Hello FWRs

Has anyone signed up to spinster.xyz yet? It’s like twitter but without the misogyny. No banning for stating biological truths. See you over there hopefully

Jeanhatchet Mon 12-Aug-19 16:20:19

I joined. But blokes are already joining sadly. They can't take a hint that we need some space

TinDogTavern Mon 12-Aug-19 16:22:15

I've joined. We'll see how it pans out I guess. I'm @katharine there.

hungryhippie Mon 12-Aug-19 16:23:37

I joined. I'm hoping we eventually get subsections as it will just get confusing.

Beebeequeue Mon 12-Aug-19 16:25:41

Are they joining maliciously? angry
It would be impossible to run a female only platform though wouldn’t it? At least they will be banned if posts are not female centric? And I guess we could block individuals. I like that we can state facts without getting no platformed. ps I’m a huge fan of yours flowers

Yes, I've joined.

There will be more men trolling, pretending to be women posters, than there are women. Women can't be allowed to talk without oversight by the overlords.

One man is already complaining that he has been banned for putting pronouns in his profile.

On the plus side it's feminist controlled but it will be cat nip for fake female accounts, lurking, attempts to dox and DDOS attacks. Much like FWR.

I might join up at some point. I'm not one of life's early adopters - I only recently joined twitter. grin

Ah, but we can call a spade a spade on spinster, unlike here! @MNHQ might want to take note, they might lose their bread and butter (posters) to spinster with their awful rules on the trans issue.

Cocolapew Mon 12-Aug-19 17:05:20

Yes I've joined, but it took me ages to figure out Twitter so I'm not sure how I'll get on blush

grin oh dear, that's quite amusing

littlbrowndog Mon 12-Aug-19 17:24:41

Pronouns ffs. Pronouns. Anyway I haven’t joined yet but seen it about on twitter

RhymesWithOrange Mon 12-Aug-19 17:28:44

I'm there!

Does it resemble Twitter then?* I've never been on Twitter, I hate the format. On the other hand a site that bans idiots and their idiot pronouns does have a certain appeal............

*I'd check it out but am at work just now

RhymesWithOrange Mon 12-Aug-19 17:34:56

I don't think it's practicable to ban men on an anonymous platform but you can choose to ignore the male voices.

Just joined 😁

Juells Mon 12-Aug-19 18:04:06

I'm a bear of very little brain, as I can't figure out how to use it grin

I've signed in, and now can't see how to find anything.

Juells Mon 12-Aug-19 18:10:05

I think the interface needs to be a bit more user-friendly for it to take off. sad If you sign in and can't find threads or conversations it's not great.

2Rebecca Mon 12-Aug-19 18:26:22

I presume there are no threads and it's like twitter. If there are threads I havent found them

AncientLights Mon 12-Aug-19 18:27:57

I've just signed up. A man banned for posting his pronouns? grin

JoxerGoesToStuttgart Mon 12-Aug-19 18:31:45

I’ve joined. But am watching what happens before deciding if i’ll Stay. As others have said I expect lots of trolls.

Lawlsie1976 Mon 12-Aug-19 18:32:29

Just joined. I'm @MissLawls

ErrolTheDragon Mon 12-Aug-19 18:32:37

I've never been tempted by twitter so I'm not sure I'll bother. Curious about the choice of name, doesn't sound very appealing ... maybe that's intentional.
