there's a conflation of virtue happening here.

1. I have been blocked by qldfrog for many months
2. Very recently, that block has lifted
3. I would prefer to participate in the broad church of ASF, not some selective subset .
4. I do not consider myself a troll. I do have a sense of humour, I generally don't rise to the bait.
5. If anyone thinks I am a troll, please tell me. Maybe a good filtration will do me the world of good; I will go to the reeducation camp of your choice.
What he said, same.
Must be a software bug Dona..😊

Doesn't anyone else feel it ironic that one of the most active threads here is about blocking people? On an under trafficked forum like asf? Even if Xi Jinping or Vlad the Impaler dropped in for a chat they should be warmly welcomed and engaged in lively conversation.
Well I haven't posted, so I had better not let you down.:roflmao:
I have used the block function on a couple of occasions to get trolls of my case, I find some posters enjoy trolling the general chat section, so if I block them for a few days I find they have moved on to someone else.
I lift the blocks, because I'm of the firm belief that even the worst cretin will have some knowledge worth sharing, well I'm ever hopeful.
Luckily they don't seem to post in the stock section and seem more interested in peddling their political beliefs, or just want to engage in a bit of anger unloading.;)

You can always see each others posts - The Ignore Feature only works when the combatants are logged in.
For example 'the duck' and rederob have a two way blocks on me - and yet I can still see their posts - for example the following is a snapshot of the ducks last post at 8.46am on 18/9/22.

I think you misunderstand how the 2 way block works, its not the same as just ignoring people, its an option for the people you ignore, also the removal of content is selectable.

What the DR is saying, is that even if you select the 2-way ignore, a troll who happens to be persistent can log out of their account and view your post as it is still viewable to the general public, that are not logged in.

It's only when the person is logged in that they will be blocked from seeing your post (except on the threads that only members can see of course)

Ok galumay, if you are right (and I don't think you are), how come I can still see all of the ducks posts ??

Hi VC, correct, - you obviously thought about the process, g did not.
As everyone knows I try to present an idea that will require the readers brain power, I never explain everything to the enth Degree, it's just a habit of mine.

Starting to think this "Two-way block" thread is deserving of a research grant/in-depth study into it lol haha

Ahh, Dr, thank you for your compliment............but don't listen to rumours. We all know where rumours can lead us to. Hope and yours are well.

Well if even a doctor is getting confused it may be time for me to provide the solution which I put to a few patrons at the bar for which they provided a solution.

This is the answer to the block/ignore/logged in/logged out dilemma.

It's like this:

It is very complicated, even more so when there are shorters and buyers on paper gold, options and futures, wars, famines, pestilence and pandemics .
I just go with the vibe.
