MorganOBM wrote:I agree 100% with rmh. There are talks about FOSTA being in full force in 2019. I think a lot of the upset was sites like Cityvibe and many others packing up and taking off leaving the advertisers to figure out whatever. There is a sense of community in Pittsburgh and we are accustomed to transparency to some degree or a small heads up.

Good sites are not free! Girls should definitely be paying to be able to post even in the ad forums and guys should pay a non voluntary yearly fee.


One thing people might want to consider: Where some see a community others may see a network with valuable information if a key node or two can be compromised.

I don’t mean to sound paranoid, but often a strength also is a exploitable weakness. And in the current political climate, everyone in such a community should make sure they are being very careful and discreet. The lines that connect us that offer support/information can also potentially ensnare us.

To be clear, I’m speaking theoretically. I’ve no knowledge of any specific efforts, but I expect that if they’re not already In play (in the context of the new legislation), they soon will be.



With that said, happy new year.
It's about time I got rid of that stupid signature.

I am glad the site is back up, thank you to the admin and others who keep this together. I went to some other social media in my scramble, other indys members scrambled there. Thanks to everyone lending a hand during the down time. I learned again to be prepared

I love this place, makes life easier and more enjoyable. owes me nothing!

The sense of entitlement by some is bizarre. You don't own the site or have the right to dictate what They do. Just be glad Indys is back or start Your own site.

Oddly enough I did that once, at least inspired the birth of one. It’s not all glitz and glamor. Far from it. It’s also the reason why I was disappointed with the timing of the offline period.

I have been very outspoken in support of the site and anyone who said anything about it. I was to the point of putting myself on the line, but I don’t enjoy investments without return. Do I feel entitled? Nah. Do the people who have invested blood, sweat and tears wish things would be different? Yes.

I apologized in another thread and sincerely meant it. Finding out the site was down on a whim of sorts was painful. Many people speak about things without knowing the details. A few weeks ago I would have never imagined saying this but I feel this site needs to either start charging a good amount for hobbyists and providers or just stop. The site is investing too much on a voluntary basis.

The problem with that is if the shit hits the fan and the site owners are prosecuted it could leave all parties open to charges for financing a corrupt organization or enterprise and money laundering.

Pulling the glue records was an interesting touch.

Glad it's back.

While this site as well as free social media do not owe anyone anything there is the divergence into doing what is morally and ethically proper and right. It is not proper and right to let people come to depend on something to advertise for their source of income then take it away without notice, especially several days before Christmas. Quite frankly that was morally reprehensible. The same could be said if Facebook suddenly ceased to exist after numerous businesses have come to count on it for advertising and millions of people use it daily to communicate with family and friends.

Unfortunately many providers and clients have put all their eggs in the Indys basket and are ill prepared for the possibility that the site could go away or all the eggs could be devoured by the Federal FOTSA Fox. Many through the years have said they only see vouched Indys men or women. Take a lesson from the down time and some of those who have contributed to this thread and explore other means and methods of advertising or searching, communicating, and screening so that your income stream (providers) and pleasures (clients) will remain uninterrupted should an adverse action take place.

***BUMP***

Some solid advice in this thread that everyone here needs to keep in front of them for future reference and planning.

And a big "Thanks" to contributors who are no longer on this board. You are much appreciated!
