Why are perverts so prevalent on this site, especially lately?

Simply put guys are disgusting perverts in general - Coming from a guy
Add in lonely men on forums and because girls don't like them as there anime fans and you have a ton of pervs.

Seriously i had a friend ...no two who got sent dick pics on cr all the time and people hitting on them its disgusting and something people seem to only get when a profile is marked as female.

Perverts are prevalent everywhere.

Report them and move on is all you can sadly do and i hope in the future we see mods take this more seriously however the problem isn't being solved easily partially due to victims not REPORTING what those pervs send.


Are you SERIOUS?! WTF man. Disturbing. About the reporting bit, I can attest to my sister-in-law doing so herself and me also reporting these people, and the mods did nothing.

Just saying I'm actually a dude and changed my gender to F to experiment with what its like to be a female on this site. Yes, there are people that do this, not sure why but I, as a guy, have gotten uncomfortable through said PMs. I play along but then it just gets too far and pushy. The thing is you can't really do anything about PMs because its not public for everyone to see, there aren't any rules there. You can report the person but that won't stop them from making a new account and acting like another user. The best thing to do is ignore, and block, or just change your gender to M if you are uncomfortable

Yes I'm looking at you people who talk in asterisks

EX: *hugs you from behind*



The asterisk thing is okay if its stuff like: *laughs, eating a cookie* or something basic like that, but you are right, its uncomfortable to the extreme, and the account bit is so true, I can't begin to say how true that is. Hm. The gender bit is smart, very smart.



The mods doing nothing there makes it happening partially the mods fault i hope they crack down on this sort of stuff :/


Exactly. We reported these people like tons of times too, all the same, cold replies.

Newsflash: Pervs have been online since the BBS days


I know. Its just skyrocketed in prevalence as of late, hence the topic.


My opinion is that it's pretty much everywhere online, since there's sickos pretty much everywhere.

Stalking on an anon anime forum... Geez how desperate and pathetically sad. You'd think at least they're the regular kind of jerks that stalk Facebook profiles but, yeah.

If people get harassed and mods don't do their jobs, then the harassed need to vote with their feet and head on out of here- Sorry to hear about such things but there's nothing the rest of us could do.


This is what my sister-in-law was forced to do when no help was given despite TONS of evidence and reports, and I do agree that its pathetic and sad. It really is.

They can't get any in real life.

Couldn't you just block these messages? Regardless of website you're going to encounter issues here and there with them.

I don't quite see how its the mods job here to deal with this when you can just block someone to stop messages? Or am I missing something here?

Well some guys give less of a fuck...so they might find it funny, easy, get something out of it.
Its just a way for the male to attract females it was all written in "how to pick up girls in my dungeon 101"

Would agree that many more now wouldn't mind or care and might be from a totally different community that is rather... -___- but that its really "skyrocketed" dunno about that, I guess its more on you we are talking about also the community you engange in would also make us know what and why you are getting such things (like to twitter and tumblr.. oh well...-_(^'^)_-)

Not much they could do, unless maybe banning the account dunno if they get more access then that.
And if it was me I would mostly just put it as spam.
Even if such people would maybe need some form of punishment or make it tedious doing such things.

I'd imagine there's not actually that many of them - the vast majority of the site's users make no use of its forums or social aspects, as I recall. Rather the issue is probably that there are a few very persistent reprobates who go out of their way to harass people because they have the mental capacity of a damaged twelve-year-old and there's only so much the site can do to stop them. (Account ban? Accounts are free. IP ban? IPs can be changed quite easily.)

Unfortunately you'll always end up with some bad eggs whenever a basket is large enough, and CR does have a lot of users.

Oh, its so common its scary. LOL, they are so desperate, so that is true too.


I remember back when the whisper app was actually interesting. If you ever posted anything with a girl as the background picture or just anything seeming feminine you would receive dick pics and harassing messages. Even if I told them they were sending them to a guy most didn't seem to care. I guess some people just get a kick out of that stuff no matter what site you're on.

I personally don't see the enjoyment from harassing people. Sense of power maybe? Since you really can't do anything other than tell them to shoo. Whatever their reasons is dumb.

Apologies on behalf of our stupid male brethren.

True but then say some other user gets friendly with you, then after getting to know them or getting a bit closer they start hitting you with

*nibbles on your ear*

Can't really trust anyone. People will come on as trying to share their interests but when they feel like they are in your comfort zone they'll start hitting you with asterisks. It could possibly be the same person trying different approaches on different accounts, it happens

Not much can be done about it and it brings shame to all us men, rise above it, ignore them, let them get bored and only add people you know or people you've spoken to in the community a few times that you can tell are respectable if you're looking for more buddies on CR

WHAT, seriously? =_= You make a point about power though. You, sir, are a rare breed, cherish that. If you read my profile, I am rare for a female too, which is why my husband married me, and why we have such a strong, long lasting relationship.

Sure its dumb do you think they....cared about that either?... (also some could be seen as training for themselfs? more to what do you reaction on and what to do to make you respond or "care" about it)
Not really power or some as being self confident, but it can say much about the one doing it either depressive and more while also want attention and so on.

Near as I can tell, the kind of perverts in question are not nearly so prevalent on CR. I've been on this site since 2008, and I've encountered only three confirmed creeps. Three over the course of roughly eight years, and I've made my sex clear the entire time. I sure hope you aren't lumping casual flirting into it, considering your admittance of establishing a lasting romantic relationship via CR.

No, sexual RPs do NOT need to be banned all across the board. It's uncalled for to ban people who willingly RP with each other, particularly when it's on the more private group pages. This is not a site expressly for young children. Some of us adults, like myself, appreciate adulting.

Furthermore, let's can it with the "all men are gross" bullshit. I'm no prude, myself, and am known to heavily flirt from time to time, as well as for being pervy.

We have CR members as young as fourteen all the way to past sixty. Is it so horrific that sexuality exists, when this isn't a children-only site?

pretty much. especially online, where people can role-play and pretend to be anyone.
as the saying goes, "don't trust anyone, not even me"

maybe they should make it so that you can block everyone not on your friend list from PM-ing you.
(i mean, people are already blocked from commenting on other's profile by default, seems reasonable enough)

edit: by the by, a distinction should be made between RP and harassment.
sexual comments/suggestive comments falls under harassment (unless both parties are fine with it)

Sometimes I wish a girl or someone would just message me, but again if someone let's me know that I'm going too far on certain things I'd be sure to stay away from that person
