I recently left Daily Booth after over 1300 postings. I left some friends, some good times, and, I hope, some significant contributions to the adult part of the site.
I also left a bunch of little entitled princesses (AKA “little blinking blanks“) and spoiled brats who left messages like “u r 2 old” or “u stink“, the sort of comments that stun you for their ignorance and lack of respect. Their generation will have arthritic, twisted thumbs no matter how much they truncate the English language now!
There is no upper age limit on users of Daily Booth, though children under 14 are not allowed to participate. The demographics of the site show teenage girls between 14 and 17 make up most of the boothers. Teenage girls, yup!
There are written community guidelines to use to stop accounts of people who abuse others directly (“u r 2 old“) or indirectly (such as suggestive photos or hate language, among other things).
There is even a thing called the “10 Commandments”, which show ten ways to make the website a pleasant, fun experience.
To add teeth to the formal guidelines, there are two ways a victim or observer of victimhood can draw attention to the bad seed: a blocking feature, which prevents them from posting comments on your account; or a reporting feature where you turn them in to the site managers for punishment or banishment from the site.
It works, mostly.
You still have these little impudent twits to deal with through the safeguards provided. I just reached a point where I no longer felt like dealing with them.
There is an anti-American, antichristian bias on Daily Booth.
Oh! And one young man, who’d earlier indicated he appreciated my comments on his booths, finally admitted he thought my comments were “too long“.
There, in 338 words, is why I’m off Daily Booth. I hope this hasn’t been too long for you.
