decentralization = blocks are meaningless, abusers win, and those most comfortable here tend to never experience dealing with harassment.

@LydiaConwell they do not serve the actual purpose of blocking.

@mo Yes, but what makes decentralisation particularly bad? Anyone can start a new account on the ad-verse platforms. Isn't it just the same here?

@LydiaConwell i haven’t called it bad. i’m saying it has drawbacks. and yes you can do that but it’s particularly frustrating here when they can interact with your content from a blocked account.

@mo I see, blocking doesn't actually block ... What's the use in that?

@LydiaConwell i’m not the one to answer that. that’s the exact thing i’d like to get answers for.
