So I told him thanks for his time (and blocked him) and posted his letter as an example of what NOT to send on a first message.


Another thing you could do is respond by saying, "What a timely email! I'm hard at work on a book about losers on the Internet who write stupid letters to women, begging for attention by making crude advances towards them. It looks like yours might end up on the cover of the book. Thanks, and keep sending it. The more material, the better my book will be."

I'd be surprised if you ever heard from them again after that.

Create the "sexually explicit e-mails from ambitious gorillas" thread. Now all the women know to whom to send dramatically large foliage. Better yet. Rate them and have an Olympics....

The best way to deal with emails like that is: "Block & Delete".

These guys know they are being complete pigs and are looking to get any type of reaction out of you so you'll email them. They know they wouldn't want their sister being subjected to emails like that but they do it anyway. They are scumbags and hypocrites to boot so why waste any of your precious time reply to them?

Spend your time replying to the good guys. Not the complete morons.

Happy fishing.

I don't usually receive "nasty" e-mail. I've received some psycho letters, but I just ignore them.

oh then... right after I send it.. I can block em ..
lol

Just save their message to a .txt file, block them, and THEN email your thoughts.

Yes, you can email people you've blocked, as long as they haven't yet blocked you.

.. or you can quote their message body, so you still will have the record of it in the 'they made first contact' message history even after blocking and making their emails disappear.

Funny that it is a two way street. Most of my friends are women, and they show me that grotesque stuff. I would never do that on camera, unless it was private and for a girlfriend.

The problems guys have is that 95% of the mails we get are from some "chick" (could be a guy or gal in real life) asking you to see their "private pics" on this or that paysite.

The lesson is just to watch for online predators, and report them as spam or prohibited.

Hi OP,

I don't get many nasty emails ....I mean the real nasty ones like some have described......but I do get my share of the young guys asking me to help them fulfill their older woman's fantasy....haha!!!....but believe it or not, even most of those messages were decent enough and some were downright funny....and depending on the mood I'm in and if I have time, I might just send them a humerous reply back along with my thanks but no thanks line....haha!!

But I have received very nasty hate mail because of my personal religious beliefs which are stated on my profile....and I've even had to block a few who continued to persist in saving my soul from burning in hell!!....

Love and peace...
Old..

ps: And for whatever it's worth, I couldn't sign off before I added that I, like many people on here, happen to like Irreverent Lass's profile......I'm just sayin'...

any nasty outburst whether vocally or in print demonstrates ones inability to be respectful of the wishes or of opinions of others. If one encounters any who has difficulties handling with consideration and respect ...may it be a rejection, a suggestion or an unfavourable advice given.
May I ask ...what value is there to you in continuing to induldge in ...degrading correspondences?

I think they are a form of cyber flashing. They are intended to shock and disturb just like flashers in real life. It is not sexual it is a power issue. Most flashers have difficulty with
" normal sexual relationships" they get their rocks off by shocking women. The best thing is to delete the message. They will get a woody if you respond in any way.

Best thing to do is BLOCK....problem solved...not like you'd want to talk to them again or anything.

it didnt have anything to do with me?? then how come my name was in it?
if you are embarassed by a woman who is honest, then i feel sorry for you. i dont belittle or berate, i do laugh a lot at things and notions i find rather silly.
conformity for the sake of it is for ppl who lack original thought. maybe i am the different one that takes all parts of the profile into account,, not just the pic. please tell me whats wrong with making conclusions based on all the evidence rather than drawing conclusions based on only a picture? "dont judge a book by its cover"
while your juding that a woman in a nighty is posting it cuz she likes to have sex ( as if there was something wrong with enjoying it) ask yourself this,, how come you didnt think something like "wow, she must be fairly self assured to post that" ? HOW COME YOU DRAW NEGATIVE CONCLUSIONS?
if anyone is belittling, its you. you are judging me based on little or no evidence and your own agendas about sexuality.

LMAO........one word BLOCK.......simple as that!......to each his own opinion on this thread....I agree with the pic theory TOTALLY.......you put a pic up of what you want to portray to others.........a nightie is naughtiness waiting to happen....a swimsuit is a swimmer unless it is very provocative......a nice pic of you in regular clothing is more REALISTIC...........one of you and MANY others of the opposite sex portrays to others that you may be a player...one of you and YOUR EX is a total turn off.......why would someone post one like that?...but I have seen it several times on this site.
Emails that are threatening by any nature to you ..should be reported than blocked...I have done this already...one in particular guy kept coming back with new profiles...and I would just keep reporting the emails and block them...he finally gave up!............wouldnt you give up the first time someone blocked you or had your profile deleted by the website?......use your instincts ...if its nasty....report and block...simple procedure....why instigate further with email replies from you and going back and forth?...it only shows that you yourself playing their game turns them on........so why play it?.....................THIS IS MY OPINION AND I AM STICKING TO IT!................ HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE!

Know it was not a pleasant experience, but be careful of naming names here, it will get you blocked by POF and maybe even deleted.

I have to agree with the Brian Thorn who wrote in 2007 about the forum being resurrected after two years -- meaning 2005-- that all anyone needs to do is to delete and block!

A good question and fair resolving of the problem though has its failures sadly.
While may help its better advice then ignoring,yes other men will twist your idea into more xesual talk.Or give attitude,fight,belittle you even their own kin,or not care just indifference like you never said anything.Disturbing.
I really like your way and I too have done the same more or less but not to every crude note depending on my temper etc lol but really telling them if they had any female kin or friends who have been treated as so why should he cont.the path and informing him that if he did it to them whats the difference.
Unfortunately either they forget or just play along and afterwards go back to their path again.
But accepting their choices is not healthy and we should not have to let them/it go on without consequences.So telling them the harm they are doing and such is good though if it does change soon who knows.I hope things and ppl will be better for the better.
and the same for women who also choose this as men do it women, women do it to them.for whatever reason.but even if meant as a lesson well can backfire.

After Writing I Block.And Report.Or Nothing.it varies.
Sending viruses to them can land you in trouble too,for if they are hackers an etc they will do worse.

and to think we use to write letters mostly in kind.

Ignoring is prob the best bet, some guy wrote me b4 the holidays & when I did not swoon, he wroteme a nasty letter & blocked me. I bet he is still on this site, writing nasty letters & blocking...soon he will be out of women to write-N-block

I hate when that happens! Blocked again! No worries. While I am persistent and I'm not a stalker so won't contact you again. Just wanted to let you know my interest in you was sincere. Good luck to you!

I ain't no stalker....but...

or the classic sentence:

no offense....but...
