A LETTER TO JDATE: SUBMITTED BY A READER
One of my readers copied me on this letter she sent to JDate. Her issue with them is that she feels their claim to have a certain number of members is misleading, since any number of those "members" are actually "profiles" and not paying members who could view your emails, were you to contact them... Dear JDate: It now costs money to send email and/or to view email. This enables you to say that you have x number of people who belong, that there are x number of people online right now and that you are the world's largest Jewish dating site when it is unclear how many of these people can't be accessed. I believe this is tantamount to fraud. So I'd like to be taken off your site. I couldn't find a way to do this on line. Sincerely, J. Agree? Disagree? Discuss.
