Plenty of Fish is the worst dating site on the Internet.
While the concept of online dating is well meaning, the execution of it is very difficult. However, while some sites actually make an attempt at creating a useful and potentially rewarding user experience, it is clear that Plenty of Fish have no such aspirations.
For the honest guy, the site is teeming with fakes, con artists, delusional leftovers, social paths and attention seekers. There is probably 1 plausible candidate for every 99 you have the displeasure of having to swim past. However, many of the candidates are wary since they had to endure a sea full of equally dreadful denizens.
The honest woman has to endure a steady flow of cads and poseurs looking for a booty call. Encouraged by the amount of truth-stretching by a lot of the female ads, these hounds will post up equally embellished profiles and often completely fake photos. It?s like trying to find an honest person in the middle of a smash-and-dash riot looting fest. They do exist, but the chances are, you won?t find them here.
What makes Plenty of Fish particularly bad is that they clear promote all sorts of negative behaviour.
Although they will attempt to remove fakes and any profiles that have any hostility towards women, they are apparently less likely to remove female members who lace their profiles with an obvious tone of hostility towards men. There excuse is that they need as many female members as possible. However, how is that an excuse to promote negativity? It?s supposed to be about love and not hate, is it not?
Speaking of negativity. The man bashers have a place to hide out: the forums.
There is a small group of regulars that post up all sorts of negative comments about men in general. Sometimes the comments are blatant; sometimes they are cleverly couched in innuendo. However, these are left around while the moderator deletes rebuttals at her whim. It doesn?t take much to realize that the moderator, miss_Allison, has a clear agenda. She does not allow open dialogue about anything she deems to be ?done to death?. This really just translates to censorship of anything she can?t debate, but disagrees with. Members who speak out against it receive a permanent ban.
Essentially, this means that the forum site promotes intolerance to anything that man-bashers don?t want to hear.
The whole affair is a travesty, and people should avoid the site. The Internet community deserves far better.
