Plenty of Fish Down: PlentyofFish.com Log In Problems Today – Popular dating site Plenty of Fish is currently having some technical difficulties and therefore causing millions of people around the world to miss out on the opportunity of landing a date or even meeting a potential spouse. The web site is most-likely under maintenance for an update or change of server so expect the issue to be resolved in less than 24 hours-hopefully .
When you visit the Canadian base site the following message pops up:

Server Error in ‘/’ Application.

Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 – Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

This is not the first time this has happened. Every couple of months PlentyofFish.com goes out of service, sometimes because of heavy traffic and sometimes because of power outage due to severe weather in Canada.

Thus far, Markus Frind the Canadian entrepreneur who owns PlentyofFish.com, has not issued any statements to explain the situation but with 1.1 billion pageviews every month, you can understand why the server falls apart every now and then.
Rumors have always claimed that despite the facts the site makes between $5 to $10 million a year and that there are over 45 million visitors on a monthly basis, the website is manged by only two people-Markus Frind and his wife.
If the speculations are true,instead of waiting for friendly moderators who will work for free during their lunch break, he should maybe hire people to help out with his company-hey this is just an idea.
