Nudists will always be a scorned minority because they/we are simply incapable of working together towards a common goal: mainstream and social acceptance of the naked human body.
Whenever any half-decent catalyst comes together, like SkinBook as was (and demolished by insider-backbiting and sniping), or a slick modern social media network like the Naktiv site, people run along excitedly saying how marvelous it is to finally have a "place to call home". After a while though, people begin to jostle for influence, minor issues become personalized, and people fall out with one another, then they go off in a huff and refuse to say a nice word about the site again. More than that, a whispering campaign of mud-slinging is begun.
All this serves is to splinter the already factioned groups even further. Take a recent example. Some idiot posted a verbatim article from another website on the Naktiv site. The author of the original article was understandably upset, but rather than contact the Naktiv site admins and lodge a complaint, so that something could be done about it, the response was instead to post a blog denouncing the ENTIRE Naktiv siteas plagiarist. Note that this was one user, from over 1600 users, who had plagiarized a post, and now the entire site is black-balled. This doesn't happen on Facebook.
What's the difference? The difference is that Facebook is an entity, and the Naktiv site is still small enough to be regarded as a personal place. This makes the Naktiv site an easy target for an unanswerable smear campaign. As the saying goes: "throw enough mud and it will stick", and stick it does, regardless of the true nature of the situation. And the more mud, the better, the more scandal, the better, the more you can get people to become embroiled in sniping at one another, the less notice is taken of the main issue. It's no wonder Skinbook folded with an embittered founder. This so sad, so futile, such a waste of resources, and so unnecessary.
We were talking about gaining mainstream public acceptance of nudity. Not the plagiaristic antics of a single user on a multi-user site. This isn't a parish council meeting, where people are trying to upmanship one another for use of a particular chair. This isn't a private nudist club with parish council note-taking and representatives with special case voting rights for the correct queue position at the barbeque. We are talking about a social media network which can help to promote our common goal: mainstream public acceptance of human nudity. Remember?
United we stand, divided we fall. Where do you want to go with this, what do you want to do?
