Would you like to be able to 'block' users rather than just 'ignore' them? (Difference being blocked users couldn't follow you, respond to your polls, or see/respond to your comments.)

Whatcha all hiding from? I don't believe that anyone on this little device has any sway over my life. Follow me, or don't, I don't care a bit. And if you really want to find me, I use the same handle on all social media. Bring it.

No. At first glance it seems like a good idea, but consider that it could be used to block everybody you don't particular agree with, creating polls where only those of the same mind as the poll creator could enter. I envision little fiefdoms

Only if that's what the user wants... But why would that be a problem? I don't think the vast majority of users would do that.

springing up, & I don't like the thought of that.

It's kinda like the idea of a "dislike" button. Sounds like a good idea, if you dislike a person's comment. Until it's used to gang up on *you.*

I'd rather just try to get along.

Maybe. I don't know. It's not what I want to see here, though.

(And when I say "just get along," I'll add that I do my share of ignoring & unfollowing, when things get particularly rough for me.)

I agree with you Susan. I do think there should be something better though. There's some people that I'd like to not here from anymore.

It wouldn't need to be a big thing. I don't think the person being blocked should get a notice they've been blocked and made to feel bad about it.

But when a user consistently follows you from poll to poll (yours and other users) in an attempt to berate you, I think that's too much. Especially if you've no way to stop them.

I agree with what Susan said. If there is a user who is consistently harassing someone, Tony has said he has ways to handle it if you email him about it.

Who cares Susan? What's so wrong with that?

Apparently you've p*ssed off some people cause they are so butt hurt over you. It's annoying and irritating. Also a little shocking since its coming from some of the "open minded" people. *scoffs*

Exactly. It's utterly ridiculous and it's not as though *I* sought *them* out to inflict my opinions upon them. Quite the opposite, in fact.

If you ignore someone now, don't quote me, but if they aren't following you it should prevent them from doing so.
If they are really such a bother, you can always email Tony to take them off your followers, if need be

I would feel too whiny to be that bothersome...

I can contact tony for something like that? There is someone who hates me on my followers list and ever since he expressed that attitude to me, my questions haven't been ever at 100% which is what they were frequently beforehand.

If someone is really bugging you, shoot me an email. I'll unfollow that person from you, then you can block him/her which will prevent a refollow.

Yes I would like that feature. You can ignore someone all you want but they can still lurk your polls.

It'd be a nice feature to have even if I don't presently have a need for it

Beach ... I never agree with you, until now!

I never will block, hide or ignore as I see it as a cowardly way to avoid this mess we call reality.

No. I've wanted to be able to block users for a LONG time. I don't see why it's not a standard feature.

Is it so hard to avoid people currently? I guess I don't see the need, but it couldn't hurt to to have the feature. I take people get under skin rather easily?

There are some people that, when I disagree with them, feel the need to follow me around the app acting like a vindictive five year old whose puppy I just ran over.

No, there are many people who follow others just to down rate their polls and harass them at any given chance. You haven't experience that and that's awesome, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
