Hey all,

One of those shy quiet lurker types here.

Noticed that extramorphs.com seems to be giving a 403 Forbidden for about a week now.

Anyone know what's happening there?

No idea. And now it looks like the Deviant Art account is deactivated as well.

From an anonymous post on 4chan:

"Sort of, from talking to Qalexandrian. There was a user by the name of MorphMan that was spam posting bad manips several times a day, and sockpuppeting support for himself when people were looking at his work and downvoting it because people weren't fans of his work in general. Extra found out, and warned MorphMan. MorphMan took it rather poorly, and started harassing other users, so his account was banned and his gallery stripped. Turns out the site only had functionality for IP banning and deleting user content, and the mod team was literally two or three people, so this guy's holy crusade of pissing people off pissed Extra off and he took it down. It might come back later, but the site has to be updated to deal with users like MorphMan, or just problem users in general."

Polyanna deleted their gallery on MBAP too. :(
