It makes sense; the Russians hold a large share of the world porn market.
Not really, most sites just use models from there. It's the Czech republic that holds a vast majority of the market. America is of course the largest followed by Japan then Czech and after that they are all pretty much even but those are the main three players.

Not an excuse but a reason. I wouldn't want that added controversy here. All sites are different and have their own communities and even announcing it in PM is akin to stealing members which I do not believe in so I will not do that. I will respect Chips site and will work on my own sites in my own way. I consider PH my home and wouldn't want to pilfer it's members in any way, shape, or form.
Called it! LOL

FWIW, Chip has nothing to worry about in competing with Russian forums or porn sites. Russians come here, not the other way around and, as for the porn sites, members wouldn't be gone for long. :D

I will tell you that I do not run any porn sites. The risk with legal issues is far too large for me to want to deal with although they are money makers. The sheer amount of software and monitoring required is way too much work and I do have a day job.

How some Russians congratulated Putin on his birthday:

A Judo school in the city of Lipetsk sent him a kimono with well wishes written on it

(Putin himself practices Judo avidly)

Youth Army (Yunarmiya) cadets from the ethnic Mongol republic of Tuva in Siberia knelt in formation to spell out "Tuva loves [heart] Putin!"


A building in Moscow region has been decorated with a new mural, which depicts Putin as Atlas, holding the world on his shoulders


A big national publishing company also launched a cookbook "Recipes from the Boss" in his honor


Among other things lol

Weirdly enough, even in America, some unknown pilot in the sky over LA, over Hollywood, also spelled out a birthday message for "VVP" with his exhaust fumes
