    Today is the first anniversary of my joining LPSG and, not coincidentally, this is my 10,000th post. (There are a lot of gallery ratings in that count, but still…) Yes, I know that makes me the biggest post-whore ever and yes, I know that may not be a good thing.

    So let me just say that IRL, for reasons that I hope I have not brought here too much, it has been a pretty tough year, but LPSG has been a place of refuge for me. I know it is silly to get sentimental about a big dick internet site, but the fact is I cherish having a place to go that I found enjoyable and relaxing when things were at their worst elsewhere. I am truly grateful. Thanks to each one of you who make this place what it is, especially those who have taken the time to write me. Specifically, I am glad that I can count on ChicagoSam to keep me in line, even while he is getting out of line with everyone else on the board. I daily appreciate Pendragon’s literary references (though his taste in Welsh prose is questionable) and Naughty’s occasional but inspiring music threads. Plus, I live for Jeff Black to post another pic.

    It is presumptuous, I know, to assume I have anything worth sharing but when has that ever stopped me? I’ve learned a lot about LPSG in a year, much of it the hard way, and today I’m passing on my (questionable) wisdom:

    What I’ve learned this year:

    ABOUT THE FORUMS

    1. Don’t feed the trolls. They only want attention and they go away if you ignore them. I repeat, DON’T FEED THE TROLLS.

    2. The temptation to feed the trolls is, apparently, almost irresistible.

    3. Every forum has its own character, and its own group of regulars. When things get too predictable, you can change worlds just by frequenting a new forum.

    4. The Funny Stuff Forum is, oddly, often the most literate place on the board. The hardest game there is “It’s Like Jeopardy.” Now that COLJohn has left us (to our great loss) the witty Lord Pendragon is its undisputed champion. Don’t take it badly if he comes up with something cleverer than you could possible imagine. It is a compliment if he so much as responds to your posting. PS: If Pendragon doesn’t get you weecallum will. Take the time to look at his gallery if he does.

    5. One has to have an IQ lower than his dick length measured in inches to have no idea of the size of his own cock, but there is no end of boys who need us to guess their dimensions based on one grainy photo with no object of comparison anywhere in the frame. For this reason, the Young and Hung Forum (a.k.a. Fishing for Compliments) is forever going to be dominated by “Am I Big?” threads. As with Sesame Street, you’ll have the most fun there if you like the numbers 6 and 9.

    6. Even though LPSG was started as a joke, we could be better at offering help and support to our members with genuinely large members especially in the Sex with a Large Penis forum. (Real huge dicks are so rare that sometimes I think we don’t take seriously enough the needs and concerns of the occasional newbie who really does have size issues.) Not criticizing, just sayin’.

    7. Most young gay/bi men post that they are 100% straight when they first join. Though their true nature becomes apparent long before they revise their percentages, (usually in the Relationships Forum) the fact is most of them are not so much dissembling as they are in denial, even agony, and I sometimes think the most valuable service LPSG provides is lending a sympathetic ear while they work up the courage to come out, first to themselves, then here and eventually to the world.

    8. Hope springs eternal, but the forums are not all that good of a place to pick up women. Especially not Women’s Issues.

    9. There are some really, really smart people on this board. If any one of Señor Rubirosa, DC Deep, JustAsking, novice_btm, Freddie58, Rawbone8, or Mindseye bothers to respond to your post, pay attention. You can learn something fast. (That is not an exclusive list, by the way, but a few who’ve enlightened me.)

    10. Related to the last point, you can learn more about current affairs in the Etc., Etc. Forum than from most online news sources.

    11. The Celebrity Forum basically works because of Alex8, though Ian the Tall also occasionally posts great stuff. We owe them big. (Both of them, by the way, are also on the really smart list.)

    12. It takes a lot of time and effort to construct something for the Fiction Forum, and courage to post it because it is so self-revelatory. BTW, I really thank the folks who were so generous to me there for my own effort early in my year. That is what made this place feel likea place I belonged to me.

    ABOUT THE GALLERIES
    1. If you can’t say somethin’ nice, don’t say nothing at all.

    2. People like it when you leave kind comments in their galleries, and they generally write you a pleasant note of appreciation. Some of my best conversations start that way. If you are wondering how to make friends on the board, that’s how.

