wow, how long has this been on? lol... I just got on for the first time in MONTHS! truth be told, I was and still am scared of all the stuff that I missed out on... but none the less, here I am to watch and reply all I can... until the library kicks me out. anyway, I agree! DOWN WITH DARAMA!! WOOHOO!!
Danny, my friend, Danny... I so fucking hate the word "dArama". You see, some people make a fuss because they're idiots and reveal a deep hate for dA. But some people care about this site enough to complaint about it and fight for what they believe is right. Loving deviantart mustn't imply people should follow everything like they're blind or must agree with every decision. Some critique out of assholeness. some do it out of dA love. And I love you, my friend, but these things aren't as linear. tits
Yes, of course there is a distinct difference in the way people complain, this was rather an impulsive news article published without much thought because some things I noticed pissed me off. Though I think it's a shame that most people forget why they are here.
Sometimes I see things happen that I really think to myself, do those people remember why they are here. It's a rather blind way to vent my frustrations towards everyone (making the drama myself).
But I hate to see people being disrespectful towards each other, that can really anger me.
There are so much great people here who leave dA or just stay in the background because of those disrespectful people. Not everyone has the guts to stand up for themselves, especially if other people keep burning you down.
And looking at everyone who already have left it looks like those people are winning.
You inspired me to be more to people than the standard "thank you very much and you're very welcome" on here. I think that that interaction will eventually make you a better artist and help other people become better artists. Which for me is still the most important thing.
