Today i have received my own abuse complaint send to myself and my hosting for konachan.com. Below you’ll find the mail send to me, link is NSFW but completely legal obviously.

Judging from the picture there isn’t a trace of child pornography or even lolicon for that matter so it looks like Russia is now going for a full hentai ban. Lucky our main focus is not within Russia so impact after being blocked is low but that doesn’t change the fact that Russia seems to be destroying freedom of speech. For the time being we have blocked Russia from accessing the link they gave us.
