Care to share your DP block list?

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

Here is more information on this tool:

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:

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

- deleted per DP posting guidelines -
DO NOT ATTACK OTHER MEMBERS

Would you mind posting that list?

I would personally find it useful.

Sure I don't mind.

"anothernobody's Block List

You haven't blocked anyone
To block someone, go to their account page and click the block option."

So do you block people because they wont agree with you or what? No offense but it sounds a little cowardly to me. Plus you're denying yourself possible information based on a prior prejudice. There are people I don't like but I do not block them because everyone is capable of edification even if it is few and far between for some people.

I didn't have anyone blocked till now..

I am blocking some members for various reasons.
I find that reading what some of them post is a waste of my time and if I have the DP given ability to block their "content" from polluting my laptop screen, I am going to use that ability.
It saves me time in finding the good stuff I want to read and eventually participate in discussing the topics I care about.

There are some people here on the DP who are possibly paid to post crap and mislead others who are still learning about freedom, liberty, free markets, etc.. with the intention of pushing away newcomers to this website by creating confusion. If you have the time and "courage" to "debate" them, please go ahead, I am moving on to an other method of using the DP.

Are those reasons enough to satisfy you?

You don't have to satisfy me. :-)

But in response, I can just ignore posts by people who are contrary without having to block site of them. I also believe that if there are those who as you say: "are possibly paid to post crap and mislead others who are still learning about freedom, liberty, free markets, etc.. with the intention of pushing away newcomers to this website by creating confusion.", then shouldn't that be all the more reason to keep an eye on them to try and keep the record straight for those newcomers? We cannot win a fight of information if we allow the opposition to go unchecked.

Just my opinion.

Exactly. I agree.

"..the record straight for those newcomers? We cannot win a fight of information if we allow the opposition to go unchecked."

I agree with you 100%.

Do we all have to do that "job"? No I don't think so. I am tired of doing that here on the DP and look forward to using the DP in an other way. I plan to read more and participate less because the time I can dedicate to using the Internet is becoming scarce. I would say that 80% of the time I dedicate to using the Internet is spent here on the DP and if I take a good look at how I have been spending that time, I can see that some of it is wasted.

Thanks for your opinion.
