I am against censorship of almost all forms, and as such I will not block people for merely disagreeing with me, however, I don't take kindly to stupidity, and as such I will not take part in any arguments with dipshits incapable of making a legitimate, cogent point, and you will be invalidated and utterly dismissed if you repeatedly use any of these common fallacies after they've been pointed out as such.

This includes but is not strictly limited to;

-anyone who responds with an insult in lieu of any form of argument

-anyone who repeats their initial argument with no additional points, clarifications, or reiteration

-use of spam

-obvious trolls

-those who use consensus as an argument

-those who use ad hominem arguments

-people who don't understand the meaning of criticism

If you have a valid grievance and a cogent point against me, and you want to debate that, have at it, good sir.

Art criticism:
--Proper; An examination of quality, technique, style, etc, or debate over the message of a piece if it contains one.
----Examples: "That part is shaped wrong" "The shading is inconsistent" "This is genuinely, objectively, and unavoidably detrimental" "The idea you are directly promoting is arguable"
--Nonsense; Insubstantial insults, matters relating to not liking the subject (with the exception of said subject being poorly executed or the exception previously mentioned), and complaints in regards to a matter of you disliking or finding something personally gross.
----Examples: "Don't draw ponies, they suck" "Don't do porn of this" "This fetish is disgusting/wrong" and most of all "I DON'T WANT TO SEE THIS, YOU WILL TAKE MY BUTTHURT SERIOUSLY!!!11!!!!"

How come you are against censorship? What kind? It could be funny if it's censored in hilarious way in shows.

When I say censorship, I mean blocking people's free speech. I believe everyone has the right to express themselves on a relevant venue, so I would never censor opinions I don't like, and would frown upon those who would (unless it becomes slander, spam, etc).

Not a big fan of MLP or vore but your stuff is certainly interesting ^^. Just felt you should know since I saw some of the ignorant comments you get. ^^

Thanks. Comments insulting my sexuality never really get to me on a personal level (beyond the fact that it's frustrating how bull-headed people can be in their petty bigotry). Still I appreciate a kind word for the sake of a kind word; No matter how few or how many people don't, it's always nice when people can not share my sexual preferences, but not feel like it divides us.

^^ welcome. I like the policy of "Live and Let Live" putting others down for the sake of trying to be right or normal is just wrong and plain stupid. There is always more than one path. Sorry if I'm sounding a bit garbled but lack of sleep will do that to a person. ^^"
