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.

Thanks, G@Gers!

    So, how would you unblock someone?
    Is it possible to do a temporary block somehow?
    Is this still revelant?
    • You can see the list of blocked users on your profile under "Blocks". There, you can unblock users.

    • Losalt

      But the FAQ seems to indicate that you get blocked yourself by the other person when you block someone?
      Do *they* unblock you too when you unblock them?

    • If they didn't purposefuly block you, all blocks get removed

    can anonymous be got rid of totally?

    i find many use it just to make points they wouldn't usually, and to troll, abuse or other laughable/cowardly reasons.

    would be better imho if people requested it from the admins.

    • Why? It's a good option. I don't like to put myself out there on the internet. It's not only the case on GAG, but I write stories on different sites without exposing my identity. Some people just don't like to be out there.

    • Yes. I use anonymous for non-troling things. I know bad apples ruin the bunch but sometimes I have questions I don't want directly attached to me. I've asked some pretty personal questions on here that I wouldn't have asked without anonymous because some people are stalkers and weirdos. I don't want people holding onto awkward things about me that I'm divulging to get help with. I also answer questions and offer up some details I'd rather not expose openly. For one example, in the past, I've dated a fellow GaG member. Of course I knew better to ask questions on here, even anonymously, that would have referred to us directly because he's a pretty clever guy... he would have known it was about us. But later, after the relationship, I've occasionally referred to our relationship and how we solved certain things etc. A select few know about us, so, if I were to discuss it under my identity... at least a few people would know it was him. I can think of plenty of worthwhile uses for anon.

    Wusses block out of anger and hatred.

    People who post and then block are wusses because you can't defend yourself and have to live with them getting last say in.

      I read through all the posts here. It would seem most are in favor & think it's a great feature.

    If I comment on someone's post, but the asker harass me, can I block the asker for the specific post?

      you can block the anonymous asker for that specific post, if the asker has already engaged with your opinion

    i'm getting annoyed by anon's. I feel its coward. If they can't post opinions/questions without being anon then they shouldn't be here.

      I disagree. Why restrict someone who wants an extra anonymity layer on the internet?

    • Nathand

      Well having a regular avatar shouldn't make it easy for someone to identify who you are... It just makes this site seem flooded with Anon's.

  • abundantlyrich
    I rarely have arguments with anonymous. I won't use it anyway.
