    Just need to point out that guys without pics are often those who have had bad experiences from others on Grindr like being stalked or a jealous ex etc aide from the usual.

    Also, there are some drop-dead gorgeous intelligent guys around and (yes I've met the odd one) they withhold their pics because they are looking for a deeper more meaningful connection and are fed up with people who just see their looks and are after their bodies without consideration of their minds.... as one put it to me: " I know I can pull and I get swamped with a pic but if I don't put up a pic and hold off I know the other person is genuinely interested in me as a person if they are still chatting to me after 15 minutes without seeing my face, body or ****."

    Keep up the NPNC thing by all means, but it's your funeral!

    "March 05, 2020 00:29" and "May 05, 2019 07:58 "

    Three moronic posting. from saddos looking for racism so they can virtue-signal.

    This is a dating site. Ethnicity brings with is questions of physical characteristics that are a turn on or tuirn off, cultural aspects that may make it impossible to progress. The ability to filter out those one is not interested in is mutually beneficial rather than wasting time introducing and for that reason the more information the better.

    Many people don't post up pics and some don't want to send them. They have their reasons and I respect them. I'm not bothered by race but I respect the fact that others personal tastes are raise relevant and oh yes, you bigots who claim that it is racist to need to know ethnicity need to take on board that on a site like this it is very often somebody seeking a race other than their own.

    I do not agree that it should be a required field but it really helps and the reason for putting you ethnicity in is simply not to have your time wasted by eliminating the uninterested from even messaging you.

    It's that simple.

    What a moronic comment from "March 05, 2020 00:25"

    I get where the proposer is coming from.If you are so besotted by inventing racism to virtue signal yourself even if it obstructs others in their search to find someone compatible then you need to get out more.

    The reason for specifying nationality is bleeding obvious. Different countries have different cultures and laws and degrees of tolerance as well as political issues and some countries might be a barrier to getting involved with someone.

    If you are worried about being filtered out by someone's "hate" then I can assure that that is a very real problem for you but their hate would be based not upon considerations of race or nationality but upon your toxicity.

    I agree. Firstly you can pinpoint someone easily by clicking on other profiles to chase down location. Secondly this intruding in others profiles to see where someone else is is not fair on them

    I don't give a toss either way because people are getting overdosed to the point of not noticing by all the hype and overkill. We all know it's there and what to do and if you don't want to hook-up then a location based hook-up app is a rather funny way of going about it.

    Also this overkill is making people switch off in the real world when it really matters.

    So if one person doesn't put their weight in and another leaves their height out they will never see each other. Sounds a bit silly. I put stuff in my my profile that I'm not bothered if the other person does not put in theirs. Does not mean I'm not interested.

    Err yes for your own message box but not for the other persons. My message box is my property and (legally) what you send me is my property and you have no right to destroy it any more than you have to break into my home to retrieve a letter you sent me.

    A criminals charter. They already block you when they realise you are on their case because they know they delete the messages at your end. When you send a message it becomes the property of the receiver. The sender should NOT have the right to delete it.

    Excuse me but that along with the "disappearing" of messages when somebody blocks is is not just a criminals charter but illegal.

    Received messages are the property of the receiver. If you indulge in a postal romance and you decide to end it you have no right to access or destroy the letters you sent the other person because in law they are your property to keep or dispose of. Same with Whatsapp, kik etc.

    Likewise this ability to delete all messages and evidence of once's existence by deleting ones profile or blocking has become a godsend for the abusers and scammers. On one occasion I realised the person I was talking to was a scammer and got a pen to note down details. I asked him casually if he could swap pics with me but but before I could scroll and make notes he must have smelt a rat and deleted along with all evidence of who he was and what he was up to.

    Um leaving aside the "above your preferred age aspect" the answer is quite simple. Introduce a compulsory default whereby a profile must contain the persons age and their age range. When that is done you can then have a setting, default or optional, whereby only those within your age range can message you. You can even hide your own age and age range because people will only be able to see mutually compatible profiles.

    I might add that rather than being draconian or discriminatory, blocking those outside of age ranges is a help because it eleminate pursuing those who will not be interested in the end.

    The answer to this is spiffingly cool.

    1) Make it compulsory to put in your age and your age range.

    2) Fix Grindr so that everyone outside of your age range (can be or) is automatically blocked from those whose age range they fall outside of.

