since "Trending Topics" began, i have had close-up photos of women's large breasts and large butts pushed on me; some photos accompanying these "topics" verge on pornographic. as i pointed out in an email to you, and as you know very well, a substantial portion of your membership is comprised of teenage girls. this is hardly appropriate.

yesterday, i went to the 4a board to obtain the information about the young member who died so i could send a donation to her family.

if i thought the topics presented on the non-hair board were bad, i was wrong - you see, when the cookies think you might be of another ethnicity, the topics change. this is an example of what i got this morning:

Is Your Booty Call BF Material?
The Game Breaks His Ankles
Nicki Minaj Talks on Drake and Chris Brown Fight
Is Khloe Kardashian OJ Simpson's Love Child
Lala and Melo Celebrate 2nd Anniversary; Mistress Not Invited
Welcome to Heaven (aka Texas Shredder 2012)
What Was Adrienne Bailon Thinking With This Swimsuit?
What Sean Paul Said About Affair With Beyonce?

Gretchen, Michelle, Alicia - how is ANY of this relevant, educational, supportive or empowering to your membership?

I IMPLORE YOU again, PLEASE PLEASE STOP THIS. IT'S HARMING and not HELPING--as I thought this site was supposed to be.

ALSO,, quit trying to be something you are not. We come here for hair topics, and other non-hair topics that are of interest to us. The information shared in threads is plenty enough, we don't need help finding "trending topics" or with the "gurus" . We have that IN THE THREADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If we wanted to read gossip or other articles that have no relation to anything on this board, we get those from somewhere else. The purpose of is not what you are trying to head towards, and if you do, you will suddenly find yourselves out of patrons. REAL TALK (keeping it all the way 100%)
