    Is it just me or have the number of missing/deleted profiles on RJ increased lately.

    It seems to me that there has been a surge of fakes that come on here, chat a little, make a post or two and then disappear. It's strange to me as I don't really understand the gay-for-a-day concept.

    Here's another theory. Regular members who don't want to er... stain their reputations with making stupid/inflammatory posts make a temp profile, make a post, and delete it!

    I joined a politics website for 3 weeks.

    Vitriolic remarks, personal insults and profanity made any kind of meaningful exchange of ideas and debate impossible.

    I deleted my entire profile and left. Before I did I left a couple of emails to members I'd made friends with as to why.

    Some of them were getting private emails that were threatening or filled with personal attacks. One member was brave enough to copy and paste these emails onto a topic and the moderator did little.

    Uck, and uck.

    PS I can see why someone here might leave, perhaps over stereotyping. ie, twink and fem complaints. I hates da labels. When someone seeking personal growth and change self-conciously thinks they fit into either category and sees some of what I've seen here coming from a few of the muscled Adonises, well they might take it kinda personal..or as a whack at their self esteem.

    I don't know if the number has increased or not. A couple of new members got into heated forum topics right off the bat which probably discouraged them. Mind you when one of your first forum topics is abortion then good luck to you!
