Miss Ellen,

Why do you keep posting this all over MM? I would be surprised if anyone sent money. If they do, tell me who it is so I can tell my story as well and get some $$$.

Tact and diplomacy...

Unfortunately, I readily admit I lack both traits when dealing with "posers" and "wannabes".

I'd prefer to say "you're obviously an idiot" rather than, "is there any chance you're somehow mistaken in your supposition?"

Hi Cheryl Cat,

I had to look several times at your pictures. You and Cheryl Ladd could be twin sisters.

The post must of been purged. Cajun a.k.a. Bobby a.k.a. ??? mentioned he saw someone on AFF. I was asking him what was he doing on AFF.

AJ Miller defrauded me out of $3700. His name was AJMiller66 on millionairematch. I filed claims with my bank and credit card company when it happened in Feb '05. My bank and credit card company credited me back the full amounts. Unfortunately, now Western Union is seeking collection from me because my credit card company deducted the payment.

I am entering Yale Divinity School this Fall 2005, and I can truly not afford to waste paying money I was defrauded out of. I have to pay Western Union $2100. If you can contribute even a $100 in helping me to resolve this online dating fraud scam then I would be very greatful.

Ellen

Curiosity is killing me...what happened?

Six I agree with you. Half the time I don't scroll back to see and read all the negativity. When I do see it I move to another thread ignoring it...not always. If my name was ever mentioned, I might never know. What I don't know can't hurt me right? lol I don't really care though, because I just want to enjoy the forums now.

Orion...yes it does take a cooperative effort that includes everyone to not "feed the trolls" as Ed put it. lol
I have posted this a few times, just a couple of days ago, just as others have too. But it is always to know avail...and it's not just the new people doing it...I noticed a post by Ed the other day asking someone to stop feeding the trolls. This person has been on for several months. Yet even after Ed's post, he continued to do so. We can continue to post that it requires a cooperative effort, but really it is up to each individual to make that decision they will not do it. Many have, but not all. How much more can the rest of us do?

vital components critical to reaching a real understanding of the underlying issues.

My bad, I know.

Changing lanes...

Ignoring unknowns/trolls who post is the key. If a fake profiler can't get anyone to respond, he'll quit doing it.

However, it has one caveat, it requires the complete co-operation of ALL. If even one person responds, then it is all for naught.

Given the opportunity to expound, the trolls will eventually drag others into it. Sometimes the "aggrieved" parties will try to do the same to garner support.

Peace, out.

Orion: Yes, you COULD be a bit more tactful sometimes - it would avoid some feathers being ruffled unnecessarily. No need to call someone an idiot right away - wait until he/she REALLY proves it - LOL... JUST KIDDING!
At the end of the day it's not WHAT you say, it's HOW you say it.
I do enjoy your nice, funny posts though - LOL...

Due to what's been occuring on the forums lately, I feel it necessary to address the title of this thread, 'Who is real and who is fake'? I'm not concerned with who is or isn't. I think that to some degree there will always be fake profilers on this site who may or may not be easy to spot and the chances of eliminating them completely may be slim. For myself, if I were to exhaust all of my efforts in trying to get rid of them I would wear myself out and have little time for other enjoyable activities on here. What does concern me at times is the abuse/negativity that takes place. If what I believe to be an abusive/negative comment is directed towards me or another, or made about me or another and directed elsewhere, regardless of whether it's justified or not, then I do all I can to ignore and avoid the source of it (easier said than done at times esp. if the source is relentless). There are times when I may feel prompted to react, and whether or not I do so and in what manner I do it is a decision I make according to the situation at hand (not all events can be dealt with in the same manner - for myself a diplomatic and tactful approach usually words best, although attempting to avoid stepping on anothers' toes can be trying as well sometimes, lol). If I were also to exhaust all of my efforts in reacting to these comments, or pointing out the inadequacies of others, again I would wear myself out and have little time for other enjoyable activities on here. I apply my position on this to other areas of my life as well. This course of action may not work for everyone, but I feel it is the best for me.



Six: I couldn't have said it better.
I feel exactly the same way.

Interesting concept........A guy with no pics will get more attention because the fantasy of what they may look like is always better than the actual. This true ladies? Sure better than if a guy is tore to the floor, but better than a good pic?

For me I see no pic for a female and it signals 1 of 3 things, none good....1. low self esteem 2. not attractive or at least,3. not very open, and I move on. Look at the 2 ladies below, both attractive and not afraid to show it.



I would have to agree with Speed too. I always wonder why some people don't have photos when I am looking at their profile. Maybe it's something simple like they are technilogically challenged but I think if you're on a site to meet someone you would put in the effort to get your picture out there. I could be totally enamoured by your profile but the physical attraction has to be there for me to pursue anything further.

Angel, don't despair, just take a break from these threads...

I totally agree with you Moon. As long as I have been on this site there have always been battles. However, life is full of conflict, worldwide, nationwide, citywide, and personally amongst families and friends. There is way too much bashing going on lately. I know I haven't been on everybody's favorite lists, but I can do one thing and that is to learn from mistakes and move on. With all these diverse personalities conflict will occur. How we chose to deal with that shows our true character.

Thanks for the compliment Speed. I agree with your 3 points. If I'm searching, I don't pay attention to someone without a photo. The times I have is because they have written an outstanding profile on themselves. But we all have certain things we are attracted to and not attracted to. So it can be scary not knowing what one looks like.
A part of me feels you are talking about Ed (Andy)... no pic and lots of attention...it's different, he's not getting attn in the form of a potential romance partner from anyone...it's all good conversation. Well, not good for some people! lol
On that note, don't you get attention with your posts too? :-)
