A Facebook page boasting of sordid sexual exploits, robberies and misadventures has painted Hawke’s Bay as a hotbed of morally questionable behaviour – and home to a good many people with poor spelling and grammar.
OMG Hawke’s Bay Confessions has attracted more than 3000 “likes” in the five days it has been running, as people anonymously reveal their infidelities, boast about where they’ve had sex, and even own up to robbing someone for revenge. …
Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule was appalled at the page.
“I just think it’s rubbish; it’s not worth the stuff it’s written on.”
Napier Mayor Barbara Arnott said it appeared to be a platform for “non-thinking low-lifes” to play out “perverted fantasies”.
She doubted the truthfulness in the posts but worried that the page had the potential to spiral out of control. “It’s anonymous at this stage but it has the potential to be hurtful to individuals.” …
Confession pages exist for other New Zealand towns and cities but pages viewed by The Dominion Post yesterday were not as active or as graphic in detail.
OMG (oh my god) Wellington Confessions has 29 likes and a policy of not posting any secrets about rape, violence or abuse.
Dunedin Confessions, with four likes, states “nothing too cruel will be put up”.
Oh Good God, get over it. For those interested the page is here.
The appalling grammar suggests that it is indeed HB locals using it. Some fine prose examples:
well when i was 15 i went to hawkes bay for my cousins 16th and i was still a virgin, i ended up hooking up with her cousin and cheated on my bf i had been with fr two years ooops and he always said to me that he would wait until i was ready, i guess he just wasnt there when i was ready
Actually that one may be false. Someone still a virgin at 15 in Hawkes’s Bay?
Was at a party once with couple of the boys. Walked into one of the rooms and caught my gfs brother getting sucked off haha. He then looks at me pulls down her pants and tells me to help him out. I thort fuck-it and jumped right in there! He haznt said a word to anyone! Best brother-inlaw in the world right? Haha
His sister may disagree!
Rather than try to close the page down, they should use it as scripts for a soap opera!
