Hi there and welcome to Justanswer.

You need to use another chat program to know. Get the Pidgin chat client:

http://www.pidgin.im/

Install it, and use it to login with your gmail account to the gtalk chat. A list of your contacts will come up.

Next, find for the person who you think is blocking you and Right click, select "get info." If the person's name does not come up, then you have been blocked by them.

i have already tried to do exactly that. it did not work. his name did not show up at all, although it still shows up on my chat on gmail.

Then you have been blocked by them.

well, this is not new info for me, as i have already tried it, so i really do not feel like i should have to pay the $38 since it did not solve my problem.

Sure

And just to clarify, there is no solution for this, if you've been blocked, as is apparent here, they must remove you from their block list, nothing you can do on your side will get you unblocked.

Thanks,
Bernie
