I had contacted the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada to denounce PlentyOfFish & eVow as fraud.
Here is the copy of the email I had sent to them.--------------------------

Dear Ms. Stoddart:
Dear Ms. Bernier:
I write to inform / alert you about a big Canadian Online Dating site called PlentyOfFish (POF) and its paid version eVow whose CEO/owner/founder Mr. Markus Frind and his wife Ms. Anne Kanciar are conducting a big human experiment as per a post written in their blog "The PlentyOfFish's blog."
There, Mr. Frind tried a rebuttal of the fresh paper "Online Dating: A Critical Analysis From the Perspective of Psychological Science" published by Dr. Eli Finkel et al.
I had contacted Mr. Frind by email and sent him screenshots showing the contradictions/inconsistencies he had written in his post like:
"Similarity and other Psychological constructs are not used in our matching system. This is something a Psychologicist would do if they were responsible for making a matching system."

The Plentyoffish Relationship Chemistry Predictor (POFCP) measures five broad dimensions of personality that are each essential for building a romantic relationship.

Find out how your personality affects your love life. Take these personality tests!
then he had written
"... I created a behavioral matchmaking system that helped match people up. .... but it is a poor system for predicting relationships."
but at http://www.pof.com/
Ultra Match is our newest and most advanced matchmatching system!
POF invented the first Behavioral Matching System, and it's still the best in the online dating industry.
There are also several privacy concerns about security at PlentyOfFish (POF) explained at:
