    Why not just ....not blacklist them preemptively? I mean, until they say something to you, your day to day life is generally not going to be impacted. Once they do, you can block swiftly from the chat. Or if they walk up to you, same deal.

    We can't currently preemptively block another person (that's what this post is about, after all). To reiterate some explanations as to why someone may not immediately block another player:

    1) Say someone logs off because they're experiencing a panic attack, and don't block that person because of the interaction they had at that moment? You have to go out, find them, and then block them through the chat log (or targeting, I believe).

    2) Disconnected in the midst of a situation where you'd want to block someone? Have to locate them to block them!

    3) If you see a problematic person you don't want to associate with through other platforms or have been witness to a friend's mistreatment (so you want to block them)? Have to go find them!

    4) Want to block someone's alt after they mistreated you? Have to go find them!

    These are just some situations. Basically, any scenario -- and there are lots of them -- where you can't immediately block them through the chat box, right that second, means that you have to go out and locate them.

    The idea that someone's day isn't going to be ruined on the 'chance' of someone not contacting them isn't factual. Plenty of people -- survivors of trauma or not -- don't want to deal with the anxiety of contact risk. There are those who have experienced severe enough abuse that they don't even want to see the characters. Let alone risk being contacted by one of them. There are many reasons why someone would want to preemptively block another person and they can not currently do that without locating that person in the open world. Forcing someone to "stalk" a problematic person they don't want to associate with, in order to just block them, isn't fair.

    If you don't think this is a big enough deal, that's fine, this post clearly isn't for you. But, testimonies on other platforms to this being a problem are relevant. Those who have posted here are relevant. And, given the system already exists with the /tell command, there's no reason for this to not be addressed.

    I don't understand why they changed that. It was already a pain to not be able to blist someone who delog and needing to wait for them to be online to blacklist them, but WHY THE HELL changing that to make it worse ???
    I never got why we would stay on people's friendlist when you block them, so why making it even more complicated to /block people ?

    This is not adding to anything regarding the actual problem. In fact, it seems you down really care at all. As someone who has been abused by the community, I feel I have a right to blacklist people that are known abusers without having to come in contact with them.
    Your reply to this thread is at best, tasteless.
    This issue needs to be addressed immediately.
