They announced it's removal. There didn't seem to be an intent to bring it back. You can blame those who posted inappropriate material there for it's going.

I am also dissappointed in the behavior of some ruining it for the rest of the community.  However, if you would like to post or see community events, you can use The Home Events Calendar.

Because people blacklisted others...solicited cam shows for PSN cards...sought to meet children...etc, etc. and despite being brought up again and again and again and hearing from staff that it was monitored and cleaned up, it never was. This was easier than dealing with the problem I guess.

bad  people ruined it for good people.  thats not right.  people who asked for psn cards for cam showas and hat other stuff that was inappreipte should had been banned  for posting inapprotiate material things like that.  i met some people from home and we played games together. not everyone who plays games off ps3 goes on home. thats a way to meet other people that did both played games and go on home and these idoits who posted inapproaite bad stuff  ruin it for good people

Yes the board needed more moderation or an approval process before posts were made. Sadly Sony wasn't prepared to do that and it appears the removal of the board was the choice they picked.

I for one am glad, it's gone.

Now maybe my little fan, will stop blacklisting me any chance he gets.

Simple. The Board was used by certain individuals, who attempted to solicit minors for sexual activities.

 

Sony's overly long delay in correcting the situation, is in my opinion despicable, and criminal. Maybe Sony saved themselves mega $ and a few jail terms, by taking it down. Then again, maybe not. We shall see.

 

The law sees anyone under the age of 18, aa a minor.

I see them as kids. It is our job as adults to protect all children who use Home.

Obviously, you cannot leave it to Sony to do so. "Family Friendly" Home ? . . . what a joke.

 

Sony failed.
