"Why was this pic deleted?"

Oct 27, 2021 - permalink

Crying woe isn’t really helpful. As Chainer said it would be vastly more helpful if you and others reported pics that you thought toed or crossed a line when you see them uploaded. There’s like a bajillion images on this site and not enough days in our lives to make 1v1 comparisons of them all. That’s why there’s a report button.

What do you think I did above? You did it with hypocrisy on my part. I have reported and shown photos that should not be on this site. Since you deleted the post I was posting.

As I stated in my original post:

this is the place to ask what happened to specific images, and not a discussion of why images in general get removed

If you choose to continue getting hung up over one picture, that's on you. There is no conspiracy that mods are targeting your images. Read Chainer's response one more time if you haven't already, and get on with your life. This will not be discussed any further here.

You can delete my posts and messages... You know better, good luck.

The first and last are blacklisted, the middle one has the reason "Sean Nelson (watermark removed)".

It would probably be a good idea to add an optional field to the batch delete interface for a removal reason.

I know there's always a risk when I upload a Sean Nelson / HerBiceps pic, but I still regret being the policy being fuzzy here.

was that the one of Alyssa Kiessling? im assuming so because the instagram link takes me to a blocked account (LMAO)

as an aside i'm wondering if we can OK posts that come from someone's social, as long as a link is provided to prove it isn't a screencap from one of the VODs

What have you done to piss off Alyssa? 😀

It's her, yes. She posted this pic on her own account, and it has 'Photo by Sean Nelson' in it, so it's certainly not a screencap.

Being respectful to copyright owners is better than trying to make a point with a lawyer. Lawyers win every time, while everyone else loses.

When the risk of keeping a photo is unnecessarily high, even if in the grey zone, then better remove.

But Chainer once said:

With HerBiceps specifically, we have a little leeway because they have authorized us to post small samples of their work (and certainly images that are already available for free on model instagrams would qualify).

So I would say the risk is not 'unnecessarily high', even more because the pic was posted on Alyssa's Instagram.

@ElsieGuen fair enough for that context. I don’t follow the instagram profiles, and I don’t know about the other mods, so there will be cases where will be harsher than necessary, because we can’t keep track of all the finer details.

So could we say the Alyssa Kiessling pic probably should not have been deleted?

I restored it. Taking Chainer's quote into context, and the fact that Elsie linked to the source (IG post) it came from, I see no reason to keep it off the site. It was a popular image as well.

Thanks, I appreciate it!
