    I certainly can understand why someone might not choose to show their face here on RealJock. It is somewhat harder for me to understand (but please feel free to enlighten me) why someone wouldn't verify their profile.....particularly IF they say they are on Realjock to try to meet someone for a date, or sex or whatever.

    Thoughts?

    Well apperantly being verified doesnt count because I been called fake and im verified so I really dont see the point realjock should just take that off because it clearly says to seperate you from fakes to verify your profile.icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I've been online long ehough to determine for myself which profile is fake or not.

    The verification system is the best I've seen, but there are still loopholes.

    You're not a fake. If I thought you were, I'd have called you out long ago, with enough info to prove my point beyond a shadow of a doubt. icon_wink.gif

    Tonylover's right, we remember that gruesome topic quite well. Both he and BELLO got it in the neck over and over and over.

    Photoshop is easy to learn and master. It would take me less then than 5 minutes to edit a pic that shows the "Realjock 1 2 3" sign and make it look real.

    Faking a profile is easy as learning Photoshop (or any other editing program).

    Why bother? Why would I choose the images on my profile to represent me when I could've lifted some Abercrombie shots instead. Oh, that's right: Because at some point, someone would want to meet me and I won't look like those catalog shots.

    Plus, I don't take good self-portraits with a sign saying "Real Jock 123."

    reading the verification profile + take a picture + sending it just to verify my profile (that looks real anyway)
    no wayyyyy Im losing my time for that (even if it takes 5 to 10minuts,its time that I could put somewhere else)
    as simple as that

    Note from the Op:

    Ok Tonylover I do see your point. But what about the guys that don't even bother verifying themselves or verifying their "fake" identity? LOL. I mean, it is true the system is not perfect but I kind of get creeped when someone wants to talk to me a lot more than "Hey how are you doing?" without being verified

    Less than one second.
    That's all it took to verify (in my mind) your profile.
    Too bad not all people are that intuitive. icon_wink.gif

    Honestly, I don't give a damn either way really if someone thinks I'm fake or not. The people on my buddy list, a select few at that, know that I am not. I've been friends with a guy on here for nearly 3 years now.

    The verification process is a little flawed. Aside from Photoshop, apparently you can get verified and then swap the verification picture later. There was some big drama about this in a previous thread. Webcam is probably the better way to verify that someone is legit.

    How much time have you wasted here, even on this thread? A simple "I don't want to" would have been a lot more believable. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Im not saying it is that way, but saying you have no time for that gives the impression you wouldnt have much time to date, though..
