Delete, report, block

Hello folks, a third update this week. By popular demand, we'll be rolling out a feature over the next few days that will allow you to perform a delete, report, and block action on comments on your posts.

This is similar to the remove, report, and ban action we launched a while ago for community moderators:
https://plus.google.com/+LeoDeegan/posts/3NGFAhREovQ
https://plus.google.com/+LeoDeegan/posts/WjcFN66eRgg

The launch today, however, is to provide you an equivalent action on your own posts.

To invoke this feature, select "Delete, report, and block" from a comment. You can optionally select "Also delete recent comments by this user" if you want to additionally remove recent comments from the user on your posts.

Incidentally, this image is for illustrative purposes. I am not actually planning on blocking +Greg Wolfe, who is a valuable member of our team (and also the lead for this feature).

Delete, Report, and Block

We are pleased to announce a new Delete, Report, and Block feature that allows G+ users to remove unwelcome comments from their posts. This feature builds upon the Delete, Report, and Block function that was recently launched for community moderators, so that every G+ user can control the conversations in the comment section of their posts.
