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.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#815500)
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.
says Lil_Princess on Oct 11th 17 (#2671666)
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)
I sense it's another one that just wants and audience; not an honest dialogue. Too bad.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671880)
(1), they do it for attention, but on here, no one gives them that attention, (2), they are afraid of anyone who will disagree with them because they don't know enough to debate with intelligent people.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671963)
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.
says Budwick on Oct 11th 17 (#2671705)
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)
You are always fair with me Budwick. We disagree on a lot of political things, but you stay engaged and give an honest debate.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671881)
Right back at ya Random! I know we've gone a few rounds, but it never got ugly, and respect for one another remained.
Interesting side bar - I looked at your profile and you say you are progressive. I say I'm conservative. Yet, we seem to agree more than disagree when you look at the little compatibility thingy.
says Budwick on Oct 11th 17 (#2671976)
That is the bases of an intelligent debate. Have a few rounds and then find where you can agree.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2672040)
You're OK Budwick. At least you argue with facts as you know them.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2672059)
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)
You can always send me a picture of your cleavage, if you want... I won't judge.
says ZonkeyBalls on Oct 11th 17 (#2671771)
Not gonna happen. lol
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671949)
Jealousy is an ugly thing.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671886)
I saw something the other day and had to put this post up. I think someone is very insecure with intelligent, attractive women speaking their mind. The clue is when they talk about cleavage as their argument. They need to ask themselves if their own actions are in keeping with that call for more Christian like posts here.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671882)
Yeah usually when they can't win they will make a comment over photos, looks, cleavage etc. That is all part of their bullying tactics. It doesn't bother me. It just shows they spend a lot of time looking at my photos.
says Tiffanee on Oct 11th 17 (#2671887)
Very bully like! The personal attacks are uncalled for. I was told once that I couldn't talk about someone in an implication because they had ME blocked! Actually, I was accused of being the blocker until the truth came out and they were banned. Well, that rule should apply to the latest since it's obvious she uses religion to make personal attacks that can't be answered. I would gladly take her on and ask her exactly what she means by her posts.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671894)
It shows an gigantic lack of self-esteem on their part and a desperate need for attention.
She blocked me before I was even aware she was on the site. Classic troll behavior.
says Tiffanee on Oct 11th 17 (#2671899)
Hope she blocks enough of us to get bored and move on.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671906)
That might be wishful thinking but most of this site certainly hopes so.
says Tiffanee on Oct 11th 17 (#2671909)
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671954)
Well with no friends to speak of, I'm sure it would get very lonely talking to oneself all day long.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671953)
Same here. lol But, knowing how evil someone can be, we're better off....their loss.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671952)
She's afraid of you.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671965)
No one should be afraid of anyone. I try and debate fairly. If I'm out of line, then I can be told. Ser does a pretty good job.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2672152)
It's very low when a person can't converse intelligently but has to stoop to judging a person by an avatar....in fact it's downright childish.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671951)
I won't lie and say I didn't see that remark offline. I did and wanted to debate that. It's when I saw I was blocked from the discussion.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2672153)
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)
Quick blocking before even a dialogue tells me they are likely a pot stirrer with an agenda.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671907)
They are just afraid of someone who disagrees with. Sad isn't it?
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2671956)
Sites never do well if posts become monologues instead of differing views. If someone follows you around to harass everything you say and they don't quit after pointing it out, block away.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2672155)
That has happened around here too.
says StarzAbove on Oct 11th 17 (#2672277)
I have no one blocked, but I know a few really needed to block a few for good reason. But then you get these shit stirrers that block nearly everyone that would not agree with them. Too bad there isn't a limit to that.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671883)
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.
says Linnster on Oct 11th 17 (#2671719)
We should take it as a compliment. Means they can't handle us.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671884)
I guess they're showing solidarity with their friends. Like I'm going to be upset by it - NOT.
says Linnster on Oct 11th 17 (#2671926)
They have friends?

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)
Some people I do want to have a word or two with. Beats putting up posts that can't be answered.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 11th 17 (#2671935)
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)
The few I have ever been blocked by were people I never had a single conversation with. I do sense they don't really want to interact.
One was canned not too long ago. He was putting up bait posts and then accusing everyone of blocking him. Then he was telling the moderators he had no way to defend himself.
Let's face it, some people stir and then cry foul. I stir sometimes too, but won't block and complain.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 12th 17 (#2672533)
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)
I respectfully disagree that they don't want to fight. They DO want to fight by the very nature of their posts and comments.
I have nothing against blocking if someone is bothering you, but I think it's lame when you put up posts that beg for a debate and then block half the site.
I see this mostly with politics.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 12th 17 (#2672542)
I don't know about that one. 'I' might want a good "fight" when I put up a thread, but others might want to just post their opinion, with no drama involved.
says dru18 on Oct 13th 17 (#2673141)
Drama is not something they are trying to avoid. Just my humble opinion of course.
says Random_Thoughts on Oct 13th 17 (#2673677)
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
