just some words from hachiro...
Some Bull-Ship
I was going to send this to a Gaia exec but I'm honestly afraid of getting my account frozen/banned for dissenting, so decided to post it here instead. Maybe I'll move this to forums, I don't know. Whatever.

Anyway, I'm just a little confused as to why the whole In Deep Ship thing is allowed but "mature" roleplays aren't, exactly? I mean, obviously it's because there's money to be made with this RIG where there necessarily isn't on Barton Town, but preaching family friendly forums and then turning around to do lewd/sexually themed items to be purchased with real money from Gaia users seems hypocritical to say the least.

I'm just a little bothered by the fact that I've been giving warnings for rp content with "sexual themes" (wherein no actual sex/cybering/simulation was taking place) and that I've been told that settings like brothels or themes like prostitution/etc. in roleplays, even without explicit action therein, is policed, but when they can make a buck off users with "racy" illustrations (shower scenes? Really?) it's all suddenly good fun haha wow crazy Gaia staff! So funny! Anyway. It's kind of a slap in the face and I'm a little (rightfully) upset about it, I think, but whatever.
