Removal of "Why You Should Never Pay For Online Dating" blog entry
After Match.com acquisition, OkCupid removed "Why You Should Never Pay For Online Dating" blog entry that highly criticizes paying for online dating with supportive statistics and graphs.

Removed uncited material
I've removed the following from the article as uncited:
One major common complaint by users of the site is being deleted with no apparent reason. When users tried to sign back into their account a fake message saying "We sorry, we're having technical difficulties, please try later". When in fact their account has been deleted and their IP address blocked. Many users reach out to the company through emails and get no response and no reason why their account has been deleted.
This is actually true. The deletions do appear to be random. (The majority of deletions stem from forum "feuds.") There are literally hundreds of complaints on Reddit and other websites about this. I'd add it back and cite it, but I'm not sure if Reddit constitutes a good source for Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:51, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Ugh yes, zero response from emailing them. Hopefully more light will shed upon this feature. It's a sly ban if you can login. Its a generic misleading message if you cant login in. The sly ban appears to be a normal login. Messages go out but the receiver never gets them. Really frustrating. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:16, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
Criticism regarding flagmods
The criticism section seems to be written by someone who is closely involved with flagmodding, or who is being very specific for any other reason while using weasel words and not providing any references. The section needs to be reviewed, cleaned up, or removed altogether. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 04:50, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
- Removed. That much content needs much better referencing. Blackguard 20:50, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
