Howard announced a staff-wide Gay Dating Site Test, explaining that Sal had posted the staff’s photos on an Australian gay dating site. Sal then came in with the results–which staffers were cruised with views, emails or otherwise (the site allows users to “nudge”, “wink” or “blow a kiss” at men they find attractive). Richard, Ronnie, JD and Jon Hein all registered zero views, winks or emails. Fred got 1 view, zero winks and 1 email. (The email read, in full: “Hey.”) Benjy: 1 view, 1 email (“Hi.”) and someone blew him a kiss. Sal registered 1 view and 1 email that read: “Hi. Cheers, my mate.” Gary was more popular, getting 2 views, a wink and 1 email: “Hi, how are you?” Steve Brandano fared slightly better, earning 2 views and no winks but 1 very interesting email–the only one from a minor. “Hey I’m actually 16. I like older guys and I think you are really cute 😉 I’m looking for a fun and serious relationship.” Jon Leiberman was the most popular, registering 4 views, one wink and 1 email: “Hey I am in Sydney. Hello.” Howard, like most of the staff, got zero views, zero winks, and zero emails. (Sal promised to leave the profiles up for another six months and compile an update this summer.)
