@MalinMoon...Don't worry about it as the "blocking" option is only ad/posting specific and NOT user/account specific. FYI, there is NO option to totally block a user, as the blocking process is only enacted in relation to the specific item(s) in question.

Hi @MalinMoon I’m also in AZ, glad you found the forum, I usually use the following feature in case I need to find the person later to unblock you can follow someone by going to the persons profile page and tap on follow before reporting and blocking that person, following the same information to unfollow by tapping on following in profile page, after a short time following the person I’ve block if I feel no need to keep following them, I remove them from my follow folder.
here’s the OfferUp information on unblocking,

Home Reputation How do I unblock a user?
How do I unblock a user?
Unblocking a user is slightly different depending on the device you're using.

First, go to the user's profile by clicking on their picture from any of their items.

Then:

For iOS, click on the Unblock icon in the top right corner.
For Android, click on the circle-slash icon in the top right corner.
For Web, click on the Flag icon in the user's profile picture (bottom right corner) .
If you can't find the user, please contact support with the following information:

The name of the person you'd like to have unblocked.
The name of an item that you interacted on.
If you had a conversation with the user, tell us what the topic of the message was.

Looks like you got some help, I'd like to throw in my two cents by quoting a recent response:

First and foremost welcome 😁

There's a couple main things to keep in mind.

Ask questions if you're a buyer, the more the better.

Inspect any items thoroughly before committing.

A persons profile may give you an idea of how they do business.

If you're a seller ask them if they have questions, provide accurate details in your posts / ads and take well lit images.

Be polite and direct.

Don't ignore anyone if you can help it, you wouldn't want to be ignored so don't do it to others.

Avoid possible confrontation by blocking — don't stress yourself out.

Try to contribute in the forums whenever you're able.
