Happy 12/16 everybody!!!!!!
« on: December 16, 2015, 09:29:20 pm »
Five years ago, as you all know, the shopping cart that was FA and it's userbase was given a gentle push down a steep hill and we all watched it rattle down the street right into a semi. Sean Piche was discovered to be a horrible human being! Wan managed to be even worse! Both of these people still breath free air! Nobody even tried to get them fired or doxxed or anything!

Meanwhile the people who pulled it off disappeared, having successfully adhered to the old rule of "do it big, do it once, don't tell anyone". Barring an encore where they dropped the Watch Your Step database in an effort to clarify whatever the fuck it was their motivations were, they disappeared for good in a cloud of apparent shame and regret for the damage they caused.

Nothing's gotten better, everyone is at each other's throats even more, and the real world continues to get orders of magnitude worse. Furry isn't even worth burning to the ground anymore!

Share all your favorite memories of trouble in cartoon animal sex paradise in this stupid fucking thread!!!

It's gotta be that time where there was a MLP-themed banner for a single weekend that made so many people on the site angry.

The FA buyout is too obvious a choice, so Im going with this since it seems to me to be pretty representative of the year in general, inside and outside of murryland.

*edit* It occurs to me that if you just mean in relation to FA, then it would probably be the limp dicked attempt at sucession for the FA Forums. Even though Neer pretty much got everything he wanted at the end, it was still pretty amusing while it lasted.

Nobody had to get Dragoneer fired... He did a great job doing that himself. If you recall, he was laid off a year or two after 12/16, stumbling around on unemployment before finding employment at Amazon, which he hated and wanted to get out of.

Sean getting laid off from Mantech set in motion the events that have gotten us to where we are today, and Mantech didn't need anyone to tell them he wasn't the great computer expert he likes to pretend he is

Honestly I was talking more about getting Adam Wan fired. There was a window, starting from about when he did those cub commissions, where it might have been possible to forward those and other obvious key bits over to his superiors, co-workers and HR at Thales. A long shot, but if the "drawn child pornography" angle and the "this man is a sexual harassment lawsuit waiting to happen" angle were sold just right it might have worked.

It probably wouldn't have gotten them anywhere near as shocked and disgusted as we are, but it might have gotten them to take a closer look at his capabilities and decide that another UI janitor was more suited for the job. I don't think the window is really open anymore due to how long ago the whole thing was at this point. It was a long shot even then.

This obviously would have been a SUPER low blow and a genuine escalation of hostilities - like, Anonymous bad. Gamergate bad. It was not on the table for fear of what he might do in response; he might have started actually stalking and threatening Ferality and their friends in real life and that would have made things immeasurably worse.

Whatever. He's still around, and is still trying to groom younger female artists. Maybe it should have been tried anyway given how little things have improved.

I understand you want them out of the subculture (and possibly in a prison cell), but I dont think thats happening. The furry subculture has several people who get caught and even convicted doing some fucked up shit, pedos, dogfuckers, you name it. Very few of them seem to disappear because of it. Furry is just too eager to provide a hugbox for anyone, long as those people can "give back" to the furry community. Adam Wan draws fappable porn and thats enough to make them infallible in most furry eyes. I feel like, theres only two ways Adam Wan will fade from relevance and maybe go away.

 One is if he cant or wont draw. Short of a combine harvester accident or someone taking a bat to his hands, thats pretty damn unlikely.

Second, hed have to attack someone with as much or more social capital than him in the subculture. Unless he rapes or murders Piche, Conway, or one of their close friends, hes probably fine.

I know all of this, but that doesn't mean that this state of affairs should be accepted. The fact that Sibe continues to try and pull his shit despite 20 years of assery and a literal criminal record doesn't mean people should give up beating on him; the same is true of Wan.

No, stuff outside of FA is perfectly acceptable. FA can only get less relevant in the next 5 + years. In fact, the biggest bad actor in furry isn't Piche and his band of merry men anymore; it's Bad Dragon.

Think about it; they've been pushing people around, buying up websites that people actually use, and have been pushing the commercialization of furry every bit as badly as IMVU has. But instead of some random Web 2.1 startup with seemingly no goal other than pushing free-to-play tweenage garbage, it's got an actual legitimate criminal organization at it's center.

The stuff talked about in the Shane revelations are really every bit as bad as anything found in those FA notes from five years ago except almost nobody's talking about them. Things so bad that they actually caused one of the zoophiles involved to defect. This is something that simply does not happen, and it's not getting half the attention it should.

I just think at this point, the Wans and Sibes can only be dealt with via actual ass beatings. Unfortunately, the law probably would protect them more than any of their own victims. So running around, reminding people how awful they are it is then.

And I 100% agree about Bad Dragon and Ive been saying this for a while now. Their attempts to monopolize pretty much everything would be enough to make me weary of them, but when you mix in the theft, dogfuckery, employee abuse, and Varkas connections to  people like Spink,  theyre just plain Bad News™.

I dont touch anything theyre involved in with a ten foot pole and try to motherfuck them whenever I can to anyone who will listen, but theyre the new golden boys on the block who can do no wrong so it hasnt been much use.

It also doesnt help that theyre one of the few furry entities out there with both the money and will to sue for libel/slander, so anything you say better be backed up.
