As many of you are aware, I left FurAffinity a while ago due to, shall we say, ideological reasons.
And by 'ideological reasons', I mean that their staff is a bunch of petty, lazy, vindictive whiners, lorded over by a Barney-esque purple dinosaur more concerned with perception than reality. Sorry to sound bitter, but how many times do I have to have my art taken down for AUP violations which only exist in an admin's capricious, airy mind, and nowhere in their written rules, before I become a wee bit irritated? Especially after learning that FA keeps no backups! So if a bovine-skulled staff member deletes something of yours, both the submission and its comments are gone forever! And if it turns out they were in the wrong? OH WELL! Yeah, that's a real swell way to run a website. I ran from that place like fleeing an airtight Volkswagen filled with morbidly obese sauerkraut and egg-salad fanciers.
That's enough bile-venting, I think. Let's get to the meat of the matter.
This happened to me a few days ago. It speaks for itself. The contrast is monumental. To say that my reaction was one of disbelieving wonderment, as if waking one misty morn to discover a unicorn frolicking in my backyard, would be an understatement.
