I use blocking to stop the incessant and irritating loud, often obnoxious (for my constitution) voices. For me, the medium feed is like going to a rave. I don’t want to participate in all the hoo-ha of the blocked, and it is usually, hoo-ha (to me) that I cannot suffer hence, I block. Still, the blocking isn’t that efficient as one will still see the unstrung responses from people one follows who have (mercy) not blocked the same people as the blocker. Medium looks a lot like Facebook to me as of late and it is mind numbing.
