Having been a member of this site for a while, I have noticed a few things about this site that seem to serve no purpose other than to piss ppl off; and I mean real users, not spammers, scammers, grossly disgusting perverts, or any other form of scum that you can expect to find on any given website.

It makes for a very user unfriendly experience!

I've talked about getting profiles suggested to me in e-mails from this site that have no pictures whatsoever in another blog. (This is perhaps the main reason that I am just not on this site very much!) I'll leave that there for the most part...

This blog has to do with the another little screw up that just adds another insult to my user experience on here. A little something that I call "Couple" profiles!

When I get e-mails from this site it is rather common for them to contain profiles that are designated "Female", which is why those profiles end up in my Inbox. But, in the essays, and commonly in the picture(s) if said users bother to have any, it is extremely apparent that their profile is that of a "Couple"!! (Usually, they will just say that they are a couple!) Well, I'm straight! I don't want to look at, talk to, or have anything to do with another dude! These "Couple" profiles should be removed from this site, or at least to the extent that other members can not see them, until such time that this website can pull its head out of its ass and add "Couple" as a third option ... AND ... only after their status has been changed to "Couple" should those profiles, each of them individually, be reinstated!

I haven't encountered other users who have experienced this so, I can't honestly say that there is a huge movement behind getting this site to remove it's head from its ass on this issue... although, on that other blog that I mentioned earlier someone did mention that the moderators/admins seem to be incognito! So, if they don't want to do the things that moderators & admins are supposed to do, like actually police the site, add photos, verify, add, & remove profiles, etc., ...then it is apparent that I am particularly unlikely to get anywhere with this issue. I guess that I am asking other users, particularly those who have noticed these fake and inaccurate profiles that really do have a designation of "Couple" and not male and female, to join me in my endeavor to change this websites policy of misinformation and lies so that users, so that all of us, will not have to suffer under the stupidity of this sites webmasters & administrators?!

Please, this isn't going to change unless enough users scream and stomp their feet about it at the same time. (I've been "Reporting Abuse" on users profiles to AMD for over a year on this issue and never once, not even once, have I gotten a response from an admin or a moderator about this!)

Thank you!

It'll remain that way, too. This place is just coasting along without any moderation, and so it'll remain.

I think they may as well do away with the "report abuse" option.... using it rarely ever works!! And I've written to the moderator 3 times in the past couple of weeks... he's never even read them! Guess if you want to get anything done you'll have to write to Brenna... she's usually on it!
