Fake Profiles… Maybe..

1 Apr

Every now and again, I log on to #31’s page specifically to see what people have flagged as inappropriate, as he is my buddy who was given the opportunity to be a moderator.

The most common violation is having pictures of something other than themselves,  for example a pet photo.  Of course, I have seen a fair share of  junk photos, as well as some questionable photos from some ladies as well.   Keep it classy, everyone.

I had a fun outing last night with some close girl friends of mine, and we spent a little while moderating together.   I think our overall favorite for the evening was a female profile that was flagged.   There were 3 photos of the girl,  and a blank profile.   On OKCupid, blank profiles are not against the rules..    The comment from the flagger was:

“This photos are from porn!  Trust me i know my porn”

Now, technically, he flagged the profile-  which means the moderators can’t do anything.  There is no violation with the profile.  He should have flagged the photo..  However-  my question here is – Where is the proof?    Sure-  the moderators could image-search the photo on Google – but what does that prove?     Maybe the porn “star” has moved on from the industry and is looking for a relationship now.   Who are we to make that judgment call?  Although that situation is not very likely, I still don’t believe we could really prove otherwise.

To the flagger:   Wow.  I am not saying that watching porn is bad, because I don’t really have strong opinions on it… Do what you will.  I am sorry, if you recognize a girl’s face on a dating website as something you saw while watching porn.. it may be high time to get some other hobbies.

    The rules for moderation say to delete a profile that “Is obviously a spammer (based on photos or essays)” If I do a Google search and find 500 image results on a photo, I vote to delete the whole damn profile. Any guy who doesn’t recognize the photo as stolen thinks he’s messaging a pretty girl, when he’s just opening himself up to getting scammed and spammed.

    If you’re a porn star, and you’ve decided to use OKC to find a bona-fide relationship, take a new picture of yourself, haha.
