People ask questions on this site to get feedback on their issues...but I've had people block me for giving legit responses to their questions just because they don't agree with the opinion. Do you think most people only post on here so they can have people tell them they're right instead of really looking for answers? Because I feel like that's mainly what this place is right now...I'm relatively new so hopefully I'm wrong. This site seems like a really great idea...but it's really annoying when people are basically like "You're not telling me exactly what I want to hear so I'm blocking you". It's like the internet equivalent of a child sticking their fingers in their ears going "lalalala" while you're trying to give a serious response.

That's exactly what this website is and has always been. I used to watch as people were awarded "Best Answer" because they sympathized with the asker and told them what they wanted to hear whereas, if you gave any view that they didn't want to hear, they'd ignore you / block you.
It used to be worse then because bands of users would stick together in a sort-of cult and consistently downvote your answers out of spite rather than on the content of your answer.1
