So, I was about to play an online game with a friend. I was chatting with him through WLM latest build (non-beta), when a girl from my distant past decided it was a good idea to talk to me.
Long story short, I decided I didn't want to talk to her anymore. Now, instead of going through the process of blocking, then deleting her, I went through a different procedure...
I went into Options, clicked the Privacy tab, scrolled to where her address was at, selected it and sent it to my Block list.
Several days later, I realized how insenstive I was, and I wanted to apologize. It was also during these days I recovered my laptop, where I was using Miranda IM to chat instead of WLM. So I signed in through Miranda IM, and waited for her... and waited... and waited... but she never came.
I then thought that maybe my blocking her might be causing some conflicts, so I unblocked her through Miranda IM, but she wouldn't appear. I figured that maybe she deleted me from her contact list, so I tried signing in simultaneously with another MSN account I have. When she finally signed in, she only seemed to appear on my secondary account, whereas in the first one, where I originally blocked her, she did not show up.
I decided to sign in using WLM and check if her address was still in my Blocked list in the Options window, but just as I thought, she was no longer in the Blocked list.
Also, worth to note, as much as Miranda IM, WLM did not show her in my contact list. I started to get a bit worried, so I went into my email account to manually check on her address, only to find out she WAS there, but there weren't many options to customize.
I ended deleting her account from my list and then readding her, hoping she would readmit me and get this thing working. But alas... it didn't.
What I'd like to know is what am I supposed to do now. I dunno what I'm supposed to do, and given that my problem with her is now "sorted out", I'm kinda sorry for taking that drastic measure.
However, if there happen to be several solutions, I'd like to pick the one that involves the least ammount of input on her side, if possible.
Thank you in advance.
