Sigh....if everyone was just honest....it would be a level playing field.
----------------
Everybody lies, especially people who are so adamant about not lying. It's just less obvious when what people lie about is what they call stretching the truth or what they think of themselves. What is it when someone who is as dumb as a post says, "I am intelligent" in a profile?

----------------
So, you want to trick your lady into a meet...in other words.
If you are so confident in your looks or think yourself attractive.....why would you need to lie....boggles my mind.
--------------
I am confident that I look pretty average. Not bad, but no Ryan Gosling either. That being said, I work out and very rarely see anyone in as good a shape as I am, of any age. I'm quite sure that I can get away with shaving the 5 years off, given that I haven't had any problem doing so.

-------------
So tired of playing the guessing game. Most of the men aren't fooling any of us....they just look silly.
The men that are my age...lie to supposedly catch a younger woman, then end up messaging women their age or me.
So....they have started off on a wrong foot....not good.
Screams insecurities...in my eyes!!
--------------
Given all of the people here who seem to have been looking forever, meeting (or not meeting) people, meeting the wrong people, complaining about the people they do meet, I'll take my way of doing things over the objections of people who do what doesn't work. What other people think about me being secure or insecure is not up to me, nor does it matter.

Sure, I know there were groups of like minded posters that solicited others to get enough complaints to get someone deleted. Isn't that to be expected with any forum that has long time members that know each other. What we have here is a internet based "Lord of the Flies". But with PIG's posting style, he was making it all to easy to claim abuse


I don't know.

I'm a member of a forum that's been existence in some form since 99/200 I joined that forum in 2003 when I was 17 even became a moderator there at some point (during the mod elections good times) the forum was eventually shut down by the site but another version of the forum was created with everyone gravitating there so essentially everyone has dealt with each other for nearly 10-15 years. There were times when things got cliquey, controversial bannings, beefs, feuds, rivalries but that's understandable because the majority of the members were teenagers and young adults, ranging from 15-25.

The forum still has mods but none of the drama happens anymore, no one ever gets banned unless they're just actively trying to like posting porn spam. That happens because we're adults, we're not teenagers anymore, all of us are in our mid-20s to late 30s. No one has time for that shit anymore, people have grown up and we've gotten use to each other.

One time me and my sister got into an argument when we were 19 or 20. She said something to me and I was annoyed the entire day so I called her a dumbass. Later that week she was annoyed at something and she snapped at me pretty viciously. I was pretty hurt by it and I told my Mom, apparently my sister was upset enough about me calling her a dumbass that my Mom revealed that my sister told her. My Mom who was also annoyed by the whole thing said this.

"You guys aren't teenagers anymore, you can't just sit and insult each other and not expect the other to be upset anymore. You'res adults act like it!"

Nothing in this forum is really that serious that people need to be deleted, if people can't handle a little debate then holy shit. All the sandy vagina's around here, I fill like I'm about to drown in quicksand. I don't want to hear shit from anyone in this forum about self-entitled Millennials are at all.

Just because the woman who you date(d) is fine with dating a liar doesn't mean the rest of us are. Water seeks its own level.

Demeaning my gf without knowing her at all just tells me a great deal about the level that would seek you. Apparently, you aren't exactly reeling them in.

Hey Joe aka " dude " , does the name Grima Wormtongue remind you of anyone ?


Do you mean that kiss ass toad from Lord of the rings? The one who has his wormy tongue so far up his masters sphincter that his breath smells like butt?

Also, I am pretty sure IG didn't have anything to do with it, especially considering I am the one who ran a blunt campaign of "take no prisoners annihilation" in that thread to victory.


Thread to victory?

Dude...Hehehehe.

If you call it agreeing to disagreeing a victory, then it was a victory. But I don't want to go there. I also miss the pig. And no, I have no need to delete him. The only one I want to delete here is ME. But that is a different story. More time spend elsewhere, instead of addicted to all this drama.

But I have to say this. Most men have a bar that they go to and hang out, there was a movie in HBO called "The Drop" that did that so well. Even my New York friends said it got it so right. So, this is what this place is. This is our bar, we come here, cuss a little, banter a little, know each other enough to push a few buttons, but in the end we love each other. Yeah we do. The we go back to our lives and as sh it happens, we go, "wow, what would or group thing of this crazy s hi t?" And we come back here and banter, share, fight, agree, disagree. Pass another round. Cheers.

