Blocked people able to join lfg

Please anet, make it so that block people can not see my lfg and I don't want to see lfg of people who have blocked me as well.
I made lfg on raid and this guy joined my lfg. He started to tell everyone what we should and shouldn't do coz he thinks I am noob. I kicked him and blocked him. Now all he does is join my lfg at 10th person to get my lfg removed. And, he kept doing it week after week. This is really annoying. Reporting him really didn't do anything. Apparently some other people have had same issue with same person as well.
Luckily I have friend who can fill as 10th person and I found work around. But, this is really short sighted on Anet's part.
Please fix it asap.

    Or at least if we could have a highlight, like for the guildmembers, so we know there are blocked players in groups.

    oh I thought when you block someone they wont be seeing your lfg.. wow this guy sound like a loser.. take a video of the incident and then send to support to complain. I hope he gets a 3 months ban. whatever happen he should leave you alone and moved on but he continued to make it hard for you.

    Never had OP's problem before, but thought of a way to go around it. The offender is exploiting a weakness in LFG. What OP could've done is ask a player in group to leave group to be reinvited after the party is filled.

    There should have always been the option to block someone from joining your group. The system could depend on a "majority vote". Something to prevent players from joining if more than half of the group or squad has them blocked. It is not like the majority of the squad wouldn't vote to kick them anyways or suddenly decide to take this guy along after he has done this to everyone for the hundredth time.

    We are given the option to block someone from abusing the chat. This stops them from almost holding us hostage with their continuous spam.
    But then why is the only option to handle the LFG griefing something along the lines of disabling your chat for a minute. Not to mention that he is able to check on your activity to make sure he is able to continue the second you turn your chat back on. Seems pretty silly to me.
