DCHS etiquette

I am curious what other people think: Suppose a couple would like some privacy in one of the pools, shower, or indeed any area of DCHS in the creek near the pools. Suppose a single guy just hangs out near them and will not respond to innumerable hints that they would like some time alone. Suppose this goes on not for minutes but for a few hours, in fact the better part of the day, when there are many other areas for the single guy to venture off to and give the couple some peace. Now, I realize that there are a lot of single guys who go to the springs for their only chance to see naked females, and in their view they should be allowed to ruin the couple's chance to have any privacy for the entire day, since the springs are "free" and they have as much a right as anyone to ogle the woman's breasts and hang around hoping the couple will eventually ignore his presence and give him something mildly juicy to watch.

If it were me, and I was at the springs alone, and if I got even the slightest sense that a couple really wanted some quality time by themselves, and especially if I had already spent an hour or so in the spot, my own sense of etiquette would cause me to leave the couple to their privacy and find another spot. In fact, I would do that after just a couple of minutes, since I don't like to spoil people's days just to get off on my own selfish pleasure.

But what does everyone else on this forum think?

Again, I know that single guys whose primary purpose of going to DCHS is to look at or hopefull talk to naked females, will have one response to this question, but doesn't simple courtesy and etiquette mean that we should try to give each other space if it is clear that the other person wants it?

Of course, if the couple gives off no indication that they would like some privacy, or in fact chat back with the single guy and indicate they like to socialize, it is a different matter. But what of couples who give off very strong hints and body language that they would sure like just a few minutes to themselves?

FYI, this is what the Naturist Society issues as Rule 1 in their brochure on DCHS etiquette:

" Respect other people’s privacy. Many are
at the hot springs for quiet time. Please refrain
from shouting. Don't monopolize a person's
time unless the welcome mat is out.
Recognize when you are unwelcome
"


And here is another "Rule 1" from the scenic hot springs web site:

Rule # 1

Respect for others. We go to the springs to escape the stresses and pressures of a crowded, urban existence. We go to relax and enjoy the therapeutic joys of mineral-rich hot waters. It is not unlike soaking in your bathtub at home, locking out the days distractions and letting your mind empty of problems. The byword of hot springs is tranquility and you should endeavor not to disturb the tranquility of fellow soakers. Interaction in the pool should be low-key . . . not high-energy.

Rowdiness and partying are out of place in the pools. So is the boom-box and loud music. We want to hear the flutter of birds in the nearby trees . . . we want to 'hear' the quiet with our minds. That is why we drove miles from the city to escape the pressures and noise of modern civilization."
