bah that site is a joke. I signed up on a lark and I immediately found the interface to be cumbersome and poorly designed. There are "keywords" but no way to search people by keywords. Most of the "thousands" using the site just signed up for the whole $5 gimmick and NEVER sign on. I still sign in once in a while for the hell of it but do yourself a favor don't waste your time with this crap.

I joined the site before they started the $5 offer but I stopped using it once I realized you have to buy a premium membership to talk to anyone. Oh, and the $5 thing is misleading. You don't get paid until you earn $20.

Why was this posted as a story?

Sorry, I'm a bit upset over the fact this, of all things, bumped the "porn nation" post off the front page.

The fact that CampusFlirts is allowed to post about their site on here for free leads me to believe that TWW is endorsing them. And that in turn would mean that TWW is endorsing the homophobic and discriminatory values that Campus Flirts embodies.


Am I the only one seeing a problem with this?

Yes, they paid. The editors talked about whether or not we should post it, considering it was an ad and we don't usually post ads on the front page. We had different opinions, but we decided to post the story. We knew some people might be upset, but we are doing all we can to keep the site cost-effective, and CrazyJ is working on some technical improvements and upgrades for the site. Sorry if this story has offended anyone!

Also, posting this story doesn't mean that TWW "endorses" that site in any way. I don't necessarily agree with other stories that have been posted on the front page either, but we think it's good to encourage free speech that might interest students there!

Sorry that Porn Nation got bumped, but at least that story did get some front page time! We have had TONS of stories submitted this week as you can see from the front page, and we can't guarantee each of the stories lots of front page time or that they will even be posted at all. We are just trying to run as many stories as we can, and the current stories will all be replaced with new stories coming up in the next few days anyway, including the CampusFlirts one. Just keep submitting them!

I don't think you want to go into a free speech arguement in regards to TWW. My beef is with the site, not TWW. But I think if that's the reason you're going to use as to why it was posted, you're completely inaccurate.

The issue for me is that this jackass was taking words out of my profile like "w00t" and his reasoning was that if people saw the w00t they would think I was on TWW and try to contact me here instead of on his lame site. So I can't help but find it ironic that this guy would come back to TWW to advertise when he doesn't want there to be any association of TWW and his site.

As long as he paid for his advertisement thats fine, I know TWW needs to make money and I understand that.

OH BTW Niagera22 MY .EDU E-MAIL ADDRESS WON'T FIT INTO YOUR LITTLE WINDOW MAYBE YOU SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. OR ARE YOU DISCRIMINATING AGAINST PEOPLE WITH LONG .EDU EMAIL ADDRESSES TOO?

works for me

Seriously, you are making a big to do over nothing. If TWW owners need to include "advertising" on the mian page to help offset some of the costs of running this site, so be it. Of couse, if a whole lot more would cough up a few more $ and go premium, you might solve the need to them to figure out ways to get a few more bucks to help pay for this thing.

good lord this is stupid

who cares if they don't allow homosexual hook-ups

if they're so sore about it, they can buy http://www.campusgays.com or http://www.fruitsoncampus.com and make their own service

There is nothing discriminatory about our service. It is for heterosexual people looking to date someone on campus. Just because McDonalds isn't in the pizza business doesn't mean they are discriminating. They offer a product: burgers. If you want pizza, go somewhere that has pizza!

^^^ yes, it is, becuase you originally implied to be for all students, not just the heterosexual ones...

as for htis whole "paying to be on the frontpage" thing... wow... tww's management is just sinking to new low after new low in the last few weeks...

tww has a paid advertisement section, is it so wrong to expect for paid advertisements to stay in that area? rather than be given coverage in what is usually considered to be a "news" section?

Michael Mason, you might not be a fag, but you certainly are an asshole. And you always have been. Or does everyone forget the first time we had a round about this?

You all miss the point completely. If you are a hetero site like you so proudly tout, then say that on the front page. Make it loud and clear. And while you're at it with your morals banner, take off all the girls with slutty pictures because that is just tempting the hetero men away from Jesus.

if he wants to be a dumbass and miss out on profits by excluding gays, thats his problem. Its not a very smart business decision but apparently he can sleep at night because of it.

i have seen the homepage, and i think that pic of that guy sticking his tongue out is very distateful and stupid.

Why would anyone lose sleep over not running a dating service for gays? It's not an obligation.

wtf is wrong with an anti-gay website?

being a fag is wrong.

They should keep black people from talking to white people on that site.

I mean, you can't help being black, but you can at least try not talking to us white folks
