Recently I visited efour.proboards.com. I was immediately disgusted with what I saw. It was nothing but a bunch of grown men over the age of 25 attempting to have contact with younger people. I feel as though the older members of the forum, known as “professors”, were using the lure of rare pokemon cards in order to initiate conversations with younger people and build relationships with them. One member was a self proclaimed “king” of pokemon.. They seemed to boast large sums of cash and a massive collection of charizards. A more notable member has their own youtube channel in which they rackateer prices and interact with the younger crowd on a regular basis. The forum even has a link to a discord where they frequently debate “age gate” and similar topics.
In my opinion the forum is nothing more than grown men playing a children’s card game. Would you want your kids around grown men pretending to be cool, wealthy, and offering? I would assume not.
There is an active police investigation involving smpratte (Scott Pratte) and his online activity. Anyone with similar experiences or information should contact their local police and the Florissant, MO police department.
