FUBAR – SOCIAL NETWORKING AT IT’S WORST
It’s unfortunate that most who sign up for this site do not see the site for what it truly has become until after they have paid out some real money. The more real life money you spend, the more people are allowed to get away with. The site, which is primarily operated out of Santa Rosa, California, is in violation of many of the states Internet business laws, in addition to being in violation of California’s very strict anti Internet stalking laws. Including myself, there have been over 100 documented cases of people deleting because they have been stalked, threatened with physical harm, etc and yet the greedy people in charge of fubar have chosen to look the other way.
Only then will fubar actually take action. I myself have been on the site for over a year, much longer than you have, and to me, there is something seriously wrong when long time original members are leaving the site. Yes there are games on the site, games where people are enabled to cheat at by spending large amounts of money on the site. The site owner, BabyJ, has adopted a practice of turn the other way when they spend large amounts of real money. I would also like to point out the fact that the site uses malicious spyware and adware programs which on several occasions have created security issues on my own computer. After running a malware removal program, it was discovered that about 95% of the malicious spyware on my computer came directly from fubar itself.
There are also tremendous security issues within the site as well, ones that have caused people to find out their “stored” credit cards were charged excessive amounts of money, and even though the website admitted fault, they refused to refund the stolen monies, instead only offering “site credits”. The site is a fraud, the “customer service” is non-existent, the bouncers and the owner have chosen to not actually run the site at all, but have turned it into a online zoo. The bouncers and owner(s) spend far more time interacting with other people on the site as opposed to actually monitoring what is going on within the site and actually doing something about the problems that keep rising up. The site is being worked on by “coders” who have little to no experience with designing and maintaining a website, as a result the site crashes repeatedly.
While I have made a few very close friends on there, the site reminds me too much of the drama and B. S. that I witnessed in high school. What is most amusing is that the owner also has his sister, a former “porn actress” on the site, and she uses her status as the owner’s sister to abuse, harass, threaten, stalk, use and manipulate people so that she can stay ” in the top ranks”. While she is doing this, nothing is done, and people that have been members of the site much longer than her are leaving because of her and how her brother, Baby J, have chosen to do things. There are no rewards for those who do not or cannot afford to spend a lot of real money on the site.
It is possible to meet decent people on there, but the decent ones are few and far in between. The site is polluted OurTime with individuals looking for one night stands, perverts, sleazeballs, even prostitutes and letches. I’ve had my share of run ins with some of those. Unfortunately, every time the coders “break” something, he becomes unblocked and begins his stalking all over again. I have had to block him 12 separate times. I also had issues with a former real life friend on there, where even after she harassed and threatened members of my family, fubar still chose to do nothing. In the case of one person I have grown quite close to, it took her being stalked and threatened offline by someone and her local police department to get involved before fubar would even consider banning the stalker.
