POF also needs to restore the POF Forum to their website. Taking it down was an awful decision.

Anyone who is sick of the +-14 year age messaging restrictions on Plenty of Fish should tell everyone they know to boycott all of their events and paid memberships until this problem is corrected. They can also send the following form letter to the company CEO:
Markus Frind - CEO
Plentyoffish Media Inc.
#142-757 West Hastings St.,
Please go back to your pre-2013 messaging policy of letting everyone message everyone else. I don't like the fact that you block messages sent to those more than 14 years younger. Age is just a number. We're all adults here and should be able to make our own decisions about whom to send messages to.
If someone doesn't want people beyond a certain age range sending them messages it should be THEIR responsibility to set those restrictions. It comes back to someone at the top treating members like they are adolescents who can't make responsible decisions for themselves.
