Terrible and Outdated website that's controlled by a narcissist. There are several other site's that do a way better job for free.
-Difficult to delete your account (It took me a couple of months)
-All profile info requires approval (by one person)
-Minor violations sometimes result in a banned account without warning.
-Many people that are not the "Bear" type are denied an account.
-Many people that are not Caucasian are denied an account.
-The site is useless unless you pay, which is also useless because so little amount actually pay.
-Some members have reported that their images from Bear411 were found on BearPorn.com
-Website uses technology from 1995. It's very outdated.
-Lots of fake accounts, many include photo's stolen from the internet and it's speculated that the webmaster is behind it.
-Your conversations are being monitored.
I was a former member of Bear 411 and had problems deleting my profile because there is no option available. I got to delete it with the assistance of the Attorney General of my state. I describe myself as a bear in mindset and physical features, but I hate discrimination and can't support bear events, dating sites and activities that idolize hypermasculinity. The behavior of the webmaster of Bear 411 promotes discrimination based on looks and perpetuates internalized homophobia.
Yes agree fully with both comments.