Today my biggest drama was going to Cub Scouts. So there, for all of you.

This is a classic example why I don't date divorced parents....most of them are still married subconsciously and will never treat you better than a glorified lover. And they are quite well meaning but clueless about it.

It's not just divorced parents. My ex-SO still spends holidays with his ex and HER adult (in their 40s) children from previous marriage. Turns out I was just the glorified lover :-{


For the last time, my name is not "Sally"!

Laughed out loud from this one.

Sure it does. There's a group of five women, one of which freelances, one now behind the scene male with a couple sock puppet profiles to report people with, and one other. Every last one has posted in this thread at some point. Every... single.....one.


lol Crook when I first joined the forums with no pictures you were accusing me of being someone else ...

The bottom line is who cares what someone is doing...lets all go make about 10 more profiles and if one gets deleted the other ones will be past the 3 day limit and we can just start posting again...isnt that what the ones reporting people are doing--using fake profiles

Lol..:/ I know right? So if you would.... post and quote "my" accusation. Please note the thread so I can go back and post a quote of who initially alluded, accused or suggested that you're a former member reincarnated. Which you are since you have some negative experiences with the former mods. He just may not of had the right profile name. Thnx.


The bottom line is who cares what someone is doing...


As long as you're not the one being deleted? Few, if any.

As I said to my friend Sally, the professional sky-diver and supermodel: "you really should log on to POF some time. The forums are a lot of fun."

"Why oh why oh why won't you date me?" Sally replied.

"Sally," I replied as gently as I could, "we've been over this. Like most models, you are stupid"

Sally thanked me.



hahahaha! :o)

Poor Mr. Piggy.
When we see everyday who IS getting deleted, it's hard not to notice who isn't.

LMAO, When in doubt, His age?/Her age?, younger-older, then 55 or so, take note of 'Other persons spending habits'.

I haven't met a person yet, male or female, who won't take advantage of an "age discount"/"Senior discount".

I qualify for some discounts at age 60, and I can pretty much promise you, LOL I'm NOT the only one! Love it!

I disagree, bullying people so they dont post is the equivalent of getting them deleted IMO. Beyond Curious Ive never reported anyone (I have reported a few racist posts but just asked for the post to be removed not the person). But I have seen bullying a lot particularly Pig bullying RT which given that RT is the younger man is horrible tbh, I was on the receiving end of the bullying for a bit for sticking up for him. Ive also been on the receiving end of one or two cliques. The ones that ignore are irritating but I can live with that, the attacking ones are horrible. Ive seen several really good posters leave the forums for it and TBH, those same people dont often join in debates, they just disrupt them. The average person doesnt enjoy it and would rather not use the forums. Its a shame because there are lots of great people on here but if the cliques dont stop then all your gona end up with is the cliques. Im out of here for a while as having had to defend myself against two or three forum posters then get ignored again isnt my idea of fun. Being accused of being responsible for getting Charmin deleted isnt my idea of fun. Being attacked by Charmin isnt my idea of fun and Im too stubborn to pretend to get along with people for an easy life. Id rather not be on the forums along with a lot of other good people IMO.


I am posting less now & trying my best to stay on topic. Some of what we have seen is not healthy emotionally & I have a life outside of the POF Forum. No one from here is in my living room or in my back account, etc. If I don't read it, it doesn't exist in my life or affect it. My 2 cents, period.

Dragon is correct, Pig gives plenty of ammunition to his haters. His posting style is aggressive. Some like it for that reason. others don't. I've made cracks about RT, and I didn't get deleted (yet). For better or worse, Pig isn't a Pollyanna. You can't complain about speeding tickets, if you're constantly speeding. If you wanna play, you gotta pay. and all that.

why do people stretch the truth in their profiles? b/c honesty doesn't always pay very well. might as well get rejected by the lie, than by the truth. the ironic amusement is the people upset by the lies of another...when their profile reveals their own lie.

Your definition of attack is apparently different than that of many/most forum posters.

