That does exist, but it's the worst of both worlds. Barely-functional and utterly infuriating.

perfect example of shillery on gamefaqs:
https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/91 ... 079?page=1

Half the posts are obvious lies from shills for companies that lose money because of keysellers.

Ive purchased at least 10 to 15 games there and hardly ever had an issue, when there was an issue it was resolved quickly and very satisfactory. Either money back or a new key within a few days max.
edit: and that is without that g2a shield thingy

I was a member of Kiwi Farms before Null's takeover, when it was still called the CWCki Forums. It was a lot more chill and nowhere near as toxic as Kiwi Farms ended up becoming, since it was focused on Chris-chan and other prominent lolcows and harassment of them wasn't condoned. People there really just wanted to obsessively document and discuss Chris, not harass him.

Internal drama led to the forum being taken down twice in short succession by TOS violations, so I guess the admins decided it wasn't worth the trouble and handed the reigns to Null after he offered to host it. The rest is history.

I won't ever get how multiple people could look at Null and say to themselves: Yup, that's a guy I will trust with my website.

Null tried to blackmail me for nudes shortly after his takeover. You'd think that would give people pause about trusting him with any private information, but I guess most were too stupid and sycophantic to give a shit. I'd be madder about it, but from what I read on /cow/ it seems I got the last laugh.

I don't think it was about that so much as it was exerting power over another human being that motivated him. I don't want to get too autistic about psychoanalyzing the guy because I don't really know him, but I got the impression that he has very little autonomy in "real life" and running a forum dedicated to harassing retards on the internet is his way of compensating for that.

That's textbook forum admin/moderator behavior and reasoning.
