No not really, but I had the interesting experience of reading a message sent to me from a relatively new member that asked this very question. They didnt specify why or what they wanted so badly to talk about. Just asked for my skype user name. Needless to say I blocked the person. Probably should report them too. I cant say I have even seen them respond to any of my discussions either. Do you get messages like this?

If it made you uncomfortable, by all means block them. A single message of this nature or two is not really a violation. But if it becomes persistent, or the messages start going beyond seemingly benign, by all means, report them to me and I will deal with it immediately. I have a zero tolerance policy for perverted behavior here.

People need to get a life, I never get messages like that, but we all know men are much creepier than women.

That is so creepy! I have had some messages like this. It is best to report and block and rinse and repeat because these kinds of people are all over

I did see that comment on your discussion and I thought it was kind of creepy. I would have done the same as you did.

I've had all kinds of invites, to join other sites and about my Facebook account (don't have one). One man contacted me and kept sending smiley faces with hearts I wasn't interested in being his close friend!

You did the right thing to block the user, I would have reported him also. Yes, I have weird questions from users.

I''m fairly new, so I haven't received a first message on here, but I get messages like that other places all the time. Most especially Facebook. I once had a chick message me out of the blue; she wasn't in any of the same groups as me, had no friends in common, hell she wasn't even in the same country as me. But she messaged me just to say "women are b*tches. I hate how snotty women act." Uh? Okay, lady? Cool beans?

Hmmmm. I'd certainly be completely turned off by such a person . A message about extended myLot things and friends is fine, but asking for personal info outside of here is rather inappropriate - especially when they are not even familiar to you on the myLot field. Block and report for sure - we don't need 'em here!

No, because only members I follow can send me a message and I am very selective.

I also have a stalker here, he keeps on sending me private messages asking about my personal life and other things. There were already 4 of them since I joined here . Others were reported to admin and got deleted and others were ignored.Others might join here for a personal purpose and they will never prosper.

maybe you should report the others to admin again. maybe he didn't receive it the first time.

Yes, I do. I received some private messages from some myLotters recently asking for my Whatsapp number, FB user name, etc. I'm afraid to give them my personal identity.

It seems disgusting that someone asked for your skype ID. No sane mylotter would normally do it, that fellow seems odd to me.

I'm not on Skype. But every once in awhile, I get the same number who uses Skype (not from here) call me multiple times a week. I have blocked them, but they keep calling me.

Yes, report and block. I only had one person be that creepy. He wanted me to sponsor him to come to the US. He was not a new user, but has some difficulties. He is still here from time to time, I think.
