    Those of us that have ever worked in the service business...

    ...have always had some choice phrases to say to our more... complicated customers. But we don't say it, because it would probably get us in trouble.

    So, without spilling the story behind it to keep it confidential and such, I invite you to say exactly what you've wanted to say. Just write it in the comment section, as if you were saying it to their face.

    Only things:

    Make it a creative one. Anyone can go and say: F**k you! You must have thought something better than that!

    And second, no personal info, no names, no companies mentioned, nothing that can be traced to a point of origin. Just say the exact thing you choked back.

    I'll start.

If you have clicked on the "View Mature" check box, certain things need to be made clear.

The first of which is, you will end up with clop (aka porn) in your front page and on the Featured Box. The reason is the aforementioned check box. It is an agreement if you will. By you clicking it with your precious little hooves, claws, hands, tentacles or other appendages, it immediately forms a sort of contract: you are, basically, accepting that you are an adult and old enough to view or not view the material that will pop up.

I can assure you, that just like the teen and everyone ratings, most of it is not going to be well-written, or even thought out at all. But that is a common risk with all things in the internet.

So, you clicked on "View Mature". That means that you are discerning enough to know what you like and what you don't. It implies that you are of sufficient mental growth and understanding to be above whining when the stuff you don't like comes up.

While it is certainly hard to find stories that incorporate sex in a believable and cohesive sense, you, as an adult, should not be surprised to find substandard work in a place that's open to literally everyone to post provided they follow very simple rules and don't exceed the willingness of the moderators/administrators to put up with.

By declaring yourself an adult, you also indicate your capacity to understand not only site-rules, but also the ability to read descriptions and tags. Such as "Sex", indicative of a story containing intercourse of varying levels of explicitness; or "Gore" which points out that the story in question is indubitably going to contain explicit imagery of innards, blood and general butchery.

Having established that, as an adult, recognizing these basic premises of adulthood stature, I will remind you that whining, emailing, pming, posting comments in unwanted places and generally acting like a child because "OMG there is clop in a site where the vast majority of users is compromised of 15-20 year old teenagers and men" is NOT acting like an adult.

In other words, kid, if you can't handle it, simply un-check the damned box. Most likely, you won't find what you're looking for there anyway.

Ah may not be too well versed on finer intricacies of modern vernacular, but Ah do imagin' that "Burn" is the correct word ta' use here.

i am a filly, and i dont care what i read if i dont like it i leave it alone if i like it and it is for adults i will still read it but i wont read it in front of my parents :rainbowkiss:

#11 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

It truly is annoying when people that can't handle the fact that there is clopping, whine about it showing in their front page.

Clopfics are actually fun to read. Just no need to take them too seriously.

E: Oh yeah... and what I think adult means, is that you can think and act like one. Just what you said.

#12 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Yes, EXCELLENT :rainbowdetermined2:

#13 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Am I understanding this correctly that you don't actually need to be a legal adult (over 18) to declare yourself an adult on this website?

#15 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Somehow, I doubt this will get people to shut up.

#16 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

These are not the clopfics you are looking for...

#17 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Dude, so true. :rainbowlaugh: I uncheck that box every so often to see what is featured that isn't rated Mature.

Usually it's all crap either way. :derpytongue2:

#18 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

But I don't wanna click a box! I wanna WHIIIIIIIIINE INCESSANTLY!

:unsuresweetie:

This is because of IJAB, isn't it? People still haven't stopped talking about him leaving. Seriously, he's complaining about bad stories being on a fan fiction site where literally anyone can post nearly whatever they want? If he just ignored that crap then problem solved!

#24 · 98w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

This blog exhibits what many people lack.

Common sense.

#25 · 98w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT. Sorry... all the complaining has been eating away my patience for a while. I get it. Clop isn't for everyone. But why do you have to make a scene? Thanks for this, Wanderer. People really need to calm down and think sometimes. Maybe this will stop at least some of the commotion that's been going on. Thanks again. :ajsmug:

#26 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Has this been a problem?  I'm underaged but I I see something I just ignore it, I've seen it all before and I know I'm not interested.  They must be new to the internet in general.

#27 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Okay, now I'm curious.  What inspired this?  Not that I don't agree with you, I figured out everything you just said the first moment I saw the 'View Mature' box.

#28 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

I am, myself, put off by sexual (or even romantic, as I'm an aromantic asexual and cannot relate to either comfortably) themes and activity in fiction, and it causes me to flinch when I see it mixed with ponies, because I cannot connect the two very well. I do the one thing that's sure to work, and that is... wait for it... avoiding it! That's right, if you don't want to see the latest second-person clopfic in the featured box and lose your faith in humanity as a whole (again), keep the damn box unchecked and you don't have to worry about it, as our colleague Wanderer D has said here. I don't whine about it, am underaged, and I can ignore it, like Armalite. If people really want to associate such things with our precious little ponies, be my guest, because it's not going to hurt me or anyone else, and that's what matters.

