Do you block people just for having opinions different to yours?

Like if they say a whole bunch of stuff you don't agree with... In my opinion, that doesn't warrant blocking someone. That kind of ruins the whole purpose of websites like these where you're supposed to see a multitude of different opinions. I wouldn't block someone just for that but I noticed I'm blocked by a couple of people I haven't even interacted with, so... :/

  • No, I only block people when their crude and gross or they won't leave me alone when I've asked them to.

    I've had someone block me over disagreeing on how to cook something πŸ˜‚ It's pathetic, it's fine to have differing opinions - it's what makes life interesting

  • There are times when doing that simply helps keep the peace.

    There are other times when you can tell someone is a complete and total fucktard that you have no desire to ever interact with. And I don't mean "different views" that are legitimate varying opinions. I mean just a flaming fucktard. ✌

  • No. I block people if they harass/antagonize me. I also block people when I've told them that I'm not going to keep debating with them, but they keep spamming my opinions with posts.
    I think it's stupid to block someone you've never even interacted with. I still get kinda surprised when I try to answer a question or comment on an opinion, and it turns out the person has blocked me, when I have no recollection of ever even talking with them.

  • You should always be willing to listen to other viewpoints so long as the other person's opinions are well reasoned and grounded in facts. I follow some people that I've had long "discussions" with here. I found them to be intelligent, enjoyed interacting with them and thought it would be a good thing to continue to hear what they think.

    • the moderators are right wingers who will harass and/or eject anyone they don't like

    • @lucius46ad lol... some of them are ok but i know a few are exactly as you say

  • No , just obnoxious people , and those who come across as psychotic. I never block people who have a different opinion, but I block people who jump on mine. My opinions aren't up for debate. I give my opinion so it won't be changed by anyone

  • No, i only blocked one user on here ever. She was calling advise i had given and truly believed was sollid advice lame insulting me in the process. It wasn't even her question , i was having a talk with someone else when she decited to interfere and call me out for my dating behavior that way. After such a low blow i no longer care about her opinions and chose to no longer see her contributions to the site.

    Anyone else who had disagree'd with me sollidly constructed or not have never been blocked or disrespected.

  • no not at all. i would rather try and discuss or debate the subject though i do come up against a few shouters here that like to throw insults rather than try to justify their angle. those are the ones i will block because there is no need for it here. most of us come here to learn or to help rather than troll

    • No need, they're probably going to do the blocking for you.

    • @goaded I wish. Those people are like machines always spouting the same stuff and hating on others. I meant to say if it's a slight disagreement then no.

    • Plus there are those people who simply refuse to admit it when they're wrong and get mad at you when you insist on relying on facts.
