My decision on the lemons being removed:After successfully raging for most of the day, breaking many pencils in half, and ranting/screaming to a considerable amount of people about the wealth of lemons being reported and deleted, I have come to this conclusion:
We can't let this get to us.
It's either the work of someone incredibly jealous of the success of lemons, a complete prude, an absolutely horrendous troll, or dA just going through and purging what they see fit. I'm sure that if it's the first three of those options, they are seeing our reactions and having an absolute blast about how badly they have affected us.
My earlier journal was immature and I should have handled the discovery of so many of my pieces being deleted much better. However, I am upset as hell, because I put heartfelt emotions in my work--lemons or not. To me...fanfiction and reader inserts are where I can be in a fantasy world to escape the pains of reality. I can pretend I know what it's like to be in love. I can pretend that the ones I'm "in love"
An Investigation: All of you are suspects.You all remember that contest I held back in July? And that I released the contest results? Yes, I held a lemon contest and posted the results. All of the winning entries in the contest was deleted. It wasn't just deleted, it was reported. Yes, reported. Almost all of the entries was reported by someone. *GydroZMaa noticed the suspicion. She told me about it, and now I'm a little upset about this. Not a little, I'm more likely VERY upset.An Investigation: All of you are suspects.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
*GydroZMaa also told me that the deletion of her story was right after I posted the contest results on October 27, 2012. That's just too obvious. Someone is behind all of the reports. All of the entries were reported for pornographic content, and I'm terribly sorry that had happen to you. Most of this chaos is my fault. When I announced the contest, a commenter warned me that dA has rules about posting stuff with pornographic content. I told her that was a stupid rule, and she agree with me. Fanfiction also had the same rules. She never
I think I just cracked the case.Well, as most of us already know, lemons are being deleted left and right.I think I just cracked the case.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
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: :faq251:
Edit: Hey guys, I made a Lunaescence: http://www.lunaescence.com/fics/viewuser.php?uid=27792
I need to know something...Like many of the journals have stated, there has been a domino effect of lemons being taken down. The furthest I remember was when it started with the entries of ~xCreativePoppet's shower lemon contest. At first it was only the winners and honorable mentions that were reported. Soon, after posting journals pointing out that there was someone who might have been a sore loser, more lemons started to get reported.I need to know something...6 months ago in Personal More Like This
There's been some suspicions as to whether or not ~ev0net was the one behind it, but it's not. Don't bash the person for the lemons. That user is reporting those who post things without permission such as preview pictures or motivational posters. As that person specified in addition to dA's own policies, crediting does not mean getting permission. Lots of people don't even credit the artist so I can understand where that person is coming from. That user even said he/she doesn't report lemons.
I don't know who the person is, but I still feel that it has a strong connection

It's not just me eather. Lemon Contest winners also had their stories deleted.
Why have a Sexual Content Warning option if they just remove it?
DA can have PHOTOS of naked women with out the Sexual Content Waring on them and they get called Art and not porn?!
Also, Fix your settings. The Warnings don't work if you allow that to be seen without the warning.
Aperantly it's this guy: http://ev0net.deviantart.com/
Who has been reporting the lemons.
Turns out: http://ev0net.deviantart.com/ Is just a hippo reporting people for using others images.
