Why do fishes need power?
Electricity actually can be kind of dangerous in water…
Take care Marcus, we need you – hope to find My Love on your site…hopefully soon….so good luck with fixing that connection…cheers!:)
Hi from East Vancouver! Just a quick note to say how much I respect what you’ve done with your project. I’ve only been on your POF site for a little while but appreciate your approach. We’re here for you, don’t you worry. U.
Congratulations on the site. Normally it works phenomenally. As someone previously mentioned – I didn’t know you had a blog to post comments. Not a bad thing to mention on the website for feedback, improvements, etc.
So, as “jo bob” said, “When will it be up?”
One last comment: Chat amoung my fellow SoCal POF’ers indicates that the local ‘mixers’ postings got banned and they had to start their own site. Someone said it was because of advertising the mixers on Meetup.com. If true, and since they aren’t your competition (even though you allow other dating sites to advertise on your site) maybe a little overreaction? It sure was convenient to find out about the mixers on POF. Plus the Meetup information would only attract more people to your site!
Hey Markus, what’s with all the site problems these past few weeks? I realize this power outage is beyond your control, but the site’s been sort of useless twice already in the past two weeks. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I hope it all works out, maybe it’s time to invest in some new hardware or software?😉
Despite the couple of issues though, I among many others appreciat what you do for us, it’s a fantastically popular service with the added benefit of being free. Congrats on the success Markus!
Today at 9:30am a fire broke out in an underground Backup power station in Vancouver. The fire was finally put out at 2pm. BC Hydro has not yet given an estimated time of recovery. This may not be fixed until tomorrow.
Actually, in the couple of years I’ve been a member, this is the first time I’ve experienced the PoF site being down.
Glad I researched it, was about to blame my own ISP( dialup provided by the Amish LOL)…hope it’s fixed soon…
Hey Markus, POF is a great idea. I’m getting frustrated, (in more ways than one!), with the recent service anomolies and now this. I really hope you can ressolve this problem soon. Any guess? And I’m still wondering what happened last week. Couldn’t some explanation be offered when someone logs in? Not for the present problem obviously. Just wondering.
Here’s one possible silver lining: The reporter for one article (above) is asking for stories of people affected by this. (See very bottom of page.) Yours would be an ideal story, showing how Vancouver’s reach is truly world wide, and how just your one website outage affects X million of your users. You could get some sweet publicity from this.
I found your blog from the Yahoo! Answers page that was created for the PoF outage, which is where Google is sending people.
— Here Fishy (a brand new user; just signed up yesterday!)
Outages suck, but it’s great that you told the world the true story. I used to work for a tech company that NEVER fessed up about problems. Their “network status page” was the biggest fantasy I’ve ever seen. Kudos to you!
Maybe we need to send him to Home Depot! I thought everything in Vancover required a backup power source heck I know some cabins with solar panels and Battery Backup!
Great Site see you backup and running soon!
Thank you for such a great dating site. I just started using a few days ago and rarely go to myspace anymore. I’m sure it will be up soon. People need to chill
out, stop complaining, it is FREE after all. Stop being codependant to your computer! Think positive, send out some love energy to Marcus and plentyoffish and I guarantee it will be up faster.
Peace and Love to the World
How ebarasing. Big web site like yours and dont have a back up gennie. Thought you have learnt your lession last time.
maybe time for a server change to some thing more reliable. mind you if your only paying a Few $’s for a php sql based server im not supprised.
The ammount of money you made isnt it about time you run you own server and employed a proper tekkie insted…. So one who knows what there doing. or a company who doesnt have there fingures up there ass ….
sorry but finding it very funny hope no bugger hacks your site cos if this brought you down god knows what would happen is some one DDOS attacks your site.
While back online, the site seems to be frozen. No new matches are being shown, and the “viewed me” list is frozen as well. Again, this annoying problem. I wonder if Markus is aware, and is working on a way to resolve this annoyance.
I thought only the Houston profiles were frozen, but apparently everyone else is experiencing that problem as well. Funny, I can’t see online status or IM status or anything else locally, but viewing all profiles in the state (Texas) seems to be workin gjust fine. Strange…
Perhaps it is time you considered two datacentres, one in North America, and one in Europe. With a bit of clever DNS or a global load balancer you can load balance between the two based on IP geography and have all users fall back to another datacentre if one goes down.
