Hello, my name is Aoki and i made the bashing thread some years ago as a way for members to be able to express how they feel, because back in those days on AKP saying anything could get you banned. There was no freedom of speech period. Eventually the mods took over my thread and added rules. It was never a thread that was supposed to hurt feelings, if u go all the way to the first page u can see it in my post. It was supposed to be lighhearted and in a ''funny diss'' type of way. Things have obviously turned very toxic, hateful and ignorant. I do feel that as long as mods dont try to censor users too much on the forum, while keeping in mind that users keep their honest opinions respectful we could def get rid of the thread. Just the input from a old AKP-user who started that thread.
