Imgur has rolled out another update on their social photo sharing platform.
You can now report and block spammers who send personal messages to you on Imgur.com.
Someone sent me an Imgur message saying, “is it any sexy womens out there want to chat.” You can now block and report users in messaging!

You also get the ability to opt out of messaging completely. Imgur said:
You may be happy to know you can now block specific users and report spammers on messaging! If messaging irks you in general, you now also have the option to opt out of it all together. Message in peace, my friends.
Imgur originally started as an image hosting service. Developers connected it deeply with Reddit and you now have sections on Imgur.com dedicated to photos shared on individual subreddits on Reddit.com.
Imgur also has a popular image gallery where users can comment. Private messaging feature was launched recently and moderation capabilities have been made available today.
