I salute this man. Let me get this straight: if he wins, he gets a threesome. If he loses, he has to wear a "I'm an idiot" T-shirt for one week? That's it? With the potential payoff, this contract passes the cost/benefit analysis. Good luck Jim. That's my name too, so you're representing Jims everywhere!

doing a control-f5 refresh on that page, he's averaging 50 hits per second,
and thats a grave estimate! but if thats true, he'll reach 2,000,000 unique
hits in under 12 hours.

you can see this counter direct (for easy refreshing) at:

http://c4.amazingcounters.com/counter.p ... &c=2955412

at any rate, his bet was guaranteed. i mean april 1st 2007? LOL right.

my idea is, they both wanted a 3some anyways, so they just wanted to
get attention in doing so.. or metrodate.com gets a lot of business from it.

All he has to do is convince a moderator on Slashdot to post his story + URL and he will win the bet. :p

Hitting refresh doesn't appear to increase the count.

How is he a weasel? He doesn't appear to be conning anyone or cheating with his page hit counter. His girlfriend agreed to this. Simply because you disagree with his sexual preferences doesn't make him a weasel, you know. Personally I wouldn't do a three way with my girlfriend because it is a recipe for a relationship disaster, even if all parties agreed to it....but if that's what he wants to do, then fine by me.

No ***t. Actually, there is another site out there... I think it was onebillionhits.com or something like that doing something similar. Good short term exposure I'm sure.

Oh and *swoon* Kevin quoted and replied to me! However, Kev, what kind of crack are you smoking because I haven't hit the refresh button one time on that site today without the counter jumping up at least a hundred hits. :D

Good to know. I think the real point in this will be once he hits his target and then if he asks for something more.

I consider anyone who would use another person in the manner described a weasel. Especially considering his girlfriend clearly does not believe it within the realm of possibility for him to win their bet.

It's all the worse that he's publicizing this thing in the celebrity culture way that makes some think it all right to publicly speak about behavior that should, at best, remain utterly private.

Possibly, your point does have merit, however:

There is far too little exposure to say for certain that his girlfriend is truly against the consequences.

There is every possibility that because of this they'll find someone more compatible from the web site.

And personally, this is something I woudl have done. But would have backed off if I truly thought it would hurt my spouse.

And I missed the point of this paragraph. Sorry. In response though, who has the right to decide what should remain private and what shouldn't? Personally, I think if it's your experince you have every right to publicize it any way you want, regardless of how it affects other potential particpants of the experince.

No one's forcing you to read his webpage, and last I checked http was a pull technology.

|FN|Steel: Gentlemen behave better than that, no matter their age.

mattsteg: Yes, but of course we all clicked on the link w/o foreknowledge if we wanted to find out what it was about. The OP was a bit sneaky in that way. If I'd known what it was about, I certainly would never have lent my unique IP to the effort.

I'm guessing that the OP isn't the person in question...

And what does that do for your argument? I'm making 2 different points, obviously. I'm critical of the way the OP was lacking in information, and I'm critical of the person whose web page was linked.

And like I said, the guy just has a webpage. One that you must consciously click a link to go to. No one is forcing you to do so. He's not out in the street yelling at you to help him get a threesome. For all you know he's not doing much at all to actively promote the thing - as this thread has demonstrated interested third parties do plenty well in that regard. I don't know how making a webpage translates into "publicizing this thing in the celebrity culture way", and I don't see how placing *any* content somewhere where it must actively be sought out (short of content that is illegal to generate in the first place) is especially wrong.
