True. I don’t think blocking users goes well with the whole point of being a member on a forum.
I agree with both points, to an extent - that's why I'll be limiting the blocking to 5 users per poster (will reduce this further if there's too much of a noticeable impact on discussion). If you're not getting on with more than 5 people on a forum, regularly and consistently, there's probably a reason for that that an ignore feature will not resolve.
It's worth noting that your individual block lists are self-maintained - so you can update the list as and when you like, and in response to however you're feeling on any given day.
