The functionality we're discussing in this thread is really only used
to control "off-topic", "trolling", or other abusive behavior. We are
glad to get feedback - that's not really what this thread is about.
The line between "feedback" and "abuse" is entirely subjective and not
the same for everyone. What a boring and simple world that would be.

This is definitely off-topic, and the tone is rather aggressive for
this to be useful feedback. That being said, I'd be happy to discuss
your bug/feedback experience further off-thread.
