We’re having a bit of a cleanup.

If you’ve read our Terms of Service, you’ll be aware that profile names that include or allude to eroticism, fetishism, escort services or illegal activities have never been allowed on MeetFighters. From now on, we’ll be imposing this rule more strictly.

Over the next days and weeks, the MF team will be sifting through our profile database. Members whose profile names are deemed to be in breach of Terms of Service §9 will be asked to change their profile name – even if they’ve been using the name in question for some time. A system is also being put in place to prevent new members from registering ‘erotic’ profile names. Our rationale for this is that MeetFighters is – and always has been – about fighting first and foremost, and that by allowing ‘erotic’ profile names we’re taking away from the main focus of this site. Which – we’ll say it again – is fighting.

We thank you for your understanding.

The MF Team.

If I'm right, fighting is a fetish and a sport in different ways like wrestling.

It's a long process but some people lie about their age on here and a "clean-up" in that regard will also be good.

Maybe I just miss the innuendo or don't look in the right places but I can't think of any overtly sexual names I have come across. I suppose it depends how strict you are being, I can understand if you don't want cockgrinder69 but you don't need to worry about hotwrestler45 do you?
Since the erotic is part of wrestling for many members I think transparency is helpful although crudity isn't necessary.

Great! You know what else “takes away from this site’s main focus” of fighting? Fetish sections on every profile, sexual orientations listed on every profile, erotic fan fiction all over the blog section, XXX member photos, etc.

I think the Admins take good care of this site, but I wish they would just treat the users like responsible adults. If you don’t like someone’s profile name, don’t talk to them. If you don’t like someone’s pics, don’t look at them. If someone offends you, block them. It’s quite simple.

I know my profile name is borderline b/c the term “erotic” is so vague and subjective, like I’m all for no explicit references to genitalia but where do you draw the line in the sand? I paid MONEY to change my name months ago and now I’m probably going to be punished for it. In a word: Ridiculous.

I’m just saying: I highly doubt that it’s the heterosexual, strictly competitive fighters out there that are donating $$$ to this site to access XXX pics and keep messages indefinitely. Fetishists have feelings too, y’all.

You don't see cockfighter66, cumInYourFace, shitWrestler, TeenRaper, because we normally catch them in the first hour after they register.
Mandatory name changes are free of charge.

[…]but I wish they would just treat the users like responsible adults.
I would pay money if some of our members would read the big red box: “don’t use fetish name” next to the name field. And then they type in ‘assFucker’ and open a support request and complain about being forced to change they name. We are in the internet, it is just not possible to assume normal behavior from 100% of our members.

But I’m very proud and happy that most of our members are reasonably.

It is just not possible to make all our members happy. For some we are going way to far. For some not far enough.

Don’t worry, the name ‘BoyToy Wonderkid’ is fine, compared to the registration names we receive.

I’m glad to hear that my username is safe, but please understand that when I donate money to a site, I expect a degree of freedom of expression. I’m a grown ass fighter, I don’t need your protection from a raunchy username.

And while I love the community and respect your authority, I most definitely will not be contributing any more of my hard-earned money to this website.

It was about, maybe three weeks, after I joined when I got a few messages complaining about a straight guy joining this site. They complained how I was ruining their safe place, their fetishes and I didn't belong.But the first thing you see when you goto this site is

"MeetFighters.com is a social network and personals site for people who share an interest in anything related to wrestling, fighting or the people who do it."

It's a fight site, for people to meet up for matchs first and foremost. When you sign up there is a list of dos and donts that people think they can just ignore. There is a word for that, rediculous.

The Admins here have done a lot to keep this site and members safe and on point, and have done A LOT to try and make everyone happy.

If you wanted it just for the fetish, that's fine, there are sites for that. But don't come here complaining about something that's not even going to happen then act like only you are the victim.

A safe place? How does what other people do affect you? If you have no interest in talking to or fighting or even looking at them, then just ignore or block them. You don’t need to call in the morality police.

The Admins have every right to run this site as they please, but let’s be real: the people who actually go out of their way to donate money (myself formerly included) only did so for the perks (access to XXX pics, unlimited messages). It upsets me that the site blatantly baits gay men into donating and then wants to act like the majority of users don’t see wrestling as remotely erotic.

Let it be clear: I have absolutely no problem with straight guys being on the site and part of the community. I just resent the idea that you need to be kept “safe” from the rest of us. It’s insulting. And I don’t understand why you’re so defensive. YOU aren’t the one directly under attack here.

By luring in donors with the promise of XXX photos, having fetish sections on profiles, and the “relationship” option under Interests, I’d say Yes, the Admins are aware and exploit the fact that a large portion of their users are men who find fighting erotic.

This is your active member base—not the straight guys who fight one person every 2 years. I’ve wrestled straight guys before in recreational leagues, but I’d never meet them through this site because it already has that vibe of sexualized hookup/meetup site.

I don’t think that’s a bad thing; I just think they are sending mixed signals here. And I highly doubt this site’s most active members suggested this new policy. I’ve spoken to several of them on the phone and they had no idea because it’s buried in the Blogs section. I just found out by accident.
