Okay. I have a block list (yes, there are a few BGGers I don't care for, shock, horror).

Some of them occasionally have something decent to say, others not. The former I sometimes find myself asking "why did I block them?". And there's the point of the post - is there a way to note why someone on my block list is blocked? Just so I can remind myself what it was about them or their posts I found so objectionable that I decided not to see them any more.

Thanks.

You're not allowed to talk about who is on your block list, even to yourself.

Ooooh, this is like fight club. We could all get suspended just for posting in this thread.

But, no. There's not a way to do that. Try keeping your notes on something like Evernote.

You could probably do kind of a sloppy version of what you want via a private GeekList. Each GL entry could have the userid= tag to show their avatar and then you add your comments.

God help you, though, if you ever mistakenly make it public.

Perhaps when you block somebody, send a geekmail to yourself with their name in the subject line, and write down why it was you wanted to block 'em.

I figure, if I've got someone blocked and I can't remember why I originally blocked them, maybe I can unblock them. Having said that . . . hasn't happened yet.

Every once and awhile I look though my block list, and if I can't recall why I blocked them, then I unblock them. Usually I remember, so this has only happened once or twice. There was one user whose avatar bugged me, but they later changed it. I can't describe what it was since that might give away who the user was.
