Also, out in the real world (i.e. not this forum), the distinction between "open" and "poly" isn't black and white for most people. I know a lot of people who use the term "open" to describe the process of seeking other partners. Once they have those partners, they might slide the label toward "poly," but while they are dating around to find other partners, they call it an open relationship.
You can tag your profile poly so as to make sure poly people come up on your quiver. I said that SOME people have a distinctions between poly and open and stick to that when looking for people who are like minded to date. Some means not all. I asked if she had thought of that with them. Asking might yield and answer also. How is that unfair to say? Fairness didn't come into what I said I don't think.
