Forums can be great to chat to likeminded people, but some are just sick. Jeremy Wilson compiles some of the most vile internet forums around.
Forums have been a mainstay of the internet ever since its inception. They mirror the people who frequent them and since most people are extremely dull, they are chock-full of tedious drivel. But some people are twisted, deranged and disturbed, and while the forums they frequent are dull, the sickening content they contain is made all the more shocking because of it.
Here are the forums that reflect the worst of humanity.
The subreddit spacedicks is a little hard to describe. It’s a place where connoisseurs can post and comment on the the vilest gore ever committed to celluloid. Severed penises feature prominently.
9. Beast Forum
Claiming to be “THE BIGGEST AND BEST BEAST/ZOO SITE ON THE PLANET”, Beast Forum is the meeting place for people who are sexually attracted to animals. From deep discussions about the mechanics of making love to different animals to galleries of humans and animals in the act, zoophiles aren’t shortchanged by the site. Popular threads include “K9 Anal” and “Dog Vagina”. It even includes a personal ads section.
It’s difficult to comprehend how people could hate another ethnicity so much that they join an online community dedicated to hating them. But they do and if you hate black people, the place to be is chimpout. The vulgar racism is upsetting, but it’s the callus calls for genocide that are the most depressing.
The touchstone for racist hate sites, Stormfront has been the go to meeting ground for white supremacists online since 1990. The forum’s resident bores, not able to spew their crackpot ideologies in the real world, have to make do with spouting their pseudo-intellectual garbage to their enlightened virtual friends. Current hot topics of conversation include “Top 10 reasons why the holocaust didn’t happen” and “Why Did You Join The KKK?”
6. Cute dead guys
Some people like their men warm and breathing, others, like the members of cute dead guys, prefer them to have a touch of rigor mortis. You didn’t know there were this many pictures of shirtless guys lying on the floor with a bullet through the head. Disturbingly, cutedeadguys has a personal ads section – “Necro seeking necro. Any in my neighbourhood?”
Wanting to have sex with members of your family is not normal. Hanging around a forum begging for pictures of a stranger’s sister after he has just told an elaborate story of how he seduced her is not normal. The subreddit /r/incest is not normal.
The users of the GoreGrish forum take morbid obsession with death to the next level. It’s like a collectors club, but instead of postage stamps and skewered butterflies, it’s filled with pictures of Mexican drug executions and teenage suicides.
3. Savage violation
People are entitled to fantasies, but it’s probably best not to let some dark desires run wild. Especially if those fantasies involve rape. But that’s exactly what the members of Savage Violation do.
A place to discuss the merits of rock legends U2. Vile.
While most paedophiles are content to conduct their online activity under the cloak of anonymity tools such as the TOR web browser, others are more brazen. Annabelleigh is a meeting place for “girl lovers”, a place where the finer points of being attracted to children can be discussed.
