We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Not at all, please don't worry about anything like that - our host was chosen with a focus on security first of course. We don't want our users (or ourselves) to be a target either. It just means that since they're not a huge, US-based host with a ton of employees, it can take longer to fix problems.
Hey everyone, I just wanted to pop in to give a short update. We absolutely want PULL to survive and realize that it has to be run by someone with a lot more time to do so. The host issues have been annoying, but our busy schedules haven't helped. To host a site like PULL, we only have a small selection of options, because even with all our rules, we're still the target of many DMCA claims, GPDR complaints and so forth. Meaning that our host turns many a blind eye to our content, and in exchange for that, we just have to accept that they're not the most reliable. Nyx and I have talked a lot about the future of PULL and have reached out to a potential new admin. Whatever happens, we're supportive of PULL thriving in someone else's hands and I'll do my best to assist with whatever hurdles arise when transferring the site, and protecting it from takedowns.
I'd like to remind everyone to keep the speculation realistic and also not to antagonize other users and derail the thread. If you're concerned about someone, please message a mod. A list of PULL mods can be found here: https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/staff/
I have checked all IP addresses used by that account. (Different IP addresses don't mean something shady is going on - it's common to cycle through several different addresses, many internet providers assign new ones regularly, or a new IP address is set while posting from a phone.) I have ways beyond IP addresses to dig into someone's background, although I can't specify what they are. Also, it's actually pretty easy to tell if someone's using a VPN. If you want to learn more, please feel free to DM me, but I don't want to derail the thread with technical discussions. This user is not behind a VPN, and their location doesn't match Mira's. They're not a native English speaker, which explains their grammar. I'm positive they're not Mira.
Hi everyone, I have checked out @Mizutama and they do not seem to be Mira. However, @Mizutama, please don't try to police the way other users express themselves. If you have an issue with the thread atmosphere, please report the relevant posts. Don't start a discussion about what is and isn't appropriate to say. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Also, don't ask for other users to summarize information you could just read up on. Everyone else did their reading too.
Read the rules. This is not up for debate. We're not gonna deal with the fallout for users who think they have to act as vigilantes and want asspats for it. Do what you want on your own time, but don't look for attention here if you do. That's what gets snowflakes all worked up and gives them fuel to complain about us harassing them. This forum is for gossip and discussion, not taking action and interfering with peoples' lives. Please drop this subject now.
