Before anything ever happens, this thread was meant to be addressed straight to the Kemono Admin and Owner.1 post omitted. Click reply to view.
After you announced that you would end the open-source program of kemono.party on , I had a mixed feeling about this. I think you need to consider some facts that:
- Kemono is the one and only website to ever release exclusive content faster than any other website on the internet.
- kemono is sort of like the main central hub of leaked content. Most of the content that has been reposted on ehentai and f95zone, for example, is straight from Kemono. Once the importer is dead, there will be no new content posted there.
- Making it close-source doesn't mean that you can slow down big companies such as Patreon from continuing to exploit and sabotage the kemono importer. Though it can make the development and fixing of kemono much slower, and this basically affects kemono and not the big companies. Although you might go on and say "there were only 3 developers working on it," to me, the purpose of open-source is to improve kemono experience, and we didn't really know who might have contributed, as some of the contributions can be anonymous. Correct me if I'm wrong.
- Although I'm not good at this and correct me if I'm wrong, as kemono deals with people's vulnerabilities such as their cookies, which is also a session key, making it close-source can reduce the confidence of people to share their session keys with kemono, such that they don't know what kind of data is being taken since kemono will be close-source in the future.
Also I forgot to add that if everyone ever remember seiso.party that website was build based on kemono code and on reverse engineer its design and internal working. This makes it cost and time efficient.

I do not agree, having the code as open source allows patreon and similar sites to have a pretty good understanding of how kemono.party works, making it closed source would make it harder to gather information about the sites' underlying systems, thus, making it harder to counter. But I could be wrong, I'm just a normal user, not a developer.
Reminder that it is totally impossible for anyone to know for sure that kemono.party (or any other pirate site) is actually using the code that it publishes to repositories.
What is anyone going to do if it's not? Sue?
security through obscurity only goes so far, but it's better than the zero security that full open source has
the question right now is, do this huge million dollar company actually care a website like kemono for leaking content. and not even a good and safe content, majority of it is porn art which they would likely to not get involved with to avoid getting cancelled, scandal, etc
