DeviantArt needs more specific filtering.

Hi all, I haven't posted in a really long time. I took a bit of a hiatus from DA to concentrate on school, but now I'm back and it seems like everywhere I look there is porn on DA. 
Now, I respect the human body, and I even appreciate artistic nudes... I also appreciate people TRYING to be artistic when they take nudes (all photographers have to start somewhere). HOWEVER, since I've come back all I see is anal and vaginal spreading or people posting plain cellphone nudie shots with captions that say to buy their masturbation videos. These have been reported apparently but no one thought there was anything wrong with them so they never got taken down.

The thing is, I like seeing mature content sometimes - and this extends beyond nudity like horror and gore. I love looking at peoples FX makeup of wounds or the horror and macabre photography section. I think deviantart needs to have a more specific maturity content filter. Like if I just want to filter out nudes but not the other stuff. Mature content can be more than just nudity... but I just want the masturbation and anal pictures to go away lol not all the other stuff. 

Anyway, this is my complaint for today. I canceled my core membership until submission guidelines or filtering change. I'm a very tolerant person but a lot of what I'm seeing isn't even art. I mean I even saw someone fisting someone else for crying out loud! lol

I reported some topless girl yesterday holding up a sign that said "buy my videos" like oh yeah that's art alright. *eyeroll*

The creepy fetish and porn stuff has become an issue over the past few years, I swear you didn't see much of it unless you went out of your way to actually look for it a few years ago and now it seems to be everywhere. 

If you want to see more filtration tools added to the site that would allow you to tailor your browsing experience to your liking and block out what you don't want to see, you should visit the suggestions forum and upvote some of the tag blacklisting suggestions like this one  deviantart.zendesk.com/hc/en-u…

Thank you.  I upvoted for you.  I agree with this!  It would be a huge improvement to DA.  I also wish that when we block another user, it would effectively ignore them on the forum as well.  In other words, I wish I could hide the comments of trolls and drama whores on the DA forum as well as the nasty fetish deviations on the rest of DA.

If you can use greasemonkey or tampermonkey, this will likely solve the problem until they fix it > DeviantArt Filter v5.0.2 by rthaut

I use it all the time, and I've built up such a large database, that I seldom see anything that I think should be filtered.
