So, was bored
« on: April 28, 2019, 07:32:52 AM »
And for some irrational reason wondered what the old farts in the old RU forum were up to and even if the board existed any more.
Surprisingly, although it probably shouldnít be, the same old farts are posting the same old waffle so hi. :D
Iím still married going on 11 years, our daughter is 6, and Iíve moved houses and companies several times since I was here last.

I guess Iíve missed more drama than anybody could recall - probably as much around US politics than RU subjects.

Congratulations on your marriage and daughter.  Six years old is a delightful age.  Going to school, making friends, exploring boundaries, becoming their own person. 

When you say "same old farts are posting the same old waffle" I assume you are talking about political issues, not issues related to new men meeting women, because there are few of the latter.

Ade,


Nice to hear from you again. I started this journey back in 1997 with the RWG (Russian women guide). My wife and I have been married 16 years. My biggest complaint with this (RWD) site is the lack of moderation.........and focus. On the old RWG Spencer (site owner) would never put up with all of the irrelevant BS that goes on here. There is virtually no moderation.....with certain members who have personal ongoing beefs with other members. The amount archives devoted issues other than "pursuit of FSUW" is probably at 80 or 90 percent. The only reason I come back here....occasionally....is with the small hope that a member could use my help. At the old RWG there were only 350 - 400 members......with close to 25% actually making at least one visit to the FSU. Here on the RWD my impression is that it is closer to 5%......maybe. This would be a more focussed (pursuing FSUW) and useful forum.......if it was actually moderated.

making this board more "user friendly" for elderly white men probably ain't too high on the TODO list for this week...
so I'm afraid what you see, is what you get

Krim,


Since there are more than a few "elderly white men" on the forum.......it only makes good (business) sense to cater to such a group.

Isn't the RU forum the other guys? We are the RWD forum. But anyway greetings again.
