When reporting SPAM to administrators the message in question/sender should automatically be blocked and the message deleted, as currently its an additional step so there is no real benefit to the user to report which takes approx the same amount of clicks to do as just deleting or blocking the user.
As you already heard, YOUR APP SUCKS and voted biggest rip off of 2022, via SAG/MIG. WHATS UP WITH ALL THE SCAM POP UPS. AND WHY CANT MOST OF YOUR MBRS CANT PAY THEIR PHONE BILLS. WTF IS UP WITH THIS $21 A MONTH YOU IDIOTS ARE CHARGING ME, FOR WHAT, ALL I GET IS A BIG FUCIN FAT NOTHING.
Can I please police Grindr site? I have had enough like many others of the fake profiles and more besides the escorts taking advantage of guys on grindr. Guys who have got mental health problems and are highly vulnerable! They say nothing by the grindr security team is done about it! So I offer my services for free. Please respond to acknowledge this when possible
Every chat I get that has a DOT ANYTHING it is spam. .com. .net. .sex. .whatever. it is all spam. Don't allow any message that has a DOT. It would stop spam period.

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.
This is absolutely true, which is why I’d say, don’t expect them to change any of this.
Clearly their scammy app is making them money.
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.

Anon users often ignore whatever I write in my bio about needing to see a face pic of the person approaching me and spam tap with the press of one button, yet it takes me like 4 or 5 presses to block them (and prevent further spam). This disparity is frustrating! It should be as easy for me to block profiles as it is for them to spam me.

Why application generated non stop fake accounts on younger people around 18-25 years ! Look my screenshots , this asian accounts is not from Bulgaria,but there are was visible 🤦 , use verification , let's stop spam and non stop generated new fake accounts !!!

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.

This doesn’t work if someone is going to steal someone’s identity they are going to at least take multiple pics as well

Gayfuck.com everyday to no end. Someone in your organization has to be getting kick backs. This is a known issue you are unwilling to address. Your in app spam is down right viral.
I like the idea, however, no one should be rewarded for reporting spam..
