72-year-old's dating site bans short people, gays

Censorship

destinyland writes "There's 14-million registered users on eHarmony — but none of them are gay. A lawsuit filed today charges eHarmony discriminates against same-sex dateseekers. Earlier complaints said the site's algorithm also rejected men who were too short. Will California's law trump the entrepreneur's protocol? The 72-year-old who founded the site is an evangelical Christian with ties to a conservative political group. One lawsuit even charged that they refused services to a man who was "legally separated" from his wife because they were technically still married."
