Spam on deviantART: The Problem, and the Answer.
How to define ‘spam’?  Oh, yeah, I know: Bloody annoying.
It’s also several other things: Spam is unnecessary, provocative, and it’s everywhere. Recently, there’s been a huge influx of it on deviantART – notes are being sent to a large percentage of active deviants on an almost daily basis. Notes linking to scams (mainly fake competitions such as Poetry.com), advertisements, and every other annoying kind of place you can think of. Thankfully, this influx of spam is due to lessen because of some great work by the dA IT monkeys. However, some people will continue to spam. We as a community need to help minimise the impact of whatever spam there is… this article will tell you how to cope in the now-unlikelier instance of someone spamming.
People that receive spam get bloody annoyed – quite rightly so. They think someone’s sent them a kind note, or left them a kind comment, and it turns out to be somebody trying to take advant

CEA Update for September 5, 2007
UPDATES FROM realitysquared : Spamming and Scams.
This week I’d like to point out a troublesome onsite trend which has affected many people and which we are working diligently to end.
As many users have noticed a large number of accounts have been created lately which either comment on user pages, deviations or send notes to hundreds or even thousands of deviants seemingly at random.
The contents of these comments and notes read approximately as follows:
OMG! you're a GENIUS! Why don't you join the poetry contest from [link] ? Free to enter, 100k prizes. You MUST win it!</i>
The [link] is typically a “tinyurl” which disguises the true destination of the hyperlink.
If you receive a comment or a note which contains this phrase please do not click the link as they have proven to be malicious destinations (viruses), outright scams or simply annoying advertisements.
Please file a helpdesk report if you receive a comment or note containing that pasted phras

I think it's safe to say that my time at DeviantART has officially come to a close.  I haven't posted anything here in over two years.  However, I am still writing and have restarted my Scattered Thoughts website over at wordpress if anyone is still interested in following my writing.  I can't say that I'm the best writer but I do my best!

I'll leave everything up here that I've already posted because it's just plain rude to deny people access to the resources I made for photoshop and the like.

Feel free to pop on over to my blog if you're interested in reading that!

Peace out DA!  It was a good run while I was here. ^^

I'm glad that you like them! ^__^

If I ever get photoshop back (my hard drive fried and took everything I had with it) then I'd love to make some more brushes!

Also:

6. Do not post any of my resources on any website without my permission. I want to be credited for my resources and posting them on a website without my permission is rude, inappropriate and not funny at all.

Next time, please ask me first.

Ok, but they go directly to your page and they download it from your page, so they can see your work where it is. But next time I'll ask you first. :hug:
