A Serious Post!

So i watched a movie, okay, okay, let me finish. This movie was based on a true story.

It was about an internet killer.

It scared the crap outta me.

I mean, I think we as an Ep community should really protect the kiddos out there. Even each other! Because as a young 19 year old woman, I know that I would probably put myself in bad situations. With the ease of the internet and people feeling lonely, horny, etc, they resort to really bad stuff. Or do to the lack of money, they may put themselves in sketchy situations. The internet facilitates this. And suddenly people can hurt others anonymously. Sites have been closed due to the extreme sexual soliciting that goes on. It's time EP take care of this ****. I mean there's nothing wrong with sexual groups, I know i've posted sketchy, silly, pervy stuff, but the issue is that some people could really get hurt. Ep admin, do something...

I honestly rather see all sexual groups go away than see someone get hurt. Especially younger kiddos.

Let's protect one another.

I know this isn't a thing you can easily implement, but some things on EP need to change. I don't know necessarily how, but I think it's time to consider this.

We actually spend hours at a time talking about this. It's a very complicated issue and we argue constantly trying to find the right answer to this. It's hard to 'police' some of these things without stepping over one's right to freedom of speech. There are many moral and ethical issues about this. Please understand that we're not ignoring this.

Amen to that sistahhh.<br />

Awareness is indeed importante!

Protecting our members and especially the minors on EP is important to us and that's why we regularly work to improve and strengthen our filters. A minor who joins EP, automatically has filters on their account to help prevent them from accessing mature content. That said, you bring up a good point and helping raise awareness is important.<br />

We discourage members from posting/sharing private contact information for their own protection.
