if someone is on a street corner preaching B.S
it's my choice to walk away or stay
it's the same thing on line
forcing me to stay an listen
trust me.... it will get ugly
I don't block anyone....I've been blocked
Ive been blocked....
Still speaking freely....
I wonder if anyone has ever blocked Ace Frehley?
Everytime kiss comes on, i turn the channel. Block?
Definitely a block. But also a wise one.
- I've deliberately chosen to limit my exposure to Trump by watching less and less TV. Is this a form of blocking, do you suppose?
I think more and more people are using that option.
Sometimes I just block someone because they're an asshat, otherwise I do it because I no longer wish to see their content. Most of the time I ignore people I'm not interested in, but special people deserve special treatment yanno. It has free cookies.
I have her blocked, too...
What a repetitive, droning LOUDMOUTH!!
Yes, and same goes for those that single you out. Like the guy that pulls you into a corner for a private conversation and they act like you shot his dog and laughed. I know i'm usually jocular and sardonic towards antagonists, but come on lol.
there are certain people that have me blocked...(hard to believe that they do) but ask me if I really care...it's only because they don't like what I have to say, this is an opinion site supposedly...I speak my mind and others cant handle it....oh well!!
"it's only because they don't like what I have to say"
I'm not doubting you but how do you know this?
how do I know...im blocked that's how I know...I'm outspoken and say it like it is...I hide behind no one and when you challenge someone to show proof to back up their words and they can't that's an instant block...I'm not stupid and wasn't born yesterday...ive been on the net a long time and have seen penty and that's exactly what they do and that's how I know...
CT, trust me she's a real bad ** ** ...
some just have to find out on thier own
then it’s to late
I would never block anyone here. I like to read everyone's opinion about any subjects....and if insults arise, I quickly lose interest.
Not really, especially not on a site like this where they can author their own posts.
Blocking only limits their use of your comments or posts as a platform from which to speak ;)
If every Amirite member blocked a certain individual no one would be able to respond to any posts or comments. That person would be speaking their piece for naught.
True and that's exactly why it exists; to discourage negative behavior with a consequence.
They need baby-sitters, otherwise they're animals. lolz
When I was the original ChuckTom ( not Chuck_Tom) and I asked management to delete my account, I was initially refused this request so I blocked everyone I followed or who followed me PLUS other members on top of that so, in effect, I "deleted" my own account permanently.
Sweet, you beat the system! Rather ingenious CT, impressive.
I plan on doing this to the current CT account and to ALL of those in the future!
That should make for an interesting experiment. We'll know it went horribly awry when we no longer hear from you, yeah?
Not really, it just means I am not reading their stuff, everyone else can. A good reason to leave your account un blocked is so you can see how they fight with others.
You are a wise woman, R1200
Many seem to think so. Many don't understand free speech.
I think blocking is a great way of encouraging someone to spend quality time with those who appreciate them rather than those that don't, and limiting their free speech in that way is "helping" them
Oh man... what a perfectly tactful response
No it isn't limiting their free speech....
It just means I don't have to keep skipping past their dribble.
They can continue to speak all they want..
There's probably only one person still here and still blocked, out of the select few I've ever blocked...since I've been here..
It doesn't bother me at all what someone has to say, if it agrees with me or not.
I never make it personal, if you can't do the same, I'm not going to play a childish game with you..go play in the corner by yourself.
Besides some people would continue to mumble to their self, if everyone had them blocked.
Free speech isn't stopped by people blocking you....or even by a mental institute..
If you don't try to throw out and eliminate some of the crap that makes for wasted time in a day...then your freedom of speech might only wind up making sense on Jerry Springer..
I only wish there was a block button in real life.
Probably would save a lot of people from being rightfully punched in the mouth.
Management takes it upon themselves to limit free speech, so who cares about blocking. Time for a new site with new management.
I hear that!
I know this is a good time "entertainment" type of post to create banter, but most people need a lesson or two in what "free speech" really means.
I won't lecture, but it is annoying.
Nope, they can talk to whomever they want to, just not to me. I block for a variety of reasons, a differing opinion is not one of them.
I've been blocked by people whom I've never had any contact with....but I'm still out here giving my opinion.
Blocking someone is limiting the free listening/reading... the speech is still free, it's the listening that's now blocked
Free speech doesn't mean someone has to stand there and listen.
