  • .what's the point of still communicating thru q and answer then?

    Imagine what would happen if you couldn't see what people said to/about you, but everyone else could - you answer a question or group post, person you don't like and calls you (insert every word that deeply offends you here) and lies, saying you've done X,Y,Z horrible thing in your life. You can't see it, everyone else starts responding to it. Since you don't defend yourself, other people start believing it. Or, conversely, people start quoting it when they respond to it, so you see it anyway.

    It's why most message boards with a block function have it built in to instantly unblock any individual answer, might as well not have a block at all.

  • All it blocks is their ability to PM you

  • Under your acct settings, go to the last tab (advanced) then scroll to the bottom and type in the name you want to block. That person will still be able to see everything on your profile page, respond to you in groups and answer questions you post in Answers. They will also see your name on their block list, so asking this anon was rather silly. Once everyone has read this, they will go to their own block list and see if there's a new name there, since any time you block someone, it automatically adds you to their block list, too.

  • Under settings there is a place to block someone, but FYI they will be able to see your posts on Q & A, and answer them. You will also not be able to block them if you are chatting in a group.

  • She'll know she was blocked. Why not just do what Christmas said,and ask her not to PM you?
    Unless you're being harassed,that's a passive aggressive way to deal with it

  • what bad thing did someone do that you want to block her just communicate with her and tell her you'd appreciate if she wouldn't message you anymore.
