Bite My Cock Ring, Ning

Are there any PHP folk out there feeling charitable with their skills?

Just got word from the Reverend Mel that Ning — the site that allows people to create social networks — has decided to shut down her site, Talking Sex Radio. The bastards have taken her content hostage and so far won’t give her a tool to help her migrate to another site, which she has to do by January 1, 2009. Why? Because they claim websites l;ike ours are “beginning to demand too much attention and occupy too many resources of the company.”

Fuck you, Ning. You just can’t handle all the anti-sex, anti-whatever asshats from pouring in hate mail about things they don’t approve of. The CEO Gina Bianchini actually said:

Advertisers don’t like it, Bianchini said. “Our ad partners aren’t big fans of the adult networks and therefore require us to identify adult networks or risk our healthy advertising revenue,” she explained. “We don’t want to be in the policing business and, unchecked, that’s where this is heading.”

Hello? You are in the policing business as of December 1. From now on, you’ll not only have less traffic, but a nauseating policy of intolerance. Don’t worry. I’m sure all the Bambi Fan Groups will come rushing to fill the void. And they’ll probably get hit with just as many DMCA notices as anyone else would.

Mel created TSR and pays a monthly fee to Ning to keep it running so that people could gather and talk about whatever they want, including and especially adult subjects like sex. She wanted it to be free to everyone who wanted to join.

Anyway, Mel can pay for the PHP, just not a lot. If you know someone who’s down with the cause, please let me know.
