I'm just curious because every time I get into a little argument on here, just stating my opinion I'm not being rude or nasty or anything, people just block me. Like they want to get the last say in the argument and be like "it's done here" and then block me before I get a chance to respond lol. People be such wusses. If that's your way of "winning a argument" you're a goddamn little b****.
People don't like when their world view is challenged. Being forced out of one's comfort zone is never pleasant.
I only block persistent spammers and block feature abusers - those that block you, then unblock you to post something shitty on one of your questions/takes or PM and reblock you straight after.
Blocking for difference in opinion is for pussies. Why bother going on an opinion sharing website if all you wanna do is surround yourself with a bunch of yes men parroting stuff you agree with anyway?
Because many people are little b*tches on here. I need more than two hands to count how many times people have blocked me for stating my opinion. There's those that start an argument, then insult you and block you so you can't say anything. There's also those who block you when you haven't even talked before. You don't know them and apparently they have you blocked for whatever reason (I guess they get triggered way too easily).
I don't wanna give names, but these kind of people tend to be the worse of GAG, and they know who they are, they tend to have shitty lives outside GAG, basically because they can't block people in real life.
I'll flip the question, why do people get mad when they get blocked lol? Its kinda the same thing right, whether you get blocked during a diiscussion or because you were trolling... who gives a fuk.
People get offended over the tiniest thing on here, like common language or jokes you use in everyday life can be found offensive on here. There are many folks who SERIOUSLY lack any kind of social skills so what's a reasonable discussion to most humans is the end of the world for them.
I personally do not block people and don't quite understand why some people do. I have come to the following conclusions:
1) Some people do it for peace of mind. They feel harassed whether by an idea or a person or they do not care for that person so they do not want to hear their opinions on anything. 2) others do it as a statement. I don't like you so I am showing you I don't like you by blocking you.
My question to you is, why do you care if you are blocked? I have been blocked before, not on this site but others and I am the most unoffendable person I know. I am the person not to block but it happens. Oh well.
All you can do is be honest, genuinely honest and intellectually honest. And use your common sense. If you aren't being effective than walk away. Most people will respond to that. Some will still block. Oh well.
Because they will always be right and you'll be wrong. They don't like to admit defeat. So if they criticise you and can't take it back, they block you in order to have the last say. Then you can't reply back, making it look as if you've gave up.
I'm here to give my own opinions so if anyone jumps on my thread to draw me into a confrontationa... I block them. I don't know why people are so affected by being blocked. I couldn't give a fuck who blocks me
Don't obsess over the people you have been blocked by I mean they could read this post and be laughing that you are still thinking of them and they have got some power kick from it. just shrug it off and talk to people that are worth the time and energy
I don't have anyone blocked but I don't see what the big deal is when we're all strangers to each other. Stuff on the Internet can get intense fast and we like to act like it's not part of reality, but it is. If a person needs to block someone else to feel more at ease on here, so be it. Even if it's blocking me. Go ahead. Other options are just skipping over posts or logging off. It's whatever man
Because people on here are immature and can't handle being proven wrong
I hate when that happens too! :) I also hate it when people delete me on Facebook for no apparent reason. Sometimes we talk every now and again but we've never gotten into an argument or anything. The funny thing is that when I send them a friend request they usually add me again lol :P Usually they're the ones who added me in the first place before they deleted me so it just drives me nuts ahaha :)
