Block Anonymous Users

That’s right, we were listening! You can now Block Anonymous users!

If you find yourself engaged in an argument that won't stop, or an anonymous user is harassing you, in addition to Reporting the post itself, you can now Block that Anonymous user. The user will be blocked from interacting with you Anonymously on that post and future posts.

To Block an Anonymous User:

For desktop, hover your mouse over the word Anonymous (top of Question or Opinion), a popup box will appear asking if you'd like to Block the user. Click Yes. Click No to Unblock.

For mobile, tap the word Anonymous, then tap Yes or No.

You can always go to our FAQ for reference on these instructions as well, What is blocking? How do I block another member?

Share your opinions, tell us what you think of this new feature; if you like it, if you'll use it, if you think it'll help. Always report any issues you encounter, if it doesn't work properly for you.

Thanks, G@Gers!

  • It's about time.
    Still, If a person is anon, I don't think they should have blocking privileges.
    anons have always abused it, knowing you can't track them or block them
    I never go anon and I never allow them to comment on my posts

    • What can i do if I block someone and they still mention me and insult me?

    • Blocked users cannot comment on YOUR posts but there is nothing stopping them from commenting on OTHER users posts. If you leave a reply to a third person, there is no blocking measures in place to stop your blocked users from also commenting to that person. If you feel their reply violates our guidelines though, please report it so we will be notified and can review it.

    • Thank you... I did

  • While I like the idea, in execution I think it will be abused. I already have some issues with the current system. There should at least be some symbol to show that the person was blocked. If I say something you don't agree with, and you ask me for a link to a study, then block me, then it looks like I can't back up my claim. Then you can even unblock me and ask why I haven't provided a link to a study, and then reblock me again. It makes it look like I was lying.

    Another problem I see is that what if a person asks a question, and then they block me. Then someone else starts talking crap on my comment. They then think I don't have a good response for my position. At least a symbol showing everyone they blocked the other person would prevent this from happening. This doesn't sound very well thought out at all.

  • I still miss the you make it a rule you can block or comment/reply but not both.

    As it is passive-aggressive behaviours is rewarded, allowing to both a last word and blocking to prevent the other part to even respond.

    Blocking is fine, responding is fine, but both responding and blocking at the same time ensuring the final word is not ok.

  • I to never allow an anonymous user to comment on any post I may put out there as a question.. but do not worry about that very much at all as I give way more opinions then I ever ask questions.. I have tho replied to a post that is from an anonymous user.. but when a user to me is anonymous.. it tells me that he or she is never who they signed up as.. so I do look at those posts to see if it even worthwhile to answer anything

  • I can kinda get why this would be a helpful option. For instance, some people aren't just harassed for their questions, but are sexually harassed on here, so for those people this could come in handy (as would the report option of course). I personally think this is kind of a cool option to have, despite the fact that I almost always answer anonymously.
