Dating a banker anonymous blog
Dating A Banker Anonymous (DABA) is a safe place where women can come together – free from the scrutiny of feminists– and share their tearful tales of how the mortgage meltdown has affected their relationships.
DABA Girls was started by two best friends whose relationships tanked with the economy.
The Times responded to Holmes, defending the piece and snottily concluding: I'm not sure what is thought might be fake about this.
Ravi did talk to some of the men to verify the relationships and get their side.
Even more explicit was the explanation Newsweek's Tony Dokopuil got from site cofounder Laney Crowell, whosays that what the Times described as a "support group" of about 30 women is actually a full-blown parody - and it's at least partly fictionalized.

But Holmes' skepticism has been vindicated, based on the "Editor's Note" in Wednesday's Times admitting the January 28 article by freelance reporter Ravi Somaiya was overblown. 28 about women who commiserated over dating Wall Street bankers caught in the financial crisis described a group they had formed, Dating a Banker Anonymous, as a support group. Its creators originally told The Times that about 30 women had participated, but since publication, they have said that all involved were friends.
Laney Crowell, one of the women who started the blog, said in the article that it was "very tongue in cheek;" she has since described it as a satire that embellishes true experiences for effect.
