Vindication

Vindication

So. Today I logged in to deviantart for the first time in a very VERY long time. What's up with the logo? As expected my message centre was heaving. Mostly deviations, journals etc. As I haven't submitted anything new in approximately since-the-dawn-of-time I only had 7 comments. But what really made me smile was seeing over 2000 mentions.
