We need a block user feature. Though unfollow is okay for some purposes, it does not serve all purposes. For example, there was a situation where there was a heated discussion in the forum, and what I was saying was not appreciated, and I could not block the people who wished to turn the discussion into an argument.

The forums on HubPages are built on very antiquated software, which doesn't have many of the functions that are basic on other forums. So to add features like that would require programming which costs money.

..which has been an interesting discovery for me. They have interesting content and perspectives. But they seldom come upfront. What are your thoughts. No, not yours. I'm asking the interesting people!

I read both forum entries and answers/questions entries but the two features seem to overlap. Many of the questions asked in "answers" are technical questions asked by hubbers about HP. Some elicit long threads of answers just like in the forums. Since the "questions/answers"...
