Does any one know how to contact moderators or such because I continue to run into people who will attack me giving me a long list of remarks directed at me and then block me before I have a chance to either correct them, defend myself or just generally respond back. Personally I think thats abusing the system in place, its one thing to simply block them and walk away but another to antagonize then block them. Its incredibly puerile. Does any one know how to deal with this?
One of those things you just gotta let go lol. I posted a comment on a question a girl didn't like the answer to. She "told me off" in her view of it at least and immediately blocked me so I could not respond. For a moment, I was like "wtf" but that quickly changed to "seriously? Lol whatever I guess". It didn't matter, just as yours doesn't matter.
Really if you break down why it bothers you, it boils down to how it makes you look. You feel like in the public eye it may look like you backed down to their wit or they proved you wrong. When in reality, no one really gives a shit. It's just another comment and a scared little person couldn't handle your response to whatever they had to say. There's no value in that conversation anyways if they're the type of person to do that. You were spared time and energy invested in that person.
There's no rhyme or reason to it, really. I hate when people block just to get in the last word - it happens to me too. If they want to be babies about it, it's not my problem. I don't think that's the way blocking is intended to be used here, but there's nothing preventing that from happening. But if they want to prevent you from contacting them or answering their posts, they are allowed to do so.
I've been blocked on here by some people simply because I'm a site moderator and they hate us, lol. It's stupid but there's nothing I can do about it.
You can contact the admins directly via the Contact Us link, and bring your concerns abput this to their attention.
this is so relatable, i've had a girl reply rudely on an opinion then block me and post a question on whether people agreed my opinion was racist. i couldn't even defend myself!! good thing no one else saw it her way haha i just move on with my life. or whenever they post a question, i like all the opinions that are being mean to them haha #petty
Contact any of us through messages with a link to the question, opinion, or reply that is of concern. We'll try to help as best we can. Otherwise, you just need to accept the fact that you've been blocked and move on. Users block each other all the time for reasons big and small.
That keeps happening to me. I don't post anything offensive, just something that disagrees with them and they block me. It annoys me if your debating with them and they block you so you can't counter. It's a pretty cheap way to win a debate. Also I would like to be informed of who has blocked me so I don't have to find out the hard way.
Hmm, there's really no solution to that. I can see it from both sides. On one hand, if someone posts something really rude or antagonistic towards you, and then block you, that's pretty immature and annoying. But, if you're arguing with someone, and they keep posting when you're no longer interested in the discussion, I can understand blocking someone. Regardless, I'm not sure how you'd go about putting rules on who you can block. You just have to deal with it and move on.
Yes, I do. Just ignore them. They are not doing themselves any favours.
My reasoning is that if they ask a question, you might be the only person in the world to have the right answer. They will never see it because they have blocked you. Rather shot themselves in both feet, I'd say. It's a sign of immaturity and childishness to block without having a darned good reason, like verbal abuse. Even then, it should only be a temporary measure until admin can deal with it properly.
I just got blocked by @SexyStudent have no idea why. Guess some people can't take a joke. Kinda weird we were having an interesting conversation. I also recently found out that @BeeNee blocked me for some reason. It's a shame I wanted to respond to her myTake.
I doubt we'll ever know why people block us. Perhaps they're just weak. To quote @MaskedSanity "By blocking me you are admitting that you cannot handle being scrutinized for your poor actions and bestow victory upon me in our argument."
Well, you can try to contact an admin and discuss this issue but I don't think anything will be done about it, because using the block feature is a member's personal choice and so they can use it in any way they want and whenever they want. I believe that block feature should be used as a last option but for some people that is the only thing they know to do (they might have their reasons for that)
I think having the block button is indeed a good feature, because some people do deserve to get blocked ( I am not indicating anything towards you).
Hence you can only accept what has happened and just continue giving your opinions, comments. Thinking about why you got blocked will really not do anything. Not everyone will like you, so just learn to take that into your stride.
