    Please provide some additional information on the "Sean The Artist" website. What sort of stories did it showcase? I am familiar with an artist by the name "Sean" and who produced a shitload of homoerotic drawings. Is there any connection between your Sean and mine?

    It was a site of stories involving both Male and female deaths. The stories were well written. One way of accessing the site was through myregisteredsite. The site was dedicated to John Klimac, a gay artist , who died in 2005 and who I believe to have had mental health issues.
    In his apologia for closing down the site Greg, the webmaster, made the valid point that with thousands of stories and links he couldn’t take the risk that one might be in breach of the new censorship laws.

    Hope this helps

    Yes, that did help, lindier. It answered my question and then some. Now I'm going to look up John Klimac, because you have aroused my curiosity.

    Holy moly -- I found the page with the the memorial to John Klamik, which you mentioned, lindier. Yep, John and "Sean" were indeed one and the same person! I liked the drawings by "Sean"...didn't know he had mental issues.

    I think I read it somewhere but I could be mistaken. Snag is the main biographical details were on Sean the artist, now inaccessible. Certainly I can’t now find any evidence to substantiate it.

    Actually, I didn't even know Sean was dead, but I'm not surprised. So many of the great artists of homoerotica lived back in the Olden Days, and are dead and buried.

    John Klamik is the correct name of the artist who signed his drawings Sean. (His name and picture are on the site seantheartist.com, the content of which was recently taken offline.) The site served in part as an archive for gay male extreme fetish fiction by various writers and work by various artists. I don't wish to second guess Greg's decision to remove the content from the site, and I do not pretend to be an expert on the new US legislation known as FOSTA and SESTA. However, everything I've read about those laws indicates their purpose is to control human trafficking and transactional sexual encounters. That is why craigslist dropped many personal ads in response. To my knowledge, the site seantheartist.com did not contain advertisements from persons offering or seeking sex and did not promote sexwork or human trafficking. I could be wrong, but so far I have not found a connection between this legislation and the publication of fiction and art. There have always been policymakers who would gladly introduce more censorship, but we should not overreact to FOSTA/SESTA.
