Tumblr interface question

Is there a way to block the gross porn bots on Tumblr, that sometimes follow you, without having to visit their page? You can usually already tell from their icons when you're notified so I really don't need to see a full screen of their stuff. Except that is the only place I know how to get Tumblr to display the blocking option, especially in its mobile app but I think this applies also to the desktop version. That site's interface is such a burning trash fire...

In the desktop version you can go to your followers and the most recent followers are at the top so you can block them from there.

In the desktop version, if you hover over their name in the in-dash notification you'll get a pop-up. Click on the little person icon and "block".

Slightly longer way: copy their name, go to Settings, click on your blog name, scroll down to "Blocked Tumblrs", click on the pencil/edit icon, and paste in their name. (Or you could retype it there. I usually c&p to make sure I get it exactly.)
