Ah, the law of inertia. Yup, even stronger than the law of gravity.  Grin

FA has other problems as well in my opinion, but you've seen that. Coders and admins who are so wet behind the ears they are dripping don't make for a very hospitable site either.

Bear in mind they're all working on a volunteer basis, and finding reliable volunteers in this fandom, or indeed anywhere in humanity, is difficult at best.   Roll Eyes  Considering how many members they have, how much activity, and how many fires they have to put out, I think they do pretty well, but then, I haven't run into any major technical issues with my use of the site so far, so...  *shrug*

I admit, I fall into the category of willing but unable. I have a successful but demanding career and very active lifestyle. There are still chores to be done and time to dedicate to writing.  Little remains for forums at all.

I am also a little reluctant to post more of my writing because I have been warned off by several well intentioned acquaintances.  I have heard publishers say that if a work has been presented in an open forum it is no longer considered "original". They feel that if a work has been presented publically the target audience will not buy it because they already got it for free. It cuts into their profit margins. I am not sure how true it is, but it certainly is a discouragement.  If an agent or publisher does a websearch and finds my stories, will that sink my chances of being published?

With respect to the porn issue; it took me over a year to find an artist/illustrator who shuns porn. I am developing a website for my writing and want to put a link to the illustrator in it.  My family (including nieces and nephews) will likely want to explore a little and I feel a need to be careful where I point them.   

I am an open furry and have been well recieved in general, but there are places I wouldn't want to be associated with. Or for the editors out there: ...with which I do not care to be associated. :-)

There is no rule in the English language which states that a sentence can't end with a preposition. While it's often sound advice and can make for clearer, more pleasing sentences, there are many instances where the application of such a rule is simply unwieldy. The rule originated by advice from one John Dryden in 1672; Winston Churchill famously rebutted an editor who'd applied said rule to the corrections of one of Churchill's speeches with this:

"This is the kind of shoddy editing, up with which, I shall not put."
