FA removing active Ass-atars

Crossposting from FA... go check the original post. https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3311161/

Well, my butt has been wiped (no pun intended) from my avatar. The following is an administrative notice i got from one of the admins. As this is an administrative notice, I can share the note itself.

Administrative Notice
Sent By: byrhtnoth to x_panther On: March 28th, 2012 11:37

I regret to inform you that your avatar has been removed as it violates the avatar guidelines. Focusing on the butt of the character. Please read over these guidelines before uploading a new avatar, thank you.

"Avatars must be work safe. They may not contain blood/gore/fluids, rapidly flashing colors/images (i.e. "seizure mode"), outlines/indentations of genitalia or nipples, or be sexually suggestive in nature. General rule of thumb: avatars must adhere to the same guidelines as “general submissions”."

For those of you wondering what the 'Avatar Guideline' is:

Avatar Policy & Guidelines

Avatars must be work safe. They may not contain blood/gore/fluids, rapidly flashing colors/images (i.e. "seizure mode"), outlines/indentations of genitalia or nipples, or be sexually suggestive in nature. General rule of thumb: avatars must adhere to the same guidelines as “general submissions”.

Further, avatars using the work of another artist without their permission will be removed.

Avatar F. A. Q.
Q: What does "work safe" mean?
A: Work safe means it must be something that is appropriate for viewing while in the standard work place.

Q: Are bouncing boob icons and jiggling butts still allowed?
A: No, they are now prohibited as avatars due to their sexually suggestive nature.

Q: Are fetish avatars allowed?
A: Explicit sexual fetishes are prohibited as avatars.

So... as I have a vague understanding of what ass-atar isn't allowed (my strutting butt on twitter); understandable, totally my bad. But why was my static ass-atar removed ( https://www.furaffinity.net/view/5257844/ and the like)? With the above administrative notice, am I to believe that underwear models on underwear packages in department stores are not work safe? Please be more specific in your guidelines or at least tell me before I go uploading what I understand as a legitimate avatar back up.

Just another stupid thing that Dragoneer is doing to chase away his members. I see nothing wrong with showing one's cute buns as avatar.

FA is a police state anymore, Dragoneer has no concept on how to run a welcoming site or to keep his members happy.

Real soon I bet FA will try to be deviant art and even ban anything sexual or nudity unless its tasteful or whatever.  Also I can't even pronounce the admin's stupid name.  Burntnot?  Birthnot?

they keep changing the rules, they're going to end up losing every follower hey have, including the ones who can't seem to get the picture that FA is shit now.
