    Default Our SLS IM log was deleted!

    I kept our SLS IM log intact for future reference. However, last week, I noticed the log was deleted. Does this have something to do with the Congressional law that affected Craigslist?

    We are lifetime members. If SLS is going to change the terms of service, they should tell us. This is why we are not on Facebook—they do things without consent.

    We as well. They seem to have preserved the last couple of weeks of exchanges, in our case going back to about 23 March.

    I'm a little confused. Are you saying the same thing has happened to you in the past?

    They have indeed changed your terms of service, note that there are only a limited number of rooms, you can’t create new ones yourself any longer, email capabilities of guests have been reduced and so forth.

    What do you mean by rooms?

    Ours is gone, too! -- And we were in the middle of setting up a first-time meet with a couple for this coming weekend!

    Do you know how difficult it is in this Very Conservative, very rural area to find a compatible couple????? We've not met with anyone in almost 2 years -- that's how hard it is! Craigslist is gone, and now the history we had developed with a potential new couple on SLS is also gone. (And before you ask -- no, we don't know how to contact them any other way!)

    What are we supposed to do about this? What point is this new law supposed to make? Who is it protecting? Can we opt-out!????

    Can you not just send an SLS message to them? Perhaps they could reply to you using SLS messages.

    But, of course, if either you or they are non-paying members you would not be able to use SLS messages.

    Sadly, We're lifetime members of SLS -- and I believe they were 'free'.

    I had similar on SDC last year if it makes anyone feel better. It was due to some glitch rather than law of any kind but a chunk of history was just gone without notice, and the notifications stopped working for a week or so, it nearly ruined a very hot date. I prefer switching to a more convenient way of communicating early but of course you have to establish mutual interest first.

    I can see the day when Lifestyle websites are banned. Plan B?

    For the record Lifetime paid member. We were free for a longtime working up the courage. I believe many of the free members are in the same boat. Finding a way for them to stay connected is important.

    To contact non paying members.
    I believe they can still see messages just not respond.
    1. set up a "SpecialatGmail" account just for this type of thing.
    2. Send them the message "SpecialatGm@@@@" to reach us as you are not able to reach us via SLS.
    3. Take it all off site.

    This will sort of hurt SLS as the place to go to connect. It does require paid members to initiate the contacts. Maybe SLS will get their legal team to work harder to find the path that avoids the FOSTA trap.

    The other day I could read a post but not answer it in a test profile that I set up. I just checked again and you are correct.
    The SUBJECT line does show up though.
    Perhaps that message I suggested could be adjusted to fit in there?

    I know this is a stop gap.
    I also think that many people who are just beginning to explore are going to be shut out unless some work around is found.

    Not sure why so many people refuse to pay for SLS. What does it cost, $49? I am sympathetic to the plight of those less economically advantaged than we are, but if you want to participate in this hobby, you may have to participate in (minimally) underwriting the means of communication.

    We have little interest in meeting free members. It shows a lack of commitment.

    We are pretty much in agreement accept for one thing. There is a point in this for most of us when we are not quite sure if we want to jump in.
    I know we hovered around the event horizon fo a few years.
    We made contact with a few people, most of whom were in the same boat that we were.
    We finally met one couple who pretty much oversaw out stepping into the water.
    While we have not as yet played with them they did ask some pertinent questions and gave us the courage to proceed. We have been active with others. Playing with our "sponsors" almost feels incestuous.
    That was the last FREE contact. Decision made and time to ante up.
    Lifetime paid members since.

    I think there is both room and a need for the Free sample area in both the profile searches and starting to communicate in this community..

    Ok, that’s fair if you are newbies and unsure. Keep in mind, that as moderately experienced swingers,our red flags are free members and people who have been on the site for more than 6-12 months and have no certs from individuals or couples (as opposed to certs from a party or event).We are also on the lookout for males posing as couples, a frequent event.

    That's ... Odd. At least to us. We purposely do not 'do certs' (give OR accept), unless asked -- and we never ask, ourselves -- because we expect discretion from everyone. We make it a point in our profile on SLS to say we won't 'kiss and tell', nor do we want to advertise whom we may have met or played with.

    Until 'swinging' or 'open marriages' are the norm, or no longer grounds for termination of employment for some people on 'moral turpitude' grounds, we consider a large-ish number of 'certs' a red-flag in our searches.


    [Edit: spelling corrections. Also, it's 'whom', not 'who'.]
