    Blocking users?

    Is it possible to block another user so that they cannot see your activity? For instance, so they cannot see your comments anywhere on the site, or see your favourites/when you faved them?

    I think this sort of feature would be ideal for those situations where you have an awkward stalker-type follower...

    This currently is not possible.

    The only thing regarding favorites is that you can hide them from user view entirely.

    If I block a user, does it stop them from "following" my works?

    Yes. They shouldn't be able to follow or friend you, favorite your posts, comment or send notes.

    Full disclosure regarding ignoring followers: I wasn't sure of the interaction myself so I did some testing and discovered a bug. Ignoring a user will prevent them from following you, but if they are already following you at the time you ignore them, they will not actually be removed as a follower and will continue to get notifications. Devteam has been notified of the bug.

    Oh my gosh, thank you for the clarification. I hope they fix this soon '_' I don't like to block users, but sometimes it's just the best solution.
