So why is it so acceptable to just ignore people

I have sent out several e-mails, not just here but on other sites as well. I have been courteous, polite and genuine. Yet, I only get a response from about 5% of those I send anything to. I know that many women get alot of e-mails but a simple quick reply of "no thanks" is not too much to ask. My wife has an account here and she gets a lot of e-mails, sometimes too many for her to personally respond to every one. But, She has responded to the vast majority of men that have written her. (the first couple of days she was overwhelmed by lots of e-mails and missed a few) Even those that are rude to her get a response of "hey, thats no way to speak to a lady"
Now as a standard member I may not be able to respond to a wink, but I have certainly responded to everyone that has sent me an e-mail.

5% Response is'nt too bad considering only 10% of the people on this site are real and interested in actualy meeting and the rest are afraid take the next step or are one of AdultFriendFinder's many fake profiles

We sometimes ignore mails that blatantly disregard what was written in our profile.

on occassion i miss some, simply due to time and they cycle out before i get to them or i somehow overlook them. But i usually reply back to all of them, even if it's just "sorry, i think we're looking for different things".

whoa! deja vu... i wrote almost these exact words somewhere else recently.....

I know what you mean. I'm still trying to find out why it's like pulling teeth getting people to respond to my blog posts.

Emails are a whole different story. My first emails to people on here usually just include a question about something in their profile of in their blog.

for the record, this is one of the b.s excuses many F's on AdultFriendFinder will use for why they don't reply to emails.

"Just show some interest in ME, not just my picture."

If they DO respond to my initial email, it's usually with a comment about how they won't correspond with anyone without seeing a picture first. Kinda ironic, huh?

Sometimes, being ignored is better than being lied to.

Any response is appreciated. I answer all mails or replies I get,even if someone is saying 'no.....' Doesn't take much time to type a quick reply and have made a few good friends here from the polite people who did reply. I will agree though that there are too many fakes, the amount of ladies who just want money from you is becoming annoying.
Still, the good few here make the site worthwhile.
