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.
Actually I forgot to add this (I started my post mentioning social anxiety), well said. Social anxiety has become another "quirky" trait a lot of influencers use, and in the process they make it worse for people who genuinely suffer from it like you. What they don't know is that covert narcissism is often mistaken for social anxiety (not in your case of course). There's pleny of articles about that and I find it interesting.
Actually I think this is a great idea. If that makes sense, it's more about the red of the downvotes alone that unconsciously makes you think the post contains unreliable information. I mean I can imagine even threads like this turning into some sort of downvoting battlefield, you just can't escape that infamous gang mentality apparently...
I'm white and I have those, I honestly don't get why so many people go as far as to recreate them. Of course the trend helps normalise the whole thing so there's that lol Every time I smile my eyes look smaller because of that and I get crow's feet. It's annoying. Ooops didn't realise I was on the first page of the thread lol
I think she's too self-absorbed and that's why she doesn't seem to care deeply about anyone....and that's also the reason why she will always feel the need to adjust her aesthetic, seek attention etc. Not to get too philosphic, but I think you can only be happy if you genuinely care about others, humans are social creatures after all. And you're right, anything and anyone is just a prop to her, that's the problem.
You know, I get where you're coming from. I think it's yet another thing we have influencers to blame for. Everyone these days claims to have social anxiety or depression, to be an INTJ or an INFJ, and they ALL complain about how difficult they have it as "introverts". What they don't understand is that "introvert" doesn't mean "anti-social". You can be an introvert and love people to bits. Honestly if I see someone at a social event who doesn't engage with anyone and is stand-offish, I don't think too highly of them. I'm a huge introvert yet I'm very very sociable WHEN I go out. That's the difference: being an introvert means that you recharge your batteries by spending time alone, not by avoiding others when you're in company...that's just rude and kind of makes me think that these people are convinced they are above others.
Here we go again, Marzia plagiarised another design without giving credit. This is the original from the Umbra brand, as you can see it reads "Designed by: Mauricio Affonso" https://www.umbra.com/casa-tissue-box-cover And yes, funnily enough she couldn't even use the usual basic Italian name for this one...because it was already taken. The original is called CASA TISSUE BOX COVER, so she had to change it up a bit and called it CASETTA TISSUE BOX HOLDER. Her fans on IG keep praising her for her creativity and that they've never seen anything like this, and she just won't address / credit the designer. Some of them are even under the delusion that she makes the wooden houses herself, when it's actually stated on her Maì website that the wooden houses are handmade in Poland (I found someone on Etsy that makes knock-offs and is from Poland, but I won't go hard on this person because generally creatives on Etsy just try their best to make a living - I don't condone it though).
See, there's a problem with the definition one gives to certain opinions, and this is valid for downvotes as well as I said. One thing is downvoting someone because they are trolls, or because you disagree with the topic at hand / have milder opinions, another is downvoting a picture with new evidence of not just copying but TRACING à la Kenna. At this point anyone would get "intense" about it. I mean, you posted something like that too on that very thread and you barely got any upvotes. A girl on the Lunestelle thread has been MASSIVELY downvoted because she dared expose Lunestelle (which is untouchable not because she's loved, but because she's Kenna's rival or something). To me even Reddit is some sort of hippie commune compared to this forum. I'm sorry but I can't speak well for the general level of maturity on this site, and that's why I hope the lack of downvoting, at least temporarily gets rid of this toxic mentality. It's a shame because this forum is so nice to use and very pretty to look at too, which matters as well lol
Lol I don't know with these people. Maybe they like Lunestelle's aesthetic and aesthetics is all that matters in life, no? Although I would love for Sierra to be passive-aggressive towards Kenna, the poor girl always seems to be an afterthought for her, especially if you compare Kenna's behavior towards her other sisters
I thought about it, but ultimately I decided that it's just a funny coincidence imo. After all, wilting flowers are pretty common in poetic () imagery, but Lunestelle is very attached to this dainty little label she's given herself apparently. Also I'm convinced she's batshit crazy, so who knows, everything could set her off. The delusion in the clip is strong. She acts like it's the most normal thing in the world to comment on Kenna's shit, and it makes her appear even more unhinged. Like girl, you have an obsession problem, stop acting like you're casual about it. Also can she please stop with her "heyo"?
Late to the party, but I want to touch on the cat thing. I remember the cat. Mostly I remember Kenna filming with the cat meowing in the background a couple times, and it always upset me how annoyed she was by it, like not in that kind of cute way some youtubers complain about their pet making noises, just waiting for it to stop. Also a cat would have been perfect for her aesthetic, Kiki's Delivery Service etc. I just think she doesn't like animals, and I know I shouldn't judge but this is just another thing that adds to the vibe I get off her: she has no feelings (not in a speshul-intj way, just in an inconsiderate-asshole way ).
This. I've been on other forums and I've never experienced the amount of...side-eyeing? that I can sense every time I post on whatever thread on PULL. All because I dared to expose (with evidence) someone who's really loved here. It's hilarious how rude people are to me and even tease me about it on unrelated threads / purposedly twist my words to start a fight / report me at any given chance. And ALL of them are people I upset on that thread! You're missing the point imho. Personally even with the amount of downvotes I got, other people agreed with me so I rarely went under and actually got a lot of upvotes. My issue with downvotes is that, as I said, the userbase is younger compared to, say, Reddit or even Guru Gossip. Not to say that GG is never a toxic place (personally I rarely have issues there, but it CAN be just as toxic), but I feel like a younger userbase paired with a downvoting system is a recipe for disaster. Downvoting means that you can get away with it without explanation. It's useful to weed out trolls / whiteknights or to prevent misinformation to spread, but it's dangerous when it's (often) abused out of spite. It's not about hurt feelings lol it's about being denied the right to share EVIDENCE when it ruffles some feathers. If what people want is echo chambers there's the youtube/IG comment section.
Waaait wait wait! I get what EXACTLY triggered her lol even worse than I thought. Lunestelle once (or more than once actually) referred to herself as a "wilting flower" facing criticism on the internet etc. That must be what set her off. The more I watch that clip, the more it's clear to me that she's a major Regina George in sheep's clothes.
I don't even have an IG account anymore yet I still normally look at IG accounts and feeds online and there are even websites where you can check IG stories. Means nothing. Lunestelle is just very manipulative and thinks she's outsmarting everyone with her dainty princess act.
Well, obviously I'm referring to core values such as honesty, transparency, actual empathy. Like, Belle can sing and Kenna is better at tracing drawing than me, but I thought it was clear in context that it wasn't what I was talking about. My qualifications/opinions matter as much as yours or anyone else's. It's observable patterns of behavior that should be taken as fact/evidence, and it's not possible to see those while taking things at face value. Obviously no one flat-out tells you "Hey, I'm a shitty person!" but Belle displays an alarming level of dedication at portraying an innocent, compassionate soul. As I wrote on Kenna's thread, with her you get what you see in a way: she's an asshole who acts like an asshole.
