Traffic to the site really took off today. I think we were at 1,150 unique visitors at last count, which is great. We’ve also started to receive some more reactions to the site, some that are interesting:
This from undefined boy:
Another racist site here. It’s a dating site that says to only provide for attractive people. They have a list of ‘no nos’ and in that list is red hair. But no black people listed or asian or anything else. just red hair.
I’m not sure when not liking red hair counted as being racist (I’ve never heard of the red hair race, although I stand to be corrected) but obviously undefined boy’s concerns are completely unfounded. As we say in our FAQs, “the only thing we discriminate on is attractiveness/ugliness. Race, religion, sexuality and anything else that has nothing to do with physical attractiveness is completely irrelevant to us.”
Let’s face it, there are hot people all over the world. Whether you are black, white, yellow, pink, green or blue, we don’t care, provided you are hot. (And you don’t have red hair!) 🙂 hehe, kidding. Red hair is cool. Red hair and freckles,… that’s another story!

“There’s one major problem with this concept – hot women don’t need to use online dating services. They get enough attention as it is.” — darkdaedra on another digg post [darkdaedra, feel free to keep all the ugly ladies on ‘regular’ dating sites all to yourself!]
