Forum members : ABCDE.
Once, B bothers A with an offending message.
With the auto-moderation rule (described here : viewtopic.php?f=72&t=1216515 ),
A deletes the offending message from B.
But B does it again, and posts 2 agressive comments on the topic of A.
Then, A can block B.
- A cannot see any topic or comment written by B.
- B cannot see any topic or comment written by A.
Now, C opens a topic. C and A, and C and B, are still visible to each other.
So : CDE can see what A and B posted on C's topic. But B can not see what A wrote, and A can not either see what C wrote.
Because the conflicts may come from anything, any matter, even very stupid details, that... are not details for some sensitive people who might easily feel offended and feel a need to protect themselves, even when they are the only people to feel this way.Why don't you create different forums on your board and then user groups which only have (write) access to specific forums? That way a user can be member of the groups "pro-feminism", "anti-global warming" and "pro-christianity" and at the same time he can't post anything to the forums titled "child's corner", "programming" and "birth control"?
It's is true that I took only ideological examples.
But conflicts might come from an attitude, a style of speech, the level of violence or profanity, that is very differently felt according to A, B, C, D and E.
And we think that everyone is allowed to have a special sensitivity.
