A nice idea though I don’t see the need to categorize the chats as they are. The main problem are the fakes; at best they waste time, but at worst they’ll scam you out of money and potentially your identity. I don’t know if that’s really possible, but I’m sure lots of folks enable location tags on pics and I know one’s email is linked to many apps, including bank apps. Even if that isn’t a problem, Hornet needs to do more. If I, a user, can find where the same photo has been used in three profiles, then surely a tech company can do the same- and I’ve reported quite a few profiles. I have a photo storage app that automatically identifies and collates pictures of people; why does Hornet do that? I’ve been chatted up by no fewer than FIFTEEN fake scammers in one week. Hornet does offer nice advice on instant protestations of love and “too good to be true” issues, and boy do these fakes deliver there. Military, on a mission but coming home soon, maybe a dog or two... strange though, that a guy supposedly born and raised in the states can’t type in English. It’s more than just grammatically poor, it’s absolutely incomprehensible. Hornet needs to find a way to weed these out somehow. I’ll be deleting my account soon, but I’ve started having fun messing with the fakers’ minds a bit. If all I can find are fakes, I don’t need it.

Spammy app

Lot of fake profiles on these “LGBTQ+” social networking apps. I just recently uncovered a profile on this app using my friend’s photos. It was definitely not my friend and he confirmed it. Of course the fake user was making political discourse... I really think these “LGBTQ+” social apps might be an attempt to make identity politics out to be more popular than it truly is. I used to be more progressive minded, as were a number of my friends, but when you see most real LGBTQ+ people in person are nothing like on these “LGBTQ+” social networks (whom the media doesn’t seem to publicize as much as they do the “elites”), you realize there’s something off about the ebb and flow of these internet social networks. But then this is just for cyberloafer people without real jobs that moreso waste their time online. This is where the propaganda for identity politics flows. In my own experience, I think the discrete political movement to try to propagate our LGBTQ+ community are falling apart, which is good. Their little elite failure groups only have the Internet. All the rest of us are live in person and not buying it. If this wasn’t true, then these app developers would fix the spam problem, but obviously they could care less, and We the LGBTQ+ People are aware of all the fake internet posers.

Scammer Site/Don’t Download/Don’t Join This Sote

I’ve been on this site for a few years. But all of sudden in the past two months pretty much everyone who is approaching me are scammers. It starts with photos from attractive 20somethings, and leads to asking you to go Google Hangouts so chat is taken off this site. So far it is always someone from Africa/Togo to be clear, impersonating someone in the US Military. Several times it has led to asking me to send them a phone as theirs isn’t working well, but they seem to be communicating fine from their phone, to claims they are in Afghanistan and have an ulcer from the food on Base and are looking for help funding their off-Base restraint bill. In all cases it was easy to see the unsophisticated deception as the person on the other end isn’t really talking proper English. Their texts are often off grammar, miss basic Americanisms that anyone would easily type. One of these was Bradley Davidson another today was Kokey Wagner....I’ve blocked them but for what I can see this site is 100% fake people and as they aren’t monitoring this may be helping scammers to take advantage of you.
