I'd like to see OkCupid institute a minimum word count for sending a message. Or at least have it be a requirement you can enable in your own profile; someone cant send an initiating message unless its over a certain word count.
I am as direct as a T-Rex with 'roid rage and about as subtle. It isn't intended to cause upset, I just prefer to talk plain. There are plenty of other people here who do the nice, polite thing much better than I can. I'm what you'd call a "problem dinner guest."
