    Hi,
    I couldn’t disagree more…

    This is not a question of etiquette, people that find themselves blocked are usually blocked because of their own poor etiquette. I don’t know of anyone that does it immediately, unless marketed to and I think all normal people hate having a stranger trying to sell them something via e-mail, inMail, direct message etc, it’s even worse if they are just offensive for no reason.

    Jeff, thank you so much for publishing this! I’ve been getting a lot of great responses on Twitter… from “it’s super cathartic to block someone” to “yep, it definitely has burned bridges for me!” I am enjoying writing this series on social etiquette. Anyone have any suggestions for my next piece?!

    What happens if someone threatens you? I accidentally pinned from someone and she got so upset to the point where now she keeps posting pins with my user name calling me horrible names. I reported her yet nothing happens! I used to enjoy Pinterest I never thought there were people like this. It’s upsetting. I think what bothers me the most is they hide behind a computer screen and feel the could say whatever they want. Blocking is not enough.
