Would you like a quote from a recent financial report and news letter about what the message to be carried WAS and IS?
This social newtworkingTHING is NOT a place to LURE (get that-LURE) possible innocents in to a lifestyle or drugs or wrecklessness. Do not doubt that luring can be the persons agenda.
That would be ignorant. Ted Bundy worked a crisis line in Seattle sitting next to a policeman. A thread about swinging IN SF?? That could be found on 1000's sites in SF so who isit that is looking for people who could be high, vunerable, young, hurting or really lost souls needing love as well?
Like using code to post where the heroine or crack is and someone dying?
How bout that 'dosing an animal' thread everyone thought was cool? I am older than dirt as well and this is NOT what GD boards are for.
It is dangerous and predatory and you dew not know who is behind there screen so do I believe in serious blocking---absolutely. And it is not free speech either.There are people TODAY, X-mas that are going to lose a child while they are riding their new bike.
JW's LONG post was too much time to read in what he could have said briefly.
I was with Greenpeace seriously by age 19 because of the GD. I was an activist with RainForest Action Network tabling at shows and actully going there for their rights from petroleum destruction through my 30's and early 40's.
We were healthy and took care of each other. Anytime we saw the sludge that appeard in the early 90's we were aghast. This is not holier than anything.
The country is in the toilet. People are lost, vunerable and sad. Some tour to numb, and will try things they would never try elsewhere. They are preyed upon and tested. A swinger thread is no community I want to be a part of on a Furthur Board if I was 22 now. Use your heads---for some---what is left of them.
I never have believed in 'it is only his/her "on screen ppersona". BS. If you type it, it is IN YOU.
I do not know how far JaugW took things but I told him at the beginning to not hang here much. I guess he thinks he is too old to learn. I have learned 4 lessons since just last night and seek more today. I have no Christams at all but last night delivered lotsa santa stuff somewhere realy important. They were less lonely than I. But i still know what I won't try. Today I may take my kitty on her leash to the woods!
It is NOT ABOUT ALL WELCOMED. Take the toxic, bs to craigslist.
OD's, STD's, death, perm. disabling.....anything can happen when people repond to this BS or acknowlgede it at all.
I believe this and know it to be true.
I sat in on board meets with band members. Do you think Rex would look here and say YEAH---this is THE community!
((((hugs and peace and make change. lotsa change all around you in 2011))))
