Can't block peoplePage 1 of 1    
For the past couple of weeks now, when I block someone...they don't get blocked, and do not show up on my "Blocked" list..

I thought maybe I have too many blocked...maybe you are only allowed a certain number of blocks (silly, i know but..I had no other idea)..so I unblocked a few..the tried to block one of the ones that wouldn't block before.
Nope...still not working..

Can you help?

Thanks!

P.S. I am NOT using the mobile version..
I am using a desktop computer.

NO ONE has any ideas?

I have also sent a message to POF itself, twice, and got a "canned" reply, telling me how to block people.

I *know* how to block people...that isn't the problem..when I click "Block"..they are not blocked, and do not show up on my "Blocked" list.

Try adding yourself to your Blocked Users with the link below. You have to be signed into your POF Inbox for the link to work. Post back here and let me know what happens.

Oddly...that worked..

I attempted to block two guys today..ones who failed to keep up their end of the conversation, or were rude...
(so we don't have to do this agian in a few months when he forgets we already *did this*)

They didn't show up on my list... :-(

Also?
Up until a few weeks ago, when you blocked someone...they didn't show up as online on your Inbox..
("Contacts Online")

Now, in addition to not being blocked..they still show up there as well...

Try this link.

https://www.pof.com/blockedusers.aspx?friendusername=

When it appears in your address bar, add the name of a person you want to block after the equals sign and press the Enter key. See if that will add the person to your Blocked Users.

Maybe there's a limit to how many people you can block.
If I blocked everyone who "failed to keep up their end of the conversation", I might hit that limit too.

I've been prevented from posting here once too: http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts16734592.aspx

In order to maintain the highest quality forums you are restricted to having no more then 2 of the last 10 posts on a thread.
Since 2 of the last 10 posts are yours you can not post to this thread.


How did you get around that in this thread?

I have no idea...I wasn't aware of such a thing..

But...Regarding blocking....it's a bit more than reaching a "limit"..

Used to be..when you blocked someone..they showed up in your Blocked" list...and you also wouldn't see them when they are online (that part on your inbox that shows contacts online)..
Not only are they not onnmy list...they show up there whenever they are online.

I thought about maybe I had reached my limit of blocked guys (before you mentioned this)..so I deleted some..just to see.
Nope....made no difference..

I don't block just because they can't keep up a conversation (which *is* a good reason to "Bye Felicia" them)...
I block the ones who *I* never messaged, but they felt they had to write me and tell me why they didn't like my profile.
Some people must have a *lot* of free time.. :-(
