We personally thought BoredatVassar was trash and not worth our time. This is newsworthy though...
Boredatvassar.net has been taken offline by the Boredat monitors. The page now redirects to this message:
A few bad eggs
Dear Friends at Vassar,
The administration has insisted that we take down boredatvassar.net because of slander and gossip coming from a few bad eggs in your community. This is pretty frustrating considering that postings have been significantly less malicious within the past week. We’ve been working around the clock answering emails, moderating flagged posts, and built new tools to help the community moderate itself (which is ideal). Now, if enough people click “trash” on a post, its removed immediately.
Mads has been reading the Boredat pages for other schools long before Vassar developed its own page a few weeks ago. The posters at these other schools use the site to connect with peers. We were one of the only schools to use it to write malicious and hurtful comments about others.
The site was addressed at Sunday night's VSA Council Meeting, sources tell Mads. Cappy also addressed the site in her convocation speech yesterday. A rep for CIS claims that it is possible to track the authors of inappropriate comments, as one must be on the Vassar network to post on the site.
If the site does come back up, we hope people will no longer abuse their anonymity.
