Online photos...identity "Catfish" movie
« on: October 09, 2010, 12:14:43 AM »
OK i just watch 20/20 about a women who used someone else's photos and created an online identity claiming a new identity. The movie is called "catfish".  That real girl and asked her how she felt about the situation. It makes me wonder if anyone has ever been involved in this situation.

Define "use"

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Years ago someone was using one of my photos as a profile pic on gay.com. He wasn't using my name, just my picture. I sent him a message politely asking him to please stop and he took it down. I was alternately flattered and creeped out.

Well Ford, your photos are something special babe. Could you really blame him? :)

Nice that he took down when you asked though. That's classy.

I had a person on gay.com do the same thing to me, but he refused to take my pictures off his profile. I had to contact send a copy of my driver license to gay.com support so they would shut down his profile. It's interesting getting into an argument with "yourself".

Must have been quite the trial.

Tell me, do you shave or wax those tits of yours?

Shave. I'm not incredibly hairy. It takeslonger to shave my face than to shave my chest and stomach.

Interesting.

I used to shave my palms but these days I find waxing is so much more efficient.

Lots of people make up identities on the Internet. It comes with the territory.
Back in the 90's when it first took off, Internet dating and sex cruising sites were filled with stolen pics and identities - more than now I think.  Back then people didn't have digital cameras, so didn't have naked pics. They didn't know how to upload a pic or send a pic.  Back then, people weren't used to exhibition of themselves.

I found some nude pictures of myself on a Gay Military web-site back in 98, I don't know for the life of me just how they got there, but, I kindly ask the site admin to REMOVE them, and he compiled rather quickly  ;D

Not long ago I was talking to guy on line who had a very sexy pic , so sexy in fact I was suspicious why a guy who looked like that was hitting on average me . When he told me his age I told him he sure didn't look his age and asked for another pic .

He sent another and told me it was a recent one with his son and daughter . I couldn't believe how dumb the guy was because the pic he sent with his son in it was the same guy on his full frontal nude pic on a4a .

This jerk was using a naked pic of his 20 something year old son to pick up guys .

I chatted with a guy online years ago who was using a profile pic of Colt model Steve Kelso. He insisted repeatedly that it was him and that his name wasn't Steve Kelso. I sent him the full nude picture that he had cropped and suggested that if he was going to create a fictional online persona he might want to choose someone who wasn't a famous cover model.

If he said he was also a bartender at The Den in Somerset, NJ then yes, it was Steve Kelso.  He's also almost a midget.

Yes it was disturbing, I took those pictures with about 5 other Gay Sailors & Marines back in 85
 when we were all friends, so, someone had to do this, but, I was long gone, and outta the Navy by then, after my time was up along with a Honorable Discharge after serving 8 yrs. it could have been a lot worse
if those got out before I got out of the Navy....FORD, I often wondered just who saw any of them
when I worked as a County Sheriffs Deputy, I kinda doubt it would have mattered all that much  ;D

I also saw the report about the film Catfish on 20/20. Aside from the smiling main characters --the  "deceptors" and "deceptees"--I was intrigued by several other secondary characters in this snap piece about who really is who online.

I found the contrast interesting in the piece regarding the two young disabled step sons who were oblivious to their stepmother's "carrying-ons" and the husband who was brought to awareness and likened the whole thing to a story about Catfish and staying alert to what is going on around you.
