comical headline aside but this could be worrying for all of us, so far this "update" is confined to apple devices https://archive.md/2bX7x

Without getting political, I hope everyone is aware of a simple rhetorical tactic called "demonization." It's quite effective, and when you have media empires using that tactic...well...it's easy to manipulate people.

I hear that something called Element is becoming a good Discord alternative? I checked out something called Riot (not Riot Games) some time ago as well, which has a similar format to Discord but lacks some features.

it's as shizu feared would happen, for now it's just for iOS cuz of apple, but apple banning tumblr from their store lead to the platform scorch earthing all NSFW on there and the exodus to twitter
but it's apple's fault, right?
what they should do is stop buying apple products, their products are literally a scam and a monopoly, I remember reading that when the case of facebook for monopoly was presented they also thought to include google and apple for monopoly characteristics.

microsoft in talks with discord over a big sale tho and i fear microsoft may implement the same kinda shit like apple have since they're not so NSFW friendly either. i fucking hate big tech, also fuck apple, i refuse to use apple

Sounds like Discord's pulling a Dumblr. Seen how this story goes, especially if the Staff goes Full Dumblr and this goes universally instead of just on iOS down the line. This is how platforms that have allowed NSFW stuff Minecrafts itself if there's enough bloat.

this will have nowhere near the same impact as Tumblr

probably no one is using iOS on Discord aside from jailbreakers while probably lots more on tumblr.

discord is more like a 00s forum population overall (male/mtf, higher iq than average population, uses a good pc or android) mixed in with some twitter people

I'm on Iphone because I'm a brokefag and it was a hand-me-down.

This has most definitely not been my experience with the platform.

"World ending, women most affected".
This big headline is a very interesting symptom of something I've seen many times happening now.
It doesn't affect just erotic furry art, everything NSFW is banned from the iOS app, but they somehow got to write about furries specifically, in the headline, along with other "marginalized" community. Why? Why is the angle always prioritizing and dividing the nsfw community, while it's a global problem?
Though I guess when they did ban loli and non con, no headline complained about it...

Answered your own question.
When you view the entire world as a power play with the people on top as the oppressors, and the people on the bottom as the oppressed, then you have to try and describe any and all happenings in those terms.
If you're seeing things that way, it's not a 'global' problem, because much of that globe has 'power' and 'privilege'. Its the powerful and privileged leveraging that station onto those who don't. In this situation, the ones who don't have been identified as the furries because it turns out, while fursecution was mocked years ago, it's taken seriously now.
Though I guess when they did ban loli and non con, no headline complained about it...
"The powerful got fucked over, lol".

But seriously, go through all those headlines you mentioned and put yourself in a mindset where all human interaction is "Who is pushing who around in this situation?"
Suddenly it'll all make sense.
Because that's how they understand things, all the world's a playground and they're trying to pick out who the bullies are.
If that makes them sound like they're childish, that might be because they are.

maybe it's better that there wasn't one i imagine how many more people would be throwing this shit around like this shit with instagram that put some warning (pintrest have the same kind warning and i didn't see anyone talking about it)

Oh don't worry, my question was more rhetorical than anything.
It just annoys me to no end that the NSFW defenders among journalists always use the "marginalized" as being the sole victims of these actions.
And I agree, all of this lacks of maturity and reeks of mediocrity and disregard of journalism integrity.

thats not by choice tho

also discord is full of idiots but most of those came on after the tumblr porn purge, they moved to twitter -> naturally they gravitated to discord too.

I've been thinking of writing out what all I'd like to see in an alternative Discord type program, but I know there's going to be nobody that would end up creating it, so I've never bothered.

you'd be surprised. Not like it hurts writing out what you'd want to see in something.

It exists, it's called Guilded.

This tbqh.
Picking up responsibility over where someone else has made a colossal fuckup is brownie points before you even start, especially if its something people wanna see/use.
