Bye Theo,
Thanks for your wit. I have lost interest in this site as well, 10 more days and my membership ends. Good Luck to you!

I totally agree Cathi.... the internet is just a modern day tool to initially "meet" someone you might not have had the chance to years ago. You just have to understand it for what it is and not think you can "fall in love" over the internet... doesn't happen.... that requires personal one on one contact and interaction.

Good for you Kragen...just goes to show that you're more likely to find someone when you're not really looking.
Hope it goes well, be happy x

Freysh and Mod

You may perceive me as rude, but then again, it wasn't until after I got attacked after I started that OUTRAGE thread that I had to let the evil side show.

But then again, some folks were only here to argue, and they're now getting a taste of their own medicine. I'm not here to argue, or at least that wasn't my original intent.

Now, as it stands, I really coudn't care less about what anyone thinks of me online because I already know that I won't find THE PERSON FOR ME online.

I do find it interesting that some folks can be a$$holes and given free passes, while others doing the same thing get attacked for it.

But on a happier note:

Last night, while hanging out with a female friend (and yes, I do have quite a few of those folks who have gotten to know the real me,) I got introduced to one of the women in a chat room she hangs out in...

Lots of chemistry there; she's not a bbw (but still shapely,) but we'll see where it goes.

And people think I don't have an open mind... HAH!!!

"Remain silent and be thought a fool.... open your mouth and remove all doubt" I think that has been proven here. Some people are just plain unhappy and it shows. I am actually sorry to see Theo go and I wish him all the luck in the world. Just because you do not agree with someone does not mean you should be rude. I respect the fact that Theo was always willing to speak his mind and stand his ground... regardless. But I agree, this was simply a thread for him to say goodbye to his friends. I can't wait for my membership to expire so I can follow suit. Have a great day!

Well go ahead Trixie! Your handeling the business. The site will definately be less interesting without you Theo. Take care and best of luck. P.S. Thanks for the goodbye instead of leaving us wondering.

Freysh write:
Oh good god Trixie, i just think you and i will never see eye to eye and your post just proves it again.

I would like to enjoy this place free of fetishists if that makes me a mean person then so be it. That was also Theo's point. I don't encourage the crass and obnoxious behaviour of the fetishists and have the right to vocaly oppose them if i am offended.

But my feelings for you trixie are not the issue the fact is for a number of people Theo was a breath of fresh air and we enjoyed his postings. This was his oportunity to say good bye and those of us who wanted to say goodbye to him not for you to come and denigrate him further.

Of course you have the right to post where ever you want but why do you feel you need to be rude to him as he leaves?

Oh hey Trixie as for the post numbers have you ever noticed that i start threads and continue conversations with my friends therefore generating a higher number of posts?


Well, Freysh, you do spend most of your life on here, going on and on about nothing besides complaining about guys and starting men-hating clubs and on and on about "fetishists" and how you're sick of them.

Maybe you're just ticked off because guys are seeing you for what you really are and are staying clear of you.

No, you can't seem to leave alone something that doesn't even affect you, you have to put your two cents in when it isn't wanted. Prime example... Simply wanted me to get a hold of her, and you just had to chime in with some "sisterly advice" about staying away from me. Wasn't any of your business at all. You're just a bitter w3nch who keeps getting burned and takes it out on innocent folk afterwards.

Get over it. Leave me the h3ll alone, and leave Trixie the h3ll alone!

Someone can't even specific about what they want (and I've had tons of women tell me that it's nice to see a guy who knows what he wants) without you just jumping in there and causing problems.

And as for me, I left myself, but the site wouldn't let me delete my profile; and I only came back because someone mentioned that a certain person on here was trying to get a hold of me.

You're not happy yourself, so you try to ruin it for others...

That's lame. I'm out.

The only reason I felt it necessary to be rude to Theo in this post is because his post here is rude also. Even while saying goodbye he had to take the opportunity to put people down. When I first joined this site I too was amused by many of his posts but I came to realize that the majority of the time his humor was at someone else's expense. This was purely about me responding to Theo's parting shots aimed at the Large Friends community in general. I felt the need to defend the community here just as you feel the need to defend Theo. I don't like bully's and have always stood up to them. That's just me.

