Mma Carnivale/My Epic Drama Site / BEWARE: MMA CARNIVALE/MyEpicDramaSite are Cult Sites
This is my story of my involvement in an immoral internet cult, which changed my life and affected everything, causing me to lose my job, my wife, my humanity, and left me deeply depressed and lost.
I registered at a site called MMA Carnivale, a site that was ostensibly about combat sports and ultimate fighting. I became friends and chatted with people on the site, and it seemed normal at first. I spent hours every day, and the leaders of this site made me feel welcome and drew me in.
Then things started strange. It started feeling like being in a cult, with pressure on members to conform and do what the leaders wanted of them. They requested your contact details, like phone numbers, Facebook, and other information, and encouraged members to reveal everything about themselves.
They also requested members "support" them with monetary donations and engaged in attacking other website, and some said they were members of Anonymous.
What really ended it for me was when I saw how the owners and admin and moderators and member body used personal information of users against them, through blackmail and coercion, and tried to exert total control of their members and brainwash them into a collective hive.
I felt my identity slipping, I had donated hundreds of dollars, spend 12 hours a day, everyday, was asked to attack other sites and shown how to hack, and when I started questioning and disagreeing, I started receiving threatening and harassing e-mails to my work e-mail and friends and family in real life were contacted and malicious stories about me spread.
I strongly urge everyone to stay away from the site MMA Carnivale, and it's sister site, MyEpicDramaSite, who are owned and directed by the same people and used to brainwash naive people. They are the classic definitions of cults, and do everything to hold people hostage and use personal information against them.
