Tech Round Up August 20th 2021 – OnlyFans changes and lies,

UPDATE: THEY HAVE REVERSED THE DECISION BECAUSE IT WAS A PUBLICITY STUNT APPARENTLY

OnlyFans now no longer allows “explicit adult content” whatever that may mean? Here’s the official statement, and here it is in plain text, as some prefer.

A few recent article titles to get you up to speed on the backlash:

“Sex workers who earn thousands on OnlyFans say it’s unclear how the company will enforce its ‘disgusting’ porn ban — and some may leave the platform because of it”

“OnlyFans bans sexually explicit content to appease banks and payment services”

(Also, entirely not in the news, and actually VERY SUSPICIOUSLY HIDDEN MOSTLY OnlyFans is launching a YouTube of their own, with NO PLANS TO MONETIZE, and NO ADS? What the FUCK is going on over there? We are being destroyed with ads, and most of the battle is trying to decide how much of your life to want to sign away when the iPhone turns on and you click agree, or you have to stop sites from tracking you SO MUCH that it’s built into the OS now, pissing off Facebook, which relies on selling ALL of your data, movements, voice, friends list, to make more money. Now this ad free monetize free service comes from an established company with their own server farms, with the ability to destroy Vimeo and other’s already being destroyed by Twitch which comes at a great time, and may buffer some of the fall  explain below, check that out here [no spam, no ads], but back on topic…

So no more SEXUALLY EXPLICIT MATERIAL? What does that mean? No one knows. Not even OnlyFans I suspect.

Ok, so we know sex, masturbation, and probably sucking a dildo are all out, both in video, and picture form, and we know that regular nude, burlesque, and what most people would call ‘tasteful’ like Michelangelo’s David will be allowed. Unfortunately this is a dizaster for everyone, including non nude models, and content creators all over the world, and of every kind. I like to get to the point:

OnlyFans was specifically founded, and succeeded on nudity, and pornography. Playboy tried to get rid of nudity once, and the magazine fell entirely to 0 new subscribers and losing from their larger base, by almost 80% and I think that’s due to the fact that they reversed SO QUICKLY. Had they given it a year, I’m sure re-subscribers would have fallen to almost non existent as well. Playboy has never been about the tits, and always into the tits at the same time. People could get “better” cheaper smut with much dirtier camera angles, and 100 pics per magazine instead of 20 just by moving 2 magazines over to Penthouse, or Hustler.

However simple, and however “lacking” Playboy was, that brief bit of nudity, and the nostalgia of “finding dad’s old Playboys” come back to mental images of an area where 5-10 magazines from the basement were a fun hiding spot time to be away from parents. It has a feeling, a moment, a smell of the pages, and the inevitable CENTERFOLD of a girl who was 50% real girl size in 3 bent panels for you to view, in all her basic nude glory, without a single distasteful image, and that’s almost OBJECTIVELY spoken.

You probably see where I am going with this. OnlyFans has been here 5 years, since 2021.

[IC Media Direct] – Reputation Management Service – Links and Reviews Removal – }Sean’s True Review]

IC MEDIA DIRECT REVIEW 2021I needed some help with dealing with some negative review in Google, and I had heard about ICMediaDIrect. About 5 years ago, I hired them to help me handle it, and they have not only ruined the work I had put it, but they did weird, unnecessary things like submitting weird Google forms it looks like to trick Google into thinking something else (which works, but I don’t do it, I am better than that. So I gave them about 6 months before I collected my data, and I can safely say I paid over $10,000 for the service that proHow-to-Remove-Google-Reviews-–-Is-it-Possible_-Copy@3x-2048x1195vided little to no help with my situation.

Founded in what looks to be 2002 if the domain registration is any sign of it. They look very professional, the video is custom, and the pricing is indicative of having the skills of someone or a group of people who are serious about getting links in Google “removed’ so to speak.

Even further so, they say they DO NOT remove links, and that’s because anyone who DOES remove links, is LYING. Google rule  #22 : IF it’s the the internet, we can index if, and if you want it down, take it off the internet. Otherwise fuck off.

Aanyway, I was elated to see they offered a service to help me with Google ad after speaking with them. They did not help, and cost me a lot.

Also, I don’t think they knew they were dealing with a Slackware age hacker, from back when we were bored enough to hack ANYTHING with fear of going to jail, in 1998-2003.remove-bad-google-reviews

I hired them again, much more than $10,000 this time, and they were to remove 2 links at the tippity top, and move them off of page 1.

6 months, and over $20,000 later, I can safely say this company is worth 1 out of 5 stars. Some technical expertise, but not much. This is why I want people to compare my competitors. I am obviously advertising a bit here, but let’s be honest. I’ll find some company, and keep evaluating their skills, so you don’t have to.

 

Disclaimer I cannot be paid for good or bad reviews, this is a hobby I started when I realized people needed it. 🙂
