    Loads of guys get really nasty and aggressive if you give them a hard rejection, whereas ignoring has the plausible deniability that she might just have missed the message or forgotten.
    Why not just up your privacy settings so they can't message you at all?

    In comments on viral videos / pics I always see desperate guys harassing girls who commented. Surely people can't think it will work?

    (on an unrelated side note, is it possible to group message all the girls on TSR at once?)

    I'm a guy, although gay guys do like to have a go


    but I don't care because I am big, so it must be worse for women being harassed by straight guys.


    This aside, girls shouldn't have to block strangers because some guys are so socially unaware they do not know how to act.

    Sounds almost like people here complaining their photos didn't get enough reps so it's obviously some conspiracy #illuminati

    If you don't like receiving messages from strangers then the solution is to block strangers from messaging you.

    It's not a case of 'girls shouldn't have to', it's about solving the issue in the quickest and easiest way.

    The problem is they will still have info on the location of the victim and other details so can track them down!

    Something I've noticed.


    Loads of guys on FB and other social media will message a pretty girl out of the blue, trying to get to know her (he obviously wants sex) and when she ignores him, he complains at how rude women are as if he deserved an answer, like piss off you creep.


    It's even worse if he keeps pestering her and she blocks him and he doesn't see what he did wrong
    Are you female? I can't tell, I'm on the app.

    Sorry.. what has that got to do with receiving unwanted messages?

    If your location information is freely available than yes, anyone can track you down if they so wish. It's irrelevant to whether they then message you or not :s

    I know a girl (seriously hehe) and she once told me she hated getting messages under her pictures. She replies politely to most of them though. So if i see a picture of someone i like i will give it a like and thats all.

    It's completely different for me.


    I don't really fall for girls easily, I just try to have fun and if girls are along with me it's nice. If I did like a girl and wanted her, we probably wouldn't be strangers to begin with.

    Incomprehensible to YOU, that's the important factor here. Also, saying that I look like I've come out of a Colombian whorehouse is not even close to a tease, so your counter argument is a big lie.
