Finally banned from FA
« on: August 03, 2017, 02:32:48 AM »
I figured it was coming, but I didn't imagine it would be in quite this manner, or with such little evidence given by the mods. Here's the message I got;

That's right; "I have". I can't wait to hear their retarded explanation for why I somehow disparaged 'individuals suffering from disabilities'. I'm not holding my breath, though - I fully expect them to drag their feet.

What the literal...

You have...What?  Feet?  You have...ears?  WTF FA, are you suffering from ADD as well as terminal stupidity?  Did a Trans Squirrel walk past your window as you were typing, suddenly causing you to give into your desires involving cross dressing woodland critters?

Update: That's all they're willing to say. They will not specify any sort of specific actions and how that somehow 'disparages disabled people';


Cuck Mod:
The suspension message has been corrected to reflect that you have been permanently banned and the reason why this has occurred.

Your appeal has been reviewed and it was determined that you are no longer permitted to use Fur Affinity's services.




Me: And I would like to see the evidence that I have 'disparaged individuals suffering from disabilities' outside of a fictional context - indeed, multiple times. That is, I would like to see the instances of what I have said, and how this disparages 'individuals suffering from disabilities'.



Cuck Mod: Since the matter is closed, I will not be responding further to inquiries about this account.

How would they stop you from creating another account under an entirely different e-mail and IP address?

I could restart the modem, but I'd like to make sure that'd work.

Naw - FA looks like it's gonna be on its deathbed soon anyway, considering the new rules it's passed - not to mention Fagoneer's own personal issues.

One of my big problems with this, and the new CoC for FA is that leftists have a BAD habit of labeling anyone who disagrees with them as Nazi's.  When you start doing that, you're gonna find you're banning a good number of your users simply because they dared to disagree.  On this board, I may disagree with someone, and while there are certain people I would NEVER allow on this board (if I knew it was them), I would not ban someone for simply disagreeing with me.

This is one of those things about free speech that I believe firmly in.  That said, there are certain things that I will NOT permit to be said on this board.  For example, I will not give 9-11 truthers a platform here, nor will I give one to the KKK or other groups.  Anyone spouting BLM bullshit will be asked to stop or go somewhere else.  While one has the right to free speech, I am under NO obligations to provide a platform for speech I find to be offensive and reprehensible. There are other platforms out there for them to use.  I will not, however ban them for having a differing view from my own.

What will cause me to ban someone is a very clear violation of the community standards that Raven and I have established on our site.  We generally will give people warnings when that happens (again, we're under no obligation to do so, but human decency dictates that we give a person a warning) and the opportunity to correct their behaviour before we drop the hammer.  Some things will get someone instantly banned (Spamming, posting lewd comments or pornographic images, advocating criminal behaviour etc.) those cases would be extreme and would require immediate and decisive actions.

FA seems to have a very vague set of community rules and their enforcement of said rules seems to be capricious at best.  I believe that they established those terms of use to be deliberately vague so as to give the widest possible leeway to enforce their worldview while pretending to be a place for open and honest debate.  I've been a member of sites like that in the past and I won't post much on those sites (zChannel comes to mind).  As a result, I rarely comment on FA, and when I do, it's specifically to comment on the work of one or two artists and generally in response to a couple of friends on there. 

One of the rules I have established for my mods and admins is this: "If in doubt, ask another mod or admin.  If you take action, notify myself and Raven immediately."  In the past, our staff have had our phone number, emails and IM account names so as to be able to contact us at any time should something require our attention.  Yes, the 0400 call was a pain in the ass, but it was better than an admin not acting, or acting rashly and having a group of people mad.  I dislike surprises.

Anyway, reason I rarely post on FA is because of the way they're (mis)managed.  I don't feel safe posting in the public areas because I know that my views are likely to be reviled by the owners of the site and will likely cause greater scrutiny to my few posts should they become aware of those views.  The people who run that site are as rabid leftists as Antifa and quite possibly, they don the black masks and go out with them.  It really wouldn't surprise me.

They outright refuse to take any action against Antifa, too, despite Antifa being a terrorist group and violating the new rule precisely. Same goes for commies, especially those sporting the hammer and sickle or the red star.
