How to block someone here, unfollow doesn't work at all!

    How to block someone here, unfollow doesn't work at all!

    Is there a way to block other hubbers since I'm constantly getting updates from an annoying member that I'm not following anymore?

    You can't block someone, unfortunately but you can adjust your notification settings by adjusting your status updates. On your homepage/feed click on filters. Where it says filter by types click edit. You will see a list of check boxes, just tick the ones which apply to you. That should stop you from getting notified in your feed. If you stop following someone you should not be getting emails from their activities. Double check to make sure you are not still following them.

    You can also adjust you email notifications by going to your account/following and adjust the settings for each item on the list. You may have commented on a hub of the person before you stop following but is till getting notified. In the hubs you follow section you will see a list of the hubs you follow just click unflollow for the ones you no longer which to follow.

    Change your settings in your profile. In addition to unfollowing, you may have updates coming from questions, forums, answers to your questions, change your settings to getting updates from only those you follow.

    Yeah like other folks have said, changing your settings should fix that. I also wish it would be possible to block people, but it is not. There isn't anyone specific that I want to block, but it would still be a good option to have.
