Blocked

I'm trying to understand this whole block thing.
I was in a group and they were talking about being blocked but the person being blocked can still answer. What the hell is that all about?

Why do people block?
I just don't get it.

  • Then why block someone?

    Because some of the psycho bitches on this site send death threats in PMs

  • Blocking means Nothing more than no PM's and no viewing of a public profile

  • If I block it's because I don't want PM's. The rest I couldn't care less about

  • I believe blocking only blocks someone from sending you PM's and from them posting on your chatterbox. They can still respond to you in public areas.

  • Some freaks like to PM other members and say really horrible things. Same thing with using their chatter boxes on their homepage to threaten or stalk other members. It's pretty disturbing what some people will do.

  • ^^Blocking is reciprocal so if you blocked someone they'd be show you as blocked as well. Not saying that's what happened but it's a point that hasn't been made yet.

  • I don't understand blocking someone who hasn't gone out of their way to PM you or harass you, I really don't. I'm sorry to see so many have been blocked for no reason by people they didn't even recognize enough to have done them any wrong.

  • I think it might have to do with the whole banning from Answers and how everyone suddenly was forming groups against each other, or thinking there were groups against them, etc...
