“Halloween is the best time of year to test your mettle and see how scared you can get…and Knotts Scary Farm has always been a great place to do that…hell all haunted houses are a great way to do that. But its sad to see the company bend at the knee about their Fear VR: 5150 experience because of a few emails. But this was Knotts own fault, they gave in to demands a few days ago, and then they did this. All it does is prove that if you give in to the perpetually offended once, they’ll take you for everything you have.”
Perpetually offended, for somebody else…Never appeased…Always looking to find something to be offended over…
…Matt could just as well be talking about people who make up the sex abuse industry.
But then…like I’ve been saying for some time now…the sex abuse industry is just an older manifestation, of the “social justice warrior” mentality plaguing us all the worse today.
…It’s just moved beyond the confinements of it’s traditional obsessions [IE: what’s going on in everybody’s bedrooms and underwear].
The “normal people” are getting an unwelcome taste, of what MAPs have lived with much [or all] of our lives…and predictably…they don’t like it anymore than we MAPs have liked it.
No matter how it manifests…it’s all encroachment…it’s all abusive…it’s all diminishment and degradation, for someone else’s ego tripping…it’s all trouble causing stupidity…and it all just sucks.
Moral outrage should never be conceded too…And there should absolutely never be laws written, for the purpose of backing it up.
Hell…there needs to be laws against it, wherever it evolves into encroachment upon other people.

“Hundreds of British teenage boys had been duped into sending indecent images of themselves to what they thought was a teenage girl online. Many were blackmailed into sending more and more images, with chilling threats made against them by an unknown abuser.”
An ugly truth…is that being a manipulative douchebag, is quite a dangerous path for any MAP to be on.
…We could say, this guy is low hanging fruit…or a Darwin Award nominee…
…Fact is, he went bad.
There are some lines…if you cross them…it’s not a matter of if…but when…when will it catch up to you?
This case is a good example…of how they can track people down, even with tiny amounts of information.

“Are you ‘out’ to your ISP? Why or why not?”
My introduction to the internet was WebTV…Proxies were not an option…After a few years, I got a proper PC and went to AOL…After five or six years, I went to DSL with my local phone company.
For three or four years, I used Ghostsurf…which was fine for the time, since all I was doing [BL related] was reading and posting [on BoyChat]…That version eventually became obsolete, and I didn’t buy a new version.
I wanted to get back onto the common internet, because I’ve always had a thing for maintaining my own website…I just like doing it…and really missed it.
I’ve never had my ISP service terminated, over what I do online.
Theoretically, they could…but I’m not objectively violating their terms of service…And I only tend to interact with people who’ve initiated an interaction with me…or in places where I know it will be welcome.
I may be stern regarding certain beliefs and behaviors…but I never abuse, threaten or harass other people…And when I do offer a volatilely expressed piece…it’s published in a setting, where it is aimed at nobody in particular.
My ISP is still taking my money…They’re still providing service, despite that it’s been declining in value for a long time [I’ve thought about leaving them.]…And they know what I do, yes…A certain nasty someone who works there, just could not contain himself.
All this…despite that they have a policy stating, if anyone causes them too much trouble, they may terminate services.
I keep to my own spaces for 99% of my activities, and only argue lesser volatile issues, when “live” on other services…So, I guess I’ve not caused them too much trouble [and no trouble at all, was my goal].
I’ve been “out” again at least since I started blogging…about ten years ago. I’ve registered and paid for a few relevant domains, under my legal name.
Being this open, has opened up the possibilities to do a lot more…I’m hoping to do more, still.
Ultimately…they can still find you, even if you do use proxies…I reached a point, where I left that false security blanket behind.
It’s been stressful, because for the past four to five years, bad people have known who I am and where I live…But, I’ve stayed the course in the face of this, because rewarding them with cowardly retreat and relenting, is the last thing we should be doing…
…I suppose some will call that courage…or foolishness…
…Maybe I’m just epically stubborn.
This is one danger we face…It’s not enjoyable…It will change you…not always for the best…It’s a prolonged “baptism of fire”, of sorts…and it will definitely expose what you are made of, as a human being.
Various people here have gone through this general experience…Some have freaked out…Some have come through it, and maintained their level headed decency…Some have become bitter and abusive.
The fundamental questions to ask before doing anything…are “what do you want to accomplish?”…and “is it worth it?”
