A ‘Not today’ function
A temporary blocking feature for when you want to ‘disappear’ from someone for a day or period of time. Think of all the times your just not in the mood for a certain someone and wish you could hide for a day, you still want to keep them as an option later. Just not now lol.
Would like to be able to just snooze people to take a break for 30 days without having to block which is permanent, and to unblock a person you have to unblock everyone
There should be a feature that, instead of fully blocking a user, just disallows them from seeing their distance from you, while others still can. Personally, I don’t block people who are getting creepy and starting to stalk me because I want to keep an eye on them to see what they are doing. This stems from an issue I had where someone used the location to find my house, sent me their GPS location that they were parked outside of my house, then left. I reported their profile twice but the moderation team did not address it. I do not want to block them because I want to know ahead of time if they are threatening to come to my house again. Because it is an anonymous profile, I do not know who the person is and cannot identify them if I were to call the police. Disallowing them from seeing my location when they were starting to get obsessive would’ve saved me from them discovering where I live.
I upvoted this as I’m sure I’m not alone when I’ve told someone “not interested” or “that was messed up and disrespectful” or even “why are you contacting me again?” To be then verbally assaulted. I’ve told someone that they’re bio points out how distasteful they find “ghosting” mid conversation, yet they’re doing it to me right now. You understand that’s a little hypocritical right?
Their response? “Shut the **** up you whiny little f****t 🤣🤣🤣”
In real life I’d have gladly committed an assault and battery against this person. In real life that person wouldn’t ever say this to someone else’s face, as they’d be asking for a beat down by doing that.
On grindr though I got blocked specifically as I began typing. They waited til I read their evil little comment and blocked me only after. That’s not acceptable. And many people do similar if not worse things. I’ve been called a racist pos and beyond for simply saying I’m only interested in other white men. Yet how many accounts title is “bbd only” or something similar? I doubt they get blasted as a racist. And anyone that says anything that vile will block you when they’re done. Assuming they think you’ve read it.
I think that having access to the conversation, removing the reply and allowing a report and block option is necessary. When both parties have a reason to want to block the other, why does only the first to do so given the ability to block? With how often I find myself needing this I can’t remember all the people who I’d never want the option of speaking to again. Yet they have full control of our ability to contact each other? That’s not right.
To keep from having the inevitable mass reports from bitter people who have been blocked simply create less reasons to block, or warn people attempting to report another that unless this is a valid reason to report someone, they can be banned for frivolous misuse of the reporting system.
It’s disgusting. It’s the second worst and easiest to correct issue besides the now 14k upovoted “user verification request” which is still not even being responded to.
I think this app needs to be removed from Apple and android stores. It’s negligent in preventing hate crimes, criminal activity, fraudulent misrepresentation and more.
That should have said blocking *a user not *our user.
Do not hide user profile or delete long conversations from my view (often w/months invested) just because one user blocks another. Just BLOCK only.
Ideal option for users that would like to not be seen by our coworkers and bosses.
Enabling would immediately remove profiles from view. Disabling would allow them to be seen again.
The text "hidden" would be written across our profiles so that we remember to disable it once we are ready.
