Art theft is probably one of the biggest problems that frequents the deviantART community. People make accounts and post pictures they found online, sometimes claiming they made them, sometimes not saying anything at all, and often times they don't even speak English.
Art theft is upsetting to any artist, whether its theft of their work or someone else's. This often causes deviants to lash out and attack the one committing theft, but this is not a good thing.
Here on dA, stealing art is a bannable offense. Harassment and abuse, are also bannable offenses. I have seen people go to town on a person, leaving nasty comments and sending in ban inquiries before the deviant even has a chance to react.
What we need to keep in mind is that not all of these people are purposely doing this, I've seen several cases where it was not maliciousness, just ignorance.
Harassing someone who is oblivious to the rules, giving death threats, spamming, and any other form of harassment is NOT going to solve t
