I think this is a valid point, but what would you do with accounts that
do recurrent @s? You don't have to follow them for them to show up in your
mentions, and that means a never ending stream of blocks.

Moreover, those kinds of recurrent tweets also show up (all other things
being equal) in Twitter Search, contaminating those results.
