FetLife is an adult online website for kinksters and in their community guide lines they state "Our number one priority is to create a fun and safe place for kinksters, like you and I, to call home here on the interwebs." My question to FetLife is how would you like it if you were being spied upon without your knowledge in your own home by certain groups or individuals. That is exactly what FetLife is doing in their so called safe home for kinksters by letting certain groups operate within their website that spy on its members without their knowledge. The groups that I am referring to are The REAPS Projet, FAKE Profiles on FetLife, The Fakes of Fetlife, Fakes-Frauds-Flamers, and Copyright Thieves!. These groups like to put links to other members profiles on the website within their groups for other members within the groups to attack them. Many times members are being accused without any proof what so ever except for the fact that they may have a large number of images in their gallery or because a member has a personal vendetta against another member and wants to cause problems. The members being linked to on many occasions do not even know they have been mentioned in a public forum unless one of their friends tells them and if they go and confront the individuals in that group they are set upon like a pack of dogs. One group in particular, The REAPS Projet, is now going outside of FetLife to other websites to do their internet policing and using FetLife as their base.
You agree that, while using BitLove Inc.s Products and Services, you will not:
Personally attack, make fun of, troll, flame, bully, stalk or otherwise harass another member.
Make criminal accusations against another member in a public forum.
These groups are doing exactly what FetLife has stated not to do. FetLife has a group of individuals called CareTakers that are suppose to handle complaints. If someone is a fake or violated FetLifes rule on Copyright then the member should be reported to the CareTakers and let them investigate it and take care of it. There is no need to have groups that employ Stasi like tactics operate within its website but FetLife's staff seems to look away and let these groups do it. Now if a member that was not part of one of the above mentioned groups did what they do they would either get an official FetLife warning or have their account banned. I am wondering what these groups will start pointing their accusatory fingers at next. Will it be a members profile pic? Will it be a member's age? Will it be what they write in their profile? Will it be where a member is from? Will it be the friends they have? Will it be their race or religion? Will it be their sexual preference? Get rid of these groups FetLife before they ruin the reputation of your website and your membership dwindles.
I would like to close with these little words of caution. Current members you need to be aware that you are being watched by these Big Brother groups. Individuals that plan on joining FetLife you also need to be made aware that you will be watched as well so join at your own risk. Now for me I have had it with FetLife looking the other way concerning these types of secret police groups. My account is now sitting in their delete queue.
