I did not know that in a poll you can put comments so I started a thread in forums, copied and pasted it here as to why it is a good idea to charge everyone.

First I have great respect for the founders of this site IF they were the family in Ohio that had to hold a GoFundMe drive to raise money to help buy a house they needed so the husband could see his children by another wife, this site had little advertising (just with other dating sites which may have only bartered advertising) was most likely a labor of love (I found this info on their FFacebook pag, hope it was really the founders and not someone who usurped the page.) Just recently however (maybe this year as I hadn’t been on it a long time) has been inundated with ads (in fact before you get on there is a HUGE ad you need to remove to get into the site) and then constant ads popping up and if you want to send more emails you must pay at least $9 a month. No longer is the slogan, put your wallet away! (My fear is that they are monetizing this site heavily to prepare to sell it to Match.com, which will them with their monopoly will be able to raise prices even higher.)

I admit that this site is a lot better than anything that Match.com owns (they ruined it when they bought Marcus Frind’s Plenty of Fish) where they always say FREE to join, not telling users, a free membership ONLY makes it look like it has a lot of members but otherwise useless as one can’t to anything with it, paid members who should be able to do much with it, can’t even contact the free members and the membership fees are pretty high, Marcus proved with POF, it doesn’t take much time OR MONEY to run it.

The only problem with this site, is because it is free, in my experience most of the members are not real, have fake profiles, I have begged them to please charge a very low fee $1 a month (or $10 annually) that must be paid by a PayPal, credit or debit card linked to a bank account not a prepaid card to filled up by cash, as as sort of filter that this person is legitimate and are connected with an IP number which also can prove a person is legitimate and not working from a bank of computers. I think some scammers if their account is shut down just set up another account. Account could be auto pay until cancelled and they can cancel as late as the day before it renews. Charge new members $2 to set it up including the first month’s fee (people with profiles on here would be grandfathered in and not have to pay the set up fee) and you could freeze it for $1 if dating or not able to check it and if you decide to get out, get it completely cancelled but if you want to join again, you’d have to pay a new set up fee. I think the new slogan would be “Better than free” as you wouldn’t have many if any fake accounts and that would be worth the low fees. They could still have their ads, but not the premium service or have it but let regular members send more than 3 emails a day which seems to be the limit and unlimited for premium.

I read somewhere that CS has 50K, even if only half stayed the owners would still make 25K a month which is not bad. I will put up a poll and see what people think but want your comments now. I know everyone on here is ahem..fiscally prudent ,,and won’t be so keen on paying ANYTHING but if you are serious about looking for a partner and it effectively would eliminate the false profiles wouldn’t it be worth it???

It would not really make any difference ... Scammers are scammers in a pack or as an individual... The charge will defer the very lowest paid scammer .. But in reality the scammer who is scamming . that is their career and livelihood..
