Blocking Others Online. POLL

Online rejection is a subset of social exclusion. People reject others from social engagement for many reasons, and many of those have nothing to do with the person being rejected. Of course, there are, on occasion, good reasons to block someone, the online equivalent of social rejection.

For instance, if the blocked person appears to be trying to scam, defraud, or is making unwelcome advances and has not been receptive to the ‘no thank you’ signals sent.

Everyone knows that almost everyone needs social acceptance. When someone blocks another online, they are engaging in the act of social rejection, which, they know, is likely to impact the psychological well-being of the person being rejected.

Because, when you block someone, you’re basically saying, in a virtual way, “I’m done with you.” It’s the ultimate diss.
