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.

If you’re going to link to “quite a story”, please provide a link where I don’t have to waste a lot of time creating another damn dot-com’s user profile and such.
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.
No Subject Given
Personally I like when people link to stories at the NY Times. That saves me a lot of time having to spend on their site looking for the good stories, wading through all the bad. The registration is just an inconvenience, but that’s all.
