    So here's what my profile says under "About the guys I'm looking to meet:"

    O
    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HEREnly looking for friends/workout partner. NOT LOOKING FOR ANYTHING ELSE.

    I've got a partner, we're engaged, we're not open.



    And yet guys or maybe spambots, continually send me emails like this one:

    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HEREHow are you?well i hope,I am glad your profile caught my attention,there i decide to glance through your profile.write to express my sincere interest in you. Without much ado, I want you to tell me what you think whether your search is still on or about to end depending on the way things go between me and you. I believe in friendship - relationship, 'cos a good friendship makes a solid bridge to a better and reliable relationship...don't you think so?. i got so astonished by your profile pictures when i came across your profile on here..i would love to get to know you better,if you don"t mind...


    Am I not clear enough that I'm not seeking anything but maybe friends and workout partners?

    Yup. You are clear 'nuf. The bots, or the spammers are not getting in... There is not much you can do about this.
    Shrug with your shoulders and simply ignore!

    there's nothing about that message that acknowledges you personally, it's the sort of garbage that gets copied and pasted to tons of users.

    between this and all the middle east shit, this site is beginning to seem pretty useless to me.

    I believe there's a spam button you should hit to alert mgt to block.

    I totally agree and wouldn't respond but it does mystify my why my email address would be worth the trouble some guys go through to get it. Anybody know?
