I want to add some more to my previous review. I have a POF setting that prevents people from messaging me unless their message is 50 characters in length. I thought that would stop the sexbots from emailing me. But I just got a message from a sexbot and the message was "Hey there! Even when I click on "Who's Online", I see at least sexbots. I think that POF is officially dead. Markus must have gotten greedy and decided that he could make more off of sexbots and die hard loyalists than before when it was just upgraded members.
Someone needs to make a new dating site because POF just isn't what it was before with the nonstop sexbot spam that Markus allows. I want to add more to my previous review that I posted a couple of days ago. Just today, I have already received six POF emails from sexbots. I will probably get some more before the day is through.
Also, I mentioned in my previous review that I created a user script to remove crap from his website. Some of the crap that I removed involved red alert notifications indicating someone was interested in me or something. It's just a scam to trick you into spending money so you will see who was interested in you. Markus likes to pretend that he is a champion of justice, and caters to feminist types.
He lets women have empty and two-word profiles, but requires that males have three sentence profiles. It should be the same for both genders. Even though there is already a profile setting that can limit who can contact you based on gender, age, location, etc. Well if he is so high up on his horse and thinks he is such a warrior of justice, don't you think he should show some integrity?
Does this dating site really have Plenty Of Fish worth meeting? Or does free= waste of time? This POF review has everything you need to know before joining! out of the way, it's time to focus on the real meat and potatoes of your profile. POF. The Review. Editor's Summary. For those interested in signing up to a dating site, but unwilling to spend money, PlentyOfFish (POF) presents itself as a great.
Trying to con people out of money by setting up a fake "someone is interested in you" notifications is a lack of integrity. This guy doesn't have integrity. Which is why we have a dating site that is being overrun by sexbots now, despite the fact that he has been working on this site for decades and has plenty of web development experience and expertise. I never put the website or the owner down. I wanted to take advantage of the bug report and suggestion threads in the Forums.
As soon as I explained the problem on the forums, I was attacked by a group of people, mostly women. Then later, some woman was complaining about how this stranger treated her like complete crap and she can't get over it and him because she was otherwise attracted to him. It was so long ago, I don't remember exactly. I probably said something to the effect that she needed to embrace her hate and anger a bit, otherwise she will find herself in this situation again and again for the rest of her life and always be a victim.
This wannabe moderator immediately attacked me and said that there couldn't possibly be worse advice than I was giving and then he basically sweet talked her and blah, blah, blah.
I found out later that he posted a lot on the forums and signed every single one of his posts with his nickname, trying to bring attention to himself. Needless to say, he became a moderator. Markus must like self-serving douches like that. Those two aren't really complaints. But this one is. I think that if someone only wants to receive emails from people within a certain age, then they can set limitations on their profile "only interested in men from " or something like that.
It's already a profile option. But Markus one day decided to go far beyond that and you immediately can never ever message or receive messages from someone outside of your age range. I just disagree with that totally. Not only that, but for many years any POF profile I create has to have a certain number of characters usually around sentences, but women's profiles have no character limit I know of because I often see completely empty or two-word profiles like "Ask me". And I live in a small farm town of 4, in the Midwest. I moved here from Columbus, Ohio around 8 years ago.
And I live near a small city. For many years, I would say the vast majority of women's profiles were real. But now it has been taken over by sexbots. First it was one full search page full of sexbots that got deleted within hours.
It features many of the features and functions of other apps all in one place. It's all just a bunch of fake profiles looking to scam you in some way or another. Meet Me This functionality is similar to the swipe right or left method of viewing profiles make popular by Tinder. I can't give his profile name, even though he's, hopefully, off the site. What a bunch of crap!
Then it became two full search pages. Now it is more like full search pages of nothing but sexbots. I don't think people are spending massive amounts of time to create fake sexbot accounts to annoy him or POF users. As some said, they send you to alternate websites that they believe are also owned by Markus.
So Markus could potentially be using POF to create sexbots to farm income for other sites he created. And if not, well he should be doing a better job of keeping sexbots out. I like POF because it is a free site and it is well designed. It is aesthetically pleasing.
I mean there are some small things I don't like. Like, why would you put eye color and hair color so far apart? Why is someone's ethnicity and astrology sign in the same line? I also ended up creating a user script to get rid of some of the crap he has on the site. But overall it's a good site. My main two complaints are that he puts age restrictions where you can't see or talk to people outside a certain age range, no matter what, despite the fact that you can already restrict who can contact you like by age, location, whether they have a picture or not, etc.
And the second complaint is that he let the site be taken over by sexbots. Someone like Trudeau or Macron. POF is the best dating website out there that I know of. It is just profiles and you can tell who takes the time to actually fill out their profile or not. I've soon realized that Plenty Of Fish is posting their own fake women on their website leading you to another website they own, it's funny if you write to them and say you're fake instantly they disappear, I can sit there right over and over and over again to each fake person and instantly they all disappear, if you see a pretty sexy young woman on Plenty Of Fish it's fake.
They put that there How can one site claiming to help lonely people take advantage of them instead This site is awful. As soon as I upgraded, I already had messages in my account from bots with profile pics of scantily clad women. Half the messages said the exact same thing: It's all just a bunch of fake profiles looking to scam you in some way or another. This website should be shut down! I have had to create multiple accounts, only to find that the website utilizes shadow banning of users. Certain keywords trigger their system and then you have to change your password which leads to you being full shadow banned.
