Apparently, a portion of my fic series, Harry Potter and the Years of Rebellion, was deleted due to the inclusion of an excerpt of song lyrics. Said lyrics were being sung aloud by a character; were in context; were within the bounds of Fair Use standards; and were properly cited at the end of the chapter, in APA format. This happened without a single prefacing review or Email or PM from site administrators or anyone else. Meanwhile, this site remains littered with fanfics where characters acknowledged as underage engage in activities that would make 99% of the people I know blush, and a host of other blatant terms violations. Considering that HPYOR was here for 4 years without one seriously unkind comment from anyone, I can only assume that I ran afoul of Critics United or similar nonsense.
I returned to FF-dot-net in 2009 after leaving in 2006, in protest of a massive author purge that was horribly arbitrary and impacted some of the best writers to ever grace this site. It appears the foolishness has returned. For those interested enough to have a look, my accumulated efforts may be found at fp-dot-fanficauthors-dot-net. I'm done with posting here.
