Shocking and disgusting profilePage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Friends, I've been on PoF for several years, and I have seen some terrible profiles in that time, but something just came on the screen just now that, even an old guy like me, who has seen some stuff in his time, makes me want to vomit.

It's a profile with about six highly offensive, deeply pornographic photographs attached to it. There is nothing in the text, except a word or two of a deeply sexual nature.

I am wondering what to do about this. Do you mention the profile name, or do you just keep quiet and soldier on?

If I 'report' it I might get my profile deleted for being 'offensive' and judgemental, and we can't have that.

I'll be honest with you, I have never seen anything quite like this. The sheer graphic nature of this profile leaves me speechless. I am stunned that this is on the Internet all, let alone on a dating site like this.

Best wishes to everyone.

- Peter

Unless the woman contacted you, I don't think you should concern yourself with it. Let the site owners handle it.

If her pictures rub you the wrong way, my advice is to just not look at her profile. Problem solved.

Not to look at her profile is difficult when you open the profile and it's there in front of you. You cannot unsee what you've seen.

I have decided to let it be. I won't be reporting it, and I know from one of the images which profile it is. I honestly can't believe that this is tolerated, anywhere. God help any children who happen to come across this.

Again, I won't be reporting this, and I thank you for your reply, Halcyon Skies.

Best wishes.

Oh pish posh. Pornography is clearly against the rules. That's one of the reasons the Report User option is there.
Profiles like that show up periodically - there was one who posted in the forums a few years ago. Wish I hadn't seen but enjoyed reporting it.

Think of it, Peter. You'd actually be acting in the public interest. How noble!

In my area, there's been an influx of profiles with nudity that has a website as the headline. It doesn't bother me in the least bit. I'll look at it knowing that it will be deleted by the system shortly. No big deal.

As cooldog mentioned, it's been going on for at least a couple of weeks now. In the big picture, I wouldn't define it as "shocking and disgusting". In fact, I would define it more as lame. And yes, the profiles don't last very long.

yeah, its some company doing it, I've started to see it now in my area. Well, its naked girls, not "deeply pornographic". Funny that a free site that people of any age can log into, may become a free porn site :)

still, a good way to avoid the mention of sex, is to not be on a dating website. There must be a Christian mingle site or something like that, i'll bet there's no shocking/disgusting profiles there....yet.

Go fellate Jesus. Everybody knows what is going on here. You are faking outrage so that some mindless broad will think that you love the Lord and will have sex with you. Guess what. She won't.

wait, the world isn't a certain way that someone wants it and that's...not a bad thing?

its like narcissim without the charm it usually has.

I think I know which mindless broad he has in mind, if the fawning praise is any suggestion.

meanwhile, if he was really our friends, he'd name the profile so we could judge for ourselves. then again, I think the feature for searching by name is gone again. Since the profile comes up so often he can't look away, he can copy and paste it for all of us to judge. I mean, if we're going to judge, why can't we all do it?

I have some respect for this venue because I use it. I like our forum community here and when I do chat with men here I am respectful and kind.
Peter.. If someone here offends your sensibilities as to what maybe clearly objectionable and against the sites rules or regulations then report it.

You have to be signed in. Go to the bottom of their profile and click on "report user". I do when I see a man's profile with 7 pictures of his penis. There are other sites for men to go to if they want to expose themselves like that. That is not what the creator Marcus was trying to promote here nor is it what the average user is portraying. This isn't a porn site like Adult Friend Finder. I don't know any others. I don't use porn or watch it.

Yes there is a warning:
ATTENTION!
You can only report users based on the content of their Plentyoffish profile.
Reporting users because you don't like them or have silly disputes with them will result in your account being deleted.

Peter.. This does not apply to you. You have no record of contact with this lady, no email exchanges, no disputes on forums here.

There is a drop down menu when you report. Just check off obscene images. Then they ask you to elaborate in a box so add your thoughts there. I think they also ask what you think POF should do to take action. You may want to suggest that they delete the profile.

Chances are she will produce another one under another user name. She is perhaps prostituting. Which some women try to do here. There is nothing wrong with your desire to report it. Do it if you want to.

It's not about " just don't look at it". That is some ****ed up advice. It is about the quality of content here. People don't build mansions next to slums.

Let's try to separate the poster from the subject of the post shall we?

Personally, I can't stand OP and his post may have been his typical hyperbole.
Personally, I don't have a problem with 'vanilla' pornography.

That said, porn is clearly against the rules on POF.
And there have been some NOT run of the mill porn posted as profiles and in the forums. Not talking (how'd someone above say it?) who-has. I'm talking about close up of woman taking a dump.

The idea of 'if you don't like, then don't look' is utterly ridiculous. When you're cruising profiles and come across a porn profile that has a 'straight' main photo, how do you know before you click on it?

And all he has to do is report it... It certainly doesn't require the poster's umpteenth post complaining about profiles he doesn't like...

Let's try to separate the poster from the subject of the post shall we?

The only problem with that is... the OP himself cannot separate himself from the subject...

you need to do sum digging .. (Aug 30 of petah's posting history) as to what offends his sensibilities and what may be objectionable . .because your profile images fall under his hysterical theatrics as being "slutty"

In my experience, its the pple who appear to be most "shocked" and "offended" by such things...are usually the ones most drawn or captivated by it!............especially when all the OP had to do was simply report it and move on!

Peter.. you could have just reported without getting all Merle Streep about it.
Seems many women's profiles manage to offend your eyes, I suggest you simply do not click on their profile to view all their pictures.

I see babble. He can report my profile too. I guess some men might see my pictures as being provocative. I don't. My bf likes them and picked most of them out for the profile so.. they are for him to show off I guess. Maybe slutty. If someone wants to think they are slutty it really is none of my business. ; )

Just another of many posts complaining about women who have offended someone and by gawd that person wants this woman stopped! How dare she!



While I don't want to find those profiles either, I move on, I could report the person, it's okay to do unless of course you are cruising profiles to find people to turn in, a revenge troll kind of thing. No where does it say that if the profile is breaking the rules, will you be banned for reporting it.

Yup!
Agree, 100 %.
Very, "Me thinks he doth protest too much" type post. Or, as we like to say in the South.........Bless his heart. :D ;)

How do you know it was actually a porn profile, as opposed to some woman exposing a lot of cleavage and being just a fraction of an inch from a nip slip? What someone considers as "slutty" can be subjective.

But if it will make the OP feel better, he's free to report it. Not that it will do any good---the woman will likely just come back with a new profile.

I have no idea what kind of profile OP was talking about but I know the profile I saw and it turned my stomach. I already said it was a close up of a woman taking a crap.

That said, it doesn't matter what the content of the profile is, the point some people make that if you don't like it, then don't look is ridiculous. You don't know what the content is until you look and then you can't unsee it.

It's like telling someone to not read an offensive email. How do you know it's offensive until you read it?

Get it?

Pornhub buffers too much. I prefer xvideos.
