FNN column 'Ask Papabear' jumps ship after posting delays
The greymuzzle's letters of advice cover both traditional and furry-specific topics, including the nature of furry fandom, personal relationships, dealing with adversity, and "coming out" as a furry.
Grubss' previous host appears to be on hiatus, having added no content in over a month. 771 pieces (aggregated and original) were posted last year, but submissions declined sharply after July 2011, and slowed to a trickle late least year.
Update (17 May): Looks like FNN was listening; several new stories have been published.
'Papabear' explains the purpose of the column on his site:
Why a column specifically aimed at furries? Well, Papabear believes that, while many furries experience problems familiar to everyone, we have sort of a unique spin on things. Furries can often feel ostracized by family, friends, and at school for being who they are.
Sometimes, because of this, they don't feel understood and need some advice from someone who has been around the blocks a few times, often while wearing a fursuit!
Well, that's me! Papabear! I don't claim to possess the wisdom of the ages, but I certainly know a thing or two and can help you with many common issues. If I don't know the answer, I'll try and find someone who does!
The new site is still using template header graphics, but is open for new questions.
