I just received a yellow alert

that I have been blocked from participating in the History of Feminism group. Not to sound flippant but I had no idea I was participating. The only groups I use are Latest Threads, Cooking and Baking, and Fiction. 😨 A trifle ironic as I marched for Womenís Rights and passage of the ERA. I was also president of my local FEW (federally employed women). Strange. I must have offended someone. I guess I will never know.

3. Well, that's weird. Have you used the folder to the left titled "Ask the Administrators" to

see if an admin has the answer to your banishment?

5. You may have posted in a thread from the group without realizing it.

From the notes on the groups pages:

"Only members who have posted in a particular forum may be blocked from that forum"

So, perhaps you posted in a thread not realizing it was from that group. Threads from groups do show up on the Latest Threads tab.

9. Both Boston Bean and I are moderators of HOF and I did not block you either, nor did I get

any notice. In fact, I don't even see that you were posting in HOF?

10. I did not receive an email either. However, checking the block list this poster is blocked.

Probably back in 2016.

8. It looks like you were blocked a long time ago.

You are number 47 out of 91 blocked DUers.

17. Oh, well, I don't remember ever posting

in that group. Perhaps, I did. Have always fought for womenís rights. Since college, through the 80s and 90s. I am now content to let the younger generations carry on. One last word of wisdom to impart: donít be so harsh on one another. I certainly apologize to anyone I may have offended.

This may be why?

12. No. I guess I could ask the Administrators.

I looked over my recent messages and in one I said I would vote for the Democratic nominee no matter who it is. I told the breakfast crowd what I had for breakfast. Sunday, I told the fiction group that my two favorite books are: Wuthering Heights (always had a soft spot for Kathy) and A Daughter of Time (a great detective story). Feminism? Donít think about it too much (maybe thatís my offense). Oh, well.

16. You were blocked there before I was, and I was blocked years ago...

A whole bunch of us were blocked not long after it was created.

Why you just got a notice is a glitch, since whatever you did to get blocked back then is most likely long forgotten.

Since forum hosts have already chimed in, you could send them mail asking them to unblock you. Or, you could just forget about it if you don't plan to post there.

18. Dear TB,

I donít plan on participating in the group. It seems so long ago. Perhaps I was trying to be funny and instead fell flat. Itís ok, my most important problem now is giving out hearts. I feel Miss Millie needs a heart from me. I admire the loving care she gives to her father and sister by cooking dinner for them every evening. 💕
