This post seems like a good reminder for everyone that people can see who upvoted, downvoted, and boosted any post and comment by clicking "more" and "activity".

Do with this information as you will.

It's been a conversation lately on kbin.social. I imagine our kbin.social administrator will address it. He's been pretty on top of things

turn_to_follow,

What exactly is such a feature supposed to do, other than making it easier to try to dig through someone's history to 'win' an argument or discredit users?

Seems dumb.

MagicalVagina,

Between this and the requirement for email address at registration I find the lack of privacy on kbin/fediverse a bit curious. I don't see why such a feature brings value, but at the same time I guess it's more for a technical reason. The list of users who upvoted need to be saved anyway and as it's decentralized anyway anyone can read it. Just wished it was hashed instead, or replaced by some digital signature.

I'm only guessing, but I assume email is likely to help cut down on spam bots. Maybe? (Someone do tell me if that's wrong. I wouldn't mind learning something!)

I know some users here say seeing who upvotes promotes transparency. Maybe you're less likely to upvote some hatespeech if you're attached to it and not doing so anonymously. Which then means it gets less traction and the user feels less welcome. Which curbs it.

But then privacy is important, too. There's nothing wrong with me going to the adult store and buying a gimp suit for myself with the Anal Blaster Master 3000: Destroyer of Rims vibrating dildo pack. But I also don't need my neighbors or family to know. Just like I don't need people to know I upvoted that really hot video of a man smearing chunky peanut butter on his incredibly hairy chest as a girl tries to lick it off.

I'm sticking around for now and seeing if things either change (like if the users for upvoted etc get hashed or something for example) and how things end up feeling in the long run with or without those changes.

ViridianNott,

Reddit is inevitably going to reign in porn use as part of the IPO rollout… that’ll be the day the site truly dies

Yep happened to similar services in the past too.

aeternum,

tumblr, anyone?

DannyBoy,

@stephfinitely That's one of the few things that I never understood about people (users/developers) on the fediverse.

They want the fediverse to be successful, but they don't want to make it "interesting" to the common folk.
People want adult content and something that simply works. Most of the platforms on the fediverse have serious issues of UI/UX, lack of good mobile apps and a simple on boarding experience.

The fediverse needs to stop being so puritan.

Aesthesiaphilia,

Amen. Neo puritanism is the most confusing thing about the modern world to me. Sex and sexuality are Good, in a moral sense. Repression is Bad. In the last decade or two, we've been going backwards.

DannyBoy,

@Aesthesiaphilia @stephfinitely People are like "ew porn I don't wanna have that in my timelime".

Well boys n girls I have news for you.
There's a button on Mastodon, Lemmy and Kbin that allows you to block other instances that show content that you or I may not like.

I have like 3 instances that I've blocked.
Due to their weird porn content (even I have my limits).

SylvieSuccubus,

The weird dichotomy of pro sex workers actual rights/unwillingness to have porn vs the ‘savior’ mentality/willingness to have porn is lowkey one of the most frustrating things about discourse these days to me. I’ve been long distance for a year, I just wanna keep exchanging porn with my goddamn boyfriend 🥲

DannyBoy, (edited )

@SylvieSuccubus @stephfinitely @Aesthesiaphilia Also is worth noting that countries like The Netherlands and Australia have rights for sex workers and their job is also legal and covered by health insurance.

This also helped to reduce human trafficking, STDS, and the general opinion about sex workers.
Also remember that in case of Australia being a pimp is also illegal which helps women sex workers into not getting part of their profit taken away or getting any physical abuse.

It's a lot easier to have a blanket porn ban to deal with actually moderating porn. And nobody wants to host revenge porn and child porn on their server

50gp,

the "let others handle it" approach

and then just block any instances that allows too sketchy content

@stephfinitely https://lemmynsfw.com/ seems like the place for porn on the fediverse, at least for lemmy.

While I appreciate information. I wasn't looking for porn. Was just making a observation.

More for other users reading this than you.

Caboose12000,

I still don't know what kbin is and at this point I'm too afraid to ask

Otome-chan,
Otome-chan avatar

kbin is like lemmy but a bit different. lemmy users and kbin users can interact and see each other's posts.

CynAq,

Let me play the grammar (linguistics? I don't know) police here and seal the deal for kbin's "here to stay"ness...

It's per se, not per say.

DarkThoughts,

Some of them have been nothing but spam though. I don't mind porn or other erotic content, but it shouldn't be random bullshit that gets posted within 1-2 minutes by the same account.

stephfinitely,
stephfinitely avatar

I'm not going to lie I haven't looked at any of it. I have nothing against porn per say but it's not why I'm on Kbin. I really just thought it was funny how much I was starting to see and that then reminded me of how porn is usually a indicator of what type of technology will become popular.

ScrubAmtiskaw,

The pervs have spoken. The lewd mags have been lit! Boners call for aid!

stinkypoopsalot,

There is porn here? I won't believe you unless i see it for myself...

...got a link? ;o)

Aesthesiaphilia,

Search gonewild@lemmynsfw.com

By default, your account has "Hide adult content" on. In your Settings page:

https://kbin.social/settings/general

...you want to uncheck "Hide adult content" if you want to see it.

It’s certainly an odd metric but it is a true one. Sex sells I guess.

Hopefully the porn bots will stay on Reddit.

starlinguk,
starlinguk avatar

I'd hoped porn stayed on Reddit. I unsubscribed or blocked everything remotely related to it. Porn is far too closely related to abuse and human trafficking.

Aesthesiaphilia,

Mainstream porn yes. Amateur (real amateur), not really. If you remove the profit motive, you won't get exploitative things.

Yeah, I’m watching to see if some of my favorites start posting here. Starry Fawn As a example.

BaroqueInMind,

Amateur porn being posted here similar to how it was on /r/gonewild will be the true indicator of whether the community chose this site over others.

slicedcheesegremlin,
slicedcheesegremlin avatar

Yeah, the real metric is that none of them are the onlyfans spammers, but the real content creators (even nsfw ones).

Aesthesiaphilia,

There's been some discussion about it on gonewild@lemmynsfw.com, and the users seem to be in favor of banning anyone who does any sort of selling, even if it's just in their profile. I think that's the only way to combat it.

Balssh,

I don't really understand why banning someone who sells NSFW (OF for example) without spamming it is a thing.

Aesthesiaphilia,

Because there's a thin and blurry line between "I like to post, and also happen to have an OF" and "I have this account solely to drum up business for my OF by pretending to actually enjoy posting". And inevitably if you open that door, sellers will push it. Anyone who used to hang out on nsfw subreddits saw it. Either you ban all sellers, or they drastically lower the quality.

(one notable exception being text based subs like nsfwpenpals or askredditafterdark)
