Rival to rib.net????

Email from rib international recieved yesterday:


RIB INTERNATIONAL are thrilled to announce the launch of an exciting new feature wholly dedicated to the RIB market. For the first time, RIB users have their own online network; RIBLife provides a central visual RIB community - the centre of attention being the RIBs themselves!

Users set up their own profile page, uploading images and text, ideal not only for individuals, but also racing or expedition teams, clubs, events, etc. RIBlife is a super forum for finding cruising partners, as you can search for RIB users in your area. Or, if you're a skipper looking for crew, RIBlife is an ideal resource for making marine contacts.

The service has just been launched so we need as many RIB people as possible to jump aboard to make this feature a success, as the more people involved the better it gets!!

Plus, it's free to private users!

They obviously aren't letting the truth get in the way of a good bit of advertising puff!

From riblife:
Due to the dangers to children associated with online chatting, users must be 18 years or over.

It is recommended that at no time should female members agree to meet with another member without company. Any meetings should be in company and in a public place.
Just what sort of people are they expecting?! Perhaps they should rename it lowlife.

I'm sure it will be an outstanding success.

Believe me, that has been discussed before!

I am surprised about one thing - Riblife is free? Highly unusual for anything related to Rib International not to cost a fortune!
