    Personally, I would find this INCREDIBLY useful. I'd like the ability to leave a small blurb such as "Bad trader", "scammer", "social menace", "bigot" or whatever along with blocking someone, that would show up privately and on the list next to the blocked person. I frequently block people for short periods of time, and remove them once I've forgotten why I'd blocked them....but honestly....it's kind of gotten to the point where I just don't even see the point in interacting with certain people ever again. I'd like to be able to separate out the wheat from the chaff so to speak, and currently, the only option I have is to either not block someone, or accept that at some point I won't remember why they're blocked and leave them permanently blocked.

    Otherwise, I guess I need a spreadsheet for this crap now. =|

    Even just the ability to go in and annotate these from the block list would be extremely helpful if integrating the dialogue alongside the block button itself is a pain in the butt.

    That would be a nice feature

    I’ve never blocked anyone. I enjoy listening to every perspective, regardless of how much of an idiot they are.

    Although I could see how this would be a nice feature to have.

    I personally only blocked one Douche Bag that PMd me and cursed me out after I disagreed with a topic he was in.

    Does "block" mean the ignore button with the microphone crossed out? I clicked the button for the first time on you. Took me a while to find how to undo it.

    Not sure if serious, but yes... block = ignore. Sorry for the confusion, it'll always be 'block' in my head, because I'm blocking them from interacting with me, not plugging my ears and just hoping they go away.

    Not sure how the other comments contribute to this feature request at all. The number of people you've blocked...or not blocked...is kind of.....pointless to the discussion at hand. This would simply be a further tool for users to self-moderate without having to waste mod time, not a hard and fast requirement that anyone use it, so if you're not blocking people to start with....there's not much point in posting anything on this thread.

    Same here and the only person I ever considered was the TheBlackKnight. Not because I didn't care what he had to say but because the length of his posts were painful to read on a phone.

    To Block or not to Block is this the question.....
