In short, yes.
With YouTube greatly cracking down on various predator catching channels, many of the best catchers have moved to other platforms for their live catches, or have just stopped doing live catches entirely. The most prominent catchers have started using Locals, a subsidiary of Rumble that is for paid members.
These actions have hurt the community. What was once a quite unified community has become frayed. There is no central place anymore to watch live catches, and the ones that do live catches have to refrain from exposing the suspected predators personal information. We are unable to continue to catalog predators when we don’t know know their identity.
Most of the people do not know much of what I’ve done behind the scenes to help and contribute to the community or all the services that I have provided to this community. I was building a full platform impervious to Big Tech’s censorship.
What was once an invigorating and enjoyable contribution has become difficult and more of a chore than anything. At this point, I’ve lost the drive that I once had and I don’t care to spend anymore of my time or money on this project.
Before I take the website offline, I will archive every predator’s profile that we have cataloged to make sure that the information can always be found again and their dirty deeds are never forgotten.
I would like to remind everyone, I have not accepted a single donation that has been offered to me. I was never here for money or clout, but purely for what this movement should be about which is keeping children safe.
