I'm curious as to why people wanted the 'block list' feature to come back. In most cases I forget who I block and that's just that. Not that I hold grudges (I do) but I just never think about it after that.
Do you permanently block people or is it generally temporary?

I got along for years without blocking anyone. Then one very antagonistic, rude person just when crazy and ended with "fuck off". I had been trying to answer a question, she somehow came up with a strange interpretation of my opinion, then went ballistic when I tried to explain what I was trying to get across. I decided that there was no way I wanted to get into another conversation with that person, so the block went up and it is permanent.
And I had at least one guy block me. He was getting fruitcake and I was thinking about blocking him when he blocked me. That was fine with me.
What gets weird is trying to follow a conversation of an opinion and many comments when one of the commenters is a blocker/blockee. You only see some of the conversation and it doesn't make sense.2
Permanently blocked. I used to have over 100 people blocked but they deleted them all after the site switched over. So now it's only like 30 :(2
I've never blocked anyone. People on the internet are too unimportant for me to hold grudges against them. (shrugs)0
Ironically enough, the people that I've blocked all ended up leaving the site. So I go unblock them AND also never deal with them again. Win-win!!!2
I block them and forget about them. I don't want them to bother me again.2
Its usually permanent. I don't wanna deal with them ever again soo, yeah.
One time this guy was an asshole to me for like no reason, so I returned the attitude and later made him look stupid. Then his gag gf hit me up like, why you being mean? He was trying to be nice, blah blah. And I had to tell that bitch off two.
So I ended up blocking two people. No reregrets.1

I usual judge people on their actions (ones I personal see) so if someone burns a bridge then I'm done, I don't see why it should be any different weather its in real life or blocking someone on here1
I only block temporarily people who annoyme or piss me off, but I am still blocked by other people on here0

It depends on the situation. Sometimes I unblock at a later time and sometimes I don't. If a user is being hostile to me on a particular post and will not stop commenting, I may block just to diffuse the situation and then later unblock them.
However, if I see a user is hostile, antagonistic, or offensive in EVERY post they make, or if they are repeatedly harrassing me, then I will block them indefinitely.1
I've only ever blocked one person on here, and it's permanently.
I don't really block people unless I have to. And if I have to, it obviously means that it's permanent. I don't block people for silly reasons. I literally block them if I don't want to have anything to do with them. That in itself kinda defeats the whole temporarily blocking someone thing.1
Once they're blocked it's forever.2
Depends on why I blocked them. If you deliberately insult me, troll me/troll my question, send me inappropriate messages, you get permanently blocked. If I just have a spat with someone in a comment or on my answer/question and I get annoyed, it'll be a temporary block. I rarely do that though.
I don't think I've ever been blocked by anyone here, at least not to my knowledge.0
block em for life ha ha2
I block forever, if I didn't like them before why would I unblock them?0
I don't block users on here.0
I block them for life 😏0
