As to why he purchased the flat lining site, Tompkins says, “Buying the site was something that I had wanted to do for a while. It is part of porn history, and over the years has fallen on hard times content wise.”
“LukeIsBack (LIB) was once considered a top source for industry news and gossip. When the site changed owners a few years back, the very popular comment section was closed and commenters were deleted. One of the first things I did was unblock everyone.”
He continued, “While TRPWL and LIB will share stories, LIB will deal more with gossip, twitter beefs and showcasing talent.”
