What do you mean by "blocking"? Do you mean "Ignoring"? – Kyle Trauberman Oct 20 '11 at 18:46
You can try another internet. – LarsTech Oct 20 '11 at 18:47
@KyleTrauberman, yes, blocking, ignoring or something like that. – ilhan Oct 20 '11 at 18:52
@Pekka, like the guy who insulted and then removed his comment at that question? – ilhan Oct 20 '11 at 18:55
Look, why don't you try asking a bit more verbose questions instead? Then there wouldn't be a problem in the first place. – Pëkka Oct 20 '11 at 18:55
@ilhan that one comment about the intertubes in your SO question (I don't remember who the user was) was a bit snarky, yes. But the removal could have been because people flagged it as offensive - it wasn't necessarily removed by the user himself. And even if it was - people say things in the heat of battle they later regret, and remove. It has happened to me a lot of times. And it wasn't totally wrong either: If you already did some research, then say so. Otherwise people will think you are lazy. They have no way of seeing what you already did before asking the question. – Pëkka Oct 20 '11 at 18:58
Is this all because of this two questions? – Damien Pirsy Oct 20 '11 at 19:05
@Damien yes, I think so. – Pëkka Oct 20 '11 at 19:07
I see, Pekka...Too bad I missed that comment though :). Anyway, @ilhan, you must admit that your last three/four questions, compared to the many others, are in great need of a revision. Blocking a user won't do any good: you might not get harsh comments, but the Community has better and kinder way to tell you something needs a correction, so if a question doesn't fit, it won't even if comments were disabled by design – Damien Pirsy Oct 20 '11 at 19:16
@LarsTech, any you know? – ilhan Oct 20 '11 at 20:08
This topic is about blocking/ignoring others. See… It has 75 upvotes and 9 favorites. – ilhan Oct 20 '11 at 20:16
You seem fairly apt at ignoring others already. Why do you need a SO feature for it? – Pëkka Oct 20 '11 at 20:52

There is no "Ignore" function on Stack Exchange (except on chat) and I don't think it is worth it
