Default Blocking a buyer who you've already replied to

Normally, blocking a buyer will simply not show them the "Contact Seller" or "Ask a Question" link from the listing or your profile page. However, what about when you've already messaged them...Will they still be able to send you messages by just clicking 'Reply' to a message they've already received from you? This person hasn't bought from me by the way.

This one idiot is trying to argue the price of something I'm selling. Just typed me a solid paragraph about the purpose of eBay and how my price is apparently too high. All of this while I actually have the cheapest price on eBay and he's low-balling me dumb offers.

I would just block them and not respond any longer. No point even continuing the conversation if they are just going to low-ball you.

The only thing you need to consider is most households have more then one account and if you block one they will buy with the other accounts.

i recently had a person get in a bid war, then after it was over messaged me how that price was WAY TO MUCH .. uh you made the bids dumb dumb.

I opened a cancel transaction and blocked ASAP. can't leave bad feedback, can't buy item to leave bad feedbad.
