Straight Talk

So here is the deal. The IM system on AdultFriendFinder, to use a technical term, sucks. You probably don't need me to tell you that if you've used it. But you many not realize just how badly it sucks. So here are some tidbits:

1 - It is so sloooow

2 - The little icon that indicates a person is talking stay on long after they close their IM window.

3 - The system will sometimes tell you an IM invitation was declined, when in fact it wasn't.

4 - Clicking refresh on the IM window will close the connection.

Now think about this. I see your IM icon on, so I send you an invitation to chat. You never answer. So, do I assume you aren't interested, or that you weren't really online? Even if it had told me my invitation was declined, I can't really be sure you declined it. Should I send another one? Or leave you alone?

I usually keep trying, at least until I've done it enough times, over enough different days, that I'm sure they had to see at least one of my messages. But I'm sure a lot of people see all of them. They must get really annoyed with me.

And I get annoyed with AdultFriendFinder.
