JamalMarley's Announcement129

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

If you rewatch the Spy Kids trilogy you'll notice there's always only one set of footsteps from Carmen carrying Juni.

I mean whether Jamal is annoying or a bad person or whatnot the way a few of you are jumping to defend racial based attacks is messed up.
i cant speak for anyone else but my insults aren't/weren't based on race
fun fact, calling someone an ape is in poor taste and is very racially charged :-)

I'm not surprised by that awful opinion. It's the worst one not counting the fake one they did after that movie that no one ever saw.

Anyone who enjoys a movie about an uppity white-passing ginger latino child must have plenty of terrible opinions they have no problem sharing.
i enjoyed the whole videogame thing, i do not take race into account when watching movies, specially in movies when it's not relevant at all (Also isn't him in all spy kids movie? why is that relevant when talking about the 3rd one?)

The third movie is specifically about him retiring and letting everything go to crap. Did we even watch the same movie? That comment you posted is completely void of cultural perspective! Shameful.

Lol, tbh the outside of videogame scenes were pretty boring i only care about the rest

Jamal has gone through a few iterations centered around making surface-level statements meant to be slightly inflammatory and then when people took the bait, he proceeded to slam them over the head with surprising intelligence.

Initially he’d post about celebrities, gossip, and overweight people. The last topic really struck a chord with some. Through 2016 Jamal became very disliked because he proclaimed to be working on exposing the Clique, which depending on who you ask is either a cabal of users who had ill intentions for the site back then, or something Jamal made up. This is also when Jamal took on his Trump-pattern of speaking.

Jamal’s remarks have fluctuated in their aggression over time. I would say that he was at his most aggressive in 2016 and has since mellowed out. I do not deny the effectiveness of his posts or the offensiveness of his posts, however, and note that he still says some things that other users will definitely find inflammatory (his “photographic devices” catchphrase, for example.)

He is mostly hated nowadays because of multiple transgressions and misunderstandings never really being explained, accepted, or forgotten. Some people even blame him for the Plissken ordeal, which is naive.

Ultimately, people hate Jamal because their friends hate Jamal; this is ironic because that’s the kind of behavior Jamal claimed he was trying to destroy when he went after the Clique.

Let's hope user Nakhhash is prosecuted as needed and that moderators and the community do not show bias in this injustice!

Truthfully? My faith in certain moderators on the moderation team is being restored.

Yesterday I filed a report against user Nakhhash for calling me a subhuman dog and an ape and telling me to get cancer and this was deemed a no violation. I was absolutely flabbergasted. Today, the moderation team looked at that report and switched their verdict which gives me hope that real change could come about on this website.

Whether or not you intended it resort to a different insult. This isn't going to be tolerated being said, your original post was deleted.

Everyone here is toxic. I said "everyone is toxic" on lobby wall and idk why im getting hate from everyone. They hate me for who I am, they are just sheople who have no reason to hate me whatsoever even when I antagonize anyone who comments on my posts >:(
Evidence: The users who perpetuate this hate and negativity in this lobby [ad hominem] [post hoc]. 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 (Examples?). We have also seen many people take their lives due to the cyberbullying that they were victimized by (has someone on epicmafia killed themselves due to the harassment? or is this a generalization?). I wont let you bulli me.

Mods bad, bullying bad.

Church of Jamal. Make epicmafia great again.

Great news, users.

User filko was correct in saying that an Administrator may reveal anonymous questions on one's profile and she has been so kind as to help me.

Feast your eyes upon this revealed question with hateful comments, which was previously anonymous:

I long for your apology, user filko.

I need to delete this post too, please do not post images or links to images that show any sort of slurs. I've quoted the rest of your post to keep it in-tact as well as included the report with the image(you're free to share the link to the report), but please don't post the image directly as it's against the rules.

I don't get this announcement tbh, isn't this just advertising your group which has been around for a while now? I thought it was gonna be something new.

MeetTerry supports JamalMarley's efforts in seeking justice against those who use harmful speech (that's violence btw) against innocents.

Users D1pshit and LastProphet are two of the most recent examples of members of our community that have left us due to this community's toxicity.

I have never said a user has taken their life due to EpicMafia and I am not sure if there has been one, but cyberbullying has well documented effects, I discussed a recent case in Japan earlier on in this thread.

I am no longer going to be passive, user luis4rod. Passively promoting positivity simply does not work and that has become clear.

Everyone who cares about this community must actively challenge the cyberbullying on this website. So many users do hateful things just because their friends do it.

It should not take an EpicMafia user killing themselves to make a change but I fear that it is only a matter of time before that happens with the current way this community is operating.
