    I get sick of people annoying me to invest in their idea, or hire them and whatever other proposal they have. I block them on Skype, but how do I block them via PMs? I see there is an "ignore" button on profiles. Is that the same as block?

    I'm not sure if the ignore option also blocks messages from that specific user. If you want, we can test it out by having you block me (or vice versa) for an hour and then whichever one of us is blocked can try sending a PM.

    image.png Hit the ignore button when you click someone's profile. I think that stops it

    Just listen to their ideas, keep them if they have gold (I doubt it though ;)), and then dump the rest. Nothing wrong if you do so.

    Okay, I'm gonna block you for now. Try to send me a PM. Shoot me a message on the contact form on my site (link at top right of this post) and I'll unblock you.

    Nah, ideas are useless. I have more than enough unexecuted 6 and 7 figure ideas, as does everyone. Execution is key.

    Okay, it looks like your posts disappear from my thread if I block you. I can't see quotes or posts by you.

    All right, I sent the PM and I messaged you through your contact form about it (since you probably can't see this message yet :p).

    @Zwielicht Took me a while to figure out how to unblock you, because I could no longer click on your profile, because it was gone from everywhere lol.

    Okay, yeah, so I didn't get the PM, even when I unblocked you, it never came through. Your posts were, hidden, everything, gone.

    Perfect, thanks.

    Isn't that complete blocking a little overstretch. You may lose out on some discussions as few posts might be missing from your threads.
