I've been re-lurking a couple weeks now, and after reading a couple of encouraging threads, I decided to say hello. Quite awhile ago I was a member of this board, for quite some time, under a different username. The support, information and budding friendship I received were great... until a person (not apparently still with the lpsg) decided I was a liar. Interestingly I was not accused of lying about my claimed size! I had those, but this was different, and also a false accusation. Unfortunately I have a personal history with false accusations and this is a particularly sensative area for me. After a heated exchange with an idiot, I had to go away (probably fueling the idea I was a liar). It had other ramifications as well. There was a general and complete lack of support during my little flare-up. This did not, of course, in any way help the matter. I'm not claiming someone should have jumped to my defense and declared I was being truthful, though it was an accusation that can be independantly verified without resort to a ruler. It would, however, have been nice to hear some form of support - even if it was "this guy's being a jerk - you don't have to rise to his bait" - but, nope. I mention all this not for sympathy or anything necessarily for myself. I mention it because I hope that someone here might learn that inaction speaks as loudly as action when it comes to support - even the limited kind of support involved here. I've decided to try this board again. As I said, I got some valuable things from it. I'm not going to, I think, refer to my 'former self' for the forseeable future. For now, I'm claiming almost nothing. If someone wants to say the sky's green, I'll try to only offer that I have been told the color of the sky I see is called blue. Besides, I've seen green skies. All I'll claim for my own right now:I'm male, gay and have a penis.
