Block prevents replying to Flow threads
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

For https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Topic:V73q4742vi3wb49x , the blocked user has complained to me via email that they cannot reply to the thread, even given that they created the thread. They can presumably make new threads, but as MediaWiki is considering these topic pages to be distinct from their talk page, they aren't being allowed to edit it.

Similar issue is previously mentioned in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T61928#3347885

Actually, it's different from that.

It is indeed dup of T61928 (as Benoit said in T61928#3347885 -- blocked user cannot reply to the Flow thread), and the error is filed as T232753. Closing as a dup.
