as usual, you don't have the faintest clue what you're talking about.

messages direct from you to me are blocked because you repeatedly ignored my
statement that i do not want you to contact me. i told you several times not
to email me, you ignored this instruction, so i blocked your mail.
some people might have you up on harassment charges for ignoring such clear
instructions. i'm a geek, so i have a simpler and less dramatic method of
dealing with such annoyances, i just alter my mail filters to make it more
trouble than what it is worth for you to email me directly: any message you
send to me from any of your addresses is returned to all of your known
addresses. if you try to get around that by sending from a new address (as you
did only a few weeks ago) then that new address is simply added to the list of
addresses that your mail is returned to.
this works remarkably well. most people give up after trying to send from 2
or 3 addresses.

what a coincidence - you're the first australian i've blocked for being a
actually, you're the first person i ever blocked for being a net.kook. most
other kooks i can just ignore because they don't try to mail me directly.

obviously, it doesn't.