    3. Men who post erection shots in the gallery and then label them with shit like “for women only” or “I’m straight. If you are gay don’t look at this,” are all latent ‘mos. I’ve yet to see an exception.

    4. Those who steal photos and post them as their own generally have very good taste and usually select from the most popular galleries on our site. Apparently they don’t realize that some of us visit those daily and have virtually committed them to memory.

    5. No one who brags about his literally unbelievable dick size without putting up a gallery ever posts a real pic later. No one.

    ABOUT PRIVATE MESSAGES
    1. Private messages aren’t. Don’t write anything to anybody you aren’t willing to see posted in one of the forums.

    2. If the poster does not have a gallery at LPSG, the odds that the picture they send you through PM actually being him/her is less than 10%. The odds that it is a current picture of him/her are even lower. Luckily for me, I don’t care. I just like pictures.

    ABOUT THE MEMBERSHIP IN GENERAL
    1. Truly large dicks are much, much more rare than most people believe. There are genuine giants on this site, but not anywhere near as many as there are claimants. Just sayin’.

    2. Men with truly big dicks occasionally wish they were smaller. If it has not ever at least crossed your mind that your cock may be too big then you aren’t that large. Just sayin’.

    3. More than half of the 19 year olds at LPSG are in their mid-forties, at least. I’d guess that 2/3rds of the women (especially those who rarely or never contribute to the forums) aren’t women. Please do not write and ask me how I learned this. :redface:

    4. While very few people are what they appear to be, before you get too upset, ask yourself if it really matters. Sure, there are those who are trying to make themselves seem more desirable by lying, but since most of us are making superficial judgments about the desirability of people that we are never going to meet IRL anyway, the illusions may be serving everyone.

    ABOUT THE MEMBERSHIP IN SPECIFIC
    1. Don’t piss off Madame Zora. You’ll hear about it fast and unless you make quick amends you will forever after be a fucktard.

    2. Don’t piss off Pecker, either. You may not hear about it, but you will be so fuckin’ sorry if you do.

    3. Big Dirigible was pissed off before you were born. You didn’t cause it and you can’t fix it.

    4. Matthew and Lex may not post that much any more, but don’t make the mistake of thinking they no longer read the board and so it is now safe to publish a racist, homophobic rant. They are both so damn brilliant they will eviscerate your argument and terminally expose your ignorance in a flash.

    5. Uncut really is that nice.

    6. NineInchCock_160IQ is not narrow, but he is straight. You can flirt your ass off and he won’t care. He isn’t that interested in asses.

    7. Jeff Black and ChicagoSam have undecipherable sexualities. Don’t try to figure them out, just go with the flow.

    8. Naughty is well named, but don’t let that fool you. She knows more about music and culture than you, unless you are Rubberwilli.

    9. There are many quiet folks, who go about their business modestly, that have earned the general respect of the board. Dolf250 and Davidjh7 are but two of my favorite examples.

    10. At LPSG, as in life, women tend to hold the place together. The female mods, njqt, kink, cigarbabe, and several others are the real engines behind our big dick site.

    11. Basketbulge, Onslow, Dannymawg, Dongalong, DavieR, NC Bear. Do I need to explain?

    12. There are dozens and dozens of people on this board that I wished I knew better, but because we operate at different hours, or have different tastes, or for many other reasons, I have not been able to get to know them as well as I wish I could. It is not meant as a slight if you are not listed here, but an invitation for the future. Advance apologies to those who think they should have been listed and I just overlooked. I’m senile so I have an excuse.

    ABOUT CHAT
    1. It rarely works.

    So here is the big thing I’ve learned: Community is valuable and it is hard to make and perpetuate. (I know it is the nature of things to run in cycles, but I’ve been saddened, nonetheless, by the occasional flare-up that leaves hurt feelings and a regular set of departures. On those occasions I think, “blessed are the peacemakers.”)

    I’ve been glad for everything from the opportunity to study how complex human sexuality really is (my main reason for coming here) to having a mindless game to play when I badly needed to blow off some steam (the main reason I stay). I am glad there is a wide range of interactions here from the serious to the frivolous. It would not be possible if some people didn’t take this place far more seriously than it, on the surface, deserves and put time and effort into everything from videos/pics to detailed posts in threads of all types. The fact is, I feel a real debt of gratitude to the post-whores. Thanks.

