Email addresses as last poster?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
When you are on the main page and see the titles for the sub forums (Relationships, Dating Experiences, etc.) you see when & who posted last.

Does anyone know why sometimes instead of a profile name there will be an email address? Of course when you open the sub forum there is no one posting with that email address.

If you were to check right now the same email address is listed under two different sub forums.

What about when you see the last person who posted and yet you go to see what they wrote and ....there's nothing there except the previous poster ?

If you are actually seeing email address on the forums main page, something is seriously wrong. This should never happen. That would be a security disaster and would be a cause for really worry if the site gave a darn about the forums, which it doesn't.

Anyway, its not a good idea to use your actual e-mail on a site like this. Get a junk mail drop address from somewhere and use that on internet sites.

Chuck,
Noticed that also. I suspect the poster either deleted their post or someone else deleted?

I just noticed the current email address one can see currently on the main page ends with .es (the mail account is located in Spain). I once thought that POF had a glitch and was showing the poster's real email address rather than their profile name. But after noticing a few times that the email address would be a male name (johndoe@hotmail.es) and then the last poster was female I figured something else was causing the glitch.

Is it a glitch or is it the aliens? Or do I need to get a life.

Absolutely right! Back around the first of the year I created a new account and used my regular email address when signing up. Then the spam started... nasty stuff... and all from women" looking for, well you know what. I deleted that POF account and a few months later created another account. This time I was smart and did not use my regular email.

I'm thinking that maybe some very clever spammers have figured a way to get these email addresses posted. Or, the aliens.

We have a new TV show in the US called "People of Earth". It's a comedy/mystery/SciFi and the trailer is hilarious.

"Journalist Ozzie Graham is skeptical when he investigates a support group for oddballs who think they have been abducted by aliens -- yet the more he learns, the more confused, intrigued, and seduced he becomes. "

I really want to see it but I seem to fall asleep before it starts... still trying to figure out how to tape it. My cable provider seems to have the tape option blocked out for me. Any suggestions welcome on how to tape programs on cable.

Would YOU want to be compared to a reptile ????


I mean, I can IMAGINE that wouldn't feel very good if I were an alien . It's hard enough having to live among such a barbaric, inferior , irrational species on a day to day basis as it is !

Some of us are kind of nice to be around.

I am now depressed. I just found out I don't get the channel on cable for this show. And I refuse to give the cable provider any more money.

Well, if you have a VCR that still works.....
The other option is to use a computer and most channels have web sites with the most recent shows available for viewing.
Also, some cable boxes have composite video output you can record directly on a VCR.

You might ant to look at over the air broadcasting. Most places have good free broadcast coverage. Some people I know get 80 channels near major urban centers.

Chuck,
Hey thanks!

Since we are both bored, guess what? I just received a message from some fellow in my in-box and he said "you look pretty and matured." MATURED!!!!! Now I am really mad. I am not mature at all. Oh, and he is a scammer. I can tell from his profile.

I can't record it since I have discovered I don't get access to the channel.

Darn it.

You think being called " matured " is bad ?


Last year I was outside a bar with a friend's brother , who is about 10 years younger than me, and this guy comes up and asks " are you father and son ? "


I told him he has a lot to learn if he wants to sell drugs to strangers on the street successfully !

Go to www.tvfool.com and get the channel reception plot for you location. You may be able to get everything you want for free, except the "specialty" channels like porn and some sports...

I will check now and let you know what I find for availability. Remember, little Brattleboro is nowhere near a large metro area, but we'll see.

Now that's just silly. I can tell from your picture on your profile that you look at least 20 years younger than your stated age.

" Alien Chuck "


HAHA - I never said I was an alien, that's just .... silly



" you are a young guy "



If that isn't sarcasm then thanks. But, my point is it was a stupid thing for him to SAY to a potential customer.



And I agree, "rearguard" doesn't look any older than anyone else without a photo
