Don't you think it is a sham to charge someone 7 to 10 dollars to "allow" them to send a lady an email, and then edit the content to remove return email addresses, etc? What is the minimum these dating services expect to extract from each male client?
first of all we dont edit messages and dont remove the addresses from the paid messages.And this is not just "sending an e-mail". for those 10$ we translate the message, send it to lady and then send back her translated response.those services are for those ladies who cant pay doe translational servcies and dont have access to internet at home, so I dont see any shame here in charging 7-10$. Those ladies who can pay themselves and have computers use free services. Same is about men who donr want to pay. Internet offers a great choice of sites, and I cant understand those who comes to the site with paid services and starts saying that its a shame and things like that.If you dont like it then why you here? ;-)
I assume that this is the forum topic that you mentioned in your reply to mine (Free Contact?!?). Thank you for bringing this page to my attention, but with all due respect, I must agree with "homes"! Don't get me wrong, I think that these sites are very interesting & entertaining, but the reason that "we" (well, "me" anyway) are here, is becuase there just isn't any "totally free" sites! Not that I can find anyway.
Kind regards, B A Eck.
I think that "homes" intended to leave the "e" off of "shame"! ;-)

Nothing is free in this world and you get what you pay for. If you want a free service you wont get the bells and whistles or the safety of a service that is operating to protect their clients from a scam. The people who run the site need to put food on their tables too. I would think you would want an agency that will look out for you. Dating ru is a site that works with many agencys and looks out for you. If you want free get a plane ticket and search Russia your self. There are ways to hold down the expense if your girl speaks and reads english. if not then you have use the communication services the site provides. I would think that looking for a safe site that looks out for you would be more important than free. Also if a site is free I would wonder if they would be in business next week. As for shame and sham.. Apples and oranges..
