    It didn't surprise me that the Orlando killer was on apps, interacting with other users and note taking on their online behaviors. Islamic terrorists are pretty meticulous in their pre-chaos research, almost like a psycho version of a 1960s film spy.
    Orlando gunman had used gay dating app and visited LGBT nightclub on other occasions, witnesses say

    I also wouldn't be surprised to find out that the killer was also a repressed self-hating homosexual, although I know many homophobes are just plain, straight haters with no sgl attractions. Although I prefer meeting dudes in-person, the old fashioned way, I've checked out all the apps to get a vibe on today's dating scene. Those of us who've downloaded or used the apps know the online nomenclature runs, for whatever reasons, from aliases and avatars, to guys who have no problem using their real names and photos. We've all heard the Craigslist horror stories, or of the occasional Jackd-The-Ripper hookup from hell. How do you think the Pulse massacre will affect app usage? What about pre-screening for account set-ups? Should users of apps be required to enter real world info such as legal name, birthdate, SSN, drivers license, etc.?

    It will not have any real impact.
    Pre-screen how?
    Absolutely not.

    Sadly, not a damn thing is going to change in regard to dating apps. Not from the companies' perspectives and certainly not from the users' perspectives. Americans have a very short attention span, and sadly this incident will be forgotten within a week or so and it'll be "business as usual". The only way this situation will be repeatedly reawakened is, if my personal {conspiracy} theory is correct, this incident is to be utilized as a "weapon" to fuel the {carefully planned} misguided hatred of a bunch of dumb hick f#$ks in order to finagle one's way into the White House.

    There will be no change at all on the apps. What I know will happen is that Gay Muslim men, Men of middle eastern decent or even those bearing such similarities will receive more hate on the apps. With 'Go back to your country' or 'Not into explosive situations/Types' written on profile descriptions or they will just get no reply when trying to start up a conversation or simply just be blocked!

    Put this out there to see what folks think, I don't really have a policy suggestion or desire. I suppose screening akin to financial transactions or other verifications online.

    And, as I figured, it's starting to get out that the killer was probably self-hating, religious, repressed gay. So, that would be a shame for Muslim and Southwest Asian/North African gay men who are comfortable in their own identities. Once again, it seems like we can't escape the necessary conversation about organized religion's effect on lgbt folk. That's why I don't fuck with psychologically DL dudes who don't accept what they are (as opposed to guys who are discreet for strategic reasons such as navigating employment); this dude was an Afghan Kaldrick King with a SAW and ammo.

    Not to demean the topic or situation any, but Kaldrick King was hot as fuck and would have been converted over by the hordes of horny gays lusting after him(assuming like this guy he was not a 'public figure'). From what they are saying (unsubstantiated right now) people tried to be friendly with him(the murderer/jihadist/whateverhewas) but he was a nut and pulled out a knife on someone one time-as crazy 'down at the bar' as he was at work and at home.

    My guess is that guys who use dating apps will have much the same reaction as guys who go to clubs like Pulse > terrorists of whatever stripe are not going to take this away from me/us. So those individuals will continue to use dating apps, though for a time they may be a little more careful.

    In talking with friends who use dating apps, and when I think about the time when I did, I believe that guys already factor in risk and make a calculated judgment weighed against the danger associated with an app.

    It'll have no impact and I don't believe it really should. You may think twice, just like the airport thinks twice and pre-screens, government buildings think twice and has metal detectors, etc.

    People still fly, visitors still go to the pentagon, the trade center is up and running, and dudes are still gonna hook up and date or fvck via apps. We not gonna let sick twisted a$$ holes censor our way of life no matter what. Yes, a certain amount of pre-caution comes with knowing something went down by this method in the past, but changing it? HELL NAH.

    If that was the case, we would never do sh*t. Don't go into government building, no trains, no elementary schools, and countless other things. Terror has touched in every way of life. The apps are not immune.
