It's certainly crypto-*something*
I was never treated unfairly by Vox or Quis, but over time some things came to my attention, very slowly, that made me wonder how such a site was fostering or advancing 'traditionalism'
I don't mean to play dirty, but the confusing marital situation made me worry traditional Catholicism was somehow being 'compartmentalized' by the site owners. That is, smells and bells and aves, but a confusing marital situation to say the least. They also adamantly refused to address it as 'none of anyone's business' which was squirelly to say the least.
It ended up melting down as anyone saw who was there, which I suppose was to be expected.
There were/are some kind, edifying people there, but also a lot of strange 'compartmentalized' trads, a love of the traditional aesthetics, but definitely an embrace of the modern world.
Caraffa said it better than I could, it was a thought process I hadn't been able to articulate aloud, but definitely felt the tug of internally.
I was especially concerned at the implicit and explicit feminism of the forum. It used to be quite a bit worse, and a gaggle of harpies 'followed' Vox around and shouted down anyone who dared point out the errors or feminism, or at least the inconsistencies with Catholicism.
It got less severe, either because of Vox's protracted non-participation whilst Quis seemed to run the forum (as far as I could tell) while he absolutely insisted it was 'her' site (he was, to be fair, quite consistent about that point, and that was honorable since she did indeed start the place) or perhaps the aforementioned harpies flagged in their own participation, or both.
Anyway, the crypto-feminism bothered me the most. Feminism is a proxy for Godless atheism, proudly defying the natural order, and has served to advance many evils of the last and present centuries, namely abortion, sɛҳuąƖ immorality and humanism.
That anyone would be so obtuse about this as to adhere to feminism in any form makes me question their formation, and worse yet that anyone would try to chimaerize it with Catholicism seems of a deformed faith or even diabolical.
I can't see how any labels or qualifiers attached to feminism can change its fundamental errors or how one could not see such.
