I love all the members on C2 who claim they are for civil liberties and then they block you because you disagree with them. This clearly blows their cover as agent provacateurs on Care2

Well, I don't know about agent provacateurs, but some definitely do have a problem with the concept of freedom of speech.

I actually do not agree with either of you 90 percent of the time ....but i do not block people and i think that the problem you bring up BINKY IS one of the biggest problems in care2 so i am noting.......

i would only consider blocking if i was attacked and then i would only consider it ...

I've never blocked and never will....does seem wrong. I've actually never even contemplated it. I do enjoy this particular community more than others.

There are people on C2N who do not want to hear anything that does not match their opinion. Whether they block people from sending private messages ot use some power granted by C2N as group moderators to ban anyone who does not fully accept their ideas.
One of my pet peeves on C2N is people who try to pass off their blog sites as NEWS and I call them on it every chance I get. I would bet that these are the same people who are blocking or banning everyone who doesn't 100% agree with them

I know that at least one comment here is directed at me. I feel, that when it comes to abusive personal messages (the ones not published in the Pulse Polls) it is my right to block such a person from contacting me personally in the future. If I do not wish to be bombarded with nonsense and abuse - then blocking that person from doing so in future is my prerogative.This I did on the advice of care2 when I lost my temper with someone and my poll reply was flagged. I have just now learnt that I can actually just click to NOT recieve personal messages or notifications on any given subject without using the BLOCK. One lives and learns

Personally I think it is anyones right to block someone from sending them hateful personal email .However I don't think blocking someone who has not made a personal attack on you is right !

I would never 'block' anyone as I believe in free speech, and also as I think I am secure enough in my own beliefs that I would not feel under attack by someone who disagreed with me, no matter how aggressive they sounded.
I like a lively debte, and think those who do treat others agressively and rudely only show up their own weaknesses and insecurities.

With love and blessings

That is all well and good - but when one receives abusive personal messages which sail close to the wind of verbal Seniors' abuse (we have a law against that) and do NOT stick to the issue in question or ignore the TOTAL content of the post, then I reserve the right to block such a person from contacting me personally ever again. This has happened to me and unfortunately some others have been caught in that net before I learnt about the other way of not receiving any further communication on that subject. I do not appologise for my decision to block a few people from personally contacting me.
