GaGers, how does it feel to be blocked?

I feel bad. I mean no harm. :(
Getting blocked because of your opinion is utterly ridiculous, lol.

Updates:
The facial expression from the girl in my profile pic is my facial expression when I got blocked. LOL

  • Personally, I think this website should get rid of its blocking functionality. If someone's behavior is truly egregious, the moderators and admins can take care of that. If their behavior isn't truly egregious, then "suck it up, buttercup".

    I think it's petty to block someone just because you dislike their opinions. Like, "Oh, you are SO judgmental!" Like yeah, that makes you so much better than lowly ol' me, and you are judgmental too, hypocrite, so get off the high horse.

    Anyway, I don't really care all that much if someone blocks me, unless it was someone I generally liked and that signals the end of whatever we had.

    What bothers me is that I am never informed that I was blocked until I have spent twenty or thirty minutes formulating a response to something. That is EXTREMELY annoying.

  • It's disappointing! I always think that "if they hadn't blocked me, we could discuss our points further and come to a consensus, I'm pretty sure this is just a misunderstanding"

    But they don't unblock you, they don't want to resolve the conflict and resolve the misunderstanding, they just want to say 'oh, I don't want to read your opinions anymore. Anything you would ever add to my conversations in the future is now predicted as something that would hold no value'.

    I think it's silly to block anyone. I have blocked no one, my block list is empty. No matter what happens, I keep myself to my word: even if you disagree with someone, ALL opinions hold SOME value, therefore blocking is against the primary purpose of this website.

  • I mainly would get blocked and never realize it until I would respond to a question (pre-update) and find out I got blocked. Never really cared.

  • oh well :)

    people get hurt feelings easy all the time if they don't get the opinion they what you can see that in a lot of downvotes situations , if someone didn't like your last opinion they probably ill not like the next one either so I wouldn't worry about it there are lots of other people and post on GAG that you are not blocked form

  • Were you blocked by that anonymous chick talking about the guy who committed those shootings in California? She blocked me too. Lol I didn't even post anything rude or offensive so, that was odd. Haha

    I've been blocked by plenty of users over the years, it doesn't even phase me anymore. Some people are just overly sensitive and block everyone who gives an opinion they don't like. Don't let it get to you:)

    • Yea, lmao.

      & I agree. Overly sensitive. That's exactly it, lol.

    • Haha I know. I don't think she had any reason to block you either. All you did was ask what happened. Lol

  • I don't really care. I mean, most of the people who have blocked me are people I haven't even talked to. If they really make that big of an effort to block me without having even talked to me, it goes to show that I'm not really missing out lol.
    So don't worry about it :P

  • It's okay. They don't like my opinions...and they block me...I'm okay with it.
    I don't think I've been blocked, but if I was/am...I'd be fine with it.

  • I am indifferent. But tbh I can't think of many instances where I was extremely rude or even harassing someone...

    Personally I only block people who harass me repeatedly: they are really into name calling and being offensive (call me a dumb bitch, slut, and whatever else they want) more than once, people who seem to find all my opinions and comment rude things on them (once or twice is fine- but after the 5th time I know they won't stop so they get blocked), and people who send me rude/obscene/messages.

    But it's really silly and obnoxious when people block others for simply disagreeing with them.

    • Blocking someone for those reasons..100% understandable.

    • Show All
    • I didn't bother responding to the question by the poster I think you're referring to because I think she just wanted to pick fights lol

    • I think resorting to insults is petty. I try my best to avoid it, albeit I can't say I haven't overreacted before. Even then, generally speaking, insults contain no information to begin with, and all it does is make the other person be on the defensive, therefore even if they had agreed with any of your statement, they won't and will try to reject all of it, because they're now offended. I'm surprised people can be so openly hostile in an environment designed for civil discussion and basically view sharing.

  • I laugh so hard especially when I never talked to that user.
