Apparently, people are forgetting that and it's setting a very dangerous precedent. There shouldn't be anything controversial about saying "Fuck Nazis."

Mr. Ad Hominem themselves over here… the discussion is not about wither nazis are bad, but wither it's OK to censor a trivial, satirical, representation of it.

I don't think any true Nazi would not take offense to Aryanne, it's basically mocking their ideology.

Reminder that "Nazism vs. Communism" was what the "Ask Mods Questions" thread devolved into and was locked for. Do not look at antagonizing posts. Do not reply to antagonizing posts. Report antagonizing posts.

Wait, question for any mods who may or may not be listening. Is reporting people that call for Aryanne to be fully banned legitimate under "whining about filterable content"?

Oh boy, people derailing the thread with politic-specific semantic arguments and antagonizing instead of discussing the actual issue of artistic censorship regardless of political leaning.

Can we please not do that? This is actually kind of important to keep on topic.

To be fair, there's only so many ways to say "This is bad".

If conversation wasn't the goal why not just make a poll instead of a thread, not that it would matter since this isn't a democracy anyway.

No problem. I'll be paying attention to the thread as it evolves.

@koznyshev
Right now it's a game of whack-a-mole and I'm mostly concerned with people being generally shitty and derailing things. However, if you feel there is something you should report, report it and we can look into it.

A poll would at least give us a good idea of just how many people agree/disagree with this change. Though it'd have to be held on the site. I'm pretty confident that your average derpibooru user doesn't even know that this change was made, or even cares one way or the other, and the only way it'd even reach most people is either word of mouth or a site-wide poll that's advertised on the site.

I think my post began leading up to the N v C, but that was not my intention to do so. Sorry if it seems or has lead to such talk. I thank you for this thread for it was needed.

That was… Strange. An Aryanne image was up for about 10 minutes, deleted, "revived" somehow, then it stayed up for almost an hour before being deleted again. I thought something kinda changed for once but I guess not.

I already dont upload anything here anymore if it makes you feel better.


@Candel
I would like to think that less pony = bad for basically everybody that isn't crazy.
As long as the poll was worded fairly and the admins actually take steps to prevent botting then i think it wouldn't be a big deal.

The problem is that they can still have a poll and not give a crap about it, they aren't beholden to any sort of consensus from the users except for the ultimate consensus of people just choosing not to come here in favor of another site. They are probably just assuming, or hoping, that people wont notice since the old stuff is still there and that they wont leave as a result of the change.

This has made me realize that neither this censorship nor the previous instance of it were actually announced. Even though they're very noticeable rule changes that all users of Derpibooru should be made aware of.

No, the twitter post about BLM doesn't count, Twitter isn't Derpibooru.
