I've had so many inappropriate messages from much older guys on here and its fucking disgraceful and I'm getting so tired of it :(
Why is there so many inappropriate messages on this site?
What Guys Said 45
Why? There are varying degrees of sick people out there, and the anonymity of the internet lets it run more rampant.
What to do?
-- First off, if you suspect someone of being a perv or whatnot, don't respond to them. Don't even argue with them. It will just waste your time and it will just make things worse.
-- Secondly, block them after they send a message. That way they can't look at your posts anymore and they can't message you.
-- Thirdly, if things really bother you, change your messages and/or profile to private. You can report them for 'private messages' also via the button on their profile if they harass you.
On a side note, make sure you avoid putting up photos that are google reverse searchable. (Don't let them be traced back to an instagram/twitter, for example). To avoid this, some people take photos just for here and use them exclusively on GAG.
The awful aspects of the web are not justifiable in the least, but it's simply how the internet is like at times. There are people that unfortunately go on here to try and find jack of material rather than answer questions reasonable :/2
I saw your other picture, and it was pretty sexaayyy, jailbait material for sure lol
But seriously, don't post "provocative" stuff if you don't want that sort of attention, specially since there are basement dwellers and just weird dudes all over. Not saying you got deserved any perverted messages, or offensive because that's fucked up. Now you know the kind of folks you're dealing with here.3
because behind the veil of a computer screen many people feel free to act on their basest instincts. the internet is a place where anti-social behavior proliferates. why because people think they are safe and their actions have no consequence1
There is a setting that says only accept messages from people you follow, that should put a stop to it and report any guy for harassment that sends you a sexual message.1
Because they're sick fucks. It's as simple as that. Make your profile private and only accept messages from people you follow.2
I guess that's what happens when you mix ages so much as this site does... personally I think they should have an automatic difference for underage-like highlight their name perhaps so you know you're talking to a minor/child... I'm a lot nicer to children/minors lol.
Likewise perhaps ONLY followers could PM a minor/child seems like it would slow this waaaay down. Personally I don't think I've PMed anyone first and no minors have PMed me.1
I'd call some of these people out so they can be shamed. Some guys are sick fucks on this site and prey on women. I seen a like 32 year old guy that wanted to sext a 16 year old, like what the fuck? I am guessing most of these guys are just sad basement dwellers.1

You have? I'm sorry 😔
Some people are just messed up in the head2
It's because the internet gives everyone so much anonymity that they feel they can say whatever they want, which means that when old creepy people see an attractive young girl that they could never get in real life they then feel the need to start talking shit to make themselves feel good1
Because while there are a bunch of decent older guys here, there are also way too many creepy old men here, and obviously they have no morals.1
Don't look at me!2
i have never messaged anyone here just ocassionally answering questions, but i suppose girls do get a lot weird messages from creeps..
i dont think its thsi site i think whole net is like this, just as others suggested make profile private and thats about all you can do.1
Because it's the internet and you can get away with saying a lot of garbage. Accept that it will happen and don't feed the trolls and things will be better.1
there are creeps, idiots, assholes, etc anywhere.
it's not just about your age... these kind of messages are alway inappropriate and disgraceful if she doesn't gave any signals that she is interested in this stuff (and no, having a beautiful picture or answering a sexual question is not a sign lol)1
So basically you click "Settings" and then check the following two boxes
Set profile private.
Allow messages only from people I follow.
Then you click the "Save" button. If you didn't do that, then you're inviting people to send you all sorts of shit and it's on you.1

You need to say who they are to admins/mods.
IPS can be collected.1
Yeah I bet it's pretty odd.1
Report them so admins can look into it.2
There are lots of assholes here1

I believe every woman on this site is getting those messages by some desperate creeps by now, so you're definitely not alone.
Just set your profile private, that's the best measure for prevention. Also report & block the guys that harass you on here. That's unfortunately all you can do against it really..1
Block the users and/or report them. I'd recommend doing both. Chances are, those users are harassing others as well.1
Like, you should change your profile settings so they don't contact you. It sucks that they're rude and they shouldn't do it, but they're going to anyway.
And like, one of the reasons is because you have a photo on your profile. Like, I don't have one, so girls only message me when they have normal questions, but if I put a picture up, I know guys will start sending me stuff.1
Disgusting! Report them!2
Well if your profile is private they shouldn't be able to message you unless you accept their follow request so... just don't accept requests from creepy guys! 😁1
you should set your profile to private1
Because there's a lot of desperate people out there.
I also get a lot of messages but on the grand scheme of things it's a small percentage of the population here.1
Huh? Can you receive messages from people you aren't following? My profile's private.0
Just don't follow people you don't know and let only followings message you1
15 ain't no kid darling.3
Thats how men are, they are perverts desperate for pussy4
I AGREE! Because judging someone evil based upon sexual preference is a good thing.
