I think I just cracked the case.

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 8, 2012, 5:22 PM


Well, as most of us already know, lemons are being deleted left and right.

I think I just found out why.

"A literary work may not detail graphic or explicit sexual intercourse. This includes descriptions of sexual penetration, oral to genital contact, genital to anal contact, oral to anal contact and may also include certain types of genital to genital contact and oral to breast contact.

This prohibition extends to descriptions of bodily fluids associated with sexual acts such as semen and vaginal lubricants."


I hate to say, but most lemons violate that particular policy...

And just to clarify, I was definitely not the one reporting the lemons. I enjoy them just as much as the next Hetalian.

I am merely stating the reason why I think they were taken down.

Just in case you guys don't want to take my word for it, here's the link to the F.A.Q. that I quoted this from: FAQ #251: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic literature'; what do you consider this to be?

Edit: Hey guys, I made a Lunaescence: www.lunaescence.com/fics/viewu…

All this seems pretty crazy! I mean, I don't put up Hetalia fanfiction, but I see all these journals about works being taken down popping up all over the place.

But I don't think it's a single reporter out there because once I reported a picture once for being just COMPLETELY unreasonably vulgar and it STILL hasn't been taken down like half a year later. Through that and some discussion, I learned that dA doesn't pay attention to single reporters. It has to be a whole swarm OR an actual admin is snooping through and deleting. Or something like that.

WHile I think the rules have something to do with it the rate and simple targeting of only Hetalia fanfics bothers me and so suddenly...like why not ealier? I have never heard of anybody reporting lemons like this(not that I've been on DA for long) so I'm just not sure.....I dont read them but this is a tad over the top even for a snitch...

I'm glad they're being taken down, honestly.

I think the mature things should be kept on Fanfiction.net or any other website that allows such content.

Ah, really?

Fanfiction.net has purged pretty much all M-rated material..

In this case they should delete all the pictures of genitals as well. I'd much rather read a well-written lemon than have to look at someone's poorly lit genitals any day.

They might as well be with people who have been posting them because they want to show off their bits to strangers instead in the name of art. I'm more talking about the people who post their junk and give it a description/title along the lines of, "don't you want this," sort of thing. I know they aren't against the rules, but with lemons your own mind decides what pictures you see.

I just find words more classy than people basically posting porn for the sake of people giving them sexual comments.

No one listens to that rule though, and I think the dA admins know it. As much as they wish it wouldn't happen, people do write/draw stuff about sex. And there's not much they can do.
But judging from what I've seen, someone is definitely being a little snitch and reporting all these Hetalia writers to the moderators :/

Well, lemons have been around for like...EVER. Yes, they go against the rules, but there are GROUPS for this stuff. And I think most groups have to be approved by SOME admin, so somebody in charge has to have known about this before these reports started.

It just seems suspicious that this is happening so suddenly, and at such a huge rate.

I really liked lemons...They were awesome.
I think it's unfair how you can be a nude artist, nothing happens...
But for literature it's so unfair!!
I think the lemon chapters can me upload to fanfiction.net
And just link in the description the lemon part...

No, fanfiction.net has done a supreme purge of M-rated content. I really recommend Lunaescence. According to what I've heard, they're pretty laid-back about M rated stuff.

no kidding, me too. This brings me to worry over people who are scared, they shouldn't. Be proud to be a pervreted Otaku! Why do this? I mean, if France (vomits alittle) was doing these, I know he would be crusing off deviantART in french saying how unfair that your taking down a work of art...which, lemons are.

At least their not real life depictions of pornographic subject matter, unlike some photographs that are posted on this website.