Although RT has thrown insults at posters, and had them returned back to him...I don't see him as being guilty. For one thing, his clique would include MOSTLY just him and a bunch of other misogynists and psycho's. A disorganized bunch at best!

We are going to add his home to POF tours. 1 st stop after Demidors place!


If you wanna play, you gotta pay.

That's a bit of revisionist history, I haven't been here long but I've seen enough posts from both men that they both receive and dish out. RT can be just a violatile if not worst a lot of times. His jaded views about online dating and women will upset a lot of people. It's not an age thing, shit I'm 3 years younger than RT and I don't have beef with anyone. I've read his posts plenty of times he brings it on himself. He has borderline misogynistic views and he's gonna get shit for it. It's something that he's confrontational about and prepared for, so be it. He's a grown man.

I've read Charmin's post and she can be a bit rough around edges because she's blunt but her posts have never bothered me, we haven't always agreed on things but it was always civilized. Like I said some of you guys need thicker skin, you guys have an habit of exhausting every debate down to it's limits and then going for full circle multiple times to arrive at the same point and nothing ever gets solved, no resolution occurs it just dies slowly. I've quickly learned to just let shit go when it comes to discussing relationships here. There are times when I want to call Belle or someone else on their views about race and I just tell myself "Nope, not going there tonight. I'm gonna play NBA 2K15 instead." No one in this forum is really innocent in terms of their personal issues with each other. But this topic should have died 15 pages ago but it kept going simply because of a harmless joke aimed at LH and people lost their shit over.

It's the equivalent of arguing with an spouse over something small their shoes were left out, then it spills over something huge because shoes turn into another major issue that was being held in for weeks. So now all this shit about cliques and profiles deleted, people not trusting each other, beefing, conspiracies etc....We're hitting conspiracy territory, nothing that's serious.

The reporting has to stop. As Crook pointed out, there IS a group that reports and has you removed because they don't "like" you. They send messages to others to have someone reported and join their side. Many have messaged me this week saying they have been contacted by people to report others and they named names. I'm not going to mention them, they know who they are. Those saying they don't report actually do and they lie about it. Those that follow Moderate Recall (TallIQ) and think he's wonderful are the worst offenders. Tall has another profile and I wouldn't doubt if he has more than one.

The thing is, it takes 5 minutes to create a new email address and a new profile and 9 times out of 10 the person you just had removed comes back and comes back cranky. And I don't blame them. There is no reason for Pig or Charmin or others to have been removed. Perceived power and stupidity is the only answer to this reporting crap.


No one in this forum is really innocent in terms of personal issues with each other. But this topic should have died 15 pages ago but it kept going simply because of a harmless joke aimed at LH and people lost their shit over it.


Exactly. Moderate Recall (TallIQ) took offence at someone he thought was poking fun at one of his followers. It was a joke. HE brought it up, then LH said she took offence. Funny how that worked. The thing is, at the same time she was "offended" about a joke about being "old" she was posting in the Sex and Dating threads about having a threesome and the woman's vagina smelled bad. And she's offended by an innocent joke about a young archeologist and her age??? Really?? And this took damn near 10 pages of arguing, sides being chosen and three people being removed. How dumb is that.

There are maybe a hundred or so folks that post on here. I've said before that the only ones left will be Eric and KJ. Zombies will have for everyone else...zombies and TallIQ and his clique. Sad. Sad that some don't have a free mind, sad that there are followers, sad that so many have thin skin and sad to see some good people go. Yes, some of these folks may be a little rough around the edges but is their opinion of any less value than yours...or mine? It's all sad and really, really pathetic.

I wonder why no one is willing to name names? By the same token, anyone with some kind of complaint against other members can simply make unfair false allegations out of spite.

What's crazy is that people can be deleted based on little to no evidence, I can easily just report chicks who reject me and have them deleted for nothing apparently. I'm assuming the moderators on POF's main site gets so many reports of members violating site rules that they just start to blindly delete and hardly look into it which is sad in a lot of ways.

Or.....some might be getting deleted when they are maliciously reporting others. Don't know for sure, but it kind of fits for what I've seen from some of those who get deleted.

Just sayin'.
