I just blocked someone I care about. Is that a normal thing to do? He's been my friend on both of the sites for ages, but he is somehow different now.

Maybe he is dealing with things in his life that are affecting him. And it feels negative to you.
It never hurts to ask.
I stay far away from the block. Way too easy to do. Not so easy to undo.

I don't block people easily. Hardly ever.

Everybody has to have a chance.

You have to do what you think is best, Zonkie. I never block anyone but if you're getting negative waves? Do what you must.

I don't know.

Bub went hostile on me and I tried to keep a mature stand, but... He... There's something wrong with him. If you can help him, please, do so. I really like him. He is my bloody friend.

Ahhh, Bub!
Zonk, I don't know him well, and to be honest, I think he dislikes me. But, I've noticed that he has a short fuse sometimes. A few times he's come back later and apologized - that was when I was moderating though - and he may have thought I was influential or something. He had me blocked for a while, but I noticed - just today that I was unblocked by him and a couple others that had bailed on me when there was a kerfuffle a month or so back.

Anyway - my point is, that Bub is likely to be back in short order. Sorry for your trouble.

I don't know if it's normal or not but what I do know is it must have been a hard thing for you to do since you've been friends for so long, Sometimes the best thing you can do is go with your gut instinct.

It's being human. We all have our insensitive and insecure sides.

I wouldn't know. I am aware that people sometimes do that, but I'm not sure how "normal" it is. If I did ever choose to use the block feature though, I doubt if I'd feel bad it. Especially if that person was in the habit of blocking and unblocking others all the time.

People change and sometimes, what we think about them changes. I've blocked a few on here and haven't regretted blocking those I did. As I've gotten older, my tolerance for some behaviors and some people has just gone down.

Sorry to hear that. People change for various reasons, and it hurts to lose a long time friend and not know the reason why. I know exactly where you're coming from, been there myself. (cry)

Sometimes. I had "friends" that decided their hatred for one person outweighed there feelings for me. So, in painting with a wide brush, they included me in their numerous and repeated insults. Who needs friends like that?

Try not to block if you can. I personally don't find anything, or anybody, that is too much for me to handle on this site.

You should never block friends, or anyone else..Bub has his demons to deal with and it affects him at times, but he is a great guy and he means no harm...we all have our problems that people on here are not aware of and we should just support them ..blocking won't solve the problem....unblock him and wait until he is ready to talk...

I have no problem with blocking. Like I have said a few times on here, I would unblock anyone if asked but I never have been so that just tells me I made the right decision.

Some people on here are idiots who just seek to cause trouble may sound harsh but just block them is sometimes best decision
