    Here is the solution to the backlash crisis that Mojang Studios just got itself into.

    Agreed. This feature won't fix the horrendous communication Mojang has shown, or the privacy concerns of chat reporting, but it would fix a significant part of my personal problems with this system and would be a decent step towards tackling the system's other issues. +1

    Now, if only Mojang listened to feedback...

    *loads into a server*
    *message on the server screen appears*
    "Warning: This server allows unlawful users. Be advised that content you see here might not be appropriate for all ages"

    I don't like the idea of flagging people at all, but I would rather this than having my account outright banned.

    Good idea, this is the best of both worlds. If there's anything Mojang/Microsoft REALLY should listen to, this is it.

    I agree with this. Platforms for tracking bad actors have been around for ever MC Bans being one of the largest but even here it is up to the private server admins whether or not to use or enforce third party ban lists. I would argue that Microsoft has every right to globally ban accounts that violate TOS "ON REALMS SERVERS"! or servers OWNED by M$. I argue that Microsoft DOES NOT HAVE A RIGHT to globally ban accounts where private servers are concerned. I have no issue with Microsoft publishing a global ban list that servers can utilize however this should be optional whether or not a server enforces it. Although frankly its a moot point given moders have already created server plugins to strip out chat reporting and modded servers can require specific clients with the functionality removed in order to join the only real issue is when someone gets banned on a realms server
