you can't see them on
any threads they participate in,
so then this has the effect of
blocking your view of other posts,

. if I visit the thread anonymously
I can see the entire post,
including his threads;
so he must have blocked me,
but since this isn't his thread,
I get to see posts of
just those who haven't blocked me .
. he blocked me specifically so I wouldn't
get the message and reply to him!
. here at plus topsy.com
I can see some of the other threads
in which I can view his posts
-- but only anonymously .
