Update on Zippo

I just received a note over on FurAffinity from one of the admins to give me an update. It already looked like Zippo had been banned, not just because of what happened with me, but because there have been many complaints about her (I thought Zippo was a him, but the admin said he is actually a she).

So it turns out that Zippo started contacting the admins to harrass them about her ban, which wound up getting her banned status set to permanent.

So I'm not sure if it was an IP ban or just username, but from what I was told it doesn't look like Zippo should be able to cause any more trouble with any other artists, at least on FA.

Just wanted to give you guys an update. And please, no more arguments about my stances on what I will and won't draw. It's really not pertinent to the situation what my standards for drawing are. The point is that a threat of bodily harm was made, and due action was taken against the user who did such.

While I won't pretend that I was an angel in this situation, which I wasn't by any means AFTER Zippo flipped out on my journal and made threats, being "snarky" is in no way just as bad as threatening to physically harm someone, whether you mean it or not. Being "mean" doesn't exactly match up with breaking the law (it IS against the law to threaten someone with physical violence, even on the Internet).

So no more arguing about all that stuff, okay, guys? I think these are points that pretty much got driven into the ground in my last post. So those of us in disagreement over stuff, let's just agree to disagree and wash our hands of that whole mess.
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

In my experience "permanent" bans aren't all that permanent on FA plus it's pretty retarded that they ban it (I refuse to acknowledge it's gender) over harassing the admins rather than making death threats.

But let's hope it stays banned this time. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Just because someone's snarky doesn't mean you get to make death threats, not to mention the fact it sent you death threats over not wanting to draw animal cocks. I mean, people don't realize artists look at reference when drawing stuff and not everyone wants to look at that shit.

The death threats were not posted on FA, but via an IM service. They couldn't ban him unless the threat was made on FA. And believe me, I know a few Admins who wanted to ban him, but couldn't at the time.

Thankfully he has been banned, although in my opinion, if someone is banned from a site, shouldn't they be totally removed from the site? His gallery is still up...

uh, thaily... did you change the picture name on your server? i could've sworn this used to be a picture of some of Zippo's batshittery, but now it's a completely unrelated picture of an old entry by banrai...

Glad to see it was dealt with properly.

That just adds to the sad, usually the women are the sane ones in the fandom.

Wow.. I didn't check the last post since I made a brief comment, I didn't realize how much drama it stirred up.. Definitely worth a few lulz.

Glad it got sorted out at least. The internet really is serious business when fights break out over an illustrated dog penis :/
Jun. 7th, 2007 06:47 pm (UTC)
Just as an FYI, Zippo is in fact, a He. He's hung out with us at our place over a weekend, I've met him.

That said, yes, I agree he was out of line, and he tends to be that way-there are times when he can be decent, though.

No, there are NOT times when he can be decent. Plz to be seeing:

Yay, its over with!
Jun. 7th, 2007 08:40 pm (UTC)
....holy flipping drama! *eyes previous post*
Jun. 13th, 2007 03:51 am (UTC)
Well, looks like any sided opinion will be met with ire, so... I guess i'll just ready myself to counter-harm Zippo if "it" ever comes and destroys my patience in record time.

But i want to know why Canis "The Anus" Claxis is still roaming free, when he's basically a 55-year old version of Zippo?

Hmmmmm, Zippo is banned from the forums, but it's furaffinity page was still getting updated before FA went down recently
