Mary.com Complaint - Unprofessional & racist site

Review by disappointeduser on 2007-09-24
After complaining to mary.com regarding my personal profile info being shared, I received the following response! The first part is understandable but the last comment is racist and completely unacceptable. Please beware before joining!!

ACTUAL RESPONSE FROM MARY.COM
The terms and conditions upon which you joined mary.com are very clear. We can publish the information you provide. However, this is NOT the point.

1. Your data has been removed from our site. We cannot prevent search engines from publishing old dats. If you have a complaint please call Google. Just to let you know however, they keep everything for a long time.

2. The data that you put on our site is public data...this is a free site for the most part.

3. How is what Google published on the net intrusive? Are you not single, from XXX XX and do you not enjoy to spend time with friends and travel?

I cannot do anything more than remove your profile! We are not in Iran... this is a free country where we can publish what we want provided that it is truthful and what we did publish when your profile was active... you wrote.

Thank you

Unprofessional, yes. Racist, no. Based on what you put, I don't see anything that is disparaging of a race of people.

As for the google part, that is correct, they do not have control over that.

I really don't understand what is racist about what they said either.

I could be wrong,but dont these dating sites display your info for others to see?
Posted by Starlord on 2007-09-24:
You provided the info, so how are they at fault for anything? I did not see one racist word in the entire communique. You lose.

nothing racist about that line.
DON'T PUT ANYTHING ON LINE THAT YOU WOULDN'T WANT THE WORLD TO SEE!!(emphasis only)

What exactly was your purpose for creating a profile on a dating site if you didn't want it shared?
Posted by Skye on 2007-09-24:
I just re-read this complain, and see that the op is complaining about the Iran comment from them. What is so racist about that??

Should say: "re-read this complaint". Missed my edit time.
