“She is DANGER to other road users - especially those driving - she will distract you with her sexiness”
At one point, some folks from fet decided to increase the noise to signal ratio and spam the abuse report database with a bunch of joke entries on themselves.
Maymay pointed out how “group social dynamics intended to cover up information about possible abuses from spreading through social networks” could actually be mapped by analyzing these entries.
As fascinating as that was, I’m struck by how many of these joke entries involve being hot without consent of the viewer. That’s so meta it makes my brain hurt.
She is just too yummy and nice. I want to play with her forever. Mainly between her boobs.
should not be allowed to post pictures as she is to dam sexy
Constantly distracts people with tight corsets and fantastic tits
For being too much of a bird and flirting with me.
She is slimmer than me. I did NOT consent to this. I demand she stops this instant.
Makes my mouth water for his cock
Seriously smoking hot. She made my knees go wobbly. I’m pretty sure I didn’t consent to fancying her. ;)
I’m sure some of these people are actually dating or friends with the people in question. And that they think they’re being cute. But really, it’s just kinda icky and creepy. Way to demonstrate that we don’t need no consent tools or education.
It’s not that Facebook permits criminal accusations because they’re sympathetic to potential rape victims and what the hey, we’re a massive company, who cares if we get sued. Every company out to make a profit doesn’t want to get sued. Facebook in fact, does permit criminal accusations to be made via Facebook before they are decided by a trial, sometimes with unusual results. Facebook doesn’t take a stance on criminal accusations because it’s not their fucking problem. The second they try to control it, they create a precedent for deciding that it is their fucking problem - and then they’re going to have to answer the question of why they didn’t comb through a seriously gigantic amount of data to find all the shit that a judge or a jury thinks they ought to have found. That’s not how Facebook’s going to roll. If you have a problem with something someone said on Facebook, Facebook will cheerfully direct you to your local law enforcement.
Take a look at that. That’s how a company with a legit team on counsel handles their business, as opposed to John Baku and whatever dinky mail-order law-school drop-out he picked up at the local bar five years ago or whatever the fuck he did instead of trying to run his business like something other than a clueless fuckhead. If you’re going to cover your ass, cover your ass fucking properly.
Right. So. FetLife is Canadian, so oh noes we cannot name the rapists. Yes, Canada does have much stronger privacy laws than the United States. I wonder if that’s why they’re running this shit out of Dallas. John Baku is based out of Vancouver, but his staff is scattered all over North America. Honestly, we don’t even know to what extent FetLife “is” a Canadian company. According to what I just linked to, they registered their domain in Arizona. I think that complicates the “oh no we’re Canadian” defense a wee bit.
But what really complicates the “oh noes they’re naming the rapists” argument is the whole “oh noes they’re talking about pedophilia and bestiality and whatnot but oh hey watch us not give a shit” argument. If FetLife really had legal reasons for covering their ass, they’d do a much better job. That means that, yeah, John Baku needs to step up and tell us why he supports a self-admitted abuser’s right to not have his old username besmirched over the right of a human being to talk about some devastating shit that happened to them. Shit that they might’ve not had to go through if people could use FetLife to warn each other about people on FetLife. Which is all we’re asking.
tl;dr Fuck you, FetLife. Fuck you raw.
