I am currently on a community college campus which extended me access to the internet. I logged into the 'geek and thought to check any new entries in the current MT. Here's the error message I got!

I knew I had a love affair with math trading, but they've taken it too far!

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

What's worse is that it's a swingers club which creates large group interactions.

It's very rare to see a 1:1 "date" happen.

This begs for a new microbadge:

math trade swinger...

...because it's nice to have a lot of fall back options.
...I'll cover shipping if you do.
...just promise you're being honest with your condition.

activityclub.org is nor ever was a dating service and definite not a swingers club! It's always been a activity based (going out to eat, hiking, biking, walks, etc) social organization. I never once ran a dating event, if members dated that was on their own.

What really gets me is I had designed my web site for the club before meetup.com existed... if only I had someone with marketing and business skills much better than mine. I still feel some features I implemented are still better than meetup has. It's why Bill Gates came out on top, there were a lot of folks smarter than him with computers and software, but he also knew how to do the other side of things.

In any case it's better than my other domain name... singlesclub.org, that I could have used. For folks that have followed the OLWLG discussion thread this problem has come up before with some internet filters... must be those Chinese companies

It is better than some of the geekdo pages getting blocked at my work for being associated with 'Sweedish Porn'. No lie.

Funny enough, this is how I describe Math Trades at work - "Everyone throws their car keys in a big bowl, except you get to choose whose keys you pick out. Except it's games, not cars. And the bowl is virtual."

By that time it seems slightly less geeky, and they've all lost interest...

You have a system that distinguishes between porn nationalities?

I know how you feel but on the other end of the spectrum. I can handle intermediate PHP and understand basic SQL but that's as far as I get on website creation.
