Who do you think is the most blocked, non-troll person in the politics section?

Within the past two days, I've blocked by at least two of the more aggressively idiotic posters that we have here. Both felt the need to respond to me and then block me before I could even read their responses. It's a shame, because I'm sure they were solid gold. Getting off track!

I'd like to try to figure out among ourselves--since I doubt SW will help or judge--who is the most blocked, genuine user in politics. People who block the most are not eligible! ...but pssst, dear SW, you should let us know some statistics!

I've lost count of the number of people who have blocked me and there are probably a few others I don't know about. Most of the right-wing people on the site have blocked me and at least one liberal that I know. If SW provided stats on that, I'd be interested in the number.

I know me being blase about this probably makes me look like a total d**k but then the reasons why people block you on here are usually ridiculous; on the political section anyway. Some people just don't want to have their opinions challenged and are happy preaching to the choir.

[@335805,LvChris] Its not an anti-American thing. I have met plenty of Americans and was married to one for a few years. Its just that I am a leftist.

Yes, BlueMetalChick and ManifestoofthePhoenix are probably the closest to me politically on here. TyphoidJerry and KaliKali are slightly to the left of me, though I agree with them on most things.
LvChris · 41-45, M
[@422868,Burnley123] Whenever I think of Kali, I think of ... DUN DUN DUN! Comrade Doge!

[@335805,LvChris] That is cool.
I think you once told me I'm a strong contender for "most blocked". I admit, I do block rather than get into continuous arguments. 😃

[@335805,LvChris] I think she was getting married so has less time. Fair nuf
[@422868,Burnley123] You may know she lost her mother last year. She posted a story in January but I haven't seen her since then.

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] I didn't know. That is tragic and thanks for sharing.

for Non Troll probably Burnley hes says he gets Blocked By Conservatvies all the time
JohnnyO · 36-40, M
[@406205,Babylon] True He is
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
[@406205,Babylon] [@105699,JohnOlinger1] Aww. Thanks guys.

Tbf I do go for sarcastic put-downs if people are rude or stroppy with me. I only do that with people who hit low though and I'll be polite to people I have strong disagreements with as long as they are polite to me.
[@422868,Burnley123] if they can't take that they shouldn't dish it out. I've never seen you be unreasonable.

Some consider me a troll, but I'm sure I'm not :P
However I do get blocked a lot, inside and out of Politics. So I'm throwing my hat in the ring.
LvChris · 41-45, M
[@479586,DeineMutter] I'm not sure if you count because I've seen you troll and try to actively get blocked; other times you're just being genuine. I won't disqualify it, but if you won/win, it'll come with an asterisk~! 😇
SW User
[@335805,LvChris] D:< when have I ever actively tried to get blocked/reported?!
How dare you accuse me of such things?
Mamapolo2016 · 70-79, F
[@479586,DeineMutter] And that's something for all of us to consider. Do trolls know they're trollish?
TheProphet · M
171 people have blocked me over my views so far. I know because I have a second account to see who blocked me.
TheProphet · M
[@335805,LvChris] No I don't ask them, mostly because I genuinely don't care why. I still see everything they post so I guess the laughs on them. I'm sure many think I am an asshole. Again I don't care.
LvChris · 41-45, M
[@11267,TheProphet] Then you shouldn't claim that all those people blocked you for your views. 😇 Also, not that its my business, but ew... you're one of those. People with multiple accounts are gross, imho. You don't care, well... maybe just enough to have a second account to keep tabs on everything.
TheProphet · M
[@335805,LvChris] There might be a few who just don't like old white guys. I like having 2 accounts, but I don't post on the other one.
Kingkyrie used to get blocked lots but he's left now
LvChris · 41-45, M
[@406205,Babylon] 🤔
[@406205,Babylon] KingKyrie left ? I liked him ! 😢
[@328496,bijouxbroussard] me too 🤗
Mamapolo2016 · 70-79, F
There are a number of candidates for that dubious distinction. I don't think I could do better than the top five or ten, and I won't do that because it seems mean. Maybe deservedly mean, but I am just too nice. Go for it.
Mamapolo2016 · 70-79, F
[@335805,LvChris] That's my question. How do you know if they're trying to get blocked, or just genuinely and authentically obnoxious?
LvChris · 41-45, M
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] When I say troll or non-genuine, I don't mean to imply they are trying to get blocked. The goal of a troll is to [i][b]not[/b][/i] get blocked, so they can continue trolling.

My favorite troll, hands down, is [@411766,USAalltheway]. Being a troll, however, does invite an increased number of blocks because of it's very nature. An honorable mention to [@467787,DonaldTrumpet].
JohnnyO · 36-40, M
[@335805,LvChris] Yes The Troll Donald Trumpet funny trolls some find him annoying but I find him amusing
ladycae · 100+, F
most of the biggies have blocked me like Cherokee Patti when i had actual evidence her claims were a lie. lol still laugh over that. but some people i do really miss like rootin tootin. i wish she would come back. might help her deal with mom's passing.

and then i've had people block me for the stupidest reasons. i'm like wtf did i say?
ladycae · 100+, F
[@328496,bijouxbroussard] from replies i've seen i think she does,
[@1119,ladycae] Then it's just as well she's blocked me.
ladycae · 100+, F
[@328496,bijouxbroussard] it's a shame really. we had been friends at one point. but when she posted outrageous lies about Clinton that i could easily rebut because they involved a friend of mine she didn't want to be made a blatant fool of. she is one who drank the kool-aide.
