what? what is going on with ONTD?
I’m not really sure but the gist of it is that disgruntled ex-members have apparently been reporting posts to the sources, resulting in a large number of sources being banned (including massive ones like TMZ). It started with the principal article-posters (isntdaveone, hawaii_bombay, wonderwomanhero etc.) being suspended and has only escalated from there. And that’s meaning that the posts which remain are really scraping the bottom of the barrel, and some legendary old posts (‘everyone was dad and it was terrible’ for example) have disappeared.
Brenden and ecctv have apparently been hinting that they’ll let us know what, if anything, they’re changing as a result, leading to rumours that there was going to be some sort of big announcement on Monday, which of course never materialised. Now everyone is going in on ONTD’s current state like they’re vultures which, being members, I guess they (we) are in the first placce.
There’s also been a lawsuit against ONTD for reposting pics, which I think is over now or at least at first instance has found in LJ’s favour. It’s a messy situation and no one really knows what’s going on.
