I’m 32 years old and first got an internet connection at age 18 in 1995 with the
screaming fast speed of a 14.4kbps modem. I was alone in the universe and my
first search query on diapers changed my life. Back then the IRC chat #dpf was
in full swing and devoid of spambots, lurkers, and trolls. Personal web pages like
Bittergrey’s Den and Pampers Nursery were popping up.
If I were to equate the rise of diaper enthusiasts on the web to society in general,
I would call this our industrial revolution. Today I see few personal pages and too
many pay sites and diaper porn sites. In my opinion this destroys the personal
impact and sense of community of that I experienced when I first reached out for
support on the information super highway.
Now here is my question to those of you who have been around and were online
during this general timeline. Do you think the community of diaper enthusiasts is
less active today than it was fifteen years ago?
