One of BLURT features is no downvote. This feature eliminates the flag wars and reduces the drama.
But since there is no downvote, there isn't a proper way to stop abuses, identity thefts, plagiarism, etc.
So a blacklist is implemented to have better control of abuses, identity thefts, plagiarism, etc.
If an user is added to the blacklist, then the upvote button will be removed from his posts(prevents other users/curators upvote the posts), and a warning sign will be displayed next to his blurt id:
Hover his blurt ID, a reason will be displayed:
This solution only prevents other users upvote the posts via blurt.world UI.
Currently, I'm only adding identity thefts to the blacklist. There are quite a few since BLURT payout increased.
If you have any better solution to fight the abuses, please let me know.
