Hi Everyone

I've just come across a new member whose language I find quite offensive. Is it possible to block this member so I do not have view their content again even on my dashboard?

Thanks in advance

Hazel

I have also run across a few members who's comments I find to be offensive and disrespectful to other members or just rude in general. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but not at the expense of respect within the community. I report them as SPAM and I am certain to unfollow them.
As the seasoned members here have said, this does not happen often but with an influx of new members, sometimes these things happen :(

Thank you, Amy - yes reporting them as spam seems to be the best option.

Thanks for bringing this up Hazel, we need to ensure everyone knows the outcome of using such language here. I see from the train below that you have now reported the member. This situation has to be resolved as you have done because it is not acceptable at all. I have to say that this is the first time in my 6 years here that I have seen this or the need to do it. Sorry you had to be the one it happened to. Try to have a great weekend.

Maybe you can unfollow them. I haven't run into anything like this before. This should be a place for professionalism, and no garbage like you are speaking about.

Thanks - I wasn't actually following them but this came up on my dashboard so was there for all on the platform to see.

I now reported them.

You can always report their comments to you or comments on the platform as Spam.

If it's really a major concern you can report it to Kyle or Carson.

Wealthy affiliate is an anti Spam platform and there's no solicitation of other businesses on the platform so if you encounter that, please report it.

Hi Hazel. All you can do is unfollow them (if you are following), then you will at least not get any more email notifications of their posts. We are sure there is no way of blocking them from your dashboard. The only other thing you can do is report the post as spam. If the post really is offensive then others will likely do the same and the new member will either be warned or banned.

Yes thanks Colette and Philip.

I have now reported them and hopefully others will do the same.

I don't know about blocking another member entirely - I've only blocked a member in private messages since I was being flooded with completely irrelevant messages that were wasting my time. I am not sure if this completely blocks you seeing their content though and I have seen this person in chat since....

But as for blocking another member through their profile I have not found a way. If you have had a conversation with the person in a private message there is little down arrow at the top of your conversation next to "mark unread" and there you can report and/ or block a member.

Of course if you have not had a conversation in private messages with this person it would not work.

Thank you Lynne, I will probably report them anyway as the language is inappropriate in my opinion.

Thanks for the reply,
Hazel

It is very important for all members to be respectful and speak nicely to others here. So inappropriate language does not have a place here.
