So long

    Well all, it's been real, but the silliness here has finally gotten to be more than I can stomach. Honestly, I came here looking for fitness and nutrition advice from like minded people, but that seems to be NOT what this site is about at all. And even though I've engaged in some of the more ridiculous forum posts, quite frankly, I've got better things to do than sit in front of a computer. icon_evil.gif

    Thank those of you who have offered great fitness advice, and those of you have been friendly. Thanks to those of you who actually read my profile before contacting me. And for those of you who felt the need to unlock your naked pictures for me without even asking if I wanted to see them...get counseling. Seriously. Life is about a whole hell of a lot more than your cock or what you're doing with it. And no, I wasn't even flattered, but rather found such things vulgar, classless, and utterly repellant. To you I say thank you for reinforcing such negative social stereotypes and proving further that I have no connection to the gay community.

    That being said, cheerio, and I hope you all find whatever it is you're looking for.

    Now, where on earth is that "delete account" link?

    Awww, I really liked all of your posts on here and I really cherished what you brought to the forums.

    I remember when I deleted my profile from the site a while back because of all the stuff that I allowed to get to me. I can understand that it could be bothersome to you, but I know that I've met some really kind-hearted people on here. I can seriously remember getting like 10 e-mails a day asking if I wanted to do some on webcam or asking me to strip for them and take pictures, but I just moved on with my e-life and payed attention to the people who actually wanted to have a conversation with me and share ideas/opinions. It's very sad for you to leave here without me ever really saying that I honestly liked you as a forum poster, so here is my chance!

    Thank you for being you. icon_sad.gif

    Are all of these "So long, farewell" threads the status quo around here, or is this a recent development. Seems like there's at least one a week.

    A leaving type topic gives others a chance to say see ya or express loss.

    Everyone goes through frustration with the site at one point.

    We did a topic like this not long ago and for us, the experience was humbling to say the least.
    A lot of fine men came out wanting us to stay, and you know, they mattered enough that we did.

    Yes, I noticed the OP's rant about people unlocking their private pics for him. Interesting that he's so upset by this when one only needs to delete the email from his inbox. How would he know that cock pics were involved if he didn't look?

    hey unfounded7, there are many men that have private pics that are not racy in the least. We know some of them.



    We're really sorry to see jimbothedevil go! It was suggested to us that just putting your profile on 'hidden' would be better than pulling the plug right away. Taking a break, as it were.

    .but you said, "Interesting that he's so upset by this when one only needs to delete the email from his inbox."


    OK, so you understood his venting. Some one says hey look...so he looks going along with your agreeing that private pics don't mean automatically x rated stuff, and he finds x rated stuff. Can you now see why he vented? icon_wink.gif

    I assume that anyone I've not had a conversation with is unlocking x-rated pics for me. Because I usually look, I know that this isn't always true. But if I were so easily offended, as the OP seemed to be, I would simply delete.

    I'm not saying I don't understand being frustrated. I do. But I see no signifigant difference between this virtual world and the "real" world. You can't escape the ugly side of human nature. Perhaps these "So long, farewell" threads are more about venting than anything else.

    You have a good point in your last line unfounded7, but under the vent is an ache-of-heart or a chill-of-soul that we feel deserves compassion and understanding.

    If there's anything we can say to ease that, we will. It was done for us.

    In fact, if he does return the first thing we're likely to do is buddy-list him right into next week! Clearly, something we should have done before.icon_redface.gif

    I still don't understand how a naked aka x-rated picture of someone could be offensive in any way. I've seen perfectly dressed people who are actually truly offensive on this forum.

    I heart your point, though there are naked pics which make me want to become celibate.

    Well it looks like he adjourned the scene.....

    I kind of agree with Curiousjock above. When I ultimately leave, I'll talk about the positive points of this site, which are many and my reasons for exiting. Maybe the time will just have arrived. Some of these "departure threads" almost smack of "a slap on the way out"....
