Fraudulent gold members...

One of the biggest complaints this site brings are the amount of fraudulent profiles, aka scammers. I report the ones I find that are using photos of famous people.
Typically, they get removed from the site within a day or two. Since the virus, that hasn't been the case and it's understandable.
As we all know, the only thing a standard member can do is look at your profile, hotlist you and favorite you. All these things are passive. Should you not want to be bothered, you have the option to block the member and make them disappear!

Only paid members can send messages and I state in my profile that I don't read them. Other than blog comments, it's a waste of time trying to contact me that way.

From time-to-time when I see a bogus profile using a stolen photo, I'll report them. However, being a gold member appears to have immunity from site elimination.

Today, I noticed new gold member Janet32000 listed as a 60 year old woman from Florida. The photo is stolen from adult model Eva Lovia. Her photos appear on dozens of bogus profiles on several dating and social media sites.

Always check your batteries. Many have a 10 year guarantee but they often fail before the expiration date.

I heard we're back and it's safe to reopen businesses.
That's not for to decide.
Open what you deem necessary, but my choice would be not to work for another month.
I started with a new company in March that was closed to the public.
While I didn't have an income, it was a much needed vacation.

Checking with the people in my circle of family, friends, and coworkers and all have good reports. One friend 40 miles from me lives in a gated community with 8 single family houses. Four got the virus and one of them died.
While zero would have been great, it was a low percentage and would have been greater if we didn't follow a stay home order.

As far as 'being back' today, I was at the local grocery store Publix. It's a big chain with locations all around Florida and many in Southeastern states.

This is the current status of toilet paper, tissues, paper towels and napkins.

As you can see, we're not really 'back'

I haven't checked testing. I heard on local TV another center opened in my county.

I'm thinking of the possiblity of retiring China for a few months out of the year and concerned about an income. Jokingly we talk about opening a shop make Italian pizza.
I've been experimenting with the help of my wife (who does a better job) and usually finished where I abandon a failed attempt.

I got see a live video stream of the launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
SpaceX is putting 60 broadband satellites into orbit as part of their Starlink service to a total of 418 satellites making them the world's largest private satellite operator.

The entire event can be found on YouTube by searching:
