    When I became a member 5 years ago ,

    it was awesome back then. Because members used to chat instantly, post confession, etc. I miss those days. Oh and no fake members.

    When censorship trumped freedom of expression

    EP became a pale glimmer of what it used to be. If we only hear the experiences of peoples that EP oversight approves of, the posts that drew others to the website will not be posted and read, and the website will continue to die. If they do not get smart enough to figure this...

    When me got here Back in 2013 Ep had

    helpful staff And the bot let you edit posts Before they violated rules And there were many caring Now ep is the opposite And no external links took shields Shields needed to defend views And a reply to a post is free to be jumped on by anybody And staff...

    I miss the OLD EP. I miss when I 1st Joined Ep when it was very easy to make friends, and not worried if someone is scamming you or not. I miss when we could spend hours commenting back and forth on one story. I miss that when a friend was going through a hard time, everyone was...

    The new EP is so terrible.

    Everything is censored and children run rampant. I miss being able to post and say anything I wanted. And why would they even allow 13-15 year olds on this site??? I HATE the new EP with a passion and all if these so-called "improvements" can go to hell.

    I miss it soo much that I really feel like

    crying. This place made me feel so much better before but that's gone for good. I don't even recognize this place anymore. It's really sad when this place made me feel great and now I feel like I'm in a blackhole here.

    I was just attacked by a young troll

    who private messaged me for the sole purpose of picking a fight... At first he wanted sympathy, suggesting that people were picking on him... Then started making judgmental comments about others... I suggested that he shouldn't judge if he didn't wish to be judged in return and...

    Gosh what happened to this site?

    I found this site a couple years back and it was so helpful. It was during a really bad time in my life and everyone on here was so kind and willing to help. Now nothing I write gets any notes, I rarely get a helpful answer to any of my questions, and the only friend requests I...

    A Shell I arrived here about four years ago,

    at what would become the tail end of Ep's heyday. It was the most original site on the Internet, & though I'm not a fan of social media of the Facebook variety, the anonymity of this site drew me in. Instantly I was hooked & quickly found friendship & giggles among the ragtag...

    Every year it gets worse

    and worse . When I first joined it was fun and I had a good time chatting with sincere people . That was three years ago but it seems like 20. Now this place is nothing of what it used to be, the people are not like the older members . Mostly I have really dull and boring chats...

    I think about leaving on a regular basis.

    EP isn't the same as it was 5+ years ago... I've been a 4 year veteran on this account. I deactivated my account prior but came back to... this. When it gets too much to bare, I leave for months at a time. You had one job, EP - one job. SMH. x

    I know I've made a post about this in the past,

    but I really do miss when I first joined this site. There were many, many people on this site when I first joined. So many people with many different interests, it was almost impossible to not make a friend on here! 80% of the people on here had such positive energy and the...

    It is not exactly the old EP

    that I miss, well maybe I do .. But I also miss the way I used to be with many EPers here, some of them have left, some of them are still here but we sort of lost that special connection we used to have. This all probably caused by a mix of the fact that people change over the...

    I miss the old EP , it was much better

    than the recent EP and people I've come across. All the people I knew before are gone . The people I got to know this year are not really friends except for only a few . Most of the men I chatted with turned out to be mean jerks . I'm addicted to this hell hole and I can't get...

    I went wild after I joined here 2 years ago .

    It was so fun and I never got bored . People were more interesting and I felt comfortable , well maybe a little too much . Anyways the first friend I made was a pathetic man from the UK . We talked for months and he was a total waste of my time . Stupid me. Then I met this guy...

    Old School

    Sometimes I log onto EP and reminisce on the old days of EP. The days when everyone was accepted with generic avatars, and blurred pictures. The days when a confession forum would attract support, and offer avenues to help with any issues that you were facing. Finally I miss...

    EP took down my profile picture. I appealed it, but I'm still pissed, hence this rant..The original profile pic is really me. Or part of me - my shoulder and hand, and a little bit of neck and cleavage..I see more skin at a beach or swimming pool - including my own. That profile...

    Dear EP friends, old,

    new, and the ones who are not here anymore: I miss the old days when everyone posted on each other's whiteboards before they PM'd them. I miss the old days when people asked about your status, asked about your stories, asked how you were. I miss the old days when I had all my...

    I first discovered this site in early 2012 (a

    different name then). I was shocked when I decided to try it again recently. How can you talk openly about your experiences if everything has to be PG rated? It's not the same.

    This place is the total opposite of what it

    used to be . It's boring , no interesting people to talk to , dull, etc . Trying to get some fun out of here is like finding a treasure chest .

    I hate what EP has become

    and because of that I'm 99% sure that I'll be leaving it. Maybe it's not EP's fault, maybe I've changed but either way, EP $uck$ (there's another reason right there). It used to be such a community atmosphere with real adults and even most of them were somewhat "normal". It...
