Craigslist, the hugely successful internet classified ad site, has long been known for the rather, um, honest nature of its personal .
From fetishists seeking out others with the same kink, to office workers looking for quick, anonymous hookups during their lunch break, Craigslist has revolutionised the way people around the world get their sexing. But the seemingly anonymous freedom it allows appears to have lulled many into a false sense of security — and in Seattle, over a hundred and fifty of them have just found their personal details published on the web for the whole world to see.
He wanted to see how many responses he could get in 24 hours. He received a grand total of responses viamany including sexually explicit photos of the men — which he then proceeded to post, in their entirety, on the web.
Many used their work addresses. Some sent phone s, or instant messenger screen names. Out of theof them sent pictures — some just of their faces, many others of ruder, less public parts of their anatomy.
A good of them admitted they were married. Fortuny published them all in full, and then set his readers the goal of tracking down and outing the real life identities of as many of them as possible. At least one man who used a work address was identified by a colleague — working at Microsoft.
Fortuny — whose own personal details, including his home address, are readily available online — has already received one threat of violence. More on the story can been seen at the site of blogger Andy Baiowho also speculates that Fortuny may have left himself open to civil action by publishing private details not to mention the possibility of more direct personal retribution.
Whatever the outcome, anybody thinking of looking for sex online might do well to make sure that that anonymous naughtiness actually is anonymous. Poppy Logo.
