Yes, it is true, I have been violated on SZS. I believe to help others protect themselves I should tell my story.
I was looking at some member pages today and I opened a member's page and the same background song that is on my page started to play. It is not a common song. I then looked at the member's playlist and My God...it is an exact copy of mine.
