OK I said I would never make another poll or start another thread here....... OK I changed my mind. I am sure many people will be very pissed off about this poll. I await much criticism and hard words from certain members. Quit Frankly I don't care. If you want to take part in this poll please do, if not then don't.

People should realize that they might be confessing to a felony if they participate.

I have no hard words for you, ryeguy. Only sadness that you have chosen to do this.

Sometimes the real world is distasteful and macabre. In a perfect world everyone handles responsible all the time, there are no bug chasers who want to get infected and accidents don't happen. Guess what this world is not perfect. Don't feel sorry for me, don't judge me, just look in the mirror and be honest with yourself.

When I need confession I'll visit my priest. Polling demeans this topic and you.

I do not feel demeaned. I believe many of you may have a guilty conscious or have so much fear yourselves that you cannot think clearly when it gets to close to home.

What part of confessing to a felony do you not understand ryeguy? Did you vote yet? What you believe about fellow forum members is of little or no consequence. Enjoy you little poll.

First of all, the information in this forum would hardly suffice as evidence against anyone in a court of law. I don't only mean the U.S. I mean all around the world. Many of us don't live in the U.S. dollface. The polls are pretty much anonymous, or correct me if I am wrong..?

Hi Everyone --

At the present time, I'm going to allow the poll to stay open.  However, this is an issue that the moderators -- and perhaps the CDM Publishing lawyer -- will need to discuss today.  

What concerns me here is that the possible danger of disclosing potentially negligent sexual activity via a poll.  Online polls, like messages posted in the Forums, aren't completely anonymous.  When you click on an option, it leaves an "IP number" fingerprint, which can be used to trace the user (this goes for everything you do on the Internet).  Granted, we don't have the ability to do this, but authorities -- if they're looking hard enough -- certainly do.  

Ryeguy, just so you know, "disclosure" is a major issue in the United States right now.  The papers have been filled with stories of HIV-positive people being arrested -- and convicted -- for negligent sexual behavior.  I really don't want to give the authorities reason to come after AIDSmeds.com, looking for evidence against certain individuals... or even the larger community.

IMHO -- I do not encourage anyone participate in this poll for the reasons I state above.

OK I locked the poll. I am proud to be an American living in Europe. At least here we really have freedom of speech.

I guess by freedom of speech you mean yours? Have a great day.

ryeguy I am not going to get into this with you. I would ask you to quit sending me pm's. If you persist I will have to ask the moderators to handle it. Personal attacks are not free speech here or in Europe.

Pity is spelled with one t. You are right I did tell you to F-off, in response to your first pm. I also asked you not to pm me again.

While you are at it check the spelling for language, knock the chip off your shoulder and go out and have a great day. Playtime is over.
