How to Block Someone on LinkedIn
LinkedIn has at last added a long-requested feature with the introduction of member blocking. This adds a new privacy control to the service, which lets you restrict access to your profile, direct interactions, and network activity from any other logged-in member who you don’t want to interact with on LinkedIn.
The company says that it introduced the option not only because of user feedback, but also because “it was the right thing to do.”
While many of us will be grateful for the addition because it means we’ll now have a simple tool to block spammers who clutter our LinkedIn inbox with annoying requests and messages, blocking also has more serious safety and privacy implications, too – such as in the case of users who are victims of stalking or domestic violence, for example.
In an announcement about the change, LinkedIn also noted it has a variety of other tools for users interested in better protecting their privacy, including tools to disconnect from existing connections, tools to control your activity broadcasts, plus profile and photo visibility settings.
LinkedIn suggests that before you block a member, you turn on “anonymous profile viewing” in your settings, so that – should you change your mind, close your browser, have a technical issue, etc. – you won’t leave your name in the “Who’s Viewed Your Profile” section of the would-be-blocked user’s account.
The new blocking feature is available on the drop-down box on a user’s profile, next to the “Send InMail” button. It’s now the last item on the list, which reads “Block or report.”
After a user is blocked, you won’t be able to access each other’s profiles, message each other, and if you had been connected before blocking, you won’t be anymore. Any endorsements and recommendations from that member will also be removed from your profile, and neither user will ever be recommended to the other again in the “People You May Know” or “People also Viewed” sections of LinkedIn.
As someone who has mistakenly been perhaps a little too generous in responding to connection requests in years past, the blocking feature is a welcome change. Now, all those “maximize your SEO!” and “buy my stuff!” emails I receive can be met with a swift response.

How to Block Emails from Your Psycho “Ex” in Your Gmail Account
Raise your hand if you have an ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend that just won’t stop bugging you… Sure, you’ve changed your phone number and moved 3,000 miles away, but changing your email is out of the question! Today we’ll learn how to auto-delete their psychotic emails from your Gmail account.
Rather than a “Block” button like many email clients have, Gmail has a powerful “Filter” feature which you can use for all sorts of purposes, but for today’s lesson we’ll use a filter to automatically delete messages from a specific (and likely obnoxious) person.
Filtering Emails in Gmail
If you are reading one of the emails from the extremely annoying person you wish you had never met, you can click the arrow next to the Reply button and choose “Filter messages like this” (being very careful not to accidentally reply with @!#$$% and open up a whole other can of worms)
Otherwise you can click the “Create a filter” link right next to the search boxes up near the top of the page…
If you chose “Filter messages like this” the From box will automatically be populated with the person’s email address, though you can write in their email address, or even their name. I’d go with the email address, and then click the “Next Step” button.
On this screen, you can click the “Mark as read” checkbox, and then click on the “Delete it” checkbox. This will send their messages automatically to the trash can.
Clicking the “Create Filter” button will make this filter active, and you’ll find it listed under Settings \ Filters in case you want to edit or delete it.
You’ll notice that the message isn’t permanently deleted.
Block or unblock a sender

Outlook adds the sender’s e-mail address to the blocked senders list.
NOTE: You can restore any of the mail that is in the Junk E-mail folder. Click the message that you want to move to the Inbox folder, and then on the Home tab, click Junk, and then click Mark as Not Junk.
Unblock a sender
- On the Tools menu, click Junk E-mail Protection.
- On the Blocked Senders tab, in the Blocked Senders text box, select the e-mail address or domain that you want to unblock, and then press the Delete key.
If you want to stop receiving e-mail from someone, you can add his or her e-mail address to your blocked senders list. Outlook automatically moves any new mail that you receive from this person to the Junk E-mail folder. When you want to receive mail from this person again, you can remove his or her e-mail address or domain from your blocked senders list.
