In essence we're closer to what people perceive the web should really be about."

Harburn adds, "ProfileHeaven users are tightly knitted but friendly bunch and we don't suffer the same level of commercial abuse from spammers and fake users. We're not the biggest social networking site, but according to the voting public we're the best."
