Markus has no right to dictate who we can/cannot chat with

My profile was deleted not once..but twice because apparently it is against the Gods for me to either send or receive messages to any man who is either more than 14 years my junior or 14 years older (not that this older restriction bothered me). Markus is nothing but a dictator and probably suffering from small peni$ syndrome. Perhaps it's his inability to fulfil his desires that has led him to become such a bitter person. In this day and age of free speech I am appalled that I would be scrutinized by one person who feels he can make decisions for the rest of us..or at the very least sit back and judge us for the decisions that we are making. Shame on you, Markus...you really think you'll land your 'perfect relationship' while your head is up your *** Yoursweetestserendipity

I don't see what the problem is. If an 18-year old woman doesn't want to receive messages from a 50-year old man, all she has to do is to review her profile and adjust her mail messages to not receive messages from 50-year old (or any age) men.

Marcus apparently doesn't believe 18-year old women are mature enough to make that decision on their own. He should raise the membership age to 21.

POF is a sex site, make no mistake. Guys are shown a "Hottest Girls" category.

But now POF has dictated new rules like a 60 year old cannot contact a 45 year old. Women can send private pictures, men can not. Plus worse than that, deleted profiles crop up weeks later. People complain about getting deleted.

What about when you voluntarily delete your profile and months later it reappears but you have no access.

If you look good your pictures will show up elsewhere. It is a site that cannot be trusted.

markus is just a *** guy. for no reason he deleted my account for not only one or two times, i think more than six times, just after openning, for nothing..

probably i m not caucasian or what, i don't know for what.

i emailed several times, but did not get a single reply even with an explanation...

this is just a stupidity..

#655680

My account continues to get removed and I don't know what it is I've done? I contacted pr@***.com to seek answers but, have gotten no ware.

All while a local sex offender continues to keep his account?! I don't understand...

#655523

I think the changes to POF that Markus has made are great. Some people who are on POF now should sign up on a sex site.

They are giving POF a bad name with bad behaviour and thus giving everyone on the site cause for concern.

@PissedConsumer655523

I agree. Time for the pervs to hit the bricks.

Go to "rate images" on the Meet Me tab to see how many jerks upload *** pics. :p

@PissedConsumer655523

What if you just happen to like younger or older partners? That's my preference.

I'm never rude or crude, and have had a couple of good relationships stemming from POF with younger women.

Markus is in no position to judge me regarding my romantic preferences; especially considering that he looks fruitier then a nutcake in all of the pictures on his site.

Sont allow me to delete

I want to delete my account without being forced to fill out a survey. I am frustrated with this company and have no interest i have attempted on numerous occasions to delete my account and all efforts have been unsuccessful I am prepared to contact the attorney general office in NY as well as lawyers to look into class action law suits. If I want to delete my account I have a right to do so without taking a survey and the company putting loopholes into my efforts to do so!!! If I choose to leave its my right without any explanation nor difficulties implemented my said company!!

POF broke their own terms of service

Plenty of Fish.com, a dating website that I chose to pay for for extra features, broke their own terms of service one day after charging $81 to my card. No refunds! POF has a self-stated "zero tolerance policy" about posting certain types of pictures. Mine were consistent with their terms of service, just regular pictures, but they disabled my account pictures anyway, a violation of their own terms of service. I'd estimate their willful act of removing the picture service from my membership is a loss of about 75% of their level of service. A dating website where no pictures can be posted is useless. There goes my $81.

POF, according to a former user, discovered that the company has another dating site call, "simla" for selling sex. People are lured to the site by photos of members from its POF (plentyoffish.com) dating site. You can read it yourself, about the 40th post down, here:

http://www.daterater.org/general-reviews/Plenty-of-Fish

That said, they can not have your photo of POF when they can make more money using it to get me to sign up on their sex site.

Stop receiving emails for no reason

I receive new POF emails for several months with new prospects and then suddenly now (May 2013) I don't get them appearing in my email. My email address is crld413@***.com. I have an established account and wish to receive weekly emails, so why do they suddenly stop? My name is Renee LeDonne, 201A Windgate Cir, Monroe, CT 06468. Why do I have to enter at least 100 words? Today is May 5th 2013. I hope to get a quick reply to this complaint. This is ridiculous. I am getting more pissed by the minute here. Please let me know asap.

Cannot access my account.

I tried to log in to answer some mail and my account would not accept my password. When I tried to have it sent to me they said they had no record of my email address. I explained what happened to the Help, but I have not gotten a reply. It has been two days. I have contacted them several times but I have not gotten any response what so ever. What bothers me is I have been notified through my email that I have messages, but I can't log in. I have even contacted them for an explanation and asked them to reply to a different email address, but that did not work. No one can explain what happened to my account. I am really pissed

I had a sarcastic interaction with a disrespectful woman on the dating site. I was deleted and she was not. Both of us said about equally sarcastic things. Men outnumber women on the site by a huge amount. I feel I was not treated equally because of the high excess...

