There's a Repost option in the (--) button. I would imagine if enough downvotes due to Repost happen, the rant is removed. I think this is how it's already implemented. Only I just don't see reposts with negative score.
devlajf5864yYou mean the report function? Just pressed it...
@g-m-f interesting. So what happens then? It is hidden from the user(who clicked repost option)'s rant feed?
dfox442814yYeah, this is exactly what downvote as repost does. Right now the threshold to become a repost is extremely low, so it should work quickly if people mark it. Once it's marked as a repost, then if you have "hide as repost" enabled then it won't show up. Any rant you downvote is automatically removed from your feed too.
Also, if a rant gets enough repost votes, it stops showing up for everyone in addition to those who have "hide reposts" turned on. But that threshold is higher.
