The only problem I had was when a person from Canada who was new to ebay would not understand why I had to wait for his e-check to clear. Now they put on there an e-check is just like a regular check and takes time to clear.
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 .
