Add Bluelight, it is a drug forum

Bastard factory is cool
I'm gonna add Bluelight, but it's gonna get put at the bottom due to,

https://www.bluelight.org/community/pages/BLUA/ said:
You may not use Bluelight in any way, shape or form for unlawful purposes, including, without limitation attempting to solicit, obtain sell or supply contraband substances or substances of a quasi-legal status or requesting information on how to do so;
How do you not allow your members to talk about proper drug sourcing on a drug forum??? Also, their rules are a little bit too long for my comfort.

Because that isn't the purpose of the forum. Bluelight is not a forum created for the purpose of helping others procure substances, instead, as stated on the site, "Bluelight is an international, online, harm-reduction community committed to reducing the harms associated with drug use. "

If you want help with substance procurement or synthesis, go to https://bbgate.com

So we're going to promote 50% of harm reduction, but we're not gonna do the other 50% (which, I would argue, may be the more important 50% of harm reduction) because... Reasons? But yeah, Breaking Bad forums seem good, but they look pretty new... Hm. Not sure whether to add them.

I suppose that drug procurement portion of harm reduction is important, but allowing that type of discussion on the clear net and on a popular form comes with it's own host of problems.

Greetings friends!👋

I felt today particularly narcissistic, enough to search my moniker and find this thread, and this forum.

The Carnal Scholar shared a 6TB PMV torrent here
How you learn of a forum can be so bizarre
As a fellow forum dweller, it is refreshing to be reminded that not all of the important online discourse happens on discord and reddit and twitter. There will always be dark, dirty, unoccupied corners of the internet, like milovana.com and like this place and all the others you are cataloging, where people can speak freely and post hard.💪

Thank you! I hope you'll stay here with us (and follow our sparse rules). <3 And yep, forum master race for the win.

Yo

Ya know, I found this highly suspect since after searching your moniker on several search engines, this thread/forum never showed in the results.
Searching "6TB PMV" though has this thread as the first and only result
Regardless of how you got here I'm glad you stopped by to stay hi
The internet be neat that way
Enjoy da forum life

Oooohhh, very interesting site. I'm a bit of a sucker for 80s/90s/vaporwave, and sexy girls. One or two of the rules are a little silly, but I like it. It may be a qualifier for SG. Maybe also T&T, though that is more questionable. The general level of site activity may also be in question as well.

milovana.com
Whoops, forgot about this site. Yeah, it would have been a pretty good site to add, but I see they have an invite-only system. While I totally get that bots are a big problem, and probably especially with a site dedicated to sexy times, it still massively hampers new blood coming in. And also, I'm sorry, but fuck Reddit, man. There has to be a better way for them to bring on new people.

New list of potential candidates for inclusion to the list.

Reinvent Yourself:

Deific Discussions:

Fringe Division:
https://forum.becomealivinggod.com/ (Maybe just a tad too niche.)
https://wizardforums.com/ (Like BALG but seems to be better quality. It's sadly smaller in size though.)

https://rpghq.org/forums/index.php was actually added to the list a while ago but I forgot to bump this thread for that. I apologize.

Oh, I also decided to not include https://vipergirls.to/ in the end as they seem to be solely a video and photo dump site instead of an actual discussion forum.
actualized.org has been pulled from the list of potentials due to a self-admitted very harsh set of rules. It almost sounds like they don't even fully believe they'll be completely objective in their judgements and know they're being very vague. As such, their assurances to "high-quality content" are not reassuring. It gets even more hypocritical when you see how they won't accept discussions on "conspiracy theories" but there's an entire sub-forum dedicated partly to mysticism and the paranormal. I like the straight up honesty on their rules pages about their objectives, but c'mon, guys. You can be better than this. Clean up the mess that is your rules and I'll have another look at you.

spiritualforums.com has been pulled from the list of potentials due to being too family friendly for no good reason. No drugs, no insults, no political discussions, no "conspiracy theories", no swearing, no sarcasm, no "harassment", no trolling, no mature topics, no arguments, no mentoring, and no fun allowed.

forum.becomealivinggod.com has been pulled from the list of potentials for being just a little too niche and the rules being a little too restrictive.

wizardforums.com will be added, but its rules are a little iffy. Its activity is also in question, but perusing around the forums, I saw just enough different members for it to qualify.

https://arguefreely.com/FAQ seems like trash, requiring 2FA through a smartphone, clicking yes on TOS every visit, and only allows you to respond 3 times a day.. but it's supposedly a Free Speech "forum".
Nothing illegal pweeeasseee...
>_>

No “appeal to authority” is allowed. Do not claim to be an “expert”.
Who cares? If someone claims to be an "expert" and they're spouting obvious dumb shit, they're gonna get laughed at and called out and their reputation within the community goes down. If someone tries to use an appeal to authority on a real free speech website, then it's gonna be questioned, and perhaps later, bashed. Ironically, you shouldn't foster an environment where the users will think the staff is going to come in to save them from any attempts at misinformation, intentional or otherwise. You foster a spirit of intellectual independence as much as possible. You want your users to dig. To reach into the unknown and break bad mental habits. Question everything. Especially yourself.

lmao

We believe that the popular arguments will be popular precisely because they will resonate the most with the people - appeal the most to their sense of reason and logic.
Yeah, go tell Reddit that.

we require two-factor authentication (sending an authentication code as a text to a smartphone)
So... You're so hell-bent on privacy but you need my fucking phone number? Fucking wat?

This site keeps getting worse and worse the more I look at it. What is this forum software??? Baby's first forum. Holy shit. Just use SMF. Stahp this madness.

Possible new candidate for And Rock & Roll. XenForo powered and... Doesn't seem to have any rules? Alright I suppose.

I got curious about this forum again and decided to see how they were doing, and I got slapped with a big ol' 403 Forbidden error if I click on just about anything on the site. Well, looks like we're not the only one that had a configuration oopsie. Let's just hope though that it's not a sign of it getting shut down eventually.

EDIT: Site's back up.

I've been checking in on their profile posts regularly
