A better question is, "Why??"

This forum has a number of exploitable weaknesses and because of the activity of a select few members, some current and former members of the forum asked me to do a go-around at seeing just how borked the current architecture is so that appropriate measures could be taken to ensure privacy and security. If it's safe enough they'll post again and if it's not safe enough they won't post again, no biggie

I can't count the number of times someone has seen one of my posts and masturbated to them.

vulnerabilities exist. IM's may possibly be read and you can cross-reference posting activity with IP addresses accessing the site over a period of time in order to isolate users' IP addresses, as two specific examples. Odd but mostly usually harmless things may be done to tables. use caution and as usual please be advised to refrain livetweeting your social security number during peak hours

It's been kind of weird and people have had trouble staying invested, but it gets by.

Overall activity keeps going down because the forum is all but entirely unmanaged and it's oddly hard to actually get an account registered, so most stop trying

The comic sub-forum is fairly robust I'd say, but yeah, verification seems somewhat problematic.
