Block’n Out The Haters
First, a quick note about community: you folks are all amazing. Every last one of you. Give yourself a kiss on the cheek, you’re the easiest community to manage ever.
That said, the rest of the internet can, at times, be haters. Luckily we invented a button for that—it’s called the block button and Reading now has one. A fellow Reading user giving you the business? Visit their profile where you’ll find this symbol next to the follow button: ⊘. Click it and that user’s posts and comments will be hidden from view as you traverse the site and you’ll no longer receive notifications when they follow or @mention you in comments.
If you find yourself blocking a user, consider taking the time to report them via email so I can keep an eye on that user and the situation; you can find the “mail” button underneath the giant peace sign on every page. Then take a minute to celebrate for block’n out the haters.
