    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

  1. I apologise in advance for the wall of text but I wanted it to be as accurate as possible. Please forgive me if I sound like I'm lecturing, I'm just sharing my knowledge on the topic. And I don't think that being naive is a fault or anything.

    So, first of all there are different themes and aspects to Felix's videos that might look like they're not in relation with each other...but they are. The main example of that being his strong familiarity with incel culture, down to the extensive slang they use etc. Now, it's hard to associate Felix to incels: he's reasonably good looking, rich, (considered) funny, has a girlfriend. If anything, he represents all incels aspire to be. But what incels are actually about is a general view about the world (getting there in a sec), not just poor looks and basement-dweller lifestyle. A set of beliefs that encompasses not only the role of women in society, but also race and how it affects (according to them) your value as a person. Basically, it's safe to say that a huge chunk (let's say the majority) of incels at the very least is completely okay with white supremacism. If you've ever stumbled upon incel sites/subreddits/4chan/8chan you know what I'm talking about. Felix has extensive knowledge about it, and it's just not superficial knowledge, things you came to learn out of morbidy curiosity. He shares too many of the same views and nudges at that audience CONSTANTLY, except the casual viewer doesn't realise he does. Even by just visiting his subreddit, chances are most suscribers post on questionable subreddits as well. Premise: I'm not an SJW (just in case people want to use that argument against me) and I'm not a fan of everything the left say and does. I think with my own head and I'm guided by my own morals, but I don't condone discriminatory behavior.

    Felix doesn't just merely attack feminists (like that time he laughed about women wanting to breastfeed in public and how he did not understand that - just an example). He doesn't simply call out "twitch thots". It's undeniable that he mostly focuses on women and he goes at it with a passion. I don't care if the target is a girl on Dr. Phil or Tana Mongeau or whatever. I'm just saying that, even if he "jokes" about men as well, it's always different when it's about women. There's a lot of body-shaming, and a lot of implying that women aren't that smart. Also, in case people haven't gotten it yet, the whole "respecc women" thing is not an actual encouragement to respect women (I swear there's people convinced of that). We could call it a "joke" if you want, a joke that got incredibly old and that appeals to a certain audience a bit too often. You know what's Felix for incels? It's a red-pilled based Chad. Even Marzia represents everything an incel would want for themselves: she gives off this "prude" vibe, never steals the spotlight to the man, her interests are very girly etc. (there's many things people got wrong about Marzia as well, but I'm trying to be soft on her on this thread because I don't want you guys to judge this post based on that...refer to her thread for more info). Women are objects to incels, they don't value their personality at all and they're not ashamed to say it. And if you rebel against it/have opinions you're suddenly labeled as a "bitch". And by the way, I can't believe how many people condoned Felix calling J. K. Rowling a "bitch" on video, only because she dared to point out that playing nazi is not funny, and not a "joke". But why am I surprised? Felix's fans insulted his own mother when she posted an empowering picture for women on her IG.

    It's not a coincidence that incels are more often than not mild white supremacists at best. Even their slang reflects that, both as a way to judge women or even as self-hate. Example: "I'm an ethnicel, is it over for me? How can I lookmaxx despite my skin color?" And funnily enough, Indians are especially targeted. I mean, I'm not an idiot, there are many jokes at the expense of Indians like that one facebook meme "Hasan is not my best friend anymore" or something like that, but when you put two and two together you realise that Felix's are not isolated jokes, there's a pattern to it, and they appeal to that precise audience, the "spergs" on 4chan as you guys said ("spergs" is incredibly offensive by the way, even if it IS accurate to associate Asperger's syndrome with all of this in certain cases. But throwing around the term in such a derogatory way is not okay. Autism is no joke, and I doubt you go around calling people "downs" and getting a laugh out of it). Felix saw the opportunity with this whole T-series thing and took it. Doing collabs with Indians or posting apologies for damage control doesn't mean he's not aware of what his doing or at least he doesn't care about it. Incels love this kind of stuff because the perspective of redirecting their insecurities and shaming people for their ethnicity is very appealing to them, it's how they function.

    Incel communities have increasingly become more extremist and focused on violence in recent years.[34][35][36] This has been attributed to various factors, including influence from overlapping online hate groups[2] and the rise of the alt-right and white supremacist groups. Antisemitic beliefs are also regularly found on incel forums, with some posters going so far as to blame the rise of feminism on a plot masterminded by Jews to weaken the West.

