What makes you block people?

Is it something they have specifically done, such as hassle you, or because you don't like the cut of their jib?

On GAG, as opposed to IRL

  • I block people who I find to be particularly stupid.
    Those who I cannot realistically imagine saying anything of value, be it now or in the future.

  • If discussions iwth them go on forever, in largepart because they counter my replies by regurgitating what they believe to be true. Giving reasons that either are not in the least related or that have already been negated with my own approach, back and forth.
    I used to stand strongly against blocking because I'd think that meant that I was giving up or something but at this point, I can't stand how many people will stick to their guns despite their view having been completely disproven.
    So yeah, when that happens, BLOCKED.

  • Blocking people isn't a good thing, yes there is nothing wrong with blocking people but according to me that should be the last option. At least for me it's not a default option, as much as possible I try not to block people and so far in the last 9 months I have blocked only 1 person, so for me that's a last option. However if I am sure that person deserves to be blocked then I will not hesitate to block that person.

    Yes, some people deserve to be blocked. I also have many reasons for which I can block people if I want too.

    1. If they are outright judgmental towards me.

    2. If they talk like as if they are "GOD" and they know everything.

    3. They talk like as if they are giving me orders, and are of the advisory type. I mean I don't need advice if I have not asked for it but some people will just be advisory and will talk as they are giving orders and this is right, this is wrong and so on. I absolutely dislike such people and I will not hesitate to block them.

    4. If the other person is not making any attempt to even try to understand me then I wouldn't want to keep contact with such a person.

    5. If they are very immature.

    These were some of the reasons. I have many more but these are the important ones.

  • I have went an entire year without blocking a single person until recently. I have even made a list of people who blocked me and thought I'd never add anyone whom I would block.
    I used to think that blocking was for those who couldn't face reality and realize that not everyone would agree with their opinion - as is the case with most of the people on my list of people that have blocked me. But I recently realized had to do the blocking myself but not because I disagreed with them or they disagreed with me, but because they were a stalking troll that went to month old opinions and replied to them + they always messaged me. Damn shit.

  • I don't really block people... thats a sign of weakness. i mean, i can understand if i was getting harassed or attacked unnecessarily and crap, then i'd just report them. but if its just someone with different opinions... im sticking to my guns. and that is usually what gets me blocked... i make one hell of an argument... you can ask @justbanANNAz i don't let up...
    crappy girl doesn't let up either... lol... she's amazing to argue with.

  • I don't block people ever - I let them continue to an extent that I can report them to the admin where they get taken seriously & GAG sends out warnings to them if not take their profile down 😜

  • I block people who disagrees with me but cannot verbalize why and only resort to insults.
    I will sometimes block people for whom I commented on their opinion and instead of having a civil argumentation, reacted like if a hobo just licked their face. I block them only so I never make the mistake of talking to them again.

  • like if for some reason some dude brags about his stuff in a comment to my opinion, that´s an insta block for me. also mostly people that are not able to discuss things on a topical level but choose to attack me personally instead, cause they´re out of arguments.

  • I actually don't tend to block people, or if I do it's only temporary. There are a lot of people here who block you just because they disagree with your views, though.

  • I don't block people. Blocking people is for fascist cowards who want to shut down others' speech, especially on GaG. GaG is set up to best enable fascist abusers to talk shit about someone in a public area, then block them, leaving the slander up and the slandered no way to defend himself.

    Personally, I think people should be ignored manually -- that is, when you see something you don't like, just get the fuck on with your life.

  • mostly trolls and assholes... I have only 3 people blocked because I try to avoid doing that but sometimes they are begging for it... it would have been more but many of them deactivated, so they got removed from the list

  • I only block people when they block me, in case they want to sneakily comment on something of mine and then block me again.

    From what I can tell of the people who blocked me, usually they did it because I had an opposing opinion, I questioned their stance on a certain topic, or I pointed out their fallacy.

  • The only people I have blocked since I have been back are two stiffs that 1) have no since of humor, and 2) blocked me for a simple joke and then continued to spam my answer in comments after they had blocked me for some reason. I just didn't want to continue receiving notifications from half wits.

  • Haven't found anyone annoying enough that deserves the block hammer.
    Though, I would probably only block someone if they were to bother me on a constant basis.

    When someone is a real asshole and it is my best interest to block the dickwad. They could be stalkers.

  • I notice most people (girls especially) do it on this site when you embarrass them or demolish them in an argument and they have no valid response; so they say something like "fuck you" or "bye" to get the last word and then block you. Pathetic if you ask me.

  • I've only blocked one person and that was due to his behavior turning into harassment pretty much. I told him several times I was uncomfortable with what he was saying or asking as well before I felt it was necessary to block him.
