Post RIP Swapnote
Tried to send one and was notified spot pass sending has been disabled. Saw a news article on another site confirming it being shut down. The cause? Too many people sending inappropriate messages including pictures/drawings.

If Miiverse comes soon, I won't mind. Sucks to see it go, and for such a reason, but I really hadn't checked it in quite a while.

Kind of silly thing to do here in 2013 an age in which free expression has been coming out to be a big movement among young peoples. Regardless, they could have implemented some parental control measures or something.

Do they have any sort of private messaging app or anything?

That was the private messaging app...

Anyway, Miiverse has PM built in, so it'll all be good as soon as it launches on 3DS soon.

For the reasons Nintendo did this, I would have thought that simply disabling pictures would be the best course of action. Removing it altogether is overkill by far.

I really liked Swapnote...

Oh well, maybe it'll encourage them to make something... better. At the very least, more efficient for sending messages to friends without having to wait a few days or even hours.
