mp_en_viaje: diana_coman, there doesn't seem to be much value there tbh. the main item with these is "do i have any reason to suspect there may be live humans invovled anywhere". which is why fetlife and not okcupid, forinstance, to take that example.
mircea_popescu: but it seems to me talking to the pantsuit youth ~in groups~ is a complete waste of time. from one end to the other, fetlife yielded via private messaging ; okcupid did not yield through public and visible group dominance, i dunno the whys and wherefores but they evidently ignore all group anything.
mp_en_viaje: . QUADRINGA, you see, not ~everyone~, but this one ~particular~ femstate agent specifically, represented itself. it's not EXACTLY IDENTICAL to the case of usg.okcupid or usg.fetlife or usg.airbnb or usg.[http://trilema.com/2013/the-poster-child-for-
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo do you by any chance recall the princeton "trained psychologist" on okcupid who couldn't spell but was nevertheless doing diagnosing over the phone ?
mircea_popescu: "i'm gay" "why ?" "because okcupid sucks and if i ask someone out at work they'll arrest me"
mircea_popescu: consider this comes from someone who's systematically owned okcupid&every other "dating" "platform", askfm, reddit etc -- every other "social media" platform, who was doing put-flyers-on-posts ~a decade ago~ and just as systematically and so on.
BingoBoingo: So far, the other people advertising on local BTC last I checked were skittish. Will try to make some more trade dates, but the OKcupid thing pre-mike_c seemed like an easier way to meet people
mircea_popescu: we're not even considering the point of, "could okcupid/facebook/mit/etc scum rewrite trilema". we are considering whether "the collective of x" COULD EVEN BENEFIT from reading it.
BigTexasBingo: The things what Okcupid should have been. For some reason no users in USA and many in LATAM
ben_vulpes: in other convergences, one of the 'keybase' faces nominally also 'built' the 'okcupid' thing mike_c now runs
BingoBoingo: In other death throes: "In its latest attempt to rejoin the rest of us in the Tinder era, dating site OkCupid is getting rid of usernames. That’s not shocking at a time when online anonymity isn’t just an occasional annoyance but a legitimate threat to democracy, but it is curious in one way: In its blog post announcing the change, OkCupid seemed to go out of its way to mock its own users."
mircea_popescu: you got a blog, you saw teh fetlife/okcupid/whatever write-ups, knock yourself out in a mead of fermented detail.
ben_vulpes: rolling out radical piles of features at okcupid
mircea_popescu: it's what they do 10-20 years before beaching over on okcupid, as best as my xenomorph psychology studies dept can explain
BingoBoingo: In other news it turns out "language exchange" websites of miniscule size feature better user engagement and higher user activity than Okcupid or the other IAC swaps

Last week Uruguay had 4 girls, now has 2. Extrapolating from Uruguay's 4 million population this means ~35000 girls is all okc has left. Been in decline for a while, but now fallen sharply.
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-19#1740667 <<< afaik it never was anyhthing besides "rural western us middle aged women with delusions of self-importance". 45yo oregon dwelling ex-waitress with an interest in spirituality / 38 yo illiterate "princeton graduate" with 1mn in debt and ~0 yearly income 80% of okcupid demo. ☝︎

mircea_popescu: aaand in other holy shits : https://www.okcupid.com/about
BingoBoingo: Looks like it's time to chat up OkCupid and camhos
mircea_popescu: no argument. but it helps if you reject the woman because you saw her naked, or you fucked her, or SOMETHING ; as opposed to barfing because okcupid scored her as 73.
a111: Logged on 2015-11-08 23:08 mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes match.com, plenty of fish, okcupid tinder and the rest of the lesser known implementations of the social media dating scam are all owned by iac.

mircea_popescu: jwzs and other just wanted tos, sam yagan (the edonkey guy who then make okcupid and who then engaged in that ridoinculous publicity stunt over eich's donating 1k to some dudes campaigning against gay marriage in california) is as fine an example as it gets.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Of course. Okcupid used to be a waste of time then, OMG run mp scripts and then datez.
BingoBoingo: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-18#1570198 << Just use mircea_popescu's okcupid scripts. ☝︎
BingoBoingo: <thestringpuller> people still use okcupid now that tindr exists? << mp doesn't have a guide to beating tindr

mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-02#1562239 << people love the hope! hence okcupid. ☝︎
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo ok, but the devil is in the details! my fetlife/okcupid/collarspace/etc lulz don't read like "six years ago, disgusted witgh the process" and so on and so forth.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: He blogs that too routinely, but you had your own okcupid kick too
mircea_popescu: but anyway, looking forward to more "{Security researchers|IT specialists|Computer experts} with {University of Derp in Derpistan|USG.RedHat.Whatever|The HTTPS Internet} published {Literotica|Fetlife|OkCupid|Ask.fm|Phuctor|whatever} {database|userlist|secret excel codebase} publicly!

