This was the most stupid action done by gurochan mods in all gurochan history. (and not because of that ridiculous paywall respect.)
I was not even interested in that thread but since it made such a fuss, I checked it on archive.org as suggested by >>9972
This thread has none of the paid pictures of that butthurt artist, but from the discussion, it can be suspected that 250 of them were posted.
the problem with gurochan mods is that they do not even take any slightest effort to check what is going on there and deleted the thread after the person who posted those pictures deleted them himself and there was no more any reason to delete the thread anymore.
Ironically enough all of those pictures are fully available on the internet for free already and anyone willing to get them just needs to do google search and find them. It is unclear if gurochan was the source of that torrent or pictures from the torrent were just posted on gurochan but either way, it is too late anyone who wants them can get them for free. So those pirated pictures happens to be the only content saved from that thread LOL
Looks like a request for forbidden feast pictures on req board also got deleted.
I suspect now the artist is supposed to quit as promised because fortunately there is no way to stop piracy. Maybe finally everyone will understand that this is a futile fight, sooner or later everything will be posted for free if it has any value. If you try to base your payment model on the attempt to prevent people from accessing your work that will absolutely fail.
