Block Your Enemies On Gmail

Bye, trolls: you can now prevent the most offensive/annoying/persistent denizens of the internet underworld from contacting you forever.

In a post last week on the Gmail Blog, product manager Sri Harsha Somanchi describes Gmail's blocking feature:

"Sometimes you get mail from someone who's really disruptive. Hopefully it doesn't happen often—but when it does, you should be able to say, "Never see messages from this person again."

Future mail from your blacklisted addresses will be marked as spam - (and, if you change your mind, you can unblock under Settings).

Sri says they've also added another way to stay on top of your inbox - the unsubscribe option, which allows you to opt out of annoying mailing lists directly from the Gmail app.

On Flatbush Avenue, tucked amidst the nexus of four iconic Brooklyn neighborhoods (Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and Prospect Heights), medical cannabis company Citiva opened up their newest location at the turn of the new year. Walking through the shiny glass door, you’re first struck by the sleek tidiness of the front lobby. Both the dispensary's resident pharmacist and receptionist greet visitors as they clear patients (as does any medical dispensary in the country) before allowing them through to the retail room.

Can we see some ID please?
