1. You should not block the admin of a group you are in. Just leave the group.

2. Blocking someone only stops them from contacting you, faving or commenting on your photos, sending you flickrmail, etc. It does not keep you from seeing their stuff.

3. Did you block them or just stop one kind of notification?

2,3 (more on these points) One could reasonably argue that this is a loophole in the capability of "blocking". You could make a suggestion about this in Flickr's "suggestions" thread here:

But practically speaking, if you're opting to receive group notifications, and you don't want to see anything from an admin of some particular group, then you really need to NOT be in that group.

4. You are not supposed to call out people by name in the Help Forum.

Okay, thanks for all the advice.
I will simply quit the group.
Sorry I didn't know proper blocking etiquette. Please forgive me.

Before leaving a group, use the option MUTE THIS GROUP............ Worked for me. I mute every notification I get from FLICKR Groups so when I sign in I do not have 10,million ridiculous notifications

A good start would be to remove the name of a fellow Flickr member from your OP....
