    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...

    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!)

    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

    No I Don't And I Just Joined This Group To Say This.

    hahahhahahahaha I do not like being restricted because I am immature like they think I am just stressed there is a difference and I think everyone my age or whatever is very stressed or what but I am not at all sometimes and they should stop being ********
