Another year has passed and this year we have seen and done some wonderful things; here are a few highlights. Feel free to add to this thread with some of your favorite moments from 2012!


  • On February 23, 2012, we set a new record for the number of users online:

    Most users ever online was 846 on Thu Feb 23, 2012 3:09 pm


  • On April 1, the fun-loving mod team conducted an elaborate April Fool's prank, The Mod Meet thread, which successfully duped plenty of members!!! Twisted Evil

    April Fool's day also introduced us to a wonderful new Eater member, colbit.

  • A bit after that, another April Fool, Friday3, returned to Eater and we welcomed him back to the mod room!

  • Also in April, the Fourth Annual Eater Egg Hunt was won by Scentless Apprentice.

  • On April 26th we won the judgment on the lawsuit, announced in Scambaiting help by Rover. Link

  • In June, ScamWarners went mobile! http://m.scamwarners.com

  • August brought us the return to modship of our prancing pink pony master, Mr. Razor. pony

  • This year over 7000 new members have done some great work. Well, some just spammed the forum, but a few of those folk made a lot of lads cry!

  • All year, Shorty, the world's dumbest lad, got raked over the coals.


  • BobJohnson broke into the 30s with his tattooed lad collection.


  • T money spent a lot of money on a holiday.


  • Next Victim has taken on the love lads with a vengeance, conversing with lads in ways that make others feel the need to shower.

  • Lads arrested, with input from folks we know!

    Romance scammer sentenced in the UK

  • The fake site killers, some senior and some new, continue to wreak havoc on the lads. 121 pages of threads have been added to the offline fake sites forum since January 1, 2012. There are occasionally threads for sites that were determined legit but many threads also have more than one fake domain reported on them. With 30 threads to an index page that is well over 3600 fake sites researched, reported and killed in our fake sites forum at Eater. Incidentally, this is the exact same number of pages as 2011, and double the number for 2010 - way to keep pace, site killers!
