No Friends Like Old Friends

Dammit! This is a devilishly clever scam. Register for free and see who else from your high school class is also registered. But to actually contact them you have to pay and get their e-mail address.

Notice how it sets in motion a familiarly adolescent social dynamic. We can all see our old friends’ names but no one gives enough of a shit ($29.50 worth to be exact) about each other to pay the fee and get in direct contact.

Now the game becomes, “whoever contacts the other first is a friendless loser.”

Well pal, this is one game I intend to WIN!
