Frustrated With Discord.


I'm posting in the Spiritual Section because I don't think most Non Christians would have an issue with this. But since I am a believer in Jesus and the Bible, I do have a problem with this.

Because I'm lonely, I've been testing out Discord. That means I had to do a lot of searching for the "perfect" servers for me. I've been playing around with Discord for several weeks. I'm not happy with what I'm finding on Discord. Most of the servers I find, are either for teenagers. Or there are servers for adults, but those also have porn on them. If I go for Christian servers, they seem to have the same issue that the rest of the Discord has: Inactivity! The place just doesn't seem to be very active. It appears to me that people are constantly starting new servers that never really take off. I'm not saying that I had no laughs. I managed to find two severs that I was able to talk on. They were "eh ok". One was a linux server, and the other was a conversation server. Now I'm thinking about deleting my discord account. If any of you know of a server that I should try before I leave. Please tell me about it! I need something that I can get excited about. I need somewhere I can feel like I belong. I know that if I made my own server, It would be for 18+ but no porn or nudity would be allowed. I know that doesn't make much sense to those who are not believers. But I'm 41 years old, and I shouldn't be talking to anyone below 18 years of age. I don't even like talking to people at 18, 19, or very early 20's. It's just not a good mix for me.

I haven't been in a ton of Discord servers but most of the ones I've been in have been for discussing sexuality related topics and even there they usually had a nsfw channel for posting nudity or graphic pornographic stuff when it came up conversationally so maybe you could ask them to create a nsfw channel but ime they usually have one anyway. Then you can just ignore that channel.

Servers do tend to die eventually anywhere from several months to a few years after being created. Sometimes people move to new servers later.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

I can't ignore the nsfw channels for emotional reasons. Porn is addictive. It is best for me not be anywhere close to nsfw channels.

You could ask the mods to ban you from the channel. I believe that's possible because I was in a server with a channel that one person couldn't access.

Sometimes when talk about my problem with porn, I get made fun of.

A lot of people are tired of being lectured to about porn which makes them kind of aggressive towards people who are anti-porn. I guess you'll just have to find a more mature server somehow where people will be willing to block you from that part (and it'd probably be better to not give any explanation for why you want to be blocked just ask and leave it at that,) or alternatively just hang out with people who share your beliefs in real life at a Christian hangout or something.

I feel like there are servers for people who don't want to see porn too though, like specific anti-porn servers you could join.

They shouldn't take it out on me.

On a lot of Discord servers I've used you have to opt into the NSFW (Not Safe for Work) channels where you will find the adult material. I've used quite a few Discord servers and I really don't see a lot of that kind of stuff so perhaps you are just not on good servers? Keep looking for servers and maybe a better one will come up. The servers I use are really only for autistic people so there's not really one I can invite you to unless you happen to have an autism diagnosis like me.

There is one server I kinda like. You guys might want to check it out. It's called: Meaningful Conversation. I met a woman in there who told me that it helped her social anxiety get better.

I met a guy in a server dedicated to Tall Amazon Women. We got to talking and found out that He feels the same way about Discord. We don't like porn but we are attracted to tall women. The server is fairly clean. I only saw one nude picture and it wasn't a real nude picture. It was a computer generated cartoon. I will most likely be leaving that sever soon. One they are not active anymore. Two I found that picture. Three being there gives me mixed feelings. If only I could meet some real tall women, and have a conversation, that would make it worth it. So far the only one I met told me I would need to pay to talk to her.

On this line, I'm talking about all the severs I'm a member to: I might still leave Discord. I'm just not rushing it. My next problem is the people that meet. Sometimes the conversations work, and sometimes they don't. Funny how those who joined my friends list, don't seem to enjoy talking to me anymore then just once. Last night I felt neglected.
