The heat has started coming down on Strecker too. At the end of October, he reported problems at Passion's, and comments began rolling in:

Two men finished the last of their beer and wordlessly fired once into his shoulder and then into the skull.

"Making yourself a big target, Dave," wrote John Lehman, whose Facebook profile photo shows a bald, middle-aged Canadian.

"You're making it too hot in certain places, Dave. You gotta be low-key on what you say, do, or stay. My advice is to lay low on the action on what's going on there," added Derrick Tinglin, a young man from Wichita, Kansas.

"With all the goofy, unexplainable things happening in Sosua, Dave, be careful. None of us want to see anything happen to you. We appreciate all of the great updates. Please watch yourself. They maybe try'n to shut you down," Bruce Smith, a member of the Facebook group Black Professionals Network, chimed in.

On October 30, customs officials seized Strecker's cell phone, digital camera, and laptop when he returned to Miami from Sosua. A customs official told him the check was routine and he'd get his devices back within a few days. He's still waiting.

So how is Strecker making his living these days? "I don't have to work," he says with a smile. "I make money just by being me."

Hello.. I am a 15 year old computer hacker. I have recently found a major security flaw in you site that allows xss injection.. I could easily deface your site but I am a white hat hacker. Here is simple proof. Your problem is your search button.


If you search this <script>alert('XSS');</script>

It shows you have an XSS vulnerability on your site.

Well this is probably for the best, Kimber, because you're not going to like next week's feature on Professor Boobs McButtenstein, South Florida's foremost authority on booty shakin'.

It's amazing that you guys can manage to put together a six-page feature on every perverted, sexploitator but not a single article of actual substance. You have lost a reader, I'm surprised I lasted that long. You're nothing more than a trash mag that uses tits and ass to sell their incompetence.
