* {{Bowdlerize}}: {{Lemon}} and {{Lime}} are specifically prohibited by the site's guidelines. In fact, it is the sudden enforcement of these guidelines that led to the first [[ThePurge Purges]] of stories and accounts in the site.
* MostFanFicWritersAreGirls: According [[http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1001950,00.html this]] 2002 Magazine/TimeMagazine article, around 80% of FFN users at the time it was written claimed to be female.
* ThePurge: As noted above, FFN is notorious for regularly and without warning deleting old and obscure content as in to save disk space.

In response to the enforcement action, an estimated around 40,000 users migrated the site in favor of Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn, Website/FicWad, and other fanfic-hosting sites. Key reasons for the outcry were complaints that there was no notice to change the "offending" material. (It should be noted however, that as stated the [[http://www.fanfiction.net/tos/ Terms of Service agreement]] for Fanfiction.net, "[=FanFiction=].Net reserves the right to remove Content and User Submissions without prior notice.")

Other reasons for protest include the admins providing vague and unclear reasons for removal of stories, or sometimes no reason given at all. There were also a small number of cases of wrongful removal of stories which were compliant with the guidelines. Some authors who appealed the removal reported that these stories were reinstated with reviews intact on successful appeal. If the author offers to change the content of their stories so that it doesn't match the original scripts they're based on they may also be able to avoid having them taken down. The guidelines however have essentially made {{Film Fic}}s no longer allowed, while {{Twice Told Tale}}s are risky at best.
