I heard it's not, but what is the truth?

I think the problem is more likely a policing one - How can you check a person info and pic is correct?0

Oh dear. How is any site supposed to "make" someone truly be themselves anywhere online? Anyone is free to make a male or female profile, claim to be a certain age, and roll with it, especially on a relationship Q&A site like this. It isn't meant for online dating. And even dating sites aren't responsible for what you find out about someone. You use the site at your risk and be smart about who you chat with, even that's in their terms of service.
Just a word of caution folks, I know for a fact several "women" on here are actually guys. If you already knew that, then great. But if you didn't know that, then just know that there is a possibility that when you chat with a woman here she is not even a woman at all. A lot of trans-curious men thrive on sites like this to be the gender they wish they were because they can't be in real life - at least not openly yet. So they'll pose as women to get an inner itch scratched to feel like one for a while. How do I know this? Because I have met many trans-gendered and very flaming gay men who want to feel girly and say that being online is a good anonymous way to interact in a real way without being known. One has even personally messaged me this fact in confidence here.
I don't care because I'm not online to hook up with guys.
I have had my share of internet scares with men though and learned a long time ago not to share my information with people I don't know. I did that once and a virus was sent to my computer that unleashed some private files in to an email to him. He got a hold of my resume, which was a nightmare. Never again would I have gotten close with someone online like that and even if I did, I would leave emailing out of the equation. My emails are now reserved for family and work. Private files are on a stick.
Look after yourselves, folks, because no one else can do it for you.0