Of course, your hardware and infrastructure costs will double, but so will your capacity, and you will have redundancy to boot.
I too am having problems with POF.. my original profile is gone and it doesnt show on the site as ever having been an account…I have made a million profiles since then.. get emails saying Welcome! and all the other info I will need.. and then its gone again. I downloaded Firefox and got to use POF for 5 minutes then it was gone again. I went to a friends house and used her PC and her email addy as well and same thing happened….. is it me or POF?
Tina, I am having the exact same problems. I have had my profile deleted twice in the past couple weeks. Today I have tried to register numerous times, even with various email addresses. I get the welcome email, but my profile never gets published and therefore I am never able to fully use the site.
Im unable to log in to pof no matter what I do or what settings I change in tools,internet options ect and have never had a prob with pof until the last few days,Im still gettin emails sayin I have messages but cant log in to check them or do anything else,anyone know whats goin on??
I’ve been on POF for a few months now. A couple of days ago I tried to log in (I had just met someone) only to find that my sign-in name wasn’t working and neither was my password. I typed in my email address to have my password sent to me, but when I checked my email I had nothing from POF. Someone I met from pof gave me a call and said my messages to him were gone and so was my profile. I have since tried to create a new profile TEN TIMES!!!!!! and it will not go through. I create a page and its gone the second after I create it. I waited a couple days and tried again today……. Now I can’t even get passed the registration page. It keeps telling me to choose the gender of each person in the box shown…..I’M NOT BLIND……and I can certainly tell the difference between a man and a woman. I even tried SEVERAL different user names. What is going on? I’ve tried contacting you, but you have not responded. This is very frustrating. Pease help!!!!!
i hope this site is shut down for good many sercets kept between man and wife and this site is the worste place ever all this does is casue other to chat and cheat not good be nice if the servers blew up lol have a life people this site is a relationship destroyer im, praying that it is down for good
upset husband — Grazi is right, they will find a way to cheat, and POF is not the only site out here to use for that purpose. POF seems to be the least sleezy one I’ve seen! And I mean that in the best way possible, lol.
Well let’s just resume having fun right here. I like Web servers that work consistently well; profiles that entertain; cute angels; women who don’t do ridiculous poses; current photos; long walks on the beach; and the sound of raindrops, but not when a-fallin-on-my-head.
Have you never heard of a back up Generator? As I read this thread this isn’t the first time. You’d think that after the second time you’d invest in a power generating system. I love the site, I’d like to reply to the mail that I have. Please resolve ASAP. Thanks.
YOU MEAN TO TELL ME I SMASHED THE @#$% OUT OF MY BRAND NEW LAPTOP FOR NOTHING???!!!!!!!! 😉 hey marcus, if you can find in your heart to buy me a new laptop because your rich and im poor, i would really really really appreciate it :))
This is a hoot. To everyone who LIVES on that site, it’s time to learn that there’s a real world out there, complete with other living human beings LOL!! Get off the computer and meet REAL people, not just chat friends.
Sorry, me again🙂 I sense a lot of sweating in the dark basements of millions of homes. Listen … I’m being serious here … there are real people outside of your homes. Just for a lark, go out and see if I’m right!! It’s crazy … humans walking around. And guys, the female forms will even say hello to you … yes I know it’s crazy. Get out and try it. It may just become addictive.
1. For most of us, it’s a free site – so quit whining…..
2. Its not about “one man” running the site.. it happens to google, yahoo, our own power grid etc… don’t let your ignorance proceed you.
There were generators on the grid when NY went out, guess what? THEY DID NOT WORK (duh….)
3. If anything, this just creates a bit more desire, bit more time for your match to say… hey, i want to converse with him/her.. or maybe it will turn them away and you will become psycho and we will see you on CNN tomorrow – either way, relax and have a glass of whine.. and unless you’re paying, STOP bitching.
Have you seen the real humans where I live!? I’d much rather deal with the digtial ones. Just kidding. As far as your TV I have it and and holding it for radsom. Night all hope it is resloved in the morning. But seriously, get a generator, the US gov sell them at bargin basement prices with enough wattage to power a tent city or a small villiage. Nighty Night.
