I know I can remove people from the lists with the dead to me option, but is there a way to block certain people from messaging me or viewing my profile?

Why?? Seems like a lot of work for virtually no payoff.

Lol. I only want to block people I have no interest in who do not understand what "I am not interested in you; go away" means. I admit it's only one or two people out of everyone I've talked to, but it's still odd having someone still try to talk to me even after I clearly showed I wasn't into them. Plus, I'm kind of new to using the site so i don't know everything it can do and was curious.

Pretty sure you can block their messages (at the bottom of one of their messages), but don't think you can stop them from viewing you.

After all, they could always log out.

you can set your profile to keep non logged in users from being able to view you. Also, you can block people from posting on your journal with the "reject and block" link after their journal comment. of course, they can still look at you. but you don't have to interact with them.

Yea, what panda said. But it's kind of a waste of time, because every moron on here has like 6 fake profiles they use to get around the blocks. Like, panda, for instance, is a fake profile of a regular user.

You can block them from messaging you or iming you on ok cupid, but there is no way to keep them from viewing your profile.

Unfortunately, there are some (not too many) hostile people on OKC. I can totally understand why you would want to block people. There should be a simple little checkbox next to each listing of stalkers that lets you keep away people you're not comfortable with.

There are two ways to block people that I know of.
At the end of any email......
"Do you dislike this person? Block them "
click that and they can't send you email

There is a separate block in the IM. In the IM window beside the user's picture is an square icon with a circle and a slash.
Click that and the user can't IM you

I believe these are independent of each other.

I totally wish I could block people from being able to view my profile. Seriously, there's this creepy dude who views mine EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I don't know if the "Dead to Me" on their actual profile page would actually block them from viewing you.  Also probably not a good idea, because they would know you went to their profile.

Yuck. Good luck.  I used to have this notion of appealing to people's rationalities (i.e. sending a message saying "I am not interested in you, please stop stalking me"), but I am so much more realistic and realize that the internet brings out the true sociopathic elements in human beings :-(

ive had problems with blocking IMs. It doesn't seem to work... and if they haven't emailed, then you can't block them that way.

You don't have to view a profile to "Dead" someone,you can update your Deads list from the Matches menu.

I avoid anyone who asks me to leave her alone,forever,but some people I periodically restalk to keep them in my Recently Viewed list,nothing deeper than that.
