DEAR USER: We regret to inform you that okcupid.com is no longer an
active domain. It is gone. Blotto. Zip. Zilch. We, Anonymous, know
what you're thinking, "I'll just go on a different online dating
site." Nope! We thought of that too. We crafted an algorithm that
removes every period (.) from the markup language of every dating
site known to humankind. Overnight, your portal to love, loss and
lasciviousness has been annihilated, blasted to nonsensical data
like the trivial dust it always was. You see, we believe that women
deserve living, breathing men (or women). Men who don't represent
themselves with shirtless mirror selfies or in dimly lit bars,
using girls like garnish. We believe men deserve women who hold
your gaze, stare you down, lick your wounds. We believe you should
find each other based on your swagger/gentlemanly gait/harried limp
rather than frantically tapping on mobile devices with the anaemic
fingers of the dispossessed. We are convinced that the true path to
happiness for all is to return to a time when we were each valued
for our diction and demeanor rather than — aaand then I woke up.
