fear sells

god, what’s next? one of those rubber masks that the villain or spy peels off in the action movie, suddenly turning Nicholas Cage, a-ha, into Bruce Willis? You could wear your rubber mask until you totally trusted someone.

I interviewed Herb Vest of True.com for the book and while it’s awful he suffered a bizarre personal tragedy (see Murder in Gainesville), I think it’s skewed his view of the world.

I love the end of the Washington Post article, though, about the Mom screen.

    Victimization by crime can skew one’s perceptions, but if there’s a specific correlation between a dead man found in his company’s restroom and online dating, I missed it among the links or source site…

    I have a problem with Mom possibly eliminating potentials without notifying or consulting her daughter.

    It seems to me that none of this concern about not really knowing someone is specific to online dating. The woman who found out her guy was an ex-con (why did it take her 8 months to Google him, anyway?)could just as well have met him in real life.

    And does the woman whose mother is posing as her to communicate with men online not realize that she’s the one doing the defrauding?

    I know! Every time someone’s raped or murdered it’s somehow the Internet’s fault if perp and victim exchanged so much as an e-mail.

    And good point about fraud Mom, I just thought it was sweet the mother and daughter were so close; having your (my) own actual mother be so up in your (my) business would be kind of horrible.

    …….maybe online dating sites should bear a disclaimer…….

    ……..’can be likened to extreme sports,.. same rules apply’…….

    …….or not…!!…..
