Heart Starting community participation threads - blocked members

I have participated in Bizi's diet thread both last year and this year. Bizi started a "New" 2017 Diet Thread in January of this year, where many of us have also participated.

Another member has started another new community diet thread. I have tried to participate, yet am blocked from participating. I get a message, stating I am on the OP's "ignore list" and cannot reply to the thread.

It's very unfair to start a community participation thread and have any community member blocked from participating.

Why in the world would anyone block you? You're one of the kindest, wisest ones here.

The "ignore" option exists for a reason.

It's unfair to re-start/start a community-oriented participation thread and to block specific members (any member) from participating.

"You are on this users ignore list and therefore cannot reply to this thread." (not saying it's unfair to me in general)

Are there two different "ignore" options or what do you mean?

Honestly, the blocking feature needs to be completely revamped here.

For example, if you have somebody blocked, than they should make it to where you cannot see the threads and posts of the person you block at all because many people might find it triggering to see threads and posts from people who they have blocked. I'm not referring to how it is now where you see that somebody made a post but it says that the message is hidden because you have the member blocked; I mean there should be no visible traces of their posts at all to you if you have another member blocked.

I also think that you should have every right to participate in a thread created by a person who has you blocked. If the change I suggested above was implemented, than this wouldn't be an issue.

I love this site to death but I think that a lot of this website's features are stuck in the dialup/DSL beige box computer days.

Icare dixit,

The member has re-started a community participation thread.

When I attempt to participate in the community-oriented thread, I get a message telling me I cannot respond to the thread because I am on the OP's "ignore list."

My points are:

1) We already have a "diet thread" where all have been welcomed.
2) It's unfair to re-start/start a community participation thread when blocking ANY member.

I wonder whether people realise they prevent people on this list to post. It makes no sense. They could have the post be ignored while allowing others to see it.

The problem is making people aware of this when you're being ignored.

Yes!

I hope this thread increases awareness and resolves the issue for anyone in the same position.

A long time ago a PC member blocked me. I was really hurt, as I had absolutely no knowledge of why that member blocked me. I finally decided that there has been some kind of misunderstanding and tried not to fret about the situation.

Here's the real kicker:

if someone blocks YOU, they can post in YOUR threads, but you can't post in THEIRS. Have had it happen to me before. Can confirm.

Also, they can PM you, but you can't PM them. Can confirm also.

BASS ACKWARDS

I wish the ignore feature was more like Facebook's, where you can't see them and they can't see you. That, to me, makes much more sense.

I don't bother with the ignore feature. Never used it. I'm sure people have their reasons for using it, though.
