What's the point of the block button (Ask.com) ?

The person who you block can still answer your questions,comment and vote on your answers. I know it only prevents them from following you.

I know right? I was getting stalked here like last week and there was nothing I could do about it because the block button is worthless.

What a total creeper. o.o
Report as
Write to CS and give Eric the user name ! He's good at dealing with that problem !
Report as
lol I know. I finally had like 4 people and me report him so he would leave me alone.
Report as
I did that. Eric is a huge help. Both me and Ninja Jackie wrote to him.
Report as
Took long enough. I'm glad that creeper isn't stalking you again.
Report as
Yup! Eric is good at dealing with that problem!
Report as
Yes. Im so glad Eric took care of the problem. This guy was commenting on every single one of my answers, calling me annoying and stupid and just really rude things. I didnteven do anything to upset this guy in the first place. I guess he just felt like bullying a random person.
Report as
It's good to know he's there if you need him !
Report as
I'm sorry. That still doesn't give him the right to pick on you out of nowhere!
Report as
I'm against bullying! >:(
Report as
Its very good. And yeah, im against bullying to, especially when its bullying someone over the internet that you know nothing about.
Report as
True that!
Report as
I just think some punks like to bother people because they know we can't get our hands on them !
Report as
I know! It makes me so mad.
Report as
It makes us all mad ! I've had them bother me too ! Pukes and punks !
Report as
Why would anyone bother you MrWayne? your awesome.
Report as
The same reason that they did to you ! Because they can ! I just ignore them and they usually give up ! I tell them that I'm an adult and to grow up ! It works !
Report as
lol unfortuantly im not an adult so i cant tell them that. although i can tell them to grow up.

I think the point is to prevent them from finding you quickly, when you block them. I just go to Ask.com's Customer Service if I'm having huge issues with another user :)
