For casual readers: very sad that baddog didn't understand why he was really banned. Not because of the good review of DIA. Besides posting a review about the site, he (maybe unwillingly) disclosed his personal methods of using dating sites. That is: writing to many ladies at the same time, then meeting with all of them during the same trip. From women point of view, this is humiliating. This is what ladies call sex-tourism (when it results in a trip) or game players (for local men). Doesn't matter if all women want to meet with a man. Of course they do, why not? They think they met their dream man and have no idea he is talking to many others and plan to meet with them all. That's why WildGeese mentioned "scamming". This is emotional scamming, in a way. Means you are not attached to any of these women, don't really care about any. All success stories we heard were from men who went overseas to meet just one lady of their dream. Those who meet "in bulk" are still out there, single and supposedly looking.
This is why I am saying over and over again: please, don't register on this site and immediately jump to post reviews.
Get to know the community first, get to know what grounds we stand here on certain subjects before posting. Please realize that you are on the site full of women, including Asian woman, many were badly hurt in the past. The reaction to your "boy talk" on this site might not be what you expect. Think before you post something about YOURSELF and your ways. The reply to WildGeese just proves one more time that baddog shows no respect for ladies, that's why he got banned. Not because of his good review of the site.
Now, back to the subject of DIA. I am not biased. I must confess, guys: I somewhat disagree with you. Yes, I know you met all pinay scammers on DIA. But that's natural, this site is full of Filipinas! Where else to search for a pinay scammer to bait if not on an Asian site?
Of course they all register there. At the same time, being a webmaster myself, I can tell you: when Filipinas register, it is impossible to tell who is a scammer and who is not, and boot them off. It is relatively easy to keep the site free of Nigerian and Russian scam. But with Filipinas and pro-daters it is different. Unless you actually chat with them, or meet in person, there is no way for a dating adminstrator to tell who is who: they are all real, with real pictures. And sure they all register on an Asian site! Thank God I don't have that many pinay registrations on my site, but if I did, I would have a hard time keeping my site scam free, really.
Another thing is how the site reacts to reports of men who DID chat with these pinays. Do they take such reports seriously? Do they boot them off right away?What kind of proof they require? Did you try reporting scammers you met there to admins? What did they do? Like I said, sometimes I find a suspicious registration on my site. I do Google search, find them on DIA, but when I try to look at the profile, it often says that they were booted off for scam. This usually applies to Chinese scammers though, like interlingvo ones. Just trying to be objective.
