It seems to be similar to Twitter's system, where if you're not somehow lucky enough to have blocked someone before they ever got a chance to reply, whatever they said gets a permanent irrevocable spot in your comments section.
This is terrible and needs to stop.
I would love the ability to delete comment threads as if they never existed. Because some of them shouldn't have.
Currently, when you hide someone else's comment on your post, it doesn't actually remove it from view. It just hides it behind a clickthrough - other people can still view it and even reply to it.
I personally would prefer that it removes the comment from view altogether. I haven't had a need to use it because people have been chill, but it was reassuring to know that if someone was being obnoxious on my post, I could remove them from it and then block them. It's less reassuring to know that it stays up.
