The Anti-Censorship DNP Pledge

At least they removed the garbage that bans "trivializing" Nazis. It could feasibly be used to ban virtually everything even remotely Nazi-related, since you can probably argue that anything combining Nazis (the subject) and MLP (the requirement to be on this site) is automatically "trivializing" regardless of what the actual intent is. That's my take anyways.

This should probably (emphasis) not be where it ends, but other people can better decide that.

@Background Pony #5E45
Could? It was explicitly described as "will" (remove any image that portrays nazis as "cute/funny", i.e. any that doesn't bash them).

And yes, the rule 0 change needs to be reverted as well. Can't exactly see whether the BLM rule change is removed or not because it's an unspoken rule, but hopefully it'll be gone too. That's about all, come to think of it.

Banning tags with no other reason other than "We don't like it"

Yeah, it has NOTHING whatsoever to do with people using "cute" to (inadvertently or not) normalize and sanitize imagery representing a hate ideology that systematically murdered millions of people. Nope, nothing behind it at all other than just plain old personal dislike!

There are plenty of people cheering Derpi on and demanding other tags be banned, and with the way things are looking they will most likely have their way.

Oh man, you mean we might finally get rid of the kiddie porn, too? Cool. We should have dumped Nazis a long time ago if we're getting that as a two-for-one deal!

"Borderline" nothing.

Friendly reminder to all in this thread: even if they step back on some of this, they're still fully intent on boiling that frog and will do this again, it will just be in smaller, less blatantly obvious steps. They've already demonstrated a willingness to engage in these bad behaviors and the moment they think that they can achieve the goal of removing "undesirable" opinions they will do so. Moving your work off-site to somewhere else is the best possible course of action you can take.

I've sent in my DNP few days ago, but I was scared to post here in fear of getting shadowbanned
But mods here seem pretty chill, so here I go;

This pains me, cause I've been using Derpibooru as an archive to supplement Twitter’s shitty archive system.
But I am willing to throw my hat in for the freedom of speech


P.S.
I just wanna point out that I got trips on DNP list, one digit behind Rhorse : P

I will be moving to Rainbooru and Twibooru whenever that comes out.

You know, the saddest thing is: Derpibooru could have ignored the crazy people telling them to start banning things because "muh downvotes". Something you really shouldn't be obsessing with anyway. Just draw what makes you happy and ignore the number.
Derpibooru could have made a statement or donation in support of whatever organizations they wanted to promote, and it's likely nobody would be upset.
Instead they got caught up in the excitement, and when the Twitter cult of woke got a taste of blood with the first round of bans in early June, they inevitably demanded Derpi to double down. Give an inch and they'll want a mile. I think it's too late. Even if derpi wanted to roll back the changes, wokescolds will be livid and try to get the media to call the fandom "racist" again.
The bans don't even affect me or any of my friends who are leaving. I don't enjoy Aryanne artwork personally and really I had no interest in drawing stuff about stupid IRL politics. But the double standards and recent actions of the staff have been too much to ignore. I'm not going to wait for this website to be become pony ResetERA.

I deeply appreciate Derpibooru for allowing this thread to stay up and let our voices be heard, as well as hosting my art for all these years. I wish everyone the best of luck.

Thank you for speaking your mind and providing Excellent points. The woke mob will never be satisfied. They will only take and take, and wont even participate in the new world they created. They just wanna feel good in the moment.

Rule #6: Off-topic
Slippery slope is real. I don't like censorship. It's only the matter of time until this place turns into the safe-space echo chamber with nothing but diaper porn and pride flag pandering. Filled my DNP until better times.

You did the Right thing. These people who run this site forgot where Bronies came from. We were Birthed out of the Tyranny of Censorship to fight it head on. They dont know anything about the very Fandom they are apart of. They really thought we would site their idly by and let them censor us and justify it.

Quick two cents.

I've seen a few people say they don't plan to reverse their DNPs even if the staff resolves this whole mess. People are upset, but I don't think holding a grudge after they listen is a productive mentality. This is all in an effort to have this site run the way you want it to be. If you leave anyway, than it'll have all been for nothing.

They don’t but they kinda see communities in more as stereotypes and in worse of ways and often their own characters. For example DnD orcs- when think about that controversies, The person who made the claim is the actual racist, not the company. This also due to different factors
1. The savior complex
2. A Narrow view on the world as a whole
3. A false sense of guilt placed by someone else.
4. Peer pressure
5. addiction to rage.
6. Delayed development to sense of finding purpose.

The fifth is would be heavily affected by selective censorship as it would result in a withdrawal and that where it get as if every opposing voice is censored, it could lead the addict to lash out to those with similar views in order to get that sense of power, but it would be short as the viewpoints would be almostnthe same.

I'd not say "run how you want" even, as much as "run how it's always been"

That really doesn't seem like too much to ask after nearly a decade of otherwise relatively calm operation.

To be fair, the frog boiling analogy isn't inaccurate at this point and they may not have hope that things will ever get better (they certainly never will be the same).
