I’d expect thinspo to be gone. Self harm forum. Anything that’s considered “pro” harm

 

i could see that and wouldn't have a problem with it but let's say they get rid of accountability, then that would actually be a bad thing for me as the accountability forums have been helping me personally quit purging and try to be healthier with my choices in restriction

By security, do you mean they shall be militarizing against us?

I mean better protection against banned trolls trying to get back on, spam bots, things that help moderate.

Sounds like the space where many feel safe and comfortable will be monitored and censored from people outside looking in. Not necessarily all negative but im concerned about being judged unfairly...I'm disappointed however, I'm happy for admin and I understand the need to move on!

if you're over 18

 

Is there a way they can check? Or is this just going off the birthday you enter? I'm 18 so either way it doesn't affect me, but if I need to go put my birthday back in I'll go do that

Just what birthday you enter and obviously if you post that you're underage. You can really be anything you want online. It's the internet after all.

True, I weaseled my way on to forums that way, thankfully nobody found out- and it was just a Lion King website anyway. Lol

My guess is that anything that is not pro-recovery shall be attacked and dealt with. I seek no recovery, ever. Pro-ana for life.

I hope not too much is removed or else it will just end up like any other site on the internet. If we can't talk about ED related topics on an ED site we'll have nowhere else to discuss such things. I understand getting rid of anything that promotes harm but the line can be a little blurred sometimes because some things might be helpful to some users but harmful to others.
