Note to All

# 85 I’m just going to put this out there once and for all… Please be informed that I refuse to use the Block feature on here. I wish there is a way to turn it off or something so I don’t have to keep worrying that I will accidentally block anyone. There are 2 reasons of my worries: 1. I use my mobile sometimes to myLot and it’s so easy to touch the wrong thing on the tiny screen. 2. As nosy as I am, I do go to members’ profile page a lot and it’s where that Block button is. I know I’m being careful always – but, if anyone happens to run into my discussion and cannot see the Respond button, please PM a third party to inform me so I can rectify it. This is to confirm that any blocking done by me is 100% accidental. I don’t see any reason to ever use it to block anyone. Thank you for taking note of my accidental blocking worries...

The solution would be if we could block someone only in two steps: 1. Blocking 2. A box should appear with: Are you sure you want to block this member? This has been suggested repeatedly. It would very nice if admin @GoAskAlex could install it.

The same here. I never block anyone, and yet sometimes we might get notified by members asking us why we blocked them. And some members are also thinking it could be by accident, but some members take it seriously and get upset. It would be nice to have this feature individually disabled so we don't have to worry about it. Like you, I am also worried as my kids sometimes grab my electronic devices while I am cooking or cleaning and they start messing around.
I would imagine that accessing the site from a device that has a smaller screen would be difficult. I can tell when some members are posting from a smaller screen device as there are simple errors in their typing, keys are too close. I have read where other members have accidentally blocked members without that intent.
