Squirt.org actively rewards users for reporting spam by giving them a 5 day pass to premium membership. I report spam there AND here as a matter of course ... better community ... better experience. I want an incentive to report spam on this site.

The daily offenders are NSAsex.net, Gayfuck.org, and Broromeo. I'm constantly reporting them as spam and nothing seems to be happening.
I get the same, in France.
They send the message and then, go offline

I know, right? This is really annoying. This is not a thing for paid users. Only unpaid users get shown an advertisement after reporting spam. Clearly The people behind this app have no interest in controlling spam because they would filter by specific URLs which are commonly used over and over. Instead, they use this as an opportunity to earn even more money when you get spammed. It's very sad.

I shouldn't be presented with adds when I report spam. You want to incentivise reporters - not deter them.

Get them out of here
**** GRINDR ADMIN please take note ****
A) If 2 users report the same profile as spam, the account is automatically suspended (no further messaging).
B) The suspended account holder is notified and can request review after completing CATCHA to ensure they are human.
C) After review, if a user has erroneously/maliciously reported spam their reports are no longer accepted for a set period of time.
D) Feedback is provided to the reporter so they know action has been taken and their effort is appreciated
It makes me think that someone at Grindr is the one sending the spam messages or is getting kickbacks.
Why is Grindr doing absolutely nothing about the huge uptick in spam messages?
Why can't you block the posting of web sites for starters?
I can understand why automatic message vetting to remove spam bots can be a privacy issue.
Then make it easier for people to handle spams. Instead of the 4, 5 clicks you have to do on each spam bots to 1) report the chat and consent, and 2) manually delete the chat, make it so you have to go through fewer screens after you hit the Spam button, and please automatically delete the chat. No one wants to keep those chats on their chat list. Being able to spam report multiple chats would be nice too, because there are A LOT of them.
I like the idea, however, no one should be rewarded for reporting spam..

Two users should have to share message with each other before a link / image etc. can be shared. This will drastically reduce spam.

Fucking administration and coders are lying to us all. One can easily filter for the same fuckin spam websites that shows up over and over again. My guess is they own these websites. Grindr is spaming us thats why they don't stop it.

It’s been over a decade now and yet we are still plagued with taps and messages from spam accounts AT LEAST 10x a day. If you can automatically detect and block certain words and emojis in profiles, why not expand that to recognize spam accounts? Words and phrases such as: Cash, Allowance, Sugar Baby, Debt(s), Bill(s), 500, 1000, 2000, Venmo, CashApp, PayPal, Zelle, etc. are all only used by these predatory scammers and for some reason y’all don’t acknowledge or fix the problem. Make it happen!

Ads they are.
Spam never stops despite reporting and blocking. I know about IP spoofing but really I believe this spam/advertising comes from Grindr servers generated by Grindr. It's a very poor experience for your users. Seems you don't mind frustrating your customers, paying or otherwise.

Please stop spamming from profiles that generate this, block IP addresses and enter verification with ID card, driver's license or selfie !!! Why does the application constantly generate new profiles for people aged 18 to 25, 26 ???

Everytime im being sent spam messages, inreport them but Grindr then hits me with adverts. Thats just not acceptable, and this problem should be solved asap. Grindr should really think about actually sending a courtesy message to those who have reported issues such as serious ones, for example underage kids on Grindr!! If Grindr does not step up its game, it will be finding legal issues in the future.

I been getting a lot of spam and despite reporting it there has not been a change in the amount of spam. It seems ongoing again. It had stopped for a while.
