I have noticed that some people seem to be personally offended when they are blocked and may even attempt to create a fake account to reach out or still insert themselves in a space where their presence is not desired. Is it pride, ego, or what? Can someone explain why it is that some people absolutely cannot fathom that someone genuinely has no interest in their personality or what they have to say? We're all a bunch of bypassing strangers so why is it such a major deal to someone if some momentary individual wants to be even more momentary than they already would have been?
If you'd like to block me, go right ahead. I will respect your wishes. This is mainly because the odds are there's no legitimate, solid, irreplacable bond between us that I highly value. Yet also because I humbly acknowledge that I have collected plenty of wisdom and helpful insight to share so if you wish to cut yourself off from it then that's your business. I've had several experiences where I've blocked someone yet they have still desperately tried to catch my attention or insert themselves in my online environment despite the fact that I blatnatly told them they're not welcomed. Why do you think this is?
I suppose they say hindsight is 20/20 vision - The longer I spend on the site I realise that nothing can be gained by getting personal in a negative way. As you say in life I think everybody eventually meets one or quite a few people they do not get on with. In this situation you can butt heads or take the higher ground and avoid each other. I personally feel that is beneficial to both parties. I am most definitely trying to inhabit a middle ground at the moment so hopefully blocking is not a major issue for me on the site but that said I will do my best not to get involved in a saga if it happens. Fortunately I have not been entangled in a situation like you described but I would try and find the smoothest exit strategy.
or if I've spent time writing a response not knowing im blocked then i can't send it after I've finished. thats irritating. there should be some identifying a post you can't answer before you try to send.
but in general no. if a person doesn't want to hear from me, thats their right. though i do think its childish. unless you're being harassed. to block people for having different opinions on a talk site is just silly. in my opinion.
I think the problem is that when you block someone, you take power away from them. It is like they don't even have a voice anymore, when typically what they want is power over you. This is what I think it drives them crazy.
in most cases it is because the block functionality here is weak so people can still try to respond to your comments and fail and get mad
I seem to remember you getting angry at a male user who took exception with one of your bigoted posts about white men blocked you and you went mad and started posting a massive rant. You'd make a fantastic Politician.
Because they'd rather not let the other user have the statisfaction of having the last say. On the Internet, there is a big mentality of always wanting to win an argument. That is the reason why most might make alternative accounts if you block them.
I don't really care about people blocking me and I suppose there's about 100 people who have me blocked lol. The only thing that's kinda ridiculous to me is when people on here block me for no apparent reason like there's about 50 people of those 100 that I have never even talked to. 😅👌
