got this email from marcus:
cliffs:My name is Markus and I created POF/Plentyoffish. When I created POF, I wanted it to be all about finding relationships with the right person. For the first 7 years this worked really well, I got the site to 10 million users without any employees people and POF was generating a ton of relationships. Around 3 years ago, everyone started using the website via mobile phones. Today about 70% of POF use is via a mobile phone and unfortunately about 2% of men started to use POF as more of a hookup site mostly due the the casual nature of cell phone use.
In sticking with my vision that POF is all about Relationships, I'm going to make a bunch of changes to ensure it stays a relationship-focused site.
1. Any first contact between users that contains sexual references will not be sent. Anyone who tries to get around this rule will be deleted without warning. This rule has actually been in effect since last month and it's made the site so much better.
2. You can only contact people +/- 14 years of your age. There is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old women. The majority of messages sent outside those age ranges are all about hookups. Anyone who tries to get around this rule will get deleted.
3. Intimate Encounters will go away in the next few months. There are 3.3 Million people who use the site every day, of those there are only 6,041 single women looking for Intimate Encounters. Of those 6,041 women, the ones with hot pictures are mostly men pretending to be women. Intimate Encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women.
In short the vast majority of people will not be impacted. This is because the vast majority of people are not going around spamming women saying "let's have sex tonight". I can't change POF alone, I need your help to get the word out there that POF is all about relationships!
- 2% of men use POF for hook-ups
- POF is about relationships
- Any first contact between users that contains sexual references will not be sent
- You can only contact people +/- 14 years of your age
- intimate encounters stopped & all girls looking for intimate encounters (especially good looking ones) are guys anyway
- no one will be affected because hardly anyone uses POF for hookups
- Markus is delusional.

I had a 40 year old milf ready to fuk (srs), had to wait until she returned to the country. Now it's over because I can't contact her and she said she wanted to wait until she got back to give her number (since she couldn't respond to it anyways). **** you Markus
He's just mad because he's an ugly awkward-looking guy who would have had to marry a whale if not for his money.

OK Cupid FTW. At least they're not trying to be something they're not. And it was always better anyways. Hopefully this will get more quality girls (the ones looking for hookups) to move over to OKC.★cVc★ 11b
