Could I use (a) if I was here even before he left?
Hi, Azz—Yes, you can. For example, the sentence would be implied by a "Yes" answer to "Have you been here since he left?" That said, as you probably know, if you want to communicate that you have been here since before he left, the most natural thing to say is "I have been here since before he left."
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
