Okay, so, for whatever reason, people keep direct messaging me. Now, I don't really mind, especially when it's just "hey, how are you" or "here's some info" or "I have a question", but the message sim talking about... People just seem to start randomly hitting on and asking if I'm in a relationship or have a boyfriend... If you want to message me, especially about something like that, you should really read my profile. Why? Saves you the rejection. My profile talks of a relationship I've been in with this really amazing guy since February. If I was single again, I would change it. So please, just... Ugh. Sigh. Read my profile. Too many people asking these sorts of questions and it gets annoying. And I've only gotten this after I changed my profile picture from a drawing of a character I made to an actual photograph of me. Wearing make up.
Well, this has been a common issue in the past, and one thing that would help is by removing the photo you have of yourself on your profile and replacing it with a different avatar that you can search on Google. Just make sure that you pay attention to any copyright symbols so you don't get in trouble for pasting it other locations on the Internet without the publisher's permission. Simply block the person (or people) that keep sending you these messages and report them to a moderator or the site Admin. Keeping your photos private would help, also. You can also try removing any personal information you mention on your profile, same with mentioning things about your boyfriend. I hope this helps.
Were not supposed to swear. However the funny thing is, is that I got gagged for talking saying someone was threatening me. Also don't talk about it on here, it can cause fights. Also talk to pet, and a mod like personified, and lark. They can help alot!

You got gagged for cussing in the chatter and calling a member out by username, Eyes- not for saying someone was threatening you. This isn't about your gag so please remember that it's best not to bring up gags in public. If you have a question about it, you can ask me.
Changing your picture can help. I don't think it's fair, however, that those of us who enjoy showing ourselves in our profile pictures should have to feel that we must use an avatar to keep unwanted mails away. I would suggest blocking members who attempt to send flirtacious mail, and mailing a moderator to report when members are inappropriate towards you. That's about the best you can do.
I agree, MaidenCrow you shouldn't have to change your picture or make any adjustments for annoying people.
Just because somebody looks nice doesn't mean that they look that way for the sole purpose of somebody else. Looks aren't everything, not everybody is at the place in their lives where flirting is the thing to do, certainly not everybody is here for that... and look before you leap, those are all things that these annoying people have got to learn.
Okay, thank you you guys. I admit I have a gorgeous picture of myself as my avvie, but it's a selfie I took in the car on the way to meet my boyfriend to go to prom. I chose that as my avvie for a lot of other sites because I know I look gorgeous. I have thought about changing it to aomwthing more recent and I don't want to have to change it to another one of my drawings. My photos are all private and the only one that's of me is my avvie. But thank you guys for all your help. I was mostly just complaining and trying to tell people to read my bio BEFORE trying to hook up with me.
Cuz I don't do that stuff. And I didn't know we weren't supposed to cuss but I mostly cuss when verbally speaking and generally don't have a reason to do so on SoM.
