Is anybody else tired of TikTokLounge?

What is with all these inane TikTok we're being bombarded with??

by Anonymousreply 9802/22/2021

It's that queen Edwina who keeps posting them.

by Anonymousreply 102/19/2021

Yes, OP. YES!!

A bazillion times yes! And we can’t even fucking block them anymore.

There's someone relatively new who types in all caps at frequent points. I like that guy.

It’s Edwin lounge. Ugh. For the first time in 12 years, I might leave Datalounge if it doesn’t stop.

by Anonymousreply 602/19/2021

God, yes. I started to post this today. First it was random “hot” guys, then incesty twins, now we are getting fucking Tic Tac fraus molding salami! Stop the madness!

YES! A couple are OK but this is too much

by Anonymousreply 1002/19/2021

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 don't mind. However, I'm in India where TikTok is banned so I don't even bother reading those threads.

R19 Thanks for letting us know.

by Anonymousreply 2002/19/2021

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.

by Anonymousreply 2102/20/2021

He could be a Chinese spy for all we know pushing people onto those links to scrape their info.

I don’t click on any of it. It’s sketchy af. Like a way to bait gay people into clicking.

by Anonymousreply 2202/20/2021

I love TikTok!

R21 He's been doing it for ages and then runs to Muriel when people call him out on it. He outed himself then got all mental threatening to get the police involved.

He's obviously very unwell and desperately lonely.

by Anonymousreply 2402/20/2021

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?

Is it really one person or more? He/They could just create one main thread maybe titled TikTokLounge.

by Anonymousreply 3002/20/2021

Just FF each one and don’t click on them. That’s about all we can do. Trolls eventually go away.

by Anonymousreply 3102/20/2021

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.

R27, are you sure about that? I don’t open TikTok links but the are often posted within threads I am reading.

by Anonymousreply 3502/20/2021

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?

by Anonymousreply 3602/20/2021

Not entirely sure R35 , but every time I check my list of cookies there's usually a TikTok one and I never watch the vids.

How could anyone get tired of vapid remarks from self-absorbed bores?

by Anonymousreply 3802/20/2021

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?

R39 it's not the same thing. The TikTok threads are clickbaity bullshit written by some mentally damaged troll. They appear one after the other in batches at various times a day, and then get bumped repeatedly.

Also to the "Edwin" trolls: NO ONE CARES WHO YOU THINK THIS ALLEGED PERSON IS. You are as BAD and just as annoying as the people spamming TikTok links.

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.

I think Edwin feels alienated from gay life because he is unwanted and unattractive. He tries to overcompensate by posting about his "dream" guys.

As long as the dudes are hot, and current, keep posting them!

R39, you have a point; thing is, the Tik Tok troll(s) could be dealt with very easily by simply banning links to Tik Tok. If Muriel can ban CNN, she can ban Tik Tok.

Isn't this troll the same person who complains about transplants in NYC? How weird because he types like a 13 year old girl from Dallas.

Yes Edwin is the same guy that complains about about white people moving to New York r59.

He also claimed to have been doxxed when in actual fact he'd posted a link to his own account then said he was getting the police and FBI involved. He's not very clever.

Edwin is such a pathetic Latino.

I’m Latino too, and I can so easily see though Latinos who pretended to be woke and against the whole patriarchy and yet they desperately lust after straight white boys exclusively.

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...

All of our worst trolls dox themselves, it's bizarre. Erna, Davida, PPSM, Matt, AYB, and now Edwin. It's like a compulsion.

R71 I've heard, yet seen no proof.

by Anonymousreply 7202/21/2021

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.

When I first started coming here in the mid-00s, there were constantly links to BigMuscle profiles....

by Anonymousreply 7302/21/2021

R72 You obviously missed all the hysteria when he doxxed himself and claimed he had everyone's IP addresses and was calling the police.

by Anonymousreply 7402/21/2021

Well that was before Muriel took away the thread watcher, R73. It was fine when you could easily follow your favorite topics but now without it you’re just subjected to whatever’s front and center whenever you visit. That means being bombarded with TikTok threads and other obsessive topics.

by Anonymousreply 7502/21/2021

Tiktok is a bunch of short videos featuring whores being whores. Even that one of the gay looking straight guy fully clothed with the text about his disney princess wife features a whore being a whore.

I hear what you’re saying, but I thought Latinos were white, especially Puerto Ricans like that hooker in the hotel who pushed that black boy she claimed stole her iPhone?

by Anonymousreply 8802/21/2021

Latinos aren't a race. Latino means you speak a Romance language (Spanish, French and Portuguese) and a citizen of Latin America. There are white Latinos, turn on Telemundo and that's all you will see.

by Anonymousreply 8902/21/2021

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.

Eggweener has an unsupportive family apparently (I read somewhere on something of his).

by Anonymousreply 9102/21/2021

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.

Yes R92 but Muriel allows Edwina anything she wants. The NYPD complaint seems to have worked!
