My About Me section keeps vanishingPage 1 of 1    
This is just weird.
I spend some time typing up my About Me section, I click the Update Profile button, and it's fine for a few minutes or an hour or several hours. And when I come back to check it later, it's gone. And so is my headline. Totally blank. But the checkbox stuff is still there and so are my Interests.
This happened several times over a couple of days.
So I typed in some babble talk just to take up space, and checked it everyday for a week and it stayed there, no problem. So I thought the site had been experiencing a glitch that was finally fixed.
So I go back and typed in my About Me section again, clicked on the Update Profile button, and checked on my text for the next 10-15 minutes and all appeared fine. Then came back an hour later and it had *poof'd* again!
What do you suppose is going on?

Unless women are within 14 years of age 99, they can't contact you, and you can't contact them. I doubt if that has anything to do with it, but you might want to consider being truthful about your age, since you mention that you're in your sixties in the About Me section of your profile.

Your About Me seems to be showing now.

Also keep in mind that PoF only allows you to amend your birthdate for two weeks following registration. If you go out of bounds, you'll have to delete and start again.

Thanks for your responses and suggestions. My about me section is definitely a work in progress and not much of an attention holder. I'm surprised y'all could read the whole thing without falling asleep. But first. I need to make it stay put for more than a few hours. It's been about 6 hours this time which is better than the last try. The only thing different this time is, I left out my "View History" links. I've had two other screen names over the years so I had included those links too. I can't imagine why including them, or not, would matter but I'm grasping at straws here.

Yup, the links are probably what got your About Me nuked.

Okay good. Thanks for the confirmation on that. I was still pretty unsure.

Why is you age listed as 99? I'm sure you're a little younger than 99. That's the age your profile says when I view it. But....I do see an About Me section pretty much filled out. Too bad you're so damn old, I'd send you a message. lol JK

Why is you age listed as 99

It's like a Mail filter of sorts.

But my question is, why is this thing allowing me to post more than 2 messages out of the last 10?
Is that not the rule in this forum? I'm usually stymied by that one.