Free speech refers to the government not being allowed to tell citizens what they can or can't say, not someone telling someone else to **** off
Yes. Of course. But why do some have such a difficult time understanding this?
They desperately want to rules lawyer how people react to them being ****
I hearya... another wtf? is this: "telling it like it is" is supposed to mean their opinion is The Truth.
Nope. Is limiting my range of hearing. People can still speak as loud as they wish.
Only if the government or a subsidiary thereof does it.
And of course, that's often been known to happen, even in nominal democracies.
I'm too tired to rebut...
Plus, the inevitable will happen: Your argument would prevail and I'd be left looking like a dolt
I have just the thing for you.
Like I said... I'm kinda tired. Would you be a sweet, sexy fairy and affix this device to my (now) bobbing member?
Can't you slip it on yourself?
I suggested that um... device to perk you up out of your lethargy.
Do with me as you must to straighten me out... I'm closing my eyes...
Poor tired, old Johnny
Was haggard and scrawny,
'Til Thinkerbell sent him
A ring for his spent vim.
Next time, don't send... deliver.
It comes with a remote control.
Always flying away... so's you're just out of reach
That's for my own safety.
As I told you before, you wouldn't fit.
Unless of course, you're micro-micro... never mind.
I AM! Mini-micro-micro... come closer and find out for your (needlessly) fearful self
Seeing is believing. Besides, what happened to your previous boasts (2" diameter, etc.)?
I'm an internet wannabe Romeo... I mean, c'mon...
I've met your kind before...
I'll shuffle off now... humiliated...
Said lech'rous John, "It's time to shuffle;
My groans and sighs, I'll have to muffle."
You're too cagey, too aware...
It's natural selection at work.
The fairies that aren't careful get split asunder.
I mean from head to toe!
Not just the normal split, or even an episiotomy!
Ugh, now you're back to undinism again!
(I see what you're doin' )
"It takes tons of nerve
To become such a perv..."
But allow me a rejoinder...
Vic already tried. Didn't work for him either.
Well, I tried. But your heart belongs to only one of your johns...
He had his moments...
Yes. That John. Our JD.
Yes, sweet John of Bow Bells.
I, too, am hideous.
You're NOT at all hideous;
To say so's invidious.
I'm done. No more reparteeeeee - - - - > ad infinitum
Ok, sleep well.
When would you like me to buzz you?
Oh, I'm not gonna sleep. I'm cranking up the music... gonna fly away to another world.
I thought you were sooo sleepy.
Did the...um... device work so soon?
I told you that for a reason. I need alone time now... oldie's music. The songs that speak to me. You are too.. too
Ok... have fun.
Let it never be said that I ever denied anyone their alone time.
Well, there's room for two on my journey. *patting my lap*
Oh, but then it wouldn't be your alone time.
Thanks just the same.
I will not be deterred...
I wouldn't want anything to distract from your musical reveries...
You know I'll snare you one day... and you'll finally suck **** succumb. (Sorry... I had to go for the joke)
Now you're thinking of drowning me!
Stop trying to out-wisecrack... submit, my darling.
Like I told JD, I'll keep my crack to my elf!
You doth protest too much
I'm not playing that. Purcell? He's pre-Bach, right?
Yes, died in 1695 of pneumonia, when his wife locked him out of the house for carousing at all hours.
Now, who else would know that 'cept you?
I've sung many of Purcell's songs.
I slipped. I am gloriously drunk. Therefore, I cannot appreciate your offering of what must mean much to you.
How can you not appreciate it? The last line is
"Good claret is my mistress now."
Here's another, whose last line is "But the De'il a man will leave his can, till he hears the mighty Tom."
I want to fuvk you more than ever now...
So did the porter in Macbeth.
"Marry, sir, [drinking provokes] nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes and unprovokes. It provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance. Therefore, much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery. It makes him, and it mars him; it sets him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him, and disheartens him; makes him stand to and not stand to; in conclusion, equivocates him in a sleep, and, giving him the lie, leaves him."
My hands are man hands. My intentions are impure. Yet, you are still here.
That's ok, as long as I still have my wings.
I can still sniff, baby... and your aroma lingers
Fairies smell like violets and roses.
