It seems that spring is in the air and hospitality club is not an exception. 

Unceasing stream of "flirting" messages each day fills my mailbox (the smartest
ones write me directly to my e-mail or add in MSN). I already established my
personal nomination "the letter of the day" - for the most horny, unlogical and
weird letter. I'm not against intercultural friendship and communication, but
these guys definitely not looking for a friendship!!! They dont have any common
intellectual interests with me and usually start conversation with "Do u have a
webcam?", "I want to know u more/better!" or "can i see more photos of u?" (3
most popular beginnings of conversation). Cool, eh? 
Even after i wrote down in my profile "pls, no flirting spam - hc is not a
dating service!" i continue to receive all this crappy messages from the males
all other the world. Btw, it was more or less understandable when i was "spamed"
by males from eastern and asian countries, but now Europe almost outrun both
Asia and East. 
What the hell is wrong?! Can u see naked photos of me in my profile? No! And u
know, why? There are no naked photos of me in my profile!!!  Why then all this
males continue to spam me EVERY day?! And they even dont consider it as a spam.
"I just wanted to talk with u!". Awesome.

Sorry for such angry post, but it's really not funny anymore. All this crap
really distorts the idea of hospitality club for me. It's not what i expected
when had signed this community.

Btw, i wonder if moderators will delete this post according to Forum Rules
paragraph #3. But i'm not talking about particular case - it's general
situation. And if we want to make HC better place, we should discuss negative
aspects also.

So, lets state the question this way (actually it's question to females
hc-members): how you deal with this situation?

@telle2006 : about the update of your picture that doesn't seem to work :

I had the same problem I thought, but it turned out all the other people could
see my new picture, it was only because the "cache" of my computer didn't update
(something with my settings in Windows Explorer).

So please try again. You could always give me a sign through the HC message
system when you have uploaded your new picture, and i'll mail you back to tell
you which picture I can see.

Hope the problem will then be solved.

Thank you Frank,

I noticed also that I can see my new picture in this conversation, but not in
profile.
So I started to wonder too, and now I read your message - so that must be it.

Still could not change my pic in profile for me, so maybe I check out my
computer settings...

Problem solved.
thank you for the hint Frank !

It was only that I had to empty my temporary internet files etc.
Simple as that. So if anyone has the same problem...

Now at least my figure in my profile is so small that no man should get any
thoughts of it :-))

But anyway, it is a pity that Catflower should look 'ugly' in her profile to
avoid spam. Life is too cruel sometime.

to: Maria and Wokzilla -- the fact that I take offense at these ads is not the
point... the point is that since HC is not a dating service, then adverts
specifically about dating are inappropriate to this forum, no?

if i remember right u can not influence the ads... its based on the written down
site content. so, most of the ads are about travel and dating (defnitly the most
used words here) - fits quite good, or? i just wonder why there never was an ad
about party :-)

Several members have complained to me about horny members - still they only
visit members of opposite gender... It seems they're more PROUD than BOTHERED.

IF it's a problem - remove the sexy photo and the contact info (HC offers
excellent spam-free mail-service).

I think MANY members are satisfied with HC as a dating-service. I'm not. Yet.

HC not a dating service? i didn´t know this. what comes next? Maybe: LIFE not a
dating service!
.
Mossbeard, with all the dating features on this site, your still not happy?
Well, no wonder, obviously you didn´t even follow the most basic rules that are
listed under "more datings, please!!!". but, no problem, i will give you
advice:
FIRST: take the chicken out of your beard, not all people like chicken nowadays.

SECOND: try to cut your beard. in your profile your face is hardly to recognize
behind your beard (btw. you need a lawn mower for this. probably you don´t have
one since it works with petrol or electricity and you lack both, i can feel it
clearly. you can use a scythe as well).
THIRD: on your profile deactivate the smell HC feature that is still working as
beta version, but it´s already working. so if other people on hc will not
benefit from your organic deodorant your dating satisfaction is guaranteed!
.
For me HC works fine as dating service, but anyway, everybody is allowed to use
the dating site he or she wants.

by the way, what is the difference of a dating message and a message asking for
hospitality? i mean, what criteria do you use for deciding that a mail is dating
spam?

@everyone
we might be reinventing the wheel here!!!!!

what standards have we set ourselves for normal relationships? If I find a girl
attractive, God help me, I dont stop at telling her. Its normal, isn't it?

but hey, its a love hate relationship. We live in such a world. catflower, I'm
sorry you had your bad times. but heck, spamming is as old as the hills. Men and
women do NOT think alike. Someone help me here. Is it biological or simply that
we use the wrong side of our brains for the wrong actions?

mud slinging is such a dirty word. but would we like a world without it? I like
my morning jolt of reality; yeah I get hit by women too. haha. no big deal. but
i deal with it. its part of being who we are. guys call me all sorts of nice
things and not such nice things. deal with it. its a thing we call LIFE.

sexuality and human behaviour are like the two apples that fell off a tree.
Newton ate one, burped and went to sleep. when the other apple fell, he asked a
question which gave us the best law of physics. 

catflower, u might see a lot of positive things in life too.... if u could look.
NOT being a woman hmmmm I just cannot help. But guys, take a stride. Life is
about waking up and not falling asleep

Come on people,
a girl's (any) picture is of no importance in this case,
she can look just average, she may put a pic of a monkey’s arse in her profile
but when she gives her ids, she will be called, because she is ‘available’
and to (at least try to) have a chat with her is just a mouse click away. Then
he would come up with a question .. do you have a picture ?
If she is hot and stated no ids, well, she might be only 5’ search away, but
that's toooooo far away, and he wonders if she is worth that effort anyway, or
the effort of writting a nice personal message to her, or for God sake, the
effort of reading her profile ?
(If he does write a nice email, well, he deserves a reply :-)

This kind of guys are everywhere so bear with it. 
I apologize if they have had some other divine thoughts instead.
:-D

The fact that Catflower also seems to be both cute and interesting doesn’t
really matter here, because I am sure that these guys don’t read profiles at
all.

