I can probably still name every pedophile that came onto me there. The funny thing about Peter File is that Tommy on several occasions stated publicly he had been banned. But it never happened.
Tommy actually did very little for the community and the real pioneer I'm told is a man named Gene Clennon. I saved two posts from another site from some older respected members discussing DPF which gives some serious insight to the older days.
"Actually, Tommy got his idea from the late Gene Clennon. Gene had the first roster listing of ABs/DLs - Li'l Wrangler - that I'd ever seen. This would have been 1978-80, or so. Before that, there were random ads in various publications - Advocate, Penthouse Letters, etc. I worked for Gene until he became too ill to run Li'l Wrangler, which was then sold to Tommy and became DPF. Some of Gene's photos from his photo sets are still floating around the Internet, 30 years later."

"Exactly. Tommy was as far from a pioneer as there could be. I would place him as more of a community leech. Other people would start projects and he would steal them and incorporate them into his own ventures with no credit to anyone. He even attempted to file lawsuits against true early pioneers, claiming he owned the rights to the terms Adult Baby, Diaper Lover and AB/DL.
I still have the nasty letter I got from his lawyer about 15 years ago when I opened a site with photos of myself and my wife. He threatened to sue me for using those terms among other things. I should dig it out for some laughs... "
