Match.com to Begin Screening Members Against National Sex Offender RegistryTopics: Political News and commentaries
No real surprise, given the filing of a lawsuit from a woman who claims she was raped by a person she met through the service.
From Stan Schroeder at Mashable:
The woman claims she met a man through Match.com who had six convictions for sexual battery. She says the man followed her and raped her on their second date, and she thinks it could have been avoided if Match.com had the screening process in place. The man pleaded not guilty, claiming the sex was consensual.
Match.com has agreed to implement the screening process, although the site's officials still don't think that screening is the best option to prevent cases such as this one.
"We've been advised that a combination of improved technology and an improved database now enables a sufficient degree of accuracy to move forward with this initiative, despite its continued imperfection," said the site's president, Mandy Ginsberg, in a statement to the Associated Press.
