DirtyPhoneBook.com is a new Web site that allows people to anonymously post comments on 10 digit phone numbers.
As anyone who has taken Chatroulette’s world tour of genitals can imagine, DirtyPhoneBook is full of vile stuff.
Amid the rare business review or personal compliment, we found personal takedowns, reviews of prostitutes, and a whole lot of racially-charged anger.
Here’s a sampling of comments with phone numbers redacted:
- “Great JEW. Got me a great deal. Hard to get in touch with.”
- “Gora [Redacted]. Piece of f—ing s— dumb a——-. Stay away from this f—er.”
- “Asian whore house in manhattan. Constantly moves locations. It’s hit or miss when it comes to quality.”
It’s all very bizarre and mildly terrifying.
We can’t image a brand manager who would touch the stuff, but the people who run DirtyPhoneBook can. According to the site’s “Advertise” page, there is a “minimum advertising budget of $100,000 per campaign.”
Get in while you can, Procter & Gamble!
Strangest of all, however, is “The story of DirtyPhoneBook.com – How it all started!!!” posted on the site’s “About” page. Read:
DirtyPhoneBook.com was created by three very unusual people. A stripper by the name of Bambi came up with an original idea of organising a social network according to telephone numbers. While dancing at a high end Las Vegas strip club she met Joe, a degenerate gambler. One night, Joe hit big playing craps at Wynn. Rather than take his winnings and go home, Joe decided to hit the strip club. At the strip club Joe went all out, spending hours with Bambi in the VIP room. While dancing for Joe, Bambi had one two many drinks and told him about her idea. Joe was so impressed with the idea that he immediately called his friend Boris, who was a washed up Las Vegas comedian. Within an hour, the three of them were sitting in a strip club talking about their newly formed partnership.
It took less than a week to find all major participants. The website developer was a regular at the club, in love with Bambi and would do anything for her. The “house mum” had a daughter who was going to school to be a graphic designer. Joe reached out to his gambling buddies to put up the start up cash. The original website content was written by Boris. Less than a month later Bambi, Joe and Boris were ready to launch their website.”
