Meeting people online can be dangerous on any website, not just craigslist…

I just read this article at WNYT:

Some people may think Craigslist is the only easy target for people with crimes in the real world, but the reality is, it’s very dangerous to meet people online anywhere.

You may think, how can the internet be responsible to destroy a person’s life, when it’s just a simple page on a computer screen? You may think, how can the internet single handedly destroy one person’s life?

While you think it may true that the internet is just a computer, a simple virtual thing that you think it’s not that big of a deal, and you think you’ll be safe on it by putting yourself out there in social networking sites.

While the computer is just the internet true, but the internet doesn’t run by itself, it is runned by human people. That is us. We’re humans. We control the mouse, we control the keyboards that we type on. We use our brains of what we write on the computer screen. When you write to someone else online you don’t even know, they’ll write back with a response. That’s how the internet works. It’s almost like the real world. If you think about it, the internet is the real world.

What you see in people online, is what you get in the real world. The internet is wide open, and if you put yourself out there in social networking sites for the world to see, it’s there forever. You may think that when you do social networking sites, your local area may only know who you are, but the internet is for the whole world to see, not just a small group of people.

Putting yourself online for the world to see can be dangerous. There are criminals and scumb bags with no lives that use the internet like us. People in organized crime and gangbangers are all over the world of the internet, using the internet to target people with crime. Hookers/prostitutes using the internet to sell their bodies to strangers as well.

When you’re online, you must use it safe and carefully, use it smart. Take the same advice you use when you visit cities and go on vacations, “Never talk to strangers”. The same goes for the internet. Never trust a stranger online. No matter how cool and friendly they may seem to them, you never know what kind of person they can be in reality.

You may find the person, your online buddy, that you call a friend, when in reality that person could be a fuckin’ druggy or a pimp, or worse could be a gangbanger or a mob hitman. Or could be drugged up serial killer or serial woman rapist looking for his next victim.

The internet can be a dangerous world. When you’re online, only interact with people that you know and can trust. The same goes for the musicians that interact online, bad things can happen to them too. The internet maybe good to interact with fans online but they need to look at reality that isn’t always a good thing ’cause you can’t trust anyone on this internet thing. I certainly don’t.

  1. How right you are Kev! You have hit the nail by the tail this time. People are neglecting to mention that the real problems in the Craigslist killer case is gambling and whores. This Phillip Markoff is a young, smart, pre med student at Boston U. Some call it Boston JEW. Anyways, this guy graduated from SUNY Albany and had the world by the balls. Except he has a gambling problem. THEY SAY he was looking to pay off some gambling debts. He targeted whores on craigslist. No one cares if whores get beat up and robbed or worse do they? Why could not it have been that whore Paris Hilton or the cum dumpster that slept with Eliot Spitzer?

    I am reminded of my good friend Pauley DeCrestenzo. His dad would tell us growing up that all women were whores. Treat them as such. Except your mom of course.

    I am Randy Poffo and I have spoken!!

  3. Kev, Do you remember a case that happened up your way about 5 years ago? This dude named Shawn Doyle, who lived near Hudson Falls, met a woman from an online dating service. I guess they dated on and off for a bit. She wanted to end the relationship and then suddenly vanished. A few months later some guys out fishing pulled a large utility tool box from the Champlain Canal. The box was locked and they had the police opened it. She was inside. Guess where the missing key was… in Doyle’s truck! They didn’t meet on Craigslist, but it just goes back to what you were saying about the internet in general. There’s good mixed with bad, and sometimes you just don’t know.
