OK... I've decided to use this as a place to rant about how people ruin/waste the opportunity AdultFriendFinder presents. Here's a list of the things I frequently see that piss me off, and by no means am I suggesting that I'm the first or only person to get pissed off by these things.

Rudeness - that's about the only way to sum it up. When someone takes the time to contact you, I think the least you can do is reply. I'm sure even the most popular person on this service doesn't get so many emails that they couldn't take the time to use the Quick Reply feature on them. It takes two freakin' clicks!

It's like if someone walked up to you at a party, or a sporting even, wherever, and said "Hi! I couldn't help but notice you were standing here looking like you wanted to talk to someone. How about me?" Would you just walk away from them and not even say a word? If so, that's rude.

I also know that some (most women) think that 'no reply' is it's own response and we (mostly men) should just "take the hint." Bullshit! It's rude. Would you teach your children to act that way?

Believe me, no one here is so important that they can't be bothered with two freakin' clicks of their mouse!

Lies - When using the Quick Reply feature, or any other kind of response, why not just be honest? I'm so sick of hearing "Well, I was trying to be nice." Fuck nice! Be honest. If you're not interested, then say so. Don't make some lame excuse about "I'm not looking for married men" when your profile clearly indicates that marital status doesn't matter to you. If you don't like me, my photo, my profile, whatever, just say "No thanks." Two words. It's that simple.

Hyprocrisy - It's amazing how many married women have listings that assume any married MAN is automatically 'cheating.' These aren't couples listings... they're females listing themselves individually. Of course, most of them are really trolling as the front for a couple looking to get into a threesome. Somehow lying about that is preferable to just being honest about it. But the sheer hypocrisy of a married woman assuming I'm cheating on my wife because I swing alone is sickening. "HEY! IF THAT'S THE CASE, THEN YOU'RE CHEATING TOO!" Pot, meet kettle. Again, why can't people simply say what they mean and mean what they say?

Porn Trolls - people who get paid to create listings on AdultFriendFinder, which invariably have handles like Want2SuckU, HotSlut212, UseMyHoles, etc, which are really nothing more than attempts to get your direct email address so they can try to convince you to join some other site to contact them. Usually the scam runs something like this:

1) You see an ad with an incredibly hot photo.
2) You send them an email (more often than not they're a "standard member").
3) They eventually reply and ask you to contact them via email on some free email service.
4) They say they've got a profile with lots of photos on the really great web site and if you join (or subscribe to one of the billions of age verification services) you can see them! And they really want to meet you, and they're so horny!!!
5) You start to get emails from dozens of more people claiming you "met" them on the "personals" and directing you to their website.
6) Repeat step 5 until you eventually switch email accounts.

Porn Posers - people who use photos of porn actors/actresses or glamor models in their listings. Uh, hey... I know what Tara Monroe looks like and I know she's not DoMe62 from Dayton, OH. And I'm not going to believe Jeff Stryker has joined AdultFriendFinder as HotRod6969. If your photo looks too professional, then you're fake. If your profile says you're a 21 year old nympho with 44EE boobs, or an investment banker with a 14 inch schlong, you're fake. If you're afraid to use your real photo, then what the hell are you doing here? Do you really think I'm not going to notice you're NOT Tara Monroe when I get to your door? Stop wasting everyone's time.

OK.. with those things out of the way, let's see how the human race lives down to my expectations next...

welcome to blogging

just so you know, when women use the quick reply men get just as pissed off as when they don't get a reply at all (I must say, they're not fantastic, I myself have never used them). And, I have had weekz where I got hundreds of emails. I for one am not online 24/7 .... I have some other things to do as well, and as far as I have read blogs there's more women in this position....

Hello and welcome to blogland. I'm fairly new to the area, but not to AdultFriendFinder. You have some valid points and I have to admit that I am guilty of not responding to all the emails that I receive.
