It was great when Inkbunny started getting a variety of artists to water down the saturation of cub artists, but now that Alert Pay has stopped supporting sites that have cub porn(FA and IB), and Inkbunny choosing to continue to allow cub porn, the cubs are migrating. It'll take a long time before IB has a good ratio of non-cub art again, if they even had a "good" ratio at any time before. I define "good" in this instance as "a low enough ratio to not be considered a cub porn site first and foremost".
My stance on the Alert Pay thing: FA made the right decision, if they can't find any alternative revenue streams. I'm surprised IB is actually optimistic about staying afloat AND allowing cubby porn. If you can't accept money, you can't pay for the servers. I look forward to seeing if IB succeeds in getting a merchant account. FA tried to get one, after all, and they're obviously bigger. Still, with all the small businesses that accept credit cards, I wouldn't expect it to be as difficult as FA is saying it is. It's probably a matter of how much actual income is coming from the site. Last I knew(old data), the admins of FA don't get any income from the site, while the IB admins are selling prints here. IB seems more like a business and FA seems more like a non-profit(without the gov't status).
