Why doesn't blocking work on Yahoo Answers?

so sick of this woman just rephrasing my questions. Blocked both of her accounts but she doesn't stop. So unfair.

    Blocking works just fine..........

    the trouble is......the hardcore trolls here, that have made this site their entire LIFE operate up to 50 accounts at once............sometimes, even arguing with themselves, to pretend they are being "stalked". 

    You may have blocked, 2 of her accounts, or 12, or 20.........but she may have 15 or 20 more accounts you are totally unaware of, and would be shocked to learn,  is the same exact person. 

    I have a stalker precisely like this.   Well, entrenched with dozens of accounts.   Some the same name.......many others,   many varying personalities..........but always the same pest.

    Blocking does work, but you may not have blocked all the accounts that user has, and if they use the Anon feature, it prevents you from blocking the Anon account. You also have a limit of 200 accounts that you may have blocked at any given time, so if you are maxed out, no attempts to block more accounts will be successful until you UNblock some of those in your blocked list.

    All blocking does is block her from answering your questions. You can block only 200 email accounts. It does not block you from seeing her questions.
