  • “This posting has been deleted by its author.”
    Too bad.

    • Yeah, it sounds like a good deal. I wonder if the note encouraging military and law enforcement was considered discriminatory.

  • Are they allowed to stipulate “seeking mature professional MEN”?

    That seems pretty discriminatory considering the ad isn’t for roommates or subletters.

    • It looks like it is/was at least a partial houseshare — “Shared Basement Washer/Dryer.”

    • seemed more like a M4M ad or, M4LEO ad…lol

    • Really? Seems like people get their feelings hurt so easily these days! Who cares if it’s discriminatory! Every type of person gets discriminated against each and every day.

      • Well, in housing it is illegal to seek only a certain “kind” of tenant . You can express a preference, but you can’t straight up say “no blacks/gays/women/lawyers/whatever”. That may be why the ad was pulled.

  • good deal unless it’s actually a windowless basement.

    the description makes me kind of uncomfortable. but they could just be trying to be sarcastic, hard to say.

  • “Quiet Mature Professional Men” is either a great name for a band or for an album. Which is it?

  • Those in wall heating/cooling things are ridiculously loud and inefficient. I wouldn’t rent it for that reason alone. Besides the fact that I’m not a “quiet mature professional man.”

  • The tone of the whole listing is too fussy. “Email 2 sentence curriculum vitae…”? Oh brother. God forbid any quiet mature professional man should try to slip in a third sentence.