I’m sure Markus has better things to do than log on to here and pacify your issues with the site being down. Chill folks, it will be up and running in due time. Some of you are so ungrateful. You take advantage of a free service and then bitch and moan if and when it goes down. I’ve been using the site for over two years and it’s never been down when I signed in. Relax already. I’m sure….. he doesn’t need you people telling him that it’s too big for one person to run. He’s come this far without your input, he’ll continue to do just fine without it. IF you are not happy with the site having issues from time to time, book it. I’m sure Laval life and EHarmony will be happy to see you.
love the site great work, ive made plenty of friends in such a short space of time, whoever this Marcus guy is i hope a relaxes and takes the day off, im sure that we can all live without POF for one day
Dude makes 10K$ a day letting us browse the people store. He runs it on one server. It’s his third successful company. Site goes down for a day, and every narcissistic blonde bimbo in the world comes here to post her entries defending poor widdle marcus from the few bland “hey, where is the site?” posts….and these same bimbos even post their pictures.
So, bimbos find ways to hit on even website owners….if they are wealthy.
That is the lesson of POF: If any girl on it is attractive and over the age of 29, she likely there to make life miserable for the next guy dumb enough to fall (again) for looks. Get a clue guys: Pretty women who need dating sites to advertise their faces have perfected the art of screwing over genuine guys.
Remember: It all feels the same when the lights go out, and a happy, kind, nice, smart woman is sooooooooooooooo much better company than a bottle-blonde shrew.
Markus is very unfair. I share a computer with a roommate and Markus sent him a threatening letter for using two names. We’re two different people! He deleted my friend’s account even though he had a totally different email. Aren’t people allowed to have friends use their computer?? I guess technology picked this up but even if we had 5 people using the computer, what’s wrong with that?
so the site has been down for a few hours, not many sites go down this long, will the advertisers get there money back for lost time,everyone is lossing out because some retard cant run a site when something goes wrong, as for grumpy barbie, she has a lot to say sitting here telling people to go read a book lol whydosent she just go read a book instead of sitting on here the fucking idiot
Awe…Master of none, who’s the fucking idiot? Who got the letter? I’m surprised you can type with all that sucking, crying, bitching and moaning you do! You’re in the area of the pond where the fungus grows, aren’t youuuuu? Come on, you know you are!!
I note that you’ve been here pretty much all night. I suspect its because you usually spend most of your nights on POF trolling for that 1000th hit on your favorites list. I hope you get it because one day you’ll wake up and realize you’re not the pin-up girl you think you are, and you’ll have nothing to show for it. Develop other interests.
oh Canadian you’re so silly sometimes, it’s those damn mail notifications that keep bringing me back. I hate it when you make assumptions as you always do. Quit following me around. Also, stop being so bitter, this “pin-up girl” said NO. Get over it. Anyway, I’ll adjust my mail notifications so I don’t have to be subjected to the stupidness that continues to go on here to no end. Toodles noodles.
I also didn’t bother clicking on Putzes link, one can only assume that he’s trying to find other ways to amuse himself with POF being down. Well I’m sure whatever it is, it’s funny, to him. Small things, small minds, you know how it goes.
To all who don’t understand the web server is working, and it is alive. There are ohter problems at hand. Why don’t you all try looking up traceroute and ping and try them out i am sure you ill find some interesting facts. Not to mention, he may be out on a hot date with a great girl. and the SNMP alerter he uses may not have even sounded.
You should also look at where his servers are and see how many he has….It has to be more than one due to the percentage of the market he holds. There are more people hitting that website in one hour than you want to think about.
Not to mention the SLA we get for free is pretty killer. 10hr/wk for free for what we get, think it through people.
The moral of the story is….Get educated before you complain about something you know nothing about.
Not to mention, if i found a great girl…..I certainly wouldn’t be wasting my time on you guys.
I’m not even a member of POF🙂
I have one friend in particular who is, and she’s whining tonight. So not sure what you’re talking about saying “no” to me LOL.
Nite all, and I hope your toy is running soon.
Grumpy Barbie: have another vat of wine, dear. There is no truth to your belief that each of your blonde hairs is tied directly to its own brain cell….it won’t matter if you kill all of your brain cells…your hair will still be there, and it will still be blonde, never fear.
