OkCupid

OkCupid

2/1/18

This site was bought out by a huge conglomerate not too long ago. They then started using a Match.com blacklist and began shadow banning people .... messages to and from people would be throttled if you were on that list. (I received messages from one woman a whole week late.) Then: no messages. AT ALL. As of 2018, they have changed their message system (again) and now they openly hold back any message you send unless the recipient has already pressed like and you have AT LEAST matched with her. It is now the equivalent of an internet ghetto (for most male users) that is designed to waste your time and give you a false hope. Basically it is a eugenics engine run by a technocratic, global company. The Technocrats have a special hatred of white Christian men or anyone who is conservative. BEWARE.

I've used Mingle2 for many months and with ONE exception, every single woman I talked with was either a prostitute, scammer, or a someone who was pretending to live in San Jose, CA -- but was actually living five or six states away. Very early on, most of them will say "I don't use this site much -- email me here instead" ..... red flag.

When they give me a phone number, I do reverse lookup. Almost every single number is a VOIP number or is registered thousands of miles away.

AND FINALLY: read other reviews for Mingle2. They appear to use a blacklist (as do other dating websites like match.com, okcupid, and christian mingle.) If if are on this blacklist, you can still use the site, but messages are throttled, some of the better profiles are completely invisible to you, and/or you do not receive any matches. Facebook and Match.com have had blacklists since at least 2005, but since 2016 more and more dating sites started using blacklists of some kind. It is a soft EUGENICS program. I believe you are more likely to wind up on this black list if you are a conservative Christian male.

They reformatted this site one year ago and all the pages look different. Ever since they have made these changes, I have not had ONE single match and I've only had one profile view (In a whole year's time). I used to get several matches per week and two or three profile views per day. This is not the only website that does this, but you would expect a Christian website to be run more honestly.

After Match.com acquired HowaboutWe.com, I got a mysterious message telling me that all HowaboutWe accounts were being transferred to Date.com ..... I was no longer able to log in. It turns out they were just trying disguise the fact that they are using a black list to ban people from their dating website. I hate these EVIL people. Match.com took 50 dollars from me in 2005, and yet I was never able to use the website. Now I am banned from HowaboutWe.com. There is no customer service and no way to find out why I'm banned.

The woman I talked to turned out NOT to be a doctor, but a nurse practitioner. I paid to talk to a doctor, so I was a little upset by this. The site administrator would not tell me if the person I'd just talked to was a doctor (they said that someone would call me back) ..... I found out by doing my own web search. I thought about disputing the charge, but I later decided to let it go. The N.P. did give me some useful advice --- I was told to look for an integrative medicine specialist, as this type of doctor is more likely to be open to alternative treatments. I will not use this site again, however.

One of the few places that still sell coffee pods. These pods come in different sizes and the 10g pods are ideal for the Bunn MC machines. Both of my orders came promptly. The website makes it easy to browse through ground coffee or just pods of the size that you need.

The guy is right. Sometimes they ban people for little or no reason or you cannot use the site for technical reasons (someone at VF decides to ban your I.P. address). That being said, I've been on the site for eight years and met some nice people. I continue to have use of the site (for the time being anyway).

Truly EVIL website. Click on "Q and A" (to the right of "reviews") to see my experience with FACEBOOK.

My initial experience with this site was pretty good and I did talk to a couple of women, but there have been some draconian changes recently. When I try to do a search for women ages 18-35 years old, the search range automatically truncates to 35-38. I'm 45 years old but not really interested in dating divorced, older women with kids. For some reason they have deemed me unworthy of even communicating with younger women. It's making me paranoid. In the "help" section it even says something like "zero tolerance for rude messages -- if your account is deleted, you cannot ever sign up again". I'm still awaiting an explanation from customer service.

Interesting and informative website with many products listed --- however.... user reviews are screened and my review of a humidifier was never posted (Pure Guardian H4500 ....... shows ZERO user reviews and one critic (employee) review.) Since I believe scathing reviews are useful -- and they won't post them --- the site has less utility. (They could always add a comment and rebut a review if they don't agree with it -- but you just won't see it --- because they won't post it)

They have live on-line chat also, but after about 5 minutes -- they just ignore you and move on to a different customer ....

I posted a long and thoughtful review on a Crane humidifier and went through the verify process. The review was never posted. If you look on the website most products (like this humidifier) have NO reviews. All negative reviews are deleted and you only see five star reviews. NOT honest. Incidentally, the use a third party to manage customer reviews .... and you cannot delete a review once it's submitted (unlike Amazon) because they consider the reviews to be their property. You won't get objective critiques of any product on this website.