Once you are shadow banned, you still have an account, but you will stop receiving mutual matches from real accounts. The website also uses deep fake accounts which is basically bots of profiles of users who quit the website. Me and several friends came across our own profiles being used, reported them, and POF took no action to remove the profile. Nobody is off limits. One of my friends paid for a subscription and got banned outright and found out a user she spoke to reported her for being rude.
She was unbanned but then realized a week went by without any messages or likes which is impossible for females. That is when she realized she had been shadow banned. POF also dumps cookies on your computer as a fail safe in case you delete your account to circumvent the shadow ban.
They save your pictures and e-mail to add to the shadow ban list to ensure you are automatically banned or shadow banned if you delete your account and sign up for a new one. One of the issues I have with the website is the large amount of prostitution and sex trafficking that is going on. The same accounts keep popping up no matter how many times they get reported and deleted. This is pretty ridiculous that sexbots can get through and use the website more than real people with respectful, kind, and engaging messages.
I am writing this review now that I reside in Los Angeles. In I met a woman and everything was pretty much legit. I have received emails from Egypt, Nairobi, Kenya and Chad! All of the Threads started out innocent enough After all of the "African" women attempt to schmooze me with "near-naked" probably stolen pics and promises of "the best female companionship I will ever need for the remainder of my adult life" Does POF block these scammers?
Perhaps not so lucky for other gullible men and women. I have been told that I am a very attractive man I am very humble so it's very hard for me to state this. Five Years ago I got many replies from women. In the grocery store I have set up an account here 4 times. The first two times my profile was deleted with no reasoning whatsoever. The third time my account was hacked by my ex-boyfriend, whom I met on that site.
The fourth time, I was deleted yet again with no explanation or reasoning. I attempted to contact "support" several different times, in all of these events, with no avail.
When my account was hacked, they could have cared less. They wouldn't even delete the profile. Yet, they will delete my legit account for no reasoning whatsoever. This site is full of fake people, perverts, inmates, bots. There really isn't much for security for people's information, profiles or login. I will never use this site again. The one man I met there is a wanted felon for felony stalking in a different state. The site failed to verify any info and so did he. Steer clear of this site.
It is shady and unsecure. There are far better sites to be on and there is the real world. I must confess POF customer service, is a joke. I've called 3 times, all I want is an email to reset my password, and my account activated. They responded, we have filed a complaint. Well Hell thanks for nothing. Experian Fraud department 1 Equifax Fraud department 1 Many years ago when it first started out, it was not too bad, and it was FREE, unlike today it's no longer free anymore.
Being on the site a couple of times with full profiles and photos, I got squat from the site, except for 16 females who saw me on "Meet Me" and I was notified they all wanted to meet me. Once or twice a week I'd get an email stating I had new Matches! These people were "not" my matches, not anything even close to what I would date if met them on the street! I mean freaking ugly old ladies, over-weight, huge bodies, 74 years old! That's not a Match folks! I was stunned, and amongst the abundance amount of fake profiles, POF does not delete them and uses these fake profiles to advertise out to you to buy their premium account by having these fake profiles say they like your notifications, but you cannot view who they are unless you buy the membership.
Aggravations users get having to deal with all this nonsense and POF supports it rather than taking a moral step to temporarily shut down and restructure their dating app. Now, about that card info I received, I screenshot the message with her profile, and I reported it and 12 hours later, message and profile disappeared, but I also messaged that scammer they were reported so more likely the scammer blocked me. But I feel bad for whoever card number info belongs to and they have to suffer money loss damage. Their company supposedly is located in Canada, you can easily look up the address, but if they were in my city, I'd be knocking on their door to have a goood talk.
POF has the audacity to charge for upgrades but no common sense to use a verify system to verify people who sign up?? A simple submit your Drivers License with your photo would do wonders for this site. Instead anyone can sign up with fake photos. There are 's of Nigerian scammers and men in prison who use this site. Not only is this site full of fake profiles, scammers and men in prison but it's full of racists too. Ladies you are better off talking to men in grocery stores or at church or even speed dating.
Get off the internet. You will never find anyone "real" and when you do these guys on these internet dating sites don't ever want to meet offline. The type of guys online stay online for years and years until they age out. I had my POF account for a long time. Recently I reported a guy who kept sending me rude mails. Next thing I know, I can't log into my account. My account got deleted without any explanation!
I made a new account with the same info to see I really got kicked off and I was. I was able to make a new account. I get kicked off and he gets to keep his account? This site has many rude guys so I will be deleting my new account and staying away. POF is a waste of time. POF is really Plenty of Dogs. She then contacted POF and lied to them, had my account permanently closed.
She posted fake photos and fake information and they backed her. I had 2 women I really wanted to meet and now I have been cut off from them. This site is NOT worth being on for free and if you pay to use it you are a fool. I was completely happy with POF. I had met somebody we've been talking. Then all the sudden I'm blocked. Will let me update my password. I tried on my laptop computer friends computer I did nothing one blocked one really crude guy. Why got a new account to find said guy able to find and message then deleted again.
What a waste of time and effort. If you are deleting people we should have a right to know why and if it was a petty person who got hurt they should grow up. Don't start with this company if you might change your mind halfway through. I wrote a tiny bit of profile, then decided not to continue. But POF still send me regular emails promising matches when I have given them almost no information. I have tried the unsubscribe route many times but you just get led in circles with endless questions to persuade you to carry on.
How do I make them stop??? Had an account on there a couple of years.
