Ourch...... I'm full of food and full of alcohol....
Thinking of blocking my first person ever on a forum I'm on. Let's just say, it's somebody on this forum :lol:.
When you block someone are their posts hidden, or can they just not message you and such? If it hides posts, I'd think it'd cause threads to not make sense and/or the blocker to make out of place posts.
AFAIK, any posts and / or threads made by the blockee and blocker cannot be seen by each other. I think the only exception is when a 3rd person quotes one or the other. Not sure on that either though.
I've blocked a few people on a few sites
usually you just see a wee box with a simple msg like "cant see this msg because xxxx person is blocked"
of course, if I'm the person you're blocking, you won't be able to see this :lol:
I can see you...rofl..
blocking is rather a way of sticking ones head in the sand IMO.
If you dont like someone or something just do not respond or just tell them openly or with an IM, but to each their own.
I thought we were friends...?
Yeah in general you should just tell the person. If it was me (which it might well be, seeing as I can't think of anyone here you don't get on with), I'd just stop posting.
Well he did start a personalized thread in the flame warzone with me... so..... I can nominate myself for that perhaps.
there are 1 or 2 sites I frequent that happily tollerate folk who only post to shamelessly (and idiotically) troll threads of certain topics (Apple, or nVidia/ATi or whatever)
and that really is all they do. so screw it, I don't need to see that, so they're blocked
Good to be back online after exams
How is everyone doing?
Wonder if you can block yourself? :hmm:
urgh what a colossal PITA
Missus got issued a new VISA with completely different everything
so i need to memorise all new numbers
(last time they issued a new card they only changed the last 4 digits of the the card number)
not for someone with multiple identities
We were last time I checked. Did you unfriend me?
Nah, you're just on the other side of the pond .
You should try it for me! :lol:
It's called a damned plane lazy
I genuinely thought i'd seen everything, and then This.
Happy Birthday Niceguyrichy
