Playtoyz, Female from USA. Amber, Female from USA. I can't believe the unattactive men on there. Bug, Female from USA. I've been on that too. The penpal thing gets to be really old. Who needs to be led along? Athens, Male from USA. Why is it so hard to find username in plentyofish. Ive been trying a bunch of username, but didnt work out. Zen, Female from USA. I have tried plentyoffish. There are MANY undesireable people on it, some even having multiple profiles! I also met the man of my dreams on that site, after taking precautions about my own safety.
Tanae1, Male from USA. With the exception of the few people who are using public computers in the library, everyone online either had a computer or a job where they can access one. So the chances of having a homeless person post on these sites is rare, but the rest of the free world can freely go at it!
Doug, Male from ontario. The only good thing about this site is that it's free. Otherwise you have to deal with power abusing mods that dictate what you can and cannot do. There are many scantly clad ladies that are posers. There is no freedom of speech on the forums. Also the mods are very hypocritical. PoF is more of a social site then anything else. This site would be much better if it got rid of some mods who are abusing there privileges.
Sean, Male from UK. I know you are not supposed to complain about something that is free but plentoffish has some serious problems that really make it quite an unpleasant place to use. Being a North American site, it is bias towards their way of life and to their sense of humour Or lack of one and being from the UK, if you ever cross the mods in any way that is that no leave for appeal at their court.
A ruling was recently brought in where all photos used on the site had to be fully framed face shots and not of pets artistic photos etc. The second major problem with the site is the forums. Once again it would seem to anyone who spends any time reading the forums that the mods come down on posters not from North America with an iron hand in a steel glove.
Posters vanish from the forums banned for up to 3 years for as it was revealed to me from a number of sources only questioning a mod re a ruling. All in all most of the UK users questioned have stated that whilst the site is free, the bias rulings from the management leave no room for you to freely express your true personality.
Very Cliquey Posted by: Markass is a real p.. He will dictate what he views as inappropriate The slightest criticisms will get this creep to cancel you I've been on it for about 4 years, and never again! Less I want more of my postings and even my profile deleted without even one warning, for even doing nothing.
Especially after this POF owner Markus Frind has my email address to fill my inbox with tons of affiliate and 3rd party spam. Randy, Female from USA. I find it a very friendly and helpful site.
Xan, Female from London, UK. Also, people get banned for a reason, some of them just don't understand that foul language or insulting other members is unacceptable. Emigre, Male from UK. I registered on the plentoffish. After a few chats with a couple of ladies which were going really well I was banned completely out of the blue. I have since tried to re-register several times but the profile always disappears within minutes. I have no idea why and nobody responds to my emails. I was on Plenty Of Fish for a while, and I can testify that for sure, that Markus guy, owner of Plenty Of Fish, does not care about the safety of the women on his site at all!!!
All he cares about is his pocket book and how much he's making. I went on a date with a really good-looking guy, who turned out to be a total creep. I went out with him 3 times in total. On the 3rd date, we went back to his place. His apartment had pictures of several of his ex-girlfriends with their eyes plucked out! Needless to say, I got totally creeped out, made an excuse to leave, and I never went out with him again. But he kept on calling me and harrassing me.
And even wrote me harassing emails through that site. I reported this Markus, forwarding the harassing emails to him as evidence, and you know what happened?
He kicked ME off the site!!! And that guy is still on there!!!! And you believe that BS??? I read in one of the newspapers somewhere that the Orangeville woman who was murdered might've met her killer on Plenty Of Fish.
However, Markus claims that the Orangeville woman was off his site when she was murdered. Honestly, I wouldn't believe a single word that guy says. He's probably lying in order to protect his pocketbook and his stupid site. I hope the police doesn't believe that guy. That guy's a moron and his site should be shut down. And I hope that it does get shut down, for the safety of all women!!! Kate Wilcox, Female from England. With the tons of e-mail they get from hopeful suitors, they acquire both swelled heads and a wildly unrealistic opinion of their market value in the dating world.
Gold-diggers and hungry women looking for you to pay for their dinner and wine. No explanation needed here! Professional daters who, sucked in by the endless choice online dating appears to offer, keep looking for the Bigger, Better Deal.
The type of woman mentioned in 2 above often fits into this category. Teases who get off on rejecting men for sport.
Blonde Russian-Ukrainian bimbos or women from other foreign countries where poverty and crime is rife. Probably half of these women are allied with fraudsters seeking to fleece desperate lonely white collar suckers. Drunks, drug addicts the prescription kind too , bi-polar nut cases, other assorted psychopaths. New for the Plentyoffish?
