It is interesting that someone private messaged me the following, I will not post their account ID for their protection:
Sent Today, 05:30 PMThis 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.
And as you said, a "Wellness" site for people with EDs, that's named My Pro Ana ?
You just gotta laugh about that.
"Our ability to relax is in direct proportion to our ability to trust ourselves and life."
Not sure if any of what was written is true or not, it is just what I received in my MPA mailbox.
Maybe off topic but I hate the word "wellness" and every single grifter, shill and hippie crystal healer associated with it