Computer People: I have discovered the problem behind the failure of the site. See the title of the most recently dated post by Markus himself:
I’m with you gbcutie…not to mention the regular folks I chat with on a daily basis. I miss them. Will it be up again? I wish we got an email informing us of this. All night I thought I had computer issues and it wasn’t my computer at all. I miss my pof friends.
gb: Right, no harm…but no real benefit either. Study patho at a coffee shop, or bar, and you’d get a coffee, or beer bought for you…by a smart guy who’s interested in chatting about patho. Then, AFTER Ted Bundy gives up on you, you’ll meet a nice normal guy that gives back rubs and picks you wildflowers on Thursday.

no no no harem but a few familiar faces that I chat with while I’m online.
I’m so used to chatting with them that I feel like pof is going to be down forever and I cannot the convo. For those who judge us for using this pof.site, I am one that works 2 jobs (60+) and look forward to chatting at the end of the night and making arrangements to meet my friends.
Besides I’m not much for bars/drunks so that’s not an option I wish to explore. Pof is not just a dating site, its a form of global communication for some of us and yes it would be nice if we have gotten a warning that there is a problem. First I thought I had computer problems, that my antivirus didn’t do the job and Second, I had to google to find this site to learn that I was not alone. Thx all for allowing me to vent. How long does this usually last b4 it comes back up?
Dear putzes, Trust me. I spent 6 hours studying patho in 2 different coffeehouses today. Last night (at a coffeehouse) some guy sat down next to me and insisted on discussing the hazards of red dye #40, while resting his CD player, I mean discman, on my health assessment notes. My notes were offended and I was bored.
Time seems cheap because there is so much of it, but that is an illusion, and a bad one at that. Time spent well, living actively for and with people, is the only barometer that isn’t an illusion here.
We don’t all live in the People’s Republic of Boulder, Putz. You’ll be glad to know that I do recycle, and you’d do well to expand your myopic idea that life lived well is how you live your life. Studying your ass off to work on the oncology unit is not so bad either last time I checked…
to anyone who is computer/internet knowledgable: how is it possible in 2009, with all the immense and rapid advances in technology, that a site with millions of members, is unable to be accessed for over 7 hours?! that seems extremely baffling.
To zen guerrilla: Apparently plentyoffish is hosted on ONLY one server site. The site had a MAJOR outage of electrical power — meaning EVERYTHING went down. It’s likely a MAJOR MAJOR web hosting facility with 100’s or 1000’s of websites on their servers.
Sites like Yahoo, Google, etc. have DOZENS of sites distributed in DOZENS of sites and cities – each site backed up 2 or 3 times. Plentyoffish apparently has only ONE site — and it went black!
I’ve spent a significant amount of time on Oncology units, and, no offense, but the people who actually work there will tell you, to a person, to get out and live life, and that oncology units, and the unfathomable events that unfold there, are not the point of life.
Oncology units and funeral homes are not places to be chosen, but to be accepted. The people with the internal strength to work there are a gift to those who have to be there, but they are underpaid and underappreciated.
again…why is it that no one from POF is coming onboard to say what has happened, what is presently happening and how long they expect the site to be down? COMMUNICATION….the site failed to let the ones that keep the site mobile know of the status.
Hey PUTZ if you don’t like dating sites then disregard them if that works for you. stop dictating to others how to live their life since you don’t know much about what goes on in my own life.
no scroll mine for a better one …..lol
kay this does really suck … i just wanna go on pof to fart around for some reason
and this down-time is a killer. Can sumbody just say when it will be back on 4-real pleases!!!!! j/k

U P D A T E:
I just got word from Markus that the entire POF database has been compromised – in other-words deleted. He goes on to say: Hi Alinux, its markus here, I’ve been trying for hours to recreate my account.
So, I’d say once he figures how to add himself back-in, we can all recreate our own accounts. Awesome NEWS eh? Soooooooooooooo daaaaaaamn happy again🙂
excuse me if I’m wrong but isn’t the MAJOR ELECTRIC POWER OUTAGE stated to have happened in July 2008 at the top of this page? I’m referring to the events that have happened today JUNE 8, 2009 which is now JUNE 9, 2009 with NO WORD from the site that an outage has occurred.
