Toxic communities?

I wouldn't call 4chan deep web by any means. It's got horrible shit on it, but it's not a deep web site. It's not even dark web. I know there are sites out there worse than 4chan. 

But I agree, their community is a bit crazy. I used to access 4chan many years ago, and wasn't a fan of it. 

Are you kidding me right now about some sites that are worst than 4chan? I would like to know more about them..

Another site that is a blessing or a curse is adultwork.com. Sometimes, you will meet a nice woman. Other times, it's not worth the hassle to look through pages of fake accounts and hard nuts. 

It even looks and sounds like an adult porn website. The name alone is a turn off as far as I'm concerned.

It's for the adult industry, so it covers escorting and the like. 

As long as it's stipulated as such when joining it, I don't really think it's right to complain about what goes on there eeh?

As I was saying in the RE thread, I got booted from a forum. In fact, I had the page open on my other phone. This is the post I made. 

The title of the thread was, "Resident Evil has been completely destroyed!"

Here's the post...

*TEXT BEGINS HERE*

At least, in my opinion...

Ever since RE4 was released nearly 20 years ago, the story has been utter dog **** throughout the subsequent games. They basically had to release some crappy Wii based, on rails game to summarize how Umbrella ended, when we could have gotten a fully fledged game to reveal how that played out. They could have used fixed camera angles, to send that era out with a bang. But nah. It seems as if Capcom just couldn't be arsed caring.

RE4 is just a run and gun game. It has some tricky enemies, but it's an adventure game at heart. And horror games should not really have vendors appearing to sell you arsenal. That's just so stupid. So that type of thing is disappointing. I'm a guy who likes to find things rather than being offered it via trading.

I liked the older, far more creepy games. The old ones such as 0, CV, the first remake, etc. All were great, interesting games. The graphics were rather timeless looking too. You also had some truly intimidating creatures like Yawn the snake, the Crimson Head zombies, and the Lickers and the Hunters. You know? A lot of fans miss them.

Then they kept up this action oriented garbage for years in games like 5 and the Revelations spin offs, and with RE6, they copied this game called Gears of War 3. You can, in both games, use a slide in a park, and it's very shooter-ish and bland. There was zombies in Leon's campaign, but it was pretty meh, to be honest.

Now RE7 was so-so in my eyes, but it didn't feel like a RE game at all. Chris looked awful and the main hero "Ethan Winters" is never even shown in full. You also just run away a lot of the time. There was only really two types of enemies. That being a family, and these mould creatures that walk slowly towards you.

Then with the latest one called Village, they essentially copied the gameplay and story from RE4, because apparently, people were saying 7 was too scary, or whatever. But you do the same things. You end up in a castle and a factory. It's very action heavy as well, and the bosses are so dumb. Everybody seems to have a soft spot for the tall vampire lady, but it's childish nonsense like this character which I cannot be bothered with. The other bosses are also so silly, I cannot take them seriously. A guy turns into a transformer looking thing.

Plus, the two recent reimaginings that Capcom released had some noticeable issues. They cut out a lot of things. No crows. No spiders. Nemesis acted like a moron. Zombies served as bullet sponges. They changed the plot, and watered it down, and quite considerably into the bargain.

I don't know. Maybe it's just me. But yeah, I really do think Capcom has messed it up, and they cannot stop going back to Raccoon City for these mediums, like those horrible movies and Netflix shows. But in my eyes, they're just doing it as a cash grab. It really doesn't bode well for their creativity.

Like, why bother? They already blew up the town. But they want to keep on milking the franchise's golden era, over and over again. So meh. It's such a chore trying to give a damn any longer.

Maybe the administrator doesn't fancy it when Capcom and their Resident Evil games are attacked.. Maybe he's their fan boy!!!

I could see through someone getting banned if they had posted some choice language, specifically insulting certain users. But booting somebody for having heated opinions about a franchise is stupid. It suggests they don't appreciate criticism of that nature. It's not trolling, like they may think it is. 

Then again, they can do whatever they please with their own forums. It's their site, and they pay the hosting fees. But it just sets a bad example. 

Blooming typos.

Yeah exactly, it's their platform to run as they see fit. They can wake up one day and decide to hell with everyone and take down the community!!

I've read the article and I have to actually defend the movie production to some degree.  I know it's a disruptive pain in arse but if one of the security guards on the movie is telling not to go down a certain street, you should listen to them.  They might be a dangerous stunt for all know, but this idiot just keeps walking!  For months now the pavements in my town have been being ripped to install new fibre broadband cable, is it inconvenient, yes, do I piss and moan about it NO!  I just get on with it.

I was actually in movies before. But now I rarely promote that status, as this Australian troll kept pestering me online over the last 5 years, and following me around websites. For the foreseeable future, I won't be adding anything to IMDb if I don't get any billing. That way, he is gonna be none the wiser about what I appear in. The jackass that he is. Not that I really gain any acting jobs now anyway. But you know how it is with losers that have a vendetta against you, despite being a total stranger across the other side of the world.

It's sad. This guy is 36 as well, but he behaves like somebody way younger than his legitimate age. He's that obsessed with me, in fact, that I observed him editing tons of wikis pages I contributed to on Fandom, just to be 'tagged' to them via email updates. So he came back and started doing these attention whore stunts like messing up the pages, pretending to be other people I name dropped, adding production notes about things he has zero involvement with and never will, which is stalker-like, or leaving immature sounding guest comments with proxies. He's a real creepy son of a, you know what.

Fortunately, Australia and New Zealand has enough good people, that they would dismiss his bogan butt if they found out about any of his childish carry on. He also has some bizarre YouTube channel with my user name, trying to get me to flag his nonsense by uploading embarrassing videos about me that he stole from channels I have since had terminated.

I need to be careful what I post about online, due to him. Plus, I wanted to be an extra in local films shot in Edinburgh, but I was caught up in a pointless spat with multiple people for a long time, after some arrogant woman I never met kept saying things to people in charge of productions, behind my back. It really only serves to mess up one's life. That's a dumb way to treat a person, if you're just going to be considered as a "background extra" in one or more scenes. You're not even a part of the main cast. 

Sometimes, you end up 'blurred out' in the final cut, so IMDb may not even allow you to include an uncredited role to your page either. So all of this is just really dumb and shallow behaviour. But that's seriously sad, if idiots are trying to stop you being an extra in low budget pictures, because of a grudge, or something. It is rather ridiculous and to be honest, incredibly petty. It's also unprofessional.

I'm sure there's a lot of actors in Hollywood that hate one another, but it's a business like any other, so you have to grind your teeth and get on with things. Right?

Have you ever had access to any deep web in the past? I think it's something I'm relishing to experience.

There is always competition in everything in the world, so, it's a normal thing for you to witness it in the movie industry.
