After I saw a story about it on the news, I was curious and spent some time looking through DontDateHimGirl.com. Of course you can't trust 100% of what it says with anonymous postings. But I can see some usefulness to this site. For example, say you're starting to date someone and have some uneasy feelings about him, and decide to see if he's on this site and find some information that jives with your intuition. This might be the impetus for you to break up with this person. Chances are, regardless of the accuracy of this info, this person wasn't right for you anyway.

On the other hand, from how you described the other version of this site, it's just completely piggish and useless.

1) I think you are assuming too much altruism on the part of the women who post there. As Meron stated, there's no fact checking involved, so it is just as likely that someone posted something on the site out of spite after a messy breakup than anything else. In fact, they don't even have any way of background checking the poster. Say you're dating someone and a male friend who wants to date you wants you to break up with them so he has a shot. He could just as easily post some lies about the new boyfriend as anyone else.

2) Piggish maybe, useless no. You can't equate the two. You consider it useless because, well, you aren't very piggish. But if I am looking for an easy lay, then that site could be very useful. I could just as easily say that Dontdatehimgirl.com is vindictive and useless. Moreover, Ihadher.com had all the same info as Dontdatehimgirl. There were tons of posts that amounted to "this bitch will cheat on you" or "that skank has the clap" just like the ones on the other site that say "that asshole will cheat on you" or "that jerk has herpes." It just also had other information. Really, there was nothing stopping a guy from posting "Steph was one of the nicest girls I ever dated, things didn't work out with us, but you should totally give her a shot. She's nice and sweet and a wildcat in the sack." Dontdatehimgirl has no provisions for that. Its only purpose is to spew venom.
