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

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.
im screaming. HAHAHAHAHAHA

I forgot Plissken was a thing lmfaoooooooooo
As did I after I banished him.

It is terrible so many users accused me of being him which is simply not true.

Some users simply should not have access to internet capable devices!

Any reason as to why you said to dooze "silence, obese." on the Long game II thread? The effects of cyberbullying on ones mental health can be incredibly impactful.

So commenting on someone's weight is justified because they told you shutup in a joking matter? You aren't putting out the fire you make it bigger.

Are you accusing user dooze of being obese in real life? This is precisely the bullying I am seeking to eradicate.

What is so terrible is that user MotivationalLizard does not hold other users up to the same standard as he chooses to hold me to (likely because he is a great fan of mine).

Here is our lobby owner, user Alyssa calling multiple users "fatty":



Here is an entire thread that one of our own moderators, user dooze in fact, created to call me fat: https://epicmafia.com/topic/87998

Those who escalate casual friendly banter into full blown harassment deserve a visit to the electric chair

I agree entirely, user MeetTerry.

It is awful that user MotivationalLizard is choosing to focus on casual friendly banter instead of the vulgar and horrendous things that have been said to me. This is a form of victim-blaming and it should not be occurring.
JamalMarleyJun 13, 2020
And I am still waiting for user filko's apology after he victim-blamed me, accusing me of posting the hateful anonymous questions on my own profile.

I proved him wrong and now he is kicking me from his games because he does not want to offer me an apology for how awful that post of his was.

That is fine to admit yet user MotivationalLizard has a clear issue with commenting on other people's weight so it would not be surprising to me if he called for your head next. Very saddening.

Did not see the other comments. Sorry for not looking for the context. Didn't think that comment had context. I retract my comment.

I forgive you.

I would implore you, however, to ask questions if you believe that I have done something that is unwarranted rather than act holier-than-thou and accusing me of not being true to what I speak.

Here is further evidence that users are using peer pressure tactics and intimidation tactics to have me kicked from games for no reason:

There has been an increase in users coming into the great lobby of Sandbox and using homophobic slurs and generally being anti-LGBT.

This is another form of bullying that we cannot allow in our community.

I have filed the two reports against users that I have seen be hateful:

https://epicmafia.com/report/289369
https://epicmafia.com/report/289371

We need to put a stop to bullying and discrimination.
