Has anybody been blocked on here for no reason?

I don't know if it's just me or what, but in the past 3 days, I've been blocked by 6 random GAGers for no reason; people I have had zero contact with or have at least done nothing to wrong. What the hell?

Has this happened to you?

  • Yeah. As you can see I'm in '18-24' age bracket. Well a female in the 'over 45' age bracket randomly said 'hello there ;)' to me in the messages and actually included a winky face. Ok, that's not too weird but before I could even decide to reply or not she sent another message saying 'how are you? are you there?' Within seconds another message came through, this third message read '?' as I still had not replied to her. I decided it was best not to reply at this point as it was obvious she was weird, deluded and probably very desperate. She then sent a fourth message saying 'you're an ass for ignoring me' before she blocked me…. Some people are nuts!

What Guys Said 30

  • Yep it's happened. Some people are just immature.

    One guy blocked me because I didn't answer his question about illegal activities where I work.

    Some others blocked me because I answered their questions truthfully. I didn't say what they wanted to hear.

    Don't worry about it. People like that aren't worth your time anyway.

  • Lol I wouldn't say for no reason, but I get blocked often when I haven't even had a bad convo with the person.

    Most recently I tried to up vote an opinion posted by wolf girl when I discovered she had blocked me :/

    • She seems like a smart girl in general, so it always baffled me why she has those terribly ignorant views when it comes race. It's hard for me to take her serious in general, if that's how she thinks.

    • That "wolfen" chick? She annoys the crap out of me.

  • Yes in the initial stages of being at GAG I was blocked at least by 2 girls who were 18-24 & under 18 group. Reason I didn't know, I'd never interacted with them. It may happen by error or something I opined on made them jump to conclusions or maybe they didn't like my name or my profile pic - could be anything.

    I know at least one of them unblocked me at a later stage maybe when she realized what I was saying wasn't meant to be creepy :-)

    • I see. That might be the case lol But I do know that a lot of my opinions are not very popular lol

  • Once in a while people will take a shot at me and then block me so I can't post a response. I always flag their answers!

  • Hell I've even been blocked by a Mod for some reason and I have no idea who he is nor if I've ever talked to him, but I sure don't think so.

    It basically just means you said something they so vastly disagreed with that they figured they don't want to walk to you. If they're so prissy, leave it to them. Blocking is petty unless you're continuously harassed with insults and name-calling, anyways - and that hasn't happened to me before, possibly because it's a violation of the rules.

    • You don't even know what my reasons are for blocking someone...

    • My main reason for blocking someone is either inappropriate messages (you know, asking for nudies, or wanting to show me dick pics, etc.) or plain harrassment. I think it should be obvious that I'd block these people.
      Other than that, I'm not a child. I won't block somone because I despise their opinions. If that was the case, I'd have to block about 75 people a day and eventually there would be about 0.1% of GAG left that I haven't blocked.
      The only times I block someone as "conflict resolution", is when they are continually hostile, at which I first will stop responding, but if they continue to respond that way, I will just "turn them off". I think that's just reasonable.
      But I agree with you that there are people who are ridiculously quick to block someone.

    • I think I just phrase things in a too direct and harsh way and people can find that offensive. Hmm.

  • I once got blocked for questioning someone's ability with the English language. I asked if English was not his first language.
    He claimed to be a writer, and it turned out that he lived in USA and English was his first language.

    One Guy because I said: "I find your opinion offensive. I don't want to hear any more of it."

  • Probably!

    I do have a tendency to be an asshole every eon or so... or every third of a second or so. Because of that I wouldn't be surprised if at least SOMEONE has blocked me. Although I never would try to be rude to someone directly.

  • Yep, it has happened to me numerous times over the years. My best guess is that I may have offended them when they were anonymous. I don't think you should dwell on it though, it happens to many people here. Don't let it get to you:)

  • Wow, that's strange. Same thing happened to me. People I've never talked to just spontaneously blocked me, and I found this out by trying upvote one of their comments or replying to one. Guess I'm that annoying and they don't want to see amymore of my b. s., so they just blocked me. That's my only guess, considering I've never had one conversation with these people.

  • I don't think anyone blocks any one for no reason at all, it's just that often we never get to find out what their reasons were, or we simply don't understand them.

    But yes, a couple of people have blocked me and I don't really know what for. But that's okay, my reasons for blocking someone might be hard to understand to some as well.

    I'm expecting to be blocked by more people with time.

    • You may be right. I agree with a lot of her views, but I do disagree with her big time on that one.

    • I just think blocking is a silly and counterproductive way of "conflict "resolution"".

    • That's true! Maybe you do have a good reason. As I said in my post above, I personally never really had a quarrel that would have warranted it. But I've seen people who would have blocked me for my previous comment here because they would have felt insulted. It happens.

  • Yeah, the really weird chick who asked the question about black people looking gorillas blocked me for some reason. I've literally never messaged her, answered one of her questions, or even commented on her opinions. I'm not bothered though, based on some of the questions and opinions that she's written, she isn't the kind of person I'd associate with anyways.
