It was not a "glitch" perhaps, it was a revenge via Badoo - Bumble war.
If Badoo hacked Match databases and plans to demonstrate Match dirty tricks to entice customers to subscribe.
Who knows?

Just a year ago
Dave Evans said "Match sent me 12 matches and a msg saying my profile was approved.

This profile has been deactivated for years. Bug or desperation?"

Many complaints about Match dot com suggest ... database is full of old & inactive profiles, scammers, fake profiles, etc!
Perhaps Only way to sustain that huge revenue is / WAS creating fake profiles from inside to entice customers to subscribe. ???

Remember last August 2011 when a U.S. Class Action Called Match a 'Scam' / More than 90% of potential dates are "phantoms," suit charged then Match had morphed its marketing campaign.

"There's no Pepsi to Tinder’s Coke"
Badoo is #1. Tinder started as copycat of Badoo, in 2012
In 2014 Badoo backed Bumble.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/03/tinders-parent-company-match-group-is.html

Mandy Ginsberg, recently appointed CEO of Match Group, is puppet of Barry Diller
and
Whitney Wolfe is puppet of Andrey Andreev. Badoo has 79% of Bumble.

Match Group is in war with Chinese MOMO and "Russian Mafia backed" Badoo.
Match Group big debt, in the range of USD 1.2 Billion.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/03/match-group-mtch-responds-to-bumble.html

Barry Diller too old, Match Group and IAC can collapse if he pass away.

Badoo next feature: Virtual & Augmented Reality ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/04/badoo-next-feature-virtual-augmented.html

Perhaps Russian Mafia from Badoo (owner of Bumble), and believed mainly in the spyware business,  will hack servers from Match Group and reveal Match Group really creates / created fake profiles from inside to entice customers to subscribe, and will incinerate Match Group as "Impact Team" incinerated AshleyMadison some time ago.
