1. I was sent an email invitation to join ringo.com by an e-mail acquaintance. The site is supposed to enlargen your "circle of friends". I've never heard of this site before.

    Any of you members of Ringo? Do you like it?

    Well, I've never heard of the site and I honestly couldn't see the point of joining. Is it a bulletin board? Do you sign up and the chat with your new "friends"? Is it a group of trolls anxiously awaiting your life story? Is it another interesting way to waste your time on the internet? Who knows...not me.

    The person who sent me the invitation to join her "circle" is obviously a member in order to have a "circle" so if she intended it as an insult it would be an insult that reflected directly back upon her. But then I didn't take it as an insult.

    I asked about the site to see if any of the many users of this BB were familiar with it or were members. I thought they might could give me some insight into what the deal is with this site.

    I suppose I could have asked her directly, but I think that it would be rude to ask someone "why should I?!" when they invite you to something that they are obviously interested in.

    I went and "took the tour" at ringo.com. It looks like another cyber meat-market, one of untold thousands that have popped up.

    It touts itself "As the hot new way to meet new people."

    Well I didn't notice the "take a tour" button. I went to the site after reading your post and yep it looks like you are right. Could've saved myself the bother of even asking about it.

    Froggy - one of the reasons I love coming here - because there are so many of us, I hear about many things on the internet that I wouldn't otherwise. Thanks for sharing the site . Even when I'm not interested for myself, it never ceases to amaze me what's out there!
