Aug 28, 2011
How to Block Persons on Google Plus? Google+ allows you to remove or block any persons from your post wall to protect your privacy from specified users.

You can easily use this feature for any reason you want. And once you blocked someone from your stream, you should know what will happens:
  1. You won't see their content in the stream or on Incoming (even though you'll remain in their circles).
  2. They'll be removed from any circles of yours that they appear in.
  3. They'll be removed from your extended circles even if you have mutual connections.
  4. They won't be able to comment on your content that was posted after they were blocked.
  5. The content you've previously shared with them will still be visible in their stream. But they can't engage with the post (comment, etc.)
  6. They won't be able to view content shared with your circles (although they may still see content you post publicly).
  7. They won't be able to mention you in posts or comments.
