I have the same problem - I never fit within their rating limits, if I do I don't fit their timebank preferences.
If I put up an open invite with a rating limit, how does the opponent respond ? and does the game get removed from the open invites list ?
If someone wants [and is able] to accept your open invite there is a link next to it saying "accept game offer".
Provisionals should be able to see the games - but they are not able to accept games that have any rating limits set. [hence there would be no "accept..." link next to them]
The games are left there until they are accepted - although the admin [I assume] remove nonsensical invites sometimes.
The easiest solution is to set your own open invites, as stated above.
This post is according to my experience and is the situation now,unless there have been any recent changes, of course
