if you're serious about boycotting, read this.big edit!!: please read this comment made by dxd
"DeviantArt needs to generate revenue, whether they're right to do it by a price increase here or not is yet to be seen. They are however in need of funds as they are struggling, as evidenced by the cutting of 50% of the paid staff. They're not being greedy, they're broke."
"What is bad is the failure to communicate the change to people and the reasoning why, because it generates drama like this."
i have moved the previous journal to a sta.sh file. if you would like to read it, it is here. however i feel it no longer applies with the current information (but i'm glad i taught some people how to properly boycott >:P) .
there is still an issue with deviantart's new policy on art theft, and their failure to communicate with their userbase.
Eira, now that I live in a country without SummerAnd you are gone.
And the people here
would not recognise you.
You, who simply stood up from the winter ground
You, who lived too long
in the countryside
of your body.
One night, you loved me
and your mouth burst like a fruit,
too soon, too soon.
You are gone, but still
deliver the same madness to me
that Spring brings for flowers.
I think about where
you put away your sadness:
a country of snow.
I want to lie down
there, like an animal.
I could live for days
beneath your frozen body
