Am I blocked? How do I know?

Never been blocked, at least not that I know of, but I think I might be. How does one know when they are blocked? I was catching up on my notifications and saw someone made a comment on my post but I couldn't find it. Then I attempted to comment on her post but there was no respond button. What happened I thought. Why couldn't I comment? After making a few tries reality set in. Could it be I have been blocked? Is it an error? I know I didn't offend this person so why? Anyway, no love lost. On with the show. How was your day or how is your day going? It rained all day here so I caught up on some indoor chores.

I have no idea why but it's a new user so could be an error.

Yep, I'd say you're blocked, although it could have been quite accidental. You could PM someone else and have them ask the person what is up.

That is exactly how it feels. We retrace our steps to see what we may have said , then it could be an error.

It seems this happens from time to time and JJ's suggestion is good. Ask someone to PM the person and check.

Yes it is a good suggestion as it could have been mistakenly done.

It could be an accidental error. It happened to me, l accidentally hit the wrong button and someone couldn't respond on my post, l got a PM from another user checking up to ask why, l quickly realized l had hit the wrong button, then l corrected myself.

If there's no "Respond" or "Comment" buttons in this person's discussions or following his or her posts that means you've been blocked. I didn't know it was possible to do such a thing until it happened to me. Then it happened a second time...lol! It could very well be an accident so I thin it's a good idea to have someone PM the member but if it was intentional please don't let it get you down. I know I didn't say anything to offend the people who blocked me but I DID express an opinion that differed from theirs on the touchy subject of U.S. politics. This is supposed to be a discussion forum, isn't it? I think we can be respectful but still disagree. I guess if someone isn't willing to do that or to agree to disagree they'll just have to block me.

I never see the need to block anyone. If I have a problem with them or I can't engage meaningfully on their posts, I simply don't. No need to block. That is childish I think.

@Freelanzer My thoughts exactly. Also, if I didn't want to engage with anyone who didn't simply agree with everything I said I wouldn't participate in a site like this one. I'd just hang out with my own circle of people who share my views. I'm here because I enjoy the back and forth debate, the sharing of ideas. And anyone can feel perfectly free to disagree with me on any topic.

Ha well you should check and see if it continues I guess- but good attitude to carry on! We would love some rain here as we're in a semi-drought right now.

They probably accidentally blocked you. I asked JJ for his help and it was cleared in no time.

@Freelanzer I found out I was blocked by someone when someone told me because I could not see their profile or respond to their post.

I knew you couldn't respond after being blocked but didn't know you couldn't see the profile. Good to know.

showcase, network social, only way, list,
The only way to know if you have blocked is that when you search for it you can not find it in the chat or on your list, the same thing happens the other way around.

My day's going well ... although I slept-in a little ( all the way to almost SEVEN O'CLOCK ), so my 'schedule' might feel a little odd (i.e. instead of eating 'right now' at almost 8:00, I'll probably eat at 8:30 or 9:00). Maybe the person felt like your writing isn't 'on their topic' enough. No harm, no foul ... it's like if you wrote books, they'd be in a section-of-the-library that the person blocking you never goes to. You probably should feel the way Stephen King feels about 'people who don't read horror novels.'

It would be nice to get an automatic message saying "you've been blocked" so we don't bother trying to leave comments.

It may be accidental. You could not interact with that particular person if he blocked you.

It can be difficult to know, but if you visit their profile page you should see 3 buttons entitled Follow, Send message and Block. If the Block button is it present then they have blocked you.
