    I don't know if it's possible, but it's just a suggestion and I think many RJ'ers would like it too. icon_smile.gif

    I don't think so. I don't know if anyone on this site has blocked me, but if they had, I would still have access to his profile. What I would not be able to do, I believe, is to email or IM that person.

    That's correct, and it doesn't make sense, when you block someone, you don't want them to be able to view your profile!

    Or if you dont want them looking at your profile...dont have a profile. The only time I use the block feature is when people continuously send me harassing/threatening hate mail, which is more often then you think.

    it's not about not having a profile- that would really only be a "last resort" and only necessary if i was getting threatening e-mails/harassing messages. I'm talking about people who you might know personally/dislike personally or people who say negative things to you in general.

    Nothing has made me not want to have a profile, but sometimes I wish I could block some creepers from seeing my profile. Let's not be too extreme.

    yourname2000 saidOr maybe you can just see the first page of the person's profile (so you know they haven't just left or are hiding) but can't click any pics, or even scroll down, and a big dialog box covers most of the profile with the message:
    "THIS MEMBER HAS BLOCKED YOU"

    And bonus points if you could check off reasons why you blocked the guy and those would appear in the dialog box:
    "Because you're a douche";
    "Because when I read your posts, I loose IQ points";
    "Because you're so fugly, your face hurts my feelings",
    "Because if I wanted to nagged by a crazy bitch, I'd call mom"
    ...or maybe we could our own up.

    Thoughts?


    I like this idea! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    This is so easily defeated. If your profile is public, they just need to log out, or enable their browser's Private Browsing mode. If your profile is not public, then they just need to log out and create a new account. icon_lol.gif

    They could easily create a fake account, and it would probably encourage a lot of people to do it. So would be easily defeated and create undesirable unintended consequences with all the fake accounts.
