WELP. We finally found out why #NaNoWriMo never investigated reports of child predators exploiting minors in their organization, via leaked DMs by staff members.

And it’s way worse than simple incompetence. Via leaked screenshots, we have current #NaNoWriMo staff members stating that the allegations were just “purity culture enthusiasts” trying to slander one of their moderators.

Their investigation was basically asking the mod, “Did you do this?” And the mod saying “Nope!”

Remember how the quirky "write a book in 30 days" #NaNoWriMo program allegedly ignored reports of minors possibly being funneled to a ADBL fetish site from their forum & allegedly didn't investigate even tho it allegedly involved one of their mods?

*Pepperidge Farm Remembers*🧵

So, back in May I was part of a group of 100+ users who uncovered this.

It was freaking *bad*. Like, trauma territory. First thing we did is file a FBI report.

We then reported it to #NaNoWriMo. “hey you need to investigate this since this person is a mod & these are minors”

Alright, I’m done. DONE.

I deleted my kids’ Roblox accounts, and recommend you guys do too.

I just spent six hours playing the games meant for 5-year-olds and it was freaking awful.

Something is very wrong with Roblox Corp.

Screenshots/video to follow. Look, I don’t subscribe to the “violent video games cause bad kids” theory (which has been disproven).

This isn’t about that.

It’s about Roblox *manually* curating content for LITERAL KIDS age 4-8 that should never have made it past their supposedly age-gated moderation.
