back to article Dating app for Trump loners commits YUGE blunder: It leaks more than the West Wing

A much-hyped dating site for Donald Trump supporters in the US is being blasted for shoddy security that may have exposed all of its users to eavesdropping and account theft. Donald Daters pitches itself as "an American-based singles community connecting lovers, friends, and Trump supporters alike." The app, offered for both …

    But, do we really carry if the bigots get pwned?

    I sure don't...

      We should only carry if we exceed our numeric base.

    FAKE NEWS

    Clearly this "Robert Baptiste" is a puppet for the liberal elite. That's why he's posting on Twitter under a different name.

    Donald Daters is a great site - the best site. It's absolutely not an attempt to sucker already proven rubes into giving away their personal details.

    This article is nothing but a deep blue state smear campaign. Sad.

      It's a bit like spam emails intentionally misspelling words, because the last person you want to run your con on is someone who'll notice small flaws. If they don't notice the obvious flaws then they'll probably fall straight for the scam.

    Well of course a conservative app will be shoddily made

    Everyone knows all the best programmers work in Silicon Valley, and they are overwhelmingly liberal or libertarian. The MAGA heads are all third rate programmers, as demonstrated by their third rate security that would embarrass even Adobe!

      Well thats not fair, there has been loads of reports of Silicon Valley startups leaving MongoDB instances open

        Yeah...

        MongoDB is not exactly the model for security. Default install? Let's go totally unprotected!

      P'raps it's a Liberal plot to "Out" Trumpers seeking new mates and friends, and is actually written by those alleged liberal silicon valley programmers.

      And Libertarian is a very misleading label. It sounds like Liberal, but is actually more akin to Republican extremism. The current despot in chief is more Libertarian than Republican.

      Their code is as good as their English

      Shite like "ZOG's Nightmare" is what passes for a game in their hateful little echo chamber.

      Uh, don't go looking for that on YouTube if you're at work. It's a white supremacist FPS.

    +1 for the image

    Willing to bet ($1M) that users are almost exclusively male.

    Though I must admit I am surprised at the number of women supporting Trump

    None I'd be interested in dating, though...

      Re: +1 for the image

      "Conservative women who believe and family, honor and self reliance are terrible."

      "You want one of those poly/liberal hate machines that gets drunk and cheats on you and blames it on everyone else. "

      This is what you sound like. I'm sorry, but I think your view is skewed. You marry a conservative woman who focuses on a family and honor. You don't grow old with a liberal, you get divorced and pay for their next nonsense adventure.

      The modern liberal woman is inwardly focused, selfish, a bad mate. A union of two or a marriage is a partnership, it will never succeed with the extremely selfish.

    A rose by any other name...

    A shoddy app, by any name, is still a shoddy app.

    Assuming the makers of the app are Trump supporters is unsupported - using his name means nothing (Just how democratic is the DPRK?). About all we know for sure is they don't know much about data security.

      "Assuming the makers of the app are Trump supporters is unsupported"

      True enough. Two of them are apparently app developers and may just have been paid to do the job. Of the other 1605, I'd assume that a fair number are journalists and hostile politicians (under fake profiles) looking to find out who else is there and what dirt there might be. Remember, when Ashley Madison went down, it turned out that most of the female members were just using it as a business tool.

    There are no secure dating apps

    NEVER trust any dating app. I finally created my own dating email address after getting too many NSFW photos on my normal email. Usually from dodgy locations as well. My current girlfriend and I were introduced by a friend.

    AC cause dating is personal.

    Holy crap! This is a real thing? You know partisan politics has gone too far when you have to be a supporter of the "right" party to get a date. And it's named after the Donald too? Ego by gad!

    Is it April already?

        "We need someone's kids to send down the coal mines."

        Ah, but Trump has promised to re-open all the coal mines because climate change is a Chinese hoax!

        Except he seems reluctant to claim it's a hoax now, has agreed that the climate is changing (well, that's what it does anyway, of course) and even agrees that pollution is playing some part in it. But he does think that it will somehow reverse again without anyone doing anything.
