Darn it! Ever get blocked by someone you never debated with, but really would have loved to? Just happened to me. I assume they want an audience of only those that will agree with them. Makes posting here not so interesting. No wonder the site gets so dull.

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.

Haven't seen you lately... Nice to see you're back and well.
says ZonkeyBalls on Oct 11th 17 (#2671768)
Thank ya kindly. I am here & there on here. Working about a 100 hours a week right now.
says Lil_Princess on Oct 14th 17 (#2673868)
Yes, its happened to me and probably by the same person that blocked you. lol
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671687)
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.

Even we get along pretty well, although we sometimes scratch our shields. No Guns, no Troopers.
says ZonkeyBalls on Oct 11th 17 (#2671770)
"scratch our shields" - I like that! Yes, indeed. Thanks for the backup Zonk!
says Budwick on Oct 11th 17 (#2671773)
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.
says Tiffanee on Oct 11th 17 (#2671708)
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.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671750)
I've been blocked by people who have just joined and I've never said a word to them...go figure....mind you we nearly always find out they were socks down the line...the others who have blocked me, don't realize how happy they make me...
says JD on Oct 11th 17 (#2671709)
Hell, I don't care if people block me or not. I think crap like that is childish!
says Rooster on Oct 11th 17 (#2671717)
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.
says Tiffanee on Oct 11th 17 (#2671724)
That doesn't make sense. I mean......why?
says Rooster on Oct 11th 17 (#2671729)
I have been blocked by friends of someone who has blocked me even though I've never had any direct conversations with them. Their loss.

There are two types of beings in the Universe. Those, who dance and those, who do not.
says ZonkeyBalls on Oct 11th 17 (#2671777)
I don't think so, but can see your point. 😊
says Will_Janitor on Oct 11th 17 (#2671827)
Nope, just blocked by the same person constantly. I highly suggest they never unblock me, it's in their best interest.
says SynysterGates on Oct 11th 17 (#2671917)
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.
says Logan on Oct 11th 17 (#2671931)
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.
says Piper2 on Oct 11th 17 (#2672112)
I saw your comments to that person.....when they know they can't converse intelligently with you or anyone else, then they block. They don't want to show their ignorance.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2672279)
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". :)
says Piper2 on Oct 12th 17 (#2672385)
I know, see RandomThoughts posts today....she blocked him too.
says StarzAbove on Oct 12th 17 (#2672418)
I was referring to a different member, Starz, one who has blocked just about everyone on the site.
I do know that there are others who tend to block at the drop of a hat.
says Piper2 on Oct 12th 17 (#2672477)
Let's not go down this road again. If someone blocks you, it is because they have better things to do with their time, then fight.
says dru18 on Oct 12th 17 (#2672490)
Of course there is drama on here. You have a troll making comments like bisexuals have ** with children and pets and you have people who should know better agreeing with him. ** this.
says Tiffanee on Oct 14th 17 (#2673930)
Then stay and fight those trolls, don't leave.
says dru18 on Oct 14th 17 (#2674217)
Yes she is right ignorant stupid comments like that have no place here no matter your personal preferences we are all human beings and deserve to be treated with dignity respect and compassion but like always there are some ignorant Neanderthals who just have be stupid and stir things up with dumb lameass comments
