The thing is Saafe was I think and as far as I am aware originally set up to give advice on certain topics to do with the job to new and maybe naïve prossies. As in safety tips, how to spot a timewaster, tips on the legalities, and was there to help those who did not know what to do safety wise to try and stop so many prossies from coming to harm and to work in a safe (as safe as one can be in this job) environment. The forum was added on and again for the same reason but it has now become in some threads a place to just whinge and moan, which should be kept to their own blogs, as these threads tend to take away from the seriousness of the site.
A couple of years ago it was more of a site where people asked questions and needed advice and was not a place to just moan about clients all the time. It was for good advice and also the dangerous punter thread which thankfully doesn't have too much crap in it as the timewasters have their own section now. I don't see the point of it as some report every timewaster they get and don't realise that section is for persistant time wasters not just a one off no show.
The idea of the forum is good but every forum is only as good as those that post on it and sometimes it does attract those who just want to constantly whinge about clients and how much they hate doing this or that, instead of just not doing it in the first place.
I don't agree that punters on there would help as its main intention is for advice for newer girls who don't have any way of finding out the aspects they need to know. Having men on there who may well give advice that could get a girl hurt or worse (not all men have the girls best interest at heart and some are just plain nasty and they are the ones that would rush to be members) or to learn all the safety tips given out (so they can by pass them) would not be the safest option.
I don't think it was set up to be a general chat forum and Amy does her best to keep idol chit chat off the forum to try and keep it as close to an advice forum as she can
