So one of the admins said "start a thread" re: the recent change to the Discord rules that prohibit outright pornography (defined as images containing genitals or breasts) in the NSFW channel. So I'm doing that. My perspective is that it was a useful channel have for a couple of reasons. Sometimes, you're having a conversation in another channel where something very NSFW comes up; in those cases, the channel can serve as a useful way to carry on that conversation without stifling anybody, while at the same time giving people the ability to manage the content they have to deal with. The other thing is that there were some conversations that were inherently unsafe for life, but fun to have, even if you couldn't accept shitting up other channels with them. Dr. Letha's contributions to the channel are a good example of this - they were fucking hilarious examples of pornography gone wrong. I don't think anybody actually masturbated to them, but being able to see them posted has improved my life. I don't think we should encourage any of our Discord channels to be environments where you go to have a fap or a schlick. But I also don't think that's what the channel was really used for, anyway. Aside from one guy who was banned for his abuse of the channel, anyway. New rules aren't a good way to keep that kind of culture in place. Cultural pressure is. I'd rather have a general understanding that it's cool for people, mods or not, to tell people to stop shitting up a channel with something that isn't in the spirit of things, and get backed up by mods if it doesn't stop (and the mods turn out to agree). It'd be healthier for the community if we all learned that continuing to knowingly piss other people off isn't acceptable, even if it's by doing something that's technically allowed. Let's not let trolls claim "I'm not touching you!" That said, turning off automatic embedding in NSFW would be a good idea. I've got no problems with that. Not everybody wants to see Letha's carnival show of body horror but I think we can all cope knowing it's there. But seriously turn it back on in general, I'm not sure why that was disabled. I'm not making a poll because this isn't a democracy - make an argument and maybe you'll convince somebody with it, but I don't think weight of numbers is likely to do it on this one. EDIT: Oh hey, apparently this worked. If you're the sort of person who just reads OP and responds, the status quo is restored, but remember - don't be a shitheel about it. Keep your porn collection between you and your preferred image board.
