Warning: long rant ahead >.<
okay, so it seems like every day I visit this damn website, it drives me away more and more. the website itself is fine, but what really drives me away is the goddamn PEOPLE. especially the people who fish for attention. I'm not pointing fingers, but i'm watching this one person who had a journal entry titled,"just shoot me", and the only thing they had typed in this journal was "."...
seriously? SERIOUSLY?? oh my god, don't submit shit like that if you're not going to explain anything??? it really makes it look like you're only fishing for pity-filled comments, and it sickens me SO MUCH. why can't people on here just fucking tell us what's wrong, and if it's SO personal just don't say anything at all????
and then there's the people who fish for comments. the really good artists who say that their art "looks like shit" and that "they'd rather throw their art in the garbage". okay, if you hate your art SO much, then don't fucking post it on the internet! if you're so fucking ashamed of your art, then why are you showing it off to people here?? and why do you get so fucking mad when people steal it, it's not like they're stealing quality work, right???
AND THEN there are the people who are all like,"I DUNNO, I THINK I'MMA JUST DEACTIVATE FOR A DAY THEN COME BACK TO SEE HOW ALL OF MY WATCHERS REACTED TO ME 'LEAVING' LOLOL" seriously, if you're going to deactivate your account then you better be gone for MONTHS, and even then that's not really a long enough time. don't just deactivate for a day or two, then come back and marvel at how much everyone was upset to see you go. OBVIOUSLY if you have so many watchers, people are going to fucking care if you leave, you dumbass!! and if you're going to be gone for weeks because of vacation or something, then you really don't need to deactivate your account for it. seriously, nobody is going to hack your account in such a small amount of time.
AND THEN there are the popular deviants on here to send their watchers to attack people they don't like. do you know how immature that makes you look? it seriously makes you look like you can't stick up for yourself. i argue with people all the time on here, and not ONCE have i posted a journal saying,"BAWWW THIS PERSON IS A BIG MEANIE HEAD BECAUSE THEY SAID MY KITTY IS TOO SKINNY BAWWWWWWWWWW TELL THEM TO GO DIE IN A HOLE OH BTW I'M CRYING AND DON'T FORGET TO COMMISSION ME!!!!" also, about commissions... paypal is a good way to get money, but just think for a second: MORE THAN HALF THE PEOPLE ON THIS DAMN WEBSITE ARE BELOW THE AGE OF 18, LET ALONE 13. not many people have jobs, and not many people have extra money to spare for a fucking sketch that's $10. seriously, just use the fucking commissions widget that dA GAVE you, so that people who only have points can commission you and your greedy self can get some cash out of it.
well "greedy" isn't the BEST word, i'll admit uhuhu
just, ugh... the people on this website just really piss me off sometimes orz
