This new feature of the application can be activated by navigating to the account settings, and then to 'Comment Settings and toggle 'Hide Offensive Comments' switch. It appears to replace the existing 'Hide Inappropriate Comments' switch, which likely used a basic block list. The new update will make the application more secure and friendly for the users and have certain machine learning features built inside the application to block spam and robotic messages that creep inside the profiles of users.
