Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

The weekday furries that come into the store usually aren't too bad, they generally just come in wearing a tail, and that's it.

The weekend ones though are a pain. Coming in full furry costumes, and having sex in the bathrooms and out by the dumpsters.

How are you defining furry? Therians, otherkin, and Disney (or any anthropomorphized) characters may not apply depending on whom you're asking.

Pretty much. I make a point not to engage in this normally, myself.

Also, to go along with what Dissever said, I'm not entirely sure everyone is always talking about exactly the same things when they say "furries". Also, I've heard of a lot weirder stuff than this people can be into, and met some people who are into some of them, and in the grand scheme of things being furry seems as harmless as most other preferences.

Besides, it's possible that, in time, the internet will make furries of us all. icon-waspy.gif

I think you'll find people have as little sympathy for them too. Nothing like seeing a three hundred pound guy with Spock ears farting every time he so much as moves.

At the very least, I'll give furries this, of the various fanatical fanbases, they seem to manage to keep their eight down. Probably from all that running pretending to be wolves, or stallions, or something.

If you're not a furry, they're all furries. If you are what others would consider a furry, then therians, otherkin, etc matter a LOT more. It's TRUKK NOT MUNKY or FIRRIB/FIBRIR territory.

Exactly. I guess I could be considered one under the loose definition, but all the... weird stuff that the label has gotten associated with is too much trouble to bother wearing. I don't want to have to waste 20 minutes explaining that no, I don't believe I have the soul of a wombat, or whatever sick stuff people think it means. I just like using animal stereotypes in stories, that's all.

Furries really get a lot of jive from practically everyone.

It's pretty much the "most accepted" group to just generally hate on.

That kinda sucks if you are one of them. icon-wildride.gif

The vocal majority basically ruins it for the same ones.

But of all the fetish fandoms out there, it does have a lot of drama. Everything from complaining about stealing artwork, original character do not steal, fursecution, etc.

Yeah, of all the groups that people generally sprinkle their disdain on, I think it's close to universal among them that furries are the most creepily misguided.
The fascination with all of it is goddamn baffling, personally. But I collect toys for kids, so I dunno if I'm fit to evaluate how anyone gets their jollies.

The thing is, furry is a broad enough category to be almost a meaningless word. It runs a spectrum from "thinks Disney stories with humanoid animals are cool" to "wants to have sex with animals" to "thinks they are actually a werewolf stuck in human form".

I never thought that was actually part of the whole furry thing, myself. I'd heard of the fursuits or whatever, and attraction to anthro versions of animals or animal characters. But actual animals? Never heard that.

That's cool.

QUOTE
to "wants to have sex with animals"

As long as they don't cross into the realm of actually doing it (which even in the furry fandom is looked down upon, except in the the fringes), then whatever. Drawing someone doing their dog never hurt anyone, unless someone saw it by accident and needed eye bleach. Fantasizing about it, fine, just don't tell everyone about it. Start eying someone's pussy, and then you're crossing the line.

QUOTE

Mostly harmless in theory, though there are some who end up having children and try to push that onto them, or try to get feral.
