Why is there as much cub porn on FA as there is on Inkbunny?

by
As an insatiably curious focks, i wanted to see how thorough FA had been in cleaning up cubby prons, as per their AUP.

I simply searched for the tag 'cub' with mature and adult filters enabled and general disabled.

Imagine my surprise to see over Twenty Three THOUSAND 'documents' or submissions still available for my viewing pleasure.


I refreshed through a good few pages worth to see what FA had. It was all there.

Nudity.

Sex.

Scat.

Snuff.

Rape.

And everything in between.


Granted, about half the images were not contradictions of the AUP , either through mistagging , dead links , removed images, adult diaper furs or whatever.

In my estimates this still leaves approximately Ten thousand images that are Grade A cub porn.

A quick search of 'cub' on inkbunny with the same filter showed me about three hundred and thirty pages worth of porn with thirty submissions per page. Ten thousand images.


Granted , these numbers are by no means exact, but they are close enough for me.

I could rant on and bitch about how FA's AUP isn't enforced properly , lazy Admins.... how the initial cub banning was a simple knee jerk reaction and was never properly regulated... blah blah, but why bother?

A simple search and elementary math reveals the truth.

For shame , FA. For shame. :3

I heard the AUP only applies to new uploads, anything that's already been there for years is granted an exception unless someone reports it.

At least when it was first announced, we were assured that there would not be any sort of "grandfathering", and that the content in question would have to go for the reason of trying to retain/get a new third party donation service. We were granted a twenty day grace period, but after that, they said they would begin purging galleries on their own, to no disciplinary action placed upon the users. It began as a very courteous thing, but soon their reasoning for the ban fell through, and the matter was swept beneath the rug; ejecting and forgetting about a chunk of their user base they had utilized as a scapegoat.

So Alertpay isn't even squeezing FurAffinity about its content anymore? Gyp.
ProfessorBob

Well, the ban came as the result of Alertpay dropping them. Cub smut was blamed, and the community was promised that they could get a different third party service if we made this sacrifice. But, that's where things took their turn.

Months went by, and then the one-year anniversary. FA still doesn't have a third party donation service, which goes to show that the fandom itself is what these companies bailed from, and not one small group's artwork. Looking from the outside inward, a non-fur would find all of our artwork to be disturbing; it doesn't need any additional fetishes or context to make it seem unappealing. On top of being named the scapegoat for the loss of Alertpay, now that FA is taking their own donations and was unable to get a third party service, there is actually no reason for them to continue with the cub ban; so long as their original explaination was truthful. They have no third party to appease, and nobody accepted to be FA's service after this long.

Long story short:
FA banned one specific type of artwork (and thusly their artists) in a knee-jerk reaction to losing a third party service. When the benefits and reasoning behind the ban didn't come to fruition, they didn't change their tune, and stopped being courteous on top of it; leaving one part of the community to be their scapegoat in a move I can only describe as "political". They have no donation service, and no reason to have the ban in place, but from the very beginning seemed to find it prudent to place blame to a specific group.

Additional addendum, for clarity!

Here's FA's current donation page. They can only accept money-orders, which results in little to no donations when compared to an internet based service. They have fine reason for wanting a third party service, but as it came to be, no third party service wanted to touch them. Inkbunny and SoFurry handled this well, but they also didn't alienate and offend their users.  :P

Thanks for educating me. I was under the impression that AP had frozen FA's accounts under the stipulation that the money would be released and normal service would return with the removal of underage characters. Now that I know AP isn't even in the picture anymore, I think it's more of a case of 'Neer just being a bitch. Or, more likely, Sciggles whispering in his ear.

Yep.  I was under the same impression as you for quite some time. >.<

Then that's a lazy, double standard on the admin's part.  You can't say XXX cub porn is all fine and happy cakes cuz it's been on the site a few years  but YYY cub porn is teh evils cuz it was uploaded 20 minutes ago.   One or the other.  Either it's fine or it's not.

Yeah, FA is a bit... weird.
You feeling better from your previous journal, by the way?
Kaon

Fa is failing hard on this issue, that's what FA is doing.  As to 'feeling better'  that journal was the first step towards that goal.  :3

My opinion its mostly because 'neer doesnt do anything on FA anymore besides ban people who are trying to draw attention to scammer/art thief accounts, even though there is proof the scammer has been permabanned SIX other times on FA.  But because the scammer is friends with sciggles, the person reporting the scam gets banned for harassment.  FA is drowning in admin fail.
Kaon

I'm not letting this go.  I deleted the counterpart to this journal on FA as the admins started harassing and bullying a friend of mine Who kindly linked to my page on his journal , yet refused to face me down on the issue, simply choosing to ignore me.

  Fine.

 I don't care if they decide to banhammer me cuz they are too lazy or too cowardly to face this issue, but they screw with my friend to get to me??  Fuck them.  Gutless cowards. They've crossed a line they didn't want to cross.

  One way or another , FA will learn I am NOT the focks with whom to fuck!

>.< fa's no cub porn rule is stupid. especially if they wont infore it fully. i say either take it all down , or none at all. and ooooooh ive seen adult furs post stuff against aup but it stays up. but if a babyfur post smething that could even slightly be taken as cub porn and they will hund u down till its removed. for example my mate is an adut. im a cub. i had a pic of him innocently kissing my muzzle and i had it removed >.< fa admins r ticking me off.
