    Hi Markus, Thank you for your website. This is the first dating site I have ever posted on and find it very user friendly for me. I like the fact that is is very clear and right to the point. Also, your setting features are great at allowing only those only one wants to contact them. Your concept is great too, keep up the good work!

    How accurate are these numbers for your site? I always find Compete to be off by a large percentage. Of course I don’t have the volume you have so maybe their estimates are better for POF.

    Hi Markus,
    Don’t know whether I’m in a state of denial or just a state………… :-}

    The astounding numbers involved in just your industry are mind-boggling and the sort of profits that one would only expect from a small war, or Columbian Export Farming.

    I simply cannot get my mind around the extraordinary finance figures, much less traffic statistics involved.

    However, thank you for this blog.

    I keep returning every so often and am impressed by your nonchalance as much as the numbers involved and your extraordinary performance with virtually no staff, no “real” equipment and no mega-budget is as baffling as it is inspirational to one who has not stopped trying to get off the ground and into the Cyberbog since almost before you were even born…..

    I started the second Fido BBS System in Australia around 1984………

    Of course, you may never see this missive, but I just keep smiling every time I read about PLO’s and fantastic investment requirements to match fantastic profit claims (one day) and I do think of you.

    What makes me so happy as even a non-geek, is that you SEEM to be one of the worst marketers I’ve ever seen…….🙂
    AND I only want a fraction of your success out there, just a fraction…….

    Thank you,
    Cordially,
    Himagain (The original)

    Hi Markus,
    I’ve just finished reading your entire Blog here from Day 1.
    The word “inspirational” is a overworked these days, but you are inspirational on several levels.
    Oh, Ok, we know that you are really a maths genius. A true numbers analyst – and not many of us have THAT talent or the world would be a different place!🙂

    Oh, and also some kind of reincarnated Seymour Cray, but all that aside, you have been a literal not-small light in my trying to find my way through the Cyberbog and get some usable truths.

    In one of your posts you mentioned my own firm belief that the only “expert” is the one who initiated/did it. Everyone else is dangerous!

    The catch is that those who do know how usually don’t want to tell anyone else…. logically enough.
    I’ve met a lot of Big Shots in my time, names that people only read about usually, and none of them were really forthcoming with data like you. (I tried!)

    But you really aren’t scared of losing, are you.

    Thanks again for all the fish,

    Marcus,
    A funny P.S.
    I’ve spent several years trying to figure out how to establish my Project X out there and the only way it will work is with big numbers of visitors. ( Not YOUR numbers, 1% of them)

    (I’ve tested it – it works. It has trashed a few small “renta-space-Shared Hosts)
    Everybody still keeps telling me that I need enormous “tin box” resources to make it work and millions of capital upfront.

    YOU did it with no hardware. But you do keep alluding to the idea that it isn’t so difficult to do……..
    What am I missing here?
    I have a little dedicated Server on a farm and the only “test”/advice on it showed it wouldn’t stand the strain of 1% of your action.

    Obviously I’ve been had.
    But how does one setup the hardware to do what your original did?
    I always understood that MS Servers were way under the performance potential of Unix/Linux?
    (Mine is currently Fedora switching right now to CentOS)

    It’s no wonder you got attacked for such crazy notions……..🙂 but how can I get the basic hardware and 1% numbers handling ability in a box like you started with when I’m geekless?

    Where do I find a young geek that could set up a Frind Starter Box?

    (Written as a fully-fledged optimist – who knows someone just might read this…… and….)

    Давно хотел у вас спросить, автор, а вы где живёте? В каком городе?🙂

    Занемательно, прям как в фильме Унесенные ветром, я аж прослезился.

  11. Fish Killer Says:

    Hey Marcus what are you doing about the serial killer on your fish site that has been killing women. How is it that its not all over the place yet. Your system sucks and it can not stay free forever. You will be forced to charge a fee to stop these maniacs from killing again. I recommend a paid service. Marcus is only init for the money the ads provide for him. I have met marcus in person years back and he really needs to do something before he finds himself in a bad place.
