I used to never block anyone. I felt like it was allowing them to demonstrate that they’d gotten to me. But eventually, I realized that I don’t need to allow that kind of bullying bullshit into my space and that it’s much more pleasant to never have to see certain people show up in the comments section ever again. I’ve also reported several guys for rules violations and most of them have left the site rather than clean up their stuff. Hey, that works for me too!
