    I Know....

    I completely agree with everyone who is desperately clinging to the ideal of what EP is supposed to be. I've only been on here for a few months, but I can see that there is a definitely difference bettween older members (older as in having been a member longer, not age) and...

    I Would But

    I have no idea what that was. I would ask EP Support, but I don't think they know either.

    The longer you stay here, and the more well known you are, the less you are able to write. I found this out with my second account. I shared something that was quite destressing and painful for me to share, but I shared it and got **** for doing so. Just because...

    I Remember When I 1st Joined Ep….

    I remember when I 1st joined EP, I remember why I wanted to join, and why I had stayed here, not because I was addicted *like I am now* but because the people here were so loving, and so supporting, they actually cared about the members here. I think a LOT of people forgot to do...

    Its Too Share Feelings, Thoughts And Ideas

    with no inhibitions.  Nothing more, nothing less.  That's how I see it.  As an experiment in limitless communication.

    The Original Purpose To Me

    Is to share experiences and get to know others like me. I found this website while googling wicca and when I found this website I was glad to see that there are others here like me. I am really glad I found this website. I want it to be for what I wanted it to be. Not for hooking...

    My Favorite Corner In The Virtual World

    I have been an Epeep for exactly two years and it has made a great difference in my life. I log on almost everyday and I can say that it is in general a positive experience. However, it saddens me when I see the abuse and misuse some posters have given this site. I am still here...

    Although I Think Even The Staff Has Lost Sight Of It's Original Purpose

    The Experience Project's motto (at least one of them) is, 'As the world's largest living collection of shared experiences and the premier passions-based network, experience project is a comfortable and supportive place for individuals to share and connect with others around...

    The Origins Of This Site

    Most members have lost track of what the reason of Experience Project is. Well, here is the story. Experience Project was created a couple of years ago as an escape, mostly for women, specially mothers who needed someone to talk to about what happened in their everyday lives...

    Dystopia

    I used to believe censorship here was a necessary evil affecting the vilest comments only. Obviously any censoring power becomes greedy and this is what is happening here too.

    Still Holding Out For the Continuing Mission

    I still hold out and cling to the original purpose and mission of EP. That purpose is support and an open forum amid other things. While I am frustrated at the ease with which so many members have been able to hijack if not outright derail EP's mission, I'm still trying to...

    What Was That Again?

    I guess I'm not lucky enough to have been a member when EP was 'good', but it seems to be getting worse daily and I don't see any EP staff doing anything about it. Are there EP staff? It almost feels like this place has been abandoned, the creators fleeing in terror at the...
