Thread: Fortress ADISC Movement

  1. #1

    Default Fortress ADISC Movement

    Hi all,

    After the banning of the under 18s, I feel the time is now to go on the offensive regarding the culture of this place with regards to new members. We must not allow the quality of discourse and the innocent, family-friendly nature of theis place be lost simply because we are an 18+ site, with all that the internet says that it entails. What drew me here and keeps me coming back is that family attmosphere, and I don't want to see that lost.

    I'm worried but not fatalistic. If the safety mod team holds up the PG 13 rule with NO exeptions, as the DEFINED CULTURE of this place, then we should be all right. Don't let the creepers and Deekerites invade.

    Also, I don't, personally, want to see the discussions like the ones on the 18+ forum spill out onto the main forums. No sexual topics in Adult baby or Diaper Talk, for instance. That wall should remain up, if only for the family-friendly culture we all love.

    I don't want to see this place become someplace like Adultbaby dot co dot uk, with sexually explicit stories and, at best, a thin veneer of respectability. We need to stay on this. Or we fail. It's not the end of the world, but I can see it from here.

    Fortress ADISC, who's with me? Become a watchdog.

    Don't quote me on this, but I heard kind of off hand around 10% of the site population banned were teens, which means the proportion of the site has pretty much been 18+ in that regard.

    Sooo I can understand why you may worry....but the fear that's going to happen doesn't have a lot of ground frankly. Even only being here for little over half a year, I doubt the culture's going to do a complete 360 because of that. The majority here are already looking out from what I can tell and that kind of thing isn't already accepted anyway.

    Moo and the other admins already clearly stated the only thing that has changed is adisc is a 18+ only site now and because of that the minors got temp banned until 18th birthdays. Legal age of the US and canada I think, which I believe is where adisc is hosted and mostly visited from.

    Anyways if Adisc did somehow go that route, a new website will spring up and offer what adisc one did. I won't be surprised if with see a new teenbaby.net via some other name and when that takes off some members will leave adisc for there.

    Which is what happened with a few people on various AB/DL fourms before. Every 3 to 5 years for various reasons.

    What I'm getting at here isn't moderating members after they've joined, but making clear to them that that, essentially, conversations should be undertaken as if there were minors present, a concept perhaps foreign to those moving from other fetish sites and expecting the usual business to fly because we are 18+. We used to have a concrete reason, now we don't, so we need to step up the "rhetoric" for lack of a better term.

    FootieCrinkle - you expressed my sentiments EXACTLY! I was debating starting a thread about this exact same topic. I too love the family-friendly, PG-13 nature of this website. Diaper porn is available everywhere you look on the internet, but ADISC is unique. I would also implore Moo and the Safety Mods to continue exactly as they have before and run this site AS IF minors were present. I would like for ADISC to remain an example to minors and people everywhere that you can engage in this interest (primarily diapers) in a healthy way with integrity. Otherwise, the only image minors and any of us will have is that of creepy porn.

    As an aside, I feel terrible for even the 10% of minors that just got kicked off this site. I know ADISC has been a valuable support community for me, and I can only imagine how important it was for some of them. Several members on this site, I truly feel are my friends. I wonder what it would feel like to wake up one morning and discover I am cut off from those friends and support for the next several years. I don't blame Moo because I have a feeling he had no choice in doing it, or ADISC would have been completely shut down. I just want to reach out to those minors and say, "Hang in there. Be Strong. You are not alone, and you are NOT freaks!"

    Eh, Sexual Exploration is a thing at 16 in Canada, but considering this is hosted stateside, 18 is probably a better bet.(If you're going for Majority in Canada, it's 18/19 depending on province)

    As others have pointed out, I will just point it out again as well...

    Moo has absolutely no intention of removing PG-13 rule.

    Remember, ADISC is still a support community, not an adult material community.

    I was surprised, yet not surpised by the rule change because with minors- you take your chances with them. Sure I was comfortable with the crowd we have and had here because unlike other ABDL sites, the ABDL thing is not the main focus on this site.

    It was and IS about providing an understanding about the AB world and a way to provide a safe haven away from the creepos that seem to run rampant on other sites that ARE more sexually oriented.

    I know that this had to be a hard decision for Moo and the Admins but I am certain it had to be done. Sometimes people have to make hard decisions in life and as someone who has had a fair share of those as as well life- it can't be helped. I am certain that there are other mitigating circumstances that led to the decision. Am I sad that the minors no longer have a safe haven? Yes, because there are a lot of people who have questions about AB, life, etc and most places in the AB world are not safe for minors.

    ADISC to me, has NEVER been a sexually oriented place but a place of support and community. To me, that has always been a good thing and I think that is what ADISC should be. ADISC is a place where I feel welcome. Sure I don't post all the time, sure I have a hard time fitting in but I do feel welcome and safe here knowing that the creepos aren't welcome here.

    I am disturbed by the change, banning the teens, I'd rather have been banned myself for being an adult like the old forum. This always was a teen support forum and I always tried to respect that. I am still a teen in my 53 yo body anyway. The management and mods here are the best on the net and I have faith ADISC will continue to be the best ADBL support forum ever, not some commercial porn/fake hook-up site like the rest.

    I had the same thought about this site, and I was ready to rip with a multitude of off color topics. In all seriousness, I too appreciate the maturity of this site. If I wanted to join a "I"m sitting in my poopie diaper. What are you doing..." sight, I would have, but I see absolutely no point in that nonsense. I realize there are those who get off on that, but I really don't need that in my life. Diapers alone are enough to satisfy that need for me.

    ADISC fulfills a much different need, though some of that has changed as we've lost our teens, but that need is being there for someone else, and one can still do that. Like others have said, 90% of the population has been 18 or older, and so life goes on. I really appreciate the civility of this site, and I try to remind myself to be civil as well. I do have a wicked sense of humor, but I understand that nuance can be lost when there are only words, so I try to think about what I mean as I sit and type. Anyway, I'm sure adisc will maintain it's high standards because Moo is our fearless leader, and he has high standards. Thanks Moo and other mods. You do a great job.
