Is Jason Fortuny at it again?

posted by on October 11 at 8:19 AM

This Craigslist ad looks very familiar—it looks a lot like this Craigslist ad. Same picture too.

Is Jason Fortuny conducting another Internet sex-ad sting? Using the same photo and text? Here’s hoping no one falls for it this time.

Phony sex ads on Craigs list? Say it isn't so!!! (Hell, I have seen my pics posted on there and let me say, I have a much freaker life than I could ever have imagined)

It would suck to have a sexual fetish for sex stings.

I'd think you would assume any link on The Stranger is NSFW just to be on the safe side. I sympathize, but don't blame it on anyone but yourself.

Simple solution: Anyone not at work follow the link and flag the ad.

@6:

Especially the ones with "SEX" as a subject header...

I wouldn't mind meeting that one for drinks. Or woods-based photo shoots, I suppose. :/

Oh I dunno...couldn't someone set up a reverse sting? Meet him with a camera in hand, upload them as "watch out for this guy!"?

No, I'm not. Let it go, Dan.

nsfw is a great acronym that means not safe for work. Learn it, love it, and most importantly... USE IT!

We can't all work for cool indy publishers, Dan.

Apparently lostboy is one of the butthurt morons who fell for one of the ads. Or, maybe just doesn't have a sense of humor.

I love this guy and his pranks. Craigslist is suckersville. I posted as a 400 pound woman looking for a gang-bang on "Casual Encounters" and got 40-plus responses. I've even pranked you rubes on the Slog.

I left the same comment on rfjason's LiveJournal entry. It's gone now.

Clearly, I have no sense of humor.

@17

Oh, is that what your actions reflected? A 'sense of humor'?

Posted by Mr. Poe | October 11, 2007 12:06 PM

No, your actions, rfJERK, reflect the sick, twisted, desperate actions of a pathetic individual who wields judgment against innocent human beings like a brat wields a hammer, destroying lives and livlihoods without regard to consequence or aftermath.

We're talking about someone operating on such a depraved level that sociopathic doesn't even begin to describe him. This is a guy who recently hosted an event in BLACKFACE just to anger African Americans. This is a guy who regularly makes jokes about any new tragedy in the news just to muck it up with his fellow, sick-minded loser friends.

This is a guy who needs to be put away for good where inmates can have fun using him like the trash he is.

I think all of the ED crew right now is too focused on making vans explode and gathering thousands of passwords on the secret internets to bother with something so 100 years ago.

Also, RFJason should stop hitting on my girlfriend. I'm only kind of kidding here.

A funny prank: posting a W4M ad on Craiglist and publishing all the dick pics (without any identifying information). An unfunny "prank": what that asswipe did.

Posted by keshmeshi | October 11, 2007 1:16 PM

Which one is your girlfriend, juris? I hit on so many. All part of being an uber-sociopath apparently.

Posted by rfjason | October 11, 2007 2:11 PM

Jason you know you don't hit on girls.

You know that you are cripplingly shy. You also know that you are super scrawny and that you've been rejected enough live alone with your cat, spending mostly all of your time online on the "internets" and looking at porn. Then go to your little pathetic job working with other pathetic little livejournalers.


This "sense of humor" that you purportedly have will come in handy as you comfort yourself as an immensely alone man for your entire life.

It's amusing to watch rfjason keep coming back, trying to blunt the condemnation any way he can.

It must kill him that he can't control the conversation here, but if he was capable of looking away, he wouldn't be the kind of guy who needs to delete critical comments to begin with.

@12

I don't buy it for one second that you're not behind it, rf. No one is stupid enough to post the same ad again except you. What's wrong? Didn't get enough attention last time so now you're trying to stir it up again? The only way you get any validation in your sad sorry life is to ruin others? Tearing other people down doesn't make you bigger or better, dude, it just makes you an ass.

@jerry

So, are you the Jerry who got busted for sending dick pics from your cube at Microsoft, using your Microsoft e-mail address, or are you the Jerry who got busted for sending half a dozen dick pics including the one of you holding it up with your hand that still had the WEDDING RING on, using your Christa McAuliffe Academy work e-mail address?

Please, tell me which life I ruined.

It's interesting when he frames it like he did a public service for people.

Wait, what's that? It was just to get publicity for his website.

You guys seem far too eager to slam the guy. I think he knows how you feel. I don't think he cares.

And I think we learned a valuable lesson from the prank, namely, if nothing else, that you shouldn't send pics of your dick from a work or personal e-mail in response to an anonymous sex ad, especially if you're married with kids.

Yeah I work with Jason (he sits next to me) and I think you all should know he's laughing his ass off at all of you right now.

**Soory, Jase. I hate to ruin your fun, but someone has to stand up for these guys.**

It's probably just Jason doing this to create confusion / discredit

Actually, Jason Fortuny isn't the asshole here. The people who fell for his brilliant trolling, on the other hand, are. I've never seen such an outpouring of asshurt from idiots who send pictures of their genitals to anonymous people on the internet, and then whine about how it ruined their lives later.

Keep on keeping on, even if it isn't you this time around.

Posted by Roger Williams | October 12, 2007 1:34 AM

Roger Williams @45, your defense of Fortuny seems to rest on an assumption that blame/responsibility somehow must rest with one and only one party. Sure, the people he suckered were idiots doomed by their own desperation. And Fortuny is a malicious asshole for victimizing them.

The malicious often point to the stupid. It's the easiest of the false justifications.
