$9,000 To Join, $3,000/Year: A Facebook For The Rich

rich-people-facebook.jpg "Hey -- check out the picture of this @sshole." Netropolitan is a new social network for the rich. It costs $9,000 to join and $3,000 yearly in membership dues. It's supposed to serve the purpose of an 'online country club'. I just joined. Oh -- and I just got my first wall comment! "Credit card declined, please choose another payment option." Dammit.
This is 100% real, and I believe there is a need and an audience for this service," said James Touchi-Peters, Netropolitan's founder. Touchi-Peters, 48, a composer and former conductor of the Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra, said he had trouble finding people to whom he could relate on other social sites. "I saw a need for an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash -- an environment where people could share similar likes and experiences," he said. "We view Netropolitan.club in the same light as any country club out there," he said. "They have initiation fees and yearly dues for members. Netropolitan is an online country club, focused on connecting members around the world. We believe there is a need for a community like this, and we are filling the need."
Sounds like a solid waste of $9,000 and $3,000 a year. I mean, what good is an online country club if there isn't even a pool to pee in? Although, admittedly, I would like 'talking about the finer things in life without any backlash'. OMG, did you see the gazoongas on that chick? Holy Toledo! Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he already hacked himself a profile and is mass-messaging everyone Nigerian prince scams.
