Agree. There are other, better free sites out there, especially if you want to pay.

Absolutely. Leave the ads alone. I only use this site because most features are free.

This is just ridiculous. I would rather use another site 'cause pof is turning into match.com and the rest of the paid sites.

wow.. another strike against POF.. what's next, is the site going to get swallowed up by match or friend finder? guess the next thing we'll lose is the ability to see who wants to "meet me"? or maybe they can start charging to read messages.. that'll be helpful..

This is just totally stupid on there part yo do this and i will say there will be a lot of people that will probably leave this site or not log on as often any more because they mainly come on here to see who is looking at them so they can make contact with them. I think it was a bad move by POF to eleminate this feature to all customers.

Absolutely agree! What a bunch of greedy losers! You think we are idiots and don't know that your already making millions? Markus (you fukcing nerd) I read the article about waking up late and working 10 mins a day while the money came in...your ego is inflated a little much and I hope you get hit by a bus you scum bag

I agree with you. I'd rather have the ads than an all pay site, which is where it seems like this site is heading. I think the main attraction to this site is the fact that it's mostly free, so this makes no sense to me.

And so the monitizing of this site continues.

I knew the minute that Markus the Fraud took the "Always Free - Always Will Be" tag line out of the banner/site tile that this site was headed to a pay site.

What's the matter Markus? No longer making $3MM from Google ads and now need to nickel and dime every last penny?

This site will never survive as a pay site. The GUI and features suck compared to other paid sites. The only redeeming quality was that it was free.

And while I'm not certain, I kind of suspect Markus sold his interest (or a large percentage in it) about 6mo to a year ago. Either way, Markus the Fraud's site is now nothing to write home about and I predict it will go the way of the Do-Do Brid if this keeps up.

I am so ticked off!!
I use PoF cuz it's free and the Viewed Me feature is one of my favourite things. Now they're just digging for money. I don't care if you put more freaking ads on the site. Let me have the features I want. That's why I'm here.

So irritating. I'm probably going to bail on PoF soon.

this is going to lower the usage of the site. it used to boost about how you never need a credit card for anything on this site! Other paid sites let you see who's viewed you without paying for it! Really unhappy about this and will probably stop me from using the site! Hopefully the programmer sees these comments and changes things back!!!!

Agreed, bring on the ads!!!!
They don't bother me a bit. Sounds like there was a corporate takeover (they always want to squeeze the last nickel out of everybody)

Unbelievable...

I only got a POF account because it offered things (like the Viewed Me section) for free that no other site did.

And I kinda find the whole 'charging money so i can get rid of ads' I see the ads everyday, and they don't bother me at all. I just ignore them by now. On a business standpoint, with millions of users coming through this site, it would be weird NOT to sell Ad space.

I hope you will reconsider.

I suggest they add more features that they can charge for, rather than take away features that had already been provided. I agree with the rest! What makes this site any different from the rest, now?

Totally agree, I only use this site because it is free and do not mind a few ads. I guess the saying is true: "you get what you pay for!"

Agree big time ...Most of us use the site because its free ...I dont care about the adds on here ..if thats what it takes to keep the site free then put more up ...but if you keep makeing things cost me money .we will start looking for other sites ...once this is a full pay as you go site it wont be worth the money ...its not worth it to up grade now ...so after why bother

I have a bit of trouble with the ethics of a company (any company) arbitrarily starting to charge for a service (any service) that was free when the client signed up for it. I wonder if that is even legal.

Match.com blows!!

If POF goes that route, the product will suffer. People are here because it's FREE. When you have to pay, that’s when the professionals come out. (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)

you know in the past ive had my profile disappear for no reason, ive had photos that are closeups removed because the site said it didnt show my face. I am afraid to spend the money on the site then have my profile autodeleted. no thanks not spending a dime. leave the exsisting features alone and the ads intact.

Another feature gone! How many more Millions does the POF owner have to make a year to keep things the same? I've read articles on him where he only works a few hours a week. Owns a nice condo where he can walk to work. I don't believe he has any employees or only has someone help him once in awhile... Maybe it's a bitc## gf whispering in his ear......
