WhatAreYOuDoingStop1, if you do come back and see this;
You're a moron.
I'm not Christian. I never said I was. YOU ASSUMED
You don't block people for the following reasons:
-Someone disagrees with your opinion(s)
-Someone isn't kissing your ass, or not saying nice things to you or about your art
-Someone critiqued you
-Someone called you out on your bullshit
-A friend of yours told you that X deviant is a bitch/douchebag since they were a 'meany-head' to them and/or had a disagreement.
-Some deviant you saw wrote a journal saying "BLOCK THIS PERSON!!"
-You NEVER even spoke to that person, but you think they are an obnoxious person due to their journals or the way they talk
-You find the user using 'offensive' language. i.e: cuss words and/or other mature content in their gallery.
-A user told you what you were doing/behavior was wrong and you're trying to cover up your ass
-Someone trolled you
-Someone else blocked you
-To avoid confrontation
-To avoid someone replying back to you in an argument/debate, basically coward out.
-You feel like it
-You don't even remember why you didn't like them, but you block them anyway
-It makes you in the 'right' or automatically win an argument
-it will possibly end up making the blocked user harass you more
Also applies to hiding comments.
It proves you are a child.
When it's okay to block:
-Someone is repeatedly harassing you, or looking for drama on your page.
-Someone is trolling and it's not just "u suck" "go suck my cock" comments that are just a hit and run. I mean people who literally don't stop and ignoring isn't doing the job.
-When someone is constantly bothering you about a fight you had and you're over it. You block them and they use sock puppet accounts to harass you.
Of course there are exceptions to the rule. If things get out of hand, it would be wise to block, but do so at your own discretion.
