I know I am 6 months late on this reply, but was perusing and thought I would interject on the DLMs. Claypaws pretty much hit the nail on the head with our DLM procedure. We no longer prohibit DLMs and encourage the use if used responsibly. If you follow the recommendations laid out by Claypaws you will not have any problem using DLMs with our site. The only time you will run into issues if you abuse them and try to download with too many simultaneous connections.
Though I personally have no moral qualms about recreational drug use. I have little interest in it myself - partially due to the potential physical dangers they present and partially due to the cultural / legal dangers the present - but I don't have any objections to people using them in a moderate fashion (moderate all things to moderation). Excessive use of just about anything will get one into trouble.
I think perhaps only excessive use of rationalism won't get someone into trouble. It might get you labeled as a Sociopath, but you probably wouldn't be locked up, as you wouldn't get caught doing anything illegal if your excessive rationalistic approach is done accurately (this is not to say you wouldn't do anything illegal).
"Turning morality into law merely creates criminals."
That was well said. I'd be willing to sacrifice any future Untouchables type tv series or movies, or Ken Burns documentaries, for that matter, just to let ordinary people use their own discretion regarding dope, booze, and pussy-by-the-hour.
But I guess that's the big difference that lawmakers see between Main St and Wall St. The Main Streeters get regulated plenty, while the Wall Streeters now get away with fraud because, hey, those Main St folks will pony up for their bailout, right?
Wilmington, Delaware experienced the loss of many jobs after World War II, mostly due to it becoming less utilized as a shipping location. To address this matter, the state legislators sought a way to bring new business into the state, starting in the late 1970s. Led primarily by the Governor Pierre DuPont, in the early 1980s, Delaware attempted to lure large banks away from New York and other large financial companies by dramatically redrafting tax laws for banking industries. Laws also changed to allow banks to charge any interest they wished on credit cards.
Several banks, among them Bank of America and Chase, were inspired by Wilmington’s flexible laws to relocate at least their credit card companies to Wilmington. The ability to charge more interest meant that they could offer credit to less credit-worthy customers. Though big banks moved their credit card companies, the response was even greater than DuPont at first estimated. Many smaller banks also set up shop in Wilmington, to take advantage of being able to charge much higher interest rates, while paying lower taxes on their profits.
Since the enactment of liberal interest rate laws and low taxes, Wilmington has become one of the most attractive cities in the US to set up credit card companies. Other states and cities may have caps on interest charged, and in fact the US congress has even attempted to create lower interest rates, and cap fees and interest. This strategy has not worked, and Congress’ response was lukewarm at best, placing the interest cap at no more than 30%.
In 1988, laws in Delaware protecting credit card companies were made even stronger. During a period where hostile takeovers were becoming standard, Delaware changed its laws to make sure that most Delaware companies would not be subject to this process. The new laws meant any one attempting to take over a company would have to own 85% of its stock, or with a majority of stock holding would have to wait three years before initiating takeover proceedings. Companies stationed in Delaware were thus better protected than in other states, strengthening the position of any bank or credit card companies that created their charters within the state.
Today, there are several major credit card companies stationed in Wilmington. These include Bank of America, Chase, Barclays (which used to be Juniper), and ING Direct. A number of smaller credit card companies also have their home base in Delaware. What this means for the consumer, especially if you’re sifting through a lot of credit card offers, is that you’ll find numerous ones coming from Delaware. You may pay higher interest rates, especially if your credit is not solid. With the luxury of good credit, you may want to shop around for the best credit card offers, especially those from states with laws less likely to favor the credit card industry.
I think you gave some convincing arguments for the legal and financial reasons for being headquartered in the U.S.
I dimly remember that years ago, credit card companies and other corporations would be incorporated in Delaware (in the US), for financial and legal reasons, because Delaware had laws more favorable to business than most other states. Even though those corporations did little business in Delaware.
Pretty much as Claypaws said - compared to other expenses that could be cut back on - or other forms of entertainment - joining a site I like is relatively frugal so it' hasn't affected me that much. That said, other aspects of life have kept me busy so I have been joining less sites than last year...
