Do you think that any of the artists that DNP will return?

Unfortunately I think our only hope now for enjoying both pro and anti-censorship artists' work on the same website in peace once again is a tagged imageboard with no DNP rules and servers hosted in a place relatively safe against legal action from those artists. Pakistan? Romania? Vietnam? Who knows.
A far from ideal (or practical) solution :/

If 'maybe don't do nazi stuff' made them leave then people are better off not seeing their work.

The bottom line is that this is an issue about rights. Artists want the right to create and post what they want to make. Because when you start taking away One thing, it becomes very easy to take away other things. Sure it starts with Aryanne and such, but then it expands to characters who expressed certain Ideology in the show such as Starlight Glimmer when she first arrived, a character who made everyone equal, or rather Equal underneath her.

Artists are aware of rights removing trends and while at first it always looks good, it is done in a way that makes those who protest look as if they support the things being removed, when in reality all the are doing is defending their right as artists to make and share what they create.

You're right! I see no difference whatsoever! Whew, what a SLIPPERY SLOPE that could have been!

Proof that Left and Right are mutually incompatible…

Pretty sure this is just Authoritarians vs Liberals instead of Right vs Left.
Right Wing Authoritarians are probably happy with the change aswell as it gets the ball running to ban more and other stuff. For example, banning specific things in Porn images since they are "Problematic" aka degenerate.
It's the Liberals from both sides of the spectrum that want to see the Censorship go away.

Except that is how alot of things start off and its happened many many times across history.
I may not like or agree with the art and depictions people want to make and share. But I dont belive anyone should remove the right to create what they want. Artistic Expression can be used to educate, relive stress, deal with personal problems, or even make political statements if the artists wish. In the end it is their choice and right to craft what they wish. If I dont like it, I will use my filters, it really is that simple.

Natch.

Also I would like to remind everybody that Tumblr's 2018 suicide began as good-intentioned censorship of "hate speech" and "sexism".

Maybe they would if they had literally no other choice because Derpibooru was the only imagebooru in the fandom. But there are now many other alternatives, so I don't see a reason why they'd ever come back. The anti-censorship crowd will move to Ponybooru, Rainbooru or Ponerpics; the anti-Nazi crowd will move to Furbooru or Bronibooru. The only people who will stay on Derpibooru are the actual staff (although some have already quit), people who think that all the other boorus are too "extreme" or simply refuse to leave Derpibooru for whatever reasons.

tumblr's death was never due to good intentions, nor due to any sort of "purity spiral"; some shitty-for-everyone SESTA/FOSTA laws were passed and all the giant corporations freaked out; and since corporations were never on anyone's side, certainly not the side of any actual humans nor that of the site's users, they responded "fuck it, we're not dealing with this"

@PurpleSmart2
lmao, no one's going to rainbooru except some exxxxtra skull-and-crossbones types who somehow don't care that the site is shite

I'll have to admit that Rainbooru hasn't been running very well so far, but Ponybooru and Ponerpics are doing much better in that regard. And no, they're not being used by "exxxxtra skull-and-crossbones types". Who is that even supposed to refer to? 17th century pirates?

The people there simply have had enough of Derpibooru's censorship.

With tsp's words lately, I think it's safe to say unless tsp does the decent thing and relinquish his ownership (like that's ever going to happen), I don't think they're coming back.

Turns out that you fascists who want to ban everything that doesn't fit your ideology aren't actually the majority.

Nobody is returning to this forsaken hellhole run by a delusional fascist. Good job Twitter woke mob, you've killed another platform in the name of your Fuhrer.


yes, the people who don't like nazis are the REAL fascists
