We know a lot of you like to be engaged in the comments section on Mediaite, so we found it instructive tonight to highlight how you can block trolls/spammers/other users who are harassing you.
You can block a user by either clicking the triangle dropdown menu next to someone’s comment, then clicking Block User. Or you could do this by going to the user’s Disqus page, as per Disqus’ website:
You can manage users you have blocked by going to the Settings tab of your own user account.
People will still be able to see your posts, but you will not be able to see theirs after you block them.
Disqus has also made this handy video explaining the process:
And anyone commenting on the site should read Mediaite’s commenting guidelines here.
