teejk, I think it is funny, I am sure he is being sarcastic about…......

DKV I think you have it backwards. Every Jan 1 there should be a general block of all the members and then you get to unblock those you like….hahaha.

How does DVK know he speaks for the majority ? Never asked me. I think his suggestion makes a mockery of the concept of blocking. People can think for themselves. I recently blocked one dick. I still think he’s a dick, and my heart beat is well and truly back to normal.

Will be nice when warmer weather returns…people seem to be getting “testier” by the minute. It’s a message board, no personal interaction that should impact heart rates or any other aspect of life. But that’s just my opinion.

I am very surprised that any communication goes on, on this site, with everybody blocking each other. O wait, maybe that would be the solution. Everybody block everybody,and then sit back and relax. But that would very boring, to say the least. Come on guys be a man/woman and unblock, and lets get on with it.

Debbie, I saw you respond to one of the threads today. Soooo, I know you’re around. What do you think of this idea? Would someone flag this so we can get some feedback? Madts, can you flag this? Teejk, how about you? The safety of poopsie is at stake here… My sanity is at stake. All of you that think you’re sane…please flag this so management can read and implement my great idea.

Thanks Debbie. As you guys discuss this think of it as the Fresh Start program…or the New Beginnings program. Everyone is automatically unblocked at the beginning of the new year. Each blocker would go through their block list prior to 1/1 and “refresh” the block status….or not. To make the software easier to detect this “refresh” it would all have to be done in the month of December. Just my thoughts…

You’re in there, DKV…

Have you considered a tiered blocking system, with a different level of block applied to the individual in question?

for instance:

Level 1: 3 month block, disagrees strongly with your opinion on how to clean sawblades etc

Level 2: 6 month lockout, called you a moron in another thread

Level 3: 1 year block, starts stalking you around, causes constant bickering, it’s ruining other peoples discussions.

Level 4: Blocked for life mofo, reserved for someone special, it’s like that gate in Harry Potter that once you go through it, you ain’t never comin’ back.

All levels would auto unblock (except the lifers) after the block ended.

What do’ya think?

Umm, DKV wanted some more input on this thread. I’m afraid I’m a ‘be careful what you ask for’ DKV. My thought on this suggestion is, if I ever had felt compelled to block an LJs user, I wouldn’t want admin to go diddling with what settings I had put up, ever. We’re offered the option, and it is up to us, as grown ups, to decide when and if to use it. If someone has forgotten why they decided to block someone else, let them change it; experiment with the settings themselves and find out.
I could go on, but… you get my drift.
Sorry, DKV; not what you’re looking for, I know.

I had blocked Jorge and the Dude, but decided that was childish and unblocked them.

It’s a shame that we’re talking about all this drama and not woodworking. Both Jorge and the Dude have knowledge to add to these discussions, so it’s frustrating to have things go off the rails so consistently with them.

Jorge blocked me today, which I think is the first time I’ve been blocked. It’s his decision, and I don’t think the admins should override that.

I wonder if anybody unblocked me today though (I’m not getting any warm fuzzies so I guess not). I did block this guy on a different forum though…he was eating my pork chops

Other than a couple of sock puppets and DKV, my block list is full of folks who blocked me first. Just checked and it barely fits on a single screen (and I have a 27in 2048×1152 screen) or just short of 50. The way I figure it, when those folks want to reconsider their unilateral BLOCK, they will personally let me know. Blindly UN-blocking me is a cowards way. Man up already…

Most haven’t, so I just leave them ‘blocked’ on my end. BTW, THAT is a valuable tool in judging the validity of one’s response. We ALL know they can ‘fess up on some other’s thread and open the conversation if they wanted to , or were manning up, or such. Until then, I just sit back and chuckle at their feigned “manly” behavior. Just sayin’...

Who are the sock puppets?

I have seen this term bandied about a couple of times in the last few days.

Are there really people out there who have multiple accounts and alter egos and sit typing with one hand while the other is making a sock speak?

Of the five I have blocked ( and will STAY that way) three I am pretty sure are the same “person”. He/she/ or it? Don’t know, don’t really care. One said “he” was going to kick my rearend??? Yeah, good luck with that using just a keyboard.

Sometime, I might feel up to un-blocking them. I wouldn’t be hold my breathe on that event happening anytime soon, though.

All others that wish to start a fight, well, there is always that flag button…..

Debbie, thanks for taking the time to answer…even though it was the wrong answer. I feel like such a failure. All the sane, adult LJ’s were counting on this process to get passed and signed into law. I have really, really let them down. I’ll never be able to face them or enter the corner bar again. The scarlet letter F is for me to wear, not proudly mind you but in deep, deep shame. Oh woe is me… There is a special place in purgatory reserved just for me. Don’t blame yourself Debbie, it is all my failure for not selling you on the idea. Oh woe, oh woe… The really bad part of this whole mind blowing, self insight eye opening is that I start my part time job hawking used Hertz cars on Monday. What shall I do?

Druid says – HEYO ! Can’t believe that someone who sends out negative remarks to ennyone on any thread has an ego so bruised that they block someone, just because their ego was bruised in the process of being obnoxius.
If their obnoxiusess ego is / was deflated, so be it. Goes to show how 20+ years in the military is a learning experience, where bruised egos are a lesson learned in daily contact with assholes.

DKV: I’ve had no beef with anyone for a while, yet the same few keep continuously reminding me of why I blocked them in the first place.
At 12:02 AM Jan 1, 2014 I would re-block anyone who continued to prove they needed to be blocked. There are a few currently who might merit me unblocking them right now; time will tell. I don’t care what happens in other peoples’ threads, but I like to moderate disruptive idiotic BS in my own threads. My threads are enjoyable to read; there is only one way to maintain that quality.

Druid666: ”...Druid says – HEYO ! Can’t believe that someone who sends out negative remarks to ennyone on any thread has an ego so bruised that they block someone…”

And THAT is how I keep track of them, by maintaining my AxxHoleList as I prefer to think of it. This list gives me a ready reminder of who those bruised egos are.

This should answer @madts’ question as well, about why would I block. If LJs had a menu bar button to create an AxxHoleList, then I would have used that instead. This list has served me well.
