That's true. I just meant that there have been a few threads here even just today where a person has been told they were making an extreme choice by blocking someone on social media.If you want to chase after the guy on twitter or other social media, well, we can't stop you. But please don't post about it here.
I don't think this is particularly a gaf thing. Just look at the countless meltdowns last year over freebsdgirl's Good Game Autoblocker tool. People get upset when other people ignore them or refuse to listen to them, and blocking can feel like a digital extension of that. I think the reaction is misplaced, but I can understand where it comes from.
