1. Sign into Google+.

If silencing the person is not enough, you might want to block the person altogether and stop seeing his or her content in your stream. Blocking also prevents the person from commenting on your content, but the person will still be able to view your public posts.

6. Click Report/Block (Person's Name) from the dropdown menu in step 4 above.