shinohai: http://hothardware.com/news/researchers-leak-personal-info-70000-okcupid-profiles heh
phf: there was a period when facebook ads were fantastic for event promotion in the same literotica/okcupid way, but without hacking
phf: what you're saying correlates to what i heard, i don't have an opinion because it always seemed like dark magic to me. i've never clicked on ads, and have hard time groking a person who would. but there's also a disconnect of sorts. i understand literotica hack, it is in some ways similar to okcupid hack, it's a cold call, where you have some idea who's the person on the other side, and you just do it in bulk. online ads seem more like fishing, ex
mircea_popescu: i'm about as interested in participating in democracy of any kind or description as you can imagine. #b-a existed to any degree and in any sense for as long as it wasn't that. it can go back to being #okcupid or whatever the fuck else the "power of the people" warrants.
mircea_popescu: but the thing IS fascinating. noticed it on okcupid back in the day, a small but present chunk of derps actually used group photos consisting of HOTTER WOMEN
mircea_popescu: you know why fat women on okcupid aren't getting laid ?
gribble: nubbins` was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 6 weeks, 2 days, 14 hours, 48 minutes, and 35 seconds ago: <nubbins`> <+mircea_popescu> in other news, chick on okcupid : "porque no me escribis en castellano << they say castellano in peru too, but if i'm not mistaken this is not universal in south america?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo https://voat.co/v/fatpeoplehate/comments/808993 << lotta that dumb shit on okcupid too. "oh how strange, she has 20 pics in the same exact angle"

mircea_popescu: in unrelated (really ?) news, two simultaneous (as in, same second) okcupid messages : GEUINEME, 59, Straight, Woman, Single, 160cm from Miami FL says "You are disgusting ugly piece of humanity !!!! Men like you should be castrated thrown in the desert to be lost forever with never a chance of seeing Another human being." whereas ZenRoots, 23, Straight, Man, Single from Lacey, WA says "Dude what your badass. Keep livin
mircea_popescu: o look, script finally terminated. now here's 6gb worth of okcupid profiles including as best as i can discern all females to sift through.
mircea_popescu: that very weird moment when woman you fucked long ago berates your okcupid profile for impersonating you.

mircea_popescu: ascii_shmoocon you know it's a common wonderment on the part of the okcupid sluts, too, "why would one such of you need for okcupid". what need.
mircea_popescu: i'd rather watch okcupid sluts camho. and no, i'm not watching that either.
copypaste: OKCupid i figure
mircea_popescu: incidentally : it seems my account on okcupid was briefly banned this monring, judging by how the script croaked
mircea_popescu: haven't i derped enough about okcupid on trilema ?!
mircea_popescu: incidentally, this seems a deeply ignored point, all sorts of okcupid chicks honestly expect they'll be entertained just because well... they exist. ridoinculous.
mircea_popescu: you know, since im on okcupid about 10 derpy chicks a day go "o, i know why you're not married, you're AFRAID of it!!1"
mircea_popescu: heh derpy okcupid. it has this tab that goes "98 visitors average per week". meanwhile they only keep track of the ~100 most recent visitors. the oldest is from 5:59 am, today. the most recent from 8:57 am, also today. so in about 3 hours i get 100, but "on average" during a week i get 98. it's been pretty much like this for at least two weeks now, give or take 5k a week average each day, which they've been reporting a
Chesterly: in my experience, people on okcupid generally message others within their city, not across countries/continents etc.
Chesterly: yes. this was my research: funkenstein_ in fairness, i just got primed by some random okcupid retard.....fierceEmpath / 25 / Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Chesterly: okcupid is lol for sluts

