Wait - We'd lose how much money?

Someone finally told the CEO that they were in fact a porn site.
 
2021-08-25 8:28:19 AM  
Nice to see they decided to reverse their planned bankrupcy.
 
2021-08-25 8:29:46 AM  
Figured they'd either reverse this or drop a new OnlyFans2 - Adult Bugaloo Edition™ URL the day after this policy change went into effect.

Every principle has a price.
 
2021-08-25 8:30:08 AM  
Oh, so they don't want to go out of business after all.
 
2021-08-25 8:30:58 AM  
Well, f*cking duh, Tumblr nuked themselves, and that didn't work out too well.
 
2021-08-25 8:31:16 AM  
I guess all those thots and prayers worked.

I assure you, his daughter knows fully well.

That's it for for the thread. I'll get the lights.

It's nice to know that this completely morally bankrupt idea appears to be holding fast.
 
2021-08-25 8:32:13 AM  
I'm old, so help me here.....say my friend went on a golf trip and a couple of the girls working the bag drop told my friend that they made good money in tips at the course, but did better on their OnlyFans site. Can I tell my friend that everything is going to be all right for these young entrepreneurs?
 
2021-08-25 8:32:17 AM  
How was the headline not "OnlyKidding" ?
 
2021-08-25 8:32:38 AM  
They secured assurances from some credit cards companies to be allowed to keep taking payments,

or they used this to leverage an exclusive deal with some other agency like vendmo to an exclusive contract where they only take 5%
 
2021-08-25 8:32:48 AM  
I'm genuinely surprised they actually took it back. I guess money talks.
 
2021-08-25 8:33:03 AM  
Damnit and people so wanted to unemploy all those nice ladies.

What scumbags.
 
2021-08-25 8:33:22 AM  
They've had ads on reddit for a few months now trying to pitch themselves to non-porn creators.  Guess that didn't work out.
 
2021-08-25 8:33:35 AM  
The comments in that twitter feed are NSFW!

Brilliant turn of phrase.

Tumblr was also a massive security risk.

Original: Original Tweet:

OnlyFans: Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard. We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change. OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.


So, they basically told Mastercard to go pound sand?

Porn is big business, fundamentalists should know considering how much they consume.
 
2021-08-25 8:35:02 AM  
Hilarious. And in an odd way proof of the "no press is bad press" maxim.  Angel investors only stepped in because of the public kerfuffle. And now people can continue to enjoy their homemade direct to the consumer porn.
 
2021-08-25 8:35:28 AM  
There were already competitors ready to accept the sites that OnlyFans was ready to kick off.  There would have been an exodus.

I should buy "OnlyFans2"

That sound you just heard was thousands of simps opening their wallets again.

This is going to be the underappreciated comment of the thread.
 
2021-08-25 8:36:21 AM  
Probably some rich christian/republican asshole wanted to invest but told them to kick out LGBTQs or something but then onlyfans realized that they would be done if they did that so told him/her to get farked and they would get money elsewhere.

Sounds like borderline morons run onlyfans.
 
2021-08-25 8:36:28 AM  
It looks like the religious fundamentalists and SWERFs, but I repeat myself, have lost this battle.

Someone told the CEO they needed some free publicity.
 
2021-08-25 8:37:11 AM  
This was totally not a "New Coke" publicity act.
 
2021-08-25 8:37:30 AM  
Whew, I was worried I would have to find another site to host my content.
 
2021-08-25 8:37:33 AM  
Do be honest I think they are  trying to prevent being  link to prostitution and/or trafficking .

Those ads were absolutely insane. Did/Does anyone, anywhere think of OnlyFans as anything but a porn site?

If you legitimately attempted to do as those ads say, and share your hobby via OnlyFans, you have to know that 99% of people would assume you were doing porn with a specific theme, right?

The fundamentalists are trying to get the big card companies to blackball onlyfans and all their employees because they don't like the fact that women are employing themselves.
 
2021-08-25 8:38:26 AM  
Was FansOnly already registered? Because that's a lot better name.

In the US, money is the only thing that talks.

Most Redditors don't care that they're a massive unpaid crowdsource.

Fanly was making leaps in market share while theirs was tanking.
 
2021-08-25 8:40:37 AM  
I think for most the exodus already started, and they felt the bad media/pushback. The internet moves on quick.

/Except for FARK, I always come back.

Generation_D: There were already competitors ready to accept the sites that OnlyFans was ready to kick off.  There would have been an exodus.


Based off of that twitter thread, there already has been, and will still continue to be an exodus regardless.

Seems some people are suspicious of a company that tells you to screw off, even if they take it back a week later.

If all the pr0n were taken off the Internet, the only site left would be Fark.com, which would immediately change its name to BringBackThePr0n.com.
 
2021-08-25 8:41:52 AM  
There should be an onlyfans.ic.gov...because the SCIF can be a lonely, boring place.

Sorelian's Ghost: Nice to see they decided to reverse their planned bankrupcy.


Knowing corporate execs, it was probably a very tough sell.

Going bankrupt might have been preferable to admitting you were so moronically stupid in the first place.

No, Drew would just reinstate the Boobies/Weeners tags and rake.

If enough people want to pay to watch me whittling naked that I can make a living of it, I say let's do it.

Can you even imagine being able to make real money just for getting nude?
