    Its about time they get sued, I'm sick of getting emails saying "hey I met you on classmates.com blah blah blah..." I don't know if they're sent from classmates.com or someone trying get affiliate commission by me signing up, either way I'm glad they're getting sued :)

    I'm sure there are a lot more people who paid for nothing, so why make an issue now? Poor them, myspace and facebook and friends made life harder for them.

    It's like they pay to get added to the database, which is funny thing.

    I wonder what the defense would be like...
    "We here at classmates.com believe that you did indeed get what you paid for, miss cleo our psychic assured us that your crush does in fact want to link up with you, it would have been a matter of time before your crush paid and joined our site any bloody way, why do you have to be an asshole and go sue us for $15 you cheap ass"

    It is important to draw the line between fraudulent advertising and stupid customers.

    In the case of this suit, I would say it leans to the latter more than the former.

    Them getting sued only means that internet laws are getting harsher. Which... if you don't get the correlation, is bad for we the hat-blackers.

    I have been getting those messages lately claiming that someone was trying to contact me or someone had signed my guest book and was thinking of paying the $15 to check it out. But first I did a little research and found so many complaints about their billing practices that I decided I don't want those guys to have my credit card info. It also sounded like there were just a lot of stupid people that don't pay attention to their credit card statements.
