I thought I had posted a response but probably hit the wrong button. I doubt I will post for a long time if ever after this post. I feel as if Babble is a fading memory of the past. My only concern is for others who come here hoping to be understood and be accepted. In my opinion the longer and longer blocks are not only punitive, they are abusive and do not serve any useful purpose. I do not want to be a part of what I consider abusive policies. Sorry, but it is what it is.
