The system doesn't make much sense to me either. I shouldn't have to like you, and you shouldn't have to like me, in order for me to like your art(or the reverse). I know some artists who are complete assholes, but do good work.
But this whole website makes it too easy for people to turn into uptight twats who think they're more spechul snowflakes.
Where does it say the block system is to prevent bullying? It doesn't matter why he blocked you, he wants no contact with you. The blocks system is for preventing people from contacting you. No contact includes favourites.
I find it annoying how I can't favorite art from people who have blocked me, if I like the art but I can understand how they'd think it would be a good idea. I would hate to be fav-bombed by somebody I had blocked, especially if it were an ex-friend.
Oh stop whining to the Help Desk about everything. Spamming them with your constant art theft reports and complaints about how you think what they're doing is wrong. Calm down. There will always be art thieves and the best thing to do is to ignore them. I only care if somebody steals a friends art. :v You should let people stand up for themselves.
((If anybody is wondering what I'm talking about with art thieves and reports, see here: [link] like what *prosaix thumb nailed.))
I understand that as a reason why, but I'm fairly certain that's suppose to be covered under reporting people for harassment. If dA handled it's reporting tickets with any form of competency then they wouldn't need to do this. This current system is a redundancy based on incompetence.
