Post by scooter »

Somebody has to explain this to me.

With locks on the doors and such?)...but they also used the name "the Cosby suite" among them? And then proceeded to actually pose for a group pic in that suite while holding a picture of Bill Cosby? :shock:

Yeah, no wonder their communities end up getting really toxic. They make pretty games but they are often ruined by poor moderation and gross users. I guess that makes more sense now.

I was legitimately questioning that. Did I actually get that situation right? They actually did this? And I think it was like five years ago?

Oh yeah, it definitely happened. I saw the photos all over Twitter including "Why? Is that wrong?" confirmations from some of those involved.
