Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

Hello Quality standards means the community wants a level playing field. We're trying and listening. Unfortunately some are so insecure they have to hit pump every ordinary shot of theirs on social media to make the top 5. Guess they feel better. Not any more, we'll be putting an equitable stop to ...

Re: Post-screening gh6912
