    Long Island and Florida are essentially both "isolated" peninsulas and despite all the wild "Florida Man..." news stories, as a Miami native transplanted to Long Island I can assure you that unbelievably the crazies are even worse here. FAR more fascinating is this 20 year old article on Long Island which rings even truer today: http://www.nytimes.com/1993/08/22/magazine/the-devil-in-long-island.html?src=pm

    If for no other reason, read page 1 to find out more about "the unprintable Satanist Ritual Killing Ground Photo" referenced in the opening paragraphs:


    It would be foolish to believe that a single story could sum up the entire range of bizarre and sensational behavior that is Long Island Babylon. Particularly a story that doesn't even mention Amy or Sol, Joey or "Joel the Ripper," little Katie Beers or Howard Stern, much less the "Homeroom Hit Man," the "Angel of Death" nurse, the Islip Garbage Barge or Geraldo Rivera.

    Nonetheless, I feel that the story of the unprintable Satanist Ritual Killing Ground Photo comes close.

    That is fucking crazy...I have to wonder if the guy may have had face pics up, or called from a Blocked number.

    And what I find even more crazy is an undercover cop going onto the website to contact him. Sitting through looking at all the graphic porn ads.

    eagermuscle saidMiami native here transplanted to Long Island, and unbelievably it's even worse here than Florida.

    People need to learn not to just go out and meet anyone off of these sites, you just never know what can happen. Sure, there are lots of guys are just horny and harmless, but they can be some dangerous ones with other motives in mind.

    I often find it really difficult to understand why people, especially gay men, willingly go and meet people whom they know virtually nothing about..... and act as though everyone is who they claim they are.

    This is why I'm explicit about being poor before going out with a man I meet online.

    scary - but these (or other) robberies would probably not happen in the states where normal citizens are allowed to carry guns. Not that most people would actually carry them and be able to use them, but the robber is always afraid that they just might have a gun.

    We recently had a case where someone was murdered by guys he met on Grindr. And that in quaint Ann Arbor.

    There's nothing wrong with doing that though. Women do it, men do it, straight and gay do it.

    What would make it an issue is not doing the proper basic saftey protocols needed before meeting someone. I want (and all of us should) to stray away from 'victim' blaming these people.

    However, by allowing someone you've never met to just come to your place is risky. Adam4adam allows pro-service ads. But, even when I've placed one up...I make it clear that I won't take blocked numbers and the person must have a face picture. I wonder if this guy got off without that criteria.

    I won't meet someone with just a dick picture, or if they won't open their privates. If you talk to a dick, you might get just that in person. A dickhead.

    You'll just end up with 2 dead people. Or maybe just 1...and then what justice does that serve they can't be held accountable?

    Besides, you're assuming that someone is going to have their gun cocked, loaded and aimed everytime they open the door for a stranger? Someone can get all the way to the bedroom, chat, talk, etc...and then a guy can pull a gun out. The robber might pull the gun out quicker than the person who has one.

    The answer isn't guns...but saftey checks/protocols and common sense.

    Scary!!! When meeting people on these sites, I like to meet in a public place such as a mall or Starbucks first. Better safe than sorry.

    long island isn't a peninsula. it's an island. new jersey is. icon_wink.gif

    Technically true when you consider Queens and Brooklyn. However, the only land routes to Nassau and Suffolk counties are through Queens and Brooklyn (geographically in Long Island but culturally considered separate entities part of NYC) just as the only land routes into Florida are through Georgia and Alabama. Plus, in the '80s the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Long Island a peninsula for the purposes of a boundary decision.

    ^^^ This is where people totally blow it. People nowadays are just careless in general, and seem to be totally disassociated from the fact there are individuals out there who can and will hurt them.


    As for the gun issue, I'm just going to let that one go. I don't feel like arguing tonight.

    Doesn't Maniac (1980) take place in Long Island?

    That's the vibe I get.

    This is why I will only meet people from any online type site in a public place. Hate to say it but I never go unarmed. Too many whack jobs out there. I wont be an easy mark for anyone. I also never take cash, have an old phone no one could sell and don't park where it'll be easy to find my car. Some of these are things you all should do aside from the armed thing. Unless its something you want to do. The other stuff should be general practice.

    I beg to differ. Yes meeting someone in public is ideal however what kind of safety checks do you expect one to perform with someone who they meet online? Not a whole lot can be told by someone online which would be easy to verify. Especially since if they have ill intent they are probably lying about 99 percent of what they tell you.

    Criminals are less likely to commit a crime if they think someone is armed and can defend themselves.

    you said you'll end up with one or two bodies and if you kill them what justice is served and they can't be held accountable. Well if they're dead who else can they hurt? I would say that is justice. As long as they pose a risk to physical safety or life then use what ever force necessary to stop them. Including deadly force.

    I wonder if two friends could team up, each texting to the other what stranger exactly they're seeing, when and where, physical description, type of car, license plate number. The risk of each friend having the dirt on the other, a list of and particulars about each and every new trick, might not outweigh the benefit! Someone should invent an app for that!
