I can't see how this can be allowed.
Sure people have made their information public, but they have not agreed for it to be used in that context. Surely claiming that someone is looking for love on a dating site when they aren't is a lie and possibly libellous?
Just because peoples info is available online I'm pretty sure that doesn't make it legal to use it in whatever context you want, what if I made a list of "Australias most wanted" and used peoples facebook info to populate it. I would be expecting to be sued until I was penniless.
I truly hope that this site gets hammered with take down requests from every single person whos info they use.edit on 17-1-2011 by davespanners because: (no reason given)edit on 17-1-2011 by davespanners because: (no reason given)

People that want to date prisoners. It almost looks like a joke, but i wouldn't be laughing had I found my name on that site. Anyhow...I digress.
"Wherever we can extract information about you, we will, as long as it's in the public domain.
