Top 7 ‘strange’ online communities and websites

The internet is stranger than fiction. Online communities range from the peculiar to strange and even downright weird. In no particular order, I have compiled a list of my top strangest online communities and websites. Prepare to get shocked, perplexed and screaming  what the…? From sites that encourage you to get overweight, high and bloody, you will learn that the internet can sometimes be a strange and quite frankly, scary place.

 

Online communities that will leave you shocked and amazed

1.Get fat or die trying 

So basically ignore what the doctor said about your high cholesterol and sugar levels and put on as much weight as you like! At least that’s according to the community on  fantasy feeder – A website that encourages people to get obese and find love with people who are obsessed with the idea of being fat – known as fat feeders.

3. Skin deep

Prepare to get irked,pricked and inked with number 3 – bigtatooplanet.com  and where  a community of  tattoo  enthusiasts and tattoo artists turn inking into a sub-culture. This sub-culture sure takes a skin-deep approach to the term ‘community’.

5.The hunger games

Known as the ‘Ana’ community, which is short for anorexia. These communities give the ‘skinny’ on the eating disorder arnoxeia Nervosa – but not in the way you think. This is a community  of anorexia and bulimia sufferers who encourage one another to keep starving themselves. ‘Encouraging’ messages on how to remain underweight and skinny known as thinspirations .

6. World Wide Web high

LOL, yes,I am thinking what you are thinking -It’s crazy but it exists. Gawker.com has been sending people to ‘gethigh-ville.com since it began. Pople can order and get contacts their drug of choice whether legal or illegal. The fact that this website still exists is evidence that we live in a society that is as strange as its internet users.

7.Online blessings!

Yes! I had to. Blesserhub.com – one of many ‘blesser’ sites. These are communities looking love and the finer things in life. Sparking controversy all over the web and on mainstream media, this community has received its fair share of criticism and surprisingly, support.
