Wisconsin man ordered to stay off Internet after after a Craigslist sex prank went horribly wrong

Apparently, 31-years-old Willis created six Craigslist ads under false name, pretending to be his female neighbor, who is known as Dawn. The ads caused several naked men to visit his neighbor's house, only to find out she wasn't the person who made the online requests for sex.

The campaign to send naked men to his neighbor began in November 2012. Luckily, the police caught up with him soon after.

It should have been a harsher punishment, considering just how badly that could have gone down.

It didn't go "horribly wrong."

It went about the way any rational person could easily foresee.

You're right, of course.

Curious that there are people out there who would show up naked in response to an ad-any ad-on the internet.
Makes you wonder what forces will be unleashed during a genuine crisis...we need to be better armed.

It should qualify as ID theft.

So you read an ad and show up at a house NAKED? There is a whole lot of stupid going down in this story.

That this 31 year old DWEEB did this asinine “prank” clearly warrants a good old fashioned beat-down, but I can say that the would be “Romeos” that showed up at this poor gals home aren’t any better. They also deserve a good ass-kicking, too.

The guys showing up to this woman’s house are just as depraved as the guy who posted the Craigslist “joke.”

And what is this “30 months without internet” sentence? Give him some prison time with guys who haven’t seen a woman in a while, and let’s see how funny he thinks his joke on his neighbor is then.

” The ads caused ...”

No. The ads did not cause anything. Assorted a$$holes read the ads and acted of their own volition.

So if I take an ad out saying jump off the empire state building and people do it but I’m the idiot? He’s just thinking the herd and identifying sexual deviants.

Ads have been posted on Craigslist many times giving an address and saying that everything is free, just come on in and help yourself.

People show up and start loading TVs and furniture. Then are shocked if anybody objects.

(Shaking head in disbelief.)

This was no prank. Pranks aren’t supposed to endanger anyone else. This was some vindictive act on his part. shudder. If my neighbor did this to me, the police wouldn’t have to worry about him! I’d view it as self defense to be rid of him.

Definitely, the punishment should fit the crime.

I agree with you. The best way to enforce 30 months without the internet is to put him in a cell where they don’t have computers.

As for enforcing a no-contact order with women, from what I gather of this guy, that sentence is already a lifetime self-imposed sentence.

Most people wouldn't consider advocating for homo-sexual rape to be a conservative value.

Not to mention extra-judicial punishment.

I agree but sometimes I do long for the days of the stocks and the public floggings.

Some people just need to feel a little pain and they will stop acting like jerks.

The sex prank went wrong when he forgot that he placed the ad and answered it along with the others.

I wonder what the neighbor did to make him mad there could be more to the story.

Too funny, just shows that there are a lot of very strange people out there. Who would have thought that it would be considered normal to show up naked at a home that you’ve never been to? Really I’m surprised but this is kind of the equivalent of what some guys used to do by writing “for a good time call ...” in the men’s bathroom at a bar or some other place and putting some girls phone number out for all to see.

The punishment seems to fit the crime in that no one was harmed by this “prank”. People do stupid things all the time and I don’t see it being justified to drop the hammer on this idiot for what happened. If on the other hand something really bad had happened to the woman then sure an extended stay on the tax payer dime in confinement would be warranted.

I agree with you. Because somebody has been sentenced to prision is know reason they deserved to be raped. I find it offensive that people think this guy, or anyone in prision, should be raped.

I never advocated for "rape."

When I wrote, "Give him some prison time with guys who haven’t seen a woman in a while, and let’s see how funny he thinks his joke on his neighbor is then," I wasn't suggesting that he should be "raped." I was thinking, however, that he'd learn what it's like to be harassed and propositioned - then maybe he'd find out that it's not funny.

Because that's exactly what he did to his neighbor: He created a situation in which she was harassed and propositioned - at her own home. Come to think of it, now that you mention it, she's lucky she wasn't raped.