mircea_popescu: in the daily okcupid lulz installment, http://trilema.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/say-shit.png
mircea_popescu: nicely mirroring the okcupid-no-bash debacle.
mircea_popescu: but in lighter news, http://trilema.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/okcupid-rating-works.png
mircea_popescu: haha, from the social media brigading : apparently if butthurt derps complain, okcupid invisibilises your picture. oh noes, THAT WAS THE ONLY PICTURE I HAD!!11
assbot: MirceaPopescu / 38 / Buenos Aires, Argentina | OkCupid ... ( http://bit.ly/1JnhSP2 )
mircea_popescu: punkman ironically, i was introduced to it by random okcupid derp that thinks i'm a psychopath.
thestringpuller: mircea_popescu: how come every woman on okcupid today is bisexual ? << i thought that every girl born after 1990 was bisexual.
mircea_popescu: why did everyone in the 70s wear those idiotic bellbottoms ? what the fuck is with 80s hair ? how come every woman on okcupid today is bisexual ?
BingoBoingo: How does okcupid famous compare to fetlife famous?
mircea_popescu: apparently i'm okcupid-famous now.
mircea_popescu: cool, i can take all these okcupid sluts to dinner now.
mircea_popescu: o look, BingoBoingo and shinohai found some chicks too tall to be on okcupid!
mircea_popescu: the intersection between "suprmodel" and "okcupid" turns out to be nil.
mircea_popescu: here's a fun tidbit i forgot to mention in the dedicated article : out of ~278k female profiles (which really seem to be the total of the meat of okcupid, ie, women under 30) there is exactly NO actual female 180 cm or over. a buncha trannies but those obviously are not female.
gribble: nubbins` was last seen in #bitcoin-assets 1 week, 6 days, 4 hours, 57 minutes, and 21 seconds ago: <nubbins`> <+mircea_popescu> in other news, chick on okcupid : "porque no me escribis en castellano << they say castellano in peru too, but if i'm not mistaken this is not universal in south america?
mircea_popescu: who the hell said gay men are more competent than straight dudes ? my okcupid inbox is FULL of 50yo derps going "nice pictures". EXACTLY what the womenz get, except these are gay. there is no sp^H^H difference!
mircea_popescu is vaguely curious what daily pageview okcupid claims. probably in the same 1-2mn range.
mircea_popescu: duh, i mean okcupid not reddit. my bad.

assbot: Logged on 18-12-2015 16:28:00; mircea_popescu: in unrelated news : the grand total okcupid offering for "women < 30 > 1.70cm within the 15mn buenos aires conurbation active in the past day" is... half a dozen people. clearly okcupid's not doing advertising correctly amirite nubbins ? :D
mircea_popescu: (in other news, okcupid's "ai" matching system is an utter useless pos. my own network creates usable hits with a 50% probability or better, by the 100s/day - and i didn't even KNOW i know chicks on okcupid in the first place. their crapolade made me click no about five hundred times in a row.)

mircea_popescu: http://www.okcupid.com/profile/SharksAreRadical < cute 19yo, "I'll be living in Ottawa from January to May for a job, I know absolutely no one there and would love to have some friends."

nubbins`: <+mircea_popescu> in other news, chick on okcupid : "porque no me escribis en castellano << they say castellano in peru too, but if i'm not mistaken this is not universal in south america?
mircea_popescu: in other news, chick on okcupid : "porque no me escribis en castellano, soy argentina" mp on okcupid : "It's not your fault you're Argentine. It is however your fault you're a dumbass. That's what I wanted to see, if you're just Argentine because your parents were dumb, or whether you are actually dumb yourself. Having established that point, a bon entendeur, salut."
mircea_popescu: ah, as per intel they actually bought okcupid for 50mn, so prolly should shed some zeros.
mircea_popescu: also, seeing how InterActiveCorp ( NASDAQ: IACI ) consists of at least 10% okcupid and claims total assets of 4bn, we can estimate the value of the bezzle! if 4k worth of okcupid is perhaps 10% of the business self-valued at 4bn, then every dollar a us corporation owns is worth ~0.001 cents of actual, honest to god, turkey-buying dollars and 0.999 cents of pure bezzle.
mircea_popescu: on the basis of all the foregoing, i would say the market value of okcupid is definitely under 10 btc and perhaps over 1 btc.
mircea_popescu: as the boost takes about an hour, this caps the okcupid revenue from this line to somewhere around say 20 bux an hour ? which sounds just about right.
mircea_popescu: in unrelated news : okcupid makes money in two ways that i can see. one is to sell you "A list" status, which brings no obvious benefits other than "browse invisibly". they advertise the shit out of it too, "you are browsing visibly". what the fuck sort of deranged ustardian would actually make an account of a site specifically dedicated to finding people and then wanting stealth!
