I have found this site to be supportive as I've come across many likeminded people who I can vent to however, there are some vile people on there. Overall, I enjoy visiting this site.
The people on this site are very rude. Looking through a quite a few STAN fair threads, I've noticed that the commenters are cliquey. If someone new comes in and disagrees with the overall consensus, they will tear into and criticize them as harshly as they would for a celeb or their partner. Even their kids, if you can imagine! (Unfortunate looking celeb kids)
In conclusion, if you have/want to go the site, lurk.
As a result of their inherited, primeval hatred toward people of color, White Supremacists, through the use of poorly replicated, crude, Black dialects and sour humor, created Lipstick Alley for the purpose of capitalizing from the exploitation of naive folks. I define this site as a remake of the radio version of Amos and Andy.
I, personally like to lurk there for the politics and current events. The headlines seem to roll out a lot quicker and with more details than conventional news, in most instances.
Other than that, it's not worth logging in and getting your hands dirty with some of the members - if they are truly "members" in many cases.
Lipstick alley has 40 employees, more or less. Most of them are paid immigrants and of course Russian trolls. If you read the "rules" of Lipstick Alley, you'll see something that should let you know that it is not "black owned".. It might have been, many moons ago. But not any more. It just has or supposedly looks as if it has a high percentage of african american members.
From what many people who have done their due diligence with this site? You might think you're doing a "back and forth" with several members, where it turns out, you're probably arguing with just one person. A paid member/moderator or just administrators - all under multiple accounts.
Other than their employees - you're probably wasting your time doing a "cat-fight" or an "e-fight" with someone with nothing but time on their hands, or as many have stated, mentally ill.
The more you click/debate? The more money in LSA's pockets. As for the nut jobs, you're just giving them time, they really don't deserve.
Why is it that many members are complaining about admin letting "members" or even "trolls" slide when it comes to certain responses/posts/topics? It could be those "members" are just one of their employees/moderators with multiple accounts keeping the inflammatory statements going to suck in the clicks, and keep money in their pockets.
So, of course, they get a "pass".. Makes sense as long as they make money. Those 40+ employees have to eat too, folks.
I was on there, for a while. Though it is a "celebrity gossip" forum. There were actually places there for member support or just general sub forums. There used to be some very nurturing souls regardless of culture who took pride in, or supported the black community. For a very short time? It was also a place of nurturing for women in general. Looks like the owner (who is rumored to be a caucasian/gay male owner of Data Lounge) didn't seem to like that - and put their minions/employees/trolls up to attack anyone who was "positive" "supportive" "respectful" "compassionate" "nurturing".. while implementing the old "you're not full black" "you're not one of us" excuses. Interesting.
Basically? We can all use a little "positive" or "support" these days.. regardless of cultural/gender background..
It doesn't take much research to see that Lipstick Alley is not black owned. Probably never was. And because of the new tactics being used there suppress/ban the real members that are minorities who could use a bit of support right now - Looks like they're trying to clean the site up to sell to the highest/caucasion bidder.
I myself have been getting numerous rumors spread about me on the site, I just can't see why a site like this where people degrade others and have so much hate in their heart that they release on this site would actually be allowed. It's very sickening to my stomach. The fact that an online cyber bullying site has been up for this many years is beyond sad and shows where our society stands. I hope it will soon be shut down once and for all.
