Well that does not help me. I wanted to block the person from commenting on anything that I have posted. I guess I can just ignore them.

Quoting Cafe GroupAdmin:

Hi,

We're sorry to hear you are having a problem with another member.

On CafeMom, you have the ability to block any member from your profile page.

Blocking a member will stop her from commenting on your journal posts and photos, sending you messages, posting in your Chatterbox, or sending you invitations.  Blocking a member does not stop a member from seeing or commenting on your group posts and/or replies.

Be aware that blocked members will still be able to see the upper left corner box on your profile page and all of your posts/comments on the site (privacy setting permitted).  This setting does not work within groups or the Answers section, only in the Journals/Photos/Profiles areas of the site.

Here's how to block a member:

1.  Click on the "More" tab at the top of any page in gray.2.  Click on "Account Settings"3.  Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab.4.  Scroll down to "Blocked Users". 5.  Enter the screen name of the person you wish to block. 6.  Click the "Block User" button.

The CafeMom Admin Team

Quoting MyraJo87: Is there a way to block people who post unwanted things in any of these groups or whatever on this site? Just wondering. I'm new to this site and sometimes these mom forums have a lot of negative Nancy's and people who have nothing nice to say. I ask questions for advise not to be judged. So just wondering if I can block these people. Thanks.

Hi,

When you see something on CafeMom you feel violates the Community Guidelines, please use the "Report This" link on the actual post/reply.

If you're in a group, that report will go to the Group Owner. If you're outside of a group, that report goes to the CafeMom Team.
