Validation of profiles
Validate profiles, make people prove they are real. I have someone touch their nose to see if the picture they are using is them or not.
I'm getting escorts with fake profiles sending me their website and phone numbers almost on a daily basis. How is this being allowed? What happened to the "No Solicitation" and "No Impersonation" rules? I've reported at least 30 such profiles, but their number has actually increased!!! Amazing that this is happening on Grindr but not on any other dating app. They make such a fuss about "No Nudity" in pictures, but they cast a blind eye to this. How can we force them to give such spam more attention?
Please reply me to my email address so that i will introduce about me to you with my details and with some of my pictures

It counters bots but does nothing about catfisher who could use their own picture to verify themselves but then upload fake pics.
How is this not at the top of their list? (we all know why)

You would need to validate every month or so, as people might,
for example, have increased their weight since it was validated.
There was a dating site called RealJock. During registration, they put a 6-digit alphanumeric code on the screen. The code was unique for each user. If you wanted the "verified" badge on your profile, you needed to take a photo holding the alphanumeric code on paper. A moderator would look to see if your face photo with the code matched your face photo you previously uploaded.
You have hem touch their nose to see if they’re real? I have them stuck out their tongue and touch my ****. That tells you pretty quick if they’re real or not. 😂

Can you believe that escorts are now tapping and sending you price lists via copy/paste?
I understand that Grindr makes a lot of money from escorts and that's the reason they REFUSE to block via IMEI & Device ID (zero other reason since Scruff and Hornet DO THAT) & email address.
Can't we have a class action, or someone suing Grindr for 1st-hand procurement? This needs to stop NOW...
Yes! I was just catfished & we NEED some form of verification. People are ruthless and will do absolutely anything to get what they want. It’s very sad, though measures like this would help astronomically.
This is very important, people use fake identities and they do not care what they do to their other individual’s reputation
