Rob, you just made my day much more interesting. I’ve been knowing you for years, even though we haven’t talked for sometimes. I always thought of you as one of the cool guys in the adult industry, even though at times you were a bit slow to catch up and realize what’s going on, but this, excuse my french, is bullshit, and I know where it’s coming from, so let me break it to you: you might have called yourself The Colonel in the past, it’s only a word, a noun, a military rank, a state of mind, the important thing for me is that people can relate to it, they see the user name, and they get the idea of what they might expect, that’s all, there’s nothing more to it, and with all due respect, you have no copyrights to the word “Colonel”, so stop talking about the legal action and that nonsense, you have a decent reputation in the adult industry, don’t ruin it by acting like a drama queen.
I started posting on LIB ever since Luke Ford switched to WordPress and activated the comments section a year and half ago, and everybody on this board knows that, the reason I did so, was because I felt there are things that need to be said and issues that must be discussed with a language that people can relate to, some will agree with my comments, some won’t, some will like my style, some won’t, so what? That’s the essence of freedom of speech, to speak your mind freely and let the others decide. LIB is the only board I write for, I’m not on XPT, ADT, or any of those forums, because I don’t like to chat and fuck around to kill time and get a hard on, I want to talk about the bitter, dark, and nasty realities of this business so everybody, specially the outsiders get a more real picture of the true face of porn in America, and who knows? Maybe something good comes out of it, maybe some young girl in Alabama is smart enough to do a research about porn before signing up with LA Direct, and finds out it’s better for her to stay home and finishes the college instead of taking the bus to Los Angeles and becoming a porn whore.
I started posting here, because I valued Luke Ford’s work and bravery, he was a flawed human being, just like all of us, but he was an ambitious and daring journalist who also valued people’s rights to practice their freedom of speech without the fear of repercussion and the need for self censorship, and I’m glad this site was taken over by a great woman and her team who have the same respect and understanding for their readers as Luke Ford did, it’s a pleasure to be here and write here; and that, brings me to my final point: Rob, it’s interesting that all this time I’ve been writing here, you never felt the need to act and defend “your name and your legacy”, until a few days ago that I spoke against Bill Margold and responded to his insults to LIB and it’s readers. Bill Margold has a big mouth, and if he wants to say something, he knows how to run that mouth, you don’t have to play his puppet. Be yourself, by yourself, for yourself. God bless you, Colonel Rob
