I try to be as careful as possible when I post something precisely because of the fact that English is not my first language and so when I see long posts where there is a lot of "text speak" and/or extreme lack of proper punctuation I honestly do not bother to respond.

With all the above stated I do realize that everyone is welcome to participate in this forum and I try to be careful not to assume that poor spelling or grammar immediately signifies that the poster is fraudulent.
What is your native language?

Poor spelling and grammar issues do not signify that a poster is fraudulent. Some of the posters who have the best grammar and spelling are trolls.

I know that sometimes my posts have spelling, word usage and grammar mistakes. It's because I type posts quickly and move on. It's more of a typing issue, not an issue of being illiterate or stupid.

I think we all make mistakes from time to time. I myself would probably contribute more often if it were not for the fact that I have difficulty being concise and that I am self conscious about spelling and grammatical errors. Thus one post can take me a very long time to type. Yikes.

I am referring to certain posts where there are numerous errors that are unlikely the result of quick typing.
Not all of us have perfect command of the English language and that is perfectly fine but I think it is courteous to try and do our best to post in a manner that is intelligible to most.

I do admit it must be frustrating to others that my posts are so very long and I apologize for it in advance.

I got this giant 40 inch screen with 3480X2160 resolution and can barley read the writing on it. I make so many typing mistakes mainly because I can't see them.

I think I'm afraid to be happy. Because whenever I get to happy, something bad always happens.

Just teasing you.


I had to say that because you seemed worried about it. Don't worry. In fact, mine are very long as well. I don't have your grammar skills, either. English, American English is my first language.

Re: How many of the threads here and elsewhere are frauds.

I have taken many courses and seminars about information on the internet since my job is working with information and figuring out which is good or not. I have always be told that 60% of information on the internet is either mistaken in some or all aspects or downright lies. I think on forums that deal with sex, that percentage is much higher. I have had an unusual marriage and sex life that reads like a porn story and I have to leave a lot of stuff out to perhaps get some to believe it because even I do not believe it.

Having experience in a lot of areas like relationships and marriages of all kinds, as well as a very liberal sex life, I can usually figure out who is posting to just elicit as many responses as they can and who is not. I basically treat the forums as entertainment. I would not think of asking strangers for advice. They do not know me so how can they help me based on a few paragraphs I write. Plus they are only getting my side of the story. They may all side with me not knowing that I beat my wife or some such thing.

I try to use my personal experience as an example but some will never believe me, but that does not detract from my experiences. I am old enough to not care who knows what I do, or did. Until last year I never told anyone about my unusual marriage or sex life unless they had a need to know. My wife has told no one that she is bisexual. Her parents went to their graves not knowing. My parents do not know that the girl they knew as our good friend, was also our lover for most of our marriage. When you are married people assume you are like them and for women it is easy to have a girlfriend since the word "girlfriend" can have two meanings.

There are posts that I read and having experienced myself, that do not ring true. Here is what blew my mind last year. A guy posted that his wife forced him to wear a maid's uniform and serve all of their neighbors, friends and family dinner, wearing the maid's uniform and a chastity device. After dinner he said that he was ordered into the bathtub where everyone urinated on him, even his parents. I was sure that there would be many posts claiming shenanigans, but instead all of the posts were expressing congratulations or jealousy that he lucked out when they could not. That gives you some idea of what forums are like. I think sometimes sex forums are mostly guys living their sex life online and then feeding off of each other's fantasies. There are also trolls who need attention so they post outrageous things and sure enough they get a lot of responses. I post outrageous things too but do not expect people to believe me if they choose not to. I know what I did so who cares?

Many prefer to drown in a pool of their own morality rather than seek the safety of a different morality when the choice is monogamy or your marriage.

Re: How many of the threads here and elsewhere are frauds.

The recent fake thread was pretty well done, IMHO... only a few times I thought it maybe fake - but didn't want to chance to call the OP out himself. The thing is, there are children who do experience such horrible things - sometimes worse, but not usually that bad. And the reactions of the "clean cut" guy... are not out of the norm. It does suck that we've been had... oh well. I've not thought much about it since the thread was closed. These things happen. Maybe it could help someone in the future - who knows. The actual info for helping those of sexual abuse is real.


@Vinnydee : I've seen or met or know many kinds of people with various kinky life styles. I find it intresting of the spectrum and have learned not to judge people by who they are - but how they treat others. With my wife, family knows she is bisexual. Also, half the women I dated were bisexual - I don't go seeking them or making that a requirement... it just happens.

Oh well... hopefully we'll catch the trolls early rather than later.

Supporting those who want to divorce or reconcile. Not every relationship is the same.
