I had this crazy idea and read forum guidelines and it says there, that you're not allowed to post your age or any other personally identifiable information about yourself, so they aren't really allowed to ask about people's age anyway.
I blocked my mailbox for a while for these reasons, then friends on here were complaining about it, so I re-opened it- sure enough , took only few hrs to get moron messages. Block/report them and lock your message box is all I can suggest as it s never ending. ...
A sad truth of modern social media is that if developers don't take it for granted that they need extensive user tools to customize experiences & block unwanted interactions, then their product/community is going to be a hostile environment to women.
Twitter is a horrible environment for abuse, but as far as I can tell it's still got better options than skimble does. The only reason it's not worse here has nothing to do with the design of the app & seems to be only because this is a relatively small community. There is a report abuse email available for skimble but that is really very incomplete. The basic choice of 'go private' or 'endure unwanted msgs from creeps' with no middle ground is ridiculous, and detracts from genuine user experience, primarily for women.
Hopefully someday we can expect better from men on the internet but until then, every social app should have multiple methods of dealing with the inevitable behavior women face everywhere online, and like so many others, skimble seems to have dropped the ball on this.
