Therefore, neither study provided insight into the likelihood of the website finding users lasting love compared to users who did not use the service.“Because the evidence provided by e Harmony did not demonstrate that their matching system offered users a significantly greater chance of finding lasting love than what could be achieved if they didn’t use the service, we concluded that the claim ‘scientifically proven matching system’ was misleading.” Romain Bertrand, the managing director of e Harmony UK, said: “Although we respectfully disagree with the ASA’s findings, we are happy to work with them to assure that our advertising is as clear as possible.” In 2009 the ASA found that an e Harmony television advert stating that 2 per cent of newlyweds in the US said they had met through its service was misleading because it was extrapolated from an online survey but gave the impression it was a definitive figure.It’s time science had a go at love.” It went on: “Imagine being able to stack the odds of finding lasting love entirely in your favour.e Harmony’s scientifically proven matching system decodes the mystery of compatibility and chemistry so you don’t have to.” The ASA said the words suggested scientific studies had demonstrated that the website offered users a significantly greater chance of finding lasting love than if they did not use the service. We saw the signs of imminent decay all around us, fraying, shredding at all that we had built up in the latter decades of the twentieth century. There were stench art legends like Douche or Dali, The Leprechaun, Captain Jack Spackle, The Armpit of America, The Ass Pimples and Aqua Brunette, Tony with the Car Dealership, Night of the Living Bed-Head, Vince Vaughnbag, Queen Bee and the Power Chord, Willy Wanker, The Velvet Helmet, Cuisinart Carl, The Olive Loaf and Yellow Dress Hott, and the brilliantly named Thornton Mellon Stewie Head. HCw DB may be finished, but the mock will never die. And I still plan to see all of you when my genius is finally acknowledged at the HCw DB Art Show at the Guggenheim in 2023. In addition to the legends that are the Prompas, there was The Dude with a Lot of Popped Collars, who made a second, less famous appearance here. And, of course, the condenced ballsackian mildew of Long Island: The ‘Bag Islander. One month with enough scrotal display to keep a hundred pop culture historians unpacking inter-gender dynamics for a millennium and a fortnight. But trust me in saying, the Mockers back then were glorious in their savagery and wit. Upholding a complaint about a billboard ad on London Underground, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said the claim was misleading because e Harmony could not prove its service provided a greater chance of finding lasting love.
It said in its ruling: “Both studies did not reveal anything about the percentage of the overall users of e Harmony who had found lasting love after using the website compared to other sources.
Founded in the US in 2000, e Harmony expanded into the UK in 2008.
It uses a closely guarded compatibility matching algorithm to pair users, and requires them to complete lengthy relationship questionnaires to determine their personality traits, values, interests and other factors The UK advertising regulator has banned the online dating service e Harmony from claiming it has a “scientifically proven matching system”.

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 May you and yours cuddle by the fire and enjoy a hearty cup of Egg Noggin, or whatever it is the Christians are drinking these days. But I am not here to rant about the current angry, white Christo-douchepocalpyse that has taken hold in our country. No, not even the unholy Star Wars alien teat milk that is Crissmas Angel. We tried to warn the world of the dangers the Oompa Prompas represented. By not giving a canary fling, he flings his canary. An inversion of a mystery wrapped in a riddle, surrounded by Enigma, all not changing the delightful life force that is Kelly-Lynn after Pilates class. Saturday, June 10, 2017 Well hello there, ye fellow ‘bag hunters, hott enthusiasts, and lovers of the mock! I am honored, humbled, and filled with the tingliest of shmeg tickle to see that this ole’ web relic of the late aughts and early 10s still gets a little foot traffic in the age of internet Borg control and hive mind Chris Hardwick faux nerd blankness. Certainly not as we enter the political douchepocalypse that has enveloped. Thursday, March 16, 2017 You might presume that a faux tanned Ed Hardy disciple inappropriately cuddle-macking Svetlana is uberdouche precisely because of douche face. Even devoid of doucheface, Charles Von Cankersore retains a high degree of smelly poo. I expunge you with every ounce of my soul, my shmeg, and my spirit. And you are certainly not invited to my next birthday party.
