    Yeah yeah, yada yada, don't take things on the internets too srsly.

    But it still annoys me when folks block for no apparent reason. Maybe it is the suddenness of the message that pops up:

    "This user has blocked you".

    Gee, thanks for the notice.

    I only block people if they are total ass-bags in the chat, like that one guy with the 258 sock accounts who comes in trash talking folks all the time as the stereotypical "Internet Tough Guy", or spammers.

    Or maybe, just maybe, for being generally creepy (yeah, a lot of out of shape guys wanking... might be block-worthy - I just don't look at their cams).

    But as a fully clothed guy, pausing on a cam to check out the guy's profile, only to get blocked 3sec later? Meh.

    So for those of you who check out the chat rooms from time to time - what would make you hit the block button on someone?

    I have only blocked about 3-4 guys. Usually its because the keep harrassing me after I've gave the hint I'm not interested. I have also accedently blocked a guy when I've just wanted to "dock" them, but usually correct the mistake shortly thereafter.

    I clicked on a guy's cam for two seconds and got blocked. I didn't care about it, and moved on. At another time, he was in the room again and seemed really popular. This time though, he was dissing guys, and bragging about how many people he's blocked (over 3000). I still didn't care, but wondered what type of guy would take such sordid pleasure in being so arrogant.

    In his 'About Me' section, he says that he's a nice guy, etc.

    Haha! YEAH, SURE HE IS!

    Tsk!

    Another instance, I was chatting with a guy, and suddenly he blocks me. He's replied to my stuff in the forums recently, though. Maybe he forgot who I was?

    It's also funny when someone blocks you, then proceeds to watch your cam. What's up with that? Those are the only people I've ever blocked. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

    @ >3000 blocked: I think I might know who you are talking about ... if it is the same guy, he does it just to get a rise out of people and make drama.

    He seems to be in the chat like 18 hours out of the day, or something, as whenever I have popped in, dude is always there.

    I blame the economy, which no doubt has deprived such a useful soul as his from a productive job, heheh.

    And for the rude unwarranted blocks, I usually return the favour, if not to shake my tiny little fist back at them. icon_razz.gif

    He very well might be. It's strange how most of the others are really nice, but he's the odd one out, trying to make other people feel bad.

    The thing is, he seems to get along well with most of the other popular guys in there, and it's a bit sad that those nice guys put up with his obnoxiousness.

    Haha I doubt this thread will have a lot of people from chat... very few of them seem to linger out of the chatroom at all!
    But i've been blocked before for no apparent reason which pissed me the hell off. I only blocked one guy who kept creepily messaging me to unlock pics.

    People use the CAM function in this site? Im casting judgmental eyes to more prominent forum members (looking your way Alpha!)

    If that's jimjock, he's one of the ones I blocked, for being a douchebag. I'm not afraid to name and shame.

    And then sometimes you get blocked even if you aren't an old creepy wanker _and_ you have pics (tonnes in my case) and a running cam.

    I guess in my case with the (perhaps unintentionally) rude chap that blocked me simply didn't like my face (and I admit that I am decidedly unpretty at 3am in the morning in my heavy winter jammies) ...

    Or perhaps I was blocked because said pyjamas were the same colour as my couch, neither of which match the throw cushions.

    Bah, is there no end to the flakiness of the gay male at any age?

    Either way, the more annoying thing than getting blocked by some random schmuck is that damned ego-deflating system message... icon_neutral.gificon_redface.gif

    Eh... Well I don't know him well enough to say for sure if he is. If other guys can talk with him humanely (he's nice to them), then I guess he isn't all bad? I dunno... But if you* blocked him, then... Maybe he is?

    *I think you're one of the nicest guys on the site. I'd like to chat with you more (on cam or not), but I don't know what to talk about :X

    Yeah man, it has happened three times since I have gone in there. Two guys for no apparent reason, and the last time because I was antagonizing him out of the boredom of the chat.

    But when they block you, even though they can't see what you right, it is kind of fun to call them all kinds of names. The other guys who can see it laugh. It makes for a good time. At least, it breaks up the monotony of reading:

    "Yeah, take that cock is hot."
    "Yeah, let me see that asshole." (really?)

    and what Frosted Flakes said.

    lifefit1 is awesome. He makes the room so much fun. I remember one time when somebody talked him off of a ledge for an hour. It was so much fun. It is like live flame wars.

    They question should be why were you in there in the first place. Those are for pervs.

    Definitely! The closest two friends I've got (not that super close actually) both came from chat. You'll be surprised, it isn't all dicks and dicks. There are nice people and unhorny people too!

    Plus simply messaging sometimes makes it inconvenient to reply quickly...
