    hath-a-applecore2 got a reaction from JayDee in My first official publication of "The Wicked Games (Volume One): The Capsized Universe" available to buy on Amazon!   
    Yeah I guess this would also be me proudly announcing that I am a published writer too. Lol.
    Anyway, yes for any interested readers you can purchase it on paperback (book format) here or if you have a CS account, you can also purchase it from here as well.
    If anyone wishes to buy and read my tale, I sincerely hope you guys enjoy it as much as I've had writing it.

    By the way, before I took this final step, which the user had been warned would happen, I let slide another 2 instances, rather than the action I'm taking now. I considered the user's age (she's quite young), and HOPED that she'd finally get the hint and actually abide by the site rules and guidelines. It didn't work...

    After my first deletion, this is what I had to say:

    "Ok, My entire account was deleted and I am not sure why. I tried to sign on and it just wouldn’t work, I searched for my story and it wasn’t their, I searched for my pen name, and it wasn’t there either, so IDK what that’s all about but I am soooo annoyed."

    This is what I sent after my eighth deletion:
    "My stories have been hidden from Adultfanfiction because they are saying I am under age and this is the fourth time this has happened. I'm not underage."

    Want to know when those accounts were created? Here's a list:
    JenMarie – registered May 17, 2009 – 15 years old
    DarkDesire – registered June 1, 2009 – 15 years old
    JenMarie – registered June 6, 2009 – 15 years old
    openmind – registered June 30, 2009 – 15 years old
    JennMarie55 – registered October 25, 2009 – 16 years old
    JennMarie – registered October 25, 2009 – 16 years old
    dontforget1 – registered December 11, 2010 – 17 years old
    XxScriboxX – registered July 16, 2011 – 17 years old
    XxScriboxX – registered May 27, 2011 – 17 years old

    But I didn't stop there. Afer they told me they had deleted all my hard work that I wrote while I was a minor, and posted on an adult site with no thought whatsoever to the possible legal consequences to the actual, real, human people that run the site or the owner of the site, I created another account. And another. And another.

    I'm also a review whore. That means I won't update unless you review.

    And I tell my readers lies.

    Yep.

    I tell them that I was of age, and that the site moderators "don't like me." And if I'm not telling them that, I'm telling them this:
    "I was over eighteen when my account was deleted (but seventeen when I made the account) and lost all of my work."

    See that list above? The account I'm referring to was JennMarie. I was 16, not 17. But, we already know I can't count (reference how many times I say I was deleted, and how many times I actually had been).

    So, then I decided that I would just violate other rules. Like flaming.

    That's right - I decided to flame the site.
    "And on a side note, I hate, hate, hate, HATE, this effing site."

    You know what, though? Posting here's a privilege, not a right, and I won't be able to anymore.

    Because not only did I do this, I was warned:
    "From this point, you will be monitored for any further Terms of Service and/or Content Guideline infractions. Should staff find any more, you will be Hall of Shamed for the chronic violations and permanently banned."

    That was after I admitted that I shouldn't have uploaded two versions of the same story.

    This is what I was told:
    "Normally, the fourth account gets you permanently banned. It certainly has any other user who persisted in returning to the site prior to their 18th birthday."

    And that's absolutely true. I was given a chance that all of those other children weren't, ONLY because my account was deleted after I had turned 18. And this has been addressed ad nauseum by the moderators in the forum - just go here:
    http://www2.adult-fanfiction.org/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&search_in=forums
    and type in JennMarie or Traded and you'll get a ton of threads about my inability to have consideration for the legal repercussions of my actions.

    I told the site admin that I was "unaware" of the risk my presence posed to the site itself while I was underage. But you know what? I tell everyone I'm a history major, and history majors have to read - a LOT. So, I should have been able to read

    "By entering these Archives you are stating that you are 18 years of age or older and that you are allowed to view adult material in your area."

    "By accessing AFF and/or creating an account I agree that I am at least 18 years of age and legally allowed to view adult related material."

    And I should have been able to read the entirety of this document: http://www.adult-fanfiction.org/guidelines.php

    I should have paid attention to the last paragraph of the Terms of Service:
    "You understand that if any of the above requirements are violated that your account and/or submissions are subject to being hidden, edited, deleted, or being taken control of by the administrators of the site, without notice. You understand that your ability to return to the site after these actions are taken is solely at the discretion of the site's staff and is not subject to discussion."

    But I didn't. And those failures are my own, no matter how much I want to blame the staff for them. I received a warning that I would be banned, something that in the past has only ever been sent to still underage children to warn them to keep away from the site if they want the privilege of being here once they're adults.

    So because I've decided that I'm entitled to break the rules and regulations of the site, and because I've decided that their warnings meant nothing, I'm not allowed here anymore. I'm permanently banned. You'll never be able to read my works here again. Ever.




    Any flames in the forum or to TOS or admin mail about the banning of this user can and will result in repercussions on the flamer's account. Any flames sent to staff members individually will be addressed in the same manner as well. Take note of the Terms of Service you agree to by accessing the site (no flaming is allowed), and understand that those regulations are universally and equally applied.

    There seems to be a common misconception that we do this to be mean, that we are just horrible nasty people who get off deleting stuff from the site. I assure you, this isn't the case. Let me step this out further.
    Did you know that if a parent of an underage user filed a lawsuit, first off, I own the site as an individual not a corporation so I'm personally liable, they will come after me? I'm not rich. I live paycheck to paycheck. I cannot afford that kind of lawsuit. The site never has more than about $700-800 in our account at any one time. That won't pay for a lawyer. Second off, because it deals with sexual content and a minor that depending on the type of suit filed, I could end up with a criminal record and being listed on a sex offenders registry? That can effectively ruin my chances for a decent paying job for the rest of my life, never mind negatively impact my fiances career as he is military.
    I take these risks because I believe in the site and what it provides - The only thing I ask in return is that people follow the very simple rules we have. The only time we enjoy deleting something is when someone plagiarizes someone elses work because well, that's truly vile! Beyond that, it's never fun to have to delete someone's story.
    If they don't back their stories up and we delete for a ToS violation - That isn't our responsibility. I know it's been drilled into my head time and time again to always have a back up of important things - If their story wasn't important enough to them to back it up, I cannot and will not take responsibility for that decision.
