Giving up?


I am considering giving up AdultFriendFinder.

There have been a lot of improvements here, especially in the Blogs area, which has always been my main interest.

However, with the inclusion now of a Banned Words List, which has not been published or announced, AdultFriendFinder has removed itself from the serious contenders list in my mind.

That this list should be applied to Blogs is something I have never experienced, and I am hardly new to Blogging.

That this list should be applied to a service provided by a company registered in the USA, a country so proud - and rightly so - of its Constitution and Freedom of Speech, goes against everything that I believe in, and that all Americans (North) should believe in.

Assuming that this critical post gets through the censorship here, I shall be making my mind up over the next few days. In the meantime I have copied this post to my contact at AdultFriendFinder, and hope for a response.

This banned words list is news to me nightstogether. I guess I will believe it exists when I see it. My posts may be on the lighter side but I have yet to struggle with any of the things I here about on other's posts. Is it possible that the issue is mostly on posts from outside the USA.....or posts by people who get more traffic?

I am really sorry you have to put up with this stuff...I am sure it isn't any fun but I will really miss your posts if you give it up. Let me know if I can do anything to wake up the powers that be.

Hope you can hang in there for a while yet.

From what I've heard so far, it doesn't appear to be effecting people outside the USA. There is a banned words list, and it contains mainly racist words which would be unacceptable to all - and which I agree with.

I've been in touch with AdultFriendFinder and had a very positive response - passing on the three Bug numbers that I know of, and the matter is being checked now. Hopefully it is just a glitch and we'll be over it very soon.

dz: yes, I have thought of that too, which is why I've been in touch with AdultFriendFinder, and which is why they're checking to see what's gone wrong. The trouble is, it's a bug that upsets people and causes them unnecessary stress with a service which should remain stress-free. Bugs are also there to be sorted out, and as quickly as possible.

mzhunyhole: It is rather strange, especially since we don't know which words are banned, but can get to see as much flesh as the heart desires!

papyrina: It's much the same for me. I'd had no problems up until my first Poland post, and then it started. Until now I'd only read about it in the Group.
