Q: New features proposition: Implement "Captcha" and "Block" function

I have a proposition:

Can we have a feature where we can control what user deals we can see and user deals we can block?

I personally would like to be able to block certain users so I dont see their posts.
I only want to see deals that are actually qualified as deals, not copy/pastes from other deal sites.

Also another proposition is to add "Captcha". So when users submit their deals they have to enter verification code every time. This will prevent spamming and will improve quality of deals posted here. Also will prevent any bot activities.

I like it! Maybe we can do at least the block function.

Here's to a better future on DP :-)

Can we also add a "like" function so I can like this post?

BTW Captcha can be configured so it becomes enabled when user creates certain number of posts per day. Limit can be set by admins.

They dont want to block the bots though.

Unless we already have it and I missed it, what about a filter by discount amount/percent?
Something like that could be based on the regular price and the deal price. This way if someone either put a full priced item in or doesn't meet the amount of savings we want we don't have to see those.

Great ideas! How about a top ten users newsfeed?

@belarus94,
User deals Block is little bit difficult function to implement. But "number of posts per day" can implement easily. I am waiting for that day(so that can stop 250-300 deals post per day by user(s)).
