  1. Blocking people actually doesn't block them completely


    Not sure if this belongs in question or discussion but this is the issue, but I really want to get this issue sorted for my brothers sake.

    My little brother plays Xbox One, often with this 'friend' of his. Now this friend in particular is... well... very attached, and often just spams my brother with messages and party invites, even when my brother is playing games with my family, he just doesn't
    seem to get the message. We don't want to report his friend or get him banned, he just doesn't seem to understand that he can't have my brothers attention all the time.

    Now my family including me have told my brother that whenever it gets out of hand or he doesn't stop, just block him and add him back later. Sounds simple enough right?

    Actually no... you see, there's a flaw in this system. Apparently when you block someone, they can still add you as a friend and this removes the block completely, so the whole thing is just cancelled out! There is literally no other option and often at
    times my brother just avoids his Xbox altogether because of this! I tried adjusting his privacy settings so he can't be added by randoms, but THEN for some reason when I do that then he can't play games with us online or can't use the party chat system when
    we all play games together.

    I won't go into full detail about the situation for privacy and security reasons, but that is the issue that we're having. All I know is that both of these systems are flawed and that's actually frightening because it means anyone could abuse this system.

    All I'm asking is for Microsoft to please look into the issue, at least the blocking people and having them still able to add you as a friend. If a person wants to unblock you, then that should be up to the person who blocked them, not the other way around.
    It's very a small issue that I'm sure could be solved with a few little tweaks.

    He can't just not have him as a friend as it's a very complicated situation that I can't go too deep into. I've dealt with people like this before who claim to be friendly but then just don't leave you alone and I have a policy where I don't bother with
    them.

    Again, if someone at Microsoft could please spare sometime to look into this issue, or if anyone has better solutions to this issue, I would be ever so grateful.

    :)
