Organization for Transformative Works under attack from malicious actor/s 

Just been reading this update by OTW.

Fecking hell, this is terrible.

@hit_the_books holy hell, hope they're able to deal with the attackers. I mean why would anyone ever.

Note, I didn't understand the abbreviation CESM and, having read the notice, I'm guessing it has something to do with child sexual abuse materials but a search wasn't much help. Just a heads up in case it's opaque to others as well.

@ljwrites sorry about that, ingot two of the letters the wrong way round in my haste to post.

It should be CSEM.

@hit_the_books oh that makes a ton more sense, ty.

@hit_the_books Jeez louise...

I'm kinda surprised this hasn't happened before, since this seems to be the attack du jour on tweeter against adult artists and writers, right now, and there's a lot of hate against Ao3 for hosting works they don't like. As if it weren't ironic enough.

Them poor volunteers, man. I hope whoever is involved gets help.

@ToonLink whoever it is, if they get caught, won't be dealt with kindly under the law of most countries.

@hit_the_books what the fuck. this is horrible why would people do this?

@kycm_ancy well, I can think of several groups that might want to.

Antis

Rightwing types without 4chan involvement

Rightwing types with 4chan involvement

Antis because they've been vocal about hating how AO3 isn't a puritanical online resource.

The other two because it represents true freedom of expression, sexual liberation of many groups, and is predominantly a LGBTQIA+ supporting site.

@hit_the_books the fact that antis have a history of sending csam to the people they dislike is super jarring too. like I'd expect no less from the right-wing especially the 4chan/8chan dwellers but you'd think with the semblance of moral standing antis have they wouldn't do such a thing