    This brings me to another thing I wanted to discuss and that I feel has been misinterpreted: if you've ever heard about the whole symbolism behind Kekistan and Pepe, you need to know that some incel websites like Incelistan mirror that, reinforcing the association between the two. Also wanted to stress that yes, Pepe started out as an innocent meme, then was used as a mascot for voters of Donald Trump, but is now a proper white supremacist symbol, along with the Republic of Kekistan etc. People should put things into context, as Felix ironically reminds us. If the "coincidences" are so many that excusing him makes you look like a fool, maybe you should reconsider your "opinions".

    In conclusion, I don't think Felix will ever go around shooting people or is even a hardcore neonazi. As I said, I think he does experience mild feelings of racial and gender superiority and more or less consciously uses his platform to "joke" about it. Which is wrong in itself, but the actual problem is that there are actual white supremacists out there who are more serious about it and connected the dots more than people on this thread ever did. Felix IS part of the problem, and by supporting him, even just because you're not very knowledgeable about this dark side of internet culture, you're contributing to it as well. I wouldn't give him the benefit of the doubt because he's apologised so many times that it's hard not to see that as damage control. And I wouldn't certainly state that "it's all jokes"! Jokes like this are for when you're playing Cards Against Humanity in the living room, not to be broadcasted to an audience that you're 100% aware of appealing to.

     

    Can you show some receipts for some of this? I know you are just explaining stuff that most of us are already aware of, but some of the things you mentioned are things I've never seen PDP do, like the bodyshaming part. And the thing with his fans insulting his mother is also something I've never heard of, so if you do have screenshots or can link to somewhere that does then I would love to see it cuz thats fucked up.

    Lmao my reaction once I saw this.

    For those who have never played Overwatch, they have introduced a "workshop" feature so that you can basically mod the game (I think, I'm not good with explaining these things). Anyway, seems like with this feature you might be able to bring back Mercy's old ult, which is most likely why Aria suddenly decided to come back and make Overwatch videos. 9_9

  3. I don't think this is a really unpopular opinion, mostly a suggestion. But I really think we should make a separate category for community-threads (such as blackfishing, slavaboo etc). I feel like the threads talking about these communities rarely focus on few specific online personalities, and tbh it just doesn't fit in with a category of threads that are supposed to focus on individual online personalities. I know KF has a similar system and I just think it would be better to keep the community focused - threads in a separate category from the others.

  4. heard about her from the pokimane video she made, all I know is that she is a titty streamer who has been banned from twitch multiple times (no clue why). Lots of people say she is just trolling. To be honest I can never tell when she is being serious or not, if it's all an act then she is good at acting ngl.

    She got arrested at some event. But I don't know the whole context behind everything. There's another video that is 1 hour long that might explain it but I don't have time to look through that rn so I leave you with this.

  5. You havent nnoticed most young weeaboos who go to Japan end up in Visa marriages or sex work? Its not easy to just up and move to another country but these girls are desperate and will do anything to live out their delusional fantasies other than work hard for it.

     

    What does this have to do with the topic? Did you even read Mikans response?

  6. Huge respects to Mikan for coming here and clearing things up. Once again, no one here is shaming you for it.

    Reading your response makes me realise that we are very similar, and I can understand that in a young age and stuck in a toxic enviroment can affect your mental health badly. I’m not good at coming up with good things to say, just know that you’re not alone.

    I know PULL may not have the best reputation, so I understand if it feels scary to come on here. But I think you ’re very brave, people here are very respectful once you get to know them.

  7. there's really nothing wrong with sex work and I can partly understand why Mikan didn't want to reveal it. Mikan seems like the type of person who wants to be seen as "wholesome" and "kawaii", and if her fans find out she used to do sex work, that image would be ruined.

    At the same time, it's disappointing to see that she wasn't being fully honest about how she saved up. She really built up this "hardworking girl" image. We don't know how much money she actually made tho.

    I also don't think we shouldn't remove the things you guys found. If Mikan is going to lie about all of this, then we're going to need those screenshots. PULL is an evidence based website after all. I say we should put it under a spoiler.

    I see where you are coming from, PDP has a controversial history which has most likely attracted the wrong people. I already said before that I hope Felix will tone down on some of his edgy humour after this, and seeing that post is disappointing because I want to believe that his community is better than that. From what I've seen they are very respectful despite the edgy humour, and seeing that post is disappointing.

  9. The argument is getting way out of hand here. I think we can all agree on that PDP is not responsible nor has he encouraged this shit.

    You can have whatever opinions you want on his humour and his fanbase, but I can say as someone who’s been to his subreddit many times that the community is far from being any alt-right. You guys keep mentioning Shapiro as some form of evidence, when everyone knows that guy is a joke and no one takes him seriously.

    The shooter was motivated by 4chan and 8chan. That’s where he linked his stream and everything. He is using memes on purpose to make the media angry. Hate to say this but it’s disappointing to see you guys are falling for exactly what the shooter wanted.

