Don't think anyone is taking it up with PyTom or US Congress. (Think there were other threads for this but did not participate/read yet.)Samu-kun wrote:I think people are misunderstanding something. The current hentai forum has little to do with protecting people of weaker sensibilities from questionable content and more to do with complying with US adult entertainment industry regulations. Gore and violence is permitted in the general section since it would be permissible under US law to advertise such content to general audiences. Game of Thrones would not belong in the adult section since it's not required under US law to be restricted to adults. Kana Imouto would have to be restricted because it has a penis in it. Take this issue up with the US Congress, not Pytom, since he can't do anything about that.
Does not mean no one can do anything about this. Different subject. Many other forums/chans have different ways of dealing with sub-forum issue. Not always better but since admin can make difference, admin can do "some"thing.
Also to be noted: "If intention removed and just judge on empirical history", 18+ access always mean to infer protecting people of weaker sensibilities. US law happen to sync with traditional method of access-restricted feature. Gore and violence would be subject to this too if flame war happens in general forum and if US law deems gore and violence as "inappropriate". RenPy games has not yet encountered Gantz-class work of notability but if betting man, would put money on PyTom caving to this:
