    Plentyoffish goes green $$$$$$

    Sooner or latter everybody becomes greedy. From last week Plentyoffish has started also charging his members same as other dating sites.
    "Serious Members" is the new option.

    It's always been about money. Markus has lied to media for a very long time about how he runs the site to keep those TV/news mentions coming about his revolutionary free service... so he can maximize his ad revenue. He started out by scraping profiles off other dating sites, and soon advanced into fake press releases with unfounded claims of the site's popularity (not backed up by real traffic numbers) and claims he was earning far more than he actually was with AdSense.

    He doesn't actually run the site alone, it's not 100% free as the site claims, and most things Markus writes are at the least exaggerations. It's a shame people aspire to be like him.
