Why are deleted profiles still showing up?Page 1 of 1    
I noticed this before and made a mental note that if and when I were to delete my profile, I'd erase my "About Me" first.

As for someone starting a new profile with the same username, not possible. I'm not sure what the time frame is, but it's obviously some particular length of time.

I saw this thread and thought I would try it out...my old profile which was deleted in 2008 did show up as well.

Funny thing is ....when I rejoined the site, I had briefly thought of using my old name and thought I would seek it out to see if I could. I found it... but a man had taken my user name over already .

Anyway, I thought it was odd that the deleted profile showing was mine....even though the actual user name had been used again afterwards. *shrug*

No big deal to me personally.... but it is odd that this would occur. Unless, he was deleted for whatever reason...so it reverted back to the original user.

Question when a pof profile is deleted if you go to search it on bing or google will link still show up to your profile still but bring you to the main site? Or if you hide your profile and do search on google or bing will the link show up and when clicked on will it just bring you to the main page to ie login? I was just wondering.

I have a question. Someone made a fake profile in my boyfriends name and we asked to have it removed and when you search the user name on Google it still shows up but when you click on it, it takes you to the log in page. What does that mean ?

If someone deleted there account why does it still shows as user on line now? This guy I'm seeing deleted his account but it said; deleted user but still on line? I don't get it

Had created an account at least 8 years ago and found pretty much the same trash, fake profiles, photos, scammers then as I do now. I deleted the account with the photo. Thought maybe after 8 years POF would have taken liability for their site, which, they have not, and found when searching for my new profile, the new photo does not show up, but the photo I had of me from 8 years ago does. When clicking on that old photo, it leads to my new account created within 2019. Looking up user names for profiles stated to be on Plenty of Fish are not on their site as existing. Instead, when searching these usernames, multiple photos of different people appear as being connected to the same username and are NOT different accounts, but the same one showing up first in Plenty of Fish.
This site falsely claims they are the largest singles dating site, which, can be proven to be false.
The site POF is POS.

Plenty of fish claims they are the largest dating site. However, the fake profiles are the reason the numbers are as high as they are.
