Patreon Hacked, Furries blamed, journalist downloads porn for “work”.
Patreon user info was compromised by a security breach. A Twitter user claiming responsibility offered an online-politics grudge motive, and shared claims that Patreon account data was being misused by the “Yiff.party” website. The prankish claim seems really far fetched to me up front, and the site itself denies any responsibility. But the prank was successful enough to convince the journalist (for a big digital media brand) to download from the site, and seriously report finding nothing but sexy animals.
UT club encourages students to find ‘fursonas’
Whines, from FA.
A standard introduction article from the University of Texas at Austin student newspaper. It adds nothing unexpected, but reads nicely. Congrats to the Longhorn Furs social club.
They have involvement with Whines. It led me to learn the info below, and request a submission for The Furclub Survey of Furry dance parties. Expect more about it soon.
Starting in 2013 and inspired by descriptions of the Frolic in California, Whines started organizing small furry dance events and has held them once every 2-3 months since them. They tend to have an attendance in the 20-40 range with a handful of fursuiters. Most recently the dance was held on UT campus in partership with the University of Texas ‘Longhorn Furs‘ group.
