Since it's exceptionally easy to only block the actual ads on swfchan (no ads are actually served from swfchan's own domain) and because the current ruleset is actually causing visitors to see more ads I thought this matter would be quickly resolved. However, I have been trying to contact EasyList for over three weeks now with no response. Therefore I feel the need to ask my visitors to e-mail them as well to bring attention to this issue and show that regular users of EasyList care about swfchan, not just the guy running the site.
They have two e-mails: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The first one is the primary mail but I've sent mail to both and received a reply from neither. Have sent using different mail accounts as well so I know there was no sending issues on my end. I should have written this announcement earlier but this whole thing felt like such an open-and-shut case that I would never have imagined swfchan still being blocked like this after three weeks. Big thanks to anyone helping out!
Note: I'm not writing this because of money, the site's income is actually the same as before (less visitors but less blockers equal same ad views). I am however worried that in the long run, in a year or so, this may lead to less links leading to swfchan which would sure enough finally kill it off the web, especially with the dwindling flash support these days. I also don't think this is a fair practice by EasyList, there's no reason what-so-ever to block swfchan itself. I don't serve ads and an adblocker should block ad providers, not sites that use ad providers. I also don't limit anyone blocking ads from using the site in any way. It feels like the EasyList authors took just a minute to look at swfchan, said "fuck it" and proceeded to block the whole thing instead of only the ads.
So if you have a moment I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to e-mail them about this. Just be polite and ask EasyList to block only the ads on swfchan, not the actual content on swfchan itself. There's a discussion thread over here.
First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to report a flash file. Since swfchan is so huge I can't possibly check every last file on it (well OK in theory I can but it would take a while to say the least) so it is people like YOU that help to make sure swfchan maintains a legal state and stays online.
Secondly, please only report illegal files according to the Swedish law. To be honest this pretty much translates to "please only report in-real-life underage pornogrophy" (not drawings since they have no age). Underage means below 15 years of age in the country the server's in.
Judging what is legal and what is illegal can be very difficult sometimes. When in doubt it can be a good idea to check the flash file's wiki page, maybe it has some threads attached to it? If nobody have said anything about it being illegal in any of its threads in the past, then maybe it isn't. Keep in mind that drawn/animated characters have no age because they aren't real (although they may not be morally appropriate this site does not take action against flash files unless they are in fact illegal).
Try not to report videos where the girl pretends to be younger than she is. Here's a famous example where the girl looks underage, mainly due to the camera angle, however she was actually >=18 at the time of filming. This is a popular roleplay and can be hard to spot. A good rule of thumb is that if the video looks professional it's probably legal.
Remember that swfchan is a flash archive - as long as the flash is legal it may be archived. This means that you shouldn't report broken flashes, or those that are designed to only be annoying, since they won't be removed. In the past I deleted redirectors but as my time has become limited those are now allowed to stay as well. Completely deleting a file from the site system is actually somewhat time consuming unfortunately.
