Valve announced a new Block user feature on steam yesterday after I posted my request for such a feature on their forums. I wanted to be able to block a troll from completely downloading a mod since I knew it would act as a deterant to those wanting to troll. Instead Steams idea is to stop a user from commenting.
Which is not going to help, we do not have problems with a small group of users causing all the problems, if we did that would work. We have problems with the general attitude of most Skyrim players towards people that give them free stuff.
Their are thousands of ignorant assholes out there perfectly happy to vent at a modder each and every day. Blocking them 1 at a time for single comments is like trying to stop a wave by holding your hand out and saying "Stop I Giskard Command It".
What is needed is block that stops them downloading because these people want the mods and if they risk losing them by trolling, they will not be so quick to vent at the player and most of the comments that would need to be blocked would never happen in the first place.
So Steams idea assumes its a few trolls causing all the trouble, its actually the TES communities need to vent at moddings and there are 100,000s of TES fans out there and only a very tiny proportion of them bother being nice.
