mdgposter, I am sorry, but I disagree with you.
Netlog is the WORST site out there. It is a joke. It is a breeding ground for all scammers on the net. Of course, not EVERYBODY is a scammer on netlog, you shouldn't take it literally, there is no site on the Internet where everybody is a scammer. After all, we are on netlog, and we are not scammers. But the site is horrible. 5 years ago things could be different. Everything was different on the Internet 5 years ago.
I have male and female profile profile on netlog. Male profile, while it doesn't get any messages from real women is not hit that hard. Mostly Senegal. In order to get female mugus, you mostly gotta contact them first. But my 45 yo female profile is HORRIBLE. If I stay online, I get hit by scammers every minute. NO real men AT ALL.
If you are interested in dating, blogging or social networking, DO NOT register on netlog.
BTW, I merged another topic here, with discussion of netlog.
