    i've always appreciated RealJock due to the apparent lack of fake user profiles, but it appears they are starting to multiply faster and faster.

    having so many 'real' guys makes forum reading much more legible; if you're intrigued by what someone says, you can check his profile and get a bit better idea of the guy, get in contact with him and have confidence you know who you're dealing with.

    these days you're just as likely to see a pic taken from a porn site being used as someone's profile pic and various different soft porn pics used throughout their profile. i am aware some guys refuse to display their own pics online, for their own personal reasons, and that i have no problems with. i'd rather talk with a guy with NO profile images than someone who claims to be the latest model from Bel Ami or Corbin Fisher.

    i'd prefer not to 'Name and Shame' in a forum, but it would be nice to somehow flag those users who are obviously not who they say they are. I realise they aren't hurting anyone and at the end of the day, really, who cares? what makes me sad is when you see some of these guys have fooled others into becoming mutual friends, completely duping them into thinking they are who their stolen-profile-pic makes them out to be.

    thoughts?

    This is something that made me doubt a lot about what i see online...
    .
    I fell in love for a guy and i am starting to discover that he may be a fake and that all the videos he sent me and all the webcam sessions were fake too.

    You can go into their profile and click on 'report abuse' and explain why you believe it is fake.

    good point. though as i said, it can be a bit picky if you're doing it because they've added a couple of pics that are obviously not themselves ... i guess it's just disappointing. more than anything i feel sad for the person who has to use someone else's pictures.

    Many of us agree with the OP and have been part of this same type of thread several times in the past...so the topic is not new. The ability to report anyone for anything is already in your hands ...by simply going to the offenders profile page and clicking on "report" and then giving your reasons....this has all been mentioned by previous posters in better detail than I gave....on the other hand...this is "cyberworld" and we should all know by now that some people lie, cheat and steal here, just like they do in real life. ..."let the buyer/user beware..."icon_rolleyes.gificon_wink.gif
