I write stuff.
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.
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.

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.<img src="/forum/images/emoticons/glasses10.gif" alt="glasses8"> These are both great suggestions. Would a forum on Sex in the News be called The Pink Tank?
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.
I've read this one last night and it sure worked for me. Highly recommended. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. https://www.lushstories.com/stories/spanking/tonight-i-call-you-precious.aspx Wow, Ms. Candy. Spank you very much! :)
I agree with this. Yes, very good idea. I've wondered this myself a few times.

Frank_Lee avrgblkgrl Thank you so much, moonlight. And for placing me in such esteemed company. avrgblkgrl is among my very favorites, too.
We have exactly the same idea about the special "button" but would everyone admit to it? I know I never would. lol
This is where I put things Everything that has no other place Here's a tiny spate of gentle rain Coming at the end of a hard spring And here's that moment I sat beside her Studying the lines of her face While the world was burning down To nothing we could use anymore Here are all the silences Between the words we gave away And here are the remnants of my heart ...

Echo studied her hair in the rearview mirror of Hawke’s truck. He hadn’t done too badly cutting it, and it hadn’t taken her long to add a few finishing touches with the scissors. The change was simple, yet drastic enough she barely recognized herself. A sense of exhilaration played at the edges of her nerves. In a long sleeved blouse and oversized shades, Trey could pass her on the sidewalk...

“Echo,” he said. “It’s time to get started.” She had to blink a few times to get focused. Hawke was sitting on the bunk opposite hers in the trailer. He was leaning onto his elbows down on his knees, watching her face even though the cropped T she went to sleep in had ridden up over her left, candy tipped breast. She wasn’t even aware of it until he reached over and gingerly pulled the edge...

The machine streaked across the desert, screaming through bleak vistas of scorched earth where nothing lives without a little outside help. Joshua trees and desultory vultures. Fossils buried under the salt floor of ancient seas. She was hammering the gas, white knuckling the wheel until the screaming of the engine drowned out the screaming in her mind. She was riding inside a shot bullet,...

Empty brick factories were falling down around her. Glory days abandoned. Hungry souls watched from every broken window. The black thigh highs were balled up in the same hand with her clutch. They were only a couple shades darker than the tone of her bare thighs. The spikes she’d been wearing dangled from the other hand. It was a couple more hours to sunrise, and the cement still...

Mouse had taken to dancing in her panties and socks. Her shoulder-length hair - fine, yet a nondescript, easily forgettable shade of brown - whipped around her head and got caught in her glasses. But she kept going, arms and legs flailing wildly yet not without a sense of design. It was as if she were moving to some bright vision of grace in her mind that her body couldn't keep up with. ...

He was thinking about that rickety set of wooden stairs going up the side of the house. Rickety house. Rickety love. Then the train banked at speed and Bill listed sideways into a much bigger, dark-skinned man sitting a space away. The man hardly budged. Bill was sure he was the only one in the entire car who swayed as far as the train. He mumbled a garbled apology and righted himself...

“Keep your voice down,” Zach hissed forcefully. “You’ll wake her up…if you haven’t already.” He was fighting a losing battle to calm down the naked blonde. Everything had been going perfectly until she started in on Jamey again. He wished he could turn the clock back about twenty minutes, when they were still chest deep in his swimming pool, her lithe legs encircling him while he lifted...
