01) Gatekeeper

The MAP community has lost a very old friend.

Gatekeeper, aka Abraxas, was a BoyLover and Girl-Lover, who frequented both BoyChat and GirlChat. He was a pioneer of sorts, in that he was an original co-host of the MAP podcast, Pedologues…Though he left the show early on, he came back for one other episode, late in the series.

I have a lot of respect for Abraxas…He weathered a lot of abuse, on a number of fronts…He was a fighter for us MAPs…and a credit to our community.

He always wished the BL and GL communities would put aside their differences and feuds, and stand united.

I never knew him on a personal level…but I always looked upon him with friendship.

He will be missed.

No More “Age Verification” Free Video Embedding…

Date: March 23, 2017

I’ve stopped using the embedding code, that sidesteps the YouTube age verification.

Potentially, you’ve noticed that a lot of the embedded videos from YouTube are all giving a playback error?

For years, I’ve used the embedding code that is supposed to let anyone watch a video outright, without worrying about logging into YouTube to verify their age…This was done as a courtesy to my visitors.

As always…YouTube has recently made changes to their website…and from the looks of it, they’ve disabled this method of embedding…whether intentional, or not.

This means for me, that I have already dropped the usage of it…To be honest, it was annoying having to deal with a few things about it, anyway…I’m glad to be done with it.

But, now a ton of embedded videos won’t play on this blog…Fortunately, this is why I’ve always included a direct link to the YouTube video page…So, there should be no real issue…Just click on the link…Watch it on YouTube.

All the best…

Robin Sharpe…

Date: August 31, 2015

01) Robin Sharpe has passed away

02) BoyWiki: Robin Sharpe

If you did not know…Robin Sharpe was a very brave Canadian, who spent years fighting “child pornography” prohibition laws. He paid a high price for his unflinching ethical stance.

His official date of death is not known by me, but I wanted to memorialize this giant amongst BoyLovers.

I did locate this article by Tom O’Carroll, which I think is fitting to share at a time like this.

I’ve had a great deal of empathy and respect for Robin, over the years.
