7. Has someone made you unfollow/block them without a second thought because of a petty reason?

I'll admit, I'm not a big blocker. I know people block others left, right and centre on here, and that's totally fine--whatever makes you happy, but I'm also pretty selective in who I follow in the first place? My dash is something I like to maintain pretty obsessively :'D. As much as I'd like to follow everyone I RP with, it's just not going to happen. Due to full time work and being severely OCD with my dash and not wanting to be overwhelmed by content I'm not totally interested in, I don't follow a whole bunch of people.
I've only blocked like... 3 people in my life here? All because they were incredibly toxic people who were abusing me and my muse(s) one way or another. And even then, it took years of abuse for me to end up blocking them, because I'm honestly just too fucking nice half the time :( I'm an empath, so it's easy for me to put myself in their shoes and try to be the good friend. Unfortunately, it's bitten me on the arse. They were hard lessons learned, though, and nowadays, if I see any red flags, I just unfollow and steer clear of people who I find I don't jive with.
I wouldn't say it's petty, but I have unfollowed due to vague blogging, too many RL faceclaim posts (because it's just something I'm uncomfortable with), and too many ooc posts, especially if they are guilt tripping and constantly depressing.
I'm also not a follow for follow blog. If I follow, it means I want to interact, so if we don't interact after a while, then I'll unfollow. I certainly wouldn't block anyone for those things, tho!
Remember to check a blog's rules for who starter calls/inbox calls/etc. are for before liking or responding to the call. If you can't remember, check the rules again, they are there to refer to at any time.
Also make sure to check you are still mutuals/being followed by the other blog or if they have restrictions like that and you're unsure.
Some blogs also put those requirements in the tags of the call/prompt/post such as "mutuals only".
If you don't fit the criteria yet continue to interact with those posts, it shows the other mun that you haven't read or are purposefully disregarding their rules.
I wanted to thank you for your posts over the weekend pertaining to the holidays. I lost my father nearly twenty years ago... and normally its been easy to shrug off and tune out but this year it just got in my face again and reopened old wounds. It was comforting to know that there were a few users like yourself that were providing kindness and thoughtfulness to others who have lost parents. Whether we lost them a while ago or whether we lost them more recently. So I just wanted to thank you for helping provide me with some grounding on a day that became unexpectedly overwhelming. Thank you for your kindness.
This honestly put me at a loss on what to say at first anon. I’m very glad I could be able to help with such a thing and while I might not have dealt with loss or strain with my parents I know that it’s not the same for others. I’ve lost my grandpa for over ten years now and I know that pain very well to where it still hurts at times to think or talk about him.
Holidays like that might not always bring joy to people and can cause pain but with that people should always be considerate of those around them and take in mind on their comfort and safety as well.
I’m so sorry for the loss you had anon and I hope you are feeling better and heal once more. Know that even if he is gone though, your father is most likely watching over you and is probably very proud of you and how far you’ve come.
I’m glad I can be one of the people to help on such occasions and I hope things for you are doing well.
Take care of yourself now anon and spread kindness to those around you and offer love and support when needed as I will do the same when I can.
