Sei, i'm grateful for your post, but there's some things that are just untouchable. I'm going to try to calmly explain myself.>all I could think was, why?
I'll tell you why. The answer is that it shouldn't matter. It shouldn't be important. That's it. That's all there is to it. >It creates a walled garden where a lot of new people will not want to begin posting on the site.
Why? Let me ask why now. Why should every single person, every single drifter that comes in be completely immune from potentially having their feeling a little rustled? >Get upset at "bad" words or a little rude language, you silly faggot. Speech is free and our userbase has a dark sense of humor. Deal w/it.
Remember? I could go on and on about every group that could be offended. The fundamental issue is with the obsession with irrationally trying to make everybody and everything comfortable, always. Muslims, transexuals, jews, blacks, clowns, nuns, mimes, candle stick makers. On and on and on.
Maybe, just maybe, some people aren't good for the site. Maybe, those people are the types who can't handle a cartoon. Who can't find it within them self to talk about things because of a lewd picture somebody drew.
As for loli. what about my questions? Can you even define loli? How do you know what is and isn't? What is shock imagery? Piss, candle wax, blood, insects. This, is insanity.
>also a kind of freedom which is important
Why? How many new users are actually coming in? Is this place really such a magnet? I don't think so. I think preexisting users are more important because they make discussion worthwhile. That's what i've seen. If new users don't like what older ones have to offer, the discord is always available to them. Face it, that's where 99% go anyway, right?
I didn't want to pull this card, but right now i'm between a moving train and a cliff side.
I remember when this site was at critically low activity this last summer. The site needed donations to keep going and the last day arrived. Then another day and another, and another. Finally, I took money from what's strictly my emergency fund and donated it. In three days or pleading, not the 100+ people on discord, nor mods, nor writer, nor the fifteen active users here could collectively pull 55 or something dollars together. 9 people would have to give 5 dollars.
I'm a janitor. I can't count the number of times I've deleted a barrage of spam posts at 2 or 3 in the morning. I never took breaks, not on vacation, or when I was sick, or when I had family over. Every day I diligently checked.
I'm the reason video embedding exists. I took the initiative on that.
For the last 2+ years I've been extremely active. I've wrote walls of text after walls of text because I'm passionate about uboachan. Halloween threads, Christmas, New Years Eve. Now i'm going to be muzzled? For the sake of who? The supposed half of the, "userbase", who I've barely hears a peep from about this? I feel despair, not discomfort, all encompassing dread, for me, for the here, for the internet, for the future.
