I send out a text to everyone who messages. Saying hi my name etc my prices, services offered owo, kissing, ro, massage, protected sex etc. Postcode the prices. I say please reply to this text with what services, length of service and time you require. I get them to call half hour before coming. I think the might help but I still get idiots and time wasters. I appreciate a full reply. Hardly ever get one on adult work through auto text so I think most who email are idiots and time wasters.

The thing is, a true time waster just wants an audience, just don't give them one?

I hardley feel that I bump in to timewasters because arranging bookings is done via aw and if they dissapear no worries. They get to phone me an hour before bookings. I believe my procedure weeds out the bad ones because time wasters and effort do not mix together.

After yet another malicious timewaster fake booking, I will be doing this from now on. 

And I love Colin Robinson, but my favourite character is, of course, Nadya, or at least, Dolly Nadya.

I agree and think why give clients an opportunity to be twits? If something isn't working, sit back, re-evaluate, approach things different and then things will improve is my formula.

This is so true and it bears repeating. Not just regards TW, but for every part of our business that isn't working out. We have two choices about things that make us unhappy/annoyed:
1. Carry on as usual and accept that we're unhappy
2. Analyse what is happening and take ACTION to change

A personal example - I hate advertising on Viva Street, as I abhor their attitude to sex workers, plus the level of TW via VS is unreal, but it does bring me business. I hated having to deal with the wanky texts and calls. So I got a new phone number for viva only, put that sim in an old handset, downloaded an auto responder and now all calls and texts get an auto reply asking them to contact my main number. Genuine clients are happy to do this.

I now get all the benefits of advertising on viva (usually averages around £300-400 a week) with none of the headache. I just need to charge the phone once a week and top up the Sim £10 a month.
And me, I am not a mess, I am a wilderness, yes

It is pretty bad at the moment for texts and calls from guys stuck at home or bored at work with no cash.  I have been watching What We Do In The Shadows on BBC and my favourite character is Colin Robinson who is an energy vampire.  He feeds on anger, frustration and anxiety which he causes by winding up or boring humans. 
Recent episode showed him with ten laptops messaging people on social media, getting them angry and het up and him feeding off that.  Big smile on his face that he had found a way to feed without leaving the house!
Timewasters wind up escorts with stupid enquiries or by texting "Hey!"  or "Are you free?" or "Hi" or "I am a good looking six foot man do you want to see me?" and then text "??" when you don't reply within 2 minutes.  This gets us angry and stressed; the timewasters are feeding off that.  They could all be Colin Robinson.
So next really stupid message I receive I will challenge them and reply "Hi, I know you are really Colin Robinson"
Why don't you just block these texters? And replying is the worst thing you can do. To them any reply is a win because they literally just want a free chat. I've told time wasters to f-off and they still keep texting me trying to chat.