If it was a power outage, we would not get a connection refused/taking to long to connect error. You would also not be able to ping or trace route. There is something up on port 80..it is like the server is not serving pages like it should be
technically, EVERYONE has cancer. it’s just that some people’s bodies unsuccessfully fought it, while others are still putting up a good fight. cancer isn’t something you “get”, it’s something all of us already have. it just hasn’t manifested itself in a lot of us… yet.
chao, my man… that is EXACTLY why i’m so pissed. i’ve gotten laid 4 times because of POF (no lie) in the past 3 months. that site is a goddamn miracle! that’s why i’m dying for the problem to be fixed!!!
Quote:Plenty Of Fish Server Down:Plenty Of Fish.Com Site Not Working – Plenty of Fish/www.plentyoffish.com is a Canadian based online dating service.There are over 10 million members on the site and inscription is for free but you must be over 18 to register.The site is currently out of service due to heavy traffic.
That’s the latest update on Plenty Of Fish Server Down.
So now we know. Any the sucky part is i upgraded 3 days ago to premier. My
few dollars looooooooost 4-ever unless you ppl start deleting ur accounts, I wont be able to get back on. So pls spread the word! j/k
lets take a look at a few factors. 1100000 online at 3:30. 4pm most college students are home by now and logging on to see whos messaged them. crash happens before 5pm and maybe markus just happens to be away for the day so the crash is prolonged into the early morning.
Not necessarily. Large systems with much more infrastructure than this can experience a similar unavailablity when they are recovered after some kind of failure. The problem arises when the load rates hit never-before-seen levels as every single user attempts to login, repeatedly, at around the same time. Prior to a crash like this, the user load was reasonably spread out over a 24 hour period of people checking their email, etc. Now, everyone is simultaneously and continuously attempting to log in and check.
This is a relatively common problem in large system design and operations….if Markus has not designed for it, it is the equivalent of a denial of service attack…..and if he lost some of the memory on his server and needs to reload the cache of 10 million full images, he may be offline for awhile.
This kind of thing happens relatively often on the web….the term “WORLDWIDE WEB” becomes very real when you are actually serving people that are physically around the entire globe, in all time zones.
If that is the problem, the system may recover late tonight after North America goes to sleep (I’m assuming North America is the majority of his user base).
google alerts did indeed generate a blog.
they quote “The site is currently out of service due to heavy traffic”
OUT OF SERVICE meaning what? Did we lose our profiles too?
With all those millions he should of had a backup plan.
thanks again putzes. i sure as hell hope you’re right. i do NOT want to go through the hassle of creating another profile. i was damn happy with the one i had up already. it got me very good results (and the best part… it was all true). goodnight.
I would also bet that if he had a hardware failure of some type, and he has fixed the hardware problem, the current “offline” situation is because he is reconstructing some aspect of the site that needed to be reconstructed before it will handle a full load of users, and he may be encountering new problems putting the site back online under this current load of every single user trying to simultaneously login.
If the site comes back up, and you don’t find your profile, I would suggest waiting a day or two before panicing…..he may have to “brute force” reduce the load on the system by restoring blocks of users at a time…and not all at once. If your profile is missing when POF comes back up, don’t panic, don’t create a new profile…wait a few days and then try again.
I think is all my fault. I got Marcus (we’re buddies, eh) really drunk yesterday morning, a stripper bar where we met some mexican midget nuns and one thing led to anouther. There was a huge party up in the condo. Some Aussie girl ended up sitting on the computer in the living room. I woke up at six pm on the deck with a beaver on my face and hearing Marco yelling about some poofter website crashing. What happened?
Me too….just checking every so often to see if there are any updates. Its funny cause I don’t really get on that much anymore, but I evidently got a couple of emails today and now its driving me crazy that I can’t check em….oh well, probably some short bald guys anyways.
Just returned from a date with a classy POF woman. Dear Putzes is incorrect. I can PING the POF site by name and by IP with a packet of 1500 bytes of data in avg 98 milliseconds. Therefor it is not DNS (not that you said it was, I’m just ruling that out); it is not due to server load, similar to a DOS attack because ping would fail in that case. It could be an error by the new programmer Marcus hired two weeks ago. I wonder if he outsourced oversees for the programmer.
