I'm pretty sure I've mostly been blocked only by religious people. Mostly for saying that religion is technically just a mass delusion.
It is! That's exactly what it is! But I'm pretty sure those 6 low level people I've seen who blocked me without me ever talking to them, that's why they blocked me. There is no other explanation, haha.
No idea, by the way. Some people are just immature. They don't like hearing a differing opinion because otherwise they'd have to consider that they might actually be wrong, so they block you instead. That is why we are not making progress as a society in some regards.
I want to say i don't block anyone because I have no problem with other peoples opinions and I even enjoy a bit of debate because it often leads to me rethinking things and learning something new.
The thing is though I have 1 user blocked and this user is a real piece of work in my opinion, serious bigot that I have 0 desire to waste energy on, it took a long time for me to block them but eventually it was what needed to be done.
It has happened to me a bunch. I'll be discussing something then suddenly the mention feature don't work on them anymore. Or pre-update I'll keep getting "questions" that are rants and I can't respond. I find the people just get way too heated over a slight disagreement.
I don't like blocking people. Sometimes I block people when I get angry but I feel bad about it later and unblock them. The only person I don't feel bad blocking is someone who kept harrasing me out of the blue for my ethnicity... Even still I'd rather not block anyone, it's too reactionary I think...
yeah those kinds of people i call the silly blockers.
BUT i will block a person who displays their disagreement in absolutely offensive ways. I'm all for people disagreeing with me. i respect diversity, but if someone doesn't give me that same acknowledgment then they are blocked.
i also block creeps, bitches and just rude people who r rude for no reason in general.
Honestly? I have a REALLY low tolerance for idiocy. And if you are being stupid and just continue to be stupid I'll block you to save myself from having to deal with further idiocy from you in the future.
And yes, I know, GAG is not the place to go and expect intelligence, but I'm here and I'm addicted.
I've gotten harassed for my age a lot. People don't take my opinions seriously a lot of times. There are also people that creep in my opinions (by that I mean they comment on a few of my opinions) and say rude and nonsensical things about me and/or my opinion. There are people messaging me crazy and rude and creepy things. There are people that attack me for no good reason. There are people that I happen to see giving lots of people crap for their opinions and so I block that person to save myself some trouble.
I have lots of people blocked simply because I have little patience with people on this site.
I never Block anyone on here, dear, unless I find it absolutely Necessary to do so. I have had to press a button om my end when a perverted Gager hits my inbox and is rude and crude. I also press a button when someone goes on my turf here after I have answered a very important question, and instead of Answering the Question themselves, they take up my space and do this and I feel it is rude and crude and therefore, I cannot trust them to continue to do it again and again. xx
I'm not sure why people do it. It can seem a big petty if it is just because of a difference in opinion, but if someone is harassing you then blocking would help solve the problem. I have never blocked anyone before. I never felt the need and plus it is easy for the other person to just make multiple accounts.
its not the fact that people get blocked cause they have a diffrent opnion from yours. the biggest reason i block someone is cause they cannot tell me their opnion without having to be rude or call me stuff cause i dont have a similiar opnion to theirs. I've blocked 30+ people on this site and i will go on doing so. everyone are entitled to their own opnion. but if they are going to tell me their opion and bash down on me while they are doing so they are getting blocked.
