I think its best just to ignore fakes and pretend they arent there.

I've seen other sites with simple solutions....The one that comes to mind is My Space where you can't post on a forum for 7 days after you register. Good Rule!!!
Or....Gee...is this asking too much....A moderator that checks out the complaints. Oh ...I'm really overstepping my bounds now....Sorry ...I won't ask that again. Get a clue MM.
You'll never see my $19.95 a month rewarding incompetentce again, either.


Pete, how does your plan keep fakes from trying to scam us?

PS - the first time I saw Deliverance, I was taken to it as a first date by a boy when I was really young. I was so disgusted and freaked out by it, I never dated him again. LOL (I think it was the "Squeal like a pig" scene that shocked me so much). Another boy took me on a first date to see "A Clockwork Orange." Same result. LOL

I think the best solution is to require an alternate non-preferred membership at a minimal charge of, say $1.00/month which would allow you to simply post comments. This membership would have to be paid with a valid credit card. Surely there's no one here who can't afford $12 a year...

The only reason these misfits continue to prosper here at MM is because they can be completely anonymous with no way of ever determining who they are. A perfect example is the recent removal of HellMatch/Laura fake profiles from the blogs yesterday. 24hrs later the blogs are once again flooded with this loser's NEW fake profile rabbikatzpuzzler....

That is a great idea! Did you write to MM and suggest that?


Life ... not so fast! I'm not a member! And I am allergic to credit cards. I cash all my cheques and royalties and hide the money under a rock in my yard.

Posting retracted.


\Lifesaver in the end that would not make a difference as they would still get on here but maybe just not last as long. It's called "CHARACTER" and if they don't have any you can't give it to them.

The other problem is we all complain about the hostility these trolls seem to thrive on, but it takes forever for MM to "investigate" and remove to offending trolls from the site...


Tomi....it will never fuc*king happen. MM is too clueless.


Is this my little Swiffer desk duster? Mama! Long time! How's it going????

Well Mandalay it's always good when you make that rare appearance...LOL
As you said there will always be fake profiles and although i am the worlds worse at seeing them, i could really care less who they are. As always if they come in with a bang send them out with a bang or better yet "ignore them". Everyones profile is not fake. If you are on enough(in that i am not)you will figure it out eventually. But everyone does not want to be a preferred member. Why pay money to see all the fights when you can get it for free...LOL. Sometimes we as a group go overboard on "discovery". Curb the instinct you never know you just might be talking to a "real person".

There will always be fake profiles/trolls, who gives a s*h*i*t really? Are you going to accuse me of being a fake/troll now too because I'm not a "preferred member," have my profile hidden and no picture uploaded? Go right ahead! It seems that's the standard criteria you've all decided on as determining factors which makes someone a troll, and I've been a participant here for a year and a half.


One thing you are NOT baby is fake....I can attest to that everyone. ;-) As for the rest of this, you are so right on. I didn't quote the rest of your post because it's been over quoted on here already...I know you understand. :-) (oh, thanks for burping in my fuck*ing ear!) :-)

I won't ever be a preferred member on here again either....besides, it's so easy to still email anyway in case you guys didn't know that....anyway, as a long term member and former Forum addict, I should be able to post on any of these forums without any backlash or accusations that I am fake. I only pop in here now and again (rarely anymore)...and now only because Jim posted and told me. ;-)

However, no matter how long I am gone from this place, I can come back here and pick right back up where everything left off. Just like some fuc*king soap opera on TV....the story never changes, just the characters telling it.

In the time I've been here, every single troll has been a non paying member. To become a paid (preferred) member requires one to identify oneself (valid credit card). The unidentified troll has easy, anonymous access and is free to disrupt and pollute the forums and blogs. Once MM finally gets around to closing the fake troll profile (usually after a couple of weeks of disruptive behavior), the troll simply opens another free fake profile the next day and is back in business.

When I first joined there was alot of debate about restricting the ability to post comments in the forums to paying members so as to reduce the troll problem. Unfortunately, there are alot of sincere non-paying members who contribute greatly to the forums (and now blogs) but who, for a variety of reasons can't or don't want to fork out the $20/month (understandable).

I think the best solution is to require an alternate non-preferred membership at a minimal charge of, say $1.00/month which would allow you to simply post comments. This membership would have to be paid with a valid credit card. Surely there's no one here who can't afford $12 a year...

I don't want to be too nitpicky, what with all the sensitivity going around, but I have a comment to you all about our dear "GrapesOfGoodHope."

She kind of cringes when you refer to her as "Grapes." When you think about it, she looks very unlike a grape, however, her beautiful face seems full of hope. So, if you nicknamed her "Hope," for short, it would not only suit her, but it would make her feel more like a woman and less like a small, oval fruit.

Just a suggestion.

Ahhh my Brilliant Katie. You know as well as I do her nickname was derived For more than three centuries, South Africa has been producing wines in its fruitful Cape...The Cape of Good Hope Wine Company imports quality, boutique wines from South Africa's Cape Winelands, a mountainous area with soils and terrain ideal for winemaking. When consumers see the Cape of Good Hope Wine Company's trademarked seal of quality, they can be assured they are purchasing high-quality wines.

That is why Dave4u and I (Weelassy) suggested her nickname many moons ago...She is just as brilliant and sweet as the best wine one can devour. I find it hard to believe she would finds it an insult when one say Grapes....She is the best grape on any vineland.

The Cape of Good Hope Wine Company imports quality...And That she is.

Here is my solution:

Fake profiles you may only enter into relationships, altercations and dialog (that includes winking) with other fake profiles.

Real profiles, I suggest sticking to other real profiles but as you are real and subject to projection and delusion, you can check out a fake profile now and again. I strongly caution you about getting emotionally involved with a fake profile. Of course, I offer tissue and a shoulder should that happen to you.

There, now you kids go play nicely with each other. And remember, you kiss your Mother with that mouth, so be nice. And if you cannot be nice, be funny. Mean people suck.

Hi Everyone!

Hey Blondie Sweetie, (Blonde Indian)lol. I guess we share the same name, still lol.

FYI Everyone, I have spoken to Blonde Indian on the phone, so there is a voice to go with her profile now. She really does exist, lol. And I might add that it was a lovely and sweet voice at that too.

So I see you are back here in the MM forum.

BTW- It was so nice talking with you on the phone on Mother's Day darling! I really enjoyed our conversation too.

Did you get your car situation fixed yet? I'll have to call you soon. Talk to you soon lil lady.
