In reply to please help...can i block a babblemailer????, posted by alesta on January 9, 2007, at 10:47:34
> Is there a mechanism in place currently to block an unwanted babblemailer?
No. Individuals posters can't be prevented from sending babblemail.
> I told a certain individual that i did not wish to babblemail with them, have not replied to any further babblemails, and they keep babblemailing me. They ask inappropriate intrusive questions, and it is becoming a nuisance. I think there should be some sort of capability set in place whereby we can "block" certain babblemailers...is there one now? i do not like being babblestalked. yes...i can just delete their babblemails...but i really would prefer to not have them appear in my inbox if possible.

The solution - and it's not much of a solution, but that's what it is - would be to request that the individual Do Not Post to you. Dr Bob would prefer that we work differences out amongst ourselves, and make a DNP as a last resort. You'd have to do that as a post here on the boards. The DNP covers posts, babblemails, and chat communication. To quote from the privacy section of the FAQ,
"If you receive an abusive email or babblemail from someone here, please forward it directly to me (with all its headers, if you know how to do that). FWIW, I can then block any Psycho-Babble or associated Yahoo Group registrations using that email address."
Hope this helps, Alesta.
