Today, I spent some time to go through the mylot guidelines and FAQs to find 'how to block a mylot user from responding to my discussions'. I couldn't find an exact answer for it. The FAQs talk about 'how to deal with spams and abuses'. Have you even felt to block a mylot user from responding to your discussions? How do I do that?

Why should you block him from your discussions?We should learn patience and tolerance in a social site like this.I see this a kid's fight going on inbetween both of you.Being a friend to both of you,I pray to stop such childish fights and enjoy the fun here.Cheers!

Hi Ganesh! I think you have to read the description of this discussion once again. I have never told that I want to block a person and how can you do that. I told that I wonder if there is a way to block a person in this website and I spent some time searching for that. I never asked the mylotters 'How do I block a person?'. I only asked them 'Have you ever felt to block somebody from responding to your discussions?' I am very careful and clear about what I write when I play with words. I hope you will understand it when you read the discussion description again. I wonder who is the 'he' you are talking about?

I am sorry. I made a mistake there. I meant to say that 'I never said that I want to block a person'.

There is no way to 'block' a user here on myLot from responding to any discussions. This is a discussion site and, just like offline, we all have our own opinions. In a discussion last year by a member of the myLot staff, Crash, it was stated that this was not something that myLot were intending implementing. If we each have our own opinions then they are bound to differ and the point of a discussion site is to be able to air them freely surely? As adults we should all be able to get on and respectfully agree to disagree with those who do not have the same opinion as us. I have never felt like blocking any user from my discussions here or even offline either. I have the choice to avoid them if I feel that it causes friction if I discuss with them and I see no point in a 'block user' feature here

I know which mylot user is been tried to block. This is against the ethics of mylotting. Every mylot user has the freedom to use and convey his/her feelings so long its not vulgar. Its a shame that some people want to misuse mylot for their egoistic designs. Yes as adults we have the right to air our voice decently but not arrogantly.. let some people understand this. Instead of blocking a users message, let this topic setter, block the frequent outbursts of arrogance and pride, which is annoying to say the least

I am unaware of a particular user who is worthy of being blocked but from what I read in your resonse below, something is bothering you and others. This is so sad on a family site like myLot should be

mysdianait!What they have in between is a silly fight.It all started for silly reasons and daliaj is ready to give up.But he is not ready to leave it as such.For some reasons,he avoided her posts but now coming up with words of hatred.As a witness of this problem,I am more worried how this will end.If they can regain their friendship,I will be the first one to feel happy about.

I have requested the CEO of Mylot to respond to this issue directly with the aggreived person. This issue deserves the top most priority, since it is raised by one of the VIP mylotters

Yes I have wondered myself if this is possible. But the problem was just one of those pesky trolls ,that stops in once every six months to spout off . I would like to have a notes section to remember who does not respond to their very own discussions. That really frosts my butt

I've never felt that I needed to block a mylot user before because I've always thought that everyone here was a pretty good person and had some pretty good opinions most of the time too. Plus the more people that respond the more I get helped out and vice versa. I don't really know how to go about blocking a mylot user from my discussions but I've never really tried it before either.

It seems there is no way to block a user and most of my friends who responded above has told that ignoring is the right way to be away from that person. There are some people who keep write negative comments just with the intention of irritting people. I don't know how to deal with them. I think we can write it directly to mylot if it exceeds the limit. Thanks for the response.

I don't think there is a way to block users from responding. I have never done that, and I probably wouldn't either, however if someone were to respond that was mean and nasty and a troublemaker, then I would just report them. Like diana said, we all have a right to our opinons. whether right or wrong. I will certainly let anyone that wants to respond to respond, but do it is a kind manner. I really don't start all that many discissions anyway, as I would rather post responses, so I hope I never have that situation come up. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Let us wish and hope that the situation will never come up. Every mylotter should make sure that he or she is using decent words while responding. They also keep in mind that their responses should not irritate other people. They should not forget the fact that mylotters are unable to erase whatever they have written. Thanks for the response.

There are people who like provoking others into a fight. Leave them be. Ignoring people like that has its advantage. If abusive people are allowed to vent their feelings and their thoughts, the words they wrote down can be read by everyone else. Whether the abusive people realise it or not, they are exposing their true colours to the rest of the members. This makes it easier for the others to judge who is right, and who is wrong. What is important is that you do not react in the same way. The wise prefers to keep quiet.

Thanks for the valuable response. I agree with what you have told. Ignoring those kind of people is an advantage. Abusive people expose their real character to the world forgetting the fact that in mylot they can't delete whatever they have written and everything is becoming a part of history.

Hi daliaj, just a constant recurring banned member who shows up in new guises with frequent regularity for the sole purpose of starting silly playground squabbles. I plan to totally ignore his recurrences until they get deleted which they will but before they are deleted I wish I had the ability from responding in the first place and save the bother of having him to report him.
