    Apologies if this was answered before. I'd like to know why RJ profiles don't appear ("Guys Who Viewed Me") when they've e-mailed you.

    The system just doesn't seem to be terribly creep-proof. I figure people are just trolling profiles from searches and clicking "Send E-Mail/Send IM" without opening the profile itself? Is there a "Guys Who E-Mailed/IM'd Me" search feature?

    Daily on average, I get at least one new e-mail from a different profile (maybe a different person, maybe not), usually requesting c2c/private pix or some random depravity, and I'd much rather see who I am about to converse with before deciding whether or not to do so. I only presume they've seen my profile pic before electing to send me an e-mail... why can't I at least do the same before responding? Certainly I'm never required to open e-mails, but it seems I am required to click on their "profile name" if I want to know more about who is querying me. And some guys are not worth the time wasted viewing them.

    Same deal for IM pop-ups as well. "Person X wants to IM chat with you... Yes or No?" I'll click "No" by default, then check "Guys Who Viewed Me" to see who Person X is. Of course, more times than not, Person X is not listed, leaving me to have to remember their profile name, search, then send an IM request back if I am interested. I'd rather not click "Yes" just to have some random dude half my age and twice my size (or vice versa) whacking off on my computer screen just to realize why I'm not interested in chatting.

    From what's been said in other threads, there is a way to go into your settings and prevent someone from seeing that you've viewed them. Perhaps some of these guys have done this.

    Thank you.

    I see now in "preferences," there is an "Allow other members to see when I've visited their profile" checkbox, that I guess people un-check. I don't see how that checkbox helps anybody. Shouldn't it be the other way around? "Allow me to see ALL members who have visited my profile?" Instead, we can all just un-check the box and lurk at will?

    There's also, "Temporarily hide my profile from everyone, including other RealJock members (Note: your profile will not show up in searches and you will not be able to instant message with other RealJock members)" I trust there are valid reasons for this one, but is it safe to assume that in addition to IM, you can't e-mail either? And how long is "temporarily?" Until we change our minds?

    Sorry I'm not bugging RJ IT with these questions, I just figure someone's been down this road already.
