Are you complaining that people are publicly announcing that they are now
filtering someone who has been disruptive?

If so, you're going against longstanding Internet tradition (since before it
was called the internet).  A public shunning ("plonk!") is nearly always a
sign that someone of respect in a community has finally "had enough" of
someone who doesn't "play well with others", and is a call-to-action for
others to join the same shunning.

In some places I've been, your complaint about this well-established process
might itself have earned you a similar plonking.  However, I'm willing to
accept your reaction as merely being uninformed.  You are now informed. :)
