To Dump Or Not To Dump, That Is The Question

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A web-based entrepreneur is trying to give classic columnists like Dear Abby the old heave-ho with a new internet advice column.

Creator Howie Wang has created three sites,, and that allows average Joes and Janes to give advice on the love life questions people post to the site.

Wang says he created the alternative to typical advice columns because, “There’s something about personal advice columns that is dictatorial and not very democratic.”

He figures the average person is better at dispensing advice than newspaper columnists.

The website launched last week, but already advice-seekers have posted conundrums like: I was set to dump my girlfriend, but she just found out that her grandmother has cancer.

Another asks: My ex’s new girlfriend is a tramp. Should I let him know about it?
