Hey guys, satanisthesavior here. I just wanted to say a few things. Before we go anywhere, this post is not meant to be funny at all, so feel free to skip if that's what you're looking for.
Anyways, as anyone who doesn't live under a rock is aware, this site is currently being destroyed by the faggot who goes by the name of Pinkie Pie. He claims that advertisers are leaving funnyjunk because of porn being posted outside ****, and is banning anyone who even so much as says that maybe banning so many people is a bad idea. Maybe I'll be added to that list. Who knows. However, I would like to call Pinkie out for a moment here...
First of all, since when are advertisers fleeing from funnyjunk due to porn? We've heard this SAME story at least three times in the past two years, and there is less porn outside **** than ever before. Lacking evidence, I refuse to believe that, yet again, advertisers are dropping funnyjunk like a hot pan because of the miniscule amount of porn on it that is posted outside ****. I absolutely refuse to believe that ********.
Second, why perma-bans? A lot of the people being banned by this are being banned for **** they posted months, or even years ago. Do you really think it's fair to ban someone who posted porn once outside **** but otherwise has been a good member on this site? Or, on that note, is it fair to ban anyone who so much as calls you out on this faggotry? Even if you succeed in "cleaning up fj" you will only be left with a handful of users, as most will get banned or just get tired of this **** and leave willingly, which means that even if the site is clean there simply wont be enough users left to keep it up anyways (not if the ******** about the advertisers is to be believed at least).
Third, I think the real problem here is image rolling. Every time I've seen porn outside **** it's been either on a profile or on one of the boards. Now, porn on the boards not being cool I can understand, but on profiles too? Honestly, I've NEVER seen someone get pissed off about going to someones profile and stumbling upon porn there. Maybe instead of banning everyone, you should just get rid of image rolling. Really, that's the easiest solution, as outside of trolls that is the only way porn outside **** ends up in high traffic areas.
Just my honest thoughts on the situation.
