    Hi David, I see you've met Daveny5 then.

    The block button can be found on everyone's posts - if you click on it, every post the person makes is hidden from the thread. The posts aren't hidden for everyone else, just the person who does the blocking.



    I think he feels your 'name' is racist - that's why he's blocking you.

    You are exactly right, and after he "blocked" me he still kept answering my post.
    thanks alot i thoght the name was funny when I was called whitefolks, white boy dave. I personally wouldnt call a black or brown or whatever person black boy fred or brownfolks. I think there is a big difference. I explained to them that I went to Norfolk State University wich is a black university me being one of the very few whitefolks in the school people referred to me as that white guy, or whiteboy dave, or my wife and i as white folks. I really hope I dont offend anyone. it never has before and I play with black musicians, and I used to only play with black musicians at school since i played rap, r&b, funk, reggae

    If black people call you 'white folks' its ok - no-one is offended, not even you. But call yourself 'white folks' and you get all sorts of white people getting offended on behalf of the black comunity that arn't offended in the first place. Odd world we live in.

    I think Dave's probably blocked about 75% of the forum members by now actually. Must make for rather disjointed thread-reading...

    I think I'll block him now so that I won't be totally gutted by reading that he's blocked me.

    Jeff, you realize there are 2 Steve wrights.. the famous one from the radio.. and the bloke who is infamous for doing something well .. nasty

    Dey is a hole lot o folks dat tink dat blockin someone gib dem da powa to control dat person on da internet. It cause dey slightly imbalanced in dey head. De might be genius at sum tings but it be obvious ta me dat it easier to just ignore dem when dey off on a mental holiday. Dey block yu so yu can't answer dem but dey can still answer yu. Now dats pwr ehh?
    Just ignore them.

    Just describe it as the 'London Calling' sleeve art in Steve's favourite Cerise colour.

    I have Mr Simonon in the original Black & White, blue, green and a nauseous yellow, which I've since deleted.

    I'm trying the green one to see if your link changes Marah.

    I may post all my avatars in this thread - we could have a poll to see which one I should use each week - and you thought I was sad

    For me it was the "also i prefer WHite Folks " b*****it that was offensive.

    Slug, I think you may have read that the wrong way - I think he meant to say he prefers the name 'White Folks' to other names he's been called, not that he 'prefers white folks'.

    I was referred to as white boy dave also i prefer WHite Folks


    Unfortunately I think he missed out a comma -

    I was referred to as white boy dave also, i prefer WHite Folks


    If it was me I'd just sign back in with a less controversial name and save all the hassle.

    The block feature is great, IMHO.
    However, some people like to use it as a forum weapon, like when someone actually bothers to tell you they're blocking you.
    When the feature was first added, there were gobs of "I'm blocking you" posts in emotional threads.

    That's funny.

    Just block the noise and be done with it (and there's never a shortage of noise on internet forums, is there?).

    I bet the block feature has never actually been used. It's just a bunch of people saying "I'm blocking you"
    Well I've got you all beat. As of this moment, I'm blocking myself. Nyah.

    *edit* Damn, it won't let me do that. Oh well, don't tell Spaceduck. He thinks he's blocked.

    I know it was a gift John, but it did say in the small print 'no blocking' of Strummy allowed

    BTW, you finally wore me down - notice the S8SE in my sig John! Great bit of kit though.

    Does anyone really care? I mean, I've been here for years and have yet to see him provide anything useful in his snappy, arrogant, and usually way off-base remarks.
