    Social Network for Millionaires

    The income gap between the richest and poorest Americans continues to grow.
    Another brick in the wall.
    Today brings news of Netropolitan.club, a social network for obnoxious rich people. (Or, as its PR representative puts it, an “exclusive online country club” for “busy individuals, hungry for a place to communicate with like-minded people.")
    "Netropolitan is designed to be the place to talk about your last European vacation or new car without the backlash.”

    Do you get the feeling that rich people just don't want to be around us?

    Perhaps.

    This is no different than the wealthy using private aircraft instead of commercial airlines, I say so be it and find little to be upset about.

    Starting to sound like you have just as much contempt for them and you claim they do for you in wanting an exclusive social network. So again, the problem is?

    You're joking, right? The entire point of the social network universe is to both take preexisting social circles and/or create new social circles and put them in cyberspace. We have such physical networks, facebook groups, and so on for any demographic (including the poor, single mothers, etc etc.)

    Why are you so irate?

    I find it extremely difficult to believe that you're not selective of the social circles you date in.

    I've got to agree with Fiddy here. This really doesn't mean anything.
