I know exactly what you mean. Time after time I get responses from those who obviously have not bothered to read my profile. If the email is not crude but just not a match, I will be nice and inform them that we are not a match and hope they have better luck on this site. However, if the email is crude, then when they get a curt response back, it's deserved.

It was an illustration of how "people who can't read or follow simple instructions" can act as if you are the one being rude.

It's ok that it didn't do anything for you. I can live with that.

Well, if you get a ton of emails (which we don't), I can understand getting snarky with people who can't either read a profile nor your reply to the first message..Best thing is the delete button, resisting the temptation to advice them of what dumbshits they are.

So we're rude because we don't reply to people who can't read or follow simple instructions? We can live with that.

And thanks for that super special story. I don't know what the point of it was. But thanks for sharing it anyway.

-Several have followed up asking why we deleted their message and we just delete those too.

You DO realize that you just became one of those "rude" people, don't you? At least as far as they are concerned.

Obviously THEY thought they were a good match for whatever reason. If you ignore them, or delete their email, then they just classify you as being rude. They will never realize that THEY are the ones at fault unless you tell them.

And no matter how politely you phrase it ("Hi, I guess you didn't notice the BIG LETTERS that say no photo, no repsonse") you run the risk (again) of being labeled rude.

I am an administrator for an online swing group. We have some very basic rules. No single males, no cheaters, must be in the DC/MD/VA area. I reject a dozen people or more a week who want to join even through they are single males, playing on the side or live in New Mexico (or some such place that isn't DC/MD/VA). At least half of them indignantly ask why they were turned down. I cut and paste the requirements into the email and send it back to them. About half of THEM send rude or insulting email back, usually telling me they didn't want to join our stinky old group anyway!

Sadly, I've had to reject a couple of people multiple times. For those, I start getting snarky. If they persist, I express amazement that someone who can't even read can find our group on the internet. Rude? Maybe.... but after they keep wasting my time, they lose an claim to a polite response.

"We just delete the emails if it's some fly by night guy or couple who email us."

We do the same for couples as well. It's not just SM's that we give the cold shoulder to. Basically, if it's obvious that a single or couple didn't read our profile and they email us anyway, we delete the email without reply. One thing we ask is that anyone who contacts us have pics available for us and that if there's no pics, there will be no response. Even couples who email us without pics get deleted. Several have followed up asking why we deleted their message and we just delete those too. Don't have time to mess with people who can't read.
