The server running DPF seems to be down - does anybody have any news? I know, for lots of you, DPF is the pits, but for us oldsters, it was the first place we ever talked to anybody who liked what we did - so, if it's gone... RIP.

Probably just temporary. I see they renewed the domain through 2010.

I hope they go out! They were trying to sell DPF, I guess no takers.

I hope they go down because they don't protect identity and they don't respond to e-mail!

I'd like to see the site saved for historic reasons, and made an offer to host a permenet archieve of the site while combining the two communities - no response from DPF. Not overly surprised as I don't think Tommy liked me much and they seem to want to make a good profit for the site and whatever inventory they have left (Can't blame them, just don't know of anyone with that kind of coin laying around.)

That was the first site I stumbled on way back when and I had a baddddddd experience. I was using a different user name and somehow someone on the site sent an email to my late husband's account on our shared computer addressed to my user name. It wasn't about the diapers that upset him he knew I wore and why it was strange men writing to me and being blatantly sexual. I never went back again. That hasn't happened here.

Hugs,

Diapers are like the seat belts in my car. I hope I don't need them but if something bad happens I'm really glad I have them on.

DPF was the first abdl website I ever found. Back then there were a ton of people who would come into the teen chat and pose as teens. You couldn't step foot in there without someone PMing you asking if you wanted to cyber. I left because of that.

It really is sad what happened to DPF over the last few years (geeze, i guess its been about 10 years now since ive seen it turn to crap!)

Like alot of people, it was one of the first sites i used to frequent. But it really started to go downhill, i dont know why they (tommy i guess) try to keep things in line a little better. Now its just a big pile of steaming crap on the internet sad.gif

I agree with DDs idea of archiving it and keeping it hosted on the net as a tribute to tommy and what the site used to be.

I was one of the lucky guys because I never used dpf lol. I heard alot of stories about it and still do.

I was interested in taking a loan out to buy it but its over priced, Not worth it.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of money are they asking for the thing anyways?

OK....I'll show my age....

I was a member of DPF before they had a website! I'll be sad to see them go. Many of the complaints about them are more about the visitors of their site, than the site itself. For most hosts, ABDL sites are a hobby and not a living. No one could monitor chat rooms all the time. DPF did mess up a number of times listing people's info when they shouldn't....but the good they did bringing ABDLs together offsets their f-ups (in my opinion).

Like you, I too tried to contact DPF when I heard Tommy was in failing health. I got no response from Markie. I would guess that the trouble, time and expense proved too much of a burden and that's the reason for DPFs departure from the scene.

I found DPF to be a bit creepy but it still it was one of the first AB sites I found back in '00. I never had a run-in with Tommy, who has been described as J.R. Ewing in diapers, as he would do what he could for the business, and the buck.

Plus, I have heard stories about Tommy using people's secrets to his advantages. Who knows. All I know is I haven't been to DPF in a long time myself, and I have never ordered anything from him.

Some have good experiences with Tommy and DPF, others have bad. I guess it's all how ya all look at it.

Me too, back in ancient times before the internet, nothing compared to the feeling of getting that gray envelope in the mail every other month. Their website has always kind of sucked, click here, click here, click here. I don't even remember the last time I actually wanted to go on the site. It will always be archived, but I think they should pull the plug on the domain and just let fade away.

Yup, DPF was the first site I found on the internet. I dont remember how though, I was into looking at the Huggies, Pampers, and Luvs sites at the city library. Then I stumbled upon DPF. We got a PC at home soon after and I found out about everyone!

Props to the hallmark they were.

My issue is with privacy.

My experience with DPF was basically with the newsletters back in 1994. Although I gave explicit details as to what he could list in the newsletter he failed to respect my wishes.

I guess it was Marky or whoever was the contact for buying DPF, I contacted him about a year ago explaining that I wanted info removed, I never got a response!

I agree that DPF attracted some pretty nasty people, but I also made many friends there and never found it hard to ignore those with obnoxious behavior (it wasn't hard to block them as a last resort). I have to give Tommie credit for one thing -- I sent him cash for a pair of plastic baby pants that I never received, but he eventually refunded the money on his own initiative.

The biggest thing about DPF was the parties. No one has stepped in to fill those shoes. Our community has split and people in RL no longer meet. That's what sucks.

Several years ago, I bought some stuff from DPF, and then greatly enjoyed it and subsequently went through one of the ubiquitous binge and purge cycles. I recall the "Dampers" (their own marketing as they were diapers I believe produced by Kimberly-Clarke if I remember correctly, but can't remember the actual brand name) were quite good as far as absorbency. Those were the first diapers I had tried, and I absolutely loved wetting them, and wearing them under my clothing, and totally soaking them until they almost fell off of me on their own from the weight. Along with teh diapers, they sent me a catalog, something I was a little embarrassed about, but also curious about. I never did order anything from the catalog. I couldn't get up the nerve to do so.

Some time later, I tried to contact Tommy via e-mail to inquire about their membership and get additional information about that. I never heard back. The subsequent news, of course, was that Tommy was in poor health and was trying to sell out to somebody who would be willing to buy. I was never actively involved back then (I wasn't ready to be) so I have no idea what was really going on, but I did long for people I could share these thoughts and ideas with. I just wasn't in the position, financially, to be able to afford a membership, but I would have more than supported them if I had been able to do so.

Then, of course, the message that they were looking to sell was posted on their website, and it became rather obvious why I had not heard back from anybody. sad.gif

Now, there are other communities out there. I happen to think this is a darn good one. For historical reasons, as others have already mentioned, it would be quite sad if the website, at least, is not saved, but there are other communities now, other places for people to come together and share and discuss and ....

I used to haunt the halls (by observation only) of the alt.sex.fetish.diapers Usenet news group, before everything in the alt.sex.* hierarchy deteriorated to a classic spam war among advertisers with no interest in any of the groups they spammed, which is how I learned about DPF. I'm glad I learned of them when I did. I think on some level, it put me at ease just knowing there was such a community out there, even if I wasn't willing to participate in it back then.

Like others have said. I can credit DPF for introducing me to the AB/DL community. Finally, I figured out what and who I was regarding my interest in diapers and such. Way back in 96 or 97. When I got my first PC and Internet. I did a search for "adult diapers" as diapers were what I was looking for. Imagine my surprise when DPF came up at the top of the list. 30 some years of not knowing "what was wrong with me" was finally answered by DPF. I think it was great for Tommy to start DPF even before the PC and Internet were heard of by most. DPF advertised in "adult" and other magazines originally. But it wasn't until he went on the net that many, many other ABs and DLs finally figured out who and what they are.

So, even though DPF has run in course and is slowly dying due to all the issues they've had. I will always know DPF for bringing me out of my "shell". Hopefully, someone can save DPF or at least archive it as I always found useful information on DPF.
