    What does that comment have to do with my reply?

    My point is, I don't think mainstream America is ready to watch commercials geared toward gays & lesbians. It will still be a number of years before you see a gay couple kissing in a commercial or major netword TV show.

    but it will happen eventually. Personally, I don't mind waiting. but I won't think "what is the world coming to" when it does happen either.

    Disney will probably have those commercials on during Hannah Montana to maximize its audience to the youngest viewers possible.

    This really is dumb. They settled cuz it was cheaper to. When they calculated the cost of legal fees, and added in the risk of a what a decision against them would equal, they figures a GHarmony.com would cost less. EHarmony is a private business that offers a specific service. This is so dumb. If you want heterosexual company, you don't go to a gay dating site do you? When I want steak, I don't go Legal Seafood.

    I once went to Outback Steakhouse and got seafood. There used to be a saying in all the psycho-babble circles a few years back "You dont go to the hardware store to get milk". Well, I had a friend from Inercourse,Pennsylvania who told me in that town, the DID have milk at the hardware store.

    Whats my point? Whats my point!?!?!

    um.......i really need to get lunch. im hungry......the point is if you go GHarmony expect to get married to a guy who looks just like you!

    What???????
    Not EVERYBODY who goes on Eharmony gets married. And even if they did, maybe they would hop in a car and scamper to Connecticut or Massachusetts.

    How do you know the laws for Eharmony advertisement? Was it on Homophobe.com?

    While I disagree with the merits of the lawsuit. Settling was smart for two reason. 1) the legal costs of fighting the lawsuit and 2) it is a new revenue stream. Eharmony is in business to make money and Gharmoney will likely make them money too.

    I never understood the rational for why restaurants in the south refused to serve blacks there money was just as green.

    I know that. The problem with this kind of site is a gay guy in CA finds another in Texas. You basically encourage people to be gay FAST.

    WHAT??????

    a straight guy from CA ( arent you in CA?)....who accidently finds himself on GHarmony...might see a nice picture of some dude in Texas....and because of that.....WILL BECOME GAY??????????????

    1. Are you being serious?
    2. I advise you to be careful when you are surfing the web if you are afraid it can turn you gay.
