  • Creepy PMs FAQ
  • What is Creepy PMs?
  • CreepyPMs is a subreddit for posting creepy, inappropriate, bizarre, awkward, or offensive PMs. Consider everything here to be adult material, and possibly triggering.
  • CreepyPMs is also a support sub, a safe space for people who have been creeped on. That means comments that are not conducive to a supportive and positive environment may be removed, even if they don't violate the rules.
  • What kind of community is /r/creepyPMs?
  • We are feminist and women-friendly. You don't have to identify as such, but you must be respectful of the environment. Low-substance humor and stale hivemind circlejerks are not welcome.
  • Is it OK to share personal anecdotes and stories?
  • Yes, especially if they are relevant to the post. However, our rules still apply. If your story defends or supports the creep, derails the discussion, or isn't empathetic towards the recipient of the messages, it will be removed. Questions regarding whether or not you come off as creepy should be directed to /r/relationships.
