    As for AlertPay keeping any funds, it's in their terms of service and is legal as you agreed to forfit it in the event you violate the agreement, it's called a contract and is legally binding, it is sad FA lost in money if such was the case I agree.
    AlertPay, and several other groups, basically told us that whether they felt it was legal or not... the amount of money we'd generate for them in a year wouldn't amount to the legal fees that they'd incur a day if it ever went to court, and because of that, we weren't worth the risk of protecting.

    But could you be more specific in your definition of "aged up" for people who draw fanart to make things perfectly clear so that mods/support admins don't go deleting things and handing out bans over allowable content?
    If I were to guess, "aged up" basically means older. Or something like that.

    You should just lock this thread right now.
    There's only two kinds of opinions; there's my opinion, and then there's the wrong opinion.

    So happy to hear these turn of events.
    Though, I can see allot of cub porn artists just using the “chibi likeness” as a loophole to continue to post their fetish under a different name.

    Thank god, no more cub porn!
    I am happy with the change.
    I'm sorry but something about adultXcub porn just makes me * twitches * uneasy.

    I'm unsure if this has been asked, can't read through all the comments, but what about cub ferals? Anthro is understandable, pretty much related to child porn but feral it's nothing BUT animal instinct.

    Also, been awhile since I've been on the site, but does anyone know who Hentai Fondry runs through? If it's different from Alertpay and doesn't mind cub porn you can try that....maybe *shrug*

    I never said anything about a popularity contest. I'm trying to say that we should not be giving our enemies ammo to use against us or doing stuff to make people hate us unecessarily. People hate anything resembling pedophilia, so that has to go for the sake of the fandom.

    We've gone from "FA are Nazis for banning cub porn" to "Canada are fascists for making FA ban cub porn".

    Are you even reading what you are writing? Why did this line of thought seem like a good idea?

    I'd like to see it quantified in the AUP exactly what that means, because as it is currently worded, the mods/support admins can really abuse the rulings.

    I agree, I despise cub porn but I will not confuse it with cub art, folks, try to not get confused with cub art as cub porn, cub art is a broader term and can simply mean there is a cub depicted playing with another cub fully clothed in a sand box for instance, cub porn is just that, cub porn..

    Same here. One of the artists I watch had a journal on this, but after kinda speaking to him, his problem had more to do with his fans seeing as how most of them only watched him for his cub porn.

    Dragoneer, as a neutral individual to this incident I ask the question on the minds of most of the Lulz board, if this isn't the first time cub art has been questioned then why is it that the sudden lack of money to be made makes the ban appear? Is it purely coincidental that you and the rest of the staff suddenly snaps to it when a source of income drops due to a "specific" type of porn? What is going to be banned next? How do you think this action will make users of FA feel and do you believe that this action could possibly push some of the more popular artists that enjoy cub art to leave FA all together and move to other art sites? Is it true that Ink-Bunny is not only making money while keeping cub art but is also using AlertPay just fine? How much is to be made from AlertPay from this sudden drop and how do you plan on explaining it in a more proper manner to artists that might side with some of the more extreme viewpoints of you only making this move to line your pocket?

    Serious questions here, not trying to start any trouble, just looking for honest answers.

    I believe 'Neer and the staff at FA made the right decision. But to everyone that is spewing the "Thank God", "About time" and "HALLELUJAH" crap need to stop. Whether or not that's your actual standpoint, it's in poor taste.

    Because it is. Corporations control free speech. Like it or not, they do. They control the money, and therefore they control access to the means that are needed to say what you want to say.

    From what I've been reading. this change was crippling regardless. According to what you said, Dragoneer. AlertPay may not even approve to an appeal, forcing the admins to look for another source. and it seems a LOT of them are rejecting them due to the content. I hate to say it but I think this could be the end of FA. If not then I have no clue how we gonna get out of this.

    Hm, question: Even not being a mod, would some people like me to make a quote list of people who didn't read the OP, and are just having knee-jerk responses? Because in the last two page alone, I've seen people calling Canada a fascist nation, saying that 'Neer is only doing this because he finds it disgusting, talking about how all porn is going to be banned for the same reason the cub porn (not cub art, cub porn) is going to be banned...

    I think it'd be a fun bit of community service. Maybe put a contest spin on it: He who finds the most unique "Did not read OP" posts by 00:00PST wins a custom user title. "Official FAF Brita".
