I'm not using an app right now. It's extremely easy for me to just go to a competing site if you don't want donations or paywalls.

There are very few sites that will publish content out of the goodness of their hearts. If they can't get paid through advertising, then it's apps or paywalls or something but not free.

Don't get me wrong; I use adblock and never see ads. So I guess I'm a hyopcrite. But if online advertising can't unltimately make money somehow we're gonna have a very different web on our hands.

Anyhow, the problem that I have with sans-serif fonts is that they look childish. That's what you see in books for children, when they are learning to read.

Yep, and that's only compounded by the fact that the current logo animation has a child's hand initially drawing the logo in crayon before it morphs into its final form. Did they accidentally roll out a logo designed for some previously non-existent "Google Kids" service?

It's legal because none of the husbands trying to cheat on their wives will ever publicly complain, ever, not even now that it has been exposed, bwa ha ha ha.

If they had an affair through AM, got caught and divorced because of that, not only might they complain but they would be much more likely to.

That said, it comes back round to the fact that there were so few actual women on the site that there likely weren't many actual affairs that were arranged.

Real Programmers think better when playing Adventure or Rogue.
