    Question...if you block someone...can they...still see your profile? Or is it just forum based stuff. Is there somewhere on the site that explains this?

    Thanks guys.

    Blocking means you can't see when he checks your profile. He can't send you email or IM's. Blocking can be done and undone at will from his profile page. I think you can still see his posts?

    Ignore His Posts is different. The effect is obvious, but you have to ask Chris to undo it, or just read the thread while signed out to see what horrible things he is saying about you.

    (Edit: Per ErikTaurean, below, you can change this yourself from the "buddy & other lists" tab at the top of the page.)

    Or create a dummy profile and then block it from your regular one and see how it works.

    I hope they're all verified, otherwise you'd seem a bit coo-coo.

    Ok, here ya go:

    1. Go to "buddy & other lists" at the top of the page
    2. On the left, see Manage Site Blocks and Manage Forum Blocks. These lists are the folks you have blocked.

    Site Blocks keep them from instant messaging, emailing you.

    Forum Blocks keeps you from seeing their posts.

    Site blocks are done on that person's profile. Forum blocks are done in the thread by clicking "Ignore His Posts". This does not prevent him from emailing, instant messaging you.

    This has been brought to you by Real Jocks For A FLame Free Forum............haha...icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    Um, if I remove someone from my hotlist will he get a notification of some sort?

    (As it turns out, he’s not the sweetheart he makes himself out to be in his profuile – quite an ass, actually icon_mad.gif)

    So there is a chance those of us who are willing to look like an ass, in fact may well be a sweetheart!icon_wink.gif

    I guess the Hidden/Deleted nuclear bomb is your only option. But if you use the site block, RJ won't tell you when he looks at your profile. The only time I ever used the site block was because some kid from Guadalajara kept looking at my profile.
