If I have been blocked by a buddy on Gtalk, is it possible for me to unblock myself and appear online to my buddy who blocked me?

If someone blocked you, they probably blocked you for a reason, right? – Wuffers Jul 24 '11 at 23:07
Friends don't block friends on Gtalk. – jer.salamon Jul 25 '11 at 0:00


You can't. I mean, why block someone if that someone can unblock him/herself?

Actually, though, the answer is yes. Go talk to your friend, and make conciliations.

This might involve using a land line phone, or sending him/her a letter in the mail. – Simon Sheehan Jul 24 '11 at 23:42
Or digging up an old bike or pair of shoes, and going on a journey into the wilderness outside. – Vervious Jul 24 '11 at 23:45
Imagine that eh? Old 20th century things. – Simon Sheehan Jul 24 '11 at 23:45
Give him a hug, maybe a kiss (if you want to gay it up)... But be gentle... – TFM Jul 24 '11 at 23:51
