    I'm sure you've all noticed the social networking site 'VK' by now.

    It has been popping up on my browsing radar more and more, primarily because it seems to be a popular home for clips of new music; I think the last release I listened to through there was the Frankee EP (although it doesn't look like it was shared by RAM).

    I've done a bit of digging and it's seems to be a Russian social networking site which is currently bullying Facebook out of the market due to it's capacity to showcase adult content, pirate videos and because of it's use as a dating/advanced stalking tool (yeah my interest piqued at this point too). Bit of an overview here.

    However I'm keen to get an idea of why it's suddenly being used as a musical promotion tool, or whether is it just being used to pirate content. I can't really find anything on this.

    Anyone clued up?

    Its a mix of things; in the same way that music groups pop up on facebook, the same things happen on vk where users can post up audio clips and make pages like the ones you listened to the Frankee one on. Due to it being Russian and some site logistics its a lot harder to take stuff down then on Facebook for non-ru native labels(although this doesn't stop all the popular critical releases on there getting taken down :))

    Do it for a laugh man, don't like it don't watch, bitching about everything makes you look like a girl perioding everywhere (like carrie) but I never comment on your statuses about it, end of the day mate it's a forum, people do what they want, u probably don't give a shit about my opinion about ur bitching as I don't give a shit about you bitching at me for writing in the same style as good old karlos, peace

    i saw the truth unfold and then carefully be folded away without so much as a hot breath. this thread has been a success so far, imo. in the life of the forum.

    oh and just to be OT, does anyone have this VK? is it all they say it is? because i got ello.co and im not sure if that things going to amount to much

    Gentleman, we are getting off topic. Mr. dizzledee wants to know about advance stalking techniques, but you two are arguing over writing styles. What has waffle come to? Are we not men who ponder the deepest and most profound issues? On a side note I think I am going to copy the American wanna be whit gangsta trying to write tuff while impersonating English accents he does not understand. Cause it be gangsta 2 writes how's I speaks innit.

    and if it does. how old are they? cos often with these russian looneys the girls are either way too young or so old theyre nearly dead, in fact, im sure there is mung porn with necrophilia out there, so its important to watch your step so you dont zig when you shoulda zagged and click something you really really will regret for as long as you live.

    im not even worried about "cyber crime" or the police coming to take my internet computer and sending me to court, thats secondary to the real problem with these shadey eastern european porn sites, the thing that worries me most, and the real reason i gave up on /b and the like, is that there are some seriously sick people in this woy nerld, and they also have cameras and equipment and sets and stuff, and if youre not careful you can get a 45 HQ picture series of something like 2 girls 1 cup but with added serbian film (so a seriously warped gimp type older guy fucking what remains of the corpse of a 12 yr old in some dimly lit basement which looks like its made for this purpose and has been in use for longer than anyone would want to imagine) and it doesnt stop there, there are literally directories upon directories of these zips (its on an ftp, dont know if thats strictly necessary but still).

    Dont know who remembers panty inspector but he seemed to have access. he would post animated gifs with people eating poo and pee or extreme gore with a bad joke caption, possibly making fun of memes or maybe he really thought he was funny. play with fire and you will get burnt, and the other point is, there is no such thing as "unsee", try to remember that when clicking around on /b, and other "chans", some of that shit left me scarred for life. or when you explore the deepweb with thor, know that behind every corner lurks snuff, scat, cp and worse, much worse.

    take heed to the apostles warning.

    maybe harry can verify, [MENTION=48355]Harry3[/MENTION] how laden with snuff, scat, cp, etc in the most depraved combinations possible is the deepweb really?

    taking internet forums seriously enough for someone's post to become 'painful to watch' ... makes you look like a tool.
