People don't bother me enough to block them, unless they comment snidely on my poems, then that's it. We're done.
As many times as Sky personally attacked me, we never had each other blocked because we innately knew that respect for poetry was our common ground. I can respect any member's presence and have the strength to simply overlook them; or, for the most part, see their behaviour for what it truly is ( pain, spite, et al ). We all evolve in our own way, and it helps to see that process as it truly is vs becoming entangled or taking things personally.
But, once they step foot on my turf with their drama, they're blocked. However, I can wholly see ( and I support ) why other members may want to just obliterate them from their sight. Fighting sociopaths, narcissits, drama queens/kings, and trolls is not for the faint of heart!
