DOJ: Lying on Match.com needs to be a crime

Quote:
The U.S. Department of Justice is defending computer hacking laws that make it a crime to use a fake name on Facebook or lie about your weight in an online dating profile at a site like Match.com.

In a statement obtained by CNET that's scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, the Justice Department argues that it must be able to prosecute violations of Web sites' often-ignored, always-unintelligible "terms of service" policies.

It seems to me, that anyone that uses services such as those, do not expect all details about a person to be exactly true. Therefore, it would appear that the necessity for accuracy is more for the benefit of the government than for people using the services. It is simply an underhanded means of gathering data on people.

Doesnt the DOJ have more important things to do than worry if someone on a dating site lied about their weight?

Lying about your weight to obtain something is fraud. So therefore you are breaking the law.

According to your definition of fraud, every person on Earth is guilty of fraud, for legal purposes, fraud has specific boundaries. Therefore, since lying is not necessarily fraud. If it were otherwise, it would justify the government sticking their nose anywhere they please, for any purpose, which is the big brother concept written about in Orson Welle's "1984". Is that really what you are purposing?

It's just election year politicking (a little early, but nevertheless).
It will just go away.

Perhaps for obtaining medication from a pharmacist, not for "obtaining" a relationship, as a relationship has no monetary value as goods or a service.

LOL, sounds about right!


It seems like the reporter has put a comedy skew on the angle by referring to match.com (which probably isn't specifically named in the statemet). It's specifically for enforcing website terms of service and should actually deter fraudsters or sexual predators for signing up to many services (dating or not) with false credentials.
