Can some women tell me how many times a day they block someone?

[ad_1]

I did an experiment a while back, i made a profile, added women to my favorites, used the favorite list to access a message history which was blank and went through them one by one, blocking them, that profile lasted a day, I blocked around 20 people.

​

I’ve always been curious about the inner workings of pof, I know for sure some aspects of the site are different for women, you have a flirt button, we do not is one example.

​

Its my belief that women’s profiles are harder to get banned than men’s, so how often do you block someone ladies?, I blocked ten women in a day with that experimental profile, it was gone the same day.

​

I would love to get a good look at how pof operates from the inside, there’s sure to be some shocking stuff there.

​

Here’s some things I have been able to piece together, most are anecdotal with only the effects to infer these from, so they will only be partially true or the end result of an unknown process (speculation).

​

Getting blocked around ten times is a ban or a flag for a ban.

​

There is a strange “flag” that happens when you sign up without circumventing the i.p block, your profile will have an odd glitch and the sent message screen (where you go into messages you have sent, not the confirmation) will be different, messages won’t get through, there’s around 30 minutes for the autoban to kick in.

​

Pictures are actually not marked in any way and its safe to upload previously used pictures, they don’t trigger a ban.

​

Email addresses might cause a ban if previously used, I have not tested this yet.

​

People can’t message you once you are flagged to get banned, I have confirmed this, cross checked it with alternate profiles, messages were not getting through just before getting banned.

​

There was a slight change in the site’s coding a while back, used to be sent messages would be deleted if someone blocks you, this is no longer the case, only the link from your inbox is now deleted when you are blocked, you can still access sent messages from the sent message folder and block them in return.

​

If you want to know if someone has blocked you without messaging them for the message that says you are blocked by the user, add them to favorites, people who block you don’t show up in favorites, and they are removed from favorites once you get blocked.

So, POF just deletes your profile without warning or reason?

[ad_1]

I was trying out POF, met a girl, was talking.

I invited her to Skype… And this morning my account is gone. Nothing weird, just “Hey, we’ve been talking for a few days now via message, here’s my handle if you’d like to do a video call.”

I recreate my account, find her and say “Something weird happened. My account was deleted.” And then that account vanished. From a different e-mail.

I don’t know what I’ve done. In a few days I probably only messaged 3 people. Was this girl sick of me and had me blocked? Is it the catfish from half a country away I told to get stuffed?

I mean, it was early days, but that kinda sucks. The lady seemed kinda cool.

I should also mention… Upon recreating my profile, any time I did the “Match Me” it would always say I matched 0 users, can’t give me matches. Is POF just broken as hell?

Update:
—————————————————-

After sending an email to their CSR

For the safety of our users, we have an automated system in place which flags suspicious activity on POF. Regrettably, your account was
mistakenly flagged by this system, and deleted. We apologize for the inconvenience.

So, now I can sign on again.

So I deleted my profile around 3 months ago yet it still shows up on google searches.

[ad_1]

When I google search for my profile username my profile still appears with a picture and description. Is there anyway to get your account fully deleted. Because this is pretty fucked up.

Does the POF app have video calling or not??

[ad_1]

So i’m guessing by my luck the one woman out of hundreds of likes (by me) is just scamming me, but after several messages back and forth she states that she’d like to meet but first would like me to get on a video call so she can get a better look at me. She said she tried to video call me through the app but that it wouldn’t let her because it wasn’t set up on my end. So I scour the internet trying to figure out how to do this, and I did actually find several pof-related pages stating that video calling is part of the “conversation powers”. But nothing anywhere on how to actually enable the feature. I do have a setting for enabling voice calls within the messaging window, but again nothing about video.

After explaining all this, she replied “You need to activate your free Video call options on here 1st. send a request to pof web master about it. have you tried it? I can send them a request now if u want.” I said no that’s ok i’ll contact support. Then she sent me a link stating to “try it out”, with the site something very scammy looking like pof-videoupdate dot net. This is easily the 3rd or 4th time in a few days that i got a scammer, but the first time it seemed like a real person who actually held a conversation at first.

Is POF just garbage? Are there no real women in my area actually trying to date?? It’s downright debilitating swiping right on literally hundreds of women and literally only getting scammers for matches. I’m not in the best place right now and just hoped to get some kind of validation and at least a little self esteem boost if not actual dates, and instead what this app and others is shown me is that I have no real value as a potential romantic partner, except that i’m a warm body asking to be taken advantage of.
