Did I do the right thing by blocking him from Facebook and email?

Had a falling-out with my friend Charlie a couple of years ago because he joined a cult-like church and kept sending disturbing emails. I asked him to stop, but he refused and sent more of those emails. I let him drift out of my life.

He recently friended me on Facebook and I accepted, thinking people deserve second chances, but then he became friends with the person who got him to join this awful church and then he would not respond to my "how are you doing?" messages and would just be rude, like he was before (you know what they say - a leopard does not change his spots).

Did I do the right thing by blocking and deleting him? (Two of my best friends advised me to block him and delete him, because - as one friend put it - "he'll hurt you all over again.")

Answer on Did I do the right thing by blocking him from Facebook and email?

Yep. Cut him off.
