There's just no need for it and it allows people you have no desire to interact with on any level to still gather information for harassment. I took one long term harasser temporarily off block this evening and found he's been compulsively replying to every post where I'm quoted.

This is problematic - it can be used to further degrade the experience on the site by blocking other people. If Bob has Alice blocked and Carol quotes Bob, then what does Alice see?

- The whole post by Carol but with the quote edited out? The post now lacks context and can be misinterpreted.
- The whole post by Carol is also blocked? This means that Alice is missing out on something that might be relevant, even if only part of it is related to Bob's quote.

It's even more problematic when Dave quotes Carol - what does Alice see *then*?

It's a recursively problematic suggestion. Any solution can be used to harass Alice by excluding her from conversations or making any conversation suddenly worse for her.
We do what we must / because we can. / For the good of all of us. / Except the ones who are dead.

I can't see this happening, because this was the way things originally worked, but it was changed because it was wrecking conversation flow.

anti-sign

I think the current 'blocking' feature is as far as this should go.

If this suggestion were implemented, then if I quote someone who happens to have certain people blocked (something I have no way of knowing) then my post will be hidden from those people, even though I wasn't ignoring or blocking ANYBODY.

That's too much power given to the person doing the blocking. I want everyone to be able to see my posts. If they specifically ignore ME, fine. But if they aren't ignoring me, they should see my posts, no matter who I quote.

The only way this would be "fair" is if I can see everyone's block list, so that I know if my post will be hidden from some people if I quote someone. And obviously that shouldn't happen.

And this STILL won't stop someone who is determined to "stalk" you. They can just log out or use a new account to see everything.
