    I'm sorry to report the favoritism theory is validated through this development.

    From the beginning of the affair Piche claimed that a DMCA complaint (not an electronic version like most other companies accept, mind, but a physical deadtree edition) was the sole way to take stolen artwork down. But naturally, that only holds true for us lowly peasants! A-listers just need to PM Big Man Preyfar to get their product protected as shown here by example of his pal Strype.

    FA, FA never changes.

    I'm disappointed with how easily critics are won over by acts of online empathy. But you don't get to that position and maintain it time and time again by not being charming and charismatic, no matter the actual unseemly truth underneath.

    Daww <3 You're too sweet to the furries of FA, Tiamat. They just don't give a fuck 9/10 though.

    That couldn't be any closer to the truth. Most of the posts against the outcry are just writing it all off as just people being melodramatic, and really don't say much else about the issue.

    I haven't been fully keeping up with all this, but have read through a number of pages on FA's topic (even through the bickering, blah ). Gamedog, kudos to you for being so civil and calm in this sort of situation where many are left to panic. Honestly if it had been me I'd have cowered away by now, it's just nice to watch someone take on a leadership-type role with the sole purpose of the community in mind. As well, quite pleased to see that a IMVU member (think there's 2 helping actually?) has also made their way over to fill in those who don't fully understand how the site works.

    Though, some of the stuff I'm hearing about FA's site owner (well, I guess previous owner now?) is totally bizarre. Weird bannings and such where you're forced to step around cracks as to not anger him or a topic could risk being closed. I saw someone mention about reading a wiki page to get better insight on what hes done in the past, guess I'll do that. ;o
    I just get so irritated when FAF threads turn into arguments that get closed. On minor topics it can be kind of funny when they go off-topic, but when it's a large thread like this that needs people to actually get shit done, the bickering really grinds my gears. I've been yelled at enough times for it to just not bother me anymore, so they can yell at me all they want lol

    FA's site owner (Neer) isn't normally the ony who closes most topics. On threads that are about the site, I'm sure he's the one behind it but for the most part it's the forum mods who will lock a topic if it steps an inch out of line. I'm actually surprised to see Kalmor (?? I think) delete comments and tell them to stop arguing instead of locking the topic as most mods would.

    I've not touched on the unfair banning of Rowe, and it's especially unfair if he hasn't received the adequate amount of warnings prior to being perma-banned. He doesn't seem to come around the forums much so I can't believe that he's racked up THAT many infractions in such a short amount of time to warrant a perma.
    However, like I said, I won't touch on that because discussing user bans usually gets you a slap on the wrist/thread locked/comment removed by the mods on FAF (which is entirely understandable, I wouldn't like it if the mods went around telling other users why I was banned)

    It's because Dragoneer really runs and hides from actually addressing things, leaving staff in a position to feel more frustrated in the midst of the arguing. In places like chat he's usually quick to vilify or talk poorly of people like say Furocity staff and then later talk about how he's friends with them but easy to put them down when things don't go his way.

    But of course he doesn't do it too much in public venues, just act like you're trying to listen and do nothing much works very well with people, something similar happened with another art site that many pros do not want to visit anymore.

    Just the same pattern over and over

    What gets me the most, the more I read about this, and the more I read about IMVU's own practices, is that Furaffinity sold itself to a company that has a lot to gain from stolen artwork.

    An adult art website sold itself to a company, that profits just because you want to sign up to make sure your art isn't among its stolen goods.

    A lot of people have already pointed that out, but I feel it bears repeating.
    And underlining.
    Several times.

    An art community sold itself to a company that makes it stupidly difficult for artists to protect their intellectual property and profits from it if they don't.


    Like, it was already apparent that the owner didn't care,
    but this.
    This is some next-level shit.

    Not to mention: a company that so strongly censors anything deemed "adult" that you can't even say the word "shit" over there. They put a lockdown on anything "adult" so that they can continue advertising their gift cards in store.
    This company purchased a furry website that is filled with porn.
