So a few weeks ago I had a new user message me asking if I could help them get their new “social network for ABDLs” up and running which is a little odd considering all the “selling points” of this new platform were things ABDL.link had been doing since day one. If they were doing something new or different I would have tried to offer some help in one way or another. I just said good luck and left it as that.

This turned into a longer post, read the rest here: write.abdl.link/james/a-new-ab

Don't think I have been called "the Radical Far-Left Elite" before 😆

Also 2 years, they signed-up mid June 🙄

@james Can someone explain to me why being racist is considered being “right” and not being racist in considered being just “left” and why it’s happening all around the world these days? Have people really forgot what caused a massacre during WWII? Spoiler - it was racism and hate.

Petty drama 

@mikki @james part 1
I don't get why people are so judgemental the guy tried to ask @james to help
1) copy his idea to.a lower quality site
2) explained it in a open and frank way
And people still say he is a left wing radical for saying he is not willing to put his name or time to a lesser product that is his chose that is not left wing or racist the is human if you don't like what James is doing leave and take your negative opinion else where .

@mikki @james part 2
This is not aimed at @mikki this is aimed at all the people who just want a site we're anything they say is gospel and everyone else needs to shut up this is not way I came here and I am sure this is not why alot of people are here

Petty drama 

@mikki @james its mainly just teh united states with it's massively flawed political system where people assume that if you are not on my side of the argument, you are on their side and there is no middle ground. Basically people are not willing to see the gray area

@Marshy @james @Hampshirebaby
Oh, so you haven’t heard anything about Poland. Here we have a president who calls lgbt people communists, law minister who funds and supports racist and homophobic organizations, church that says that rainbow is a virus, police that beats minors and jails activists, plus many many more hate events going on everyday.

No offense intended towards anyone. I deeply believe that hate should be defeated before it hurts anyone. But then they say it’s “right”.

Petty drama 

@Marshy @james @Hampshirebaby
No further comments intended. I’d love to keep it clean as possible myself. I’m just sharing my point of view and why I cannot understand people who identify themselves as conservative and have no idea that words and actions can hurt others. Considering my current location, I can assure you that the world should stop going in that direction. Just that. I should have kept my mouth shut as always. Sorry. I’m not trying to start a quarrel.

Petty drama 

@mikki @Marshy @james @Hampshirebaby
Mikki, unlike most of us, you have actually witnessed first hand the deadly consequences of hate becoming official government policy. That's why I think it's important for us to diaper up and get out there and act against those hateful tendancies if and when they manifest in our own communities. You don't have to be sorry. We have your back. 🙋‍♂️

Petty drama 

@mHabdl @mikki I totally agree. 🙋 Hate = Evil. There is a huge list of sad exemples in history, still « humanity » doesn't seem to understand.

« Hell is empty and all the devils are here. » (credits: you know who 😅)

@Marshy @james @Hampshirebaby

@mikki from what I have seen it tends to be the people who discriminate that love to throw around those labels. Notice how I didn't once call out their political leaning or call them alt-right or anything like that. I just called them out for being racist. In their mind standing up to that makes me a "Radical Far-Left Liberal", yet they know nothing about my political beliefs (although I will admit most people could guess what I support)

Petty drama 

@mikki @james yes, it’s never felt so wrong and disconnected to feel so far away from being “conservative” and “family oriented” when we’re the ones who are operating based on morals and values

Petty drama 

@james Aw, I'm jealous; I never get recognised as part of the far-left elite. 😉

Also, I don't think the account from 2 months ago was their first account here. I'm sure I blocked or muted them a couple of times (probably for wanging on about snowflakes or something) in the past.

Petty drama 

@putbackinnappies interesting, I couldn't find any related accounts, and I don't think we have suspended many users for things like this before. But they might have another user or have been suspended prior by another moderator in our team

Petty drama 

@james thank you for giving us babs a platform and thank you for making it an inviting and safe space

Petty drama 

@james I suspect that the person lives in the US, where "far left radical elite" has a different meaning than anywhere else in the world. I the last 3 or 4 years, it has come to mean anyone who is for common decency and inclusion and against racism. 😐

Petty drama 

@mHabdl @james tbh it is basically anyone against their political standpoint on certain issues despite agreeing on others. all they see is if you agree with this, you are the left and is evil

Petty drama 

@james far left or far right can we keep this mainstream political bullshit away from lovely places like this? I get politics shoved down my throat everywhere I look these days it’s impossible to escape it. There is extremism on both sides and it’s mentally exhausting.

Petty drama 

@Fluffy_ears I would tent to agree, but there is also a responsibility to protect our users and warn them of people like this within the community, people are often too trusting until it's too late

Petty drama 

@james
Yeah I agree with you.
It's not just for user, it's be a futur legal obligation with Digital Services Act (for EU user) but these obligation are not clear and can change with a possible "right of social network" created by French Constitutional Court (in French) :
conseil-constitutionnel.fr/dec

+, If user is US, he is protected by the 1th amandement.

Bref, online moderation can never be perfect, we need to make choose.
You make the best choses in this case

@Fluffy_ears

Petty drama 

@james @Fluffy_ears
To be a actor of online liberties without any technical or political habilities, you can (for EU user) :

- Surveys you local implementation of copyright directive (for german, follow Julia Reda on twitter)
- contact yours MEP (Member of european parlement) on Twitter, phone etc
- make a little donation for ONG specialised on online liberties (EFF in USA, la quadrature du net in France etc)
- respect teams like abdl link team

Petty drama 

maybe the reason we are all “radical far left elites” is because anyone participating in kinks generally won’t find acceptance in conservative groups. 🙄 This person is a complete fuckwad and we all have your back @james

Sorry you have to deal with some idiot coming into your house and causing drama. How irritating.

Petty drama 

@james yeah, that person is pretty deeply mentally ill. Awhile back, they published an 80 page manifesto, outing about a dozen people, because they disagreed with them on another forum. They’ve also been kicked off almost every other ABDL website out there.

Petty drama 

@LittleTrainer @james The best way to deal with toxic people is to keep as far away as possible from them. Thank you, @james , for doing just that. 🙅‍♂️☠

Petty drama 

@james they're definitely batshit.
They seem to encounter "radical leftists" (aka "anyone who disagrees with them") on every site they use.
They're just full of hate and if they're gone the site is better for it.

Petty drama 

@james I get shit for my right wing views all the time just don’t care
