None of the names in this are real. This all takes place on Amino.
Basically I was like 12 when this all happened. Through this guy named Fred (creep guy) I get invited to the Wendys groupchat. Now there were like 10-20 people in this chat but I remember like 4. Anyways 2 people were talking shit about this girl on like snapchat or something. There was a reason but I forgot it. I suggest the idea of a second groupchat to Fred after he tells me this and he rolls with it. He makes a new gc and we start inviting random people we know. We call it dennys as a spinoff of wendys. Then we autistically yell at the 2 people for like 3 hours until Fred and the others get a strike from the mods for not behaving. I start crying irl because I feel like a criminal for befriending someone who got a strike and I leave the chat out of fear. But Fred kept it around and soon more people were joining dennys and put shit abt it in their bios. Meanwhile, I stalk those 2 people and feel bad.
Eventually, a friend I knew from somewhere else named Tatiana joins. I apologize to Fred and he invites me back to dennys. I am immediately met with weird dirty humor about a kangaroo pussy my little 11 year old brain was not prepared for. I learned many things in that server. I also meet Ezekiel for the first time (the racist guy). The chat was a constant game of “guys delete the message where you said “balls” I dont want my parents seeing :(((“ like I was basically a baby to most of them. Also Tatiana kept repetitively venting in the chat even when people were joking around. She clearly had some major issues and drew a lot of edgy art, but the way she forced it onto other people was terrible. I had to talk her out of suicide a few times. Keep in mind, I was 11 and she was like, 15. Also Ezekiel had a crush on me and put a little puzzle in his bio about who his crush was that was super obviously about me. It was pretty cringe. He was only a year older than me, so it wasnt like he was a pedophile, but I hope he grew out of how he acted. I can honestly say my weird little 11 year old brain may have had a small crush on him, but I rejected him because I didn’t date online. He also had these two friends with eddsworld pfps who would say really gay shit to each other and joke about cocks a lot. Apparently one of them was from the same city as me so I’ve probably seen him in public and haven’t realized. Anyways, Ezekiel and his friends were also serious about the mods of the site and would talk about how they suck constantly. The mods had some somewhat unfair rules, but they weren’t really tyrants or anything looking back on it. Sure, people would draw a lot of art for them so it kind of made it look like they were getting people to suck up, but they can’t fucking control that! They banned community posts that were less than 4 sentences unless they were art, which is a pretty fair rule for an app like Amino where you have to keep the discussion going, especially when the community is 100,000+ and full of 10 year olds who spam “whats your favorite character” polls everywhere. They also banned people who stole/traced art. Again, fair. But apparently this was like, infringing on human rights to some people for some bullshit reason. Probably banned some edgy stuff they liked too. And look, I love edgy stuff sometimes (maybe not their brand of “edgy”, it was very redditorlike) but Amino is mostly elementary schoolers, 30% gacha lifey spergy middle schoolers, and 10% even spergier high schoolers. Idk. Anyways, Ezekiel eventually gets banned for putting some rude comment on a mod’s post. They knew he was encouraging people to harass mods through red lobster. It gets shut down too and the whole group chat is lost. He tries to rejoin the Amino 25 TIMES and each time he gets banned. No joke.
All of this shit at the time felt like WW3 to me, but if this happened today I’d shrug it all off. Still, it marks a significant loss of innocence.
Shortly after, Tatiana deletes her account. I get really sad because I was scared she killed herself. According to Ezekiel she turned out to be fine, but sometimes I wonder if shes still out there on some other side of the internet. It’d be fun to talk to her again.
Eventually, after like half a year, I apologize to him through Instagram and he invites me to this groupchat with his irl friends. Thats when hes racist all the time, and every other conversation is about sex. Apparently he had some gf who liked mlp or something. Some gf who beat him up. And his current gf he was going to have sex with on new years. He was 13. In Poland you can buy condoms at that age so it wasn’t like it was super unsafe but still that’s pretty wild imo. I had no idea if he actually did it since I didn’t stay that long. And yknow what, it’s none of my business.
As for the Fred guy. Uh. Apparently I sent a random photo of my feet into a gc somewhere and he saved it. And according to a much nicer way less creepy friend I still dm on discord to this day, he was having a convo with Fred and apparently he found them hot. I was 12. He was like, 15. He knew this. Gross. The groupchat that originated from is very interesting as well, but the story includes a bunch of weird lolcowy stuff on my part that I dont feel like sharing. Tbf this was 6 years ago, but still.
I think thats the extent of what I remember.
