So the first profile on there is that of a woman who describes herself as a "MILF". Is that even grammatically or logically possible? Is she saying that she'd like to fuck herself, but is somehow unable to--perhaps because she doesn't live up to her own standards? Enquiring minds want to know.

Am I being overly paranoid or would registering at a site like this be a bad idea from a legal standpoint?

Cops: So, Mr. Smith, do you use any illegal drugs?

Me: No. None at all.

Cops: So then why exactly do you have an account on, uhh... potpartner.com?

Me: Look. Out that window. A polar bear!

but wait...here's an idea...!

1. We find sites that are marginal and probably a front for something illegal.

2. We post a link here on MeFi.

3. We snark a bit.

4. Someone e/mails linked site owner about snarks.

5. Linked site owner pays $5 to defend his girls.

6. Profit (for Matt at least)

potpartner , are the ellipses meant to simulate real speech, to indicate a laid-back attitude, or a conciliatory attitude, or what? Not to be (overly) snarky; I really have wondered why people on some sites tend to type like this.

Did this start out as a parody site, but then some people actually signed up and created profiles? I can't believe that at least some of the featured profiles aren't parodies, but then they don't all strike me that way. Maybe I've just been away from stoner culture for too long to tell, or maybe this is just more evidence that Baudrillard was right all along.

I'm a recovering over-user of ellipses, but man, never so many for so little effect.

And, is it just me or would this site make a great resource for cops needing to fill their arrest quota for the month?

Finally, yeah, all stoners are hot chicks looking to hook up and hang... at least that's what the site seems to show. (damn! ellipses sneaking in, off to do penance in the language sweatshop)

One of my college boyfriends really really liked to smoke pot. The guy was always lighting up & I wasn't into it. Pot just makes me sleepy. We were both journalism majors when we met. He wanted to be a great writer & was working nights managing a Godfather's Pizza. That was 20 years ago or so.

Last I heard he's now managing a Boston Market. Just sayin'.

There's definitely some question whether this site may be aiding distribution but who cares, it's what the internet was created for, a kind of enormous amplifier for human folly, the tower of babel multiplied a billion times of over reaching ever higher and higher, pushing always to deeper and deeper depths until God shows up and declares the party's over and drowns everybody, man, woman and child, innocent and guilty alike, in a terrible lake of fire.

Until then def smoke up.

So I had to see what was going on here.. so I figured I would reply to some of you.. (not to promote the site). Ohh yeah to answer on how the site came about , yes , when I put it up , I did not think it would work (since my other sites are just industry specific search engines...boring...) But from day one people have come in droves... As far as I can figure it just fills a need. People that smoke want to meet others that smoke...

You just described the years 1990-1994 for me. It was either this, or playing Risk in the Mac lab with my friend Ken and then getting Sheetz dogs, making 32-ounce screwdrivers, and mourning our lack of sex lives.

Ah, Carlisle.

But here's what I'm really pissed about: we had grunge, and flannel, and angsty groaners like Eddie Vedder, and sincerity. And I so did not get laid, nor did anyone I knew, because we were all being sincere, man, and understanding. And all the girls were hiding their figures under the flannel and we were all deeply concerned about the earth and most of us weren't shaving ANYTHING.

Then I look up ten years later, all of a sudden it's all skin-tight PORN STAR t-shirts and totally gratuitous sex and "blowjobs don't rilly count so, like, what the hell" and Paris Hilton and THERE'S NO JUSTICE.

So thanks a lot, potpartners. Thanks a lot. Now I've got flashbacks.
