While almost everyone on this site is WONDERFUL!! I have one member that keeps giving me migraines! Can I block this person so that they cannot request from me and I cannot request from them? We are both boxers and inevitably keep coming up in each other's search and no matter how hard I try - they ALWAYS back out of the deal! So can I just block them and not have to deal with them at all?

You can block them on forums.  But not on books.

For box of books, Melanie, simply decline her offers, and do not respond when it gives you the reply box. You don't HAVE to give her a reason especially if you've already done so in the past. You don't have to say anything other than "I'm not interested" if she writes and asks you why. If she gets abusive or harrassing because you won't start another box with her, you can write TPTB and they will warn her about them. If she does it again, they may give her a time out suspension to get her attention a little better. Not always, but it's an option that they have to get her to stop harrassing you. Hope that helps.
