How stupid is this?  
Alright, so I just got an email from FanFiction.Net. Apparently, they removed my story, Empty of Tomorrow (S/X, Buffy Fandom, with no actual sex) because my summary had the word 'shit' in it.

The summary reads as this: "Running from the very things he wants, Xander discovers that the truths about the world really do depend primarily on your point of view, and that love-- like shit-- just happens. [XS]"

Hello, have they ever heard the phrase 'shit happens'? That's what I was referring to. Ever since they decided to ban NC-17 fics, FF.Net has been on this cleanliness crusade that I find to be quite annoying and stupid. (I also find it amusing, considering the sort of reputation they used to have--talk about extremes! They're not even thinking. How about, instead of removing the story, and all the reviews, they ask you to edit the part they're upset about? Concept! The stupidity hurts my brain.

I posted that months ago, before they started making you reread the bloody rules every day. *pft* Didn't even cross my mind when I read the new rules, because it's a common phrase. I had a clean record before this, and they're limiting my ability to post?

Also, apparently because of my 'infraction', I won't be able to post for a while. They make it sound like I defaced a monument or something. X_x

Hey, FF.N? Shit, Shit, Shit, Shit, Shit.
Also, I have some suggestions as to where you can shove your freak'n infraction.

Who, clearly, was already in a bad mood.

I detest fanfiction.net. I used to have stories there but I removed them long ago (after the famous "Let's ban all NC-17 fics"). I wonder what happened to them... Are there different people running the site now, or what the hell? I mean, it used to be a great place, at least better than what it's become. Now it seems it's filled with amateurs who don't even bother to check the spelling in their fic!

My stuff has stayed on FF.Net mosdtly because I can't write actual sex-scenes (I always choke). But if they're going to start being so absurdly picky, I think I'm going to be in trouble...

I have no idea as to what happened. It's utterly bizarre. *sighs*

Hey, I was gonna say that! ^_~

Someone needs to build a new ff.net. -_-;
I know! Right now, the only alternative is AdultFanfiction.Net, but I don't write sex scenes, so... I'm in this weird limbo. Too risque for FF.Net, too tame for AFF.Net.

who is just difficult, obviously

I don't post fic so I can't recommend these from that standpoint, and I haven't glanced at either in a while, but here are two other sites you might consider:

* fandomination.net
* Freedom of Speech Fan Fiction

Awww, thanks so much, sweetie!

I am so amazed by the staying power of people who still post at that repository of crap.

*blush* I guess I don't want to leave the nice readers I have there... I do get a ton of kind comments. *sheepish*

Holy bloody fucking fuckity fuck.

Have they had a palace coup and been replaced by Daleks out there? Do they ever READ the stories they archive?

*supports Meredith like whoa*

I don't know about the palace coup, but I find this new conservative wave pretty damn funny, compared to the shit they used to allow on there. I mean, NC-17 Scooby Doo? It was all there, including My Little Pony. *laughs* Now the word 'shit' is taboo. Talk about extremes.

*appreciates Shezan like whoa*

NC-17 Scooby Doo????

I need to wash my eyes with Cognac.

*hands over Cognac* Sorry! ^^;

I second the Daleks. Something very totalitarian going on over there...

If I didn't know better, I'd say I smelt Dub-yah. ^_~

FF just sucks big time ...
They removed one of my stories just because there came a song in one of the chapters, for "copyright reasons" (and I had credited it!!!!)

It's just so stupid, I mean, it's Fanfiction for God's sake ! All those stories have "copyright issues"...
As long as we don't make any profit out of it, I really don't see what can be the problem ...
