There will never be a day that I simply agree with someone just because that is what they want.

Love me or hate me but at the end of the day I will always be me.

(1), they do it for attention, but on here, no one gives them that attention, (2), they are afraid of anyone who will disagree with them because they don't know enough to debate with intelligent people.

Yeah, there's a small handful that have blocked me too. We are often on opposite sides of issues - which could make for lively debate. But, I think they aren't as interested in debate as they are having their egos stroked.

Not to worry Random - there are lot's of opinions here on Amirite. And there are plenty of people of all kinds with a variety of opinions. I'm finding that as time passes everyone else is more and more willing to engage in conversation.

Right back at ya Random! I know we've gone a few rounds, but it never got ugly, and respect for one another remained.

Interesting side bar - I looked at your profile and you say you are progressive. I say I'm conservative. Yet, we seem to agree more than disagree when you look at the little compatibility thingy.

That is one way of never losing a debate. Just block all of those that may disagree with you. Then you can make back-stabbing comments about those people you have blocked. Sounds familiar huh.

Sounds very familiar, especially when they make comments about someone's cleavage. But that's jealousy coming from someone who has none....you think? lol lol

I'm sure that would get very lonely, talking to oneself all the time.

I saw something the other day and had to put this post up. I think someone is very insecure with intelligent, attractive women speaking their mind. The clue is when they talk about cleavage as their argument. They need to ask themselves if their own actions are in keeping with that call for more Christian like posts here.

Yeah usually when they can't win they will make a comment over photos, looks, cleavage etc. That is all part of their bullying tactics. It doesn't bother me. It just shows they spend a lot of time looking at my photos. (hehe)

Very bully like! The personal attacks are uncalled for. I was told once that I couldn't talk about someone in an implication because they had ME blocked! Actually, I was accused of being the blocker until the truth came out and they were banned. Well, that rule should apply to the latest since it's obvious she uses religion to make personal attacks that can't be answered. I would gladly take her on and ask her exactly what she means by her posts.

Blocking is OK when it happens over a period of time. I have 11 people blocked but I have been here over 2 years. There are people who join and block at least that many (or more) without ever making a single post or comment.

Sites never do well if posts become monologues instead of differing views. If someone follows you around to harass everything you say and they don't quit after pointing it out, block away.

Yes, that has happened to me numerous times. Though I figure if they are willing to block me based on almost no interaction, I'm not missing much. Good riddance, as far as I'm concerned. I don't debate with juvenile people who balk at the first challenge to their views.

Many times, on another site that lots of us were formerly members of. Not so much on this one, although I've been blocked over even the most civil of disagreements.
I did notice that a member who has most everyone blocked, made one of their brief appearances yesterday. It is obvious, that that individual has no interest in discussing anything on their goading posts.

Well, it's been a long time since I've conversed with the person I was referring to. As a matter of fact, I don't think I ever have. That individual blocks just about everyone who even remotely disagrees with them, before they have a chance to "converse". :)

The few I have ever been blocked by were people I never had a single conversation with. I do sense they don't really want to interact.

One was canned not too long ago. He was putting up bait posts and then accusing everyone of blocking him. Then he was telling the moderators he had no way to defend himself.

Let's face it, some people stir and then cry foul. I stir sometimes too, but won't block and complain.

I respectfully disagree that they don't want to fight. They DO want to fight by the very nature of their posts and comments.

I have nothing against blocking if someone is bothering you, but I think it's lame when you put up posts that beg for a debate and then block half the site.

I see this mostly with politics.
