Where did it all go wrong, a thread for people who miss real content


  • Okay so don't get me wrong we all know I'm as flirtatious as they come at times, but I used to enjoy engaging in stimulating discussions, music reccomendations, anime lists, philosophical debate. It seems nowadays that in the absence of some mods this site has become truly sordid in like a creepily negative way. We all have urges and sexual desire and the fun of engaging and forming relationships with strangers in any level is a draw to why any of us are here. But if I see one more post of pedobait or men looking for illegally young girls, discussions about fucking your own dad, teenage girl pro ana posts or any other shit that brings literally nothing but harm to those that engage of it I am going to gouge my own eyes out. When did the fun have to turn into triggering disgusting behaviour and what happened to anyone with an ounce of intelligence?


  • @Alicey2k A-freaking-men. How long has it been now? I reckon around 15 months (for me) since we used to thrive in an abundance of depth.

    I could never blame the peeps who have left for leaving, but I do feel that my optimism that the days gone by might return could be more than a little misplaced.

    If you want an explicitly direct answer, I'd say it was late 2019 when the site got hit by a slew of bots. It sometimes felt they were appearing and adding their repetitive spam posts faster than they could be reported, and it took a few months before the situation was under control.

    During that time they put many good people off (it was difficult to be constructive and contribute when 80% or more of the forum posts on a given page were sometimes from the same bot), and as for new potential members - what they saw disagreed with the decent ones, whilst the pervs and paedos lapped it up and stuck around. That had a knock-on effect, so when the bots had gone we still had some people here with the wrong idea of what the site was about... their presence seemingly legitamised the presence of even more inappropriate types who stumbled upon the site, and that element grew. A spiral had begun which could no longer be contained, especially as other members left in the spiral's wake.

    Now, most of us are tired and the circle continues. Most of the people interested in smart debate and conversation come and don't want to stay because they get hounded off by sex pests, and the perv contingent finds it a paradise and continues to grow.

    Not that, as you imply, there is anything wrong with a bit of pervation and depravity in moderation, and sure it's fun. But, please, let's none of us pretend there aren't a thousand or more other more important things in life.


  • @Alicey2k I completely agree with both you and @Matt_Aranha. I have seen many "eye roll" post topics let alone the pedo-bait and pro ana topics. I can't believe those 2 are even left up!!!


  • I haven't used this site for long and I don't use it much but I see what's your point. When I first started I used to see some interesting topics by some interesting people like Rei's art or cooking or someone posting YouTube vids or something. Now it's mostly senseless drivel.


  • I'm new and I was expecting more wholesome chats than randomers asking for ASL

  • @Sassy Literally, what happened to the mods and why do they leave those things up


  • @Alicey2k Ash was like the most active mod now that he ditched its kinda dead, The new mod recruitment recruited - guess what, all inactive mods. lmao


  • @Alicey2k @Lazz was great about cleaning up forums but had IRL things come up. He did say he should be back :crossed_fingers_medium_skin_tone: :crossed_fingers_medium_skin_tone: :crossed_fingers_medium_skin_tone:

    Miss the guy's quirky posts lol.


  • @Alicey2k Not very smart of you to look for some decent conversations and a level of intellect here in our glorious nation of tws. It's like entering a brothel, hoping to find Mother Teresa.


  • Also, you really can't expect intelligent people to approach you with Feminism and Climate change being your top interests.


  • @Alicey2k thank you! Finally someone has said sth about this shit.
    Also as fun as the sexual desires are, not all of us are here to experience them with strangers. Im myself only here for chatting for afew minutes a day. And just finding someone to talk to when i feel by my self. Anyways respect to your point of view

    You're gonna have to explain the purported correlation there for me...


  • @sup um bro you are literally insulting every good and bad person hereπŸ™„ .
    I got masters in mechanical engineering and im decent . Literally proving you wrong

    I may be cocky, edgy, straightforward or whatever you may call it but I'm honest with myself and the people around here. There's no need for me to act like a nice guy and say the loveliest things to be accepted here.

    First, your degree(s) are trash to me. They don't make you likable or a better person in my eyes. And just to "prove you wrong" Ill leave these screenshots here. I have no intention to embarrass you but to teach you a sweet little life lesson.

    that was a brilliant analogy, how dare someone downvote it ;-;

    If I wanted to, I would have explained it in the post itself.


  • @sup The level of intellect you speak of existed in the past, so it's normal to look for it. And my post was more highlighting the harmful sometimes illegal stuff that is posted here. Seems like the mods with brains jumped off a sinking ship and those that remain are quite happy dwelling in a cesspit of hateful bullshit. Thanks for your reply and I respect your opinion, but for someone who claims to not care if they're likeable (don't worry you aren't) you seem pretty insecure to reply as many times as you have in the way you have.

    What past are we talking about here? You've barely been here for what? 7 months? I have never encountered any signs of intelligence here whatsoever. Not from you, not from those pedophiles.

    Also, Stop pointing out the obvious. Just stop. It's the internet and illegal stuff gets circulated. You better be prepared or just stay out of websites like these. Find something more interesting or relevant to do while you're here for a short while than grumbling about pedophiles and sex addicts or whatever. You cant change them and you can't control what is being posted here. You're not the first one to protest about this issue.

    The mods have better things to do than "make a difference" on some random stranger websites And that too when they are not being paid for it. Post something funny, surround yourself with fun people, and enjoy your time. People like me thrive because of our "nobody gives a fuck" attitude on here.

    Lastly, you cant regulate the amount of bullcrap I utter. You're not that powerful yet, lady.

    Folk who aren't going to take the mod role seriously oughtn't accept it. It's not a status badge, it's a responsibility. That's why I've never gone for it. No denigration to the ones who do as much as they can, they've been fighting a battle with little support. It just seems to me to be somewhat sad that there are people who don't want the place to be safer, kinder, more altruistic. Without tackling bullying and "bullcrap" at this level, the world is never going to bust out of the rut it's in in time to save itself.
