You will be fine---get that primer on and see what you have---remember--shiny paint shows flaws much more that flat or low sheen paints---

Use a flat ceiling paint---and low sheen on the walls---

Call it whatever you want, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Some people call block filler a specific masonry product, some use the name more generically.
e.g.
http://www.sherwin-williams.com/home...tion-surfacer/

Up to 11 mils (!) application thickness (i.e. about 10 times thicker than paint).

Use your heads guys, obviously we are not painting our walls with concrete paint where not specified for drywall. Having said that, there are some.

That is a high build primer not block filler. Block filler is for filling the holes in concrete block is very thick-50 sq.ft to a gallon.
And I don't get how sanding a low spot will come out alright. The more you sand the lower it will get or the bigger the low area will get till you have to do the whole thing over.

Actually, it is best learned from a good professional drywall expert. You can do something wrong for 20 years and you might never learn the mistakes you are making. There is nothing like learning from the best.

I used to work with some guys that used the term for any generic high build coating. But I'm looking around the internet and I don't see anyone using it that way. I guess I will stop using the term block filler except for cinder block, and start saying "high build".

Well technically of course it doesn't come out right. I was just saying that sometimes you can sand surrounding a low spot and you won't notice it when you're done. Doesn't mean it's really the right thing to do.
