A thought has occured to me... (which explains my headache)

It's this email thing!

As you all know, we're having some frustrating email problems! I haven't tried to send an email to anyone to chit chat recently but, as anyone knows that has posted a comment in any of my blogs, I've always replied with a thanks for their comment, in the email AMD sends to the blog originator.

Now, when I try to send a thanks, I get this:

Mail was not sent.
As a free user, you have reached your mail limit for the day.
Click here to upgrade your membership to enjoy unlimited mail!

HUH??? I can't even send one email out to anyone, let alone having a limit of 10 or 50 or whatever.

Notice that it says, "Click here to upgrade." So if I upgrade, all my email problems will mysteriously go away, as they mysteriously became a problem??

I have a question and of course, if you don't want to answer, I'll understand!

My question is this: would you stay with AMD if they decided to turn AMD into a pay site, where any option available for free now, could only be available for a monthly fee??

Me personally... no disrespect to any friends I may have here BUT, I would simply move over to MD and may do so anyway because as unimportant it may seem, I show my respect by thanking someone for taking the time to post their comment in a blog I've posted- to me, it's important! And if I can't even do that through an email reply, then I need to go somewhere, where I can at least say thanks!

As I've said before, if I suddenly disappear after posting this, it wasn't the CIA that did it!

I'm thinking about "joining" and paying for a few months to see if it is worth it. I'll have to admit, I HATE doing it, because I feel as if I've been taken by the "bait & switch". It has been nice to see who has viewed me, cuts through a lot of the trolls and bots. It also has been nice to NOT see the constant ads for AFF and the others. I'm a self-employed businessman, and I understand that they have to make $. I wish they would just be up-front about it.

We'll see what happens...either way, good luck!

I am also a self-employed businessman and I too realize they have to make a buck but, as you say, to be upfront about it, is an important point!

We were paying customers, back in the day....to us, it wasn't worth it. But I am getting tired of this site. Hubby doesn't even come on here anymore and I'm just here for the friends that I've made. Most of them, though are on that Book page as my friends. So....should this be closed out?

There may be another business decision that we are seeing.. this place may be more trouble than it is worth, with all the trolls and the drama,, and potentially hackers too.

It costs money to fix things that are broken.

And it may have gotten broken while trying to fix the constant onslought of trolls and those that are more motivated to cause trouble and destruction than to fuck or perv some XXX pictures.

Sad to say, but not everyone is blessed with a healthy libido and healthy perversions. I feel sorry for them. I really pity those whose lives are so empty and meaningless that they can't even enjoy sex and tingly sexual thoughts.

But I am not particularly forgiving of them. In the spirit of the holiday, an Irish Curse:

May those who love us , fuck and love us with joy and laughter, and those who do not love us, may God turn their ankles and render their penises and clits permanently cold and unresponsive. that we know them by their limping and the sour expression on their faces!

Yeah, I got tired of it after a week of not being able to send out emails, so yeah, I went ahead and upgraded to gold. I thought since I did this, I attend to use every perk possible and take full advantage of it. We'll see how it goes, but if my friends continue to drop on off of this site, then I see no point in renewing my gold membership after 6 months.

I had been thinking about upgrading, then the whole email thing happened, and I'm trying it out for 3 months. If, after 3 months, there is still the email issue...hell with it...I cancel my account here and just hang at MD or on facebook. I like the perks, not having to see ads all the time, seeing who viewed my profile, unlimited emails (better be unlimited!), and being able to put pictures in blogs/comments. But, I don't think members should be made to do that when they've enjoyed the free emails here for years.

I don't know what is going on behind the scenes, but, they need to either let members know if they are changing policies, or, if there is a hacker/troll attacking the site, then they need security for the site.

Those of you who have already upgraded, I feel sorry for you, and I'll tell you why:

Several years ago, I decided to try a month's premium membership, just to see what
I was missing. I wasn't all that impressed, so I let my premium membership lapse.
Do you know what I found?

AFTER YOU LET YOUR PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP LAPSE, YOU NO LONGER
HAVE THE INHERITED ABILITY TO SEE NUDIE PICS!


This pissed me off to no end, but there was NO WAY that I was going to be bullied into
becoming a perpetual member.

That leaves me with three options:
1) Stick around, and grin and bear it;
2) Do like Som was considering, and move to the vanilla Matchdoctor;
3) Give up on AMD altogether, and move on.

I'll probably opt for either 1 or 3; NO WAY am I paying for this dying website!

Ability to be able to email friends vs. the ability to see nude pics

Hmmm, love to have both of those. But if I had to pick between the two, I would pick having the ability to email my friends on here.

I hold my friends in high regard.

Yeah, if this happens and I'm unable to keep my grandfather status like I had before I upgraded to gold, sure, I will be pissed. I'll be even more pissed if I can't email anyone. If both happens, I'm sure I won't be hanging over here all that much if any...

I honestly don't think I would!!!
Being bullied..just Pisses me Off!! If that's what they are doing?
I wish they would just be up-front about it.
Amen!!!

I can understand..if they did go that way!!! Gotta make some monies.....to pay for This site! I'm sure the Owner isn't getting Laid either!!! Just saying..
BTW..has anyone Paid attention..to the Amount of members signed on..at any given time of day? There's 98 peeps signed on Now...to AMD, POF.. has over 245,000 signed on at the same time!! And..POF...is doing the same dang thing... A little at a time!!!
Within the past couple of weeks..they have done away with a feature or 2....so if you want these features..you have gotta pay!!!

If I loose just my email..here..I know..that I would Not..become a paying Member!!!
Hell ...I have a bunch of peeps on my FB from here... plus..like some of you..I do MD also!
