Blocking player comms?
The advice Niantic gives when reporting player for questionable comms messages (TOS brechs/cheating) is to block them in comms - how does this makes sense?
If player continues to spam, swear, threaten etc in comms - how does blocking them allow for reports to be made?
How does blocking them stop the behaviour, or prevent their trolling with misinformation or bullying?
Blocking them does not prevent TOS breaches it only hides it & restricts the community from being able to see & minimise damage that player inflicts on others.
There has to be a better way other than hiding from it or pretending it does not happen.
With Niantics upcoming Messaging integration this will increase (if players use it) & active moderation (by real people who can actually action it) of behaviour of comms will be needed
