Now, I have to first say that I love Crunchyroll.
The users on the forums are usually intelligent, mature, funny, and nice.

However, I've also come across some not so friendly users who seem to do nothing but live next to their computer and troll on these forums 24/7. Would it be too hard to add a simple block button?

Yes, I realize that I can simply ignore the posts and move on, but it gets pretty annoying when I keep seeing the same user comment again and again and again and again. I think a little block button could be useful, rather than reporting and hoping you never cross paths with trolls again. I think this could help a lot more other people on both the forums and anime episodes as well.

Do you mean a block from seeing their posts on the forums or a general block for PMs that are sent to someone?

Based on the references to the forums, I would say that.

I would like the ability to filter certain users from my view, so that wherever they post a comment, I see only an empty box.

Ok, sorry, it's a bit overwhelming and confusing sometimes, which is the proper channel.

For what it is worth, I have added this feature to the Chrome extension that I am working on. It allows you to Block a person via a link on user profiles or using the options page. Once blocked any post by that user will be removed from any thread you view. If that is something that you would be interested in there is a link on my profile.

By the way, I have come across a slight problem recently.. The extension seems to have a full screen hotkey and it keeps interrupting my work or my typing. Whenever I start to type, for example - in the comments section under an episode, the video will go full screen and it will not exit by simply pressing ESC. It seems like it redirects to a direct link of the video because the comments and etc. disappear. It took me a while, embarassingly, to figure out that F11 toggle was the way to get out.

However, it's gotten a bit bothersome because I can't type without getting interrupted by the extension anymore. Is there a way to disable this function or to somehow turn off the extension by a click of the button? I haven't found a way to do this in Chrome, asides from the method of just deleting the extension as a whole. I know Firefox extensions have the capability of turning off/on with one click, but it's gotten a bit complicating here in Chrome.

and for further feedback - this blocking thing is great. Millions of kudos to you.

I actually hadn't thought of that. Give me like 5 minutes and I will update with a way to turn of the hotkey.

Took me a bit longer than 5 minutes but I have just pushed out an update. Now the hotkey is disabled by default and you can enable it on the options page. Wait a couple of minutes and then force update your extensions and it should be all set.

That's completely fine! It works like a charm. No interruptions or anything - just a nice, clean, and awesome extension.

Many thanks again!
