incelsupport.org (2006-2008) was Cernan's incel forum: a gender-inclusive and relaxing place that came after the incelsite.com owner shut down the incelsite.com bulletin board during early 2006.

After a severe family house fire, Cernan left incelsupport.org, resulting in a partial leadership vacuum. During the vacuum, a successful coup was completed by an autistic male and a female who were bothered by emerging debates about whether inceldom was a genetic disorder. They took the stance that inceldom was not primarily genetic.

Philosophy[edit]

Bella Freeman described the forum as advocating for self-improvement, and to an extreme (in her mind dangerous) degree. Those who advocated against self-improvement were deemed 'negative'.

History[edit]

One of the female admins, Bella Freeman, began suggesting to three other members: "Wild Man", "Lonely Cyclops", and "Volkulja", that inceldom may be primarily genetic.

She suggested that, therefore, long-term incels should try, 'grief management', and accept inceldom, rather than try to self-improve to get a date. The three members she relayed this to all saw their inceldom as a temporary affair brought about by mental illness. Wild Man and Lonely Cyclops both had autism. Volkulja, a female, had a long list of mental diagnoses. They were offended by Bella's talk of inceldom being primarily genetic and unchangeable for long-term sufferers.[1]

At one point, this argument came to a boil, and Bella shut down the forum because she couldn't contain the argument by herself and was waiting for other admins to intervene. Volkulja and Wild Man then staged a successful coup on the adminship team.[2] It perhaps helped them that the main admin, Cernan, was MIA.

After incelsupport.org shut down, Bella created her own short-lived forum called Involuntary Celibacy Acceptance and Management, while those opposed to her moved to incel.myonlineplace.org.

Admins[edit]

Someone who calls himself "Jim Ferer" claims to be a former administrator of the site.[3] He stated that he thought most incels both were unininterested in solving their situation, and that most chronically lonely people will stay so.

Admin style[edit]

They claimed to have not made an effort to recruit members, and members came to them instead.[6]

Because IncelSupport was feminist and wouldn't allow for misogyny, they would strictly moderate and consistently ban members who promoted it. One of the MOST notable things IncelSupport did was create “The Deadly Sins of Involuntary Celibacy”. In retrospect, the unintended consequence of this was that banning misogynistic posters helped rid it from IncelSupport but it didn't actually fix the misogyny from these posters. Many of these banned members would migrate to love-shy.com, which was a rival community.

Death[edit]

It ended with 55,322 posts and 2,206 threads, and 5963 members[7] after which it redirected to incel.myonlineplace.org/forum.

In March 2008, Incelsupport.org redirected to incel.myonlineplace.org/forum.

Life after death[edit]

Despite being offline for almost a decade, the domain has been renewed yearly by a business under the name, "Involuntary Celibacy Support", registered in British Columbia, Canada.

This suggests the owner may have misgivings over completely abandoning his project. Or he may simply want to keep the domain around for nostalgic purposes.

The renewal of the domain seems unusual as Cernan has not been seen in incel spaces for a very long time, but many hope he comes back.
