More Food Hooking?

Wow.  According to BusinessInsider, the debate over “food hooking” rages on, only now it’s not a debate over the ethics of using Match.com solely to score free dinners—now its debate over who first came up with the idea. I stumbled upon the following article this morning, in which the “original Match.com gold digger” claims that…
