Care to share your DP block list?

I have just recently been informed about the capability of blocking content from other DP members here:

http://www.dailypaul.com/mod-suggestion-box#comment-2948900

Here is more information on this tool:

http://www.dailypaul.com/faq#block_feature

Here is my current block list which I hope to expand:

http://www.dailypaul.com/userblock/11412 (Bad link. Read the EDIT at the end of this post.)

My question is, would you mind sharing your block lists here on this thread?

If you feel like you need to justify why you have certain members blocked, go right ahead. I will not.

I look forward to your blocking suggestions. Feel free to block me if you don't like what I post, that's what the function is for.

EDIT:

I was not aware that only I had access to my block list.

Here it is for the record:

Oh please excuse me then.

I made the mistake of assuming you were a mod and that you were responsible for altering my post and making that claim.

I did not and will not mention the reasons that led me to block the members on my block list. The information I posted is true and no attacks were made on anyone.

No Block List for me.

I like to know everything that is going on and why. There have been members who I did not understand at first, but do now. Even when I/we do not see eye to eye, I am still able to at least learn something or other.

Plus, how would I know if somebody is talking about me behind my screen, lol

I would tell you who the dirty bastard was!! :)

question

how do you know by your actions,that you won't
wont block a future friend/ally,and not even know it
deacon

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I don't know.

What I do know is that I will have more time to dedicate to those friends I already have now by not wasting time on making new ones thru attrition.

i get that

i asked that first question for a specific reason
i have had a few arguments with people here,what i found
out,is this we had more in common than we thought
we just disagreed on minute points
you are right though,it does not work all the time with
everyone(its just not possible),some just like the infighting,and i think it is a means to control
a situation,and an outcome
think it along these lines,you are at home,the ones who bother you aren't,and you can just ignore them,without the ignore feature,no one says you have to respond to others who just to infight,complain and try to steal
the posts by endless nonsense
deacon

I hear you.

I will use the ignore feature anyway because I would rather skip over certain threads or comments than waste time reading them.

I know I don't have to reply to anyone, what bugs me is that sometimes I would like to have the power of "unreading" what I have just read and that is of course impossible. My best option at this time is to just start blocking people I no longer want to dedicate my time to in reading what they have to say.

It's kind of like unsubscribing a newsletter or a YouTube channel. I don't wish anyone any harm, I just don't want to participate in what they have to say.

The thread is certainly not about the 3 members I blocked as various others will be added soon. Each person I block will be for very specific reasons that I am still evaluating.

I try to change people every day. Do You?

blocked but not forgotton

it seems.

What I've found online is that most people don't need ignore/block lists and those that use them tend be unable to ignore the people on their list in any case. Really what they want block to do is maybe electrocute the listed person or something equivalent.

I wonder what would happen if you block yourself..

Would I not be able to see what I was typing?

Not blocking anyone, here.

1. I want to see what is happening out there on DP, all the thinking and ideas so that I will be better able to know exactly why I think what I think, to fine tune my beliefs, and my ability to express them. You can learn all sorts of things from people who have beliefs that you are opposed to.

2. I like the folks here, ok. If I don't like the people on a given site, I don't join in.

3. I am not the center of the universe.

Good for you.

Those are all facts I can agree with.

"2. I like the folks here, ok. If I don't like the people on a given site, I don't join in."

I like most people here too. Are you saying you like everyone without exception?

"3. I am not the center of the universe."

Maybe you are.. who knows.

What I meant by #2 is

that I like the people here, generally speaking.

Whats the point of this

It is divisive and provocative. That to me seems counter productive and is no different than starting a cyber riot on the DP. You blocked them and now you can't see them , great! Why the drama unless you are deliberately picking a fight? It should no longer affect you if you blocked them.

Come on focus on something more productive before you get banned for being disruptive.

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

This is productive to me..

How am I picking a fight if I can't read their "content" anymore?

The blocking feature was created for a reason:

http://www.dailypaul.com/faq#block_feature

"I can't stand person X. How do I block his content from appearing on my sidebar & in the comments?
(This being the opposite feature of friend content) Add them to your block list. Click the "block user" link on the offending user's profile page. They will be added to your block list, and sidebar content & comments by them will be hidden."

I have been on this website for over 5 years and was not aware (at my own fault) of this feature and now I am very happy to use it.

I am all for diversity of opinions, I just want to reserve the right of blocking out who I don't want to read anymore. Is that so bad?

I almost believe you

But you advertised your block list of users which is why I think its counterproductive.

Rule of thumb in business is never badmouth the competition. It only makes you look caddy or bad.

Just my 2 cents

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Watch that..

I don't block anyone. Only if someone starts stalking me!

So far, that hasn't happened and probably won't.

Great reason to block someone..

There must be more good reasons right?

I dont block anyone

I love to hear what everybody has to say even if I dont like it.

Do you like to hear what Glenn Beck has to say for example?

I don't and I ignore everything about him.

When I watch television (I don't even own one right now..) I try to immediately change the channel as soon as he shows up.

I am not in to self inflicting pain.

I don't have anybody blocked.

Nothing anyone says bothers me enough to block them. :)

Why on earth...

Would anyone -trust- someone else's block list? That's just kinda sick IMO.

Spam is taken care of by the mods, so you want to block people you don't agree with it? And share that?

I personally see little use in the block mechanism since the Mods would deal with anyone who was being truly abusive. They handle all spam. Which leaves the only goal to avoid people you disagree with on a single subject.

I have disagreed with many here, but have agreed with those EXACT SAME people on different subjects. Both side of that have value.

If you want a choir to preach to, you will find only yourself in this life is a perfect choir for your opinions. Which seems lonely.

The Philosophy Of Liberty -
http://www.thephilosophyofliberty.com/

This is why..

There are some people here on the DP who are constantly spreading anti Liberty ideas, in an attempt to divide the Liberty Movement, waste our time in giving them a reply, introducing confusion, trolling, etc..

"Would anyone -trust- someone else's block list? That's just kinda sick IMO."

I never said I would trust any block lists nor do I expect anyone to trust mine. I find that it would be useful for people to post their block lists because it would make my job easier to make a better judgement on those that I would personally block.

I am a bit tired of searching thru the bull to find the gems and this is a valuable tool to eliminate some of the crap.

I hope this helps you comprehend what I am trying to do for myself, if others find this thread to be of some value, so be it, some of us will be better off.

There is something on the DP for everyone, this thread apparently is not for you.

P.S. I won't block you for that reply. :)

So what he was really getting at was

trying to build a consensus for a black list. :)
