    ok, let me clear this up:

    John23/1W348/GC/AA/1/0011

    john = how many johns, joes, marks, mikes do we see? could be their real names?

    23/1 = date

    W3 = wonderful 3 rounds

    48 = for eight inches

    GC = great cock for fuck

    AA = all acronyms

    1 = once

    0011 = two holes once in each

    LOL....I don't have problem translating my encryption, doesn't say anything that can compromise me or him.

    It does if those escorts' clients also know each other and know who each other is seeing, as is the case with the internet "community".

    I wouldn't mind a one-sided "community", where the prostitutes all know each other and share info but the johns don't. I've had some experiences like that, where prostitutes have referred me to friends who were looking for business. But that's never been at my request. And, in any event, it's different from the kind of references we're talking about here, because in those cases it was prostitutes referring business to each other, rather than johns using references from other prostitutes as part of screening.

    Frankly (and this is probably attributable more to my own ignorance and inexperience than to anything else), I don't see how references of the kind I'm talking about work outside of "communities" open on both sides. I can guaranty you that if I offered most of the prostitutes I see a reference from "Caitlin of New York", they'd have no idea what I was talking about. References from "reputable" prostitutes only make sense if the john has reason to think the receiving prostitute knows the prostitute whose reference is being offerred. But if it's not a community that's open on both sides (i.e., open to johns as well as prostitutes), how would he know that?

    (I have a feeling I'm being completely unclear. If I am, I apologize.)

    Community is a hype word for PMBs. Symbiotic is more like it.

    As for mutual safety, I would bet JL's income that if a hookers' records were grabbed by LE and they were able to tie-in other hookers and guys, hookers would point out as many guys as they could for a better plea bargain. Thats why i argue that all this safety stuff is a ruse and more like a safety insurance policy for hookers. What guy , who is married and may have a serious job, would ever speak against any hooker who could not only nuke him with her Pilot, but could also bring to bear other hookers with equally damaging testimony?

    Although I have no reason to doubt your sincerity, your Pilot could be the key that ties together a lot of guys for inquiring minds.
  5. You explained it well enough for me. Really though, I find that "community" is more fragmented than the boards would lead you to believe... though it definately exists (witness the social gatherings, many of which I've attended). The fact that several escorts have one client in common, and may even know that each is seeing him, does not make the client a member of some community.

    Hot4chicks, do you think I carry my Palm wherever I go? Nope.
    Besides, in my encryption I don't put anything that can compromise me or my client (such as phone number, location or amount).
    I've been in business for many years and I'm always careful with everything I do.
    I want to be safe the same way as YOU.

    betty - you realize, I am sure, that if you're busted and your pilot is taken that a Court can order you to decipher your shorthand?

    Betty,

    O.K. first column is the name what are the other 5 columns, especially the fourth one which look quite interesting. Is it limited to only two characters or can the john rate a tripple A?

    I honestly dont see the benefit of a group of hookers being able to ID ANY guy at ANY time.

    The risk is simply too high.

    But their editorial blurb says it all:

    "Inside the weird 'I'm OK, you're OK' world of one escort website."

    (I have this strange feeling that "weird 'I'm OK, you're OK' world" was stolen from one of my old JAG posts about that site.)

    What it is, I think, is what I call the "circle jerk" phenomenon. Some of the more liberated of you will find this quaint, but I get really weirded out by this idea of a "community" consisting of people who all have fairly meaningless (sorry, Paulus) sex with each other. I can't explain it. That Nerve article about TBD said it much better than I've ever been able to. Maybe I can come up with a link.

    That's part of it.
  17. Is it the thought of us talking about you behind your back?

    I never ask for references...and I feel if I don't answer another providers request for it, she might think I'm jealous or want to keep the client just to myself, which is not true.
    Some guys call or mail me saying they're giving my name as reference. That makes all easier because is their own wish.

    As creepy as Ana's lair ?

    actually it wasn't creepy, it was a huge turn on. Now that kind of stuff I never forget.

    In all seriousness, reading the serious posts in this thread reminds me why I think prostitute references are so creepy.
