So long ....

... it's been good to know you. I think the time to quit has come. Over the past four - five months I've had less and less desire to look at porn and the straw that finally broke the camel's back was a very recent subscription to one of my favorite sites where I downloaded tons of videos in order to get caught up, but when I started to watch them on TV, I could only think that I was wasting my time; time that could have been spent reading a book.

I don't blame anything but my age and am glad that, as a huge compensation, I rediscovered my love of reading! Mine would have been a pretty empty life otherwise because I had also mostly given up on TV, except for a handful of shows.

As I have let you know, through some of my posts, I am pretty well house-bound, so the loss of libido could have been catastrophic and I mourned it for a long time until .. see rediscovered love of reading.

I have stuck with this forum and the polls because I have been reluctant to give up the cyber friends I have made over the years but feel that in a porn forum I now have nothing to contribute since the subjects that interest(ed) me are very rarely mentioned.

To all my good cyber friends: I wish you all the best and shall miss you greatly because you have been part of my daily life for so long.

To Rick, my enthusiastic thanks for creating this site, especially this forum, and I am sure your plans for the future will be highly successful.

To Khan, thanks for always being there for us and especially for your help in keeping this forum as civilized as it is. This is no small feat. I have been a member of news groups and forums for 21 years and always moved on because of testosterone laden males who made it their life's goal to try to out-insult (flame) each other.

So, a fond thanks PU participants and Khan for showing more class than is often found in non-porn oriented groups. I am leaving with fond memories this time. Three cheers for PU and all this site has meant to me over the years!

I seem to recall (correct me if I'm wrong) that you talked about this a few months ago. If it is for good then I say "All the best to you" and note that you will be greatly missed around here as one of our best contributors. My spidey senses tell me that you just need some time away like some of us have taken from time to time. Hopefully we'll see you again in the upcoming incarnation of PU. Meanwhile, keep on reading

^ I thought it was Cybertoad who tried to make the break.

Disappointed Messmer didn't stick around to let us talk him out of leaving. As you often see, we don't always talk porn. If it ain't grits, it must be a Yankee.

If you're going to lay her head over the pool table and fuck her throat, get your fucking hand off her throat!

I knew this was coming. I could see it in your recent threads and read the inevitable coming from your diminishing interest I observed through your postings.
And there's always a morbid feeling that something you really value is about to become only a memory.

Farewell, my friend, although sadden, I couldn't agree with you more in your closing remarks and course of action.
Even though the over used phrase: "you'll be missed" might come off as somewhat trite, I can think of nothing else that better fits the bill ..... good luck.

PS ....
As you ride off into the sunset, think about that extra hardship you're laying on what few old timers left to fight our war on wayward porn.

Also .... I might announce there is one person who'll likely be downright grateful and gloriously happy to see you leave this site.

We can always hope, right?

Just to clarify, I took two disabled accounts about 6 month each. About 2 months ago I did take a 3 week hayatiss why I thought over PU's future. I came back about two years ago after my last 6 months.
I think as the years add up we change and taste change I once thought porn was just a way to jerk off to new material. I then found a hobby in it and that is where I am and have been a few years now. Sure the monkey gets a work out on occasion,but I find more interest in editing and making pictures look better then the photographers did on them.

Messmer, I think we were around the same age, a break is good at times trust me, the younger you are the more that does not make sense. But the older ones may get what I say. You can not let porn be your life, but you can enjoy it and let it be part like a sports game, having a beer or something you enjoy. Not obsess with.
At least for me I can view videos and just enjoy it and go do something else.
I will miss you my friend, you were a member I looked up to and hope to see you soon.

For the record, not leaving. I want to give the new PU a chance. I made that call already and I think being here awhile me staying on board may help the transfer. I couldn't leave and let my friends hang for now.
Not saying Messmer did that, but I know I will miss what stability I saw in him on this site. But I will stay all the same.

Take care bro there will always be a place for you at PU for that I have no doubt.

Sad to see you go, messmer.

Hope you're still lurking around here, and if you are, that you read this and know you'll be missed.

While I occasionally tire of porn (usually when I'm asleep) I certainly don't tire of forums like this, even if they're ostensibly about porn, because there are decent members and webmasters and plenty of talk about things other than porn use.

