Has anyone had any stories pulled from ff.net? There seems to be a purge of M and even T rated stories going on. Buffy, Naruto, Twilight, and Harry Potter seem to be among the hardist hit, but Yu-Gi-Oh has lost around seven hundred stories. ( A French Writer has done some research, and posted a breakdown of the top twenty fandoms on ff.netrants)

Theory is that a bot program is seeking out key words in summaries.

I haven't lost any - dunno if I've lost any that have been faved - but another friend of mine just reported losing one of her Transformers fics just yesterday.

Even more disturbing is that ff.net has been blocking attempts to export stories to AO3 for at least a month.


Though there's always just uploading directly to AO3. That's what I do. But still....

Hm. I have exactly ONE rated M story and it has the word "incest" in the summary (it actually says NOT incest, because it's a Jou/Shizuka story and I wanted to be clear it was not romantic in nature, but a bot reading would just home in on the individual word). But anyway, none of my stories, including that one, have been pulled, as far as I can tell...
