Hello. The auto silence feature of chat is a useful one. I see this feature as a way to force users to write messages that contain complete sentences and thoughts
However, the way silencing happens now is not too effective at achieving this goal. As I understand it, the system bot sends a warning as a PM telling them they’ve been temporarily blocked. If the user doesn’t think the above behavior is a problem (which is probably a true statement, otherwise, the user wouldn’t type like that), they can’t understand what the reason for the block was.
In addition, this all feels a bit awkward – the punishment for actions in chat comes as a PM.
My question – is the current silencing behavior a result of deliberate choice or is it something you may agree can be improved?
For example, instead of sending a silence PM, why can’t we make send button inactive in chat for the duration of the silence? Telegram does that:
You don’t see the send button unless certain time has passed since your last message.
