I realized that I'm randomly blocked by some people. When I go to respond to their question, it says I'm blocked.
I have blocked people too.. But it was because they were creeps. Why would someone block a user just cause they don't like their opinion? Isn't that what this site is for?

Because losers feel threatened by an opinion they dislike. They probably think we will go to their home or something xD
I've been blocked by a LOT of people for stupid reasons, like saying I'm a meat eater, or saying that cheating shouldn't be condemned. Explain me why would anyone block someone for this xD It just shows the kind of people that we have in GAG.
I've also been blocked by people I never even know existed.
I don't know what's the point of being in a site like this if you're gonna block those that disagree with you :/5

I used to try to never block people here but I gave up.
It's funny how many people think that they get blocked because the blocker has been "butt hurt" or you "won' or they're "baby" etc etc. I'm sure that happens sometimes, but less than most people think.
The fact is, almost NEVER do people on GaG show any respect for an opposing view, much less actually consider changing their own mind about an issue. Very few people here are as open-minded as they think they are. Internet arguing is the most wasteful time fuck that I can think of.
What good does it do to go back and forth insulting each other when no one will ever acquiesce?
I'll get down voted for this, which proves my point. Most people that have fooled themselves into believing they can "win" or change the mind of someone with a 180 degree opposite point of view will argue all day about how people that block have some sort of insecurity issues etc etc.
These are the same people that get pissed off when they get blocked after going on and on and on until the other person finally tires of it, or better yet, realizes that it's never going to get anywhere. They're also usually "gotta get the last word" people.
I ain't got no time fo dat.
So, if I block a user, and it makes them feel better to believe that they "won" or "butt hurt" me, I usually let em think what they want. It makes no fucks to me, because I refuse to invest any emotional energy on an Internet stranger.
I've been blocked by people simply because they didn't pick up on my sarcasm and thought I was serious. The way I look at it, their loss.
Oh well. Bring on the down votes. 🙋1
