    It actually blocked the person? You can no longer see them and they cant post on your questions?

    if you block the user they will not be able to send DM(direct msgz) /can't become ur fan you will not get tag notification from that person

    Well that's dumb.. Blocking someone should not allow them to comment on my questions or allow me to see them. What if your being harassed or bullied? Are you just suppose to be okay with them continuing to post on your questions?

    I have.. @myininaya removed several spam posts by two users who would not stop posting on my question and the one kept accusing me of cheating and saying I was breaking the rules by asking people to give me their opinions on my essay.

    The block button only blocks the person from messaging you. Nothing else.

    Then the block button is useless. You can go to notifications and set it to only allow people who you are a fan of to message you. If im blocking someone im not going to be their fan. Honestly the block user button should be removed or changed so that it does what people would assume it does. Like I did at first. Usually a block button actually blocks the person you are wanting blocked. Example facebook.

    Openstudy is not FB....if you tried to block a person so that you can never see them then posts would be messed up here's an example |dw:1441415796642:dw| Or in the chats.... http://prntscr.com/8cqbpu See the posts done make much sense do they? :c

What if your being harassed or bullied? Are you just suppose to be okay with them continuing to post on your questions? \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) i understand that. But i'm not agree with `blocked users shouldn't be able to post comment on ur question` here is a reason 4 months ago ) there was a user who blocked me cuz i wasn't giving her the answer so i think it would be the good idea for those users who always looking for the answer (not the explanation) they can easily block the person who was trying to explain and welcome the DA man into the thred

    True. But what if your being harassed or bullied? Do you have to put up with the user posting non-stop on your questions?

    Pm a mod. If we make block buttons so that people cant comment on your post then your post would make no sense as i showed u.

    Yes I saw and read all that. But it could work if it was set up right.. And I did have a mod do that @myininaya did. She removed quite a few posts and told them to stop but they kept going.

    Its kinda hard to fully ignore when your asking for people to give their opinions on an important essay and when my notifications and email keep going off.

    The internet should not ruin your happiness if you are bugged by these people pm the person tell them to stop (nicely) if they dont listen simply report and leave it to the mods if nothing happens ignore. If its getting to you then its your fault....you shouldnt let people get to you like that and ik how you feel you aren't the only one who has gone through this i understand but theres really not much to do. Mods do their best but at the end of the day being a mod is voluntary right? They cant be here 24/7 so your best bet is to... \(\huge\color{red}{IGNORE~:)}\)

    I didnt mean it in that sense. What i meant is if something is bothering you, then you can't blame the other person for their actions bothering you its your fault for letting it get to you right? :P Anyways bottom line the block button works.

    Okay. So your saying when shes bullying me and harassing me I shouldnt blame her for her doing that? The next time it happens (the third time) Ill make sure to tag you with the mods so that you can see whats being said.

    I noticed that.. But a few of the mods have their messages blocked (only people they fan can message them) so thats a bit difficult to do..

    Don't mass tag thats against the Code Of Conduct. Also mods have the right to do what they want as they are users of the site too.
