    This topic was born from who impresses you on here and Guerilla Sodimite posed an interesting thought so I'm wondering how many people on here have blocked people. Have you wondered if you were blocked yourself and if so why?

    I've blocked 3 people and only because they literally harassed me for sex in private messages, repeatedly asked to see my private pix after I kept saying no and pretty much went online stalker on me. Very legit reasons.

    I know I'm blocked but only because some people just can't handle honest answers and lack humor (in my defensive it's not easy to detect) . It doesn't bother me in the least but it does pique my curiosity.

    I'm amazed at how many people take blocking from complete strangers personally on social media.

    I can understand if you knew the person offline. Yet it does seem people are very sensitive to rejection, especially if someone has built up a lot of lust and fantasy over a person.

    I block those I get a bad vibe with or know I'm going to be really attracted to and will end up being rejected by them.

    I've never blocked anyone. I just ignore posts by people who are obnoxious or verbally hostile etc.

    I know of only one person who posted that he was blocking me, a second time! He apparently didn't understand my humor relating to a silly, very bland (non-political and non-issue) thread. He actually did me a great service- I realized the importance of being more aware of what people are saying and to keep away from jerk-wads.

    Often it seems like I am blocked by most people, and talking into the wind most of the time. But I know that other guys feel that way too. Rarely getting feedback shouldn't necessarily be taken negatively.

    I'm sure everybody's blocked me by now. icon_mad.gif

    Apparently speaking the truth makes me a bitch.

    I blocked one guy temporarily after a big to-do, then unblocked him after I cooled off and we ultimately became friends (or a reasonable Internet facsimile thereof).

    The guys I'm tempted to block aren't necessarily the ones I disagree with the most. More like the ones who just really get under my skin for some reason, where it would be easier just not to see them. I haven't done it yet, though - it would kinda make me feel like a pussy.

    I've never blocked anyone, but I suppose a few have blocked me.

    Right now I do not have anyone blocked. I don't block for someone's viewpoint. From time to time I have blocked serial post quoters as getting rid of those who argue back and forth and keep quoting each other until each post is a mile long cleans up the thread and makes it easier to read since the posts by everyone else gets lost. Nothing against what they are saying, they just need to learn to edit.

    Oh I get blocked/ignored. According to some, I'm insufferable and don't make any valid posts. LOL.

    I got blocked by a guy that I never said a single word to nor did I violate 'rules' about looking at his cam in chat, etc. Needless to say, I am not thinking the problem there is about ME. icon_biggrin.gif

    I honestly have wondered that. Still, I know there are people out there that hate others for extremely petty reasons so I don't worry too much about it. I have confidence in the fact that I'm a good person. If someone thought it was imperative to block me then that is a personal problem.

    I'd still greet them with open arms, for I am not bound to that hatred.

    I dont have anyone blocked, but I know there are several people out there who blocked me.

    Sometimes an asshole just needs to get called an asshole, and when I do it they get upset. I wonder why...

    Never blocked anyone. Can't imagine a situation that would prompt me to do that outside of a Southbeach VS Art scenario. That shit's annoying.

    Yea I think the adults just ignore the person, instead these assholes egg me on then get upset and all butthurt. Its like the child "I CANT SEE YOU SO YOU DONT EXIST" response instead of just posting as if they arent there.

    People who think blocking is the DEVIL remind me of people who have 800 friends on Facebook and can't bring themselves to delete anyone even if they don't talk them or downright dislike them. I'll admit it, I've got a shit ton of people blocked icon_smile.gif Are these people I hate/disdain/? Hell no! I don't even know who half of them are after I block them. Racist/Ignorant/Hate speech post? Blockity block! I tailor my RJ experience to what I want it to be. But I will be judged for this. Because if there's something people who don't block anyone love to do more than, well, not block anyone, is to judge those who do.

    Serious dude? I don't block people and I don't care if you do or don't...to each his own. I don't think anyone who doesn't block is going to pass serious judgment on you. Which by the way, isn't that kind of what you are doing in your post to people who don't block?

    I'm just a selective reader/listener. I see and hear what I want and there's nothing past that. There's no need for blocking...I'm immature enough to live in my own world and not be bothered by anyone else.

    This thread's been done before. You'd be surprised at the amount of "WTF what pussy blocks people blah blah if you can't take what people say then you shouldn't blah blah" posts it got. You'd think I shot an infant.
