This has to be the worst idea of all time. It is a dating service designed to promote romance among like-minded media types. 'Our members,' they warble, 'are journalists, photographers, designers, camera crew and technicians, as well as public relations, advertising and marketing bods, along with hard-pressed administrative staff.' And 'We'll block dodgy profiles faster than you can say 'Hold the front page'.' Good grief, who, in this business, doesn't have a dodgy profile? And, 'you're definitely at the wrong address if all you're after is a meaningless shag.' Since they expect their lovers to be busy exchanging media gossip, a uniquely anaphrodisiac activity, any shag, meaningless or otherwise, is unlikely.
