I don't think that function is available but I have done quite well with a "simple ignore".   On ActiveRain and more importantly, in real life.

They do not have it. I've had to write that particular person to never view or comment on my site.

It might be time for that feature but for spammers I'm sure there's a better way.

You do not have to be a follower to be able to view someone else's blog so that may not be helpful. Over the years, I found out about many people who were checking in on my blog regularly but weren't "official followers". Some of them were agents in my market place trying to figure out how to make socal media work for them.

I don't think this feature is offered. I seem to remember reading a comment that Bob Stewart made about the need for it and that it's not likely to be something we would ever be able to do. I think it would be useful.

It would be nice to have a block feature. The good thing it is rare but i have had those that have nothing good to say and one even not wanting to share when asked, a great idea that everyone could have benefited from.

I can see doing that as a "statement", but the way AR is set up, ANYONE can look at our blogs, unlike Facebook where you have choices who can see what.

Let me check other answers.

And it's okay if someone follows me!

I've never had anybody be mean that was following me. Actually, I can't remember anybody being mean that doesn't. Having said that, might be useful if we could unplug people if we needed to. I would be more in favor of just having a mute button. Till then, I just unplug myself. LOL
