Hey, That DABA Thing Is Totally Fake. Who Knew?

So in news that surprises no one, alleged Dating A Banker Anonymous "founder" Laney Crowell now admits that the whole thing was made up. There's no support group, the blog entries are fictional, there are no members (the closest thing there is to a support group is "I go out to brunch with my friends and talk about guys and dating"), there are no actual failing relationships, and they don't even know anyone who's actually a "DABA girl" in the way they described.

So for those of you who followed the initial post and the Times response we got a couple of weeks back, it ends not with a bang, but with an interview in a coffee shop.

The New York Times has now published its "Editor's Note," which essentially says that it used the wrong terminology in describing the group.
