I suggest you ...

Expand Block User

Block user needs to block everything. I don't want to see said person's reviews or anything they have to add to the site. Certain people think this website is their personal blog.

    please do this. there's a user who is occupying the first 8 pages of results for lists tagged "awards", and most of the lists are his personal seen-its and only contain one film each!!

    The following CSS will block a single user, replacing their name, reviews, lists, etc. with "Blocked User" and their avatar with the generic Letterboxd image (replace "lordcookie" with whomever you wish to block):


    You can use this via GlimmerBlocker or in your browser custom stylesheet. Unfortunately, you will need to duplicate for each additional user because my skillz are not tiptop.

    Please let me be able to fully remove users like Todd Gains, Cogerson and Naughty who just ruin the website for me. Their reviews are dreadful and I find I can't visit the homepage because their awful rubbish is plastered everywhere.

    Is this something in the pipeline? Something with an ETA? A big part of social networking is having the ability to block out people you don't wish to interact with.

    I mean, otherwise we'd all just go outside of interact with real people. And wh the hell wants that?

    Any way to completely block a user? There is one guy who is always on your front page and every thing he writes is just spoiler filled. Any way to hide his activity altogether?

    Private accounts are a must in this day and age Letterboxd is really behind the times in this respect

    Some lists and reviews end up clogging up the activity feed and it would be nice to block just those specific ones instead of filtering out all comments on lists/reviews or all lists/reviews in general.

    Any chance that we will be able to make our profiles private in the future? I think that would help prevent others from compromising another user's content.

    Thanks again.

    Yes they will still see your content if they look for it. But they will no longer be able to follow you or comment on your content. (They would be able to see your content by signing out of the site anyway, so there’s no difference there.)

    Once I've blocked a user, will that user still be able to see my content? Thanks.

    I agree, there is way too much vitriol in certain "top" reviewers reviews. Some "top" reviewers who have large review lists seem to show up on most every film. I blocked them and I still have to see their smug reviews.
