Cornell Sun Sets up Sting Operation on CraigsList

Cornell Sun Sets up Sting Operation on CraigsListNoting our coverage of November’s “incrediblyyyyyyyyyy sexual” Cornell Craigslist orgy planner, the Cornell Daily Sun played To Catch a Predator last Friday, publishing a story in which a team of intrepid reporters pose as an NSA-seeking female on Craigslist, and then giggle wildly when they receive “over 50 responses in two days.” Always the tease, Sun kept its unwitting subjects anonymous, but we have no doubt they facebooked every single entry, because seriously, how could you not? Somewhere, a “36-year-old professor” is super red-faced.

The article, entitled “Everybody’s Doing It,” features the sage advice of columnist Jenna B. and extended quotations from their responses. Our favorite:

So you say you’re looking to experiment eh? As an engineer I know how to experiment.

Given the Sun‘s fascination with “homosexual and bi-sexual men” who want to “explore… without having to come out,” we wonder if there is an alternate version of this article where the Sun‘s tricky staff writes an m4m listing. They can call it “Everybody’s Doing It, Part II: Panic Attacks Sweep Closeted Gay Population.” Ithaca’s “Casual Encounters” is about to suffer a loss of activity… or a huge spike, depending on how much anonymous sex-seekers enjoy exhibitionism.

    Hey she looks like my wife except less chesty. I see the cia rats running this crap blog are busy trying to bait the ivy league youngsters to contribute commentary to their own character assassination in the future. T.I.A., Total Information Awareness and Echelon, and no T&A, record every piece of communication in the world so your intelligence community can get judicial authorization to go back and look at everything you’ve ever said or written for decades. Your evil little wanna be c.i.a. ivygateblog are grotesque sellouts to all your classmates. Treat them accordingly, they’re your enemy.

    Any speculation on which craigslist post was the Sun’s? Did they remove the post before publishing?

    Cornell is a miserable place. Everyone knows the students are ugly.

    Cornell is only “Ivy League” in the athletics sense of the term
