Just like it says. There is this person whom I have generally upvoted due to their mostly sound opinion. After stating my logical objections to their stance in this particular MyTake, they blocked me. by the way I have given this particular person at least 50-60 points by now. There was really nothing wrong with my counter-argument except it showed that their basic premise was flawed (and untrue). Should I be able to retract all points given to them? I feel betrayed, as I would never block anyone due to an opinion; I would try to talk it out in all cases, or just ignore the question and move on to another on GaG.
I think it's kinda funny when someone blocks you, it means something you said struck a nerve and they can't handle it. It's a sign of their weakness is all, no big deal. Unless of course your calling names and shit or stalking etc..
No it's not worth it. If you given that person points they must've deserved them and the both of you not ending on good terms isn't reason enough to take them away from that person.
Trust me I despise someone on here but she has had some occasional valid opinions while other times she's a racist, hypocritical, bigot that looks down upon others. For the things I've agreed with her on and the times when she actually cared about the subject I gave her her props so I'm not going to take that away from her just like you shouldn't take that away from whoever that guy is... It isn't even worth it.
no. this is what's called a get over it moment. sure you're frustrated by the user's inability to grasp whatever argument you put to them, but there's no need to go down to their level and start looking to magically take away points. eventually that bad idea is going to affect everyone if it ever became policy, just get over it and move on.
I don't know. Just because they blocked you, doesn't mean that their previous opinions are any different - unless they changed their minds. But how can you know if they will do that? I think blocking someone for stating an opinion is immature, but so is retaliating in a similar fashion.
