That's it, DeviantArt. Fuck you, fuck your twisted copywrite policies, fuck your misplaced priorities. You used to be a wonderful website, and I loved you. But you grew exponentially, and for each shit that you gave to corporate endevours, you gave one shit less about everything else. Things that are important for keeping a community a happy, friendly, fair place. You've fucked up too many times, and I'm sick of staying here and putting up with it. I'm out of here.

I will leave with an explanation.

Normally, on this day, I would be adding a deviation to my gallery, thanking everyone for helping me to reach 20k pageviews. Instead, I post this journal, and procede to erase every trace of my artwork from this website. I'm only leaving up the stamps because they are technically not my "artwork", and because I would feel bad for the people who enjoy using them.

A day ago, I logged on to see two messages sitting in my inbox, saying that two of my deviations had been removed due to copywrite violation.

The two deviations that were removed as "art theft"? My SPINZAKU and KALLEN PUNCH stamps.

STAMPS. FUCKING STAMPS.

You can't honestly tell me that the dA staff is going to go on a crusade through the ENTIRE stamp category and remove EVERY SINGLE stamp that uses an image not made by the deviant? NEWS FLASH: THAT'S LIKE, MORE THEN THREE QUARTERS OF THEM! THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF THEM! Yet MINE are singled out? Was it because of their popularity? Was it because of my clear and open dissaproval of the direction this site is going in? Is it because I'm no longer subscribed? Because for some reason, I'm finding it VERY difficult to believe that they genuinely give a flying fuck about copywrite violation. Want me to explain why?

Because "Twilight Nonsense Breakdown" is still there, in my gallery, untouched. You let it be. The dialogue is not mine, not even the stamp base itself. This stamp does not fit the criteria of your copywrite policy which states "Your deviantART submissions must consist entirely of your own work or valid stock resources and must not include works from copyrighted sources".

Because "Coffee: Sleep when you Die" is still there, in my gallery, untouched. You let it be. The dialogue is not mine, neither is the image. This stamp does not fit the criteria of your copywrite policy which states "Your deviantART submissions must consist entirely of your own work or valid stock resources and must not include works from copyrighted sources".

Because "Origa Stamp" is still there, in my gallery, untouched. You let it be. The image is clearly not mine. This stamp does not fit the criteria of your copywrite policy which states "Your deviantART submissions must consist entirely of your own work or valid stock resources and must not include works from copyrighted sources".

Because "When Words Fail" is still there, in my gallery, untouched. You let it be. The image is clearly not mine, neither is the dialogue. This stamp does not fit the criteria of your copywrite policy which states "Your deviantART submissions must consist entirely of your own work or valid stock resources and must not include works from copyrighted sources".

You've got to be fucking kidding me. There is REAL art theft on this site, festering and frollicking around, and my harmless fucking stamps, where I clearly state credit where credit is due, get taken down. Stamps that are NO DIFFERENT IN NATURE than almost EVERY other stamp that exists on this website. Give me a fucking break.

By tomorrow morning, my gallery will be gone. My artwork will cease to exist on the face of DeviantArt, and hopefully, the entire internet. I can't support your fucked-up priorities anymore, dA. So long.

To everyone who would like to keep in touch, you can reach me elsewhere on the internet:
