I support his decision. He has a point and, more importantly, he has the right.

This whole attitude is scary. What if you stand but don't cover your heart? Or if you stand, cover your heart, but don't sing? Aren't we really just playing the game of who-can-make-the-most-outward-show-of-patriotism-without-actually-doing-anything-patriotic game?

Yup. In a nutshell. In The United Snakes, no one gives a fuck if you walk the walk so long as you talk the talk.

Topic Censorship or not?
Posted 11 May 2016 12:49

Confusing censorship with respecting the house rules on a forum hosted by other people is naive. So is confusing censorship with editorial guidelines. One of the biggest problems with internet forums is that there are always a few people who feel it's okay to talk to others in a manner they wouldn't face to face. Everybody loses their cool now and then and end up saying shit they probably shouldn't, but in the long run, it's not that big a deal, and that's not what triggered this thread or its predecessor. It's when a select few fail to respect or apply a few basic rules equally to everyone that's really insulting.

For a long time, Lush has been far above any other site of its kind. The mods are sincere, hardworking, and take a more attentive and personal approach to the members and the stories that are posted here. It's kind of stunning when you think about the effort these volunteers put out. They are the firewall between the members and all manner of human sludge that would otherwise make it onto the homepage and forums. It used to be refreshing. But more and more, the level of conversation that goes on here exists at the level of poodle spooge. In most civilized regions, it would be customary courtesy to set a yippy little poodle outdoors when it can't control a chronic urge to run around humping every leg in the room. Seriously, who the fuck needs poodle spooge on their shoes?

Telling people to basically fuck off and get a thicker skin when they've been singled out deliberately and repeatedly to be insulted just for the sake of insulting them is mystifying and reflects very poorly on the site overall, and in particular those few who actually seem to encourage this stupidity beyond any sense of logic. Terrific. We can block out categories or specific members, but why should anyone have to? Why shouldn't any member have the freedom to enjoy everything the site has to offer? The whole "fuck you we few can say whatever the fuck we please and if you don't like it you're just not adult for the rest of us" school of forum moderating is one of the sorriest things to happen to this site in a long time. If ever.

Locking this thread, just like the last one, wouldn't be censorship, it would be an act of mercy, but I don't expect to be around to see it.

Topic New story category and new forum: an immodest proposal
Posted 20 Apr 2016 17:37

Um..guess I said that out loud, huh?

Topic New story category and new forum: an immodest proposal
Posted 20 Apr 2016 17:15

New story category: it occurred to me that a 'Play For Pay' category might attract some readers and writers. Subjects could include: escourts, mistresses, boy toys, exotic dancers, and any other situation where sex and cash are intermingled.

New forum: What we don't have in the admittedly long list of forums, is one featuring issues involving 'Sex In The News'. Two articles in today's news got me thinking this way. An item about Utah enacting anti-porn laws fit into the 'Adult Swin' category. but another, about the discovery of a DNA link to early sexual activity remains homeless.

While neither suggestion will make or break Lush, the might be worth a thought or two...then again, maybe not.


These are both great suggestions. Would a forum on Sex in the News be called The Pink Tank?

Topic Recreational Drugs
Posted 11 Apr 2016 18:32

Pretty much everything. Repeatedly and in the largest quantities I could possibly consume. I was always a bit freaked about needles, so most of the substances traditionally injected I've ingested in other ways. Pinning down a particular experience or two would be impossible. Plenty of good ones and bad ones, but mostly good. The worst, however, including unpleasant encounters with law enforcement officials, revolved around alcohol.

Topic Which story would you recommend from Lush?

I've read this one last night and it sure worked for me. Highly recommended. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Wow, Ms. Candy. Spank you very much! :)

I agree with this.

Yes, very good idea. I've wondered this myself a few times.

Thank you Frank_Lee, though I thought it was merely expressing the obvious! ;)

lol Probably, but it just seemed like something that needed to be said. Maybe there should be a button people can click that says "I masturbated like a fiend to this story."

Topic February Fast Approaches... Donald Trump is being taken seriously... Should we be TERRIFIED???
Posted 03 Mar 2016 19:43

This is the start of something really ugly in the U.S.

In a nutshell, yes, absolutely. At various times, conditions have existed here that produced people like Edward Hopper, John Coltrane, Kurt Vonnegut, Koko Taylor, Louise Bogan, Jackson Pollock, Frank Zappa, James Wright, Cesar Chavez...and so on. We even enjoyed a brief celebration as heroes, which we've failed to understand is long over with, and don't get why even our friends are scared shitless of the myopic stupidity we're capable of. We almost became a great country, but we missed our shot because, as a country, our most facile ability is in shitting our pants and blaming the stench on the neighbor's dog.

This failure of American intellect (such as it is) is something to be ashamed of.

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Topic February Fast Approaches... Donald Trump is being taken seriously... Should we be TERRIFIED???
Posted 25 Feb 2016 08:55

Threads like this do little more than depress the fuck out of me when I really don't need the extra help, but it's like looking at roadkill. It's just so hard to tear your eyes away from the gore. Trump is nothing but a gasbag of pitiable proportions, and to say he has people thinking beyond any concept that doesn't fit on a bumper sticker is an ambitious view at best. He has all the political savvy of the aforementioned roadkill, and while he has his little heyday farting in a mud puddle and imagining he's making waves, the idea of his actually winning does freak me out, even if I have a hard time believing such a surreal, cartoon scenario could ever become a reality. But win or lose, the most worrisome thing about this whole, sad vandalism of the American democratic process is that there are more than two or three people in the world who actually think he's a good idea. For anything. His entire candidacy is nothing but a tragic waste of everyone's time.

I suppose I should be thanking you for not spilling how I slept my way to the middle. That would be really embarrassing.

It was ok. Some parts were funny. But after a guy put "sit on my face" on loud as he went down on me, I have never wanted any part of it again. Lol

I love those guys! some smooth jazz would be a better choice of music under more sensitive circumstances.
