Why is it such a bad thing to block people?

I’ve blocked someone because I got tired of seeing their posts on JavaScript. I’ve been blocked by someone, who, I assume, didn’t like my take on Millennials vs other generations (my take being, we’re all the same).

I am trying to filter my Medium feed so that I’ll see more of what I like. I follow writers whose work I want to see more of, and sometimes block those I don’t want to see (some of the endless self-help posters).

If someone wants to demonize a billion people because of the horrific acts of a small number, I don’t want to read them either. What’s wrong with blocking them? Hurting their feelings?
