Seriously. I hit up LinkedIn and bam: Benji Hill, Marketing person for FounderDating (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/benji-hill/26/aab/950). This kind of dissembling is utterly pathetic. It is so disingenuous it makes me puke in my mouth a little.

I suppose if I knew Dave McClure or Andy Weissman a bit better, I might be able to get Benji in some real trouble, but he will have to live with the knowledge that he is a tool. That has to be worse.

More to the point, if you are a technical person and interested in meeting potential co-founders, you could meet with me. I am a business-ey guy, easy to Google and somewhat legit. I actually have attended two meetups (Which Benji, based in SF, will never do), have no preconceived start-up idea, but am always looking for good ideas and good future co-founders. Also, I like great cappuccinos.

Same here. I applied and never hear anything. Is it just a scam and are they just trying to gather email adresses?

Yeah, I applied to this a few months ago but was not approved to join. No reason given.
