So It’s … An Escort Service?

Online daters sue matchmaking sites

> Match.com, a unit of IAC/Interactive Corp., is accused in a federal lawsuit of goading members into renewing their subscriptions through bogus romantic e-mails sent out by company employees. In some instances, the suit contends, people on the Match payroll even went on sham dates with subscribers as a marketing ploy.

What sort of a whiny society is it we live in where people can sign up for a service expecting nothing more than the occasional bad match based on suspect criteria some computer spat out, get hooked up with a CALL GIRL (or guy), then turn around and SUE!?

In my day, dating services took your money and left you empty-handed. Match.com should be lauded for its exemplary customer service.

Or not.

And I never have used a dating service. That’s just what they were like in my day.
