Simple as. Like Cee Cee says the internet gives you that option why not use it?

    Beat, I don't understand how it harms you in any way. But, yeah, if someone's updates continually annoy you, then probably best to block them in some way.

    What is an example of an "uppity religious status?"

    I had a relative who got enraged when I did this, they sent me a jeering email that said "Well at least my Dad is still alive" (I had lost my father the previous year) and quit speaking to me. This internet chain letter stuff is apparently SERIOUS business.

    I never understand why family or close friends send political or religious stuff via chain letter when they know you don't share their beliefs. I don't understand forcing your beliefs in a situation like this.

    I don't see the need for Facebook. I used to do Myspace but I drifted away.

    Interesting thing about this that that's what most people say until they discover I was refusing to support homosexual weddings.

    From your phrasing, I had a feeling that that was your viewpoint. It doesn't matter. You shouldn't have to put up with that crap regardless of what the specific views under question were, and it's intellectually dishonest for anyone to believe that it's okay to harass you into supporting a cause only when the cause is agreeable to them.

    Yeah, I'd defriend people like that instantly. More than that, even. I'd probably be tempted to kick them in the balls next time I saw them in person, too.

    I was a little surprised and initially thought they were playing a bit of a game, it was more about demonstrating their verve and how adament they were, which I've experienced and seen before on a lot of different "campaign trails" and used to behave like myself when I was about 19 or 20.

    I was willing to pardon that even but there was associated skirmisching on other forums and a real effort not to permit indifference, let alone disagreement. That sort of thing really bugs me so I felt, well, you dont like my opinion so much you'll not be troubled by it and delisted and blocked them. If I'd have been that vexed by their opinions I'd had blocked them but then people are complicated and maybe it was weird retarded effort to build the relationship on their part.

    I got a thing about swearing, swearing and verbal aggression arent called for, generally they enter into things when all hope of argument or discussion has been given up on and someone is attempting to assert dominance over the exchange. Now maybe it could be that they run out of options or never learned any for dealing with the emotions that the exchange gives rise to but simply because its understandable doesnt make it any the more acceptable.

    This is in the main my blocking criteria for forums too, plus anyone who's a fan of Ayn Rand.
