All Good Things Must End !

Well,
I think, I will be calling myself a liar on this, one. I am closing my account and getting away from what I see as a destructive interaction for now just not good for me or a good way to spend my time. I read Messmers out going and feel very much the same way . Things are not the same around here, not for me. I try and be supportive and honest but seems that is not what is needed for this group as the dynamics have changed over who we are to each other.
I will drop on by when the new site is up and running, see what it looks like, but unsure I will join back up, This whole situation has left a bad taste in it. For no blame to anyone, but I have seen more personal attacks and spiteful notes between members since earlier this year then I ever saw in all the years here. Thatís not the site I joined. I do not feel I belong here any longer.

Many of my long time friends have left and never returned, I look at the list of Forum participants and many are long gone. Guess I can put myself on that list. It wonít matter for the site will be torn down and the memories that were will become dust in the electronic world, with the delete of a folder in a distant server this and everything will be gone even this posting very soon.
I go by my user name in site forums perhaps I will run across some of you, I never posted much except here. Donít post elsehwhere much either. This was home!

GreyMane , I hope your health gets better, I worry about you my friend I will pray your health improves. To all my other friends, what great conversations we all had and you guys are amazing at reviews. I learned allot from many of you about the industry and much more.
Have fun everyone, may your wide screens be filled with lovely ladies !
Be well !

I don't mind being the first to comment. It was inevitable, but will give you a break, time to reflect, and enable you to focus more on the positive things. I think taking a break, even from a hobby, is good, because even hobbies can become boring and leave you feeling jaded. Your contributions will be missed.

I don't see many personal attacks or spiteful attacks on here, just disagreements. It is okay to disagree, and this is one of the most civilized places to do that.

Maybe I was wrong and you're not angry, just despairing and fed up. Time to take a break, then come back when you feel like it. Edited on Sep 25, 2013, 11:49am

Sorry to see you go Cybertoad. Don't know what to say that might make you stay so I'll just add that I hope to see you in the next PU incarnation.

I've been here for a while, but recently have become more active in adding my two worth. Now everyone is bailing out.
I have gone through so many changes in my lifestyle that a website changing itself is not much of a deal for me. I only did one review and that website has changed since then, so if the review disappears it is probably for the best. I'm here to so socialize. I found this to be a very nice group to hang out with. Much of the time I simply read the threads and enjoyed the banter, but as I said I have been joining in more often.
I have kept away from the discussions on the site change, because it won't effect me. I just feel people are rushing away without even seeing how this whole thing will go down.
I want to hear the insights about the direction porn is taking, the latest model and how cute she is , or the sharing of views of a new site that someone has just discovered. I have not come across another forum where we can discuss these porn interests this freely.

Take care Cybertoad. I would rather you stay. Your friendly and honest voice made this a pleasant place to visit. I aim to misbehave

This is not good news.

Sorry to see you go, my friend.

I hope you will at least put in an appearance at the new venue when it materialises.

I'm sorry to see him go, but he'll be back. I'm not sure what he means by "destructive interaction," it's just a forum, but as forums go, it's as good as any I've seen. It's always sad to see the original members leave but we've held on to most of them. There's a lot of good stuff here, and the core will transfer to the new place and evolve. I'm surprised how much of this free evening I have devoted to PU. Time to get back to some more TV and chill out. Edited on Sep 25, 2013, 05:51pm

Thanks, CT, for your kind words. Further, I'm deeply touched that your concern for my deteriorating health is such that I have a place in your prayers. I can't think of anything one could possibly do to trump that level of compassion for his fellow man.

I don't think I have to go into a long dissertation about my feelings concerning this precipitous choice you've now made concerning your departure from our PU family.
I think you already know. so I won't belabor the gamut of this setback.

The bonds we build here at Porn Users are so tightly knitted I'd say it's hard for anyone to really adequately process it's magnitude ... or should we care, because our colloquial exchanges on erotic fare and assorted babe delights are unmatched anywhere on the web.
"Well. damned, Graymane, how would you know that?"
I know because I've been here closing in on four years and I'm old and wise enough to embrace the validity of every word coming our of said proclamation ... An for anybody who would argue otherwise are up against a wall of futility.

How, Cybertoad, despite the vague discontent, and unnecessary panic that prevails, that you can walk away from this attentive attachment, respect, and among other things the vintage brotherhood you've garnered here, is something I struggle to fathom.

Naturally I'm very sad to see you go. And it goes without saying I'll miss your presence, and among other things the joy I get when I see a new thread from you popping on the screen. Its not gonna be the same being unable to relish reading all the good stuff you toss our way.

