Although there is the argument "You can't block people in real life!", people still block other users on websites, especially on here.
Well I block for two reasons.
1. They're ignorant.
Not as in they disagree with me, but as in they can't back up the shit they're talking. They're not giving facts, they're being disrespectful and rude. I'm not going to deal with that.
If I get in an argument with an ignorant person on here, I am going to block them if they annoy me enough.
2. They're creepy.
Lots of people 30+ will hit on younger people 18 below. They won't age check before flirting, or they something nasty and perverted. Usually I will comment on them making me uncomfortable or them being creepy. Occasionally I'll just block them if I'm not in the mood.
Reasons not to block others:
1. They disagree with you.
It's stupid. "Oh, Susan disagrees with me, she supports Trump and not Bernie! Blocked."
That's bullshit. Susan didn't do anything wrong, she had an opinion.
2. Their race.
I've noticed Indian people will get blocked simply for being Indian, and there's a stigma that
"all Indians are creepy."
This goes for any race but damn. Really? You racist bastards.
3. Their age.
Just because someone is 20 years older or younger than you, that doesn't mean they're stupid or immature or not understanding.
4. You got the final word.
How mature. You posted your say then you block them so you can't let them prove their side.
People, blocking is something useful, not something to be abused. It doesn't make you "in the right" or anything. It makes you seem like an arse.
Knowing GAG, you shouldn't block people so willy-nilly or else they'll take that away from us too! (Joking....kind of.)
