Welcome to the Forum Mayor Dave. One of the best features of this forum is the FIND (search). Its located just above your post. Search for smoked steaks, and remove the checkmark and allow it to search the whole forum. There are a ton of hits... more than enough to keep you reading for a while.
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
