Another useless suggestion for AFF...

Sent this morning:

"I would love to see a feature on the site where you can publicly view those profiles that you have submitted as fraudulent, and see how many were actually deleted from the system.

I have tried very hard to help weed out the fakes (100's submitted), but not knowing if my "help" is even needed (or doing any good) is starting to get old.

How about giving away a small number of points (5 or 10) for every successful fake that is reported? That would be SOOO cool, and would encourage lots of people to take the time and weed out the trash.

Thanks!"

When you see a profile that you believe to be fake, how many of you actually report it?
I'm so sick of fakers on here, I report every profile that I believe is fake.
Here's some of the methods that I use to make the determination of a real/fake profile:

1) The picture. If it's obviously not a "real" person (too perfect), it's probably not real.
2) The introduction. First thing I do is scan for "send me your addy so I can contact you". BINGO!
3) The introduction (pt I. If the intro basically talks about how "cum-starved" she is, how she wants it "in every hole" and says nothing about herself, warning.
4) The handle. If a handle is like sexxx_696969, that's a red flag to me. By comparison, a handle such as "TheMissKrissy" or "LoveSpell11" shows creativity, and does not "ooze" sex. (the handles, definitely not the ladies!) Also, most of the fakes I've seen on here lately have a string of numbers after their name (ie: hotmomma962, cumfuckme443, etc)
5) Network. If there's not one person in their network, I take that as a warning sign. Not always a given, because some people keep their network private.
6) Testimonials. See #5 - same principle

Generally, I won't report a user if they maybe have just one of the above, sometimes 2. If they have 3 or more, I report them every time.

It's not like AdultFriendFinder actually *does* anything about them, but it certainly makes me feel better than I'm at least doing my part to weed out the garbage.

Thoughts or comments?
