences override those of others.

Hiding foe posts is more like "let them write as if I would read it - they'll never notice anyway".

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.

Me not wanting to read a foe's posts is a voluntary choice I'm making, while blocking them from reading mine is a punitive measure. Just because I, (in a hypothetical situation) do not like a fellow poster does not mean that fellow poster should be punished or have a choice made for them, by being prevented from reading my posts on a public forum. In addition, as someone has already said here previously, a foe can view a post by simply logging out if the forum is public. Overall, I don't think this is a good idea nor would it be very useful.
