UPDATED: Blocked by someone...which surprises me

I just learned that I have been blocked by someone that I have rather enjoyed over the last year here on the site. Honestly, I am surprised by it. I only learned about it when I went to share my love and concern over a post on a medical condition. Of course, I cannot do so now. I understand that not everyone appreciates all others, but I really wish that this person would have talked with me about it. I will continue to keep this wonderful person in my loving thoughts and prayers. UPDATED: Thanks to all who posted. It was, indeed, intentional. And life goes on.

Take it easy. It can be a glitch. I've been blocked by several people I've *never* had any contact with. If you want to know what's what, ask a third party to contact the member in question. I've done that and the result was that the member knew nothing about blocking me. It was a glitch.

It might not be intentional, especially if that person is using their phone and pressed the wrong button. Let someone know so they can contact that person and let them know.

This really surprises me! You have helped many members on this site, change the way they view things. Why someone has blocked you, is far beyond my understanding! You haven't offended others, on My Lot:(

There is possibility of accidental block, I myself never blocked anyone here, if somebody find that he/she is blocked by me, then inform me. I didn't.

Well, unless you go through another, you cannot inform someone of a block, as you cannot post to them privately nor publicly.

@DesirousDreamer I would certainly not call this person a hater. however, when painting a picture, there are some who try using a paint roller to Define detail rather than using a small brush.

It might have happened by accident, sometimes people get into a rush and hit the wrong button and don't even realize it.

I think that we should all speak our minds. But I also believe that we are responsible for our own welfare. I think we need to act in kindness, instead of judgment.

I've been blocked by at least two people here that I know of and I believe it was a mistake for both. One was someone I'd been interacting with for some time and I asked the lamb to check on it for me. It was a mistake and things were fixed. The other was a member I'd see around but didn't interact with much. That one didn't make much sense since I couldn't see the why of the block. Now I interact with that person more. I never did ask anyone to intervene for her, but somehow others may have found they were blocked too and maybe she went through her friends list and found she'd blocked more than she knew and fixed it. I don't know as I never asked. If the person that blocked you is having some type of medical crisis it could be a while before you hear, or they may not see the message for a bit. I'm sure you'll find it's a mistake like we've all experienced. I just remembered a third person, a good friend here. I eventually figured out that I was the one blocking her and not the other way around. You may want to go to the person's profile and make sure you've not blocked her rather than it being the other way around.

May be it is an involuntary block, this can happen. Using a smartphone it happens to touch the block button while scrolling a profile.
