What happens when you block someone here on Y!A?
- Weasel McWeaselLv 74 weeks agoFavourite answer
simple......they simply start harassing you with their other 29 sock puppets.
All blocking does, is stop that ONE account, from answering your questions---or leaving comments under YOUR answer.
But they can still leave snotty comments under every other answer on your questions, of users that don't have them blocked.
so to that end.......they will use another sock puppet, to post an answer.........and then attack you, under that answer.
and the more you fight them, then they will just use those multiple accounts to just report and take your question, or answer falsely.
The serial trolls know every trick in the book here, and Yahoo NEVER takes that into consideration that TROLLS operate NUMEROUS accounts at once.
They take the attitude that a user with 25 accounts on the same IP address must have 25 separate users at that computer. A DUHHHHHHH -

when you block them, they can still answer rude on someone's answer in the comment section. all you can do is report them but sometimes, yahoo does nothing. some on here open up tons of accounts to insult others. .their is one who loves to cuss you and act nasty to everyone

Honestly it's not worth blocking someone. Just ignore them. Which means not answering, not reacting, not showing that you know they even exist.
When they keep on getting absolutely no reaction from you they'll get bored and stop.

When you block someone they can no longer answer your question or make comments under your answers. But that is it. You should also ignore them if they comment under someone else name and report them if they violate the rules.

that someone can't answer your questions, cannot comment on your answers, and IIRC you can't pick his/her answer as best

You cannot answer their questions or comment on their answers. You can type it all out, but answer or comment will not post. Sometimes the "Submit" is grayed out, but that is very inconsistent.

Honestly, it does diddly squat.
It only stops the user from answering your questions, but it doesn't stop them from leaving comments under someone else's answer. So technically they are still able to contact you & harass you. It's something that Yahoo needs to look into changing.

They can’t answer your questions and that’s about the only difference
