Last week was an interesting one on OKC. As some of you may know, I had a duderino hit me up wanting me to be his slave. He even hypnotized me over the phone, and flash forward 24 hours later when he fully read my profile and apparently checked out this loverly site he decided that he didn’t want me to write about the experience. I then bit back at him and said fuck no, this is how I lead my life … I won’t sacrifice that for anyone. He then sent me a series of threatening text messages, and not out of fear but frankly frustration – I instead posted a video on the experience. You can watch it over yonder:
He then told me he was going to contact OKC and have me suspended.
See, in their TOS (terms of service) they say that you’re not allowed to post shiznat from their site on anything else. This is why I don’t post people’s avatars or anything as well. I for reals don’t need the bad karma, but you’re actually not allowed to in general as part of their TOS. I’ve reached out to OKC HUNNDDREEEDDDSSSSSS of times – so I know they know about the 103 dates in 9 months and the thesis, but technically speaking of course they could suspend my account.
The duderino emailed them sometime last Thursday … and on Friday morning I woke up to this …
See, normally when you go to visit OkCupid.com and you’re already a member, it just automatically logs you in.
I KNEW right away seeing this screen what was coming, but I still entered in my password and was then greeted with this screen …
I then tried logging in through their Android App on my phone, and was greeted with the same message.
I was suspended one other time last December because someone was pissed that I posted an email (hence why now I also have a disclaimer in my profile).
If you go to my OKC profile you will now see this screen …
Um … yeah, I don’t restrict my account – this is just them saying that I’m suspended in their, “we’re not technically saying she’s suspended … but know, she’s suspended” kinda way.
What happened in the past was that they enabled my account after about a week, and everything just moves on. I’ve emailed them twice asking what was up, but that’s what has happened in the past.
Me thinks it’s part of their business plan to penalize the person for violating their TOS while at the same time negating the situation for long enough so that the person that reported them also feels validated. (Hence why they don’t take down your account or email you – rather just say, they’re experiencing “technical difficulties”.) Dude, OKC gets free publicity on this site. It would behoove them to keep that shizzy shiznat up, but whatevs. It happens.
So yeah – if you’ve tried emailing me on OKC in the last week, unfortunately I didn’t receive it. I’m neither here nor there on the entire situation. I’m pretty much over OKC anyway, and have been looking for other dating site options. We shall see however if they return my account.
Kinda lame, not gonna lie – but after a year and a half on the site maybe it’s time I move on anyway.
Either way, if you’ve gotten this screen on OKC know that someone reported you for some violation of TOS and after about a week you should be back up and running. Don’t worry your account info and everything is saved; your profile will go back to normal once they lift the suspension. They don’t email you or anything, you are literally just able to login again.
There ya go nerderinos! I’ve apparently been a bad bad girl …
UPDATE: about an hour after I posted this they reinstated my profile. All is well once again. Note to nerds, to get reinstated don’t send them an email just post a blog on your website! YAY LIFE!!
