PrOvIdInG eVIdeNcE Of PedOPhILiA Is jUsT WItch huNtIng
holy jesus christ, imagine locking a thread where WELL KNOWN AND DOCUMENTED pedophiles are mentioned and calling it a "witch hunt." i guess maybe Spadez hasn't been around long enough to witness these things happen in real time (account says joined aug. 2017) but it's disgusting and irresponsible for someone to so flippantly discredit a genuine concern a lot of people have on here.
the join age is 13 and we've even had users who were younger than that. on a website that uses anonymity as a major point of the game, anything can happen with pedophiles pretending to be whoever they want to in order to solicit sex from minors. how many of your friends/acquaintances on this website are below 18 years of age? a good bit i'd guess.
it seems easy to protect yourself as an adult, but that's not always the case for younger people.
now please tell me how pedophilia somehow isn't a concern here.
You guys want to argue for pedophiles banned. But in my year and a half on the site I haven't seen anything like... in your face.
Sorry to say this but; nobody cares. Well no, you guys do. But the majority of the community has zero clues/experiences with this kind of matter. Of course, the evidence is there, and those people should be banned for those disgusting acts but... after we ban them what next?
Like is this rant fr just to get the... 4 predators on epicmafia banned? I'm kind of wondering why in my year and a half on the site i am barely hearing about this "huge controversy"
(But I really wish that there weren't so many comments shooting down the mod team. Like guys, it's not up to them. This is all admin territory. They moderate how many reports on this toxic website? Like they are spending their OWN free time just to keep this site going? Like fr. I know you all want change but you gotta put accusations in the right place and wording.)

Besides, most people who were called out are either already banned (bigpock and eris) or inactive(not sure about sammie, but I dont think she deserves to be called a predator nor banned) so I'm very curious on what brough this issue up. But yeah, this is pretty ancient drama that most people have no idea about.
at the end of the day this is just a game and everyone needs to just calm down and not be so aggressive and hostile.
last minute edit: this thread itself became what the mods wanted to avoid as well, a witch hunt except this time the targets were changed. so good job on that.
I might be more sympathetic to Sammie given to how much hate and insane harassment she had received over all of these years. She was a rather infamous cheater which started it all, but it was way over the top at times.
