Recently we have had an increasing number of complaints regarding the circumventing of the Ignore/Block feature on this site. These complaints are occurring primarily in the Stern Forum and Politics. We are changing policy to institute a minimum five day ban for any poster that circumvents the Block feature to interact with a member that has them Blocked. This includes posting in a thread they start, repping them positively or negatively or responding to an "unknown member" post. The policy starts now and does not cover any past occurrences.
