    Well, I guess that explains where edesignuk got the funds for his iMac and laptop. I just hope he doesn't start shirking his moderator duties... :D

    Yup. "It" can be delivered overnight via FedSEx, for an additional charge. ;)

    I just thought that's how he got all those nice shots of Keira - I assumed she was a client of his.

    More interesting quotes from the article:

    That seems pretty significant.

    I guess that's one way to avoid disease.

    Nice pun. I guess they should've used Cialis or something.

    Haha. Opens up a whole new world of text messaging "languages."

    Of course, picture phones make this all plausible, I guess.

    Apparently yes, since the site is hosted in the Netherlands, where it's legal, and the "use" of the site - at least, as I gathered from the story - is legal in the UK.

    IIRC, it's the solicitation part of the deal that's illegal. You can't go out and find customers...but the handing over cash bit is OK. It's something that I've never really looked into :rolleyes:

    So I guess if the solicitation part is handled outside the UK, that's how they're getting round it?
