Interests
(Glutton for punishment - I am trying yet again- 8/11/2017) to get some sort of DD nod, but this was the consequence of my past effort via another group I thought I stood a chance with.)


And this is the response I got:

----------
(id removed for the sake of their privacy) said the following:

"Hello!
I took a look at your gallery and I think you're doing a great job. It's not quite the DD skill level yet, but you are very close and I expect that with a bit of development, you'll definitely get to be featured eventually.
Have a good weekend."


----------
And this was my response to 'them':

"I honestly do not know what to say to that after some of the DDs I've seen here already.
Ah well.
Consider my work a lost cause and drop me off your radar.
Thanks."

I'm not going to bother with the folks who run this site.  I've seen some of the work that gets the DD nod and can only wonder what the criteria is, so I'm washing my hands of the whole endeavor and just doing what I want to do.
I've been a deviant for 7 years now by the way.
