Excellent news, as the function has so far proved ineffective for people facing harassment or other forms of abuse since any “blocked” user could still interact with their messages…

Reddit is also altering how the material of a blocked user displays to the person who blocked them. Reddit also wants to implement a restriction to prevent users from repeatedly banning and unblocking another user in a short period of time. Furthermore, Reddit has implemented several limits to prevent users from abusing the service by restricting it on a large scale.

Users who have blocked someone else, on the other hand, will still be able to see their postings, albeit the content will be compressed by default. Reddit has claimed that it will keep prohibited users’ postings available so that users may report possible abuse through the website’s reporting options.
