Thank you.
All of you.


In 1995 we - Robin Thompson and I - launched the first full-on youth oriented website (see Growing Up Digital by Don Tapscott). It was awesome. At that time there wasn't even an Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, or Safari. The best internet speed was a 28.8 modem.

We won awards, and showings, and accolades.

Most importantly though, we won (and I say won, because it was an amazing, undeserved, prize) the hearts of teens and youth worldwide. We grew a phenomenal group of young, active users. And it's from those users that I learned that teens are vastly more intelligent, conscious, and aware than most any person over the age of majority will recognize.

People and society constantly and almost with malice discard the maturity of our youth. Because of the amazing talent of our volunteers, users, and members - I will always strive to give the full credit so richly deserved to those under 18.

We lasted 6186 days from our first page impression (back in 1995) till I turned off the site 07 September 2012. It was a very, very, very, good run. I am excessively proud of what Spank! achived.

At just short of 17 years of operation (really, was it really that long?) it is finally time to shut down.

Thank you - all of you who participated. You are awesome. You enriched my life, you made me a better person (yes, sappy by true), and I enjoyed supporting the site for this many years.


Yours, always -
