How do you know if you have been blocked and how could I block someone, which I would never do?

I block ultra liberal whiners and an idiot woman from Venice beach.

Several. Some of the most prominent, vocal, and -as it turns out - abusive über-conservatives on SOH.

Probably, I have been really ugly to a few idiot liberals.

Yes, but I don't have any idea how many. I don't have a clue why anyone would put some of the people commenting below on ignore.

Yes one person I know of in an argument over handicap parking spots. I've never ignored anyone myself but I'm pretty sure I've been ignored by a few.

I only know who two are, but a few months ago several of us asked an SOH employee in a poll & he told us... I believe just under 15 people have me on Ignore.

At least two users that I'm aware of have me on ignore right now. There have been others in the past.

I'm beyond shocked to hear you got ignored. You seem to be always strong with your opinions but never rude.

Thanks, and I really do try not to be rude.

People use the ignore button for various reasons, though. I have a pretty good idea what happened in one current case, and utterly no clue in the other. I try not to second guess why someone does it (ever, not just in regard to myself), because I've had people state in a poll why *I* put a couple of users on ignore, and they were totally wrong. It was pretty hurtful to hear that discussion, and that's one of the reasons why I simply don't use the feature any more. Although there are days when I think I really should, for my own peace of mind.

Make that at least 3; I just bumped into another one. At least this one explained - it's because I'm so "self righteous." Looks like it was one of those times when I disagreed about how despicable someone was because the facts I found don't support the statement made about the person, regardless of the fact that I find him despicable for other reasons. I didn't see it until just now, a month later, because when the user ignored me their comment became invisible to me. I only found it when looking at a poll on the web.

At least once. He replied just before ignoring me too. I guess that's how you win internet debates :p

2 people at least. One was not happy I called him out on some sexist bullshit, another I have no clue why. We got along pretty well for several years, I don't think ever argued but whatever.

I think a few anti-choicers have ignored me. My jokes about abortion are a little too graphic for them, I suppose.

I know that at least 2 people have blocked me. I don't know who.

The only reason I know is that I saw a thread with 10 comments posted. However, I only count 9 or less posts. If it wasn't for that, I would have never known I was blocked.

The one Jew with the Russia flag, Shazam, the one Texan cuck, Citethesource are some of the examples I can think of right now.

lol, what'd you do to make Shazam mad?

You mean LostTexan? Lmao.. he doesn't seem like much of a Texan anymore..

Citethesource blocks everyone who disagrees with him, and I think that's hilarious. He even made

Shazam dosen't like that I support Trump, and I did act kinda stupid in his polls, Lost Texan got upset when me and Chimama debated the Holocaust and the refugee situation with him. The Russian Jew is the one guy with a Russia flag with a Jewish star.

Xemanis Lawful Good
04/10/16 1:18 pm

I've seen the Russian Jew around a bit, I know who it is, just not the name.
LostTexan is a liberal, so that kinda makes sense.

Shazam.. well, that's a stupid reason to block someone, lol.

See how many comments are in a poll and count to see if they reconcile. If there are less, there is a good chance you are blocked.

I wouldn't do that much work. It is easier to see when the number of comments is less than 5.

Or if it looks like someone is talking to themselves. Go check the same comment thread on the Web version of SOH where blocking doesn't work to double check.
