Spotify admits adding a block feature is a "good idea" but has no plans to implement it
Almost every decent service has an option that allows users to block other users for whatever reason they wish. However, some companies don't think that allowing users to take advantage of such a feature is a good idea.

Spotify doesn't have a block option yet, so you everyone can see what you're listening at any given moment if they know your username. A report by Buzzfeed published yesterday offers an example of why Spotify should add a block feature as soon as possible.

Consumers had been asking Spotify to implement this particular feature for years, and it was only this year that the company has decided to switch the status update of the block feature request to “good idea.”

Unfortunately, even though it believes that this is “a strong idea,” Spotify says that adding the block feature to its music streaming service is not on its current roadmap for the moment.

"and send me emails about it" And why not just block his email, and redirect all email from unknown sender to spam.

This. I always have a private session as no one needs to know what I'm listening to.
