In short:
I'm still receiving messages from someone after blocking them.

In long:
So I did not vote entirely in someone's favor on something, and they started asking and asking and asking about it, in comments on other an unrelated debate I was in, through message. I asked them to cease, and when they did not I blocked them. Now I am still getting messages from them complaining about it.

What should I do?

bottom right in the actual personal message, it says 'stop threads' click that and you wont get anymore of them. Blocking a person doesnt automatically do that :P

You're not ragnar.

be careful that you are in the correct when you block them, otherwise if their concerns over your vote is actually correct, then you have vote-bombed their debate and are liable to have your voting privileges revoked completely. If your RFD completely justifies your vote, then you are in the right, but if your RFD is not thorough enough or faulty/incorrect you can be reported for it.

My suggestion is that you provide solid analysis of the debate and a clear cut reason for every point you give. Single-sentence reasons count as vote-bombs. But if your reasoning is good and clean you would avoid anyone questioning your grounds to vote in the first place.

Detailed RFD's will ensure you avoid any sort of criticism. But on a note of criticism, every member on DDO has the right to criticism another, that's the essence of debating. You should only consider blocking another member if they are spamming you, harrassing or violating any other aspect of their Terms of Service http://www.debate.org...

But yeah, just be careful when it comes to voting. Make sure you are in the right before you block them and make detailed RFD's in future to avoid such incidents.

*facepalm*

Okay the problem is persisting. Now that he cannot send me messages, he is continuing to stalk my debates (multiple comments, even when no one replies to him), and forum topics. What next step should I take?

In case of questions, from the Terms of Use: O. Will not use the Service to harass or "stalk" anyone.

lol twas me? :}

nah, I defended my conduct for my debates. I make it a point never to have poor conduct as of a while ago when I was reprimanded for having bad conduct on a debate by a bunch of other DDO users. As of that moment I have taken extra precautions to have impeccable conduct on all my debates and forum posts. When you penalized me the conduct point I hope you understand that I was quite distressed, as I could get reported for this since it isn't a first time offense. But lo behold, your conduct call was unjust.

If it comes to it, my conduct on my debates is of excellent quality from that moment onwards and anybody who questions my conduct in a debate must have grounds to accurately state it.

Report each such harassing post. Don't hold your breath, but something may eventually happen.

That's good advice, In fact, I can relate. There was this one guy who votebombed my debate, then set up a debate in mimicry of the one he had votebombed, then approached me in a pm, then set up a forum about me. I was quite honestly worried as to this guys intentions.

There is a loophole that permits the person you blocked to continue to send you messages from PMs in which he or she has already posted. You need to close all of these PMs by stopping them and deleting them

What should you do. You sound like a whimp. Go to battle with that individual and give them psychological hell. Otherwise just leave. =)

was about to call you out for being a jerk. then I remembered, "oh wait this guys a troll."
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Its odd you say that. This troll has more soul than you ever will on any given day. Thanks for the hole you put yourself in. =)
