The extra benefit of blocking ignorant people so they get angry and promote your ideas far and wide.
I blocked Stephan Molyneux (simply because I don't like him & his racial theories) so he just did an entire video on my IQ paper to his 800k followers.
So I can imagine Molyneux hit with episodic bouts of anger (gets worse at night): "he blocked me, he blocked me", let me have my revenge... on Youtube.
I blocked a bunch of psychologists, among whom Geoffrey Miller @primalpoly hoping he would act like a fuming primate banging in his cage after someone snatched his afternoon snack.
You want to anger psycholophasters so they say "he is wrong" using long diatribes. Also you want them to say:

"He's arrogant/egomaniac" which on Wall Street used to mean "he is not an idiot". Because if you thought the person was an idiot you would'nt bother saying nothing.
Exactly as predicted. Within HOURS. You can play a BS vendor like a violin.
