What Happened to Kayo’s Flow Forum? (Again)

Hi Everyone,

Long-time-no-update indeed! I know much of my menstrual faithfuls and community members have really been lost due to the disappearance of Kayo’s Flow Forum. I wholeheartedly thank a MiM reader “Caroline” for her very helpful tidbit that he has graciously posted on this blog. For those who are not familiar with Kayo’s (and I do need to stress that the site is “Viewers Discretion” and NSFW), it has been the mother-ship of all things menstrual – or rather, more of an erotic nature rather than an educational one. Kayo’s Flow Forum had been discontinued without prior notice, probably to the chagrin of many readers. It was located at http://www.dotcomjunkies.com/members/kayo/forum/ and http://www.spamfreeforums.com/kayo/index.shtml which are now no longer operational and renders an empty/defunct webpage.

I visited Kayo’s daily since the day of the shutdown and sadly, it was never resurrected and I kept on seeing a white empty page. When I thought “it was all over”….

Ah I knew I could count on you to still be in “the flow”. Yep, SpamFreeForums closed it doors and snuck off in the dead of night, leaving no forwarding address. It sucks. I have set up a temporary forum for us to gather our thoughts and try to figure out how to get ourselves a stable home. Go here: http://kayosflowforum.freeforums.net/. It’s free… easy to register. I don’t intend to make it a permanent forum because honestly the interface sucks… but options are limited for us poor “marginal topic” folks I guess. How about a Facebook page?? lol… anyhow… that’s the news. Hope to see some familiar names at the new site!

This brings great relief to the menstrual “fan” community that we have settled and have hopefully found a place that we can call home again. I will of course be updating my navigation link to reflect the change in URL. Unfortunately, the new Kayo’s Flow Forum will probably take quite a while to show up on search engines again and push down the remnants of our old home. I’m sure many people who are wonder, “OH NO, where did Kayo’s Flow Forum go?!” are still getting redirected to the old site when using search engine queries. I panicked just as much as you guys did, as that is one of the few popular places on the internet that has a ‘beyond loving welcome of menstruation’… I am certainly seeing many other “period-positive” sites… but just not generally of that “nature”.

I’ve been told that this new landing spot may be temporary, permanent or temporarily-permanent (hah).

We all breathe a sigh-of-relief this day as we know that TFF still lives. I want to thank everyone’s effort in this, everyone from the webmasters to my “informants” who keep a watchful eye.

Now it looks like we can all “Have A Happy Period!

What Happened to Kayo’s Flow Forum?

Hi Everyone,

Long-time-no-update indeed! I know much of my menstrual faithfuls and community members have really been lost due to the disappearance of Kayo’s Flow Forum. I wholeheartedly thank a MiM reader “Another_Jeffrey” for his very helpful tidbit that he has graciously posted on this blog. For those who are not familiar with Kayo’s (and I do need to stress that the site is “Viewers Discretion” and NSFW), it has been the mother-ship of all things menstrual – or rather, more of an erotic nature rather than an educational one.

Kayo’s Flow Forum is down at the moment because the domain name expired. It is not known if DCJ will continue in operation.

After a temporary run at periodforum.com (whose account was suspended), Kayo has restored the site at
http://www.spamfreeforums.com/kayo/index.shtml
It is physically on the same server that housed dotcomjunkies.com. The archives are still on that server, it is just a question of how to get it over to the spamfreeforums partition. No password required to post for the moment, but details of how to secure a handle are included in the first few posts at the new site.

This brings great relief to the menstrual “fan” community that we have settled and have hopefully found a place that we can call home again.

Please note that as per information provided by Another_Jeffrey and Kayo, that while handles are currently not mandatory, it’s suggested you get one registered for the near future where registration will be required (for posting). There currently isn’t an automated registration form, therefore you’ll have to do it the old fashion way as described here.