Conversely, even after this site and its forum move on, and even long after all this changes from what we now understand as the Internet, I'll still be a porn user! And if worse came to worse, and porn somehow disappeared...screw it, I would make my own!

You're not getting away that easily!

Plus, I always thought you'd leave in a blaze of glory, like that NASA frog caught on camera did. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

It's sad to see old friends leave but I can appreciate if not wholly understand the reasons behind it. I really hope to see you come back if only to know what you are doing and talk about other stuff than porn. I can't help but feel that all the old guard is slowly disappearing and I must confess to feeling that my time is also coming to an end.

Writing new reviews that will be gone in the not so distant future seem rather pointless so I have to debate with myself each time if I even bother writing one. I still do but it's getting harder to care. There is so little porn being made (that's before the moratorium) and most of it is stuff that I don't care for that I am slowly running out of sites to join and the ones that I used to enjoy just aren't as good.

I salute you messmer and I want to thank you for all the things you did for PU and I wish you the best. I do hope you will let us know how you are doing. You join the long list of brothers who have fallen into the void or those who so rarely visit like roseman, snowdude, ace of aces, Gcode. asmith12, atrapat, badandy400, weewillywinky, toadsith and I could go on but I'm getting depressed. Long live the Brown Coats.

Don't give up Pat, I think many share what you have said.
Funny Messmer leaves and I could not have said better what the severe impact of changes are to the site as they are.
I wonder if Rick will read this and realize the heart felt impact that changes are doing to the members,not just at a simple financial level but they are giving up on PU as well and that is very sad.
I hope we do not lose you too Pat, you and Messmer joined a few months before I am . I feel some responsibility sticking it out. I am hopeful to see many at the end. Whether I will be there at the renew is to be seen. But sticking it out til the end if at all possible.

^Mind you my leaving or staying has absolutely nothing to do with the changes at TBP/PU. It sort of sucks about the reviews I'm currently planning to do and those I recently did will not transition to the new sites but that's life and I can live with it. No my reason has a lot to do with the current state of the porn industry and the total lack of care given to the people in it and the product being put out. There is also the real fact that so many of our original friends at PU are now gone and I'm starting to feel the loss. We still have some great members but it's sad to see that those that were there in the beginning aren't there anymore. Long live the Brown Coats.

I hear ya, the list you made and many more are missed, I also understand the state of things.
It makes me sad too Pat not sure that helps, but my outspoken manner on many changes etc, is because I think we lost allot how much more before we are out to pasture was how I felt. Right now there are maybe 8-10 left of people I know on here sad state for sure. I really want to stay around but I need back up too Messmer leaving was a huge punch to the gut. Still reeling from that I was like WOW and still am.
Some tuff is just "FUBAR" Fucked up beyond recognition.
and sucks. Will really miss Messmer hope he comes back.

Messmer, I hope you reconsider. This forum is about a lot more than just porn and for that reason alone you should keep your membership and check in once in a while to say hello.

I agree that this is probably the biggest drawback to the pending new sites, but Rick has committed to at least keeping the links around for a while so we won't lose all the useful information.

I posed a question to Rick in another thread (but it was buried in there so he may have missed it) about whether we as individual users could be permitted to migrate our own reviews onto the new site, assuming that they'd need some tweaking to meet the new format. I could see allowing this for more recent reviews (maybe in the past year) as it would allow the new sites to get up to speed sooner. I can also see not allowing it for the older reviews as the information may not be valid any longer. It might also start skewing the membership rank right out of the gate which also might not be a good idea.

My fingers are crossed, and I plan to hang around as long as they'll have me.

Hey Messmer if you pop back in, hope you know you are not alone in all this. It all I can do to stay around, just does not feel like home. It feels like a car parked on the side of the road outta gas and with a flat tire. And no tow truck or gas station for a hundred miles.
I keep posting I am sticking around,

Is that to convince my self to stay or others ?

Hmmmm.

Damn, not around for a couple of weeks and messmer and CT quit. Sorry to see you guys go, hope you'll be back sometime. I rarely talk about porn on the forum, but still enjoy reading stuff other people are writing, so perhaps stick around just for that!? Bunny Lebowski: I'll suck your cock for a thousand dollars.
