What kid would want to be on POF when there's pornhub lol



Pornhub buffers too much. I prefer xvideos.

I just found one of these profiles and it has the following headline:

(Username)...find me here hotweet****.com

The age of the profile says 47, but the pictures (full nudity) are of a woman about half of that age.

I've noticed a pattern of threes with bogus profiles - three profiles with outright nudity, or three profiles with under age modeling pics that tend to ask for e-mail contacts or some sort of off-site communication. They show up at random times, but they do occur EVERY single day. Most of the time POF catches and dumps them within minutes, so for the most part I just ignore them. By the time you may catch one in your search window, the other two have probably been purged.

I think what people fail to realize is that POF doesn't pre-screen it's content. People complain bitterly about that on EHarmony and other sites that won't allow people to say what they want or post what they want because they pre-screen all submissions before allowing them to the public. POF decided to keep the site free, and gave fellow members the ability to police each other by using the 'Rate Images' tab under the 'Meet Me' menu on the desktop browser version. We vote our own members 'Off the Island' in a way of speaking. What that means is SOME obscene content will make it on the site, but it's usually very fleeting and as soon as they get flagged they're usually gone.

Now at the same time, what people define as 'indecent' or 'pornography' can be as varied as the people using the site. Despite peoples' prejudices for race, body size or fashion sense, some pretty tasteless stuff sometimes gets allowed, and some pretty decent stuff gets voted off. Just keep in mind, it isn't a single negative protest that usually gets a profile kicked - it's several. If your fellow online daters are OK with something, it doesn't matter if you are not. Your control over who you see, or who is allowed to participate is not exclusively limited to your own preferences. The freedom of opportunity is open to everyone - it's what people choose to do with it that creates issues.

My personal view is to keep your deep moral convictions to yourself; and live and let live. Society as a whole takes care of itself rather well. Your portal to this site is almost exactly like watching TV. You can't always specify the next show that pops up on the schedule, but you always have the freedom to change the channel, or turn off the TV and do something else. You are not a 'victim' of anyone or anything in here BECAUSE you have that freedom.

That said, it doesn't matter what the content of the profile is, the point some people make that if you don't like it, then don't look is ridiculous. You don't know what the content is until you look and then you can't unsee it.

It's like telling someone to not read an offensive email. How do you know it's offensive until you read it?

Get it?


If someone's profile offends you, the time to report it is while you're still in it. The OP had already closed the profile when he started this thread. If he wants to report it, he'll have to reopen it and look at it once again, further etching it into his memory.

I still think that at this point, he should let the site owners handle it. In all likelihood, the profile has already been reported, and will be deleted soon, if it hasn't been already.
