    I got an IM or two on RJ and missed them, seeing only names but of course the convo times out after 10 minutes. When trying to see the profile of the guy who messaged me, it said "profile is hidden or not existing." So, appranetly I got blocked. It's too bad because the guy seemed attractive and close to my age, and grr because RJ doesn't make any beeps when you get IMs.

    Was this block too fast, rash, crazy, or just, deserved? Any kinds of "block" stories?

    who gives a shit...

    turn it off and leave it off...

    it saves conversations that go like so

    Him: Hi

    Me: Hey hows it going

    Conversation timed out...

    As titillating as those conversations are I have had to dedicate my life to more important things

    You didn't get blocked. He just hid/deleted his profile.

    I don't understand why people are so turned off by talking to each other through IMs. It's a good way to talk to people for me, personally and a lot more engaging than emails. *Shrugs* icon_confused.gif

    Time consuming, and people inevitably get pissed if you step away from the pc for a while without going through a long drawn out brb with a reason. I stopped using IM several years ago for that very reason.

    Ok, good to know.

    Yeah, for the longest time I haven't been using IM here, but recently decided to try again with it, because sometimes talking directly just comes a lot more easy than writing mails.

    Really? I just needed a simple AFK or I GTG and I'd get it. *Shrugs* I grew up in the IM age so it doesn't bother me. Oh well, to each his own. icon_smile.gif
