    • 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.

The nearest synonyms for trigger would be 'activator' or something like 'automatic release'. It is specific term mainly used in certain fields like psychology and biology or in technology when an implus/stimulus causes a reaction. Other languages like german use the word exactly the same way in spelling and meaning.

 

Oh OK, just that when I was speaking to a person in the USA online I told them that something had really wound me up, and they didn't know what I meant, so I explained to them that it wound me up so much it was making me stressed. Then another time they said something had triggered them, and they seemed wound up in the same way I was, so assumed it meant the same thing.

it's starting to be annoying whenever she says “this outfit makes me feel like an adult” or “i feel like a grown-up wearing this look” as if she's not an adult at all and still some teen. she might as well just say “i'm a 22 year old teen” just like when kenna says she's a 24 year old kid.

i think at this point anything mikan posts is gonna be pro-ana fuel simply because of how skinny she is and that’s why it’s tiring. i don’t think she can even control it since she knows how to dress for her body type in a flattering way, which makes her look skinnier. the only way all the pro ana comments will stop is if she wears baggy clothes but she shouldn’t be restricted to covering herself up just because some people can’t handle seeing a skinny person. idk i don’t really like seeing people say her account is pro ana or her poses are because she can’t really control it without dressing outside of her style. she isn’t responsible for other people’s happiness and if she triggers people then they shouldn’t look at her account in the first place

The point of Jvloggers using those titles is to clickbait Japanophiles into watching those videos because it involves something Japanese which will get their attention and give her views and 💴💴💴. Typical tactic.

Mikan didn’t have to reply like that... or at all, but why do people say, “This triggered me?” Like it’s one thing getting triggered and it’s another telling someone they triggered you. I just don’t get it? Do we now have to voice every single stray thought in our heads even if we know they’ll negatively affect another person?

The way “trigger” has been co-opted in the last decade, one could argue Mikan’s fan triggered her with that comment.

This entire conversation is annoying because both people could’ve just not fucking said anything. Not to overuse the word “culture,” but I don’t understand this social media culture of having to inform absolutely everyone of every fluctuation in your brain or day. I’ve experienced full on “triggering” before where a single song flipped a switch in my brain and made me hysterical for days because it sent me back to a traumatizing childhood event. I didn’t even ask the person who turned the song on to turn it off. I just left the room and dealt with it myself.

I think I'm the only one who found her reply to that triggered fan to be mild.

Then again I don't have the temperament to be some professionally internet-ing person.

It's kind of funny in a way, isn't it? Because this comment could have potentially "triggered" Mikan. I know it would have triggered me. So you don't want to be triggered but to trigger other people is okay?

Well anyway, both sides were wrong

Yes she doen't have control over her body but she got popular in the first place because she is a skinny conventionally attractive girl with long legs. If a chubby girl dressed like her she wouldn't even have 1/100 of her following

It's kinda a 2 way street, conventionally most instagram baddies are on the bigger side(thicc) and I'm sure the clothes that they stereotypically wear wouldn't suit her as well.

i think a lot of people didn’t mind it but they just didn’t say anything because this thread has become the new kenna thread and is not a pleasant one to touch anymore

Yes I used to wish I was skinny, but then had a skinny friend and she wished she had large boobs like me, so seems as if not many women are happy with what they are lol.

I never thought of her as pro ana before reading on here. I thought as she loves Japan so much then she's lucky, as I think Japanese people seem to have a smaller body frame than north Europe where she has lived, so she seems to look more similar to the Japanese where she lives now than where she used to.

honestly i also don’t see anything pro ana about her either, but everyone on PULL loves to call skinny people pro ana all the time here
