I suspect the blinddate e-mail address is getting routed to my hotmail; Hotmail's been totally messed up all day.

Yes, freakin' Hotmail. Has freakin' died.

Sigh.

This will be resolved soon, I hope...just sit tight for now. I'd rather not move this to a forum because things have a tendency to...drift.

Sorry about all the crazy comments, but I have to clear this up:

THIS IS NOT A DATING SERVICE.

It's called "Blind Date" because you're getting paired with a random cartoonist, but there is no guarantee that you will be paired with a cartoonist of a gender you wish to date. That would involve (somehow) figuring out participants' genders and preferences and tailoring things on the fly to get perfect proportions of gay, lesbian, straight male and straight female participants.

That would be nutty and nigh-impossible!

This is an event that pairs RANDOM CARTOONISTS to create a love-themed comic as part of a Valentine's event. There is no guarantee that you'll be paired with somebody of the gender you would normally choose to date.

So should we wait until this issue with hotmail is resolved?Alternately, you could open a topic in the forum or something...
