And when you block the person, it would prompt you to add a reason which would have to be at least 50 characters long, and when you try to post on their post, it would say "You were blocked by the user, reason: "
That way I wouldn't be confused whenever I see I'm blocked by some random people, and I'm not even sure why. Saying any specific names counts as "antagonistic", so I won't do that, but still - it tends to bug me when I have no idea when or what I did wrong.
So, I think there should have to be an obligatory reason specification for blocking - that way you could keep track of your own reasons, and the blocked person would know what they did wrong supposedly. That way, people can even learn from their mistakes, and maybe even change for the better.
What do you think?
- Yes, I absolutely agree, it would be nice to know why I was blocked by others so I could learn about what ticked them off.Vote A
- No, I vehemently disagree, those who are blocked by me do not deserve any clarification on the reasons behind my actions.Vote B
- I either don't agree with those bipolar options, or just don't have an opinion for some reason. I will explain below.Vote C

We want everyone to be able to customize their GAG experience as much as possible.
If they don't want to talk to certain GAGers, they don't have to - and they don't have to explain why.
It's their account and their GAG experience, blocking is completely up to that member and we feel that neither admins nor other members are owed any explanations :-)
If there is bullying or harassment going on, we hope that we'll be given that kind of information (beyond simple blocking) so that we can take care of things for the entire site.2
