Yesterday, or probably day before yesterday I wanted to find something on Otherkin.net, but it is offline. What do you think has happened? Is it just temporary offline, or it's gone for good?
no idea. it worked fine for me the other day, but now it's gone. perhaps it was taken down temporarily because of that trouble-maker and his #"&"ยง$(&" articles.
I heard about it, but didn't have chance to read them, do you have them saved somewhere?

I couldn't find anything that horrifying in these two articles, they are just written by somebody with totally different perspective, and to me it's quite fun to read them. Why would somebody take down "ok.net" just because this? I don't think this is the reason why it's offline.
well, for a journalist who seems to have got prizes, it's a very poor article.

don't know if it's connected to ok.net, i just thought i'd throw it in.
Iunno, Otherkin.net is working fine for me.

However, their updates *do* mention a lot of trouble they've been having for users who use Internet Explorer. Perhaps your browser is the issue?

And, like AstralSpire, I didn't really find anything horribly wrong with the articles. They're offensive, sure, but it's not like he's flaming us hardcore, like, say, that Encyclopedia Dramatica article. (But ED does that to everyone. Lmao)

I'm of the belief that our beliefs are always going to be a little too "out there" to be fully accepted by the majority, but that's fine. Unless they actually managed to pass a law somewhere that said "you'd have to be spiritually human to have so-and-so rights," (which isn't happening), we're just like everyone else sans a few quirks.

After all, everytime someone brings up the irrationality of my spiritual beliefs, I bring up the irrationality of theirs. We can agree to disagree in most instances.
now it works for me again.

and no, i don't use internet exploiter. *shudders*
Same here (Opera user), their provider probably had some technical difficulties.

I agree with simim23, this kind of artices should be expected so why does somebody make big deal out of it? We should just amuse ourselves, and/or write "official note from community." If we get drag into discussion "under article," and act emotionally, we will be "the unmature ones," and author will get new material for other articles saying for example "Otherkin, or Blaberkin?"
i know he seems to love turning things around, but the way he does it makes it look odd that he's supposed to be a grand-prize winner. in the end, he has more to lose than we do.
