Comment zoosk is scum (Score 1) 189

Zoosk sent me an ad where they randomly took two names from my facebook friends list, male and female, and heavily implied they were dating after meeting on Zoosk, with their stylized heart graphic. In fact they had never heard of each other. The man, my next door neighbor, was very angry and i don't blame him.

This reminds me of Domino's Pizza. Exactly when its boss made news for his opposition to abortion, "the word" went out that their pizza was no good. Now anything by Card gets the same treatment. Political correctness shows its muscle again. In the recent comparable case of Chick Fil A the tactic backfired though you still see that name used as a curse/insult.

Without life, Biology itself would be impossible.
