    So I woke up this morning and was thinking about doing some checking in on my grindr because I was talking to some people last night. When I opened up the app I got an announcement saying I was banned for breaking their profile guidelines. I have literally had the same profile for months now and I also read through the guidelines only to find that I wasn't breaking any of them. So I guess I'm just wondering why this happened? Or if this happens a lot?

    Take it as a chance to become something more than a piece of meat. Grindr is for anti-social morons, move on.

    You should contact them to find out what exactly was violated. I'm not necessarily a grindr fan (actually don't use it) but I'd want to know why I was kicked. Maybe it's just me but that would bother me more than not being on the app.

    This happened to me here in RJ. I was informed at my gmail that my account has been deleted because of lots spamming from my country. Then I wrote them back that I was a verified member. Later they reactivated my account but couldn't retrieve forum posts, stating that this was a unique situation.
    What I am saying is shit thing happens, we can't do much about it.

    Hmm... I wasn't sure Grindr even existed any more. Some friends and I tried to start it up a few weeks ago and nothing would load.

    However... in the past, every time that I tried to set up a Grindr profile, either the innocuous text or the photo was rejected, for no apparent reason. The only way I got one up was to delete it, then try again with the same text and picture.

    I'm pretty sure that Grindr and many other such aps and sites rely on micro-tasking people in third-world countries (e.g. "mechanical turk") to screen photos and profiles. Your pic flashes up on the screen of some chinese grandma who has two seconds to give it a "yes" or a "no" in return for maybe a tenth of a cent. Try again and it might go to a boy in India. Or a homeless person on a library computer in LA. All quite random.

    When you are an asshole to others and they report you you will get banned if enough people complain about you.

    Maybe it's the universe steering you in a different direction? I always assume stuff like that when weird things happen.

    This, take it as a blessing. I don't do grindr, just on there to browse when I'm bored.
