This is actually a great app, from a functional standpoint. I can’t complain about a single function or feature, but the users are just plain nuts. Never have I encountered such a collection of kooks, nuts and undesirable people. There is a news feed feature, on which users can comment and it attracts the absolute goofiest people. The rest are chat bots and scammers. I have to delete the app, as it mostly just makes me cringe. Using this app might actually cause one to seek out conversion therapy. Love the app, but no to the users.

Among the Worst Gay “Social” Apps

Seriously ranks among the worst gay “social” apps ... only download this if you want your in-box to be constantly hit with messages from bots advertising other websites and apps ... oh, and the paid advertising messages too.

Tragic and horrible and a waste of time - the developers clearly have no filters in place to detect fake / spam accounts and asking users to police accounts for them is a joke ... after flagging 25 profiles and deleting / blocking spam messages, now I’m barraged with messages from the “moderator” thanking me for reporting and that they’ve identified the problem and fixing it.

Too late! This morning’s latest onslaught of spam messages - deleting my profile and uninstalling! Wish I could give less than 1 star - DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH HORNET ... guess I’ll stick with the original, old school Grind’r

Developer Response ,

We are sorry about the spam messages on Hornet. Fixing the problem is our top priority and we are working around the clock to fix it.

Spam bots galore

Lately the only messages I’ve been getting are from people somewhere past 7,000 miles away that want me to “find them” on another site. Or they are in the military in Africa but will be home soon. Or offering to put a decal on my car for $400 a week with a fake cashiers check. Or wanting to exchange sex for money. Anyone I’ve messaged does not respond, and the ones that have need money or a place to stay. This used to be a decent app. Now not so much. I’m about to delete this app because of the spam. Just like 99% is spam. And it seems to be more that I report it. Oh that’s it the developer is being paid to allow the spamming and the reported profiles are tagged with who reported it and they get the most spam. I get it now! Shady shady af
