Okay, so mostly everyone on here seems to get along fine and everything is cool. And I love you all even though none of us are too close.
BUT how do I get through to some that they are just being creepy and need to take that ass somewhere else?
I'm not a mean person, but it's like when you tell them "No, you're weird.." They're like "Thanx bby!"
NOOOO STAHPPPP!!
This is bad! Bad, bad, bad! How does rejection just fly over your head like a fucking eagle and you're still saying "Aww that's cute booboo" I said you were being creepy, not cute. Can you even look up to see the huge ball of NOOO that is about to drop on that ass? I'm not a mean person, but when I straight up insult you and you're still coming at me with "<3 Wynnyboo, shmoopsie, princess, oggie, or pookie"
Go home, you're drunk.
It's not even the people I talk to on here either. They're just random people I have never seen in the forums and they are dimmer than the light left in my soul.
Is there even a block button?
I really hate the thought of hurting someone's feelings over something so silly, but you've known me for 35 seconds, where is the love?
Like I said, this isn't about anyone I actually talk to on my GB or the forums. Everyone there has been really nice so far!
These people aren't even on "my buddies" list, tehy just kinda show up trying to spit awful clingy game.
Maybe my name and personality go together..Maybe I am an ice queen. But don't tell me you love me the very first message you send. I don't love you. I don't know you.

I KNOW EVERYONE OF YOU GUYS HAS EXPERIENCED THIS.
HALP!

Is there a nice way of shutting them down for good? If I don't reply my inbox is full in 2 hours with stupid stuff like "Where did you go, booboo?" or "How long are you going to take?" And I can say something so gross like "Just took a gnarly poop, now I'm gonna go chug a gallon of vinegar and also use it as a douche while watching Fox news or CNN" And they will still be all for it! Like "That's so cute<3 *kisses*" No, stahp. You will know if I am interested. Because I will humor you. Because I like you. And I won't tell you a lie such as shoving vinegar up my lady parts to see if you catch my sarcasm.
So, what is the best way to approach this? I know you can't make everyone happy, but I seriously don't want to hurt someone's feelings, simple because they just aren't grasping the concept.

It must be rough being a girl over the internet, I've never had this happen. It's probably some one messing with you, a troll. I doubt you can tell them anything to stop. Though I lol'd at the vinegar part.

Sorry about that Wynter I won't PM you again *jk*

Anyway I'm pretty sure you can block people under Account Settings and Inbox. It has a block list so people can't PM you.

Hope that helps

It's not even that rough! I hope they are trolling me, but one of them just seems so clingy and oblivious It would be hard to believe they are kidding. I don't feed them with anger or anything. I've told them my lack of interest and was done. Then they are like "But I love you"
Um, scuse me?
Wut?
Love..me? LOOOOL
You don't even know my cat's names!
Btw I might troll you and give you some luvins now.

I'm about to go find out! Haha you're allowed to inbox me! :D
You're one of the (seemingly) normal people on here.
I just wanted friends!

Ah, I remember when I was in a voice channel for less than thirty seconds before someone there PM'd me a really touching (and creepy) love confession. Good times. People like that I don't really feel bad about blocking/shutting them down. Why are they allowed to make you feel uncomfortable but you can't break contact? Most of the time though it's just people that hold an idealized view of internet women and don't really mean harm, I try to let them down with sweet little lies like "I have a boyfriend" or "I'm not interested, but we can still be friends"

I typically don't bother responding to those sorts of people at all (not that I've encountered any on CR as of yet), as they seem to get off on any reaction they can get out of you. But then, ignoring almost everyone around me is sort of like my default state.

Blocking or reporting may be of limited effectiveness (since making new accounts is free), but hopefully they'll get the message and find someone else to irritate. Wasn't there a song called the circle of internet harassment or something in that Disney movie with all the cats?

This has never happened to me. That said I almost never get any reasonable PMs either so I guess being boring enough works for me. Blocking PMs is easy unless they're persistant stalkers who make new accounts just to avoid it.

It's because you're from Finland, no one messes with Finland.

If anything, nobody messes with Australians. You probably have a ritual where you are bitten by 500 venomous creatures to make you immune to venom and poison. Thus it allows you to live there

You just don't engage them.

We get the resistance from eating vegemite, that's the secret. That doesn't stop dropbear attacks though, nothing can survive those abominations.

I've had account before where I was harassed so I deleted my account and remade this one. I block people from PMing me if necessary
I recommend you to block them from sending you PMs
