Any member that you are not comfortable with can be blocked. If you block another member they cannot:
Note: All previous messages and invites disappear automatically on the site.
To block a member on the website, here are 4 ways to initiate it:
Navigate to their profile, click on the 'About; tab (under the cover image in the center of the page). Then click on ‘Member Blocking’ and click on the ‘block’ button.
Click on the ‘Gear’ icon menu item in the header of any inner page (on the left). This opens the 'Privacy and Availability' settings menu. Click on the item that says ‘Stop someone from bothering me’. There you can type the name of the member you wish to block and eventually block them.
On any conversation in your messages page, there is a settings menu (identified by a ‘gear’ icon). There is a menu option for blocking the member in your conversation. This option is helpful in case someone messages you and upon receiving their message you wish to immediately block them.
Any invite email, friend email, or message email contains a prominent link to take action and block the member.
