What, block Misery?! No idea what happened, and I have no intention of going to look, but dang am I glad I ignored that thread.
But, Cyborg, if you really must block someone, you have several options.
To change back to the old, sidebar menu system:
1) Go to your Profile Info summary page.
2) Look on the right side, directly above the part of the screen with the Profile data. There will be two little leftward pointing arrows there.
3) Click on those arrows. This will cause the page to reload.
4) On the left side is the old Profile menu. The "Buddies/Ignore List" option is listed there.
Or you can switch back by
1) Go to your Profile Info page
2) Mouse over the "Modify profile" option above the Profile data block on the upper left side.
3) Select "Look and Layout Preferences"
4) Check the checkbox for the "Use sidebar menus instead of dropdown menus when possible" option.
Or, for just this once, you can follow 1) and 2) above, then:
3) Select the "Buddies/Ignore List" option.
