I pay my dues here. If you don't like it, you're free to go someplace else.

Just some food for thought.
I actually was curious if you had any other options. I really don't know. I admit I'm not familiar with any other site like Literotica. If there is simply no other place I completely understand. You just seem very frustrated and I'm trying to understand that.

I like it here because it seems to have something for everyone - stories, drama, romance, death (okay, maybe not death), politics. I admire those who write and enjoy the stories - I do not write as it's not really my passion. I bet there are more people who read stories than you give credit for.

Yes, I post to other story Web sites too.

I wasn't aware I hadn't been giving people credit for reading stories. On the other hand, I don't care half as much about your business as you apparently care about mine.

Sheesh. I think you're reading way too much into my posts. I was merely curious, asked a question, and made an attempt at lighthearted banter.

Best of luck to you on this site and all the others with your stories.

As far as I'm concerned it's win-win all the way. If Laurel can make a few bucks from providing a service that works for readers and writers both, good for her.
As a writer, the business model is how many pairs of eyes we can get on our work. I have not found another site that even comes close. Yeah, there are faults and problems. Some of the common questions that pop up weekly that should be answered by the site in a prominent place gets tiring after a while.

Also as a writer, this is a good place to hone your skills if that is what you want to do. It is also a good place to find information. I got 'discovered' by mainstream here and I can name a dozen past and present authors who now write in mainstream. I won't so don't ask. If they want you to know, they will tell you themselves.

What this all has to do with laurel not answering PM's have no idea but that is the way of the threads. A tangled web we weave in more ways than one.

Cheers. But I gotta say that alt games here are usually done better than this.

I'm still trying to figure out the website. It seems to have some glitches at the moment.

Well, Freddie's perhaps going to do better since Bram pointed out he always uses the same, larger font. In his very next alt post, he used a smaller font. But with Freddie, it's a case that he just can't hide his posting persona--and it definitely ain't female.

- I won't ask. I'm getting to where I want to be and I'm hitting my target timeframes more or less so I'm good. And I've had lots of help from lots of different people, both here in AH and from the site in general. It's been great (apart from my odd little moments of losing it... now and then - and thank you everyone for tolerating me - I do go off sometimes, I know ....)

A pretty good relationship. Laurel/Manu have a business model for making money off this site. You have your own business model for making money off this site.

Maybe she just gets tired of people who think they are more important than they are because they wrote a wanky story and it got accepted here after 23 tries so they send her a dozen messages asking the same stupid questions all the time and after a while she just has to ignore it to keep her sanitary and stuff.

But I could be wrong.

Maybe. For what it's worth for your hypothesis, I contacted her because I won a contest and wanted to know if I could have the price directly donated to PEN International. She did it last time, and replied swiftly then.

Its probably the best site with AJ not far behind as a whole. Like Nifty and asstr, they are classmates with the like Geocities, this one is the easiest to actually use and publish, though. It might have issues but this Ford Model T still drives.

There are other sites...they just aren't worth it. In my case two of them being probably older than this one are a bitch to even use. One of them I've been waiting about six years for an acceptex membership. This "crap ass site," in my experience is the best one to use; it's active, easy to navigate...sorta... uh no post limit.

And this one has readers. Waaaaay more readers than any of the others I've tried. I haven't bothered with Asstr tho just coz it is so archaic. Wattpad is my next target, up to 45 million registered readers but I'm going to have to work on my content for that one.

Just a stab in the dark, but from the form-like response to my original pm, I bet she was on vacation.

Just a thought...

Off the grid? Does that mean Lit is solar powered? I knew most of the forums are wind (Hot air) powered.

Oh I have my moments too. Just, I like Noirtrash, deliberately obnoxious though he can be. He's fun and he's not too serious.