Ah, it came back to life as I typed this post. Hey girls, read up on excanuck for a good laugh!
My god, his google account will be small for torrows view! Have to get it fixed soon before we have to pay for another add-on.😉 Premier account? How come this hooker call girl chick in my home town got one given to her? Is it because I’m male? Wheres my free one? Most of the girls in my area recieved free premier status. Whats up with that? Is there a try before I buy option, just in case premier isn’t for me?
I assume the hooker girl in my home town is serious about dating since she recieved a free premier account.
Should email us when the site comes back on. Getting sick of refreshing this other browser here.🙂
I miss this page (think i’ll become a regular …haha) oh, and marcus didn’t
ban my IP ..stupid me was trying to use the ‘less than’ greater than’
symbols – not allowed. Marcus is a total cool rich guy from Canada…. (wouldn’t
of known – wasn’t for this wordpress log).
Funny how sum ppl on POF plea they may be deleting there accounts🙂
Lets just all hold hands together and watch a sun-rise from the bottom of
the sea – Peace, love and all that other good shite to us🙂 byeeeeeee now
Marcus is a total cool rich guy from Canada? Well, I wouldn’t say total cool rich guy, but I would say total rich guy for sure. I don’t think cool would fit into his personality, lol. Maybe a total nice rich guy would be more fitting.
Although some creatures of the deep put off light, even light gets put off from hot magma mixing with sea water deep below. All this light is to faint to be seen by the human eye. Shrimp that deep have no eyes, but they may have sense organs (striped line on there backs or sides) that may act as eyes that deep below.
Sunlingt can only go through the first hundred meters of the oceans top water. After that, its very dark…then pitch black.
Its amazing life can develope that deep. Life finds a way I guess.
Still down at 4:00 east coast, USA. I am bugged that they took away instant message and wish he could find another company. I understand that they withdrew it, not Markus himself. It was great to be able to feel someone out this way before emailing them. Saved a lot of wasted time. Oh well.
I keep getting a “Server Too Busy” error which is, I believe, what happened last time right before it went down. Oddly though, it seems to be working, just incredibly slow and sometimes the page won’t load. Usually it’s super quick.
Occasionally a page will load but mostly I’m just getting “Server Too Busy”.
It’s looking like Markus is losing interest in the site. Perhaps he has earned enough to retire (who knows!). Anyway, don’t be too surprised if it gets sold to one of the large dating sites and converted to a “paid only” site. If it’s match, yahoo, or any of the large ones I refuse to join. A very large percentage of profiles on those sites are phony profiles – created to get people to join. 🙂
re: Plentyoffish => The PHOTO UPLOAD function does not work. I tried both the Flash uploader and the original uploader. I tried using newest version of Firefox and Internet Explorer v8.0 with both types of uploaders on each type of browser.
I upgraded to the newest version of Flash. I tried changing the photo file extension to .jpeg instead of .jpg. I tried editing the photos with Paint Shop Pro to make sure the compression was not set to more than 5 (it was set to 1). I made sure the photo sizes were within site guidelines ( less than 3000 pixels wide, more than 100 pixels wide).
I am writing to update you on the general problems people have been encountering on ur website recently. My profile was wiped out without a reason, and i ve tried uploading several profiles , but it gets deleted minutes after the profile has been put up. Doing a quick research on Google showed me that thousands of people have been having the same problem too.
I think it might be a a technical problem with your site.
The question is
1 ‘ HOW do we upload a profile now without getting deleted?
2. What are you doing to solve this problem.
she asked, almost angrily. The lights and the flowers. She would not seek it. He finished dressing, quickly, pitilessly. Well, metallurgy is not exactly—what shall we say? I cant help what people think—if they think at all! Her face was composed and empty. I have not seen him since.
His skin—and hers—had already sprouted beads of oily lubrication to ease the grinding of bodies. It is akin to the spell that has protected him for the last two decades. Never before had the nearness of a child made her want to be a mother. Radins mental warning didnt help. Frustration and anger buzzed, blurring her vision. He pulled her into a hug. She rubbed her belly. Gala teased, tossing a floor pillow at him. Eyrhaen stared at the closed door, hands fisted at her sides. What was that swelling feeling deep inside her chest? Tykir had a warmer heart than that. Brevin had stepped aside, a huge shadow beside Tykirs shoulder. Does this mean you forgive me? Both Brevin and Tykir burst out laughing. She wiggled, and he stopped. Let me sleep for a while then Ill work on convincing you some more. She could have enslaved the raedjour. But the look on your face tells me theres more. I only want to be with you, Nialdlye. He watched, eyes hooded, as she climbed to her knees, then edged toward him.
