Whyblocked allows you to store the reason why you blocked someone, along with “receipts”, URLs to the posts that led you to block them.

It has a text- and a Qt-interface and uses an SQLite-database.

Screenshot Qt interface


For the text interface start whyblocked, for the Qt interface whyblocked-gui. You can also start it from the menu of your desktop environment.



Every release includes a .deb-package, an .rpm-package, a .tar.gz-package and an AppImage with precompiled binaries for x86_64(amd64). These are automatically built and not tested. You can install them with dpkg -i or rpm -i, respectively. The packages are signed with the PGP key 242E5AC4DA587BF9 (Fingerprint: F730 1ADF C9ED 2624 48C4 2B64 242E 5AC4 DA58 7BF9).

Gentoo ebuilds are available via my repository.

To start a new translation, go to translations/ and copy whyblocked_en.ts to a file appropriate for the new language. If you want to translate to french for example, that file name would be whyblocked_fr.ts.

Use Linguist to edit the .ts-files.
