    In servers with a member count over a certain amount, when you delete a message there is a "Report to Discord T&S team", which will delete the message, and report it at the same time, which is the preferred way of reporting something that should be deleted from the chat.

    If you don't want to see a specific player's messages, you can block them. Not sure if that helps in group DMs with your friends, though.

    I agree this would be very useful. You don't want to have to block someone because they posted one message you don't want to see; a "Hide message" function, as appears on Facebook, would solve this issue.

    Exactly, it would help us a lot. We don't want to block a person just for sending one message.

    While this is true, I would still like to be able to hide messages for other reasons, such as server rules violations that do not break Discord rules. The moderators and admins should be able to hide messages and discuss actions against the account privately.

    This could come in very handy, as blocking people can lead to a lot of trouble.

    Agreed. Slack has had this functionality for a while. Something like a disclosure triangle and/or the /collapse command

    Agreed. Pictures, especially animated gifs can be very distracting for some people.  Being able to collapse them would be wonderful.

    This. Tenfold. I'd love to have a way to hide certain messages/images/embeds and the likes without blocking someone entirely.

    I request this too... there was some posts/images I rather not leave on the screen and really would rather have the option to hide certain messages from my view.

    it should probably work like NSFW posts on Reddit. The poster can choose to hide it and an admin can also choose to tag it as NSFW, and then users can choose to see it or not

    This would also be useful for reporting stuff, as it won't be deleted and you can still report it.

    I need this so much. Sometimes it's for no reason other than "I've read this message/seen this image, I don't like it/find it disturbing, but I don't want to disrupt or raise concern because it can be solved by just hiding the message."

    EXTREMELY APPRECIATED if Discord could add this function.

    I was just looking for such an option too.

    Something like toggling visible-or-not for the image/video's "preview" with visible set as default.

    And since your SQL DBs probably need to be filled up some more, it would be great if we could, on a per-user basis, check/uncheck a flag meaning :

    "I don't want your images to be shown UNLESS I actively click on `show this image` because frankly, I don't care about dancing penises and that's half of what you post..."

    Bonus points if we actually could give a custom reason and they could see it XD

    I want this so badly!!! I am in a server right now where one person posts the most disgusting pictures and gifs. I have to practically mute and avoid the entire server until it’s gotten enough activity to send the offending pic/gif up and out of sight. 

    Part of the problem is this stuff or most of it isn’t against discord rules and the server has no rules so there’s nothing I can really do. I can’t report it. It’s just stuff I don’t want to see. About the only thing I could since I don’t want to block the person doing it, is to leave the server. I don’t want to do that either. 

    Please give us an option to hide or blur out posts we don’t want to see. 

    Edit: This would be especially useful in servers where the one posting the offending content can’t delete it either due to not having that permission.
