I've not had to block anyone here for a long, long time, but recently the need has once again arisen. Just wanted to say thanks to the site engineers for including that feature! It makes visiting the forum enjoyable without the constant personal attacks and harassment. Mods do a good job cleaning up the public discussion but not the PMs.

There use to be a person on here who thought he was some stud from TN. Apparently he was moderately famous in some sports circles. For some reason started sending me p(o)rn PMs of men and boys performing various acts on each other. I would block him and he'd send it using a different name. Have no idea what his problems was. I contacted the moderators and they said they would not do anything unless he sent the pictures to a moderator.
It appears he may have died in 2015.

I also have a fairly long list of the ones that have nothing to add to the conversation,trolls, just argue or fling insults.

The funny thing is that they seem to have all dissapeared,I never see their blocked posts anymore.

Maybe these aholes and idiots have found someplace other to disparage, malign, criticize or insult others.

I agree that the Mods do a great job of cleaning up discussions,one in particular that has been here since 2004,thanks.

From the parts of your post I deleted from this reply it is possible he had a change of address in 2015 and no longer has internet access.

Or a key to his door.

I think I've only had one person I thought about Blocking/Ignoring, but honestly no one has ever bothered me enough to follow through on it. You know what they say: "Don't pet the sweaty things, and..."

Exactly! I get along with just about everybody, and of course we all have differences in opinion from time to time...but when I got a PM offering to provide counseling for my "social issues" that was a hard stop for me.

I've noticed lately that the word "polite" is no longer in our vocabularies...yes, you are entitled to have whatever opinion you like, but that doesn't mean that everybody wants to hear it. Instead of politely keeping silent we voice our opinion loudly and if you don't like it, well, you need therapy.

I’m not sure why but a few years back someone here suddenly had a huge issue with me. We hadn’t even had any interaction prior to that. I ignored their trolling for a few weeks. Then the PM’s started. That was the end for me, click goes the ‘happy’ (ignore) button.

Within a couple days I started getting bothered on another forum by a person with a different user name and location. I’d learned by then so I again clicked on the ‘happy button’.

Within hours I got a REALLY nasty PM from the site Admin warning me of dire consequences that would result from blocking a moderator.

Yup, the troll here was a moderator there, but ‘undercover’ here.

I replied with screen captures of the offending messages and was told to shape up or ship out. I never even replied, I’ve never been back since.
