Users may file reports of concerns they have with the site regarding allegedly inappropriate language, images or gestures made on OpenMinded. Threats of violence, apparent stalking, or any other user behavior that makes another user feel that his or her well-being is threatened should be reported not only to our Member Concern team, but also to local law enforcement agencies immediately.

  • How do I file a complaint against another OpenMinded user?

    To file a complaint, click on the “Report” link found under the offending member’s profile image.

    When you have selected the Report link, a Report Form will open in a new window. Please complete this form, detailing the alleged actions of the offending member.

    Once the form has been completed, select Submit Report. A member of our Member Concerns team will look into your situation and make contact immediately.

  • What does blocking do?

    Blocking is an action that intentionally prevents profile viewability and OpenMinded site communication between users. By default, profile details and information exchange via email between Generous and Attractive members occurs on a voluntary basis. OpenMinded cannot be held accountable for the content of information is exchanged between users.

    You can block users to prevent them from starting conversations with you or seeing anything posted on your profile.

    People you block can no longer view information posted on your profile or start a conversation with you.

    In the event that a blocked contact has that status changed by a user to Unblocked, all original account settings will apply. The unblocked contact will regain full access to that user’s profile information and will be able to re-establish contact via profile options.

    Any member can report abuse by using the Report link. OpenMinded provides users with options to report content, language, photos, or videos that they believe to be in violation of our Terms of Use.

  • How does suspension work?

    When a user is suspended, a hold is placed on all account activity. Profile details and approved photos will be saved, but all site features and other members will become inaccessible. Messages sent by the suspended user will still be received by other users, but cannot be opened by them until the suspension is lifted.
