currentrider, I posted about it in the website area a couple of months ago "when is a block not a block"

received no reply from the sls powers that be.

right now we would love to show no interest in anyone, but if we do, we block everyone.

Asplendid,

The answer is what PG said.

I'm seriously considering following Hikerdancer's approach. I still think it's goofy that SLS equates no interest to "please block". I don't see anyone explaining or supporting this practice. I should probably take this beef to the forum thread regarding the SLS site.

Shelly now you also have to show interest in them. When I took my interest levels to 0 for everyone no one could see our profile.

I am not sure since the system upgrades, but in olden days in order to "HIDE" your profile from a group of people, (I think it's still in use also)

HOME PAGE -- select TOOLS ----select PRIVACY OPTIONS

and you should see a section that will allow you to HIDE your profile from males, females or couples. If you are a paid or lifetime profile, you can even HIDE your profile from FREE MEMBERS.

Previously, by doing that process... those groups could not see you, but you were able to view their profile.

On a side note, when MR. U was a SM and he was contacted by a couple that had SM's blocked in general (therefore HE could not see the profile contacting him) he would block that particular couple from the block option in the email.

I am genuinely confused. There is clearly a choice between 'Block' and 'No' in the 'Who are you looking for?' Single Males category. Yes, SLS says SMs can't IM you (I've gotten several IMs over the years from 'straight' guys who see my profile and want to play away from their wives!), but SMs should be able to see the profile and see the 'meter' for SMs is zero and get the hint that they are not potential playmates. I have run across several profiles like this (I'm looking at one right now), and the site will let me send them mail, though I would not attempt to propose a tryst with them as they are clear about their preferences. However, currentrider, when I attempt to see your profile, I am blocked, what gives?

I agree that it seems really dumb of SLS to equate zero interest with "I want them blocked". And that changing the interest level to "a little" in order to solve this problem can only lead to confusion.

So why can I see some profiles with zero interest in SMs but not others?

Maybe it just works with couples? Maybe single guys have to have one segment on the bar section for single males, so other guys can contact them for non-sexual purposes.

SLS admins, can you shed some light on this?

I have several of the quick replies set up for the inevitable messages that you end up getting from people who aren't compatible for one reason or another.

They probably get hit up by a lot of gay, bi or bi-curious men which can be annoying. It happens to me who clearly states that I have no desire to meet gay, bi or bi-curious men so I can feel where they're cumming from like one of the posters indicated below.

I'm not sure that all single guys realize that by not indicating interest in men, that SLS prevents other single men from viewing their profiles. As someone else wrote, I think SLS needs to change that, or clearly indicate that it works this way when you are setting your interest levels.

Though I am 100% straight, I do not block single guys. Quality guy friends are important and earlier writers addressed that well.

I've had a few bi men approach with interest (even though I clearly state that I'm 100% straight near the top of my profile!), but when I've replied with no interest, I had no more contact from them.

As far as the current conflict of the indicator bar showing interest, when I don't have interest in playing with guys, I have the following statement very near the top of my profile: "I am 100% straight and do not play with single guys. I have one segment on the bar section for single males, so my buddies can contact me. We don't play with each other but will do threesomes with a lady."

I would think that is pretty clear.

Oh, sorry I neglected to mention the disclaimer....we are very aware that not all single males are interested in gang bangs or group, some are just looking for 3-some with a couple, 1-1 with a lady, a girlfriend, or a swing partner and friends.

We all are entitled to play the way we wanna play!
