The amount of needless angst posted in that group makes me sick. If I read one more, "it's tearing me apart," or, "I fucking hate him/her for 'it'," or, "It hurts...," I just, I don't know what I'll do.
If only those kiddos knew anything of the kinds of horrid things happening outside of their personal pity party. Unbelievable the kind of ignorance I've read there. I almost become insulted by it.
It's one of the reasons people should focus more on supporting psychological professionals and mental help groups. There are a lot of things that would be better about the world if people only knew how to properly use the tools given them.
But see the human mentality in trained to be self-focused so it makes sure the self survives first and is more important than others. Your brain basically tricks you into thinking "I AM SPECIAL" and unless you take that message with a grain of salt, you will believe you are the single most unique person on earth.
A secret is something you keep to yourself, not something you tell everybody and if you don't want people to see things, don't post them to public. Just because people can't comment, doesn't mean people can't judge. Anybody can link to the 'secret' or do a dramatic reading on it. They're still going to receive feedback, disabling comments just tells everybody else they're scared of what others have to say.
Gosh, DAS is so bad, it's like they're human or something.
Seriously, everyone on that group sound like whiny little cunts. DAS is a small group of people operating a very popular club, and for obvious reasons that can't just get anyone to help. You think it's poory run? That's great. Start a new one and run it yourself, then.
I commend your effort in this post and disagree with the childish antics posted below.
However, I must admit I'd never heard of da secrets before reading your post and a little bit of research into the topic has got me wholeheartedly against the entire purpose of it. It gives angsty teenagers another way to post their made up bullshit and cry about how life is unfair. Not to mention the implications of more serious (if real) secrets being exploited and made worse by the good ol Internet trolls. The idea could be a fun concept but the way it is now is a joke and has no place on a website about art.
Ultimately life is unfair posting little secrets on a group is pathetic and childish. Deal with them or better yet don't have any in the first place! That's my view o,o
Thanks for the comment, your sane voice is appreciated!
You should seriously check out Post Secret (the link is in the rant). It's really a wonderful project and the guy travels to colleges all over to give talks and supports positive resolutions to those who have problems
As for the spam, think nothing of it. There is a method to the madness
