Who Knew Online Dating Was Such A Litigious Arena?

from the rabbis,-the-internet,-and-lawsuits-galore dept

If you’re single and Jewish it doesn’t take you very long to hear about the site Jdate. Jdate is owned by a company called Matchnet, which runs a number of online dating sites. For a while, they had a “resident rabbi” who is no longer involved with the company. The story as to why, however, is more than a little bit bizarre. The story involves a rabbi who’s written the book “Kosher Sex”, a disbarred lawyer, a phone sex entrepreneur, and a former convict. Roll them all together, and add in an attempted dot com IPO and you’ve got yourself quite a story.

Re: link to NYT login page

Ok, I’ve explained thie one a number of times. I link to NY Times stories even though they require a registration, because it’s popular enough that almost everyone knows how to get in somehow or another. Either they’ve registered themselves (most people) or they know one of the hundreds of “well known” username/password combos that lots and lots and lots of people use.

I probably post to 4 or 5 NY Times articles per week, and once every three or four months someone suddenly gets it into their head that I’m causing them a problem. If you don’t like it, don’t go to the site, but don’t make me feel bad for finding news that’s interesting.
