This is a comment that I made on another thread on GAG concerning the "block" feature. I'll repost it here:
"I just got blocked by a closed minded 47 year old women. I responded to a question that she asked and she didn't like or understand my reply. I don't mind the fact that she blocked me if she didn't like what I was saying. But I do mind the fact that she posted a reply to my comment; showing that she had no clue about what I was trying to say. Then she blocked me, so I couldn't clarify my meaning. So I wasted 10 minutes typing up a response that explained what I was trying to say only to find out that I couldn't post there because she had blocked me. If someone is going to block me then I wish that they wouldn't respond to comments".
FYI, I'm the type of person who will conscientiously respond to any comment that I receive. I'm sure that many people here are the same way. So if you've decided to block me, or anyone else here, then please do the right thing and just block the person; and without leaving some stupid comment that the person being blocked is prohibited from responding to. I say this because we don't know that we've been blocked until we've invested time and energy typing out a response just to find out that our post has been flagged. So if you've decided to block someone then please don't even respond to anything that person says. Is that too much to ask?

that's happened to me before. i've been blocked by an idiot on here for not agreeing with leftist, white knighting, logic. i've also been blocked by a person i was trying to give hope to, while having a discussion about racism. apparently this person didn't see how people that weren't white couldn't be racist. but it's whatever. i do see your point about typing up a comment only to find out your blocked. that right there tells me you are a wuss with no conviction.1

I think we have all been there - Please GaG next upgrade put in some sign that we are blocked - I am blocked by an Anon (25 to 29) and at least once a day I answer one or more of her questions, submit (You are blocked) plus I can't block her back to knock her questions of my feed so I get caught every day,1
