What was the purge (on HM, I know its a movie)?
Between the time I lurked and joined (about a year or so), HM went from about how it is now to booty pics and sexual innuendo all over the place. There was even one dedicated thread that was one step away from online sex postings.
Enough folks got annoyed enough that all that crap got shut down. People got banned, people left because the crap was shut down. A bunch of regulars left before the purge, which is what I think Lon is talking about. Those are the folks I don't really know, but they sound like they would be great to still have.
The above is the reason we have the PG-13, no nudity, and no sexual harassing of other HM members rules. It's not like we don't like sexy, but we don't want it to degrade to the mess it was. And the forum is not going to be the crap throwing fest that bloody-disgusting is. There's a reason HM is know as one of the friendliest horror sites.
Howdy & Lon can feel free to correct any mistakes I made.
edit- figures Lon drops a post while I'm typing mine up!
edit 2- You get banned on HM, most likely I'm banning you from Skype.
