This is Brilliant!

I just saw a profile on this site that I feel demonstrates a concept that I have always regarded as being very effective. Some refer to this as the concept of illustrating absurdity by being absurd. I've taken the the liberty of copying the text of a certain standard member profile I just saw today, which I'll repost below, so keep reading, please.

The profile name is FakeFemaleAd, which has the banner headline, I'm a guy posting this to prove how easy it is to make a fake profile. A picture of Paris Hilton, which I have posted to accompany my blog post here, serves as the profile photo. Here's the rest of this profile, verbatim:

25 year old Woman in Somerdale, New Jersey, United States
Looking For: Men for Discreet Relationship or 1-on-1 sex"

Profile for FakeFemaleAd

I've been on and off AdultFriendFinder for nearly six years now. There's always been fake female profiles posted on this site, but lately it's fucking ridiculous. When I browse at women currently online in my area, normally half the profiles or more are fakes. And they're easy to spot too. I've reported over 100 fake female profiles in my area (Delaware Valley) to AdultFriendFinder. I've told them how they all use similar type handles and mostly use the same three cities/towns as they are all the same distance in miles from my location. Here's the telltale signs of the new wave of fake female profiles on AdultFriendFinder:
they are mostly from one of these three locations:
Philadelphia, PA
Wilmington, DE
Somerdale, NJ
they all have similar type handles:
two words and a series of 3-5 numbers in any order, sometimes it includes a space and a good number of them will have the words chica, vixen, grl.
AdultFriendFinder does nothing to prevent companies and individuals from posting fake ads and leaves it to us paying members to do their fucking job and report the fake profiles. At least they could give us something for reporting a fake profile, like an extra day of membership for free, but that would mean less money for them. Why should they care that their paying members have to sift through hundreds of fake profiles to find a decent real one? We've already paid them, they already have their money so why should they do anything to make the site better for us?
Fuck AdultFriendFinder. I have met women from this site, but it's so bad now with all the fake female profiles that it's no longer worth my time and energy. They won't change unless a lot of us paying guys complain about their laziness.

My Ideal Person:

Ideally, I'd like to see AdultFriendFinder make it harder to post a fake profile. How about asking everyone for a credit card number to be able to post a profile. They don't even have to charge anything to the card unless you choose to become a paying member. They can just use it to verify that you're a real live fucking human being. That would significantly cut down the number of fake female profiles.


I have been meaning to blog about this issue for some time, but the guy who created this profile stole my thunder. He also did it in a more rebellious and daring way, which I really have to admire. Kudos to you, you maverick!

Wow!!! Unbelievable!! I know there're alot of fake profiles, but this person has a good point in everything. AdultFriendFinder has to pay attention more CAREFULLY !!!!

I would suggest to use the driver license instead of credit card, because every license would require photo, right?? Something like that.

You know what's funny is that AdultFriendFinder even approved this profile, lol. Obivously, they didn't really read it carefully, huh?

autumngirl61,

Your ideas are great, but I don't think any of them will ever be implemented. I will explain more in a future blog.

NSAAddict,

You're welcome, and thanks for just being real!

wow..that really was quite an eye opener. I had heard that there were fake profiles/bot's or whatever....but he has a point, a very, very valid point. It isn't right for ~~ this friendly site ~~ to allow this to go on. I agree..they should ask for a credit card number just to prove validity that it is a person.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

well, I agree there are alot of people on here from other websites that use AdultFriendFinder to draw traffic to their own websites, and that it isnt right, but I honestly dont see any reason to believe the profiles he is talking about are fake actually. Unless you see a picture that looks like a pic taken by a professional or off of some xrated site or something, thats the only way to tell if it is not a legit profile. I think alot of men are just impatient or whatever and click through profiles and say "oh this one's fake..." and "thats fake" etc.. or maybe because alot of women just dont reply to emails, that maybe why they think it is fake. I used to be afraid to reply to emails because I was afraid of guys saying something nasty back to me when I say I am not interested, then they came up with the quick reply and I started using that, I thought...'ok, I can do that.', but then I still got just what I was afraid of....abuse,and lots of it, so I set up my autoreply to say that if you dont hear back from me then I am not interested, and decided that I am not going to be abused on this site, cause if a guy doesnt like me, and I go and email him, you know what I get? yeah.....no response so that is exactly what they get from me other than the autoreply, which says it all. Also, alot of people only have so many replies a day, if they are standard members...and replying to all of the people that email them that they arent interested in takes up all of their emails and when they go to email or reply to the ones that they might be interested in later on, they cant do it cause they have used up all of their email priveledges. And some people would say, go purchase an upgrade, well...I did once and after I cancelled it, about a year later, I got charged by accident which overdrew my account, so I probably wont be doing that anymore.

alot of people use numbers behind their profile, and using chica, vixen, and grl are all normal words for a woman to use in their handle on a sexually based profile. That would be like me saying that all men with the word "cock" in their profile and that had numbers behind it was a fake. A member does have to type in a profile to a certain extent, a robot couldnt do it. So any webmaster or anyone just lying to everyone about themselves could use a drivers license or credit card to make the profile, because they know no one else would see that info anyway but AdultFriendFinder. It would be very hard to keep out people who lie about themselves for the most part.

But I have seen profiles that look like they have porn pics on them and wondered whether they were real or not, but they were all men's profiles, not women's.

slidein2meplz:

I agree with you, but as I have learned from subsequent profiles posted by the same guy who posted one that became the subject of my blog, the owners of this site simply do not care about fake profiles now...they see them as a way to lure more men onto this site, hoping that they will pay for a membership.

Shelly_Marie: Personally, I find it very easy to tell which profiles are fake based on the pic alone. My photographic memory of all the years I've spent surfing porn online helps in this regard. I also did add your group to mine.

sexyfitwoman: Thanks for your continued interest in my blogs! So - what was your profile refused for exactly?
