Tinder, Bumble face inquiry over sex offenders, minor use

A House subcommittee is investigating dating services such as Tinder and Bumble for allegedly allowing minors and sex offenders to use the services. In separate letters Thursday to the companies, the subcommittee has asked for information on users’ ages, procedures for verifying ages and any complaints about assaults, rape or the use of the services by minors.

Eh, it's user responsibility to agree you're above age. As for the sex offenders, why shouldn't they be able to use it?

It's bad that these kind of things happen and I prefer than it didn't, but this would be like sueing Craigslist, for getting mugged on an exchange, or for someone selling you a broken item.

Meh, it's in the user agreement to be truthful about age so I doubt they have any liability for that.