But, in conclusion, I have to say also I'm gravely disappointed in you for making this hasty decision. You're not being fair to yourself or to us.
Rick and Khan will drive right over this loss, maybe glancing back, but because they have an obligation to themselves and a destination to better their investment, as well as a goal for a more secure future, I applaud their fortitude
You say you're a businessman. I accept the premise You're smart and adapt at making profitable decisions.
But I don't think you're gonna step away from a plum deal simply because you have to brush over a few toe-tops to get there.

Rick and company, just like us, must and should look out for themselves when survival is at stake.
with due credit and full respect to Rick, my judgment speaks loud and clear that we should be damned grateful that he isn't closing the door in our collective faces
.

Somebody do something with this soapbox, please

I'm starting to dread coming here because all I'm seeing are announcements from long time members that they are disabling their account and leaving. I hope this is not going to become a trend because I really don't want to be the last one to leave. Long live the Brown Coats.

Very well put. If I were an internet kid I would have simply put ^ ^ +1, but us older people like to use letters and words. It's almost revolutionary nowadays.

Don't worry, you wont be. Most of the members here aren't leaving because there's no reason to. Far from it, I consider Rick deserves some bloody support and respect for what he has said. Of course, I share Cybertoad's reservations as he knows what he is talking about, and I always listen to what he has to say, but we gotta give Rick the benefit of the doubt, because of what he has achieved thus far. You have to give it a chance, in fact you have to give it quite a bit of time, because Rick didn't have to tell us anything, he could have just changed it all in a fait accompli.

Sorry to see you go. Like in messmer's case, sorry you felt you needed to disable your account when you wanted to step away. Know I'll be happy to reactivate your account should you ever change your mind. It goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that your contributions here will be sorely missed.

We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.

Take care of yourself.

PS.
Oh, and not to nit-pick but ...

I've read memmer's post (a number of times actually) and no-where in it does he blame his leaving on things not being the same around here. What he did say was, "I don't blame anything but my age ..." Senior Administrator

Another one bites the dust!? Sorry to see you go, Cybertoad.

I'll take a stand here among this negative talk and after two prominent members disabling their accounts and say I am not disabling my account, leaving PU, or getting tired of porn (even if it gets tired of me! ). Even if just due to sheer laziness on my part, I see no reason to disable my account here at PU, at least not until well into the newer site next year, and even then I'm not much interested in disabling my account anytime soon. Furthermore I'm not giving up on porn, whether it be to the economy or puritanical fascists, or as Charlton Heston once said, "From my cold dead hands!" I'm not going down without a fight!

It was good having you as a member, Cybertoad! Lurk around here if you must--I at least hope that's what you're doing--but come back when the newer site and its forum are up and running.

To Cybertoad and a few others have who said goodbyes, I want to both thank you for everything you've contributed. Your contributions have helped guide and inform 1,000's of others like yourself. You all deserve a lot of credit.

Regardless of why your saying your goodbyes, it'll be my personal mission to renew that passion. The community will flourish like never before, this I promise. It's sad to see the discussions of a brighter future have possibly tarnished or diluted how we perceive things now.

For the others who are sticking around with anticipation, you will be the first to view the site before the general public. In fact, there's a good chance the site will be private for at least a full month before the general public gets access. You will set the tone, and help guide us forward.

Good news guys and near-guys .....
Cybertoad will live on after all, in the person of Albert Finstein, noted Celebrity impersonator whose posts will come to us in live text messages ...(that is when and if he can keep his teen age daughter away from using it)
Finstine, known for his brilliance, has hinted he'll use the new name used as "ToadCyber (to throw off hackers and Trogons..... as well as their horses) ..... Which, BTW, ain't as dumb as people think.
Finstine's avatars will be (as agreed upon) replaced often to protect the innocent.
"News Flash" .....it is reported the real CyberToad is going to settle the unauthorized theft of his name by tracking down Finstine and kicking his ass.
Foxy News promises to be on the scene to video the happenings... so stay tuned.
Just in. Foxy News here......"Finstine pleads to The Real CT he'll rescind his plan to vote Republican if the real CT promises to spare his ass.
Speaking of Foxy News, and unconfirmed report has emerged stating they've (Foxy) rejected an offer to use a commercial promoting a popular Porn site. Afterwards, Foxy News is being charged by said porn site with capitalizing on the porn site's proposal using extortion .... the law: "Opportunistic #4005 shows the ink still wet From Republican's dash to get the law on the books in time to favor Foxy News ... now why would they do that?

I'm outta here

^I don't know if one of the deciding factors in why some long time members left was a lack of new blood but I know that it will be one of the reasons why I choose to leave.

Many (not to say most) of the people I used to interact on a regular basis have been gone for a long time now or they so seldom participate that it's almost the same. I'm one of the few from the early beginning who still more or less active and even I find it hard to come on here. I hope you enjoy your time in the forum and hopefully yopu offer some great comments that we can all add to. Long live the Brown Coats.
