Is It Worth It

I have enjoyed my time here on A.F.F. (AKA - Another Fucking Fiasco) I've enjoyed my first experience with this whole "blog" thing. I've "met" some wonderful people in blogland who have made me laugh, think, and... well... hornier than hell! And, even though I haven't been "hookin' up" left and right, there has been at least minimal success in that category, and a couple of leads that someday...

But lately, a lot of the air has leaked from this balloon. The recent blog-jams being just the tip of the iceberg. I have experienced a few problems with my account that, as a gold member at the time, I expected to be addressed. Not necessarily fixed, but addressed. I have sent literally over 100 e-mails to the Powers-That-Be, and have received nary a response. I even went so far as writing an actual letter, sticking it in an actual envelope, and pasting an actual stamp on it before dropping it in an honest-to-goodness mailbox! Still, nothing. Not a word.

I gladly would have taken a "Fuck off and stop bothering us!" That would have at least shown that they know we are out here. But this silent, cold shoulder treatment doesn't sit well with me. I spent too many years in a small biz environment where customer service is always priority #1 to accept anything less.

I am, for the time being, a standard member. How long will this last? I have no clue. Yesterday, for the first time in... who knows?... I didn't even visit the site. I went to bed early, got a good night sleep, and avoided a lot of frustration.

I don't know what the point of this little rant is. But what does that matter? It'll probably get denied entry anyway.

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

well, for one thing when you emai them you will have to end up clicking the submit button three times before it actually gets sent, and when it does it goes to your actual email address that is associated with your account on AdultFriendFinder, it doesnt go to your email inbox on AdultFriendFinder. and they will take close to about 12 hours to get back to you. After you click submit the first time, you will be sent to a page that has a big long gray box on it and that is where they want you to read through the 'q & a's' first before sending an email, so just click on submit again on that page and then you will be sent to another page where they want you to check your email to make sure you dont want to add anything else to it, etc and then you click on submit to that too. Just make sure that when you send the emai that you are logged into your profile, so that they know where to send the email too, and like I said it will go to your outside email addy that is associated with your profile account. It should be from team @ AdultFriendFinder. I have sent them emails and always get a response....but also, you know you can call them too dont you? just go to my account and click where you would order a private chat room or a search listing highlight and you will see their toll free phone number on the order form page. I have called them with problems with my account in the past when I had a silver membership and they helped me out with no problems at all. I was very satisfied. Maybe there was just some kind of glitch or something in the email you sent, or like i said..if you didnt go through and have to click three times to submit then it wouldnt have gone there anyway. as far as the snail mail, they probably get pretty backed up on that, so it might be a while before they get to it anyway.

I think they should make it more obvious that you have to click 3 times before it gets sent and all, alot of people probably never get a response because they dont scroll all the way down on that long page to see that there is another submit button and they never get a response.

At least stay a standard member and keep us up to date with your latest comings and goings. Don't go away forever!

Hey Doc, sorry to hear that.
I agree with SexyRycheBabe - try to keep in touch with us and don't go away forever. Hope you can get things sorted out soon.

Come here baby, let me hold you. *pulling your head down to my breast and patting your head*

Let me make it all better for you. I can't do anything about the site, but I sure can do other things to take your mind off your AdultFriendFinder mess. *grin* I love that, Another Fucking Fiasco.

If you need to upgrade, go silver.

I have been nothing but standard since I got here, and it's really not that bad. I get all the frustrations that paying members do at none of the cost. lmao

reminds me of that song.."should I stay or should I go".....I feel the same way often times. It's very frustrating to post and then it doesn't show up for 24+ hrs and even comments take forever...or never show at all. But I have you and SRB's yahoo' we can still touch base for 24 and Rescue Me.... I wish every night was MONDAY one of these days I'm going to buy every DVD set of each season.... and of Rescue Me's too. Can't get enough of either show.

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

mshuny - Yes, I do feel a bit better by ranting!

KPB - You have much knowledge to share, oh Yoda of AdultFriendFinder! LOL!!!

SRB - Leave you???? Never!!!!!

Dusty - Been silver, will probably end up back there. Thanks for the hug.

Shelly_Marie - Thanks for the info.. but been there, done all of that. I sent e-mail to EVERY department option - mulitple times. Spoke to customer service. He gave up and suggested I try downloading an Adware program. (Have one, run it weekly) And, although I am logged into the site under my username, I can't even view my own profile!!!! I worked 7 years in a small, sw developement company, making stops in sales, support and installation. If we responded the way this company does, we would have gone out of biz in about a week!

STILL waiting for my 1st reply to my 100 or so e-mails.
ih8usrnames, Luvwetcunt1000 - Thanks for listening to my rantings! Glad to know I'm not alone.

sweetneeds2 - "Kisses/Hugs/Licks/SUcks...ahem I have to stop now" Don't stop, you can't leave me... like this!!!

slidein - Sorry I haven't made it to post about this week's "24." I've been away from the cpu, sulking!

Down at the bottom of the page by LOG OFF, there is a Report Abuse button...that's where I click to write an email to the site and they have answered me every time. I've always been a standard memeber and for what I pay, I've gotten decent service from these people.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Daphne - That's a great suggestion; think I'll give it a try -thanks!

Kiera - I don't think I'm going away. It's more of a "paying member vs non-paying member" debate. Besides, how could I EVER leave you??? I'm addicted to ya, baby! And how would I get the updates on my old home without you?

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

Wow Doc... there goes my post for the night... it was going to be "Should I Stay or Should I Go", guess there's something in the A.F.F. water. I feel the same way you do, it's just not the same anymore, I visit less often and the blogging nightmares are ridiculous. You would think that they would take our well earned money and fix the system, but no that would be too easy. I lose my silver button next week, and honestly I don't know if I'll continue my membership, go standard or just go away. That's what I was supposed to figure out tonight, lol, great minds think alike I hope you stay, at least in bloggy land, if not I'll miss you terribly
