Hello Fred. Regarding your first point, there are many reason for not receiving a reply or a prompt reply. I don't think we should assume that someone is being rude or has lost interest if we don't get a response. People come and go on this board. That is the nature of communication on message boards. Some posters seem to have a lot of time on their hands and spend hours here each day; others may stop by once or twice a week or less frequently.

As for your next point that I quoted above, I believe that blocked posters are still able to read the board, but they are not allowed to post. If you spend time composing a reply, blocked posters should still be able to read your message. Of course, if they're angry enough about the block, maybe they'll want to use the block as an opportunity to take a break from PB.
