Is my nemesis leaving?

I saw a rather odd short-lived discussion pop up earlier...the title was directed to me personally. In it, I was told that a person here would be 'unblocking' me after the 15th of this month and until then I was not to 'worry' about what they did. To begin with, I have never 'worried' about what they do. I have often laughed, and wondered where they get the ideas they appear to have about things I say. As a point of fact, I have thoroughly enjoyed our little spats. And I think if they leave, some of the joy I experience here will go with them. But I do appreciate their concern for my mental state. Isn't it great that we are all members of a quite dysfunctional Interwebs family?

I'm fed up of getting blocked...I mostly keep my mouth shut about stuff now as I can't be bothered with the hassle.

They not even decided to leave me blocked, they cried to Admin because I commented to a comment they made and I was asked not to 'tag' them anymore

@JolietJake I don't agree with this blocking option on a discussion site...end of I've never blocked and never will

Unblocking? Anyone who knows JJ knows he does not worry about anything here . . . what an odd announcement. Surely you will do something (in their mind) to continue being blocked !

What a boring world it would be if everyone agreed with everyone.

A little friction here and there can do quite a bit to enliven a conversation

Dysfunctional it is. I enjoy all the characters on here. Some are rather opinionated and others really make me wonder how they make it through their lives. I know it takes all kinds to make a world. I am curious to know who this person is as I have had some near run ins with a few on here. I just state my comments and responses with directness and honesty and I think that some can't take it. To each his own. What can they do anyway? Report you? Do a drive by? What?

I think most families are dysfunctional. It's only the degree that varies.

I agree, it's 14.3 °C here right now and probably quite different where you are

I've never joined a writing site yet which didn't have its warring between rival factions and I've seen all sorts of daft fallings out over the years. It's one of the things that makes me take all the sites with a pinch of salt. Some people I think definitely seek the drama wherever they go. They love it!

Perhaps some of them were Drama majors in college

@JolietJake Perhaps. I really do think some people join for the drama, not the writing. It can be like being back at school sometimes.

It's almost as much fun as watching reruns of Jerry Springer at times

I don't think the kind of people I meet is as surprising as the kind of people I become friends with sometimes
