    I was talking about this with a buddy over Yahoo fairly recently, and he said that he felt pretty disappointed keeping up with a few members from here, only to find out that they can't back up their claims or choose not to project their true, real selves in conversation. My friend was a little disappointed talking to guys who claimed to have garguantuan or truly huge measurements, only to find out on cam that they weren't as stacked as they thought.

    With the recent influx of members claiming near-infathomable sizes, stories, or livelihoods, I, too, must admit that my skepticism is on the rise. I don't know. I suppose my mood on this is somewhat confounded. I've had my fair share of Yahoo interactions with members who either lurk or rarely post, don't volunteer much information, or participates in real limited conversation.

    How big are you? (My measurements are posted somewhere.)
    Pic? (Yeah, check the gallery.)
    Is that really you? (Want to see proof on cam? Of course, it's me.)

    But anyway, hell... I'm sure people can be gigantic on here and purely 100% legitimate, whether or not they have digital proof of their goods. I know I've encountered enough people to flamboozle me -- until that all-around-the-Internet picture shows up in my e-mail box. So, fake porn pics don't do it for me. And, for that matter, eyebrows naturally perk up while reading someone's posts only to find out that they've switched dick sizes quite a few times. And not just a half-inch or so here or there.

    The way I see it, I try to be myself and nothing more. All my pictures are me, even if the webcam ain't all that great. I don't pretend to be anything I'm not, and it's not my job to impress people. I am thankful that people on here know who I am and feel comfortable interacting with me whether it's on the board or on Yahoo. I am appreciative of the blog hits. But I feel like if I had to pretend to be something I'm not, whether that's of the studly physical nature or changing my dick size, then that interaction would all feel really fake... and empty.

    And yeah, the Internet is the perfect place to be anything you want to be -- believable or not -- and that that need to be something great might stem from an insecurity elsewhere in your life. And while I feel for people who have to go through that, I also want them to remember one thing...

    People have come along for as long as I can remember with the sole purpose of flaming other members, posting ridiculous and/or inflammatory content, or getting a kick out of leading people into their web of lies. I like this support group a lot. It gives me really great information and good social interaction with people I normally wouldn't cross, I think. And I really treasure that. So before you follow through with the temptation to be something not, just remember that someone else is on the other end of that PC, hoping that you are nothing more than yourself so that they can have a good interaction with you. And if you're really you, you can feel comfortable knowing that you don't have to have any pretenses in order to feel cared about or to strike someone with your interest.

    Just be you. It's a lot to ask from the world wide Internet, but I think we could all suffice.

    Excellent thoughts, Dee.

    The thought I've had is that you can count on the board veterans as truthful and trustworthy - it's probably for that reason that many others stick around for so long.

    It's the "Wham-bam-thankyou-ma'am" posters (who come to the board, post a few inane topics which are generally far from original and then go away) who are probably exaggerating the worst. They're the ones who want to cam and message, not for "getting to know you," but for stats and dick pics.

    Yeah, Dee, You're right on it. I've noticed more than a few times that the ones making ridiculous claims don't seem to last long, so I just sit back and let them weed themselves out. Some stay, most go, but I'm never very interested in the noobs who post "Got 12'' PEe peE need HelP faSt". Stories that are false have a way of coming unraveled over time, so I let them dig their own hole. Any stranger requesting dic pics before they even know you should go on your automatic ignore list!

    Dee,

    Thanks for starting this thread. It is the gracious and intelligent contributions of yourself and others that I come back to read. There are always going to be people who like to cause controversy or express themselves offensively but I think for the most part we hava pretty good crew of folks here.

    Naughty

    I could probably say that about real life, actually. I'm pretty annoyed that one of my friends feels that change being forced apon by other people is a good thing.

    I say "fuck you all!" literally and metaphorically. I am what I am, online I can't "prove" that I am not an AI bot that just passed Turing's test. I can't "prove" my background, my history, my life and my opinion tends to be presented weirdly anyway. But at the very least, it's the people you can or cannot relate to here that matter, when you recognise guys by their name and the way they act. That's important.

    <span style='font-family:Geneva'>I agree too. All the things u said were true. I like this site alot cause it gives me alot of info that helps and it gives me a place to talk about things I would normally be too embarassed to talk about and it also deals with alot of subjects that don&#39;t get much attention.

    I never pretend to be anything I&#39;m not. I&#39;m about average size, but I&#39;m proud of what I got. Most of the guys who have been on here for a while and are keeping real treat everybody pretty well, but it doesn&#39;t help to have those jerks who come bragging and making false claims. This only attracts more jerks who make false claims in response.

    I&#39;m about average, and sure most guys wouldn&#39;t mind being a bit bigger, but I don&#39;t lie. If someone wants to see, I&#39;ll show them. But there are plenty of reasons why somebody wouldn&#39;t want to show or couldn&#39;t. And like u said the internet is often a place where people can be whoever they want to be. I could understand why someone would want to pretend to be someone else. What I don&#39;t understand is why someone would have to be a jerk?
    x( If you&#39;re gonna pretend to be someone else, be it extremely hung or what ever, I could maybe deal with that, but don&#39;t be an asshole, and it least be good at it if you&#39;re gonna lie. x(
    That&#39;s how I tell the difference between the guys who are being true and just don&#39;t or can&#39;t show for whatever reason.. they&#39;re usually not pricks. :9

    For those well-mannered, reational people who quietly want to live out a little fantasy every once in a while on the internet, I say go for it. I may even try it out sometime. But there is a time and place for that. Find someone who&#39;s looking for that fantasy and talk to them. Don&#39;t post on this kinda site where people are trying to find semi-useful info. If you&#39;re looking to live out your fantasy of having a big dick, chances you can find somebody who is looking for a chance to live out their little fantasy of being with somebody who has a big dick and y&#39;all can have a little internet fun togeather. Go somewhere else and do that. :eyes: But don&#39;t act like an idiot and post crap that ain&#39;t true in a room full of people. It&#39;s rude and stupid.
