Reposted from another thread, best to have it here.
Holy smokes..that was an unexpected thing to read. Not sure where else to post this, so we'll put it here. I've been here for many years, though I'm not a huge contributor, I'm often here at the end or beginning of my day 3-4 days out of the week..so here's to Alex/Wu and all he's done to keep this community up and running.
Take care brother, while we may not have known each other personally, we definitely had at least one common interest. In your creating this site and these forums, I've been able to explore an inner passion of mine, which I may never have bothered with if not for you. Thanks for all that you've done in keeping this site up and running for so many years, you will be dearly missed by many.
Rest in Peace Wu, and deepest condolences to your family and loved ones.
I've been reading Wu's since 2003. This is the first foot fetish community I discovered and also the only one I ever regularly returned to. It defines the online fetish experience for me. I'm very thankful to Wu for that.
May he find plenty of beautiful feet in the next life.

Best wishes and sincere condolences to Wu & his family and friends during this time.
I never spoke to the man directly on here I don't believe but I can't even begin to express the respect, gratitude and admiration I have for him for running this site so efficiently and effectively for such a long time. This place has been around pretty much since the beginning of the internet generation, it's stood the test of time and had a profound impact on the foot fetish community both in offering quality content as well as comforting interaction that's made so many more confident & comfortable in coming to terms with the foot fetish side of themselves in such a way that they can embrace it as a gift from God that can be a cool asset to having going for ones self rather than some kind of curse that one should be ashamed of or try and hide.
Wu is a true pioneer and self made legend in the foot fetish community and should always be respected and remembered as such. Thank you for all that you've done for us all good Sir.
Hopefully he's up there in Heaven being treated to a buffet of Angel's feet as we speak. Hopefully the site will stay strong, live on and evolve & exist successfully in his memory going forward, but regardless of what happens to the site, this run he had with this site and the positive things this site and he himself has done for the foot fetish community as a whole is nothing short of astounding and will never be forgotten.
Well, what can I possibly say? I feel like I just got kicked in the gut. I can't begin to express in words just what this forum has meant to me over the years, and I'm not even going to try, because it won't be fitting.
I do regret not meeting Alex in person. I remember one of our last phone conversations, some years ago, where I told him that if he ever got around to coming to New York, everything was going to be on me, and I not only meant it, I kept trying to convince him to do the road trip. It was not be, and 'll never get the chance to thank him in person for all he has done for me. Godspeed my friend.
While I may not have had as close a relationship with Wu as many of you have, it is still heartbreaking to hear of this news. This site has been a major part of my life since my early adulthood, and hearing about this is like hearing about the passing of your favorite teacher, or gym coach. I've always looked up to the man for what he has done for us, and how this community has helped me accept and embrace my fetish.
Thank you, Wu. Thank you for being there for me, and for everyone else in the fetish world. We will all miss you dearly.

Sad news, I've been a member since 2003 and visitor almost daily. Wu and the moderators have run a world class site. I hope someone will take up the reins and continue this awesome site.
