Heidi,

I have an important question about one of the rules. I've been posting comments like https://www.deviantart.com/comments/1/845172089/4850373807 to tell upset members about other art websites. I do not force anyone to leave. I simply give people options so they can choose to stay or leave DeviantArt. However, DeviantArt has a rule against spamming at https://www.deviantartsupport.com/en/article/why-was-my-account-banned-for-spam-advertising. Accounts that advertise too much can get banned, so do my comments qualify as spam? I think that rule is actually for businesses abusing announcements to advertise their products, or spam bots that post malicious links. I'm just a member who is offering upset people alternatives. Admins read numerous comments at team, but they have not told me to stop when they see my lists of other art websites. Therefore, I don't think I'm breaking a rule, but I'm still asking to make sure if what I'm doing is okay, so please let me know.
