This is simply these cowards wanting to be the last to stab someone. I can just edit my comment prior to that to continue and be the last to comment in the conversation, since people like these tend to recheck their conversation threads. Now they can't reply because they already blocked me, and I need not bother to see it either.
Had it happen to me once. The sad part is that it was over a compliment taken wrong. Got a harangue about something I did not say and a block in return. That was my only correspondence with that person.
Felt like shit afterwards because I ended up ruining somebody's day and had no way to clear things up.
I do not blame them. When you are thoroughly depressed and have anger issues, everything sounds like an insult.
I have not tried getting back to them, and I do not intend to either. If they have gotten the impression I am a terrible person, least thing I can do is leave them be and not prove them right by pestering them by proxy.
Nevertheless, I do not think blocking is a particularly good system. It creates interruptions in the social network, and as in cases like what I mentioned, it can unintentionally cause people who may need help to further isolate themselves. It is also far too easy to create spam accounts, so if someone wants to get around a block for the sheer sake of abuse, they very easily can - and since the block list has a limited length, the system is on the offenders' side in the long run.
But I suppose, as many wise and an equally many unwise men have said, while it is not a good system it is the best there is.
lmao did you even read the second post you’re linking? I tried very much to just assume we got off on the wrong foot. “Hey, maybe I overreacted a bit. I should try apologizing.” Instead you’ve continued to act entitled and rude not just to me it seems, but to other users as well. Raiding and derailing a thread is not an accomplishment you should be proud of, you know. And just like OP points out, blocking me to have the last word accomplishes next to nothing. If anything, implying I “have a crush on you” for merely trying to be the better man and reintroduce myself makes you look like a creeper more than me.