    This will ensure that when anyone logs on EVERYONE on their page is both within their age range and vice versa..

    Hows abouts that then.

    I don't like the block idea because many youngers will often step out of their age range to experiment. I got it on Gaydar a lot, teenagers whose age range fell twenty years below mine feeling kinky *****.

    Far better to have a compulsory field of age range to fill in then we can all be flexible yet know the other person limit.

    Gotta admit though that many off us oldies are creepy and can suddenly "turn" like if you are young a conversation that starts with "You're cute" can turn rather suddenly to "You've got a lot to learn."

    Bad idea. You'll just get more lying. Far better to make ones age range compulsory to show on ones profile which saves those too young or too old from firing blanks

    What a silly thing this is. A screenshot can just as easily be snapped by another phone but (i) if you sent a pic or postit on the world wide web you cannot complain and if somebody takes one and it gets back to you that they did you are powerless.

    "other sites prohibite certain words to fight drugs dealers, prostitutes and thieves. Why Grindr doesn't put more energy in this prevention ?"

    Because they find new words just as they have instantly found a new symbol to replace the crystal symbol.

    I'm afraid this is the Grindr equivalent of the "legalise cannabis" argument but it does not work because, as many do anyway, they simply don't say what they are up to then ask for money or try to sell 420 after you'd spend ages talking to them plus they just pop up again with different phone numbers.

    Far better to legitimise them on condition the prestate what they are up to thus giving others the opportunity to pre-block them en-masse otherwise they will continue to waste peoples time by chatting them up then asking for money at the last moment.

    @ Ray:-

    "It isn't the same as any other job, it's turning intimacy into a commodity. That legitimises treating human beings with contempt, even those of us who want nothing to do with fux trade."

    Your sickening bigotry is beyond belief.They are not interested in intimacy nor are those who pay them. You are so ignorant that you do not appreciate that payment is an acknowledgement that is a PRE-agreed deal with no strings or chords attached. Clearly you fail to understand what intimacy is. As for undermining "relations in society," homosexuality and gay marriage do just that if you are focusing on what they do in a socially judgemental way. Painting your house red does too but only if there are bigots like you who want to take exception to your individuality whilst others don't give a toss either way. If you want nothing to do with trade that is your choice and if you feel you are being treated with contempt by the mere fact of others doing it then that is your problem but kindly refrain from assuming the right to speak for "all human beings" because you are fortunately in a small minority.

    If you cannot handle others having casual fux then keep off pick-up sites and if you cannot handle paying for it then campaign against nightclubs and pick up joints where the cost of a getting a one night stand is pretty well the same amount to the person paying.

    In fact, while you are about it campaign against those who pay EXTRA on Grindr and Grindr themselves for EXTRA because that is effectively people paying for fux.

    P.S. While I have no issue whatsoever with those who use the diamond symbol and those who state their intent in their profile I take issue with those who spring it on you after chatting. The latter should be stamped out but yes, but let those who are upfront continue in honesty.

    Gender/Femme shaming? I thought this was a GAY MEN'S dating app? I know from many that the issue is not women or gender but the hijacking of the App thus crowding out a fair nuber of potential profiles in a limited space.

    How about the trans people have their own site/app/space. People aren't transphobic, just ****** off at many of the limited nukber of profiles available being hijacked by hordes of trans non-gay people (as well and beggars and druggies)so we get less choice.

    The misused pronouns are self-descriptive. If someone want to describe themselves in a certain way that should be respected, especially by trans of all people!

    Dunno what the pronouns field is there for. It's idiotic. Over 95% of the users are liars by failing to post the truthful I/Me/Mine.

    You write:-

    "as a black man, Grindr is becoming more and more of a hassle than a fun app to me"

    Then:-

    "Please remove the race filter or make phrases like “Not into blacks (or Asians)” unable to go into bios."

    It would be fair to say that you are an idiot.

    If you are finding that Grindr is becoming more of a hassle than fun could you please enlighten us how it becomes less of a hassle when you find out that those who do not find you attractive for a very clear reason of identity are sucked into the hassle of mutually time-wasting contact with you with a sharp rejection at the end of it because you have some hang-up about their stating in advance that your identity falls outside of their range of sexually attractive types?

    The problem with the "one phone number" idea is that the harasser can do it from mulytiple phone numbers.
