Stupid meme  
I've talked about this in other peoples' LJs already, but just for the record, whoever is running the "Crush meme" site is a real ass.

I wasn't paying attention when the quiz first came around, but i've gotten the impression that most of the people who took the quiz weren't expecting the results to be made public, at least not with their name still attached.

Taking a look at the FAQ page makes clear what i already suspected, that the guy in charge is a greedy callous bastard. I don't know if he was planing to screw everyone over from the begining (although given the setup necessary for this to work it doesn't seem unlikely) or just realized he had a potemtial goldmine after the fact and decided to take advantage of it.

I especially like the way he mocks people who feel they've been injured by his act, and encourages them to get even by paying him to reveal the data of other people.

What he's doing probably isn't illegal (although it would be interesting to see what happened if someone tried suing him for damages) but it certainly qualifies as immoral in my book.


And on the same tangent, apparenrly no one likes me, although two people used to like me :) I'm vaguely curious about who the two people are (and think of four likely candidates) but i'm certainly not going to pay that jerk to find out.

Obviously my ashke didn't take the quiz, although i certainly can't blame her since i didn't either :)

Even if i had noticed it i'm not sure if i would have taken it. At most i would have filled out her and my exs, given my paranoid streak and fear of people finding out i like them. Obviosuly my paranoid streak would have had the right idea, clearly more people need to develop some paranoia of their own.

Nobody I know is willing to pay $4 to find out who has crushes on them :P

I know of at least one person who has =P

This whole thing would worry me more if I cared who knows what. Fortunately, I don't. But I recognize that many people do. *shrug*

I am, of course, vaguely curious as to who listed me, but not nearly $4-to-a-random-opportunist curious. If I were motivated, I'd just ask people 'til I found out. *shrug again*

... I don't know if he was planing to screw everyone over from the begining...

I was filling it out and then I realized I hadn't seen any guarantee of anonymity, so I stopped. I think that zie was entirely planning to screw everyone over from the beginning. The lack of a promise of anonymity was kind of glaring. Luckily my paranoid skills came through for me this time.

For the record, you were a secret crush of mine. Not so secret any more, I guess! (Although if you didn't already know this...sheesh.)

(You do know I'm a girl, right?)

Smart you :)

*blush* thank you :) Not that i'm in any position to do anything about it at the moment of course =/

I'm curious though about how exactly that happened since you pretty much only know me through LJ?

(Although if you didn't already know this...sheesh.)

Um, no actually, i can be pretty dense about such things *blush*

I was pretty sure that you were a girl though :)

It's My LJ and I'll Crush If I Want To

I can have a crush on someone whom I only know online. So there.

You come across as really sweet and interesting and smart and funny in LJ. What's not to like?
