Sugar daddy dating. Where beautiful girls and successful men meet.". Now, I'm not interested the social reality, but rather I'd just like slashdot, for slashdot's sake, to have better taste in ads. I'd be less offended if the quote was a bit more balanced as '/successful men/succuessful boys/".

While I had used the previous versions for occasional interstate family poker, the new ranking system really made playing strangers competitive and therefore addictive over the long term. Of course now, after achieving rank #1 (JGalt) out of 20,000 accounts, I think I need a little more competition. So c'mon GPL zealots, let's shuffle up and deal!