Comming back to ads : as I stated before you can find ads of any kind in any
newspaper ot TV station and it is always said that the newspaper or the TV
station is not responsible for the content of the ads. The same goes to HC.

well , hi everyone
so i am a latino brazilian guy, 'n i know how it is ...we have kind of blood hot
and always horny (of course in the right way) but i am really upset how ppl from
hc(not all) still keep this stupid attitude to strike girls with words and other
forms of insultin.
i ve seen good things here on hc club,and made good friends and i know
unfortunatelly
mainly girls suffer this kind of abuse..guys u all believe some boys have send
emails for me and ask stupids things thta i dont need to say here.....is it
usual guys to receive e-maisl..?? or jsut girls..i know there are lots of guys
who receive spams as well but it is perhaps shameful say it loudly for
everione...but i dont think this way.. i know what i like ....and i just ignore
such spams and when i use the chat some guys either try to talk to me in other
way ..i am sure u all get what i mean.. and i think it's is stupid..but as the
club is for openminded pll and respectful as well.
i dont care at all..i just think girls have to be careful with guests just
it....it's my viewpoint...cheers

its screwed up, but i honestly don't think changing your photo will be a
solution, it may curb some of the flow but you'll still be nailed with the
stuff. i agree with dan as usual.

My friend is travelling at the moment, using HC to find accommodation. Just one
problem; all female hosts wants to date him. A couple of months ago he wrote
this:

"Hi, I'm in A, staying with a beautiful girl.
Just one problem; she has only one room, and only ONE MATTRESS!! I'm in
celibacy for 16 months, she is gorgeous and smart, I'm horny. Miss X too..."

Today he sent this update:

"I had two girls in B. Total chaos, had to escape to the opposite gender.

5 days in C and I've got two girls here too!
After two days there was "love" between me and my host. Yesterday I went to a
party with 20 other HC-members. My dancing impressed everyone, including miss Y.
Very special she too, and I couldn't resist when she wanted to kiss.
Today we had sex in a staircase behind a mosque - while they were shouting their
prayers all over the city... Crazy crazy, lucky we weren't shot by the police!
This is my favourite girl, I want to meet her again in D, I'm going there
tomorrow with my host!
I'm telling them that I love both, and they respect it..."

I wonder; when I've visited or hosted HC-women - did they expect me to "date"
them? Should I write and tell them I'm sorry I didn't?

@vikingbeard : 

very funny story, thanks for sharing it.

When I was 14 years old we used to tell these kinds of stories also.

"yeah, that girl from 6th grade is really horny, she goes with all the guys"
or
"wow, i had three older women last night, it was groovy"

Of course, when I became older these stories turned out to be wishful thinking.
I just hope for your friend that his dreams will come true.

Anyway, I'm sure everybody who reads these kinds of stories, knows that there is
a difference between :

a) when 2 people have mutual feelings on the one hand (which is a good thing
where HC doesn't have anything to say) and 
b) when one party (host or guest) 'forces' a situation (which is a bad thing of
course.

torstenphilipp said:

It's amazing and -somehow- true!

I would point out that the fact that HC is not a dating site means, IMHO, that
it's not allowed to send emails or to use the contact details of other members
for reasons different than the site purpose, mostly travels, accomodation,
friendship among different cultures and countries.

After the friendship or the meeting begins, anyone knows that the difference
between dating and meeting is very subtle.. ;)

And, as I know, it's true, happen to be a lot of couples, just one kiss, one
night, one week or even married members!

Going back to the original theme, "NOT a dating site", let's say that I never
spammed tons of girls, but sometimes I contacted guys or girls for advice or for
infos or just because their profile was interesting and nobody was angry with
me.

Torsten dude, You got me laughing again!! Whacko whacko. But yea, remember that
guy at the museum door selling tickets until like 15 minutes before closing and
he goes  OK this way in, and that's the exit: and please remember NO LOOKING    
  and this entire bunch of idiots went into the museum! haha funny story? Man oh
man. Like saying, you can go fishing but keep your worms and biers with the
farmers.

If sparks fly when two people meet, how but how could you stop that! And being
spammed by someone.... damn, I'll be so damn pleased I got noticed!

Gee..

Torsten, I'm going to miss ya in May/June but heck, keep up the good humour lad:
the world is such a stinker without laughter.

I agree with @tommato, and with @dj too !

The problem is not a problem - even for later dating stuff - if people behave as
would be polite and/or as is the primary purpose of this club.

Today again, now I really got irritated with a new msncontacting maleperson (he
was being rude and stupid, maybe himself not even quite understanding it). So
now my msn address is not in my profile anymore, it was too easily picked up. 

In fact the best people (and really very lovely they are !) I've 'met' here are
the ones who have contacted me first via HC mail or the ones I have myself
contacted for travellingtips or other non-dating purposes. 

And in my opinion @dj did get it really good..that's it probably for @catflower

@torsten, parrots have crackers to crunch. Cows eat cud. Some people eat their
words (out of circumstances) and some others, live life without any waves.

Behaviour, dating, spamming...... its all the same or what? grrrrr pffffff. Is
burping after a good garlic soup bad manners? Culturally speaking then, its
always the same path. Not the less-travelled route, Ja?

Torsten, starting a revolution sometimes doesn't take banners and such. Right?
hehehe. Do we have to say MONKEY'S LOVE BANANAS, Man? Its OK dude. The world
will learn....
