      No and that is not the question to ask. i was polite with someone who I did not want further conversation with. So I asked him to no longer comment on MY post. he is refusing. So I am trying to find out if I can block him since he will not. I do not comment on his post and I know he would not like it if I did especially If he asked me to not to comment on his posts. Being good citizens of Galt's Gulch would seem to be a good community standard. Don't you think? Or is this a screw you community I will do what I darn well please, like it or not??

        If you don't want further conversation with someone -- don't say anything further. Do not request the ability to censor your fellow man.

        You can mark the comment down, as has been done to your comment. But I don't even like to do that. I've probably marked two comments down in the last few years -- both for being abusive insult.

        I did not mark your comment down, although I strongly disagree with it.

        By the way i listened to quite a bit of his comments on my post. He and I just do not see things the same way. I came here to have a good exchange of thoughts and learn from each other. I do not want to have fights because someone cant honor a request.

          FUQ censorship. Put your big boy pants on and be comfortable with your convictions. The only way to understand a persons character is to let them show you what’s good and of value or bad.
          You can’t have it both ways , Where you can express your thoughts or opinion and ban the opposition to it. Please get real.

            If what you say is true then I could seek out some of your posts and just go to town making comments and you would be ok with that? Don't worry, I am not going to do that but just think about what you said and HOW you said it (big boy pants... REALLY???) and think about my response. I think it's safe to say I wont be asking you for any advice.

    You say you didn't want to have further conversation, so just STOP. Your best bet is to ignore the comment. If you get into a back-an-forth argument, it never ends.

      This is true and good advise, however this person is interfering with my post. I have tried hiding his comments but I found it doesn't hide them from all. So this is why I was hoping to find a way to block him completely. Thank you though and you have given some good advise.

          Are you saying this isn't a "Safe Place"

            NO this is not a safe space. If people disagree with you, they will say so, even if it hurts your feelings.

            I have been corrected here in the gulch more times than I care to count. I'm not an "expert" Objectivist like some here, so I try to learn. I may not agree with everything posted here, but I rarely get offended by it. Certainly not to the point of feeling 'unsafe'.

              I was never hurt or had my feeling hurt, I can accept others who feel or think differently than I do, I have been around and lived in a lot of places. THAT is NOT the issue. what is the issue is that each of us who create a post should be able to have some control of the content and direction of the conversation. That is ALL I am looking to do. I asked politely for someone to no longer comment on my post because their comments did not line up with what I intended the post to be. If you asked me not comment on your I would submit to your request because I respect others. This person apparently does not respect others. This is where the problem lies.

    You put up a post, surely, for the purpose of getting comments, not just approval. Before hitting enter, you should have done some thinking about the subject, the obvious attacks and their rebuttals.

    If you get a bad comment, respond with an answer, technical comments with more detail if you can. Rudeness deserves a rude reply, or ignore, according to your own standpoint.

    "He and I just do not see things the same way."
    Yeah, this happens. So stand back from a quick reply and explain why you think differently.

      I am not looking for comments neither do I need attention, or approval and I do not repay rudeness with rudeness. I find it amazing this is the advice you have for me. Thank you for your comment.

    Oh, dear, I'll start the apologies. When I respond to a Post, most of the time I don't even notice who is posting. Sometimes I don't put my brain in gear before I do it. I hope I'm not the one who hurt you. Welcome to the Gulch.

      I am a writer. I like people. My copy of 'The Constitution of the United States" by Thomas J. Norton (Printings without interruption from 1941 - 1969) sits on my computer table. I despise the way those fools in Washington spit on it. Hopefully they will wake up before it's too late.

        My friends are all jealous because I won't tell them what my website is. Everyone I have come into contact with is helpful (I am allowed to ask questions) and they give me great answers. They quickly advise me if I am wrong and I appreciate that. Hang in there. You will see what I am talking about. They will point you in the right direction.

      well that sucks. I served my country and to protect teh US Constitution, freedom of speech and all the rights afforded to us as Americans. So In that respect I can not do anything against anyone who has something to say. If I do then I am going against my own belief in the Freedoms and rights we have as Americans. If there is any thing i can impress on anyone who reads my comments would be, We are given a Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights. After considering those right a person has to conclude that with each Right that we are given includes a "Responsibility" Yes we have the right to say anything we please and to anyone. However should we say it? In my post (I started the post so I claim it as mine) I read quite a few of his comments and had a really hard time following his thoughts. So I decided his comments on MY post I decided where more disruptive than informative (its about the vaccine) and in a nice way I asked him to stop commenting on my post. Had it been his post and he had asked me to stop commenting I would have honored his request. Only he as so much told me he would not talk to me but continue to comment to others on my post. This became another reason why IO felt he should be blocked from my post. He has no self honor. I hope this explains better my reasoning.

      So here is a question for you. you say above that Galt's Gulch is an Open Forum. Yet on my other post you wrote this Quote "From the Galt's Gulch Code of Conduct: "[Please DO NOT] Proselytize your religion or advocate faith. Inquiry, yes. Advocate, no.*

      Please refer to the Galt's Gulch Code of Conduct here: https://www.galtsgulchonline.com/faq#... and please refrain from any further proselytizing." If Galt's Gulch an open forum then I should be able to (as you call it) proselytizing. But if you can't Proselytize then Galt's Gulch is NOT an open Forum. So which is it?
