We have been made aware of the fact that Yesmap's (now disabled) Matrix server was entered under false pretenses by the hostile editor of a supposed "MAP" website some months ago. While some screenshots/logs have been shared (including those of members suffering from mental-health and legal problems), no personally identifying information has been leaked. We are currently compiling a dossier of malicious and criminal activity we believe the publishers of this website are responsible for, and will soon publish and promote it.

L. Alvin Malesky is the author of a much quoted paper[1] which alleged cognitive distortion in the BoyChat community.



It's hard to take Malesky's conclusion of distorted thinking among Boylovers seriously. If he believes that certain opinions indicate distorted thinking, and then "discovers" that such opinions are common among any community of individuals, this does not amount to proof of subjective beliefs. The "distortions" he treats as axiomatic to his study are not justified as such, and could potentially be nothing more than historical or cultural differences; differences he fails to establish as pathological before embarking on his study.

In light of this, the true quality and nature of Malesky's work is perhaps comparable to investigative journalism.
