There seems to be an in-grained need for some people to act as style nazis on this site. Can I block certain people that, clearly don't take any time to answer yet get to use their imaginary "power" to squash other people's answers.
this reads more like a rant, see How to Answer – gnat 28 mins ago
The How to section does not clarify style, not in the slightest.
He is opining and that's debatable, he did a drive-by cursory smearing - no work - and then moved on. He didn't refine the answer, he didn't recommend improvements. And he didn't think about his own answer;
How is that helpful?
How is that following the spirit of:
"Keep an open mind The answer to your question may not always be the one you wanted, but that doesn’t mean it is wrong. A conclusive answer isn’t always possible. When in doubt, ask people to cite their sources, or to explain how/where they learned something. Even if we don’t agree with you, or tell you exactly what you wanted to hear, remember: we’re just trying to help."
His sole complaint was his feeling, where is that a basis for complaint?
Why this is not a rant is simple. Style is an opinion. So if I don't phrase my question or answer the "right way" some feel they have the right to do something about it. But not an actual helpful something. That's nonsense, if they don't like it they should either "improve" it or move along.
So why can't I block people that aren't helping / helpful?
