Should Online Dating Sites Do Background Checks?
By KI MAE HEUSSNER
July 1, 2010
Everyone may deserve a chance at love, but do potential paramours have the right to know if the people they meet on Internet dating sites have a criminal past?
Earlier this month, a San Antonio man, who is also a convicted murderer, was searching for singles on the online dating site Match.com until a local paper revealed his past.
According to the San Antonio Express-News, because the Dallas-based website doesn't conduct background checks on members, Abraham Fortune's history remained under the radar until the paper picked up the news after reporting an unrelated story on Fortune. .
Once alerted to Fortune's record, Match.com removed his profile from the site. But the incident has prompted some in the blogosphere and beyond to wonder: should background checks be mandatory for members of online dating sites?
Match.com declined to comment specifically on the Fortune case. But Match.com General Manager Mandy Ginsberg said that though the company takes its members' security very seriously, it chooses not to conduct background checks because of inaccuracies and incomplete information in the felony and sex offender databases.
Should Online Dating Sites Do Background Checks?
Most Internet Dating Sites Do Not Check Members for Criminal History
"If we provide background checks, can they be accurate? And if they're not, do we give a false sense of security to people on the site?" she said. "That's the big concern I have. If someone slips through the cracks… does that create more of a risk for people to not be more prudent?"She said that regardless of where singles meet -- be it in a bar, at a nightclub or at the grocery store -- they should be cautious as they get to know strangers.On Match.com, which welcomes more than 20,000 singles a day in the U.S., she said people should behave no differently."People should exercise caution," she said. "You always have to be smart."But other people familiar with the world of Internet dating argue that, especially on sites that charge for the service, background checks should be part of the package."They're making a lot of money, they're charging a lot of money. I think doing a background check… should be integrated in almost every major dating site," said Stephany Alexander, founder of the free date screening site WomanSavers.com and author of the book "Sex, Lies and the Internet."
While it's true that singles can encounter sex offenders and convicted felons anywhere and not know it, Alexander said the difference in an online environment is that people can conceal their histories behind a computer screen.With glamour shots and embellished personal descriptions, "it's easier to hide behind a fake profile," she said.[B]Dating Expert: It's Easy to Hide Behind a Profile
Julie Spira, cyber-dating expert and author of "The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online," said that it would be helpful for sites to at least give users the option to do a background check on other members.Just as some sites let users pay for extra online services, she suggested that sites let users run background checks on those they encounter online, on a person-by-person basis."I believe that the site would be doing a better service for their members if they offered the opportunity for someone to do a background search," she said.But while most online dating sites leave it up to individual members to suss out the suspicious strangers they meet on the Internet, executives behind one dating website say it's their business to keep their members as safe as possible.Point well made,Thanks!

Loyalovers comments are having difficulty getting responses, or not getting them at all.

I advise him to check with MD for an answer to that deficiency. I received a message from him concerning my ALERT ALERT msg and it was extremely nice and complimentary.

I am going to try and copy that response and place it in the text here so everyone will know what was said.

Loyalovers blog to me that I cannot respond to:

Thanks man...I too have a few sites to add that I 'belong' to and believe are semi-effective in efforts of this area of interest for the viewers/members...nothing wrong or bad about being assistive or helpful,correct? Thanks for your input but as you could see to your reaction and theirs...most were simply looking to embellish so as to gain more attention to THEIR profiles or add their point of view...notice how few had anything positive say other than a modest or mild reaction to each others proverbial 'nod'.

Once again...Thanks for comment and addition to where I DID NOT HAVE ROOM to complete my essay or blog on this sensitive subject...I am adding a few links now but believe as I'd said...many choose to hide behind the veil of the web to only do harm or gain selfish interests and/or desires or doings...it happened to me and probably will and has to thousands of others in one way or another...to that end...this is MY way of warning them whom innocently tread where angels fear they go without guidance.
Yes,keep up the good work/efforts amigo...it's all worthy. ~Loyal

Thanks Ready1 seems to be working now...I just needed to set it to "open" so that I can either choose to delete or allow FROM IN BOX...it's too bad things went the way they did because I really-DO welcome criticism and input but I am a returning member/poster and the troubles I had in the past what with invalid links,spam filling my inbox or posts to the frustration point of cancelling my profile after meeting a nice lady whom ended up becoming a control and somewhat abusive 'freak' or person has taught me volumes about being CAUTIOUS on the web and GOING ever so slowly before commiting or meeting
with someone in particular...THIS is why I posted that helpfile/blog...I'm not constant blogger nor do I wish to cause a ripple or ill effect with net-daters and or the web-community! I enjoy chatting and writing,yes! BUT;I am always trying to assist others from being hurt or misinformed or misdirected or messed with by others or even automated GARBAGE programs like the SPAMBOTS placed in member profiles created specifically for or on these dating sites...want an idea of what a spambot can do or is and how destructive they/it is to the web? Check out the old internet game which has been "Free for uploading/play" from Blizzard entertainment which the hackers and childish individuals whom have intentfully destroyed and ruined gameplay on/in/at...or view this;
A spambot is a program designed to collect, or harvest, e-mail addresses from the Internet in order to build mailing lists for sending unsolicited e-mail, also known as spam. A spambot can gather e-mail addresses from Web sites, newsgroups, special-interest group (SIG) postings, and chat-room conversations. Because e-mail addresses have a distinctive format, spambots are easy to write.
A number of legislators in the U.S. are reported to be devising laws that...
[Learn More therein by looking up;
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 & Spam and virus protection @ Microsoft's website.]

..would outlaw the spambot. A number of programs and approaches have been devised to foil spambots. One such technique is known as munging, in which an e-mail address is deliberately modified so that a human reader can decode it but a spambot cannot. This has led to the evolution of sophisticated spambots that can recover e-mail addresses from character strings that appear to be munged.

The term spambot is sometimes used in reference to a program designed to prevent spam from reaching the subscribers of an Internet service provider (ISP). Such programs are more often called e-mail blockers or filters. Occasionally, such a blocker may inadvertently prevent a legitimate e-mail message from reaching a subscriber. This can be prevented by allowing each subscriber to generate a whitelist, or a list of specific e-mail addresses the blocker should let pass.
Spambot Reference...

"Dogpile" basically says it's a stinky mess and few 'poopie bags' to clean it!

So anyhow...yeah...feel free to add something positive...I am no hard nose and not foul minded...I try to be a good guy/person...U-B-2!
