Allo, totally fantabulous beautiful and did I mention amazing GAG community.
Okay now here is the dealio. I've very recently joined a online dating site and was perusing the profiles when I came upon a interesting one. It basically said she was humorous from her toe to the hair in her nostrils, (okay not the exact words but I'm humorous was sprinkled throughout her profile). So I was interested and sent her a email on something she said that caught my attention the most. It went along the lines of "when it comes to me throw the rule book out the window".
So my response was something to the effect
"OMG, I don't even know you and you're bossing me around telling me to throw a rulebook out the window! How are you going to get anyone to talk to you if you're already bossing them?"
Her response was that I was rude, that she was joking about the rulebook and blocked me from further contact.
So is her response correct or what? I'm relatively new to online dating and wonder if I need to curtail a bit for this digital medium. Now it doesn't bother me that she has blocked me, as she doesn't even know me. However, it will be relatively useful to know if I somehow breached a online social meaness barrier thingahmabob.
Thank ya everyone. Love ya all.

I will say that you've encountered the #1 issue with online dating...it's online. What we THINK say online (you thought you were innocently joking and teasing) and what the other person interprets (in your case, her perceived rudeness of your words) leaves a lot of wiggle room...
Unfortunately there is no intonation when you read something. You take it for what it is. So with that said, maybe be a bit more cautious next time. Make sure the girl knows you're joking, add on a JK or lol or :P face so she knows you aren't completely serious.
This girl's reaction was a bit absurd because her profile indicated that she had a sense of humor so she reacted kind of badly. But it is what it is. She's clearly not for you. Good luck with online dating!5
