Odd Situation Advice?

I'd like some advice... End of November I ordered a commission with a due date of Xmas (last year), it was never completed, and multiple dates were set. I asked the artist for an update in June, and to provide a wip or a refund, they refused both and rushed my commission, admitting to doing so as well. They refused to do all the fixes, and eventually got a mutual friend involved who gave them money to give me a refund, which was confusing and not OK with me at all. (The mutual tried to refund me directly themselves and I said no)
But I got a partial and the rushed 'wip' theyre now saying it is. (saying the image was never completed and thats why it was 'rushed' when they told me it was finished and they rushed it on purpose)

I was going to post them to AB, but I got the image and the partial so I agreed not to. But they insisted I unfollow their twitter accounts, which I was going to do, but they keep venting and ranting about me there, and I capped stuff for an AB post on their attitude alone. They mention me by name on Twitter, and I got some caps of the callouts before I was blocked.

They are now doing it on FA, for the sole purpose that I can see it. And getting the mutual friend involved, to message me on their behalf.

I like their art, and even though their attitude and actions are something lacking, I still wish to see the art, and screencap the posts theyre making for proof for an AB post.

The journals Im screencapping are not callouts with my name directly, but worded to me, and dragging me through the dirt, so to speak. Theyve called me out by name on Twitter, and I know they are calling me out via IM/notes as people have come to me about the situation.

Should I continue to watch their FA and compile evidence? (Is there a point to this as I got a partial refund, but their attitude was atrocious) or should I unwatch and let them fizzle out on the callout posting?

EDIT I seem to have misworded. They do not want me watching their FA and thats what the journals are about. I like their art and wanted to continue to view it (I havent faved or commented on anything), and continue to cap the journals about me for evidence.

Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

You can watch the artist until they choose to block or ignore you, I believe. I am not sure, but I thought FA's block/ignore function makes it so you can't follow the person and fave their work. Unfortunately the knowledge base for FA is not up still, so I don't know.

I do feel if you post things online to places like furaffinity you have to accept the fact that any person can follow you, even if you don't particularly like them. But I feel if the artist is really, truly bothered then they would put you on ignore and not try to drag this whole thing public.

I'd say make a beware. I know sometimes when you make a beware about an artist they may want to cause blowback or potentially sic their fans on you, but it sounds like they've already been trying to cause blowback for you on twitter.

Talked to FA staff at FurTheMore: the block feature prevents users from commenting, favoriting, sending notes, etc. but does not stop them from viewing your content or being told when new things are uploaded onto the site, journals included, assuming that they were +Watching you before being blocked. You also still have the option to report them even if they have you blocked or vice versa, granted it has to be for a reason that breaks site rules.

... I only asked them because someone I had blocked for reporting artwork I had commissioned kept reporting my fursuit photos as "obscene material" and the staff site would let me know that they weren't going to do anything about it since, well, there was nothing remotely past G about them. They were just livid I had blocked them and kept making journals about how I was a "person of power" and "was to be feared."

I wouldn't be surprised if they changed how the block system works.

The artists journals state that they apparently blocked me but it did nt force an unwatch. I havent tried to fave/comment or anything to test this out though.

to test you can leave a blank comment. it should tell you you've been blocked if you've been blocked, if not then it should tell you that you cannot leave a blank comment.
