Why would you concern yourself over the "feelings" of a complete stranger if he/she allegedly used your email address?

The way I am reading it is that someone signed up for POF and used wedge04’s email address for signing up. Not stated if this was intentional or not but the fact that the word moron is used in the description of the other party I would assume unintentional.

That would be like you having an email address of myemail101@1234.com and my email address is myemail110@1234.com and I fat fingered the address when I signed up for POF and now you at myemail101@1234.com are getting the emails for my matches that should be going to myemasil110@1234.com had I signed up correctly.

What wedge04 is saying is he doesn’t want to reset the password (since the account was set up using wedge04’s personal email) and delete the account without informing the person who set it up that the account is going to be closed.

I have to agree with Eric. Just reset the password and delete the account. Their fault, not yours.

My bigger concern would be if wedge04 has his account setup from the same email that the moron used. If that is the case, wedge04 has a chance of one or both accounts being deleted by the system. That would be compelling enough for me if there were another account opened under my email address. I would dump it as soon as I could!

had someone use my email address from a nearby town

the pizza and escort emails were annoying until I got a really abusive reply sent from him to his energy supplier, essentially complaining that he was paying for the old and new account and it was costing him loads of money, so did nothing for a few months

eventually told both energy companies that the dweeb was not me and that he needed a letter with simple to understand words that my email address was not his :)

As for the OP, edit the profile so that it is obvious that he is into dogging with doggies and likes all sort of weird stuff

you could post that he's a moron and doesn't even know his own email address onto the profile :)

Why not just send him a message on pof telling him to correct his email address? Wouldnt that solve the issue?

Not possible now. Wedge04 reset 'the moron's' password so 'the moron' cannot log in to read the message.

Too bad you can no longer change user name without an upgraded membership. Otherwise you could reset his profile name to "The Moron"!

Two things you can do... edit the moron's post to state what happened and point out what a moronic thing he did or take the high road and state the mistake made in case he looks up his profile then just delete it in a few days. My preference would be the former (Its the sarcastic SOB in me)
