    Yes my blocking list is so long I can't find the name of the guy I'm trying to unblock! haha! I blocked him yesterday. Is it instantaneous? I thought he was trying to do something underhanded when he actually hadn't seen my email (he said). You asked above how long is the list so I am responding and also is there a way to make the blocked list show up in alphabetical order so it's easier to find people? I had the same problem before (not seeing the name) but I just found her today so she's unblocked and probably mad as hell at me! It's been like 2 months! haha!
