I always forget that people can get blocked on this site and always respond as though I'm not. Now, people usually respond (making me think no one blocks me), but it would be nice to know that if someone has you blocked that there is no reason to respond to them in a given thread. Maybe there's ramifications I'm not aware with this, but it would definitely help things along.

On a similar note, if you have someone blocked, can they post in your threads? Seems kind of odd if they can, but I can also see that being hard to implement.

Being able to see who has blocked you feels against the overall point of the system. Granted, blocks are trivially circumvented regardless, but outright knowing X person has blocked you, and determining X person has blocked you over time, are different things; the former serves as a clear cue to many people you'd rightfully block that they should try to circumvent the block.

You cannot post in a thread if its creator is blocking you

Is there a way to circumvent the block?

Depends on the board you're using, but on game boards logging out is sufficient to see any user's posts. Failing that, you can just an alt account.

I'm not sure how to determine if someone is blocking me. Twice now I've assumed one user was blocking me, only for him to respond to one of my posts later on.

Ah, I meant for posting, but that makes sense.

Is that not permaban worthy on this site? I'm on a few different forums and the rules sometimes bleed together in my head.

It's usually a guess and check sort of thing, but if you start seeing posts consistently missing in threads for some reason, it serves as a potential hint.

Nope. The site doesn't care if you use alts, so long as you don't break the rules.

Oh, maybe I missed that before, if someone is blocking me I can't see their posts? If that's true then the problem is actually already solved.

Good to know, thanks.
