Interesting, the ClubHouse App has a discrete "blocked" feature that shows up when you click on the profile.

It's also based on people you follow and who follow you so its reactive to your local circles and the individual doesn't carry the badge to non-connected circles ruining them on the app eternally.

Well thought.

Not that anyone here needs to hear this but I have to start posting regardless of it’s redundant nature.

We are more likely to tolerate a poor, undesirable situation then we are take up the rigors of educating ourselves, working or applying ourselves to a cause of an unknown outcome.
