I have a very clear position about what I want to be allowed on the site and what not. You can read about this in the site rules
Some people expressed their concern that they might get themselves into legal trouble just for accessing a site that - in their point of view - condones pedophilia.
Nobody is forced to access the site, and to hear people blaming me for condoning child abuse (because that’s what pedophilia means) just because I allow stories of fictional characters under the fictional age of 18 to have fictional sex is really upsetting me. A lot. You saw the reaction.
If that comes from anon …holes, I can live with that. If it comes from people I held in high regard, it gets to me a lot more (I’ve talked with that person in the mean time, and it seems like I misjudged his motivation).
I wasn’t sure if I wanna bring back GSS at all. But the reaction after I’ve pulled the plug was massive (and overwhelmingly positive), so I’ve come to a decision:
GSS is back now, but I’ve implement some changes.
For one, there’s now a default filter, called Safe Mode, that blocks certain tags, like ‘teen’, “boy”, “age regression” and “incest”. This filter is always active for anon people (using no account). Only people with a registered account can disable that filter in their user profile.
I will also go through all stories and tag any story with any high-school, college or similar content with that tag. I’ll be very generous with that tag, so expect everything that remotely sounds like a character below 20 could be involved to be tagged.
The block will be absolute, so even the search function will not return anything blocked.
Expect further restriction to anon users as well. On one hand I want to allow anon access because our authors certainly want the hurdles for reading their stories as low as possible. But on the other hand, creating an account is basically anonymous anyway (with all the anon email providers on the net) and an account makes things so much easier for me to implement, too.
So I’ll probably disable certain functions for anon users and also limit how far you can look back into the archives (maybe even to a month or so).
On the other hand, I plan to add other ways to create an account, like using FIDO2, which could work without using an email at all (even though that would also disable email notifications). But that’s all just ideas yet.
