Problem with minimum characters in first messagePage 1 of 1    
Hi,

I've been getting bombarded with messages from bots for the last few months.
To remedy it (because almost all the time their message consists of just "Hey there :)") I have set the minimum character limit to 50 characters for the first contact message.
However after doing this, I am still receiving the "Hey there :)" nonsense from bots and fake profiles.
That's clearly well below 50 characters.
What is happening?

Thanks.

As has been written about over and over and over in these very forums ---

Hey there :)

is the message you receive when a woman clicks the "show interest" button on your profile. It is like a wink on match. It is a flirt. It is a lazy way to make contact. No effort is required other than clicking. It isn't actually a message therefore it does not have to conform to the parameters you have set regarding minimum characters.

And the bots and fake profiles use this "flirt" to their advantage; this "flirt" circumvents the message length requirement as spot noted above.
