Got the same situation. Have never corresponded with this LJ and find I’m on his block list. Too bad, because he does some fine work and I can’t comment/compliment.

I’m pretty sure the only person that can remove you from a blocklist is the person that blocked you.

You could have someone you know send a message on your behalf

I find that woodworkers and internet “savvy” aren’t always synonymous :-P There’s a very good chance that someone may have accidentally blocked you and doesn’t even realize you’re blocked.

Wait.. it’s not me that blocked you is it? ;-)

I think Redoak’s got the right idea^

I wonder if we posted a message like “Attention (LJ’s name)” and asked why.

I figure it’s their prerogative.
If anyone feels they need to block me, then I’m fine with it.

Sometimes blocking is necessary, but mostly I think it’s done in spite, just because the “blocker” knows there is nothing the “blockie” can do about it.

What I don’t care for is after someone blocks me, they then reply to my comments in different threads.
If your going to block me, then don’t bother to speak to me.

I’ve only been blocked by one LJ. But this sums up that experience exactly.

Only the blocker can unblock someone. I blocked a bunch of people a while back to stop a bunch of BS from continuing. After things cooled off I unblocked everyone. I did find I had to reblock one person (robS888) and will never unblock that person again. I am on several peoples block list and just don’t reply to their threads.

Do you get a notice that you’ve been blocked? I was unaware that the blocked party would know.

The way you usually find out is that you read a post, all the way through,
then you think about an answer to help,
then when you go to comment, you see the
“you can’t participate because your on xxx’s blocklist”

(At least I think that’s how it works, it’s never happened to me) ;) ;)

I think when someone blocks you you should get a notice in your PM letting you know.
A better idea would be, in order to block someone, you would have to send them the reason why your blocking them in order to create the block.

I don’t think the block feature here is very good in my opinion. In most boards I’ve been on, when you block someone, their posts become non-existent so you don’t have to read whatever it is they have to say.

All it does here is prevent PMs and from allowing someone to post in the thread that the person started if they’ve been blocked by the OP.

Pretty much a toothless feature here. If someone gets to the point I block them, then I would be happy to not have to wade through any of their pointless posts in any thread.

Where it comes in handy is if you are the thread starter and an argument starts or one person tries to start an argument, you can block them for a day or two until they cool off. Before we had a moderator, it was the only way to stop people from ruining threads with non-stop trolling or arguing.
