assuming the blog is related to Democratic party issues

1. There is someone who does that in another forum which I find annoying

No content, no context, just a link to their blog. Now I look for their name before clicking any links in that forum becasue it is just a waste of my time.

I'm ok with content from someone's blog with a read more link. And the poster should identify that it is their blog.

4. It is easier to just block them

Then it is just like they don't exist in your feed.

3. Admin has said if a poster contributes to discussions beyond simply blog flogging,

it's ok. Simply blog flogging may be considered spam.