    Egads men!


    Both of you have enriched my day substantially by achieving these milestones at nearly the same moment--this must be what the simultaneous orgasm feels like.
    So congratulations to you Doc and to you as well Sam--(and now let me find the Sam thread and congratulate him there).

    The walls of Jericho could not withstand Sam and us all singing your praise Babylon.

    And as for you Strumpet - come here and attend to my needs after all this time.

    Gentlemen - in your honor - I shall be 1% gay for a day, if that's OK.

    FortiesFun, well done man!

    Not only have you reached a great milestone in posting but perfectly timed as well. I can't decide if that's the most impressive feat or your perfect summation of life on LPSG. I was grinning and nodding the whole read through.

    Bravo! and Happy Anniversary!

    I really hope next year you'll be at 20, 000 posts. You've got class and style.

    Happy Anniversary, FF! Congratulations to you and Sam. You have a couple of threads that deserve sticky status and I look for your posts when i'm here.

    People might see LPSG as a time waster but i've made some very good friends on this site and I trust you have as well. I hope your next 20,000 is full of wonderful surprises. :smile:

    Thanks for your kind tribute, Sammy. It may have taken longer to create your post that it took me to write mine, and that is saying something!

    Well, they feel a little better, but this was not bad.

    It's a start. :rolleyes:

    Thanks, Gillette. You got class and style, too!

    And I, yours. Glad you are hanging around the place.

    was it good for you?


    You bring a great sense of fun, which I appreciate. And you are one of the smarties, no doubt. I salute you from the bleachers.

    I'm just glad that everyone is posting again....

    However, I don't think there was enough about Jeff black.:rolleyes: Perhaps in the next 10,000 we could consider more talking about him.. you know, for kicks.:wink: :rolleyes: ( kidding, obviously)

    Good to see you guys in the swing of things... happy anniversary, Doc.

    Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!
    What a huge milestone and heartfelt post!

    Unfortunately, perhaps fortunately on your part, we haven't had much contact since I've joined. In fact the only contact that we've had was when I started a thread that sounded a bit objectionable at the time, and you quickly set me straight. Admittedly, though it wasn't meant to be "iffy" I can't deny that unless I was known it could easily be misinterpreted. What you don't know is that I pm'd members that posted to ensure that they weren't offended, and it led to me making friends with two truly amazing people that I respect greatly and hold dear to my heart. Thank you for that, had you not created that opportunity, I would be all the poorer today.

    I respect you greatly. There are times when your posts tackle really complex issues and your response is not only wise and practical, but you express it in a simple manner - a sign of immense wisdom. Yet you have a great sense of humor at the same time.

    Thank you for the way your touch our lives in ways that you yourself are not even aware of. You are a wonderful person and I value your presence on this site.

    Congratulations!

    Here's a toast to you, Doc! May you long keep making your wonderful and varied contributions to LPSG. On the issue of bisexuality alone, I can't think of anyone who has added more worth to the discussion here.

    You will be shocked to learn that I can relate to this.:wink: Gallery comments are what shot me over 10,000 as well, so to speak. That's one reason I personally am not interested in my own post count. But these milestones do give us a chance to celebrate people who have contributed to our lives in real ways, like you have. Another toast! :biggrin1:

    Thanks for your recognition. I do have to say, however, that the compulsion I feel to play that particular role is one of the things I like least about being here and one that continually makes me wonder if I should move on.

    You're courting his balls? Have you become a demimonde while I wasn't paying attention?

    Aw man! I missed the big event!!!

    Congratulations, Doc!

    You must have beaten most LPSG forum records, and I have enjoyed many of your posts, which were as much quality as quantity.
    They should make your OP a "sticky" as it describes to perfection what newbies can expect from the site!

    Bonne continuation!

    :beerchug:Congratulations FF!:kiss:

    And NO, you are not the biggest post-whore ever.:tongue:

    If you continue at your present rate of posting you just might catch up with him, but the chances of that happening are remote.:wink:





    Yes. I learned that they wanted to get my hot, young flesh. Obviously they are men of great taste and culture.:biggrin1:



    That OP was huge and brilliant FF.:arms:

    Next time make sure that you make 100 or so little posts instead so that you will come ever so much closer to overtaking you know who and getting the biggest post-whore title.:wink:
