We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed. There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.
bountyhunter added a topic in Taylor RMenclub - Tom Lip's controversial online magazinePOST STILL IN PROGRESS - REPLY IN COMMENTS TO HELP ME EDIT IT
Description of Menclub
Menclub (https://menclub.hk/) is a digital magazine and platform aimed at men. There is a main website, as well as social media presence on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pg/menclub.hk and https://www.facebook.com/pg/menclub.auto), Instagram (https://www.facebook.com/menclub.hk/), and Twitter (https://twitter.com/menclubhk). It encompasses many topics, including food, alcohol, technology, lifestyle, and popular culture. There is also a heavy focus on girls/women, who are featured in at least one special section of the website (menclubgirl). Scantily clad women can also be found scattered throughout the site in other sections, such as The Zone. The website includes a “Private Room.” In order to view this area of the website, a Menclub specialist must approve a man’s membership. The following is written in formal Chinese on the registration form:
Private Room is limited to specially selected members of MenClub. We will have a specialist personally inspect the personal information of each registrant. Upon successfully becoming a member of the Private Room, we will have a specialist contact you either by telephone or e-mail.
Inside of the MenClub Private Room, you will will be in contact with a whole new, never before seen world that is exclusively for gentlemen.
If you sincerely would like to join the Private Room, please fill in the form below and kindly wait patiently:
First and last name:
Cell phone number:
Why we need your membership:
There have been many theories about what the “Private Room” offers. Taylor claims it is solely for cigar evenings, wine tastings, latte classes, and meet-ups with other Menclub members. Pictures of these gatherings can be found on the Menclub Facebook page. However, this seems like an intense investigation of one’s personal life (an individual specialist has to have your personal information, cell phone, and salary?). It is possible the Private Room of Menclub is not just for the above activities, but at this point, there is no proof of any escort services, or illegal activitiy.
Underage girls featured on Menclub
Menclub has come under fire for regularly featuring underage girls (perhaps without their consent) on their pages. These articles are generally written by one particular guy who also likes to write articles smacking of sexism and misogyny.
Receipts of underage girls being featured in the same section that has porn stars, cam-girls, and models who pose nude/risque:
(disclaimer, nothing is wrong with grown, 18+ women doing sex work/showing skin but don't put underage models in the same category)

He has posted a pretty stunningly obtuse defense of his company's behavior, and accused the poster ofmaking slanderous allegations against his company. All of the posts by this cowtipper have been deleted, and only Tom's defense now remains.
Here's the screenshot of his post alleging that the cowtipper is saying false things that will have "serious consequences": https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/uploads/monthly_2018_12/Screenshot_20181211-144526_(1)_-_Copy.jpg.dc1e3561a5bf5cd3aac7a1c6b4728ade.jpg
Taylor has since made two videos defending her husband and Menclub since ONTD printed an article about the controversy.
ONTD article: https://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/113520999.html
Taylor video #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fpcZSjOdPY [opens the video by saying how "silly" the topic is. denies involvement with the website.]
Taylor video #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJHnvGtnvqk [says the website "isn't for her" and basically explains it as a cultural phenomenon. basically condones sexualizing children and teens.]
Taylor pretends that only one or two articles focus on underage girls, and repeatedly tells us how popular the magazine is in HK. The links above prove that Menclub featured numerous underage girls on their site, and that it encourages men to sexualize girls.
Taylor's involvement with Menclub
Tom claims Menclub is only 5 years old, but it's actually 6 years old. Archive.org crawled the site in 2012. Most of the early hits say "coming soon," but between Oct and Nov 2012, the site went live. Girls were a section of the site from the very beginning.
In late 2012, Taylor was probably already working for Beauty Exchange, one of Tom's other sites. There's a post on his FB site dated Dec 16, 2012, where he says "BE girls rock" – there's a thumbnail of a now-deleted Taylor video (the Cinderella one) included in the screenshot.
Tom introduces Taylor officially to Menclub on December 4, 2012. The Menclub site is only 2 months old (tops) at this point. She was part of the original promotion for the site, which in turn promoted her social media and website.
On February 14, 2013, Taylor announces to Apple Daily that she is single, and their online magazine prints an article about it. This is promoted on the same day by Menclub.hk (on their website and on their FB page). Menclub asks their audience if they have the balls to date Taylor.
Menclub continued to promote Taylor with weird posts.

May 29, 2013: Taylor looks sad [on Taylor’s own FB the caption was “Think before you speak. Every time you call a person a name, talk down to them, or judge them you become an uglier person yourself.”] https://www.facebook.com/menclub.hk/posts/384646561656738

Dec 17, 2013: Interview with Taylor, the “Christmas goddess”
2014: https://web.archive.org/web/20190224202611/https://www.facebook.com/menclub.hk/photos/a.153530161435047/497297700391623/?type=3&theater (linking Taylor’s upskirt photos to the Menclub audience. Note that Taylor and Tom were dating at this point)
Taylor's dancing videos and several other videos were promoted on Menclub's FB page, including the video of her and Sharla playing the "newly friend game." Both were wearing shirts with fake cleavage printed on the front, so that's probably why Menclub promoted the video
Taylor did at least three videos for Menclub. One can still be found (the robotic Happy Chinese New Year one): LINK
The other two are:
a Christmas greeting (she was called their “Christmas goddess” - I still can’t find this, but it may be out there)
an interview https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/uploads/monthly_2018_11/Screen_Shot_2018-11-24_at_2.38.51_PM.png.45191aee95e559b224e6d57834cb9a41.png

The Christmas goddess special issue of MenClub is here! First up is the sweet Canadian gal, Taylor R!
Taylor R, who comes from Canada, looks exactly like a real princess. She's different from many Western chicks in that she has a Japanese flair. As such, she's become a big-name model in Hong Kong. Although Hong Kong is where Taylor found fame and success, she still makes sure to go back to Canada to celebrate the Christmas holiday every year.
"I am studying in Hong Kong, but Canada is full of interesting stuff. It snows over there, and I also really like catching up with my family and friends."
This year is no exception for Taylor: "I am going to go home and have Christmas dinner with my family. My grandma makes the best turkey in the world! I really miss my family, I can't wait to see them."
Unlike in Hong Kong, Christmas is not commercialized in Canada. Taylor said Christmas was an unforgettable part of her childhood.
"I used to believe in Santa Claus back then. When I saw all the trees that 'Santa' left under the tree, I felt so happy. If I become a mother one day, I'd like to let my children enjoy that experience too."
Taylor seems to receive a lot of gifts from her fans, so she stated frankly: "To be honest, I don't want to receive Christmas gifts anymore. I already have too much stuff!"
The interview was watched by a number of PULL members before it was taken down.
Taylor promoted her Menclub interview on Facebook and sent a greeting to Menclub members on Twitter (tweet has since been deleted)
Other Menclub content with Taylor in it seems to be deleted now. Many things were removed after she announced that she had a boyfriend.
I'll need to come back to this after I do some other work, but please provide links to any content you'd like added, or suggest more textual edits.
