Totally agree.

More to the point, this is the kind of problem that the market can
solve better, faster, and cheaper than any "solution" a court or
legislature might produce. At least one competing site,
(which is open to all persuasions), has already started a major ad
campaign aimed at people turned down by eHarmony, offering (IIRC) two
weeks free.

This is why the free market will ultimately prevail. Every problem is
an opportunity for somebody to make money.
