last Tuesday I got into a minor tete a tete with a Hillary Clinton supporter who answered a general tweet I had put out. She didn’t care for my pointing out Clinton’s use of her sexually predatory husband as a spokesman while hitting Bernie Sanders as a sexist, it was the first post in my “are you kidding me?” series but I digress…
However I bring up the story not because of our exchange but because it was of interest to someone else.

Ladies and gentlemen meet Mr. Woosta
Judging from his self description you will note that we are both from central Massachusetts. As I used to broadcast out of worcester I presume he first found me via my radio show and for a while and for all I know he could be someone I actually know personally, but there is one thing that is rather unique about MrWosta that is different from most other people who I have twitter exchanges with.
He’s been blocked by me.
Anyone who knows me understand this is very atypical behavior for me. Unless a person is a phony account, or a person trolling the #catholic hashtag selling nazi stuff or tweeting nudity or profanity into my timeline I don’t block you, in fact I’m known for purposely not blocking people so that folks can see our full exchanges and judge who is right and who is not based on the facts.
For quite a while Mrwosta and I had regular exchanges, sometimes friendly, sometimes testy but generally respectable although he delighted in trolling my timeline if I said something he disagreed with which I confess I found occasionally annoying.
But if you want to really understand why I blocked him the answer is after the jump but if you look carefully at the post above you might already know why, since apparently he is upset enough to literally be searching my timeline to find exchanges like the one above.
