Personally I think that blocking is great and very necessary for this website and all other social networks and forums.
If someone is deliberately trying to grind your gears, I think it shows a great deal of personal strength to disable them from further contact with you, rather than feeling you must defend your honor and get into a petty slanging match with them.
What are your thoughts?
In the heat of the moment, this might seem a little harsh. It might seem a bit like whitewashing.
Thing is, as much as you have a right to express your opinion, others have a right not to hear it if they choose. You can always find another venue for expressing your views where you'll be welcomed and safe to do so without being booted.
