I'm a long time artist from the east coast and I like to experiment with different mediums.
I was browsing My Little Brony and came across a cute drawing of Applejack laying in the grass on a sunny day and that image randomly linked to another artist's Tumblr blog called Cork Dork.  Their character is almost the spitting image of mine (colors, mane style, and cutie mark) including their affinity for grapes and wine so now I don't think I can continue with my pony OC. The only difference is their pony is a female earth pony.   I get that in this large fandom it's probably pretty hard to develop a new OC that isn't going to be similar to another person's creation but this is really too close.  If you want to check it out here's the link:
If the artist that draws cork dork notices my character, I apologize if it seems like I was copying your idea, I had no knowledge of your OC and did multiple google searches for grape themed pony OCs before deciding on mine but I didn't come across yours.  I realize it's because the name you chose doesn't have grape in it so it wouldn't pull up on a search.

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back. I asked "why?" The angel said "angels don't watch over Angels." Twenty angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, and one is reading this message. Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back in not one of soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you. Pleased read not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing will come your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard.

I have no qualms over the intention of this message, I thank you for your well meaning.  It would be nice if some magical being could just wish my struggle to be over and it would be but that's not the truth. Tonight I have to go to my job, which I hate, and I'll be on my knees on a hard floor and at the end of the night my knees will be in pain.

It's okay, i mean i had to send it to my friends xD, but it's your choice :D

I want to repeat that I appreciate that you had good intentions, I just don't believe in the ideas presented in the message. :)

Is there any way to remove someone from FA?
with out blocking.

the reason i ask is that someone who blocked me on this site last year added me FA today.
I don't know how they found me really either by typing my name up or stalking my journals.
The user blocked me last year after they complained about me and they had a fit.
I asked them why they added me but i don't really want them on my watch list so i don't know how to remove.

You can remove them from the list of people you're watching, just go to their user page and on the top row of tabs, one of the shows "-watch", just click on that tab.  Also you can block them on the tab next to that one.  The block feature is limited in that they can still see art you post and I think they can even read your journal entries though they're supposed to not be able to comment on your journal entries, art, or send you notes.  I think Dragoneer and his team are still building the features of the site.

I want to remove them , i clicked block but they still appear on my watch list. 

I am used to DA's layout as it's easier to block as that completely  removes the person 
I understand the site is still having feature built but blocking pretty much did nothing.
