    I totally feel like I'm channeling Fit4FitNDenver right now but w/e: YAY another reason to hate Seattle! Apparently Seattle's gay world has the most fatties (assuming the ratio of body types between those on the internet and those not are analogous throughout the US), and I believe it.

    Also, Boston has the fewest barebackers and fewest HIV+ people. Correlation? Not at all.......... icon_wink.gif

    in b4 people start bitching about me not giving fat guys a chance. I'll give them a chance once they spend their money on a gym membership instead of super-sizing everything.

    lol. The research method is pretty bad.

    You have to assume that CL ads are representative of the respective gay populations that they have.... what if one population doesnt use CL much? What if only certain subsegments of the gay population tend to use craigslist?

    This is terrible sampling and really, because of it... it doesnt carry much in terms of validity.

    And there are other sites that people who bareback use more frequently.... and I know a lot of people who never use CL to hook up - although they hook up a lot. So....

    Some of this was all outlined in their limitations....

    It has some interesting results, but really not much can be taken in terms of generalizing to the population as a whole. The only generalizations you MIGHT be able to make, are about those individuals in each respective city who DO use craigslist... which is only a small subsection of the total population.

    is it a coincidence the "Position" response had an average of 69?