#29 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549402 There's an insane amount of bitching about clop/gore on the site from people that apparently don't know how to either unclick the 'show mature' box or how to ignore the flagrant 'sex' or 'gore' tags.

#30 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Yah. Good thing you wrote this.

Unfortunatelly, it changes nothing :pinkiecrazy: There will still be those who wil whine for the sake of whining or boosting their pubescent ego

#31 · 98w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

>>549391

1) Jesus does not exist, and if he did he was an ordinary man who was stoned off his ass.

2) I do not clop to ponies. At least not pictures of ponies anyway.

#32 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549412 That's really stupid.  I guess people check the mature box to see fics that have light gore, but bitch when they find something that's too gory.    

#34 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

What is the limit for tagging something as mature? I recall knighty telling us that anything including drug use, strong violence, adult language or innuendo needs to be tagged as mature. I would hate to lose all that.

#35 · 98w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

This. This man here. This man knows what he's on about.:moustache:

#36 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

I'm upset that people are upset about something they should know better than to be upset about. :pinkiesick:

#37 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

As an EqD pre-reader... THANK YOU!

#38 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

And as even more new-type news....

THIS!!!

#39 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

It's sad that so many peeps are that immature... though personally, since not all M-rated shit is clop, perhaps a second view checkbox, "View Explicit", or a specialized [Clop] tag, is in order? It would A) reduce the whiners and B) Please those that aren't into that stuff but quietly accept their existence.

#40 · 98w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

It pains me that something like this post actually has to be said. Where is common sense these days?

>>549425 Jesus thinks you may need to take a chill pill.

He told me just now.

Hi Jesus!

#41 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

I don't complain about clop. I complain about bad clop. Just as much as I complain about HiE, self-insert alicorn OCs and anything else I find repulsive.

Seriously. The amount of rape fics is off the charts. This is awful.

If anything, I can't wait for the tag system where I'll be able to completely ignore that shit.

#43 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549471

You have a Tulpa named Jesus? Nice work bro, I don't have the sheer force of will to make one. I'm far too lazy.

Care to share your secrets?

#44 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

I can't even find where this button is, can someone please point it out?

#45 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549519 The 'View mature' filter is located in the drop-down menu under your profile name.

#46 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

Uh.

What brought this on? Even as a person who dislikes clop pretty intensely, I'm confused. I just keep the "Mature" box unchecked, even though I'm old enough to look at all the fucked-up porn I want (and frequently do, just not of ponies), and all is well.

Seriously, I've seen a few blogs about some hullabaloo over clop, but not what incited it. What's going on here?

#47 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549461

This, though, sounds like a good idea. In addition, if you get linked to a story which is blocked by the filter, there is currently no way of knowing why. Is it gore or... other... reason.

Ahem.

But in general I love the mature filter; generally it works very well. Most of the time, I can pretend that... such things do not exist.

#48 · 98w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

In other words, kid, if you can't handle it, simply un-check the damned box. Most likely, you won't find what you're looking for there anyway.

I hate when people make this argument. It's just so ignorant. Not everything that is Mature has clop or gore. I'll point you over here. There is no excessive gore that requires a gore tag nor is there any sex at all. However, it is a very mature story and thus deserves the tag.

So please, don't tell me I can just turn off the tag to avoid the clop. If I do so, I miss out on a lot of well-told stories that are mature without the sex or gore.

"OMG there is clop in a site where the vast majority of users is compromised of 15-20 year old teenagers and men"

While some people have been incredibly childish in their reactions to the clop, they do have a point if you actually take the time to think about it.

Take a look at the featured box. Many times, you will find a fic in there that is nothing but sex. It's a porno, but written down. Now tell me again how that's a story? I was under the impression that the featured box was for stories, not pornos.

I came here to read. If I wanted to jack off, I'd go watch porn.

Additionally, is it wrong to express disappointment in the userbase? That they're spending all their time jacking off to ponies? I, for one, find that quite disappointing. That people give in to their carnal desires so easily...

#49 · 98w, 6d ago · · ·

>>549447 Aren't you supposed to remain anonymous?

#50 · 98w, 6d ago · · 1 ·

I'll start by saying that I am not a clopper, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a story just because it has sex in it.

I've honestly never understood why people care so much about clop.

If I don't like certain type of story, (HiE or Gore for me personally) I just ignore it.

You don't see me complaining all the time about HiE fics though, I don't waste my time complaining about other people's opinions.

Whatever happened to Love and Tolerate?
