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.

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
