1. And that one post doesn't have to be made in the group one gets blocked from.

A few DUers got blocked from a group, not for what they posted in that group, but for what they posted outside the group.

2. Yeah, but what about Meta?

I thought "what happens in Meta, stays in Meta"

4. information about groups:

Groups:

Groups can be created by either the DU Administrators, or by regular DU members.
Groups sometimes serve as safe havens for members who share similar viewpoints or interests.
Members may subscribe to groups, and have them listed on their "My Subscriptions" page.
Members may be blocked from a group by its hosts, or by the DU Administrators if no hosts are assigned.
Blocked members may not post in a group or subscribe to that group -- but they are able to alert abuse in that group. Only members who have posted in a particular group may be blocked from that group.

5. What you qoute is of course true but the offending post doesn't need to be made in the group

There's several threads in Meta made by DUers complaining about being blocked from a group, not for what they posted in that group, but apparently for what they posted elsewhere.

An example would be if the host of RKBA reads a post I made in GD and doesn't like it so he blocks me from posting here.

6. yes, I understand but, if you have NOT posted in the group before or after you made the offending

post then you can NOT be blocked from said group. Correct or no?

7. Correct but what does that have to do with your OP?

Here's what you said:

"~~~ a little reminder ~~~

Use it wisely."

All I'm saying is that the offending post(s) doesn't have to made in the group itself. Unless you are trying to say that someone, who has never posted in the gungeon, could be disparging the group or members of the group at other places in DU and then they actually come here to post something as innocent as "Hi!" and that person then gets blocked.

8. If they post Hi in here and then go to Meta and say

Last edited Fri Nov 9, 2012, 06:04 PM - Edit history (2)

fuck GC&RKBA (or whatever) then they can be blocked BUT if They never post Hi in here then they can NOT be blocked. That is what I am saying and I want everyone (including me) to make sure we all understand and we are all on the same page.

If what I am saying is NOT correct then I want a clarification, pronto.

capice?
