Be careful you “block” folks…hehe. Recently, one of my fav. musicians was so bummed out when Roots drummer Questlove blocked him on twitter, he wrote a song about it. It’s hilarious.

Reminded me of the “block” option on LJ’s. I doubt I’ll ever say anything offensive enough on here to have someone block me. But be forewarned if you do, I might have to bust out my guitar and do a little ditty.

I was blocked by someone on here before because I disagreed with their opinion on something… People get so sensitive. I have never and will never block anyone on any social site. It is so silly IMO.

Ill be blocking you just to see what kind of little number you can come up with and you will not be unblocked until you sing. ;)

The consternation should not be directed at those who block, but at those whose reprehensible behavior gets them blocked by so many others.

But Dan, you blocked me. And I blocked you back. Truth out already.

Oh and the same for the “kat”

Mike, I did not block you! I have never blocked anyone on here. You must have me mixed up with someone.

^ In fact I just clicked on your page Mike and it gives me the option to block you, not unblock. So ya I never blocked you. I think its silly. It was kind of fun mixing it up with you back in the day…

If about a dozen people block Red…we could get a album out of this!

While blocking has not been for me up to this point, and hopefully won’t be, PK has a point. Some people (trolls)have it coming.

I don’t mind if anyone wants to block me. I can use a #65 block but i’ll accept any really.

Uh-oh! Wasn’t trying to fan any feuds;-)

Sounds like Mike and Kat have some people on their block list. I triple-dog dare you to unblock those folks. Life’s to short brothers. We can all be knuckleheads. Extend each other some grace.

I can play guitar, but you guys really don’t want to hear me sing…lol.

Dan, over a year ago you, Shane, and a few others followed Al when he blocked me from HPOYD. All I did was follow suit and you got caught up in it. The funny thing is that you and Shane, nor Al, were part of the specific conversation at the time.

But Shane you DID. And I followed suit in order to maintain a list of you all.

BigRedKnothead, I just usually ignore these folks and don’t engage, that is unless they try to brag that they don’t block anyone. Then I just point their error out and go my own way.

Whoa, OnlyJustME.. thats harsh and just downright dirty! :P
