Blocking Hidden Forum Trolls

Just a tip. Came across a baby troll in the forums today and decided to cut to the chase and block him or her (whom are we kidding, it’s always a male cretin) now rather than later. But clicking on them to begin the process returned only:

“This user’s public profile is hidden,”

This is a known issue with the Discourse platform. It really should be classified as a bug but is not. The workaround is going to one’s own profile and adding the new troll’s name to your block list there. FYI.
