    Ok.... But blocking is also a bad thing. People do it just being bullies alot of times. And the kick out of party option should be wiped off the Xbox map, because alot of time people do that for no reason and they are just being bullies.

    Hey Guys!!! I got my blank ATM card from CARLOS FERNANDEZ. My blank ATM card can withdraw €3,000 daily. I got it from him last Month and now I have €70,000 for free. The card withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for the installation of my gas plant station and enough money for me and my 3 kids. I am really happy i met Fernandez. Fernandez sent the card through UPS Service and i got it in 4 working days. Go get yours now. He’s giving it out to help people even if it is illegal at least its from the banks treasury not individuals account but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. The card works in all countries except Philippines, Mali and Togo. Fernandez email address is pcgblankatm@yahoo.com contact him now and end your suffering be discrete when you write him cause he works without no traces so follow accordingly until your atm gets to you otherwise he will decline to do business with you

    Just report them for real harassment, block them so they can't see what you're doing. Also, it's not a woman's problem, I get trash talked and stalked as well, as a guy.

    I agree!! I have this guy making multiple accounts to stalk me! I wish there was a way to disable the follow feature. I wish when you blocked someone it blocked the entire console, not just the gamer tag because that person just makes new gamer tags and continues to harass me. I keep blocking them but he keeps making more! It is very frustrating!!

    That sounds like a great idea! I'm not in the Xbox Admin Team (I'm in the Windows Development Team) but I will pitch it to a friend that does and see what happens.

    The 1st comment is the best one. You already have your block option. Maybe you should just play offline if you have such a big phobia for stalkers.

    Your Profile -> Privacy settings -> Custom -> View details & customize all you are asking for is there.

    Mister Luthor, blocking someone doesn't keep them from seeing anything set to public: online status, profile, games list/activity feed, or friends list if it's set to public, unless that has changed for x1 which I highly doubt. Blocking only keeps them from messaging or friend requesting. If your online status is public, they can still follow you game to game, watching you. As you can tell, I speak from several bad experiences. I have my friends list always blocked & yet all my friends are "suggested" to my silver account which shows MS have no understanding of the need for privacy.

    I'm on board with that. There are some folks that just don't quit and will rage for days on you for kicking their but in a video game. No matter how many times they get reported!

    Totally agree with this - regardless of Gender. The current method of "everyone is your friend" is just plain stupid.

    If I play with someone once online in a PvP game, they friend me and now they can track my every move and be a follower. My only recourse is to Block them so they can't contact me which is just stupid.

    Why did none of the Designers / Engineers play Xbox 360 where they got it right, unless we accept a friend request, they can't be our friend.

    Mister Luthor... Your MISSING THE POINT !!
    Followers are "UNWANTED INVASIONS OF PRIVACY", and unless there is a way to 'TURN OFF FOLLOWING' in mass, and not individually, it requires the person being followed to MANUALLY HAVE TO DELETE THE FOLLOWER. If YOU, Mr. Luthor had to manually delete 1400 followers would you enjoy gaming on XBox, or would you prefer to go Playstation because you get tired of deleting followers? Think this through before you respond with answers to peoples questions, and respect peoples PRIVACY Please !!

    I think following should not be aloud also

    It should be like the 360 where someone sends u a friend request and you except or block/decline

    Not more stalking Sorted

  • ElvenBlossom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This needs to be added, it's ok everyone saying just go to their profile but when you have 1500-3000 followers, that would take a long time and we are on our Xbox's to play games, not to spend everyday blocking people individually.

  • MoltenDarkman commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The follower list is for people that add you but don't add them to your friends list. They all ready have a blocking system on xbox one you just have to block them.and just because they add you as a friend, dose not mean you have to add them. There for they will be on the follow list by default. There is a privete and security settings box in the setting area where you can costomise what you want people to see and not see.

  • BLUEDRAGON M17 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    mi girlfriend have the same problem. but im prefer one option, do not let receive messages from people who do not have personally added in friend list. Not even from followers.

  • KSI Scotland 7 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Mister Luthor, In theory that Is correct however you are not removed from their friends list, I am about to post up this up again as I just spoke to Xbox support on something very similar.
