Spam that won't quit. Opt-out requests are forwarded to a spam trap (http://www.safeoptout.info ).
They either sell email addresses of their users or they got hacked since I signed up. I used a unique email address that has not been seen by any other company or person (except my web browser and email provider). Soon after signing up I was finding spam that violate the CAN-SPAM Act (no unsubscribe option) with explicit pictures. The spam did not indicate that it was affiliated with eharmony.
Basically, whatever email address you use is going to end up with porn spam.
BTW ironically they couldn't match me with anyone.

This is like every other dating site on Earth. Basically, there are hundreds of fake profiles with attractive people, who look like women, but are men from Nigeria. Nigeria contains many criminals on online dating sites. The about me profiles on E-Harmony are about the same, and it takes 2 weeks, like expohallow said, to get a good haul and ban them

Third party spammer that does not use double opt in permissions. Domain listed on several blacklists, including Spacequad AntiSpam Services. http://www.spacequad.com
This site spams because its income has taken a nosedive, not because its service is soooo great! Do not give them your email address (Chances are they already have it on the spammer's list they got from a spam haus). You'll never get rid of the spams coming your way after confirmation. How else are they going to support themselves ? They sell lists of email addys to spam haus.
You (MUST) Be Careful On Dating Web Sites! There Is So Many (FAKE) Profiles Where Someone Is Posting As A Woman; When In Reality It Is A MAN From Nigeria; Who Will Try And Get You To Send Them Money. I Have Had People Try This On Me, But I Am Completely Aware Of The "Nigerian-Scams". REMEMBER: ((Western Union Won't Refund Your Money If You Send It To Someone Out Of Your Home-Country; If At All!)) EHarmony Isn't As Full Of These Scamming-Profiles As Places Like Yahoo Personals Though. You Can Normally Spot These Profiles Because The Photos Look Like Model Photo-Shoots. The So-Called Woman Will Also Have Way Too Broad Of Match-Ideas (IE: They Don't Care What Their Partner Looks, Acts, Dresses, Ect Like). They Will Also Go Overboard With The "God-Speak" (IE: Their Profile Is Just Way Too Much About Their Faith And Not About Them Personally). Scam-Artists Use "God-Speak" In The Hopes That Other People Will Think They Are God-Fearing, And Not Going To Steal From Them. As A Rule: If The Person After 2 E-Mails Is Already Saying How They Love You So Much And That God Brought You Two Together; It Is Most Likely A Scammer! You Can Also Spot These Profiles Because Of The (WORDS ) They Use And How They Use Them. American's Will Use English Very Differently Then A Foreigner. The Most Easy Way To Spot These Scammers, Is If They Email You That They Live In The USA, But That They Are In Nigeria, Or Some Other Foreign-Location For School Or Work. So If They Say "Yes, I Live In America But I'm In Africa Going To School"; THEN IT IS A SCAM! ALWAYS Report These Scammers To The Site-Owners!!
The Biggest Problem With EHarmony, Is That They Are Overly Expensive! They Will Try And Trick You Into Thinking That The Full-Service Site Access Is Only $19.99 Per-Month; When In Fact It Is Almost $60 Per-Month. It Is (ONLY) $19.99 Per-Month If You Pay For The $200+ Access Plan. Since You Have To Spend At Least A Good Hour Setting Up Your Profile; You Really Need To Understand This So You Don't Waste your Time. EHarmony Does Offer A Pretty Good Matching-Service, (BUT) They Don't Let You Express As Many Of Your Written-Thoughts As Other Dating Web Sites Do. So EHarmony May Match You Up With Someone That (STATISTICALLY) Is A (MATCH); When In Reality You Both Have Very (DIFFERENT) Views On Some Important Things That EHarmony Didn't Test, And Didn't Let You Express On Your Profile. EHarmony Isn't A Bad Personals Site Though. I Personally Don't Think They Are Worth The Cost. $60 Per-Month Is (A LOT) Of Money!
They auto-renw even if you turn it off!! There is also no way to speak to anyone or request a credit or refund.
Just try and find a phone number - you can't!
All you can do is contact them through their email portal which just replies with an auoresponder based on keywords.
Owner, and/or possibly the total site previously excluded gay/lesbian/bi from the website with the excuse that official statement to the effect of: "They only knew how to match straight men and women only," When that simply is no excuse, and may reveal the Owner/sites employees true intention: That they possibly still believe(?), and definitely previously believed that the gay/lesbian/bi community are not at all interested in an exclusive relationship, or marriage at all in their future, or even possible that they don't deserve a shot at true love! (This is possibly implied, I don't know their actual personal stance on gay/lesbians/bisexuals. )
When this is a stereotype! gay/lesbian/bi people have similar priorities as straight men and women when it comes to long-term relationships (There are straight men and women, who also look for flings, it isn't just every other sexuality preference), and a lot of the community is looking for the same thing: A good match that they could get possibly get along with and have a lot in common with, possibly for life.
I have not used the site on mere principle, due to previous treatment, and that the fact the site is not free, and there are much better alternatives.
The gay/lesbian/bisexual community and their supporters in the straight community have publically in the media portrayed and nicknamed E-Harmony: "E-Bigotry" on several comedy acts and sketches. This is generally how we feel the site should be named in actuality, I'm not sure if the g/l/b/t community actually came up with the term first, but the parody sketches are very true to life (are social commentary based on their poor reputation, and are hilarious if you've ever seen them!), and do a great service to those wronged by E-Harmony in general.
