      I’ve seen on some sites where you have the option to ‘Block’ people who you do not desire contact to/from..Is there a possibility that this can be considered? I personally do not wish to be contacted by some that I do not care for.

      Thanks

        • Needless to say, forgive me to say, sometimes others are put in our path so we may learn and grow from each other.  I can sure understand positive begets positive and negative begets negative.  I think we have a majority of positive thinkers here and I am sure the whole herd of goodness will always overcome evil activities.  We all have one goal in common - to live this life to its fullness.

          Id say unless your being harrassed, by someone I wouldnt recomend blocking... Just read and ignore.

          Chinadoll, Im always amazed at such wisdom.  Very Good.

        • sometimes reading greeneyedlady puts things into your spirit that need not be there...You might not intend on reading..but one word..one sentence can sometimes be enough for the enemy to start doing it’s work...this in fact is different for everyone...I can only speak for self here...and ultimately..I have to protect self...With that said...I still stand with my request to have the option of blocking anyone I choose...If it is not an option...well I will deal with that accordingly...

        • i agree with everyone.. lol for me, i do not need negotive energy in my life, life can be negative enough..i pray more because of the negotive ( praying is good! :) )

          there is always the delete button if you are contacted by someone you would rather not be contacted by.. delete before reading..  

          for me, i just dont read blogs that don’t sit well when i read the blog title..

          you are all wise women, and i amd blessed by each of you daily.. thank you for WHO you are my friends!

          Blessings

        • It is really sad to see how all this political crap has caused such disharmony where there was only camaraderie a week or so ago..It is really sad..I for one have refused to read any blogs or posts I feel are not of interest to me..The same way I did prior to the whole political blow up..Man I'll tell you one thing...Look at the harm and discord just talking about the issue has caused..Just think of how much discord, hatefulness and back biting will go on regardless of who wins..It is just too bad...Myself..I am gonna go vote Tuesday... and..I will go on just as I did every day before the election..What the future will bring is not up to me after Tuesday..I will have done my part to support who I thought was the better candidate..What happens on Wednesday and for the next 4 yrs. Is out of my hands...As for blocking people I see no point in it unless someone is being harassed..I play on line video games and we have that option on the game..The only time I have used it was when someone was spamming me or just being childish and annoying..Other than that I just didn't read the scrolling conversation...I also understand someone could be a little more sensitive about things that mean nothing more to me than it did when it was discussed..So I understand about the whole blocking people..Like I always say..What Ever Gets You Through Your Life...I tell my children this when you make a choice in your life be sure it is something you can lay down at night and live with...

        • I agree with you Jackie..I would hope that if you asked someone not to contact you then they should respect that..I know I would have no problem not contacting someone that didn't want to communicate with me any longer..I always make it a point. I do not want to be where I am not wanted..It’s a big world and there are always more friends to make..There is no way we can all agree on issues. So there will be times that we turn the page and move on..Good post Jackie
          Jesus Girl..That's terrible that you were harassed like that..Gezzzzzz

        • Hi Ladies—
          Happy Weekend. As far as blocking, it sure would be great to just have that “tool” in our every day lives. Truth is, though, that we‘re all so different and this is “real” life, so we can’t just turn life on and off...as much as we’d like to.

          My suggestion is if you read something that doesn’t appeal to you or makes you upset, don’t comment or post. Sounds a little limiting, but why get your feathers up if it’s just going to end up in an internet war of words?

          Life is short...focus on what makes you happy. Enough stress in daily life...try to avoid stressors and stay positive!

        • I think we should stay in a discussion as long as we aren’t demeaning the people we don’t agree with! We all have opinions....so if we can keep it at a grown up level and understand that we‘re all different, then we‘re good!

        • Annie,

          You are one of the most educated  minds on this site. One can easily tell that from the subject matter you post. Stupid, not thinking...  NOT!!!

          I have learned alot from you. Keep posting. I am still trying to find out more about the post you started about King David and the new artifacts discovered. I love reading about him. I have many books about him.

        • nycmom..thank you for understanding where I was coming from..I thought this forum was for SUGGESTIONS and that was my SUGGESTION...I think it would be cool to have that option, that’s all I’m saying...Nothing to debate about..It’s just MY SUGGESTION..is all..Now if it is not something that the powers that be like, then I’m okay with that too...

          You all have said some things that I would be happy to consider however...But my point was exactly what nycmom mentioned..(She understands my reasons for asking about this...((hugs)) nycmom)...It’s not about the particular posting, but about the negativity that some portray on an otherwise postive, or well meaning blog...and I’m not sure that after the elections it’s gonna change..I think as mslorid said..“With That said, I readily acknowledge there are those people who are born angry and negative and nothing will ever change them.  It is often too tiresome or just not worth the effort to try and help them” and it’s those few that I don’t need the negative energy from...

          Thanks you guys for your input...like I said it was just a suggestion...Sorry if I stepped on any toes by it...

        • I think if I were the webmaster, I would highly appreciate those who make any kind of suggestions or comments for the sake of this site.  I would then evaluate the need and want as well as its popularity before I go forth to put on my task list.  That’s how I would do it if it were me.

        • Feedback really helps with any site. I was a webmaster on a site that was full of nasty comments making these look quite mild...it was a full time job trying to figure out who to side with. It’s not easy being the go-between as I am a very opinionated woman. However, I do realize that my health and happiness depends on just letting a lot of my opinions just be spoken a little softer to save from all sorts of verbal war. I’ve learned great restraint as I’ve turned the big 45. I have plenty to say and it’s not always what people want to hear, but I try to choose my words carefully. A lot can be MIS-read when it’s typed and not spoken. I wonder how these conversations would go if we all were in a room discussing it live? Probably better!! My handsome half and I have a rule we abide by: If we have something that is really controversial or emotional to discuss, we do it in person or at least on the phone. We rarely email unless it’s a quick “How’s your day?“. Emotions get really misconstrued via email, text and posting on forums. Can’t avoid it these days, but we must re-read what we are writing before hitting the “enter” button. Words aremisconstrued and sometimes we say things we might not say in person.

          I think it’s a learning process for all of us.

        • You guys are probably thinking I’m ignoring all of your posts, the truth is, I just stumbled on it.

          So here is the answer.

          In order to private message anyone on the site you need to be their friend.

          Everyone has the ability to delete any of their current friends, so what does that tell you??

          remember what your mama said
          BE NICE TO EACH OTHER,  

          LOL

          As for posts, since your blog is up for public display anyone can participate and comment, even the people you no longer like.  :(

          We are working on implementing private groups, once that’s done you can have your own private group and have only the people you want to participate be a part of it.

          Hope this explains it,  

          Yana
