The end of an era

Oh Boy!
I've left this place before and I'll probably do it again.

All I care about are the friends Ive made here. This place can keep rotting.

If you leave... You don't have to worry. Your friends are safe with me. I have enough dildos to accommodate everyone

here's the thing if dragoneer is AWOL, then my guess is this forum is just going to kinda of hover in agony for a while.

So...did he really sell FA to IMVU or whatever? and why? I figure he was making some money off this. Why would IMVU want a site full of dog dicks, whiny pre-teens/teens and piles of cum-covered shit?

Yes, months ago he sold it.

He had just done a big donation drive "for servers" (even though the server Jake that had been bought was completely unused). The donation money went missing and Neer had a lot of debt and a mortgage. So he personally needed money and the site was a great excuse. Selling it just brought eyes off the donation drive. Plus now IMVU employs him so he has steady income on top of the undisclosed sale price and donation pool.

Why would IMVU want a site full of dog dicks, whiny pre-teens/teens and piles of cum-covered shit?

Ad revenue mostly and the hopes of forcing FA's users into becoming IMVU users. The ads on the main site started popping up soon after IMVU acquisition many users complained because of the malware in the ads and the fact that pornographic and rape themed ads appeared evn when browsing the site in SFW mode.

Seen the amount of adverts on FA lately? That's why.

So, should we just add this as a yet another example of the stereotype that furs don't know how to handle money?

basically! Money management is a skill that must be learned. Sadly the people who aren't used to having money have a hard time learning such skill. I am one of these people :(
The most money responsible thing I've ever done was make a 401K and money market account. Total savings: $24 :D
