Greetings, users.

For many years this lobby has been plagued with toxicity and players that bully and harass other users. In the past week, I have been told to get cancer multiple times, I have been called an ape and a subhuman dog due to my race, called the R word, the N word, amongst other wildly hurtful names. This, of course, is not appropriate and should not be happening in this lobby. If you ask the people that bully me why they do it, they do not have a valid answer, it is because it is the social norm to harass me for who I am and it is incredibly saddening.

The users who perpetuate this hate and negativity in this lobby clearly have underlying problems, perhaps some issues at home in which they feel powerless, so they must take it out on kind users like myself and attempt to regain some sense of control in their lives, even if it is only on EpicMafia.

The effects of cyberbullying on ones mental health can be incredibly impactful. We have seen many users who have left this site because of how much unnecessary hate they were receiving. We have also seen many people take their lives due to the cyberbullying that they were victimized by. I will not be one of those people despite many of you begging for me to kill myself, to self-delete, to quit this website.

While the moderation team in this lobby may stand by and allow it all to happen and even perpetuate it themselves, I am taking a stand against bullying and dedicating my time on this website to fighting against this wretched act.

The Holy Church of Jamal has been about promoting positivity and inclusivity for years, but this is not enough anymore. We need to be standing together to actively be anti-bullying and calling out users who are making comments that are not in accordance with the values of our lobby. We need to be filing reports against these people and allowing their sanctions to be a learning experience for them, letting them know that words can hurt and they need to be conscious of that.

Will you partake of that last offered cup?

Believe in the power of positivity, believe in uniting this community together, and join the Holy Church of Jamal to fight the injustices occurring in this lobby: https://epicmafia.com/topic/84480

There is no persona, this is another common attack on me as if I am not a real person. Why would I not care about the health of this community when I am being victimized by the toxic members perhaps the most out of anyone?

The actions of the few that have posted on this thread thus far have proven my point about the toxic culture in this lobby.

The Holy Church of Jamal is no joke. Since my arrival on this website, the people have seen me as a beacon of hope to get rid of the evil puppeteers on the website such as the Clique, which I certainly did.

I am the kindest user and I do not act as though I am above anyone else.

I honestly feel like this is you trying to promote your “church” through very serious problems. Your solution just doesn’t fit with the situation. I was beginning to see hope while reading this announcement. All I got was disappointment.

My Church is a sanctuary for all and a community for all. Many of the users in the Church have been outcasted from the inner circles of Sandbox and understand my pain as they have also been bullied.

The Holy Church of Jamal is working tirelessly to determine ways to eradicate the toxicity in this lobby. If you have suggestions, we would be happy to have you join us on our quest.
