How to block or unblock someone on Tumblr?

Launched in 2007, Tumblr is one of the oldest online communities, which only saw its downfall following the Verizon acquisition. Similar to any social network or forum online, Tumblr has its fair share of trolls and bullies. You might even find some blogs that don’t fit well with your way of life of thinking.
