This article is from the Internet Personals: Advice for Gay Men FAQ, by Fred Young firstname.lastname@example.org and Dean Esmay email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
Some people post ads looking for sex, extra-marital affairs, or
pornographic e-mail. If that's what you're looking for, that's
your business, but I have no advice for you other than "be
careful," especially protecting yourself from sexually transmitted
diseases. However, the fact is that there are tons of people who
are looking for much more than that. It is for those of us who
are looking for something more meaningful that this FAQ is
dedicated. Don't let all the sex ads fool you; such people aren't
really the majority of Internet personals users, though sometimes it
may appear that way.
