Since the blog is lit, now would be a good time as any other to squash some of the misunderstands people have. A lot of this was already stated in the other blogs but I can understand that it might have been a little drawn out and totally lost because people came here very angry after watching the videos (sorry to say but they were mostly skewed to one side of the argument). Maybe some people just refuse to believe anything we have to say. Fine, fair enough. After all, it’s very clear not everyone can look at both sides. We will live with that. You can leave now. For those who want to listen, please read on.
It is very important to stress that we are 100% against predators using our platform or any platform to gain access to kids. This cannot be stressed more. There are a lot of rumblings that claim that we do not care. We care. There are others that say that we are just writing the blogs because we are defending the predators. No, we are not. We do not want them here as much as everyone else. They give this website a bad name, they scare away other legitimate users, they hurt people and they are just the scum of the Earth. WE DO NOT WANT THEM HERE.
So why did you write those blogs?
Again, we wrote those blogs because our staff were all deemed to be pedophiles in the original video that was removed by Youtube. Also, there were many (not all, but many) lies in it.
If someone accused you of being, probably the lowest scum on earth, and you knew it was not true, you would take it?. We are going to stand up to defamatory remarks.
We never said that MoneyMax’s video was ALL lies. We said it was dramatized and exaggerated. (If you don’t want to use the word “lies”) We are not going to go through the details yet again. They are in the other blogs so please read them all carefully with some of the evidence he presented to embellish his story. Many inaccuracies in the video which no Youtuber seems to want to address. For example: if someone told you that an entire building was on fire and someone committed arson. You arrive there to find it’s a kitchen frying pan that got caught on fire. You would be like, what? That’s a bit exaggerated. The fire is still dangerous but the way to get to that story is also dangerous as it could be defamatory to someone. We are NOT referring to the parts where he encountered a predator and brought them offline. Those most likely did happen. We hope he would never make something like that up considering he posted the predators photo for millions of people to see. When you have a channel with hundreds of thousands of subscribers (or millions), you would expect a little more responsibility in making the video and presenting the facts is all. Some of the subscribers hang by every word you say. It just felt like a subscriber grab to us and many others. We hope that has taught him a lesson for his next videos. Be more responsible.
We are 100% for the awareness of the issue of safety on the internet. It should and must be a topic of discussion. There are many weaknesses to the Internet. We have stressed safety on the website in numerous places: including the blogs and clearly visible pages throughout.
We 100% acknowledge that it is possible that predators are attempting to circumvent our systems to gain access to this website. Anyone can lie about their age. That is exactly what they are doing. They can play a 15 year old boy for an hour and try to bring a victim offline only to find they were really 50 years old. It’s happened before. We have never said that this does not or has not happened on this platform. In fact, in a blog dated back to 2018 we acknowledged it happened or could be happening.
This is always an uphill battle. We can put every available system and tool into our website, and the predators could still find a way around them. That is why we have the chat rules and chat safety page set up for users to double protect themselves. If these monsters are going to find a way in, then we need to find a way to prevent them from getting to us. Please take the time to read that page. Please continue to report them if they do admit they are overage or commit other illegal things. Please take some time to read the FAQ’s section as well.
We will also continue to do our part and promise to everyone that we will find other ways to improve on that. Some have already been implemented. Others are coming.
Let’s continue to bring awareness about this topic. Let’s be responsible with defamatory remarks. A lot of good has come out of this entire controversy and we hope this blog post clears up some of those misunderstands.
Stay safe and happy chatting.
