    So, me being new to the gay world, I wonder If the men on RJ are the best bunch. Given that, most members here have stable jobs, few have expensive interests, many can understand fine literature and have sense of humor. Members are on fit side physically, and educated about STDs. Or are we missing out on "A" class gays? What do you guys think?

    Edit: So it's pretty apparent that people want "chat" feature on this site. I mean it would make the communication much easier among member, who are buddies and have hots for each other. Admin, something to consider about on next team meeting.

    quite honestly, this is one of the best forums out there for gay men. there's a lot of useful information here from really smart, educated guys. trolls aside (because there are trolls on every single internet forum out there), this is a great place to chat with other dudes who like dudes. there used to be an actual chat function, which was great...was sad to see it go.

    A couple of years ago I would have said yes without hesitation. I think it is still a great community, but it's just not the same as it once was.

    A lot of good people gone.

    I was in another forum before RJ. People complain in here but they have no idea. This other place crowded with younger gays, most of them average looking twinks or skinny/fat nerds, all very "academic", killed to look smart, and lots of angry fems.

    I remember I made a couple threads and they all jumped on me, hating my views and trying to impose theirs, I was like WTF is this shit? No wonder that place is diying with so many nasty people inside. When I got sick of them I searched for some other gay forum and found RJ and created my old account, and made the same threads I did on the other forum just to see what happened. To my surprise most of you agreed with me and I finally felt I found my place *shreds tear*. So yeah this is definitely a good place.

    ikilledcaptainplanet saidone word: no. don't get me wrong now, there's a lot of good people on this forum, there's cool guys in here, made some friends here and etc, but to be honest, i think that this place could be a bit more welcoming to newbies and you guys should at least be more accepting of others. it shouldn't be to the point where people are scared to post or say something because a few folks simply want to control the board.

    i've been to other places that were just as BAD but at least, they didn't run members out over some petty shit such as a difference in opinion.


    We aren't accepting of psychos who make threats of violence, sorry

    ROFL, you edited your post from no. TBH I was initially surprised, looking at the length of your other posts. This is more like it.

    I don't come here on a daily basis but i think for the most part, the forums are pretty good. Lots of different kinds of people and yeah, aside from trolls, it's cool to share thoughts, get to know people, and have friendly debates (Though these can go either way).

    I'm sure you'll do just fine here. icon_smile.gif

    This is a cool place. Nice guys. Hot guys. Funny guys. Fights break out now and then. Good conversations. Kind of like a gay version of Cheers.

    RJ is a reasonable-natured paradise compared to the disgraceful, crybaby, bullying, psychotic, crybaby, snobbishly, jaw-droppingly arrogant Internet sewer of the gay community, Datalounge.

    Lots of great folks on this site. On the one hand, I really enjoy interacting with guys from all over the world. On the other hand I'm frustrated by the very fact that you're all so far away geographically.
    As for some of the posts that seem really petty, mean-spirited and ill informed, I just try not to engage with them.

    Agreed - many good guys have left. Removing the chat function seemed to be a sign that things were going downhill. Still potential here, but lately it feel like this site in on the downward slide...

    Yes, I have made friends on here who are better than my real life friends. I have even vacationed with some (just as friends). I'm so gratefully to rj to bring such amazing people in my life

    It's still got a lot of potential, but it can't get away without an upgrade for too many more years. Somebody's going to create a RJ 2.0 site if RJ doesn't do it itself.
    I told you to make it like 8 months ago lol

    This.

    Before, I wouldn't think that one could make friends in this sort of "cyber environment". That it wasn't real. It was pathetic and weird....now I'm terrified that other people feel this way when speaking to me about me. That when I speak to them, I'm not real. I don't care. I'm just this guy online who doesn't matter.

    You matter. Oh so very deeply. The world hasn't been the same since you entered it.

    Come now, just because you are aging does not mean you can't figure this one out. I'll allow you a minute instead of the usual thirty seconds.
