So, I confirmed that Ricoh is in fact discontinuing the IM C2000. Apparently, it's due to dealer/customer feedback and based on (what sounds like) lack of demand for that configuration. As of now, that's the only IM model in the A3 color series to be phased out.
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
