Re: Who in this era ...

Skype? That's modern. We were swapping killfile entries on BBSes by the late 1970s. Certainly by the time USENET became popular they were common (see Larry Wall's rn, from 1984). Pournelle lamented the lack of killfiles in BIX in his The User's Column (later became Computing at Chaos Manor) in the early 1980s.
