Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Anti-harassment/Add variables in AbuseFilter to detect/block thanks/Proposal/en

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
  • Problem: There is no way in AbuseFilter to detect uses of the "thanks" feature. This feature can be abused in order to harass editors. It is possible to mute a spectific account, but when the harasser uses a lot of accounts, the editor targeted by harasser has no other choice than disabling the whole thanks feature.
  • Proposed solution: Create thanks feature related variables, which could be "thanks sender username" and "thanks recipient username" for example.
  • Who would benefit: AbuseFilter editors, harassed editors
