Because POF made the bonehead move of requiring people to have an account and be logged in to view profiles (is it possible that the viewing of profiles would entice people to create an account?) , member pages on Plenty Of Fish are no longer indexable by the search engines so this tool for viewing profiles anonymously without having an account and be logged in no longer works. Ever since Match purchased Plenty Of Fish dating, they have taken away some of the best features of this free (for now) dating site.

These days most dating sites require you to create an account and a profile to view members of that dating site. Why? They get your email address and make you a captive audience every time you log in, meaning, once they have your email address they can begin sending you emails to software move you to a paid member, such as member zyx wants to meet you. Click here to become a paid member and see who they are.
This is especially stressful with Plenty Of Fish dating because their sign up procedure is a little bit lengthier than most dating sites when taking that long, pre-sign up personality test into consideration (all the weird questions with the option buttons you have to tick for each question)
