When the DirecTV guy was told he'd need to mount a pole, this wasn't what he had in mind.

Link farked, so I can't tell what the problem is. I've had DirecTV for 10 years, and I've been pleased so far.  It goes out before storms start for about a minute, but then it comes back on again.  Hell, we watched TV all through Hurricane Irene while it was happening, and the power was knocked out for 13 days.  Just fired up the generator and for a good 18 hours of solid rain, we never lost the signal.

It's cheaper than Comcast and they give you more DVRs.  I have no complaints.

So the man claimed to be a nudist in his own home and invited the Direct TV guy to also take his clothes off and he's be arrested for a crime?  Seems a bit harsh.

I didn't realize it was illegal to be naked in one's home. I didn't realize it was also illegal to invite others to do so as well.

Being naked in one's own home - not illegal.
Inviting someone into your home - not illegal.
Inviting your guests to be naked - not illegal.
Inviting your guests to come back later for a party - not illegal.

When I cleaned carpets for Sears back in the early 1980's we used to see naked people pretty regularly.  Typically it was naked teenage girls walking around the house.  I cannot tell you how many times I was invited to come back after work for a beer by the lady of the house. They would sometimes add, "it's ok, my husband is out of town".   I can remember a job where we were met at the door by a rather attractive woman wearing nothing but a shear negligee and nothing underneath (we could see everything).  She lead us to the basement to clean the carpet.  It was very dark down there and it took a while for our eyes to adjust.   Once they did, it was a sex dungeon.  There were dozens of whips and restrains hanging on the back wall.  There was a round bed with a velvet bed spread and what looked to be a 16 mm projector and a screen.  Since the 1980's every time I drive by that house, I remember that job.  I can remember a group of gypsies in northern Baltimore who invited us to get undressed and get in the hot tub with them.  We didn't of course.

Lewd conduct is illegal.

I'm just curious what law was actually broken here. Charging a nudist with "lewd conduct" simply for being nekkid inside their own home seems a little over the top. Are the Puritans still running things up there?

No, if it were then most of us would be in jail. Inviting people you pass on street, or the shopgirl at the mall, or your postman as you buy stamps to manipulate your masculinity.... that might be illegal but in your own home asking invited guests to join you in the rumpus room is perfectly fine.

Anderson told the salesman that he was in a "nudist" home, and "made some comments to (the salesman) which included inviting him to take his clothes off" and inviting him back to the house later on "for a party," according to state police.

Like most news stories, there's vital bits of inflammation missing. Such as did the dude open the door while nude exposing himself to the other guy? However
The salesman "explained that he was invited into the home and was confronted by a nude male subject," reading between the lines of a poorly written story it sounds like after the dude came to door he was presented with "HAY THERE SAILOR" naked guy. And not just a come on type thing..but full blown twigs and berries with a open door.

Well the lewd conduct and indecent exposure laws came into play when he exposed himself without the informed consent of the salesman...and the salesman complained to the police. So from that I gather those laws do not end at closed doors of a private home.

Aside from the fact it was a dumb, desperate and douche move.

The salesman came to the man's property uninvited after 7pm and the homeowner was already nude. You come to somebody's property unannounced and after dark and I think you give up the right to be shocked by their appearance.

The way the article explains it, you couldn't see him from the street. The salesmen just saw the guy's arm waving him in, then found out he was naked after he was already inside. My guess is the homeowner was just screwing with the guy for trying to do a sales pitch at dinner time. You hear people all the time talk about answering the door nude when Jehovah's witnesses or mormon missionaries come knocking.

Back in my days of pizza delivery, this came up only rarely. One time some chick answered the door in sheer, see-through nightgown. She acted as if nothing was out of the ordinary, and she didn't indicate i was welcome to come inside, but as I left she shouted "I hope your **** ain't hard!"

That was the good time.

However, a year or so later, I took a delivery to a hotel right next to the airport. I knock, the guy says "one minute! I can't find my clothes!" At which point I was thinking, you're in your own hotel room, how can you not find your clothes? So he says something along the lines of, Uh, i'm sorry to keep you waiting, I'm opening the door now. I figured he meant he finally found a towel or something, but no, he's standing there, twigs and berries and all. He wasn't lewd about it beyond being a 40 year old flasher that looked a lot like Cosmo Kramer. Being a dude in his mid 20s at the time, I didn't exactly freak out or call the cops, but thanks for reading my cool story.

Haters gonna hate. I've had DirecTV for over 10 years and the only time my rates ever went up was when I switched to HD. And contracts? BFD. Everybody's on one for their phone. And here in SoCal we never get extreme weather so outages are simply not a problem.

And DogTV is so much awesome I don't even know where to begin.
