Long Time No See, Sta.sh!

Journal Entry: Sat May 3, 2014, 1:40 AM
Heeeey everyone!

Greetings from TechCrunch Disrupt NY

Here's my current situation: shortly after I posted my last journal about CSS-DYK, my school blocked Sta.sh for "porngraphy" by the Barracuda Web Filter. And since Starbucks, the local library, and local government buildings use the exact same filter, Sta.sh is also blocked there as well :P (And no, I don't have reliable internet at home.) This pretty much blocked most of deviantART's submission process and for a while I couldn't submit art, journals, or access Muro. I've contacted the helpdesk and there is nothing they can do about it, although they fixed the submit process so that it doesn't use assets/saves from Sta.sh. I still can't access the Journal Editor except for the rare occasion that I find myself out of town, which drives me crazy since I have a lot of ideas that I can't .

I'm still in the loop about everything, and I'll still be on deviantART to answer your questions, but be aware that I won't be able to submit any journals until deviantART's journal editor at me.deviantart.com/journal/?edi… doesn't use asset/saves from the Sta.sh doamin.

Journals shouldn't determine whether a deviant is active on deviantART, but since a lot of my work on dA is done through journals, I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here.

Thanks for being awesome,
LabLayers 

It's been forever :(

It's simple. Someone submitted porno to sta.sh, and either the system automatically detected it via keywords or whatever, or someone reported it to the company doing the blocking and asked for it to be blocked. Depends on the system being used.
