Maybe if everyone sick of the inane TikTok onslaught emailed Mediapolis? As unrelentingly stupid as the TikToks are, the headlines and intro posts are criminally cringe - as though they were written by an overweight 12 year old girl no one likes.

I’m surprised people haven’t FFd it to oblivion. The posts are so obnoxious and posted 20 times a day even if they only get 2 replies. Which are both sock puppet posts and then on to the next one.
This tiktok troll is basically vandalizing datalounge and it needs to stop.

TikTok is the most prominent social media platform of the moment, it is bound to be replaced by something else by the end of the year. Just hold on and it will be meaningless soon enough. When was the last time you saw a hot gay guys of Vine thread?

Sometimes he posts such cute guys, that DL will make a comment. Thus, 1 affirmation of interest is enough. People like Edwina block out everything negative to continue their obsessional tic, whatever it is.

I have the same issue with the Tik Tok posts as I do with the Harry and Meghan posts. Why can't they all be contained in one megathread? Why can't they just start a thread that is titled "Hot Tik Tok Guys Part 1" or "Harry and Meghan News Part 1" to keep it all contained in one space?

The new threads is part of the obsession compulsion. It's a cataloguing. We get freaks like this all the time. Remember that one who was creating multiple threads a day that were listicles of vintage pop music.
We had one last week with dozens of threads about Madonna. And her nose. And comparing her to randos, like Lainie Kazan and Chloë Sevigny. Remember PMBT? What do you think of this German guy?

It’s not a matter of “thinking” who it is. We KNOW who it is and if you click on any of the videos you would see exactly who it is too because they’re all linked directly from his account.

If you are a self-loathing minority fine but when you try to pretend you’re woke when in reality your sexual preferences reveal you to be racist, you look pathetic to all sides.
Then again, if Edwin was even remotely cute, others would let him get away with it...

The bitching and moaning about TikTok (which I fundamentally agree with) is kind of funny, because DL has always had Aspie trolls who’ve regularly linked to external sites others don’t really care about.

In (partial) defense of R70/R72, you see Edwin's fat face pop up on the screen when clicking these Tik Tok links on mobile and tablet devices, but [italic]not[/italic] desktop. So it's possible not to have seen it, if you're only using desktops to view Datalounge. Small mercies.
[quote]You obviously missed all the hysteria when he doxxed himself and claimed he had everyone's IP addresses and was calling the police.
He claimed to have actually filed a police report with the NYPD. I'd pay money for a copy of that.
[quote]So if someone posts a TikTok link here, you can actually see the poster's TikTok user name?
I don't use Tik Tok, but apparently there are two ways to share their links. One way does indeed show the user name of the person sharing the link, the other way links right to the video.
[quote]the headlines and intro posts are criminally cringe - as though they were written by an overweight 12 year old girl no one likes.
You mean you aren't impressed by grown men who start their sentences with "omg" and end them in "lmao"?
[quote]That's the guy who wanted to be best buddies with Shockgobbler.
And Dylan Geick, before Dylan told him to fuck off and unfollow him. That was hilarious. He was also clearly the one stalking Harrison from Lowe's, and getting VERY upset if it was ever pointed out.
[quote]I think Edwin feels alienated from gay life because he is unwanted and unattractive. He tries to overcompensate by posting about his "dream" guys.
I also think this is true. It's pretty sad that for some, who are handicapped by their own circumstances, thirsting after unattainable guys on Tik Tok is the only way they can express their sexuality. I suspect that religion is involved as well. However, it really has been turned up a notch here in recent days/weeks.

I wouldn’t even mind it as much if it was one thread that he and/or others contributed to.
The problem is he’s literally spamming the board with numerous, numerous threads. Anyone else would’ve been banned from any other site. I’ve been on some message boards where if you respond too quickly to two or three posts in a row the website automatically puts you on a timeout because it thinks you’re a bot spamming.