*rings the bell*

It is hard not to defend those that we have personal relationships with. It's natural, as Freysh has done. In the same circumstance, I would react similarly. Haven't we all, at some point? Remember back to highschool or even now when someone bad mouths your friend? Don't you want to give them a piece of your mind or beat their azz? Ok, that could just be me...

I'm certain that Modgal didn't mean to offend anyone. It's obviously a culture difference across the pond... she's a lovely girl!

Shake hands, take a bow... There's no reason to be nasty. What is done is done and no one can take back what was said.

I didn't know Theo myself. He seemed like he and I could get along pretty nicely. Forums are places to post your opinions. If you disagree with them you have a right tos say so. However, just remember how many folks can see what you write and how you look when you write it.. would you want to read it about yourself?

Just my thoughts...

The KBster

what in the hell are you talking about? Me, hounding people? Take a look at the number of times I have posted and then take a look at your own number of posts. I hardly think that I have hounded anyone here. I have never called anyone names, I don't harass those that have different beliefs than me, and I don't call the vast majority of the folks on here idiots. hummmmm, who's the hound? By the way, Theo is gone, let it go, you will have to come up with your own insults from now on, how boring will that be.

Bye Theo, I wish you luck. You are obviously a very intelligent person and strong in your opinions and convictions. I hope you find what you are looking for.

I'm sorry that you were offended by my 'mild' comment to Theo. Considering how blunt everyone else is... especially Theo, I didn't think it was that bad. Let me remind you of his own words:
Theo write:
I realised while I was away that the only thing I'd really been getting out of these boards is irritated. Irritated at the self-pitying tone of the vast majority of the posts and irritated at the sacred cows of the BBW-scene (namely fetishism). Ultimately I'm just not interested any more.

I've talked to some interesting people here who have shared my viewpoint on many things, I've also talked to some very dull people. My time here hasn't been a complete waste but I've found less wasteful things to do.
[/quote-message]

I thought I was rather kind considering we have bu/t heads several times on the boards, yet nothing like some have."

My words were for Theo and I'm sorry if you felt the need to defend him.

Oh yes he made it a more interesting place and certainly added controversy and arguments. I will admit there were times he was funny. But mostly he was funny and sarcastic at someone elses expense. I think many people were afraid to post thier opinions on matters just to avoid being bashed or ridiculed by him and his. It did not make for a welcoming atmosphere.

*whistles and walks past the arguments*


Bye, Theo, my friend. I'll miss your posts, but I know why you've moved on. All the best to you :)

Don't worry about it, Trixie. Usually people who spend time calling others names have their own lack of self confidence. The only reason they call someone a name is to make themselves feel better. Folks who already have their own sense of self don't have to call others names to feel better by putting others down.

You are worth more as a special person than anyone who would call you a name. Don't let someone else make you feel badly.

I find it rather interesting that she posted a comment like this:

...What a lovely parting message Music..don't you realise that if you've got nothing nice to say, better to say nothing at all...

Perhaps that bit of advice would have been best taken by its poster. {grin}

Theo, I'm sorry you're leaving although I can understand why. I have vowed never to return to this forum countless times, but I keep sneaking back for a peep and the odd post here & there.
Sadly, I didn't get to know you, but I've enjoyed the controversy and debate that your posts created, and you have often said what I didn't dare to. You've made me laugh a lot too.
The forum will be a much duller place without you.
Good luck x

So Modgal, I guess Theo is the only one allowed to be rude and obnoxious on here, is that it? God forbid anyone give him back any of the ridicule and pompous bs that he dishes out all the time. He can say that people on here irritate him, bore him and are just plain ignorant but if anyone speaks how they really feel about him, they are a cow? Sorry, I thought the forums were about being honest no matter what and feeling free to post. As far as calling me a cow... thats about as low as you can get on a site for fat people. I never have sunk to calling someone names. I'll leave that to people that don't know any better.

Well I for one hate to see you leave too, Theo. You were one of the most intelligent, entertaining and humorous people on here. But I can understand cause it is a bit depressing and fustrating to read these whinning threads about those who have low self-esteem and desperate to find someone to love them.

I wish you lived in NYC, you are someone I would enjoy having as a friend. But keep on truckin' and NEVER change your ways!!!