I have been unable to log on for weeks. I have notification of mail, but can’t access it. I have tried changing settings, browsers, etc. Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening? This is the only site – that I am aware of – that I am having this problem with.
Any help would be greatly appreciated – thanks!!
Hey Marcus what are you doing about the serial killer on your fish site that has been killing women. How is it that its not all over the place yet. Your system sucks and it can not stay free forever. You will be forced to charge a fee to stop these maniacs from killing again. I recommend a paid service. Marcus is only init for the money the ads provide for him. I have met marcus in person years back and he really needs to do something before he finds himself in a bad place.
What is going on with the site today.. Been down since this afternoon. Finally let me back in a few minutes ago, when went down again. The worst time for this to happen, as I had a date tonight and all the info is on the site!!
I know how you feel Barbara! I was able to login just a minute ago and then it was off line again. It appears that the website has been modified. I work in a computer environment and it’s a good idea to post a message that the site will be down for maintenance or some kind of warning. It really has been down too long……..
1 It’s a free site the the man is running pretty much on his own.
2. It you’re going to go out with someone I certainly HOPE you care enough to write the information down somewhere.
3. It’s a web site! If your whole life revolves around it there’s a problem that has nothing to to with the site.
Patience my friends. Take the site for what it is and go on with life during the few short glitches. If it bugs you so much offer to help him in some productive way such as offering technological services or donating money.

DONATE MONEY!!! Are you nuts!!! Marcus is making millions with the site!!! Last I checked, he was pulling in over 100,000 grand per day!!! I hardly think he needs any donations.
Also, Marcus does not run his site by himself. He has 1,000’s and 1,000’s of admins!!! He has also hired many programmers to work on his site. Programmers from Userplane and a few other companies. His website is not run out of his apartment anymore. He has very expensive servers.
I wish people would do research before posting crap like the last comment by ES.
I think most of the the complaints that people have been posting are as you say “crap” and quite frankly, lame and petty. It’s a free site, if you don’t like it go pay for match.com or E-harmony.
If these people were complaining because they lost money from scam artists that they met on the site and Marcus or his “employees” weren’t addressing it by removing false profiles when they find them, or they were having problems such as Plenty of fish only allowing “certain people” to join the site, fine. I could see that.
But these are petty winy complaints. Calling it “bush league”, I have a date and didn’t write down the information.
Inquiring as to weather the site is down, wondering if the website has been modified, those are legitimate inquiries. But when people start throwing the F-bomb around or complain about these little petty things it gets irritating.
So, Jason, I stand by my post. Weather you like it or not. CA girl refered to it as a “one man operation”, but I didn’t see you flaming her.
And yes, I know, you’ll be on here in a minute to dribble all over me. Be my guest. I won’t be around to read it. I’m on my way out to continue a “noramal” life that does not include computer hermit. The last word will be yours, enjoy it, sorry to think that’ll be your enjoyment for the day.
– 500 pound “athletic” women
– “PhD”‘s in hair styling and cosmetology
– “Graduate Degree” ladies that cannot write even ONE readable sentence
– And THE most common:
800 lb women that SPAM guys to say “Any REAL MAN would WANT an 800 pound pile of fat.

Well it must be something bad and expensive. Maybe somebody attacked the site like a virus from a competitor. It is 21:15 edt ity has been down all day. This is serious. Everybody needs to have positive vibes. We need to call Angelina Jolie she just saved the whole world from war.
Percocet addiction must often times be treated in a drug rehab facility. During this time, an individual is likely to experience withdrawals which are very serious, possibly painful and very uncomfortable. Specific Percocet withdrawals include vomiting…
This is the worst site on the entire internet! Everyday it seems the site goes down. Update your crappy server equipment or what ever is failing or take the site off the internet. If I was an advertiser i wouldnt pay you anything to advertise there! Pure Trash!
