No, "blocking" refers only to preventing the person sending you a private message through the site. There is no way to "block" someone from copying things found in a public tree, and misusing them.

Of course, it's entirely possible that they found the materials in another tree that got them from yours, so especially not feasible to do "third generation" blocking - and there is no way to know for sure whether the document/photo was copied directly from your tree, because even if copied from another tree (which got it from yours) you will receive a notice that something was copied "from your tree" (at least, you will if the system is working correctly - but that's a subject that has been discussed in other threads, which observe that there seems to be a glitch in the Family Tree Maker sync function, and it sometimes removes the original poster's information from photos and documents).
