Although the Plenty Of Fish site and its "matching" criteria continue to match couples with age differences greater than the 14 year guideline, attempts to contact these "matches" resulted in an inbox message from Markus stating, among other things, "[t]here is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old woman." The image sending restriction was apparently reversed after Plenty Of Fish was acquired by Match Group (but not "quick messages" directly from the match's profile page) and members outside of the 14 year age limit no longer appear as matches or in searches.
Attempting to contact members outside of the 14 year limit now displays a pages stating the user does not meet the member's contact criteria (even when untrue) and suggests several matches to contact instead of sending a message to the user's inbox.
