Gay dating groups
I installed the app, created an account, and saw to my great surprise that there were absolutely no users or activity of any kind on the Hunters network.

You can buy 5,000 for 0, but you'd probably prefer to start smaller, maybe for 100.
Back during the Sochi Olympics, Russia banned a gay dating app called Hunters, something of a Russian response to Grindr.You are free to search for other members who match the characteristics you're filtering for, whether it's distance, height, weight, and so on.The controversial move was part of the country's infamous crackdown on ''gay propaganda'' due to a law that forbids anyone advocating for nontraditional relationships, purportedly for the safety of children.After all, this app gives you the distance (down to the meter) of where young men might find other young men for a romantic rendezvous. I was curious what it was like to use the app in densely populated Moscow, the country's biggest city boasting some 12 million people.
Gay men were looking for other gay men all over Russia's (now-properly geolocated) capital city.
Hunters' title screen greets you with the image of a man in a snazzy suit with the head of a multi-point buck. ''Get ready to hunt.'' () In keeping with the hunting theme, the in-app currency (buyable with real-world currency, of course) is called ''bullets.'' Bullets unlock various premium features inside of Hunters.
