Fascinating article from 2013. Certainly applicable to online communities even after all these years.

Here's a relevant excerpt:

Many Twitter members have spent years adding jerks, haters, and abusers to a carefully crafted block list. This ability created an agreement with Twitter: "I don't want these people to interact with me again."


Seems very reasonable. Some people are simply not worth interacting with.

While the sentiment that "some people are simply not worth interacting with" is dehumanizing, I think that a platform should not try to stifle the efforts of a user to make their personal experience better.
