Response rate drop

I am a both buyer and seller at Fiverr. Few days ago, I requested a gig with instruction file. One of these instructions is that I won’t reply to any request that doesn’t have a certain word to make sure the applier read the full instructions. Unfortunately, by applying this, my response rate suddenly dropped down. How come the buying profile affects the selling profile. Is this something to fix please

By applying means that you didn’t reply to certain people then yes your response rate will be dropped.
I think it only dropped if someone asked you first time and you don’t reply it.
