I would like to reach through the internet and smack the people who thought "Nikes" and a picture an airplane were appropriate responses to a secret about not being able to leave an abusive relationship. (I'm also appalled Frank posted them.)

Does anybody understand this one? On the back, there's a picture of a wall, in the upper left-hand corner it says "I'M NOT THE 99%" and the lower right-hand one "And it makes me feel guilty as shit".

I just assumed that the writer was a trust fund baby. They're in the top 1% of the country economically, but they didn't work for the amount of money they have. We are the 99% is a slogan of Occupy Wall Street and other occupation movements. If you're not from the US, you might not be familiar with it, but it's been all over the news for months.

For the first one? Probably cause her boyfriend looks like he read it and is into it. I'm twelve so I laughed at that one.

As for the second probably the same horrified reaction that caused you to show it to us? I hope at least.

The first one made me laugh and laugh. The second one was just... good for you, lady, but some secrets are a-okay staying secrets.

Putli Bai, I had the same reaction as you because I thought the guy/lady left the kids behind in a shitty home. But when I clicked your link, I saw that the title of the image file is "and we are never ever coming back." So it sounds like he/she took the kids too.

What everyone else said, but in addition the lady missed an opportunity to write a VERY dirty gross limerick, and that I cannot forgive.

That awkward boyfriend picture sort of reminds me of Jason Segal as either Marshall in HIMYM or the main guy in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, both of which are hilarious, so all I can do is LAUGH AND LAUGH AND LAUGH.

Also, I too have been the recipient of unwanted dirty texts, and DANG, I wish I had had such a great response. Because ignoring it only means you'll get more pictures of some dude's dick.

Interesting. I read that as some guy who decided he didn't want to be a dad, but you're right, there's more going on than meets the eye. And really, the submitter could be either gender. Now I feel guilty for conclusion-jumping.

So, only two months later, the app is closed because of all the pornographic/disturbing posts. I never saw any, but my daughter did, and she said they were horrifying. According to Frank's statement, he's received death threats against himself and his family.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

So am I. I deleted the app after a few days because of all the crap that was on it. Not just the pornographic post but the boring and uncreative ones as well.

I still think he would have had better success if the app was an electronic version of the books and other unseen secrets.

Another who's surprised it took so long. There was some disturbing shit on that app.

My main question is, what is going to happen with the money people paid for the app? It might only be $2.99 (or whatever people paid for it) but I did pay for that app and I am NOT happy that it's just being taken off. He would have made a lot of money from that and refunds need to be given.

I think I read that the money was going to a suicide prevention charity.

That's what I thought, but I've been convincingly told he is not.

I'm really touched by this one, too, or the responses it got.

Gee, I can't think why he wouldn't want to be friends with you, you bigot.

Thank you so very much for the nightmares!

That one made me so mad! Yeah, big shocker that he might not want to keep being friends with someone who doesn't believe he should be treated as an equal human. How could someone love their friend enough to fear losing them, but not enough to want that friend to have full and equal rights?
