Yeah, I only originally joined up in fact because I found out someone I dated had put a load of really embarrassing private information about me on here (of course without my consent) to get a laugh from the boys. Then I realised a load of people I know in real life were here, which made it even worse.
It was not dealt with well at all, and I had to do a lot of yelling at people to even get taken seriously or treat me like a human. I rarely posted on the old version of the site because people were so nasty- gratuitously nasty and spiteful for no reason. But patting themselves on the back because they weren’t builders wolf-whistling in the street or whatever.
When the new version was launched, the fact that you can see everyone’s entire post history made everyone way more accountable, and I started posting more often, and found myself treated a lot better.
(Still I guess a kind of bloody-mindedness on my part. Those nasty people think that the chat section of a national music site belongs to them and is their private club for being a dick? That can be changed.)
