Most people sycophantically feign acquiesence, I prefer the more uncompromising "block" button.

The problem with people's approach of acting delighted to hear from you, or pretending to be busy, is that it that it might be they really are busy or happy to hear from you so, so this kind of second-hand-car-salesman false-friendship approach is useless and manipulative. You don't wanna talk to someone block them, it saves both of you time and humiliation.

And for the few that can't figure out such intricacies, well, too bad.
I guess being in that minority makes me somewhat biased on the issue, because while I'm not autistic I have a similar related disorder which affects my understanding of such social nuances and I postively despise these sorts of subtleties - if people don't like me I'd rather they ****ed off than pretended that they did in a special way which is meant to imply that they don't :|
