It looks like POF has already made some changes.Page 1 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Along with 07songsungblue, I am still alive this morning. I'm not sure why. Both of us, having angered the usual suspects, should have been booted early yesterday and yet we are still here. We both have had our profiles deleted over and over and over again, not because we harassed people, or obstructed the free flow of information here, simply because a few did not like us and so had us deleted over and over and over. You know, the usual stuff. . . being accused of being trolls by our abusers . . . when in reality they were offended by our posts.

This is probably my sixth alias created in the last few months . . . and I had already decided it would be my last. I know that Song had as many aliases if not more over the last few months. The thing about her aliases was that she never said anything that remotely warranted her being removed. Just some women here did not like her and that was enough. She should have taken it as a badge of honor that the suspects did not like her. We always need to consider the Source.

I am guessing there was such an outcry over the termination of Pig, who is very popular here, that POF has decided to change the method by which profiles could be deleted simply at the asking by a few rogue individuals.

I may be premature. Perhaps POF employees are a little chaotic right now due to change in ownership of the company.

Still . . . . it is possible actual changes for the better have been made by POF. And we have Pig to thank for that. Lets hope anyway.

Hmm, you won't last long if you keep posting in the same style as you usually do.

^^^^^ see what I mean folks. These are some of the abusers (though by no means all of course) and this is the reason it is great that POF might have changed its stance regarding deletion of profiles. Now there should be a legitimate reason rather than being the victim of perennial sour pusses. Sour pusses abound on the internet. They must not have the keys to the kingdom. Remember, Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned (or something like that), or a few gluttons :-)

As has been stated before, whether it is Markus or Match, neither care about the forums. I highly doubt they would take notice of an influx of complaint emails about Pig being removed. Some of us just get plain tired of hearing about this underground group of profile nukers. Doesn't mean we are part of it.

If you were a victim you would care.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me

Judging by some of your other posts in other threads, you are hardly an "innocent victim". It appears you can't keep your mouth in check. I just saw posts you made commenting on both Volcano and Motown being single. Not that I saw anything posted by them to provoke you, but even if there was, what are you four years old? Put your fukking big boy panties on and get the fook over it. It is the perpetual "Oh woe is me" whiners that come here that ruin the integrity of the forums.

Pig is a grown ass man and I am sure if he were really worried about his profile being nuked, he could figure out how to Google "How to make a POF profile."

As for your off topic rant above, no one needs to speak for me. Ask anyone that knows me. My mouth is so frigging big it has its own postal code.

Of course no one needs to speak for you, nor do you need to speak for me. And yet, you have no problem doing so and telling me to :

"keep my mouth in check".

I get fully that there are many women here bitter and angry at men, and they will always and hypocritically support women at the expense of men. Only men can be immature and obnoxious here. Doesn't matter how obnoxious the woman, nor how despicable she is for whining to POF to get people banned because she does not like their opinions. In the minds of many of you sour pusses. . . that is perfectly okay, she/they get a free pass. But should anybody fight back, even another woman like Song . . there will be hell to pay. I even read posts from women angry that Song was a woman taking a man's side. I think that is why some of you don't like Song and whine to get her ejected. Because she does support guys. And you all can't stand it.

It is comical and funny but really sad also. You know, I have often spoken to lawyers about why they hate doing domestic work . . . family law. And the reasons are reflected on this board. Hatred, bitterness, unreasonable and irrational demands and expectations . . . victimhood. . . . its ALWAYS the man's fault the marriage failed... Women are stereotypically vindictive to the hilt. I have had guy lawyers tell me they will never represent women UNLESS the women comes up with a huge retainer to make putting up with the BS worth it.. They all have guns in their desks to protect them if a woman goes crazy on them. And it is often the woman who will fight and fight rather than attempting to amicably resolve a divorce dispute. To those Lawyers who do take on these cases . . . more power to them. I don't know how they can stand it. I really don't. The stuff on this board from you bitter women is tame compared to what often happens in real life disputes.

Also knew a Judge who retired well before his term was up because he could not tolerate the domestic / divorce cases. At a retirement dinner, he proclaimed, only half in jest, that if he came back to sit as a senior judge, which retired judges often did, and if he agreed to hear a domestic/divorce case, there were signed papers in his desk to have him immediately committed to the closest Psychological treatment center. . . . Listening to some of you . . ., seeing how so many of you so easily ignore or manipulate the true facts, I see why he could not stand the job. Thereafter, he only agreed to here criminal cases and civil litigation . . . sans domestic.

Funny thing about "criminals", or at least former criminals / convicted felons. Many of them are straight up people. Sure they do bad things, but they are straight shooters in the sense they tell it like it is. No BS, no manipulation, no feigned ignorance of the true facts.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^See...the above is exactly why you keep getting nuked.
We don't need to hear your constant nagging about ....How bad "us" women are.
Just like men, we quite understand there are some bitter and angry women too.....such is life.
Do you have some sort of syndrome that you need to constantly seek attention.....all the time??
Do you really think....You are going to set us all straight?
You....who came back, pretending to be some strange caricatures....again, insulting our intelligence.
Just Stop!!!

