Okay, how about Elon Musk. He has a huge fortune and is making a difference with Tesla Motors and SpaceX.

Ask the engineers and software developers at Tesla or SpaceX if they like the work-life balance or salary. At least, those who haven't been brainwashed by the Cult of Elon.

And we think winning the lotto max of 55 million is a lot. A simple fucking website like POF sells for 10x as much.

Being able to sell a company for that much is pretty much winning the lottery. There are tons of "simple" websites and apps that are worth billions. Right time, right idea I guess

it's less about buying the website and more about buying the user base

As much as you might want to 'help' everybody else, they don't/can't see things in the same context as you...they never will, and will push you away when you try...so if you cant beat them, why not join them (the markuses or others that are apparently making money off other peoples misery)?
