I first got on the internet in '99. I fumbled through it, at first, to find job contracts. Thus, the name, cabl_guy. I was using a couple of internet sites relating to my field of work. And, I signed my 1rst 18 page contract for a job in Oregon using fax and pc. 118 miles of blueprints @ $80/mile! Took me 3 1/2 months to complete it.
It was like a paid vacation! I lived in Ohio and was working in S. Carolina at that time. So, I did my search for areas and payscale.........etc.,. All in my spare time, at night, with a buzz, from my motel room. No more sending resumes' by Fed-ex and all of that.
Well, long story short, I went to Oregon, Idaho, Arkansas, Wyoming, Illinois and so on with a couple of companies. Getting paid VERY well and only bidding on jobs where I wanted to be..........or, close to it anyhow.
During the same timeframe, yahoo messenger USED to be free and have 'user created' rooms by state, sexual fetishes, etc.,. My favorite, during that time, was "Ohio Swingers & Singles" room. I chatted on there for damn near 2 years. Going by cabl_guy, Rumpled_Foreskin and Bob_MyKnob. Most called me Bob. lol
Anyhow, it was similar to this site.......at one time. And, I actually went to a yearly party to meet the whole bunch. It was a blast!! We all met at a plain-ass bar on a designated night. I even met a couple from Oak Hill...........which I live 7 miles from now.
The cable TV business failed as the phone company bought them all out. Now, they pay guys $10/hour or less and expect quality. We USED to have a 98% clause on accuracy but, you find that hard to come by at cheap wages.
And, Yahoo killed all of the user created chat rooms. They figured out, if they charge for it, it makes it better............Uh, yeah, right! Philosophy doesn't agree with practicality.
And, so this site will go as well. I, for one, find it a PRIVILEGE to be able to do as we do for FREE. Adult Friend Finder being a good example of things to come. So, to all of you bitchin, whining, sensitive people that want to impose restrictions and make it a 'vanilla' site. It'll come soon enough!
You get it for FREE! And, you won't truly appreciate it until it's yanked out from under you. Then, you'll be crying!! It'll be like, "What ever happened to the OLD AMD?" Due to popular demand..........we've become a pay-only site to control the influx of fake profiles and abusers...........and, it'll be ALL your fault!!!
Just my thoughts on it! Like it or lump it. I could give a fuck less! Ah! BUT, I can still put FUCK in my text! FUCK, FUCK, SHITTY ASSHOLE, NASTY CUNT, DICK-SUCKING TROLLS........... .........You guys think it's bad now....
