Has this been happening since July 29th? Or just recently? I also knew of a case where someone registered his account thanks to the Furaffinity support. Is that still an option or do we have to wait for this to finish?

I was curious what it meant too. It stands for child sexual exploitation material.
I guess "CP" was an inadequate descriptor.
oh jesus no wonder... that's horrible, hopefully they can figure it out soon

why are there people like this @_@;;
Furries get a lot of hate (a good chunk of it well earned) but this is more likely someone or many someones with a vendetta against Neer and the site, which is actually pretty understandable even if the means by which they're pursuing this vendetta are utterly unacceptable.

As @Nexus Cabler said, Child Sexual Exploitation Material. I use it as I have seen multiple survivors and survivor advocacy organizations voice legitimate concerns about the use of "pornography" to describe it. The main point I see raised is that "pornography" could suggest agency or consent on the part of the minor, while CSEM makes it very clear that the material by its nature is inherently exploitative. It's not a race I have a horse in, but if the people who do voice a preference, I will make an effort to honor it.

A ton of pornography is already incredibly exploitative so that differentiation seems pointless to me. It's not like porn is one of those things with an upstanding image to preserve. "Ethical porn" is an outlier by quantity and market share, and is typically the domain of drawn material and amateur content (and even then it's sometimes pretty bad)

I'd rather they not waste their time trolling, there are better avenues of action to put their energy towards, but what I'd rather people do and what they want to do are not the same thing.

Oh my god, that content was being distributed on the website? ._.

Just. Jesus. I hope the person/people responsible are made to face the legal consequences, because sharing images of abuse re-victimises people all over again.

I don’t know if this is true information or not but I saw someone say that the photos that were shared were drawings and CG? But then others say that it was real so- I don’t know, I just hope it gets fixed. Could I know what happened with Neer also, if possible?

It's a long complicated story and this isn't the place to go in depth. I've been told the pictures were very much actual photos and frankly I will settle for the second hand knowledge seeing as I would rather not invite the Internet equivalent of Roko's Basilisk into my life.

I see- Well...Let’s hope nothing like that ever comes back and that the situation gets fixed soon
