Tool to block other managers
Have you ever been in a situation where another manager keeps sending you lopsided trade proposals in their favor over and over again (including the same ones) even after you reject them? Or a manager that keeps sending annoying emails through the league message system (even if you've already blocked your email address in the league)? Well if Yahoo would implement a software update (in all fantasy sports, not just football) that would allow managers to select which other managers not to receive trade offers or league messages from, it would instantly solve the problem and Yahoo would never even need to be contacted about it.

I think this is an amazing idea and came on here to suggest it.
I think a smart manager would start blowing up the teams at the bottom of the standings just before the trade deadline.
Essentially, send the message of “Give me your good players and I’ll stop blowing up your phone”.
Without a way to block this behavior, it would be in my best interest to also use this technique. I’ve noticed in some leagues, really lame trades just before the deadline between a manager who clearly doesn’t care anymore and a top team. I always ask, “does he really think sending his best player off for two scrubs is going to save his lost season?”
No, but it will get the other manager off of his back.

I have a paid private League where one manager is pleasured in sabotaging our League by dropping top players and doing lopsided trades in order to sabotage the League I need his team frozen
Thank you John, hardly anyone has seen this suggestion - not sure if you could vote it up, but it could possibly help get the suggestion higher on the list. Thanks!

I was about to suggest the same thing. It is very annoying and we just had one manager in a Pro League send a league-wide email immediately after accepting one of these offers saying he accidentally hit "accept" rather than "deny." I think that this is one of the reasons that these trolls send repeated offers. It's a numbers game for some small percentage to mouse-slip onto accept and give them an unfair trade by mistake.
And it would be so easy to simply have a tool allowing you to decide to not receive trade offers just from that individual. I absolutely have no issue with rejecting lopsided offers, but getting them over and over again from the same individual is a nuisance we shouldn't have to put up with.

I have this in a private league and it is ridiculous what he offers.
