Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

Is there a way to block someone from seeing, answering, commenting or voting my questions? In other words a way to make me completely invisible to that person and vice-versa?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

On the top why you want to do this ? – NullPoiиteя Mar 11 '13 at 3:02
Because there're some people I consider rude/offensive and I don't want to see them or their comments in my questions. This kind of people usually don't answer but go around downvoting and give offensive comments instead of trying to help or contributing constructive criticism. Flagging doesn't guarantee next time they're not going to abuse me again. I really think it's better to have this feature. – Unnamed Mar 11 '13 at 3:09
No. There is flagging. Example? – Doorknob Mar 11 '13 at 3:16
But flag orr post on meta works perfactly .... show us who is rude or offensive to you ... – NullPoiиteя Mar 11 '13 at 5:27
As a side comment, I think I know the person you're referring to, and I don't think they intended to come off as being rude. Sometimes terse comments can read that way, because it's hard to express a more subtle tone there. They apologized for their initial response, and I've cleaned up the comments involved here. – Brad Larson Mar 11 '13 at 14:19
@BradLarson Thank you for cleaning up that crap. As a side comment to your side comment, I must ask: Why on earth must those people comment on my question if they couldn't find a more subtle tone? Teasing newcomers and posting irrelevant comment aren't enough to be punished? While newcomers are usually treated like crap for seriously asking something that "professionals" find easy or is duplicated by the same question asked in a different way? – Unnamed Mar 11 '13 at 21:22

You can't, except for chat. Stack Exchange is not a social network.

If you received comments that you didn't welcome, either ignore them and move on or flag them. In chat, you can ignore people by clicking on their avatar and selecting "ignore this user (everywhere)".
