PlentyOfFish, POF agreed to pay the fine after Canadian CRTC alleged emails sent to members

POF agreed to pay the fine after the CRTC alleged emails sent to members of the dating service did not feature a proper unsubscribe button.

Ottawa’s spam-reporting centre had received a total of 255,000 complaints when the CRTC announced in March that POF would pay $48,000 over allegations it had violated Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL).

about the article "Online Dating Site PlentyOfFish Fined For Spam By Canada"

PlentyOfFish is past its prime and of course in decadence.

The market share of PlentyOfFish by revenue is less than 5% in the Online Dating Industry.
The Match Group had been doing all wrong, acquiring rotten companies to show illusory success to its investors.
They Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, FriendScout24, OurTime, HowAboutWe and many more. Even Tinder will not monetize as expected.
The Match Group is not going to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry in the next years.
Perhaps Diller can die soon due to lung cancer and the IAC can collapse because he is like a Godfather.


  1. "PlentyOfFish is past its prime and of course in decadence."

    Yeah. That's why Match is paying $575,000,000USD for it.

    1. Correct.

      One hundred million users, growing as fast as ever, more profitable than ever. Numbers don't lie.

    2. Alexa, Compete, SimilarWebs show POF is in decadence.
      Do you have internal info to disclose?

  2. You're missing the point (or are too stubborn to admit it). The market says POF is worth that price, as that is what it has been sold as. Companies like IAC don't make dumb financial decisions. So, POF isn't "past its prime and of course in decadence" as you put it, is it?

    1. Yes, it is in decadence.
