Dogpatch Press Ending?

Looks like Dogpatch Press has finally come to an end. In a recent post HERE 

Patch O’Furr or what alias they go by tries to put a spin on recent events when it came out that they both support cub porn and is a Nazi. Although those posts are no longer on Twitter they had been saved and can easily be found. So despite the article saying otherwise, Dogpatch Press Owner/ Operator got caught by his own words and now is facing the consequences. Having no choice to possibly end Dogpatch Press forever.

Being in public about your thoughts and feelings can get you in to a lot of trouble. I am very aware of this fact given all the C&Ds and threats of legal action that has been made towards yours truly over the years.

Maybe I take more risks but it has taught me really how far can you go. But lucky for me I know my limits and I am honest with my readers.

I hate anyone who claims they are a Nazi, and that Cub Porn creeps me out and I agree it’s gateway to child porn.

Considering all the allegations made at Dogpatch Press over the years including stealing articles and commentaries from other blogs including this one. Maybe it is just Karma catching up with Dogpatch’s Owner, you never mess with karma period.

The Ursa Major Awards

I almost forgot that the Ursa Major Awards has posted a list of Nominees which can be found HERE 

I was thinking of Nominating myself until I found out the last date for entry expired 6 days ago. If your thinking “How on earth could they nominate himself? After really looking into how the Ursa Major Awards actually works…it seems they operate more like Wikipedia than anything else. Yes, you can make a suggestion whom you like to see Nominated. But when Voting comes around, it’s more a popularity contest, as in the one who gets the most votes WIN.

I am not bashing Ursa Major just stating the facts. It’s like their voting system. They claim it’s guaranteed to prevent people from voting multiple times. I don’t claim to be a computer expert but even I saw ways around this.

Then there is Ursa Major itself, how many who are actually reading these words has ever hear about it or let alone has been to their site. When I was at MFF 2018 I did my own informal poll and the results were: Unless you were involved in publishing or am a hardcore or published author you have never heard about them. I could not find a single person outside of writing and blogs that has even heard of Ursa Major Awards, let alone voted on their site.

Tumblr’s Secret Revealed

If you have been following me for a while, you know I reblog my posts equally on various sites. Namely Twitter and G+ and yes Tumblr and I am also aware of how has put a halt to adult theme posts. If you wonder how they are doing this look no further as I recently discovered the answer.

They are using software to track adult posts down on their site. The software isn’t far from accurate. The truth is it’s quite faulty, although I will admit it did track down some adult posts I did make. Others were beyond explanation, for example why were some YouTube videos Flagged? Especially those from the Gateway FurMeet. I am not joking every single one of those videos I posted were flagged, and no nothing adult could be even found on those videos or YouTube would of Flagged them. Also some comic ones admit are from the Bizarro comic which I sometimes post.

In short I could of appealed but I didn’t. Reason why is simple my main posts are here and safe and if anyone on Tumblr sees this be sure to check out my main site for anything more adult.

The Hunt for Furry Times Dot Com

Back when I changed the name of this blog fro Yiffy Times to Furry Times I always wanted to go with Furry Times Dot Com and not Dot Net which I finally settled on. But I have always been curious what was Furry Times Dot Com anyway?

I learned using Domain Tools

I learned that the site got in start in 2011, so that is where I began looking on Archive.org.

It seems a site was under construction as earily as 2004/05 there even was a Live Journal page that has long since vanished.

Then again in 2008/09

But finally by June 2, 2012

We get this

Turns out it actually was a animal site that lasted until Dec 2012.

Then Live Domain Auctioneers bought the site has owned it ever since, and currently wants just under $1,000. Now that their hold over the site will soon end as it turns out. I have no plans on changing. But it was interesting checking out the history of Furry Times.

Dogpatch Press is Pro Cub Porn

The proof is in the links

Proof #1

Proof #2

Is this the end of Dogpatch Press? Many in the fandom believe cub porn is not unlike child porn, and unbelievably cub porn is legal. But I will go on record saying I do not support cub porn in any way shape or form. You will never see CP on this news blog ever. But not so much on Dogpatch Press, all it takes is a simple internet search via Google, Bing or even Duck Duck Go and you will find images of CP on Dogpatch Press.

I find it interesting that Dogpatch’s owner has kept their name private when mine is well known. I make it no secret you can find me on Wikifur and yes that is my real name. Meanwhile, Patch O’Furr or what another fursona they use has kept their real name private and has only once come out during a recent legal issue. What are they hiding? is this AKA Patch O’Furr is on some watch list? I don’t know, and I won’t even guess.

It really doesn’t matter which fandom or group you happen to belong the safety of children have become a real HUGE Deal of late. It has gotten so bad that no matter which group you belong to their is a Code of Conduct when it comes to Children and yes I am talking about anyone under the legal age of 18. I know Teens don’t consider themselves kids, that is why Sexting can send you to prison on a pedophile charge if your not careful.

I strongly believe Kids should be Kids as long as possible, and that they should not be exposed to sex until they are of LEGAL age. I know that is a bit old fashion and yes I was a teen myself, and I saw those who would later be working in the sex trade. But really that is another issue.

Cub Porn is wrong, it’s imagery is just plain sickening. I believe it is a gateway to pedophilia.

Will Dogpatch Press survive this that is up to it’s readers. I say if you support “ewww’ CP then continue to check them out. Otherwise check other news sites including Furry Times.

OUR PRESENT SITUATION !

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans. Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans. Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term. Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live. For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment. And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects. We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop. Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message. Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the Citizens of the United States …” This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party. Congressional Reform Act of 2017 1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office. And, no more perks go with them. 2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose. 3. Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as ALL Americans do. 4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. 5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. 6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people (i.e. NO MORE INSIDER TRADING!!!). 7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress made all these contracts by and for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor and privledge NOT a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work … not get all kinds of freebies. Just hold your finger down then hit forward and send it to everyone you know. Let’s help get the country straightened out.Chat Conversation EndType a message…

Mary Poppins Returns

I am not surprised Mary Poppins Return has done so well, appealing as it does to kids. But you might of noticed this is a commentary, and not a review. The reasons why are personal and I feel they need to be shared.

I am not young, I in fact call myself a Greymuzzle. Another fact the original Mary Poppins was one of the very first films I saw as a child, and it was the very last film I saw in the theater with my own mother before she died. So any mention of Mary Poppins is real personal and catch me in the right mood and I might start crying about it. So as you can see Mary Poppins is a very personal thing to me. Enough so when I saw “Saving Mr. Banks” a few years ago, I cried through most of the film, and the truth is their are certain scenes that continue to make me cry.

Naturally I was excited to see a Poppins sequel, and even though I had some strong doubts I went to see the film yesterday. I sat through 34 minutes of the film before I waked out of the theater. It’s not that the new is terrible, it was just me. That scene of the kids taking a bath that suddenly turns into an underwater animated swimming scene with giant sand shovels and buckets and even a gigantic beach umbrella was just too much for me. So I left and I know I was not the only one. In fact I saw 3 others leave, I assume for the same reason.

So if you hear from someone that they left the new Poppins film, you now know why. It just hit them on a personal level like it did me. I wish things could be different but I doubt it. But either way once this hits the streaming services I am going to try and watch it again. But then I can skip through scenes that are too much for me.
