    It's not just the fact that it's spam. There are two large principles that are being ignored. The first one is that Grindr deliberately allows spam to be cycled back and forth, with the subtle suggestion that they can make it all go away for a little cash. That's called manipulation and I don't think that it should be allowed to happen. The second principle is the fact that it's not just regular spam but it's disrespectful derogatory bullshit. Common examples are something like the header tagline saying "Hey want to fuck??", Followed by a website address. I hope I'm not alone in saying that WE ARE ALL SICK OF BEING USED AS TOOLS TO MAKE YOU MORE MONEY BY LEVERAGING PROMISCUITY AGAINST US!! And even worse, the owners of this God forsaken website / app are not even gay whatsoever! How does that make everyone feel, somebody say something for Christ sakes! Is this the kind of stuff you want to look back on when you're getting older? Sharing fond memories of how the most popular dating app continuously beats you down with endless trivial attempts to get you to give them more money and when you don't want to, they throw every type of ad at you that they can think of, and then disrespect you the whole way. Here's a good analogy: you're cruising down Hennepin avenue trying to get to your favorite bar, but all along the way every 10 ft a really annoying disrespectful man in one of those long fur trench coats blocks your path and opens his coat and tries to sell you one of his shitty watches that not even HELEN KELLER would buy, at which point you decline and shoulder passed him. Imagine that happening endlessly...By the time you got three blocks into your journey you would be ready to tear somebody's head off and roll that bitch into the street.

    There's a better way, man. Find it.
