I would delete all of these:

Must not have messaged users looking for intimate encounters or sex.
Must not be looking for Hang Out
Must not be looking for Other Relationship
Must not be looking for Activity Partner

I would break each subject into a separate paragraph for easy reading and do a little clean up with full sentences. I would take out the "I think I should get rid of work photographs."

I think the 2nd photograph is too dark , I would remove that one and add one of you smiling.

My point to removing some of your restrictions ... I sent you an email with some suggestions, but got a notice I could not message you. Why filter out potential contacts, if only for chat. It never makes much sense to me.

Nah, you're just blocking anyone who has talked to someone on this site who was looking for sex. I must have once, though I don't remember it, because the filter blocks me. If I see someone I might want to say something to, usually just a comment on something in their profile, I email. I don't look to see their intent. Now I'm forever blocked by that filter :)

Very understandable to block anyone looking for a casual encounter. Maybe for someone looking for "other relationship." Most people don't block that one, though.

The other ones, you know, people sometimes don't want to commit to saying "I'm looking for a relationship." Sometimes they are new to dating and want less pressure by saying they are looking for email, activity partner, etc. It's just a way of "getting your feet wet." Those might be the best to snatch up quickly. Even if that's all they are looking for, think of it. They want to contact you. Why would you not want them to be able to. Guys say they get so few emails as it is.

In my entire 2 years here, I've seen like one maybe two people looking for other relationship.

"So, if someone doesn't read profiles, they should be excused? (shakes head)"

Excused from what? I'd be interested to hear you elaborate on that one.
