Sometimes I just block someone because they're an asshat, otherwise I do it because I no longer wish to see their content. Most of the time I ignore people I'm not interested in, but special people deserve special treatment yanno. It has free cookies.

No it isn't limiting their free speech....

It just means I don't have to keep skipping past their dribble.
They can continue to speak all they want..

There's probably only one person still here and still blocked, out of the select few I've ever blocked...since I've been here..

It doesn't bother me at all what someone has to say, if it agrees with me or not.

I never make it personal, if you can't do the same, I'm not going to play a childish game with you..go play in the corner by yourself.

Besides some people would continue to mumble to their self, if everyone had them blocked.

Free speech isn't stopped by people blocking you....or even by a mental institute..

If you don't try to throw out and eliminate some of the crap that makes for wasted time in a day...then your freedom of speech might only wind up making sense on Jerry Springer..

I only wish there was a block button in real life.

Probably would save a lot of people from being rightfully punched in the mouth.

Therefore, much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery.
