When Jeff Hunter started TOTSE over 20 years ago, the idea was to have a place where all types of ideas could be spoken, traded, and exchanged, where no topic was off-limits or forbidden. When I started RDFRN, my goal was to continue this tradition and provide an outlet where people can exchange free information and share and discuss anything and everything that social networking sites and family-friendly communities can't or won't allow in an environment unbound by what society defines as acceptable.
I want to sincerely thank all of you for supporting this vision over the course of time we have shared together. To all of the staff members, former and present, I greatly appreciate your dedication and efforts to this site and to this community. To the contributors of this site and of this community, I genuinely appreciate your efforts more than words can express.
Many of you have expressed words of encouragement, and I believe you will go on to do great things. This community has gone through a lot, and I know this will be disappointing to many of you. I deeply apologize for that, and my intention was for things to turn out differently.
Due to extenuating circumstances and in light of recent events that have affected me personally, I am unable to continue operations of RDFRN. I am closing down the site as of June 25th, 2015. I wanted to allow a little time for everyone to take care of business and make plans for next steps, but every day I continue operations places me and others I care about at risk. I humbly request that you leave me in peace.
Remember the good times. I implore you, do not give up on things in which you believe. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?
So make your plans, set up a new rendezvous, and move on to the next thing. Thanks for the memories, it's been an interesting time to say the least.
