Welcome Eve!

I assume you already found the story section. Might be worth introducing yourself on the bhm/FFA board too.

Sorry it took me so long to respond, Yakatori!

'Renaissance man' (or polymath, as some know it) has several shades of meaning. It can be used in a sort of 'layman's terms' to mean someone who knows a lot in a variety of areas. It is also a historical/political reference...and then there is the flippant meaning it has taken on. And I kind of mean all three!

In that time period there wasn’t the flow of information that we have today. There were men (generally) who were usually highly skilled in reading and writing multiple languages. Their main purpose was to collect and retain information at a time when, as I understand it, people that that was possible to learn all the information in the world. These people didn’t just accumulate information for the fun of it; they gathered this information because it could be traded for money. They would learn things that may be important, travel somewhere, and ‘sell’ that knowledge, be it building a dam or translating a text. They are known for what they could do, but the reason they did it is for money.

In information security, the sheer amount of information/areas are mind boggling. In the CISSP book, nearly every paragraph/page represents an entire area of specialty. So even if you take something as ‘simple’ as encryption; it is relatively easy to understand the concept of encryption…but designing the algorithms, keys…it’s pretty deep stuff. Add to that that the complexity of applying the correct type of encryption…you can easily pick the wrong tool for the wrong job.

Right now, there is an influx of contractors in the IT/Security industry who cycle from company to company just...throwing out random information that has no real context or value to the company. They basically learned some "stuff" and are now peddling it to a company who needs it (the flippancy part comes in because they honestly seem to think they can just glance through a dusty book in the bottom of some monastery and come up with a real life solution to a global company). So they waltz in, say “oh, use encryption B on your mobile devices!” and saunter away. Meanwhile, the company spends a million dollars implementing it only to learn that that particular encryption method is processor heavy and crashes the application, causing loss of security and revenue.

Or, to use another example….DIMS forum uses a search limiter. This is to prevent something called a denial of service attack (on purpose or by accident) by so many requests coming in that their servers go down. They have something like a 30 second timeout – which works for their needs. But imagine a contractor suggesting to have a 30 second timeout between you being able to check your banking records, and if you flip too fast you get locked out. You’d have furious customers, and lost staff…or sometimes they don’t tell the company what to limit; so you search for transactions and it would pull up anything you ever did – EVER. Have thousands of people doing that at once and your servers keel over, which opens you up to OTHER attacks…

Blah. Sorry…IT is my passion…lol!!!

My point is just that people think they can skim the surface and be an expert in every area (and I am all for the 10,000ft view!) but when they begin to honestly think that their high level understanding is expertise…that’s where it frustrates me. Its like saying “I am a Doctor! I know everything about every area of speciality in the entire human body, from neurons to cancer to”…etc etc etc.

About me: I've been a long-time lurker on Dims, but hadn't been able to post due to some weird posting restriction problem- seems like that's suddenly resolved on its own now so I'm happy to finally get to share my thoughts with the community. I am a semi-regular at the Atlanta bbw events hosted by the Starz group. I'm a single lady with no children (don't want them either), I am pansexual/bisexual/whatever you want to call it- essentially, I like people regardless of their gender (and size). I'd love to chat with like-minded people- particularly if you're in the Atlanta area.

Name: Dee (short for Danielley)

Profession: Artist and Writer
Music: Music is my sanity and I find each genre has an artist to admire. Most recently I've been listening to a lot of Arctic Monkeys, The Cure, Pine Hill Haints, Crystal Castles, Skip James and Behemoth. I like music that provokes emotion and/or can be danced to.
Likes: The feeling of wind on my face and breeze through my hair. Natures million shades of green. Dreaming. Laying in bed watching storms through open curtains. The colors of Autumn. The soft feeling of plump bodies. Oddities. Finding beauty where others don't see it. Making people feel good. Food. Textures.
Dislikes: When people take advantage of others. Coming out of the ocean and having everything stick to me and not being able to rid myself of sand. When my hands feel greasy. When people don't listen when you're talking to them. Narrow-mindedness.
About me: I'm a gypsy soul, roaming the waking plane. Growing and changing everyday. I'm this now but tomorrow starts another opportunity to be someone different, learn something exciting and do something new. I genuinely love getting to know others and relish in the opportunity. I'm probably one of the most open-minded and unbiased people you could ever meet. Have a secret? I'm the one people always seem to tell. I've recently recognized my adoration for big, curvy, soft bodies (mine included) and I'm so happy to have found this site and forum. Truly. I wish I could hear from every single person here! Please don't hesitate to drop me a line!

Hi all,
Fairly new here, although I do use a couple of other forums related to this lifestyle choice.
Always been attracted to larger ladies, since I hit puberty, and never found anything attractive or sexy in the usual model type women. I really dislike fake add-ons, ie fake breasts, ladies plastered in make-up, hair extensions, false eyelashes, etc. I think ladies are beautiful with a more natural look, and womanly figure, instead of those lollypop women (big heads and stick bodies).

Name: Nik
Age: 46
Location: England
Profession: Van Driver
Music: I love allsorts it's my passion. Oldskool Rave / Hardcore Jungle Techno, House, Trance, Prog Rock, jazz, Folk, Rag, & more
Likes: Fitness / Weights, Wing Chun (Kung Fu), Mountain Biking, Music Production, Radio Communications, People with manners.
Dislikes: Bully's, aggressive people, rude & ill mannered folks, fake persona's, prejudice & small-mindedness.
About me: Recently got married to my beautiful curvy wife, I have a daughter studying at uni, and my secret to a happy life is to put hobbies & fun before money and material possessions.

Name: Ken
Age: Over 35 by the time you read this.
Location: Massachusetts
Profession: Researcher
Music: Any music I find catchy, and don't find the message objectionable.
Likes: Philosophy, theology, art, animation, writing, reading, poetry, quality media, games, fiction of any sort, any and all abstract concepts and ideas, but most importantly, honesty, order and truth.
Dislikes: Faulty philosophical positions, philosophical fallacies, pride.
About me: I've known I had this FA side of myself since I was a kid in elementary school and was pleasantly captivated by one of my teachers, who could almost fill the classroom door (though in reality, I've probably felt this way much longer.) My high school crush and a crush at one of my early jobs were both very big girls, but apart from them, and a few bespectacled ladies (who I think I liked because I envied the look of their glasses, which focus all the attention on the eyes,) my feelings of attraction were few and far between, and after some early negative experiences (bad reactions from girls who were repulsed by my feelings,) I decided not to inflict myself on anyone else until I knew what made for a successful relationship. That, in turn, lead me to religion, philosophy, and in the end, inner peace.

I'm not an activist, or a feminist in any sense, or a liberal. I'm about as far from all of those things as a person can get. I just happen to be the sort of person who has felt pleasant appreciation of human beauty always and only when a very large girl/woman was nearby. It's the same kind of feeling as when you see a Niagara or a Grand Canyon; the wonder of the beauty that you see makes you feel relieved, and that's what it's like with me. I feel I can relax and talk comfortably with bigger people.

Over time, the pressure of the status quo has, sadly, increased my dislike of the thin appearance. I say it's sad, because I know there's nothing wrong with being thin. There's beauty there, and I know this, because some people can appreciate it, but to me, the whole experience of life has been difficult because of the prevalence and aggressiveness of this image that I don't appreciate. It's only made it harder for me to find moments of peace. In any case, I doubt I'll ever find love, because among other things, she'd have to sympathize with me in these areas, and I know very few women who feel as I do about this.
