I don't know why I can't figure this out, or find any information in the FAQ, but it's bugging me. In the match list, users whom I've sent a message have the term "first contacted on [date]" under their name, and a little checkmark. The checkmark is always green, yellow, or red. I can't find any pattern to these colors, I have no idea what they mean and it's really starting to bug me. I assume red is bad in some way, but who knows.

Gah. At least you noticed they come in colours. Now I'm debating whether I should compare or just flit through remaining clueless.

How do i block someone who is abusive towards me in emails on this site?

I think that the checkmark colors relate to how often they respond to other people: green, good - yellow, rarely - red, good luck. As far as blocking people that send stuff, I think you can either Hide them, Flag their profile, and specifically block their messages too. Umm...lemme see. Inbox -> Settings -> (bottom of page) Always BLOCK these people, no matter what:. That should do it.

There's no a "OkCupid news" place on the page?

I believe FerroMancer is correct. Green indicates that they reply often, yellow indicates selectively, and red indicates very selectively. It is the same color system they use to relate this information before you contact them.

Well that clears up the color thing, I hope...