They can get your ip address. With modern website technology they can also tell what device you are onwhether it's a mobile or a pc.

They probably log about 4 or 5 things unique to your device. Most likely serial number or MAC address. These people are deleting profiles on purpose with automated routines that do not discriminate.

If you are a man and a woman complains about you on there, you get deleted, get blocked too many times deleted, copy paste messages deleted, create your profile too fast because you copy and paste or just type real fast deleted. There fake profiles with links to adult content, those don't get deleted because people click those and that click generates ad revenue.

I totally agree the site is completely retarded, you get deleted for no reason, even if some ugly *** is being a hater he can report you and the next day your deleted. The sites rules are so dumb and makes me so angry that i cant experience what everyone else is. .

#890926

Same!!! Wtf!!! They want business or not???

Who do we talk to?

#816918

Makes no sense, completely finished the account and behold my time is wasted. Did nothing wrong, didn't break any rules, got banned, I'm going to take the same time they wasted and use that same time to make sure people know what a waste of time this site is, MY OPINION is that its Plenty of Fish is false and misleading, its like dealing with the soup Nazi but worse, its sign up now and get banned, my time is valuable to me and they lead me to believe that this was worth my time and i don't know if its discrimination or what but i never encountered such a waste of time on the Internet.

I recently went through the process of joining pof, whilst filling in the online forms I was shocked to see on thier message filtering system that you can stop messages from bbws or people who are classed on the site as carrying " a few extra pounds ", whatever next!!...

So basically you got pregnant 7 months into dating and this guy by May 2013 took 32 months to figure out he needed to do the right thing? Good Luck with that. See you on POF as a single mom in the near future.

Marcus and his pof team eat *** for lunch

The site is designed for buns on seats. Its benificial for plenty of fish if you dont find someone on this site, so they make every effort to make sure there is constant disruption whilst using the site. If you complain, your ejected or like me banned. To be honest, Id rather any other site than this slice of garbage, designed by a guy that could not score in a brothal with thousand dollar notes hanging out of his pockets. Marcus looks like he fell from his mums backside and instead of a tap on his *** by the doctor, the doctor punched the *** out of his mum.

POF plenty of fish won't delete my account

My GF and I both have tried to delete our accounts off of POF to no avail. We both continue to get unwanted email and found our profiles to still be available to anyone on the site. I'm over it now so I'm going a different route to get my account deleted, removed, canceled, obliterated... Anything! It's just obnoxious to keep getting "look at your new matches... " when you Have repeatedly deleted your account via POFs "delete your account here" link!!!! They suck cow toes in this department!!!! Their claims of millions of users should be millions of virtual hostages!!!!

Plenty of fish

Plenty of fish is the worst dating service provided on the internet. The women don't want to chat. The woman won't return any messages. This is a rediculous site if a man is looking for a woman. It is really sorry that anyone should have to use this site to get a date. I guess the women are just to good for a real man. They just wanna play games and thats all. A word of advice guys, don't use this site.You are better off just looking on your own. Do not trust this site. If you wanna find a woman that's worth a ***, try a different site. You get what you pay for. Remember, this is free, so it's no wonder the site is as bad as it is.

@PissedConsumer864021

Hardly a sane balanced view. No wonder men get tired of women on POF.

What an over reaction by a woman who clearly has significant psychological issues needing urgent treatment. I always wondered why so many women seemed to have negative image of men - now I know where the problem lies.

This dumb man-hater is so ignorant, she can't even see how her attitude continues to propagate the poisonous hatred she has for men. What a shame there are so many women like this on POF.

They keep deleting and blocking me no reason

i did nothing wrong on singlesnet, same goes for plenty of fish, i think they don't want a real guy who isn't a player/cheater on their *** sites. it is just pure ridiculous and if you think I would pay for their *** sites you have really got to be on some kind of ***. *** bunch of folks...be smart and spread the word, they don't care about their customers, all they care about is $$$...thanks for reading my complaint. i are pissed...they want a bunch of girls on there who pay big bucks for their service, or I shouldn't even call it that, and they don't want them to find someone, that would mean they wouldn't need their joke of a dating site anymore. purely ridiculous. i am sick of them. i think i will start my own site that is way more user friendly and "truly" 100% free... which they all claim they are, they are a bunch of liars and thieves praying on people. thanks for reading.

Plenty-of-Fish clearly has no intention of creating a genuine and good user experience. They are all making money. That's it. The site is full of fake memberships (some which look suspiciously created by the site owners) and women who are attention-seekers, or jaded older women holding out for the perfect hunk.

If you complain about it, they will just delete your membership and if possible, ban you from creating a new one (although, why would you???)

The Forums are clearly biased towards man-bashing (not a surprise considering the moderator is a man-basher herself)

If you are looking for a serious relationship, go to a real site, or better yet, just go out into the real world and do it the old fashioned way.

Plenty of Fish is the worst thing that could happen to online dating.

Search the web for complaints about how much Plenty of Fish Sucks. All those people can't be wrong.
