Forum moderator here

Hi everyone, I'm your friendly, anonymous neighbourhood moderator. This is a bit of an experiment. GS Confessions currently doesn't have a publicly posted code of conduct. It's a holdover from an earlier internet era. That has both good and bad parts. It does make it very difficult to moderate in any effective way. Comments like "Get rid of the hate," are unhelpful -- how are we defining hate vs disagreement? What is a healthy level of conflict and disagreement to have? With that in mind, what would you like to see in a Confessions code of conduct for posters / code of moderation for the online team? What ideas do you have for this section? How can I do my job better? Let's have a healthy discussion.

I know I’ve reached a life milestone

I used to love fashion, getting dressed up, colours, textures, thrifting for unique finds, etc. accessorizing, peacocking, being stylish. Now I look forward to wearing my black Walmart hoodie. Lost the desire to open my wallet, to shop, spend hours doing all the above, to impress and influence the outside world. This is the post-consumerist me.


If she wanted to just completely break a guy in half and ruin his heart and soul for anyone else to have, she succeeded. One million percent.

Spider art = good. Vancouver City terrible at art.

While you're taking that down, can you also take down the stairs to nowhere at the field right by the PNE? That isn't even an art installation. It's an eye-sore and a danger to all the kids who climb on it. Actually, you should move the spider to the field there. That would be smart. The spider is cool.

How to deal with workplace bullies

Anytime bullies at work try to oppress you, just threaten to call the Union. You’d be surprised how often that works every time. The word “Union” alone makes them cringe because they know that Union have a very low tolerance policy for bullying, and will hold them accountable to the fullest extent. Put these fuckers in their place and they’ll leave you alone. Problem solved.

Not so secret confession now..

But I wish the lower mainland were like Nebraska where we all turned to Jesus & lived godly lives worked hard raised traditional families where men were men & ladies were ladies no fancy flamboyant living basic living children respected their parents & elders no internet no tv or cellphones sitting as a family at dinnertime in prayerful rock music no rap or jazz no reggae no disco.....just music that lifts us up to the lord no fancy type flashy Bible's....just the traditional one that's real.

Confession caught red handed

Several years ago someone submitted a Confession here about their rage at something I did and that they would get violent next time it happened but they didn't even communicate to me that they believed I did something wrong! I just happened to read it here by chance!!! I had no idea! I cut all ties to that person and the friends I knew him through because that is a scary way to find out someone is SO mad at you they want to physically hurt you! It wasn't even something I did, it was something done by a friend I brought and as soon as I was aware I made it clear it wasn't cool but the rage was published regardless. Worrisome.

Clear Bra Straps

What's the point of dat? Obviously you're wearing a bra or those sweater puppies be swingin'. Which... they should be, imho.

Love, Burnaby-style

When you dump someone and they need control so badly that they come back with anger, telling you to go away when you already left long ago. Everyone needs a coping mechanism to protect their hearts, I guess, especially to mask deep regret. Not. My. Problem.
