I get notifications every night from these bots. And really late at night. I got a few last night at like 3 am. Why is nothing done about it? I'm really tired of it.

Whining about it in here won't get you anywhere.

Disabling your phone alerts is something YOU are capable of doing yourself (the 3-square dots "Settings" button in the upper right corner)

Email customer service at CSR@POF.com if you feel it's specific harassment - just keep in mind, a couple times isn't a pattern yet. Name specific profile names in the email - it's like tracking a vehicle without a license plate if you can't give specifics.

I have a feeling that you fail to understand the Favorite button? (Or do you prefer Favorite feature?) You are certainly not alone.

It is undisptably the Swiss Army knife of site features.... at least for folks who PAY ATTENTION.

Learn to use it and it offers many benefits of all kinds.

Do you realize you can remove yourself off of annyone's list if it annoys you for some reason?

I'm with you, OP.

The "feature" along with "Meet Me" is being abused by countless bots aka fake profiles set up by dodgy sex sites.

Aah the mythology of the 'other uses' of the Favourites button....
back in the Stone Age if two people outside the permitted
age range favourited each other, they could message without
restriction....it stopped a few years back........

Any more myth & mystery?

I think nothing is being done about it because POF is the one generating the auto-favorite bots, I guess they got tired of men complaining they get zero responses, the vast majority of dating websites use this tactic to keep their users interested.
