    OK, so I noticied that like pretty much everybody here, or at least everyone whos offered anything of interest is verified. What is your take on the importance of doing this? was it worth your efforts? did u gain anything in it? Im probably gonna do it anyway since it doesnt take much, but any difference?

    Verification is for the attractive people.
    So I would suggest you get verified.

    Is it? I am notably old and UNattractive. I got verified to say I'm real, not a bot or a troll, and merely to better participate on this great site.

    I wouldn't say you are unattractive.
    You are definitely intelligent. Which in my book counts as attractive.

    The unverified regular posters are usually all "I DON'T NEED TO BE VERIFIED AND IT'S STUPID IT DOESN'T PROVE ANYTHING GLAAARGH". I mean whatever, I really don't care. Trolls who get banned and then come back or members with decoy profiles can't verify without being caught.

    The anti-verficationers also throw out that's it's super easy to fake a verification, but it's really not.

    Regarding why I did it, because I can. And it was easy.

    I did it because I felt as though there was an interest by the founders of this site to create community of real people, hence the name, RealJock.

    And so i get it from that perspective...I think on a lot of other sites, there's a sense of invisibility and the lack of accountability of the Internet.

    Here, while I feel that even unverified people are for the most part, real, I invested in doing the "verified" thing to participate in the idea of a place where there's more people willing to be themselves and play less games.

    Does that make sense?

    I mean then people know you aren't a bot
    Plus it makes people more comfortable with knowing that you are a real person.
    I can't ever put my real photos up but I have them on my private profile for those who are in my buddy list or just ask me lol ;p

    Do people realize how easy it is to by-pass the photo limiters on this site.

    No offense to the creators but a few scripts and you could easily get them.

    There is no real excuse for not having a picture of yourself up. Cowardice is about it.

    One used to be verified as well a financial supporter, for a good number of years, then I canceled my account to clean it, as well to give it a rest. Since coming back I have not seen any reasion, and there is none since it's a choice.

    I think you've pretty much answered your own question. It's certainly not hard...no harder than taking any pic of yourself and uploading it.

    There have been lots of suspected fake profiles and recently there was a guy --volker-- in Germany who was caught using pics that belonged to another RJer...so the fakers are real, unfortunately.

    And my feeling is that some of the most insensitive posts I've seen have come from non-verified guys. Not all of them --lots of non-verified guys are amazing-- but enough that I've sensed a pattern.


    One must disagree, because for one, as a financial supporter, and verified member for many years; long before you come along, insensitivity had nothing to do with being verified or not, and still does not; depends on if you hear what you want or not. We can not be held responsible or held back because of other peoples issues.............

    One feels it sad that there are gays and bisexuals here, young and old, who feel we should all vote and think within the same box, and if we don't then we are inciting hate, just because of another's issues, or deserve to be attacked and abuse, while over looking their own sins, and the fact they may of also spent most of their life promoting there was something wrong with homosexuality, and trying to force another to being verified is no diffrent, nor is attacking them for bring trolls, for speaking the truth as they see it.

    there is some-one here who is reached their used by date, and I personally think of him as the dowager queen. Who even used to abuse one when they where verified, and even tryed to repress one with name calling, like troll. So one can testify, at the end of the day, it really makes no bloody diffrence, as well it is a choice we have, and my computer says no.

    I for one have had countless accounts on realjock and each time got verified at some point (many to prove I was real) besides its better to talk to someone and at least be verified then being blocked by verified members when having no pictures or a pic and no verification and they turn out to be jerks or ugly.

    Honey that must be your guilt, or something, because one did not even have you in mind, it may shock you but....hay man....I in fact have nothing but kind thoughts for you.

    But you did confirm one was once verified

    These days verification isn't 100% gold. It can be faked or altered I am sure. I am happy that this site is one of the few that actually HAVE verification. Honestly, I think it should be required

    But, if you are not a hottie, being verified doesn't make a difference icon_razz.gif

    Why the hell not? If you are who you say you are and have nothing to hide, it's easy to prove.

    Easy question: What is there to lose by being verified? ...besides your virginity, I mean...