Hello people,

Please drop me an email and mention your desired handle. I will register it asap and sent you the password. sff_online at hotmail.com

Important; put “flow forum” in the subject. Its a busy mailbox…with this subject i can help faster 🙂

Best regards, webbie

Kayo also happened to change the current site introduction blurb, probably to reflect what happened/the current situation of TFF/TFF2. However, one of the members “Crossdresser” happened to have a record of the previous blurb which many of us has become accustomed to…:

Welcome All Menstruation Freaks!

Visit my Flow Forum II, sign my guestbook, or enter my private chat.

Why do we do this!? What’s WRONG with us!?
What ever happened to Bianca? Will she ever return? Who cares!?
Do women REALLY like talking about periods!!? Really??
Do guys really get off on this stuff? Do girls!!??

Aren’t you even the LEAST bit curious?… So? Come find out.

And then finally Kayo gave an official response to the situation, minus the details:

Many thanks to Karel (our old DCJ Gremlin Guru Webmaster) for getting us back on the ‘net.

I won’t make this a long story but to answer your questions. For reasons beyond Karel’s control, he could no longer maintain DCJ on the server it was on. He was very upset about this. He did maintain a backup site for DCJ (SpamFreeForums) and I remembered that he had posted the link on DCJ some time ago, in case DCj ever went off-line. So I went to SFF, but the link to DCJ was no longer there, and I could find nothing about DCJ. Taking a chance, I wrote to Webmaster at SFF looking for an email to Karel or Spekie. Karel got in touch with me and offered to set us up here on SFF. So all credit goes to Karel!!

The page looks and feels more or less the same because he is using the same script from DCJ. Spekie owns the server where everything was archived, so it may be possible at some point to get those old posts back, but the truth is we can start fresh and make new archives here. As more members find us and register, we might revive a few threads… we’ll see.

Karel has also tweaked a few things so Google will now display links to this page when searching for the old forum. It might not be the first page or even the second, but I checked with a few keywords and we’re getting some hits already.

We all breathe a sigh-of-relief this day as we know that TFF still lives. I want to thank everyone’s effort in this, everyone from the webmasters to my “informants” who keep a watchful eye.

Letter to James Thatcher, Proctor & Gamble (RE: Have a Happy Period)

I always debated whether or not to post this. No, this isn’t “new” at all, but I just thought it’d be too “common” for me to post this, but at the same time, being a blog on menstruation, how could I possibly not have this on my site? This letter made me chuckle, whether real or fake – it’s a pretty accurate description of their periods for some women.

This was a letter sent to Proctor and Gamble (P&G) regarding their “Have a Happy Period” imprint on their wings sticky adhesive.

Have a Happy Period. Always!

Have a Happy Period. Always!

Dear Mr. Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your Always maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core(tm) or Dri-Weave(tm) absorbency, I’d probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I’d certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts. But my favourite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can’t tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there’s a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? Ever suffered from “the curse”? I’m guessing you haven’t. Well, my ‘time of the month’ is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I’ll be transformed into what my husband likes to call “an inbred hillbilly with knife skills.” Isn’t the human body amazing?

As Branch Manager in the Feminine-hygiene Division, you’ve no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customers’ monthly visits from “Aunt Flo”. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behaviour. You surely realize it’s a tough time for most women. In fact, only last week, my friend Jennifer fought the violent urge to shove her boyfriend’s testicles into a George Foreman Grill just because he told her he thought Grey’s Anatomy was written by drunken chimps. Crazy! The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants… which brings me to the reason for my letter.

Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: “Have a Happy Period”.

“Are you fucking kidding me?”

What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness – actual smiling, laughing happiness – is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless you’re some kind of sick S&M freak girl, there will never be anything “happy” about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don’t march down to the local Walgreen’s armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.

For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you just have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn’t it make more sense to say something that’s actually pertinent, like “Put Down the Hammer” or “Vehicular Manslaughter Is Wrong”, or are you just picking on us?

Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullshit. And that’s a promise I will keep… Always.

Best,

Wendi Aarons

Always Ultra Thin Flexi-Wings😀 this is awesome!
