On the fine art of Blocking:

No this is not the technique of block printing on fabric you may have learned in art class nor a step in dressmaking your mother may have taught you.

LV FB Blocking is a vicious form of shunning, far more devastating than the Scientologist or Amish practice of turning a member into a non person. Less extreme, perhaps, than the Voodoo religion which  transforms a person into a zombie.

But still.

Check out LV FB on January 17, 2014

Here is Aleks (Tapette) Tapinsh’ comment: I have blocked her, Karlis.

Karlis Streips responds: I have just received advice from another person that Ilze, whom I have blocked, is actually the same person you have just blocked.

Get this. Two grown men (?) competing on who blocked Ilze!

Likes are cheap as shit but to earn a LV FB block you must really be out there.

I was “out there” simply commenting on Canadian versus American health care practices when I was hit with not one, but two full frontal LV FB blocks.

Ilze Berzins: Did you know that wealthy Canadians travel to USA for their medical needs? The reason is because there is a bottleneck of care in Canada. Waiting for, let’s say, an elective colonoscopy takes three to five years. So Canadians go across the border to New York, to Ogdensburg, for the procedure where there is a special clinic which caters to Canadians, on a cash basis.

Aleks Tapinsh: Just paid 1, 170 for prescription medication I need for my sex change operation.

Vidas (Wide Ass) Germanis: Hmmm… Elective choices… Invasive endoscope or reading the trollings of Ilze Berzins… Methinks I can have my lower GI evacuated by Monday.

Ernests Piesis: Wide Ass. If it takes you until Monday to get done with cleansing, you are so full of shit your eyeballs must be brown.

Note: Anyone that uses the word “methinks” is clearly fucked in the head. But I’ll let that pass.

The upside is that I’m on a new planet now, setting my watch by Aussie time since I now have Australian friends who have not yet blocked me.

    Karlis Streips is quite a celebrity in Riga. He has his own TV talk show. I’m surprised he took the time to block you. You must have really pissed him off.

    Dunno why you have to bring in the Oz element. And I’m one of the ‘methinks’ people.. from Oz. I like to use that word’cos it is non-committal thought ie one hasn’t made a stance yet; one is still mulling the situation over. Some (new)issues are like that; some issues have been mentally resolved ages ago.’Fucked in the head’ can equally apply to hardliners who don’t / can’t change with the flux of the world’s ever changing face. The basics of life are eternal .. the question is: who’se version?

    Maris. I was so happy to suddenly flip in to a space which I enjoyed and you happened to be there to invite me in. Since then I have encountered your friends who have become my friends and one of these fine people have expressed an interest in my books.
    Sure this is an indulgence. Juris Kaza just castigated me on LV FB saying how I promote blogs about people who have “slighted” me. I’m not political. I enjoy saying my piece without anyone messing with me. Small as we are we Latvians constantly eat away at each other — as you yourself once said to me.
    Thanks for commenting.
    Enjoy Sochi.

    Linda. People like Streips tolerate only sycophants. They don’t like to be challenged.
