Hi, is there a way to block a particular user from reading my posts?

Of course there isn't.

If you are worried about being stalked you could ask MNet HQ to delete some or all of your posts but everything you've posted is on a public website. You can't restrict who sees it.

Not until you are Mistress of the Internet and can create your own totalitarian regime. It's easier to namechange and hide that way.

And they could just log out and view it without signing in. You don't have to be a member to view posts.

Maybe you could delete your account and join with a new name so she won't know who you are and can't follow you anymore?

How would she know who you are? I wouldn't worry unnecessarily smile

Blimey. Imagine the furor if that was a suggested feature, just based on wanting a Hide a Poster one!

it's simple, if you don't want people to read your personal posts then don't publish your personal life on the internet. hmm

Anyone can read your posts.

They don't have to be a member.

They can search and find on Google.

This is an open forum.

Hello there
Yes, what Trills says is correct.
Do get in touch if there's anything with which we can help

Imagine the PAs that would be possible, as you read..

- YABU to eat grapes before checkout, it's theft.
- YANBU, bubba is hungry!
- You are unable to see this poster's response, as they think you're a wankbadger. So you'll never know. Mwa-ha-ha.
- YABU, greedy or what?
