Unsubscribe from POF eMailsPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
How can I stop receiving the monthly emails from PlentyofFish about where the site is, how many people are using it, bla bla bla and a whole bunch of other stuff I don't need to know or already know cause they send the dang email EVERY MONTH.

I don't want them anymore.
I use the site enough to not need to be reminded to use the site.

If you need to delete your account, click the HELP link at the top of your screen and follow the directions or read the following FAQ: How To Delete Your / My Account and proceed to delete yourself. There is no staff to fill such requests.

I thought that was the case.

I want the option to not be notified every month.

I'm sure other people want the option too.

And here I will talk some more and more because my message is too short.
Even though I've already said everything I need to say about email notices.

that's a good point.

Monthly or weekly emails about new matches or anything else, may be a good way to reach people who don't log in often.

But if someone logs in to this site daily, do they really need occassional notices that they have new matches, or any other reminder that the site exists?

Virtually every E-Mail Client/Service nowadays, whether provided by your ISP or Online, has built-in Spam Filters so you can choose what E-Mails you would like to block.

Use it !!! Then you'll never see one again.

We only send out the new matches email.

Anything else is a faked email. Getting complaints about people using fake plentyoffish addresses to send out spam

Not every isp offers spam filtering and or course if you run your own mail servers this does not help.

I have some addresses that go back to the 80s... they now get 4000 spams an *hour*. I've actually found books with them in there. Greaaaat.

What I've found worked better than things like spamassassin or popfilter is Gmail. You forward you rmail to Gmail then forward that to an unknown private address. It works amazingly well. To be sure I still get a couple of spams a day but I can live with that.

SPF records work to cut down on forged spam. it's just a TXT record in your DNS. There's a "wizard" out there someplace that generates the correct SPF records for your domain(s).

Some sites, such as hotmail won't even accept mail from servers without SPF records although this is hit and miss - sometimes they do sometimes they don't and when they don't they just drop the mail on the floor with no notice to sender or recipient.

The weekly matches email should be optional. Why should I continue to use a service that I have to treat like a spammer? There's other sites that are thoughtful enough to not do this. I'm quitting now

How do I remove my profile?

The HELP link at the top of the page or in the prior post would be an excellent start.

I don't get matches from here...I mark anything from Customer Care as spam...and let anything from POF go to my mail. Easy!

This is basically a DYI/hands-on type format.

Press "Help" at the top of any page.

Scroll two lines further, press "Resign".

Follow prompts and Ta Dah!!!

You're free.

I have started marking the messages as spam as the moderator suggested. That is crazy though that POF would rather have you classify them as spam then give you the option to stop the emails. They will wake up someday because some email providers like Yahoo will flag an entire domain as a spammer and will block messages or at the least put them all in a spam box. Why an internet company would choose to do this is beyond me...but good luck with that.

We appreciate that but this is a self service web site. ONLY YOU can delete your profile. Read the moderators reply in message 8 several times.

You have a reading comprehension problem it seems. Only YOU can delete your profile as has been stated many times in this thread.

The very best I can do is point you to the quick way out of here.

If you want your profile deleted, may I suggest using the Express Line here:

I get an email EVERY time someone clicks that they want to meet me.
I click the 'Unsubscribe" link in that email and guess where it takes me?


So basically, if I don't want to get an email every goddamn time someone messages me, i have to shut down my POF account!?

Replies to this email will be automatically deleted. You will not receive more than 8 meet me notifications in a 24 hour period. If you do not wish to be notified by email, you can unsubscribe here:

The spam matches emails never seemed to come daily but now it seems to me to be hourly it so annoying! However I do use the website and I shouldn't need to block all pof emails just to not receive unnecessary match emails.

This is just a joke and *** **** ridiculous ...
"7. If you do not wish to be notified about new matches, unsubscribe here:"
If you don't want spam emails in your inbox F-You and leave.. thats what this line says to me every time I read it.

1. Moderators using the excuse they can not delete accounts.
Okay so while this could be accurate to some degree,

Completely accurate - we do not have any power over profile accounts on the dating side.

you need to weight up the options at hand.
- That is a half lie, they have the full capability to delete your account,

Wrong again - we do not have any special (read - ZERO) capability. We have the same avenue you do to report a profile for deletion and THAT IS IT.

they will have SYSadmins and DBAdmins that can simply remove you from the data base.

Same avenue you use, we use, (they are the sysadmins) and there's no more expediency to our report as your report.

- If everyone always wants their account deleting this will take up hours a day which could be developed into better resources.

You can delete your own account - how's that sit with you?