Well I'm with you there Claypaws when it comes to the 10% part but still based on performance. Just cause it's a niche, doesn't mean they all perform the same. But then most here know my perverted desire to see a good throat job. Since I've said that it takes a certain type of skill to perform that, rather than say an anal or straight sex act, then maybe it would be easier for me to go with the face, or body shape, or other factor. But when you limit the field as to what it is that rocks your socks off then performance is always going to win me over.
I find it even more fun to follow actors' dialogue when their first language isn't English and they're trying to deliver those riveting monologues we're so used to hearing in porn.
Unfortunately, I sometimes get the impression that some girls are not totally into it when they can barely even proposition their onscreen partner for some good ol' buttfuckin' because the language--never mind the guy's penis--is too much to handle.
Ya know, I'm new at reviewing sites, at least at writing down my reviews. Been reviewing in my head for ages. I will try to watch for internal inconsistencies like this more carefully in the future. I agree "many" would probably have been a better choice of words.
Anyway I was more interested in the pissing than the toys. Have always liked watching girls pee. Don't know why, and have long since given up on trying to figure it out.
Thanks for your comments, I will try to improve my internal consistancies.
Very true this is, its annoying why they can't all be called by one model name and although not their real name as I can understand them not using that but it would save the headache of finding out other things a model has done and where you'd seen them before.
Agree also on the brand indentity and for a smaller site you have to have something that will give you an edge and get people to join, xart have come a long way and they seem to have a great community of fans on the site that do vote and comment, hope other sites could learn lots from these guys in how to run a smaller niched site.
Yeah I think I could of worded that better, I know lots of the girls from other sites but theres a few I didn't recognize though, its the amount of good looking girls all in one place I like about this site. They have a good model directory with a chosen image of the girl where you can see her face so you know if she will be what you want to see more of.
I was surprised to see those Girls 18 sites back up again. I took a 12 month membership to G18 Spot back in 2010 which was the mothership of all the Girls 18 sites but they all disappeared offline with 6 months of my membership still remaining and never came back. Luckily I'd already downloaded all the sites so I was only missing out on any future updates that may or may not have come along. And yes that watermark was damn awful!! Another site that slapped the watermark right in the middle was the Little Lupe site and other sites in that associated network, although it was just a horizantal watermark and not a great big circular thing like the girls18 one.
I didn't have winzip and looked into it but from what I can see they want about £25 for that programme so I went with your second suggestion the 7zip. Got it installed and working fine so problem solved, thanks very much for the advice. I'm also finding the 7zip is a lot faster than the windows default extraction tool so its going to save me a lot of time as well.
Thanks for the tip Claypaws, you certainly have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the technical stuff. I'll take a look this evening after work to see if I can figure out how to follow your advice. Thanks for the feedback.
I started looking at nude magazines in the 1960s and 1970s, first with Playboy, then with Penthouse. Obviously the pictures were paramount. But the accompanying personal stories made the models more real and meaningful, even if the "facts" were sometimes doctored.
Excellent point about sets being released over the course of years. Sometimes you can pinpoint the date of a shoot by body modification - for instance, Kate of Kate's Playground, had a piercing in her back that became infected, had to be removed and she had a small, but easily visible, scar there after the piercing was removed. So the "before" and "after" were easy to identify, but sets with the piercing were released, mixed with post-piercing sets, over a long period of time.
I was merely trying to make a comment (and joke) that a few models barely seem to age over a period of 5 years or more. Most models do age quite noticeably once they are no longer teenagers.
But your explanation of a photographer shooting multiple sets of a particular model and then those sets being posted over a long period of time seems reasonable.
Occasionally I will find a new set of a model I like, and realize it was photographed years ago, because the model appears so much like she did when she was just starting out. The posting date of the set might be recent, but the set was photographed much earlier. That is different from when a site re-dates a set because they are trying to show they are posting new content, which is a lie.
When sites give a content date, that should normally mean the date the content was first posted at that site.
But even here, it's not always simple. Because some sites, when they give an updated version of some content, because it's in higher resolution or some other form of improved version, will re-date that content to the date it's currently posted.
I feel like a dog chasing its own tail.
I admire your way with words. Clear and to the point.