I neither like nor dislike song, but I am not convinced she is a woman. Not that it matters, I suppose.

Whistle, why do you have a problem with my defending myself? Sure I can ignore the demeaning posts directed in my attention. Or I can respond. Why do you care?

Well if you find me at all credible, even if you consider me obnoxious, I can absolutely assure you she is a woman. She and I used to spar viciously in the forums. She even recognized me when I would delete my profile and come back months later to begin anew. Eventually we became friends beyond these boards. I am glad to see I have worn off on her a little. LOL

VVVVV
If you are going to quote me, get it right. What I in fact said was
It appears you can't keep your mouth in check


Which is the same thing as telling me I talk too much and I should keep my mouth shut. No difference.

I TOLD YOU NOTHING. It was merely my opinion of what I saw. Read my posts, nor do I support a woman's post on here because she has a vagina like me. That does not make her automatically right.

I'm a woman. I wore a bra today, I know that doesn't mean much but it was a new pink one I bought this weekend. I do have references if you'd like.

I was trying to post a pic this morning on my IPhone but POF wanted to "access all photos" and I didn't feel comfortable doing that. If anyone has an idea in that regard, I'll post a pic.

Who did you used to be Newoldgirl, I just can't place you. Many of us "used" to be someone else.

Family law is a sad business, and the lawyers often see people at their worst. I seriously doubt most women are any worse than most men in these situations. I will say that women likely have more complaints than men do, SPECIFICALLY about the reason for the breakup, but that is because women are the ones who initiate divorce more often then men do.

Speaking from personal experience, my ex husband never wanted the divorce, so he never voiced any particular complaint to a lawyer.

Does that mean he was an innocent victim? Oh, hell no.

We managed to work out our settlement between ourselves, as we wanted our money to put OUR kids through University, not the LAWYER'S kids.

A joke...
Q: What's the difference between God and a lawyer?
A: God doesn't think he's a lawyer.

Well, sometimes you are a bit over the top, but you have to remember that freedom of speech is under attack all over the place if you dare to say the wrong thing to certain parties.

In Canada, we don't have the right to free speech as you do in the U.S. And, it's under further attack.

Check this clusterfvck out:

This guy could go to jail because he disagreed with some feminists. Canada is a great place in many ways, but not if you have a POV that is different than thatl which is the dominant narritive.

^^^^^^^ Are you saying this guy was prosecuted because of offering some opinions over Twitter? I always looked on Canada as a progressive country. Even would consider living there . . but not if this is possible.

I didn't use to be anybody. In previous experiences of using the site, I was on the dating side only, not the forums.

One of the things that made me think you were a man was the use of the phrase "gal pal". I've ever heard a woman use that expression! LMAO

Well, Canada IS a very progressive place....

.... since we are a matriachy in many ways.

That's "progressive", isn't it?

Lol. I use "gal pal" all the time. I find it weird to say "my girlfriend and I are going shoe shopping". Guys don't say "my boyfriend and I are going for a beer". So I use "my friend" or if I need to specify gender, I use gal pal.

I also don't like "ex" used for a guy you dated for a nano second or a year or so. To me an "ex" is an ex husband or ex wife (or ex common law partner).

I don't see why the CA would agree to prosecute this case. Seems like a no-win, and very stupid because I am positive there is lots of ACTUAL harassment that goes on in the Twitter-verse.

I refer to my girlfriends all the time. It has never felt weird to me. But no, I don't call my male friends my boy friends...LOL. THAT would be weird.

No? I sure do.

I work with a lot of women and hear and see a lot of sexist stuff coming from them, but you'll NEVER hear any man saying or doing anything similar because they know they will be suspended or at least hauled up on the carpet in very short order if they say anything that is even remotely seen as sexist, misogynist or politically incorrect by the women.

If the case against Elliot is won by the young women who are pressing the case, things will get really interesting and not very good for anyone who dares say anything that hurts any female feelings.

Free speech only exists within very narrow, approved boundaries in Canada.

If it takes 15 report users to get you banned then why not change your tactics instead of just reinventing your persona over and over?? I dont know who you have been and tend skim over any offensive messages,... usually.

How do you know it is all women's doing by the way??? You sound a bit paranoid and by the sound of it no one will be heartbroken if you disappear.

If Canada is largely a matriarchy, they wont like you there either.. lol!!! Better stay put.

I thought I read about that case, there are actually 3 women charging him?
The case is going to trial.
There's a lot more to the story than...oh, he just said something they didn't like....come on.
They actually removed or blocked him and he would stalk their postings through others and make rude and
threatening comments.
One time he apparently tweeted the restaurant one was eating at with friends....yeah, he went way overboard with
his zealousness, which by the way...... started over a business deal gone awry.

We have seen how cyber bullying has effected our teens....with the many suicides attributed to it.
As adults....we need to conduct ourselves better.
Free speech is one thing but you can not stalk, bully and intimidate someone.....hiding behind a computer.
whether they're feminists or not.
