Yeah as if it's going to charity. Companies don't just invest in fixing sites out of the goodness of their hearts with 0 profit, especially not one like this.

2 MPA forums worth of melodrama in one thread. I really SHOULD have bought popcorn. 

 

I keep refreshing the feed and there are multiple posts each, 68 people are here just chilling. I literally got a call for a job interview and all I could think about was how I was missing the action. So many different conversations and so many confused people, it's all a mess

Heres a fucking thought, if (as you claimed) you're just giving away the site for free why the hell are you not giving it to the mods instead so this place can be managed correctly?
It's absolutely clear that there is profit in here somewhere, and that they'll do everything to make this more profitable for them after the transfer.

We all get that you've never given a shit about the people here, but this is on another level of bullshit admin.

What's actually going to happen is the charity thing will be vague, if mentioned at all, and then the company will say hahaha fuck you and take the ad revenue anyway. I feel so powerless. I honestly don't know how I'm going to spend my days now. This site has stopped me from suicide. It's convinced me to open my eyes in the morning because I gotta check my notifications, lmao. I like how fucked up you all are. I don't want it sanitised, I don't want it to become more public, I don't want anyone messing with my personal private little community.

Good evening.

I am gonna tell you the same thing I told you a few years ago, when you let one of the new ‘’tech guys’’ in 2018 post with your own account, meaning, you gave that person full access: due to the nature of MPA, there are a lot of semi naked photos of our users, and full naked photos of our users, we even have users bending their ass on camera, and etc, and etc, and now you are going to give the forum completely to a bunch of (most probably straight) guys we don’t know. This is so uncomfortable, almost pervy, because we don’t know who these people are.

I understand that you might be tired after all these years and you want to give up and get some rest and get away from all of these. But giving a very busy forum full of vulnerable people to a bunch of normies straight guys, my dude let me tell you this is fucking scary. We are not exactly myfitnesspal here as you know, we have some very disturbed and sensitive people logging on, from all around the world, eating disorders as you may know by now go hand in hand with lots of other conditions. You should have closed us down completely, than give the site to a bunch of straight normies god knows what else they are. Even worse, they might monitor our content to give it to ‘’research’’ units around the universities or ed clinics and we become their lab rats without even knowing about it.

But having a bunch of straight guys normies handling the sensitivity of the selfies forum and the before and after forum, this is so fucking creepy man. You shouldn’t have done that, if you closed MPA completely people would have gone either to Annea in EDC either to Anamaguchi in Pancakes and at least these are not normies creepy tech guys.

What to say, once again like in 2018 all over again, these sound so upsetting and worrying, you know that your decisions affect and effect so many people, but I don’t think you realise the extend of it, or the complications of it. And maybe you just don’t care you just want out, you could have closed it down my dear, it would have been safer for the users, not to have it at all, than have it and being at risk from pervs and lab rats

Your concerns ignore basic international privacy laws and assume that their people are exclusively cishet males looking for a thrill. Presently VS yields to the strictest user siding privacy laws, those being a toss up between California and the European Union. The idea that they sell user privacy out like that not only gets the site nuked but also fines them millions of dollars for such a violation. As for the premise that their employees are a bunch of sexual predators. I honestly don't know how to relieve you of that notion. None of the vs techs I've spoken to have discussed their sexuality or gender identities with me. But in accordance with those privacy laws anyone who has personally identifiable photos can message me or the vs admin account which will be introduced tomorrow and those photos will be removed with no concerns if that is your wish. Same can be expected with regards to any post with legally protected personal information.

It is interesting that someone private messaged me the following, I will not post their account ID for their protection:

 

Sent Today, 05:30 PM

This has been in the works for weeks now, and was supposed to be announced several days ago. I've seen screen shots of the conversations between him and the mods.

And yeah, it's a sell-out. The site takes in approximately $40,000 a year in ad revenue, and the guy who's Admin (I've had his phone number for years, and have actually seen him on Youtube, at a trade show once) just wants to cash out.

He's peddled MPA to this VS company, who owns scores of other web forums, and milks them for their ad revenue. Forms for people who own BMWs and other sorts of hobby sites. He's convinced them that they need to get into the "Wellness" game, and so he's buffing up the site to fit that model. So it's really just all about money. Like most things these days.

So yeah, no more "pro" content, no members under 18, purging the site of all sorts of existing content, and despite what you may have read, don't count on all the mods sticking around to help him or VS with any of this. Some may, but some have been fed up with his bullshit for years now and will be leaving. And the follks from VS will be calling the shots now. People with no prior intrest in EDs at all.

I 100% feel you on this...I'm the same. This site has given me life and motivation in my darkest times to just keep....going. Keep trying. The idea that it's going to be in the hands of a company that has NO experience with mental illness sufferers is terrifying.

I'm going in for a face-to-face interview tomorrow! Phone interview actually went pretty well, though I was kinda half there and I'm already bad at phone calls. Buuuut the workplace just lost workers so they're really needing new ones, so I'm not too worried.

 

Also I'm absolutely excited to see how long this thread will get, I'm already seeing other threads being posted about this one so it's gonna be a hot topic for a while
