Does Github have a “ban” feature?

Few days ago a guy asked me on Github (as a private message) if UglifyJS can “obfuscate” code.  I didn't reply, so today he felt the need to “ask me again”:


?!?  WTF?

I had a strong urge to reply and throw some “polite” words at him, but I refrained.  What good would it do to to me or to him if I enter the game?  He's an idiot, and I don't see the fun about telling idiots that they're idiots; not anymore.

What I would like to see is a “ban” button.  I want to click that button and never again hear about this guy, even if he mentions my name; and he should be banned from commenting to any of my projects (and forks!) or from sending me any private messages.  That would be Good.  Where's that button, Github?

    sadly, downside of ruling the world :-), is that one have to deal with idiots more often.

    but it seems like github already have a “ban” feature, it's hidden behind the gear button next to "message" and "follow" on users page
