I completely overlooked that aspect of it, as I guess I’ve gotten so used to it on all social media platforms I never even thought that it’s something we should try to address.
Just as a sample, have a look at the messages I’ve gotten that fit Eileen’s description (in just the past five days).
As opposed to actual CS requests, there’s no easy/low effort way to dismiss these people, though you can “flag as inappropriate.” But are these messages really inappropriate? I can’t prove they’re on the site for the wrong reasons. But do men usually get these kinds of messages, too? It’s just low quality stuff that clogs up the site - and is a huge turn off for many female users, unfortunately.
Side note, I bet @aapeli could run a code for not allowing any members to send messages with just “hello” “hi” “hey” or hybrid “hy”, and show a warning that says, "Are you contacting this member for the right reasons? Remember, this is not a platform for finding dates. If you’d like to introduce yourself to another member, you might want to add some more details.’’
