Didn't you finally want to leave the good people here alone?
Tom we really need a Block function in the new forums.
But how would a block function work?
Does the owner of a thread have the ability to block someone from posting in their thread?
Does it just hide the other users' posts from you? Or have a button to see it when you want to know what they said?
Does it stop them from being able to reply to you / quote you / tag you?
Being able to choose what information to see or ignore is yet another reason why arguments start, I don't think it would make things better.
However, for hateful posts you can surely report them.
Whatever I, and other developers here, may have said about Construct. It doesn't mean that Scirra's team isn't working hard, just maybe not towards the outcome that we would like (again, I'd like for Scirra to take a stance on that moving forward with C3) and the mods are also great at responding quickly.
Construct has a great community, these arguments are growing pains as Construct morphs into its next evolution. Right now, to me, it's looking like it's going more the way of "Scratch" with hobbyists and web and educators having the best time with it, and some mobile/"light console" as optional bonus features.
If Scirra advertised the tool that way, I would never have a problem with it, although I would see partially missed potential for console export from Construct's awesome editor, that's just personal opinion.
At the same time, threads like these serve as a "canary in the coal mine" for other developers, so they know when it's time to move on from their prototypes and free games to other engines if they seek commercial and console content (or to let them know if they even have to change engines at all, which currently the consensus from showcased and other "serious" devs seems to be: yes)
