|FAQ: How do I report a user?Page 1 of 2 (1, 2)|
|I don't see the "report" option under profiles or emails anymore. What happened? I have a man on here harassing me for being vegan and pagan and I blocked him but ya know, that is some pretty bad stuff to be saying and I'd like to REPORT him... :(|
Reporting A Site User
1. POF E-Mail or POF Instant Messenger Blocking
In order to prevent childish and malicious abuse of the reporting feature – only one report is registered against any one user by you when using the Report User link. Simply reporting a person once does not constitute an immediate action. Multiple reports of the same user by other users will however set a pattern of credence to the reports and will then constitute action automatically by the site. Please don’t ask how many reports by different users does it take to take action against a reported profile because that would be counterproductive to the reporting system. If you cannot get relative action within an reasonable length of time – feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
|The first Step, or usual initial Procedure would be to E-Mail Block a User, if nothing more than a few unfriendly Words have been exchanged via E-Mail or Instant Messenger. To block a specific User from contacting you again, go to your Inbox, open the E-Mail of the User in Question, near the bottom, click on the Block User Link.|
To block someone, open their email and look at the example below:
