I could have SWORN it was. Yes...they have that 'block' option that prevents people from responding to your discussions or seeing your responses in discussions. Fine. But I am pretty sure when you are on a public forum, and you make a PUBLIC comment that isn't blocked under a response by someone else, then John Q Public may feel free to reply to that comment. Whether you hate John or not. Especially when John is behaving himself. Now, if John is being a Richard, then report John. But getting mad at John when John is being nice...well, that's just un-American. Of course, when someone isn't from America, I guess everything they do would be un-American. Sure is a beautiful day out today.

I don't hate anybody and I hope nobody hates you. I just love that song but my favorite version is this one.
Barbra Streisand with Louis Armstrong - Hello Dolly

I have several Armstrong vinyls. One of my preferred jazzmen Some people are not long term haters : I had one who blocked me for a light sarcastic comment, and has since responded to 2 discussions. Indeed I cannot comment, as I am still blocked, but I will not complain, and I take the opportunity of this discussion to thank this member for the support to my earnings.

Yes, if you can dish it out, you gotta be able to take it, as long as it doesn't get personal.

I got a little mean yesterday. Not sure what came over me...I ended up apologizing, though I very well might have been blocked. I haven't checked yet...

Did you get blocked again? I just don't get people, sometimes it's more fun not to block just so you can comment on their posts. I haven't blocked anyone .... well not yet anyway, seems I do better just ignorin those I don't particularly like.

I've been blocked by someone for a long time. They got upset because not EVERYTHING they say gets blocked.

John who? Ha ha. I was hoping if you blocked someone you wouldnt be able to see any of their activity. But that dosnt seem to be the case.

I don't understand blocking someone. Why can't they just ignore what someone is saying and accept the pennies? Anyone who starts behaving like a troll is going to disappear from here long before I run out of patience.

I tend to pass by the discussions posted by those who've blocked me. Even when they have unblocked again, I'm hesitant to comment. They obviously don't really want my input.

Some folks just want to stay boring, being bored, saying the same old thing.

I don't 'hate' anyone. As I said, 'John' wasn't even mean.

@JolietJake I'm glad there's no hate, that's a good thing. Oh I know, I saw it. Sorry, didn't mean to get involved or hit a nerve. I'm a peace maker, can't help it.

If someone blocks me, I guess there was something I said that got their dandruff up. If someone can't take a joke or deal with a little opposition once in a while, they need to go join a different site
