I just found out that the Block button works both ways.
Why should I let a person that blocks me see or use my skills.

I’m not sad at all. I just cannot see that if a person blocks you for no good reason at all, they should be allowed to view your posts and see your craftsmanship.
It’s a long story but that’s the way it comes down to.
Like John said, it’s a cruel world.

If a person blocks you, then YOU can’t comment on any of THEIR Posts. I’m not sure what you mean by “Both Ways” but THEY can still comment on your Posts (I think, but have not tried it.)

IF.. they comment on someone elses Post you can reply to their comments. ANY WAY you wish…Get It? ...LOL…

Some SEEM to have everyone blocked. I’ve been blocked by Guys I don’t even know! I also noticed that these same Guys have NO Buddies?? How do they do that? I didn’t think you had a choice if someone made you a Buddy.

One of them (Forgot name but would put it here if I could remember) goes so far as to say at the end of his Bio that he ….Does not send or Reply to any Pm’s. He’s been here for over a 1,000 Days I believe, and his Comments on others Posts are so Vague they aren’t worth reading. IMHO.

The Mystery continues.

I’m only interested in evocative, intelligent discussions with like-minded people. I’m not too concerned with jerky-turkey nonsense that goes on in threads started by other people with good intentions, but I have a peanut gallery that follows me around and disrupts my good threads with their ridiculous, off-topic comments, personal attacks, profanity and illogical crap that brings the good conversation to a screeching halt. So… I blocked them, and I can now have what I want here: respectful dialog with like-minded well-reasoned individuals. I participate in other peoples’ discussions at the risk of said peanut gallery taking a swipe at me….just watch! All of my vandalized threads were saved and still exist in ‘Word’...when I knew they were in danger of getting tanked by moderators. Lest I forget…(nudge, wink)

There you go Folks. As I was saying above I can’t comment on any of POOPIE’S Posts because “You cannot participate in this discussion because you are on the poopiekat’s blocklist.”

I haven’t blocked him nor will I. UHMMM? I might have in the past but it’s long since been removed.

NOW!! Is my Opportunity to Reply to POOPIE about his above comment…BUT!.... “I have a peanut gallery that follows me around and disrupts my good threads with their ridiculous, off-topic comments, personal attacks, profanity and illogical crap that brings the good conversation to a screeching halt. So… I blocked them, and I can now have what I want here: “

I can’t say anything here either because…..”I participate in other peoples’ discussions at the risk of said peanut gallery taking a swipe at me….just watch!” This Guy is so Clever!! Almost Clairvoyant!

Well..Maybe ….”Hot peanuts! Get your Hot peanuts here!” All in Good Fun Mr. Chairman. ;-}

God! Don’t you just Love this???

Ta-Dahhhhh!!! Rick gets it. You’re a good sport, sir. Though, truth be known, you are far too articulate and thoughtful to be part of the aforesaid ‘peanut gallery’.
