    @Jun ~ I don’t know when you’ll see this and what I’m about to say, you may not be able to exactly do anything about, but it’s worth you being aware of the site’s wellbeing if that makes sense…the website is slowly disintegrating into a hive of toxicity and a few people are getting hurt and it’s growing very unhealthy. I love the site, I really…[Read more]

    Good day @Jun, I hope you’re having a fabulous day ~ This is a bit nerve-wracking for me but… could you ban my account for a month. I think I need the time off to just concentrate on myself and my exams and not get too attatched to the site ( however wonderful it may be). Anyways, thank you 🙂 Carry on having a fantastic week

    @KITTYDOGREAPER2 – heya, id just like to apologise if i had any part in you feeling ganged up on or the blatant toxicity – i hope you can forgive me and that we can be friends, if that is okay? i’m further sorry that u had to go through all that on christmas day, it wasn’t right.

        lifeasabookworm replied 3 weeks, 1 day ago

        dw, anger and sadness sometimes blinds who we truly are and as long as you have apologised and reformed (which you have perfectly just depicted), then you are a good person. We all have our shades of grey – and yes, ofc i forgive you, you never wronged me – it is fine 🙂

        everyone’s leaving, my friends and people i enjoyed the company of, even if i didn’t talk to them as much as i know i should have, and it’s upsetting yet i get why. the site isn’t necessarily the happiest place rn. maybe we really are burning down.

          honestly, so much toxicity and arguments have arisen lately. it’s skewered the friendliness and warmth of the site
