Simple question: Do you block people here on GAG? Like, any at all?
I have a strong no blocking policy, I don't block anyone, BUT I'm getting sick of horrible people randomly saying mean things to me, haters constantly hating on me, creeps creeping on me, etc... Which makes me consider starting to block people. So I wanna know if you people block others or nah. If the majority of you do, I probably will start as well.

Do I block people? No, but I would if the need arised.
I haven't made enemies on here (except for possibly one because I kind of bashed him on his question and called him out for his EXTREME creepiness. I don't know how he took it though xD). I blocked one person awhile back, but they have since deactivated. That was back when I was an xper 3 I believe. So yeah, I don't have anyone blocked, but that is because I've never gotten angry or annoyed with someone enough to block them 😅
Should you block people? I would say yes. The reason is this: why don't you block people? Is there a strong reason for it?
Personally, I can't imagine a reason not blocking a person who is harassing and stuff just because of reason like perhaps pride or a "idk why it just has always been that way."
You don't need to go crazy and hit the block button everywhere you go, but there is no reason to let asshats keep being an ass to you. You deserve better than that. No one is going to judge you for blocking a guy who keeps being a total dick (or... on the flipside... a dude who keeps sending dicks expecting something).
Being tolerant is only good to an extent. Given how popular you are and how straightforward you can be, you are bound to have haters.
I SAY THE FIRST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU GAVE ME ON HERE:
Block them, their problem is not your own.4

yes i do, but i won't block unless people are LITERALLY talking to me just to stir up a shit storm and being an absolute pest.
-following me around on questions throwing shit on every opinion [even ones about food or whatever]
- arguing with NO logic whatsoever and wasting my damn time.
- people throwing personal attacks.
- people using my pictures on questions
- stalkers, asking my for my social media
- sexually suggestive comments.
in all honesty id wonder why youd give yourself this 'policy'. as someone well known on the site, ur gonna get hate, and it's not really gonna get much better if u keep taking shit from people. I've got almost 40 blocked now and my activity on the site feels much more 'relaxed'. the feature is there for you, USE IT.3
