Longgg time no post, but this was just odd, so I had to come here and ask.
I've been just logging in recently doing Advent stuff and occasionally zapping one of my pets for giggles, never commenting on anything, visiting profiles/forums, or anything, and suddenly...
"You have been blocked by Mental. Please refrain from further contact with this user. Doing so could result in a warning for Harassment!"
When did they change it to notify you who has blocked you? No idea who this person is or why the random block when I've done jack-all on the website in years, but it kind of seems like bad form to actually actively notify someone that a person has blocked you instead of a quieter method, where you only discover if you try to interact with them. It opens the doors for the revenge-seekers or whatever. Are quiet-block systems unusual now?

It's notified you that you've been blocked for quite a while. It's one of the policies that I think is most ridiculous on site. I understand the purpose--so you don't try to get around it and keep talking to them somehow, etc.--but it's just terrible. Creates drama, makes people feel bad, whatnot. I know that in the games I play, if I block someone, I don't want them to know it. I just want a bit more silence in my life. (I'm thinking of MMOs and spamming trolls, pretty much. Why would I ever want to notify a troll that they've gotten to me?)
If you search for "blocked" in the Subeta forum you might find more info--I know there've been a few helpful posts in the past, but I can't remember what threads they were on.
