Very annoyed about my account being deleted

I have been on and off this site since October but recently was in conversation with a guy who we seemed to be getting on quite well ... went to log on and my account had been deleted, so now I will never know ... I had never used abusive language, send inappropriate pictures or abused the site in any way. I feel very disappointed that know I will never know and feel let down. My user name AJR64 I would appreciate that my account can be reinstated if possible, so that if by any chance I would find a sole mate that your reputation can be lived up too.

Auto change pswrd

This is the second time that out of nowhere my password was changed. Even with the password reset sent to my email still it couldn't be fixed. My assumption is they block u out to use our pictures. Even if u explain use of pictures without consent is a crime they do it. But why shouldn't they. Who do we complain to? Nice system of gov :-( no contract un signed in person is not valid. whether or not they include it, it isn't valid. I.e. am i drunk, is it really me, am i competent of making that decision...?

Account Deleted

I've had a pof account for less than 2 days. In that time I had about a dozen women show some interest in my profile. Then my profile was suddenly deleted. Registered again and this time I was deleted in less than a day. I have sent several emails to their customer services asking why I have been deleted with no response. I was never rude, never uploaded or sent any nude pictures. Really can't understand the logic behind their deletion policy. Is it because I was too successful? Maybe I was stealing somebody's thunder. It's a shame their don't even have the decency to explain why they have deleted my account. The only plus is I exchanged numbers with one of the women and have arranged to meet up.

Maybe you were deleted for exchanging phone numbers, which is against their T&C.

#670421

Lucky you. I was chatting to a nice man but hadn't had chance to exchange email or phone numbers...now will never know as I too cant get back on. I didn't break the rules either and had been a member in the past with no problems

Marco polo aka little guppy calling little bass

Hey Marcus! why are you telling your workers in meetings not to save any money? Stop stealing intellectual property from people when you call it a agreement and you dont folllow your own agreement ... putting your email in ours and not putting your face on it -against pof rules...then monitoring people without them knowing. This crew is one to stay away from. These people steal your intellectual property cause crazy people flag ya on the website. Then you lose your friendship with your deaf friend you take to the ballgame all the time. They have sexual parties in their offices...that are not decorated frugal people. Marcus sexual deviancy is regulated by his legal team... to keep afloat. His whole team are like cheerleaders as to not rock the boat. The prez marco polo brags about granola and a free beer on fridays. He has moderators young woman pics he uses to find bad folk on his website and kick them off but he doesnt pay them....thats illegal in this state. Marcos kate ben drew (who put up pics of squirrel and his private parts in the office had em laughing) these people as long as the get a piece of the pie its live and let live. I say time to adapt.

I want u account back about 3months it didn't let me use my my user name somebody has that name all ready my user name is pmkjr99 I try using it it just won't let me have it

#692346

shocked that my POF account has now been deleted twice?

Why does Marcus the ***, delete them? Oh yes he's a ***, and that's clear from his intimate encounters site on POF, and his question about personality review, is about women faking orgasism?

Isn't that Class? just look at the ads on the site. .

. he's ***

Is it against the sites policies to exchange e mails or phone numbers?

@PissedConsumer692346

I do agree. I was on this site for 6 months and they do have a double standard.

How come women can get away by taking a picture with the middle finger showing and some of them dress kinda sleezy. ***, you can see their breast. Now I have to login with a different name and try to find these people again.

Thank I do have their number. Think Marcus need to leave this company and have another person take over.

Plentyoffish is a joke

There are so many things you are not allowed to do on the site. They just randomly delete your account, they never tell you how you violated the so called terms of service. The Site is a joke. There is a block member part on plenty of fish so if someone complains about you they should just block you I am a normal guy looking for a friend, a lover, and hopefully more a writer and poet, this is not the first time the bozos as plenty of fish randomly just deleted my profile without any notice or warning. The site sucks, you send a bunch of messages and get one or two responses. Is it wrong on plenty of fish to be a writer and poet looking for someone. Just total Garbage. You lose lost time and energy

Plenty of fish Free, but UPGRADE $ is 189 year

36% of the shown profiles have dropped off 2-8 years ago, but POF never cleans out inactive users. 1 out of 3 has been gone more than 2-8 years. plenty of fish starts you off FREE, then you see you have limited services. The so-called UPGRADE $189 PEOPLE get first at top of searches,only they can see when someone was on line last, and the SHOW button works for these UPGRADE VIP's. WE are the little bottom feeders. the UPGRADE Club are the sharks--we are just minnows for decoration. it is so obvious this Canadian Goose Marcus, built a membership role 8 years ago because it was free to join. Now he has a lot of 2-8 years gone profiles and gone pics, so it looks like he can make bucks with advertsing and VIP club Upgraders. for every 10 people, 2.008 are still active (survey 2/12/13 random survey of 1,800 listed people - 1,000 photo profiles/ only 208 on line since Feb.08.2011. 8 out of 10..have not been back on for more than 2 -to- 8 years.

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.

#656541

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.
