I Feel Like a Pervert Due to Ep's New Privacy Restrictions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25 People

    Eek!

    This happens a few times. I see a post, comment, story or experience that someone makes that catches my eye. I go to look at their profile to check out the kinds of experiences they have, and I'm met with the big pink message going "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" and I...

    Meeooow...I'm On the Loose.

    I feel like a predator everytime that freakin' red box shows up. My only consolation is the little "you have not been specifically blocked" item. If it weren't for that I'd say I'd entered the realm of pervert-dom. LMAO ;D

    I Didn't Know This

    I didn't know I couldn't look at a minor's profile. I thought the person had a general block of their own wishes. Wow, EP protection comes into play! (No pun intended!)

    I wish the EP iPhone App was better. It's just not very good. Slow, clunky and makes you think you've got a new message when you haven't. Anyone else having the same problems?
