Computer Dating

So, it's true, "eharmony" is based on Christianity. Check out this article by Joel Keller. (you'll have to skip a sort of weird sexist intro about the guy's date, but his other comments are interesting).
From there, procrastinating in full gear, I started reading more issues of "Blacktable" and came up with this story. Since I used to be an anarchist, though sort of reluctant at the time, I totally enjoyed
this representation of anarchist demos.
It's true that anarchists are great at organizing themselves. They(we) are more concerned with process than anyone, and unfortunately, they are really, really concerned, perhaps unbeknownst to Ashley Glacel, about "intra-movement politics"

i tried eharmony. i wasted 45 minutes of my life clicking on multiple-guess questions about my personality only for it to tell me "we're sorry, we could not match you". what a bummer! i was scientifically proven to be unlovable. fucking theists.

Did you read the article about why this happens. Some of it relates to religious beliefs.

What's this "used to be an anarchist" stuff? Traitor!! The ghosts of Goldman and Berkman (or at least the karma of Kieran F.) will get you one day.....
