    I've found another forum to hang out in. Not saying where publicly, because I don't want the Evil Twins following me there, or any of the other trolls either for that matter. Seems much nicer over there; people actually talk about stuff.

    I'm leaving my profile up for a day or so. If anyone wants to know where this forum is, send me a message.

    Well I'm sorry to hear this Mr. Shark. I certainly understand the motivation. But you're an icon here, a bit of a legend in your own right. You will be missed! icon_neutral.gif

    They target me all the time. I asked Scruffy to lay off me in an email, admitting that I was more upset by some of what they said than I'd let on in public, and he said that he was just joking in his posts and that he doesn't even agree with Shortbut. He was nice about it and I appreciated his candor, however now I just take his antagonism as someone on the other end of a debate, and I don't take it personally.

    I can understand how Sharky feels, though. Moreover I'm rethinking the impact of cruelty on the internet in the wake of this weekend's mass shooting, after reading that the killer was a forum poster on bodybuilder.com, where hatred against women is a common theme.... Unfortunately, I think admin has no clue which side to take and is likely to ban the nice guys and let the vicious cretins take over.

    They really do despise fems and anything related to femininity. It's pretty sad. I have both of them on my ignore list. This whole anti-women and anti-femininity shit is getting old.

    Look we have a free forum with great people so why cant we all appreciate what we have on offer, this site is a lifeline to alot of gay men and means alot, whether that is a laughable thing or not, some people cant handle real life and here is a fantastic website to help people and lets be honest it is great that gay men and health are being mixed !!

    Sharkie will be missed, but his departure is understandable. I'm not a frequent poster here, but I visit the site less and less, as more of the other long-time members post less frequently. Thankfully, a lot of hot pics still get posted here, which makes for a diversion.

    I never understand when people say this. If we find something better, should we not go to that other site and just accept the conditions here because it's "free?" This, like any other free sites, depends on us. They make their money through advertising based on our views and visits, advertising that often if we click on it will then follow us around the internet. Really, we are the ones that the purse strings and so there is nothing wrong with us expecting something more, especially since we know there was a time when it was something better.
