Read your reply to my status post just now, hopefully you don't mind me answering this way. I wouldn't call the drama a Neocities problem, or a problem unique to any site where people can interact with one another, but it's sad to see community problems affect you this way. You're not obliged to interact with others but the fact that anything you say or do can get taken out of context does take a toll on someone.

I'm by no means someone who is immune to Internet gossipmongering, but I usually try to delve deeper into rabbit holes. Usually, I find out most people aren't as evil as a lot of folk would want you to believe. Dunno your exact situation, but it's a bummer to see you reluctant to interact. For all it's worth I always found you to be quite pleasant.

Apologies for the extremely late reply, I was on the road for the better part of a month :P thank you for your sincere thoughts. You are probably right to say that there's not especially more drama here than other places, but the last time I remember seeing this number of "callout"-type things was 2014 Tumblr! Then I remember a lot of my mutuals (and their mutuals and so on in the wider circle) are super young and >

< basically some of what I see that concerns me is... teenagers being teenagery.

Nothing quite like trying to do the right thing and help a mutual (elsewhere, not here) in need when they're struggling and begging for mutual aid, only to learn that you've been scammed out of $150 USD lol.

Trying to file a dispute/get a chargeback on PayPal but not liking my chances, even though the person who tipped me off made an extremely well-documented and comprehensive file of evidence. I'll probably just have to eat it. No good deed goes unpunished.

Sorry to hear that.

Wonder if I should try building a site with some actual purpose/mission. Been toying with the idea of a "deinfluencing" site intended to deprogram consumerist mindsets, expose advertising tricks, discuss sustainability etc but I don't think I'd have any hope of reaching the audience who needs it most.

Because I have also been (casually) bodybuilding/gymming for the better part of a decade, I also thought about doing barebones reviews of protein products ("Does It Taste Like Dirt", using a rating scale of 0 to 5 dirts, the less dirts a product has the better it tastes).

Having a "whatever" personal site sitting there is all well and fine, I like it being there and I like looking at other people's, but... you know.

Not something for me, but it sounds like a good idea to make, even if it's just for yourself and a handful of people that might find it.

If you were to do guides on gymming/training or ideal exercises focusing certain parts of the body, that'd be up my alley. I'm looking for more exercises that focus on my lower body, but without putting pressure on my back because of a back injury.

That's certainly something I'd have bookmarked if you ever go ahead with it. But I get what you're saying about the ones that need it probably wouldn't be choosing to visit, but others that are aware can use it as a resource perhaps to show others? idk

I think both of those ideas sound great and many people would probably benefit from them! The "dirt scale" sounds hilarious too.

my site started purely for personal stuff but i've had a lot of fun trying to include things others might find useful. both an anti-consumerist or protein product guide sound interesting to me.

@tojisworld - That's a fun idea! I'm not a PT or anything, but I have been through a few sports injuries (fucked up my lower back on a hack squat machine and plantar fasciitis, both needed physio) so I'd like to research and slowly formulate some beginner-to-intermediate resistance training programs...

Thank you for your pieces of feedback by the way, it's very helpful to me figuring out where to go next.

I like the idea of "deinfluencing" and I'd love to see it become realized! While it might struggle to reach the audience who needs it, I think having it in the first place is a good first step.

I don't often engage in forum posts like this but I hate advertising with such a passion, the psychological implications of consumerism and overabundance of advertising is gonna be a major topic in psychology in the next couple decades, so this is important work, even just laying the groundwork for some conversations about it is progress.

@swirl Thank you for letting me know, I kind of rely on people to spot stuff like this since I can't keep track. I'll swap it over with the next thing I need to do.

^ Thanks, it's certainly an unusual part of the collection! "Mimikyuu but imitating other Pokemon" is a great trope

unfortunately given the layout of neocities, i cant reply directly, but the story you shared with me means so very much. i had basically been sending those exact same messages to my girlfriend., i am both comforted and terrified by this shared experience. thank you.

Thank you for your thoughts, too. These are scary times. I don't have much to offer, but I just contributed something to the gofundme. Take care!