  10. I'm back after doing some thinking. I feel like I probably sounded like some huge WK earlier and that's embarassing. Anyway, after the last two incidents with the meme, I definetly agree on that felix needs to tone down. After this, we will definetly not be hearing the "sub to pewds" sentence any longer, because it is now related to big tragedy. I hope Felix understands this and can finally shut down the meme and possibly ban it in his subreddit. Felix himself may not care much about T-series passing him, but his fanbase has cared about it way too much, to the point where it's just ridiculous. He has taken this incident very seriously, and I hope he continues that way by ending the meme for good. I still don't think he is responsible for this, but he has almost 90 million people following him now and I hope this makes him realise how big of an influence he has on people.

    OT: Was KF mentioned by the shooter too? Their website is going crazy and they have a message stating they're not responsible and stuff like that.

  11. Felix doesn't actually care if he's not number one on youtube any longer. It only ended up becoming a meme and his fanbase is pushing it really hard. He has already said multiple times that he doesn't actually care that much. Because of the latest incidents I don't think he even wants to continue the meme because of how far it has gotten.

    Sadly enough, one guy can't control his fanbase. Just stating in a video "unfollow me if you're this and this" is not gonna do anything. Any big influencer can attract shitty people. I don't see the reason in bringing up the old drama of him because he has already learned his lesson from those.

    I'm gonna leave before it gets too heated in this thread. You can have whatever opinions you want on him and I know I can't change that. But my own opinion stands on what I've already said. I pray to the victims of this shooting, rest in peace.

  12. Changed the title, I don't mind changing it again if needed. Just lemme know if there's anything else you want me to add or edit.

  13. The post is misleading

    First is that Aria didn't draw the art, it was Seraphy-chan.

    https://www.deviantart.com/seraphy-chan/art/C-Blue-petals-661781842

    Second is that in the DA page of the work it says that the second image was used as a reference, requested by Aria herself.

    The original artist is Wakuraba (who seems to have closed his pixiv)

    https://www.zerochan.net/542673

    Funny enough there is the links to Aria's DA

    https://www.deviantart.com/dulcetrefrain

    Who seems to have gone in hiding everything(probably knowing sooner or later someone will find out).

    Aria did some artwork, there was an account called sacharinefantasies on instagram who had all of her drawings, it was one of the first things she deleted from the whole Reworkmercy backlash.

    Also did anyone see that she is rebranding herself as saccharinebeats? Both in twitter, youtube and patreon it's the new name she is going for.

     

    Ah I see, I should’ve looked it up more then, but good to know!

  14. Is no one gonna question if the person making that claim is legit??? I thought PULL was evidence-based in a way.

  15. Just wanted to post here because Taylor said in her latest video that MC contacts the girls before posting but this is NOT TRUE.. I know because I WAS POSTED ON THERE. I only found out after people told me. 

     

    Do you have anything to show that can prove this? Sorry if it’s harsh but I’m not going to blindly believe a random statement like that, people can say whatever they want on the internet nowadays. If it’s true then I’m sorry that happened to you. But it’s a rule on PULL that we don’t state things about the snowflakes without showing evidence of it, and it’s hard for me to believe you if there is nothing to prove your statement.

  16. How is SSSniperwolf even nominated for "best gamer" when she hasn't uploaded any gaming videos in months + has a history of cheating in video games. Hell how is she even nominated for KIDS choice awards with all the dirty thumbnails she has??? Wouldn't be surprised if she paid her way in.

  17. I don't understand how people can compare pewdiepie to the alt-right, I really don't see the connection. He did shit that he deserved to be called out for of course, but he clearly understood that what he did was wrong and learnt from it. So I really don't understand how people can throw around the alt-right word so easily when other influencers have done way worse. 

    And the whole vox thing was just a huge reach, the journalist even tried to claim that a random player walking past him in a video game was legit proof, like come on... 

    I do understand how the "sub to pewds" thing is getting really boring now tho and I couldn't care less if t-series actually pass him by now. But it amazes me how dedicated and big his fanbase is, he is clearly still one of the most popular youtubers out there.

  18. I think one of the biggest mistakes Aria did was to have the same username as her social medias. It's a unspoken rule that you never use the same username on gossip websites as the ones you use on social medias. Mostly because if you're unlucky someone could track you down, but also if you have a youtube channel with many subscribers people are easily gonna find you here.

    But also, if you make a name for yourself on both youtube and PULL and get called out for snowflakey behavior, everyone is gonna know exactly who you are and it will just be embarassing. This is why she is acting like a victim, I wonder if she thinks we are the bad guys now? 

    So much for bragging about how people contacting you must not be regulars on PULL, because you weren't aware of this despite being here for quite a long time....
