My basic rules / warning / disclaimer wording comes from Craig's List Personals. Craig's List (CL) Personals is one of those sites that should work on the web but generally does not. It's both an inspiration and a challenge to improve upon.

The scam alert that I quote in the goals document also comes from that same CL page.

"Yet another dating site" harkens back to yacc--yet another compiler compiler.

The term "Whuffie" comes from Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. Full reference below.

The Wikipedia appeals that I mention in the funding document have been running for weeks as of late December, 2010. They take up 1/3 of the screen.
