This would fall under being discriminatory by way of ageism. However, perhaps it would be better to report these profiles as creepy if they do not seem to get the hint if you tell them they are being creepy. If enough people report the profile, it would be great if they could be deleted by the Admins for being harassing. Because you're right, those kinds of messages that seem so copy paste get annoying and are creepy, I like to call them out on it so they stop, but its pretty much pointless. They respond as if they're throwing a temper tantrum. Plus it doesn't stop people from putting lower ages like they do already, or none at all.
Again, the problem isn't the app, and filtering isn't gonna do anything but make people find ways around it. Instead of just filtering or blocking people, either report them if they're being scary, or tell them that they're being creepy if they are. Hopefully eventually they'll get the hint to change and try a more respectable approach. Its only through honest communication that things can change. Some of those older guys grew up in an era where that sort of coming on to a person was the way that things were done, and to them it doesnt seem creepy. But since no one tells them that, instead just blocks them, they feel rejected for their age and never understand that if they simply changed their approach they might get a different response. Give people the opportunity to change, if they don't, then block them or report them..
