Recently this has happened to me, could not contact a member. Sure let me help ya out. This site has CONSTANT system glitches that last a matter of minutes or hours. Most (not all) are addressed within 24 hours at most. Usually way less then that.
Anyone with a clue.
The solution for this and most other problems is to go get a beer from the fridge. Kick back and watch a couple Pawn-Stars reruns, grab another cold beer and try again. There is nothing you can fix. The problem is on POF's side and all you can do is check every once in awhile until its fixed.
Usually 2 beers will cover it.
